This bike is the best we have ever had and we have had a number of them over the years many of which cost 5X more. I wanted this for strengthening my thigh muscles to help with knee pain. My husband tried it and liked it so much we now have to schedule our cycling times around each other. At first the little computer wasnt recording the pulse rate. We called and were immediately sent a new one. We told our kids about it and they are interested especially when we told them the price. We are very happy with it.
