This mini exercise bike is perfect for my needs. At 75 and with arthritis I cant walk any distance and a large static exercise bike just hurts my knees so this compact little bike is ideal. I can exercise sitting down while watching TV or listening to music. It doesnt make any of my joints hurt and just gives me that bit of exertion I need to help keep fit. Great for the arms too. Highly recommended for the more seniors or those with limited mobility.
