    It took me about 45 minutes to assemble the bike by myself. It seems to be excellent quality, and I love it. I put it in my home office (I’m retired) so I can use it off and on throughout the day. The bike is very quiet, and the tension control is adequate for my needs. One comment about the size. I’m 66 inches and I have to put the seat at the second closest position to reach the pedals. I imagine if you were very short, you might need to put a cushion behind your back to reach the pedals comfortably.

    Although I love the bike, here are some comments about the assembly that you might run into:
    1) The instruction say not to tighten nuts and bolts till instructed to do so. It says this in bold type. But the manual never tells you to tighten anything. Each step tells you to “secure” some part to some other part with bolts, but nowhere does it say to tighten anything. I recommend tightening everything as it is installed rather than waiting till the end when you might forget.
    2) There is an obvious misprint in the instructions on Step 2E: “with four allen bolts and THREE curved washers.” Obviously it means four, and the needed washers are provide.
    3) The tension cable is difficult to connect. Two people would make it easier to hold in place. I did it by myself, but only after realizing I needed to pull HARD to slide the thing into the bracket. There is some video on Amazon of how to do it.
    4) There is a slight design problem with the computer mounting. The bike ships with two screws screwed into the back of the computer case. The instructions tell you to remove those screws, slide the case onto the handlebars, and then screw the screws back in. The problem is that there is really nothing sturdy holding to nuts that the screws screw into in the inside of the case. When you go to screw the screws back in, just a slight push on the screw will cause the nut inside the case to fall out of position, loose inside the case. Once that happens, you can’t screw the screw in. To fix this, I had to remove four small screws to get the back of the case off, put the nuts back where they belonged, and hold them inside the case with masking tape. Then I sealed the case, and I could GENTLY screw the screws in without the nuts falling out of position. Anyway, the computer case is slid onto the mounting pole even without the screws, so it isn’t terrible.
    5) The pedals come with straps to hold your feet in. But the instructions don’t say anything about how to install the straps. It isn’t hard to figure out.
    6) Unless your bike will rest on a carpet, I recommend getting a rubber mat to go under it. This will also help to eliminate any small sounds that the bike might make on a hard floor as you do your workout.

    To preface this review, I like the bike itself. The main issue I had was with the manufacturer. Amazon was generally helpful throughout my experience getting this bike set up, and the customer service representative who helped me did an excellent job.

    Now, I originally ordered this bike from Amazon, and delivery was exactly what you’d expect – a couple of days in transit and bam, big box on the front porch. However, when I opened the box to assemble the bike, I found out that the stabilizers (the two horizontal cylinders at the bottom of the bike, acting as “feet”) didn’t fit. They’d been cut wrong, so it was only possible to fit the screws through on one side. That’s not acceptable for a product like this because if those stabilizers come loose, the user could fall and hurt themselves.

    Now, the papers that come with the bike ask buyers to contact the manufacturer for technical support, so I shrug and do that. Amazon probably doesn’t have individual replacement parts in their warehouses, so yeah. I wait on the phone for a while and eventually get with a rep from the manufacturer, and they say that the parts I need are in-stock and will be sent out shortly.

    About two weeks pass, so I call again to see what’s up. Oh, they’re changing warehouses, they say, and my parts will be sent after that’s done. The unassembled bike is still sitting on my floor, but I shrug and accept it. I call back a while later, and oops, my parts are out of stock now. I can’t get a replacement for another few weeks. I sigh at this point, and call back in another few weeks. The rep tells me it’s going to be another two months or so before they get the parts back in stock.

    At this point, I’m done. Amazon’s policy covers 90 days and it’s already been two months of this bike sitting unusable on my floor. I’m not waiting another two months, so I contact the manufacturer and tell them to cancel my replacement parts order because I’m replacing the entire bike. Amazon gives me no trouble with this, giving me the instructions and even having a truck come to my house to pick it up.

    So the second bike gets shipped out… and it’s lost in transit somewhere between leaving Amazon and arriving at the USPS. Sigh.

    I wait a couple of days just to be sure it’s not a regular delay in the postal system, then contact an Amazon rep. He took a look at the information and agreed it was probably lost in transit, so they sent out another one – this time with guaranteed delivery within a few days, probably paid for by insurance covering the lost bike. I get the third bike two days early, but not before the manufacturer sent out those replacement parts. …You know, the parts I cancelled the order for because I didn’t need them. The parts they shipped to me several days *after* I cancelled the order for them.

    Anyway, I finally have a bike (again). The actual setup, with parts that fit, isn’t so bad. I think one person in reasonable shape can do it by themselves, although there is a point for connecting the computer and tension control bits that can be a little hard with just two hands. Once successfully assembled, the bike works pretty well. I’ve been using it for a few days now, and it’s operated just fine.

    I like the bike itself. However, my experience with the manufacturer was delay after delay, and excuse after excuse, so I lost literal months of time I wanted to spend using this bike and improving my health. So far, it’s a good bike if you want something sturdy and functional. It’s also big enough to work with anyone except the most unusually tall people – I’m pretty tall myself, and there’s a whole lot of extra space still. If you’re looking for an affordable recumbent exercise bike, this is a good choice – but if you have any issues with the parts fitting together, I suggest ignoring the manufacturer and getting it replaced by Amazon. That’s probably going to be a lot easier on you.

    The bike was boxed up very well and very easy to assemble, easy to understand directions and everything you need to put it together is provided. (If you had power tools with allen wrench and phillips head screwdriver it would go a little faster). I put this together by myself (femaie 70yr old). It is a very basic recumbent bike, but serves its purpose. I didn’t want to start out with a lot of money tied up to see if I liked a recumbent bike. However, the tension/resistance isn’t that strong, I started out on the 7 tension, so pretty much maxed that out already, but 7 is comfortable for me. I think the biggest negative is the the seat adjustment, not very easy to do. If you had more than one person using it and had to adjust that each time, it would be miserable. I just had a TKR done 2 months ago so I wanted to use a recumbent to keep working on flexibility. I’m glad I bought this one, so far it seems like a good product, but have only used it for a week now.
