This bike was a birthday gift for my husband. I've never bought any fitness equipment before but our GP suggested some cardio activity in our daily routine. The bike is very quiet and has a good range of pre-set programmes, we mainly use the HR control workouts, as we have some cardiovascular problems. The seat is very comfortable and easy to adjust, also the console is clear and easy to read. The installation process was very easy as everything is written clearly in the manual. So far, we didn't experience any technical problems with this bike. Although the price is quite high, this bike is definitely worth it.
