I got one of these when they were offered a couple weeks ago. Assembly was not complicated and I only engaged my husband for help on a couple of things that required extra muscle. One of the bars on the seat back was bent, which he fixed with a whack of a hammer, and it was hard for me to tighten the seat frame so it didn’t wobble. It’s a low end machine, so don’t expect frills or sleek appearance. All of the nuts and bolts you install are shiny silver toned metal against a much darker frame. It works, though. I am actively trying to become less fat and this lets me get more activity on work from home days and poor weather days. It is quiet and I can read a few chapters or play on my phone while I ride. It comes with a quick guide to some before and after stretches, which I liked because I am fairly fitness ignorant.
