An early review as it has only been in use for a few days. So take this as first impressions. It arrived very quickly, was packaged supremely well. Assembly was fine. Yes it takes some time, but if you are methodical and careful it is straightforward. All the parts seem to be of good quality materials and well constructed. In use the action is smooth and refined. The pedal and arm actions are both synchronised well and comfortable to use together or separately. We chose this over an entry-level Schwinn based on the comfort of the seat. The seat is large, well padded and comfortable. The only tiny issue my wife has with it is that she describes herself as sliding forward on the seat and has to shuffle back on. It does not slope downwards so it is hard to figure why this happens. Overall, this seems like a solid, reliable and well made bike and we made the right choice.
