My boyfriend purchased one a few months ago. he uses it several times a week. Although it was rated highly in Consumer Reports, I would save your money. Thirty days was not near long enough to see the machines true colors. A bolt in the pedal is now continually falling off and my boyfriend hurt himself the first time this happened. We took great care in assembling it and cannot understand why this happened. In general, the machine feels unsteady when you ride on it. It sways from side to side. The motion of the pedals is awkard too. They do not rotate in a flat position - it is almost like you are pedaling downhill - and it is difficult to maintain you balance. We are in the process of trying to contact the manufacturer to return it for good - it is definitely not worth the $200!
