I am impressed with the Exerpeutic GOLD 525 XLR high quality constructed steel frame that can easily hold up to 400 pounds. The seat cushion is very comfortable for longer exercise periods and I like the computer read functions that include: calories burned, time, speed, scan, pulse and odometer. Although the GOLD 525 XLR is designed for limited spaces, it weighs over 50 pounds and can be a little challenging to maneuver. The assembly is fairly easy except for the pedals and tension control. The treads on the pedals are difficult to line up and screw into the crank. You have to be careful not to strip them. The tension cable is very tricky to connect, and the instructions are vague. And if not properly connected, the tension level will be out of sync with intended tension settings on the handlebar dial. I would recommend buying the GOLD 525 XLR only if you elect to have the expert assembly. This will ensure that the bike is properly assembled and the tension levels are correctly set.
