We bought an exercise cycle back on mother's day - the good part was, there was no shipping cost, no sales tax, and a 10 percent discount - we got the thing for almost $300 less than it would have cost at a local sporting goods store. The bad news? I got the box delivered to my foyer, and had to get it up the stairs:
That box, with the bike in it, was about 150 pounds. No one else was home, and my wife can't really help anyway, what with her knee problems - the recumbent bike is largely to help her exercise when going to the gym to swim isn't possible (t-storms, other bad weather). So I turned around, put my back into it, and shoved it up. Fortunately, it didn't fall on me :)
The good news is, assembly was easy - they even included all the tools I needed. It went together quickly, and a quick test shows that it works fine:
I think I'll try it out this afternoon.
