The shipping cost depends on where you are buying from but it is usually free if you are to buy from Amazon.
As for assembling, you won’t find it difficult to do because some of the parts are preassembled all you will require doing is to fix the console, handlebars, seats, pedals and of course some minor components. The assembling will be accelerated by the easy to follow manual that will walk you through it all and in an hour or so you will be done.
We find not to like only one thing that is the excluded chest strap for heart rate monitor. It could have been great if it was included; however, it is telemetry enabled which means you can purchase the heart rate chest strap separately and use.
Many users have found the Nautilus U616 Upright Bike very impressive including us, and the rating is amazing. Just like the manufacturer asserted, that it was designed with the user in mind. It is nearly perfect and if you are interested in getting one for your home gym feel free and smart to go to Amazon.
