This is a pretty solid bike for the price. At 6' 00" with 32.5" inseam, this bike is the right size. However, if you are shorter than 5' 11", you may want to consider the medium size (even though Diamondback size chart says 5' 10" is ok) as this bike runs a bit large. It DOES NOT include the assembly tools (confirmed!!). Assembly was pretty easy, but you can't go by the absolutely useless instruction book (look to their website for guidance instead). Most of the bike was already assembled. After 1 hour basic assembly, I had brake noise on rear brake/rotor and noise from chain rubbing against the front derailleur. Knowing absolutely nothing about bikes, it took several youtube videos and another 3 hour to fine tune it. This included adjusting rear brake pad position, rear brake cable tension, and bending the rear rotor just a bit. On the front derailleur, I adjusted tension as well as the high and low limit on front derailleur. They seemed pretty difficult at first, but once you get through it, it will be much easier if you need to do it again. I then made sure that everything was tight and secure, in case someone at the factory was incompetent. Now it shifts very quickly, smoothly and quietly. The brakes stop effectively with no noise at all.
I am giving this seat a 2 and not a 5 because of the utter stupidity of the company of putting two gigantic warning patches on each side of where the baby's head is. So, instead of the soft grey fabric you see in the photo, you have two large (about 6 in by 3 in) ugly uncomfortable (I imagine) patches next to each of the baby's cheeks. Seriously, of all the places where Baby Jogger could have put these patches, why did they choose there? Plus, forget about taking any cute pics of your baby in the car seat... Frustrated as I have just spent the last 90 mins removing just one patch stitch by stitch as it is very securely sewed in. And the fabric is now full of the marks from the seams so now it just looks damaged. :(
Not worth the money. If you want to spend that much money on a hidden camera get something that you can at least half way aim the camera at what you're taking a pic of. It simply doesn't meet the criteria, or do the things it claims to do...
I love this. I previously had a UP24 and I like this so much better. You don't have to take it off to shower or swim, and you don't have to tell it when you are going to sleep. It's much lighter than I expected. I wear it on my ankle because I discovered that my arms were more active than the rest of my body and didn't really give an accurate reading of my activity. The walking and running programs are awesome. I tend to slow down and this reminds you to keep your pace up. I haven't tried the biking mode yet, but I can't wait to.
Haven't been able to spend the amount of time to utilize this program effectively. Takes more time than I expected. I have picked up graphics/photo and music manipulation programs quickly but, this seems to take more effort.
Great sound quality and responsiveness; connects quickly and lasts a long time. Only negative is the soft flexible ear wraps; just wish they were similar to the beats ear wraps, a little more firm, but still flexible.
