I makes absolutely no noise at all.
I assembled it and biked for 45 minutes 15 miles 550 calories.
Did thet same today but took me 47.5 minutes

About 24.14 Km Kilometers, something like 32 Km/H. So you will end up being fined Tim. :D

Just a cheap one https://amzn.to/2Yd2T2r
but it's high quality and has all the basic functions that you need to see like time, speed, distance, calories ODO, pulse monitor.
I comes with tools to put it together so you don't need anything.

Tim, you may be onto a really good thing. My wife and I gave my father a stationary bike when he was about 60. He used it almost daily for the next 20 years, passing away at age 80 and becoming the longest-lived man in his family, going back for generations.

Oh dear, neurolurker's comments about age and bikes worries me ... we have two, now unused, such machines going out for council (or anybody else) to pick up. Still, I'll just keep walking instead of pedaling.

Cool for you, enjoy your ride. Stationary bikes surely have developed, still have one older generation model that has a band. It's so hard on the lowest gear feels like steep uphill.
Just saw the other day, while watching Tour De France a stationary bike add. It included some kind of VR landscapes but I didn't pay attention how it worked. And you can probably program custom routes, would be cool to try that kind of bike. Anyone tried?

Having virtual landscape to do biking too would be awesome but i am content with just staionary bike right now because it's cheaper.

Stationary bikes will give you a great workout if you do it right. We have a Schwinn AirDyne Pro. My husband is a long-distance runner, but when the weather is especially bad, or he's short on time, he'll get on the exercise bike instead. We also use exercise bikes (Xebex) at my CrossFit gym for many of our warm-ups and workouts.
