The AFG 4.0 AH hybrid exercise bike is ideal for anyone who's looking for the access and support of a recumbent but who also desires the efficient riding position of an upright bike. Taking the best design features of a recumbent and blending it with a traditional upright model, the 4.0 AH incorporates a number of unique features, most notably a step-through design for easy on-and-off access. In addition, a rider's body is positioned at a 45-degree angle, which is ergonomically the most ideal position for people with hip or joint issues. The seat is fully adjustable and includes integrated lumbar support. All AFG exercise bikes are made with substantial commercial-style frames that don't tip or shake like lesser machines.

The 4.0 AH has a heavy-duty, 23-pound flywheel for smooth operation with magnetic brake resistance--the same featured on AFG's commercial units. Riders can stop pedaling at any point during a workout thanks to AFG's FreeSPIN technology--allowing the heavy-duty flywheel to spin independent of the pedals--so you can coast safely after you stop pedaling, eliminating the jarring stops that can place undue stress on your joints. The bike also comes with AFG's unique ProFILE performance tracking feature, which allows riders to monitor important workout statistics over the lifetime of the product--including distance, pace, speed, calories, etc.

This bike includes 20 programmable resistance levels that make it easy to change workout intensity and 10 preset programs. The large 5-screen display of the computer console keeps you informed at all times. You can also incorporate heart rate training with the included wireless Polar receiver and chest strap (as well as the contact heart rate monitor integrated into the handlebar).

Specifications:

  • Resistance levels: 20
  • Flywheel: 23 pounds
  • Console feedback: 10x14 red LED dot-matrix, 5 windows, 16-digit alphanumeric
  • Programs: Manual, Intervals, Weight Loss, Rolling Hills, Constant Watts, THR Zone 1, THR Zone 2, Cadence, Custom 1, Custom 2
  • Heart rate monitoring: Contact and wireless (with included Polar receiver and chest strap)
  • Maximum user weight: 325 pounds

Manufacturer's Warranty

The AFG 4.0 AH Hybrid Exercise Bike is a mix between a comfortable recumbent and a more efficient upright bike. The LED display is bright and features convenient settings such as manual mode, interval, cadence, threshold zone, and custom. Most casual users would just use the manual mode, but having the other settings is useful for more specific training. It rides solid, smooth, and very quiet... no rattling or squeaking. The single cupholder is convenient but i am dissappointed that it does not accommodate larger bottles. Padded saddle seat and backrest make it more comfortable to use than upright stationary bikes.

If you are a relatively short rider like me, a couple things to consider: adjusting the seat to reach the pedals puts the LCD display high enough that it will block your view of a tv that is placed directly in front of the bike. You will either have to position the tv slightly to the side or mount it high on the wall. Also, for the more picky short riders, I measured the crank arm length at 175mm. This means for your leg to be properly extended at the downward stroke, your knees will bend a little too much at the upward stroke. Most riders won't care or even notice this, and it will not be a concern at all if you are average height.

IMHO the "relaxed" position and padded backrest is great if want to literally sit back and watch tv while getting a good cardio workout, but I prefer the intensity I get from an upright bike. It does not have the same feeling as you get on a conventional upright or spinning bike. If you are trying to simulate or train for road racing, I would stick to the uprights or spin bikes.

Despite what a previous review states, the bike is NOT 325 pounds. It is rated for up to 325 lb user, but the bike itself weighs about 130 lbs at most.

Just received this bike today. It's fairly easy to put together. But, when I paddled on the bike, it made sqeaking noise and some banging noises. It sounded like the bike has a bad bearing and uneven flywheel. Also, I noticed some rust dust at the bottom of the bike when I assembled it. This bike does not look brand new. It seems like it has been reconditioned or opened box or returned item. I also bought one for my mom since it's so cheap. Her bike seems to work fine. I will check with her tomorrow. My brother also bought one too. His is perfectly fine! It is so quiet and nice. I will contact Amazon tomorrow. I am not sure how Amazon is going to handle this! I just want to exchange, but this item is no longer available.

==UPDATE 1:
Just got off the phone with Amazon. Very nice customer service. They would take it back if I would like. They will send people out to box it and ship it back. I don't have to carry this heavy equipment to UPS. They can not exchange the bike now because it's out of stock. But, they put a note in my account so that if the bike becomes available, I can buy it at this price or current price whichever lower.
In the mean time, I can call AFG customer service to see if they can fix it. I still have 30 days to return this bike if I am not happy!
==UPDATE 2:
I am calling AFG at 1-877-462-3455. All I got was "I am sorry for the delay..." I have been on hold forever...then, the VRU told me to leave a message because no one is avail to take my call. I hung up and tried again and again. I called 4 times, I still cannot talk to a human being.
===Update 3:
I called and left message at AFG. They called me back within 1 hour. It's very good response time. They sent me some parts. There is a local service provider.

When looking for an exercise bike, we looked at traditional bikes and the recumbent bikes. Neither one felt right. I have some lower back problems but still wanted to keep up with riding. This hybrid is the perfect match. You are at the best position to feel like you are riding but with little to no back stress.
The display is perfect with large enough readings to see even after 30 mins of hard riding. The 2 participant system will remember who you are and keep your stats. The only problem that we have had is if you turn the power off, it will not remember the date and time and have to be reset if you want the data stored to be accurate and understandable later.

If ever something looks too good to be true, it probably is just that. I ordered by bike a few weeks ago and received a call asking to schedule delivery. The company, ABF, was unknown to me, but I figured they may specialize in bulky exercise equipment so I didn't think much of it.

Update: As it stands, I wouldn't even give this bike 1 star. I month has passed since purchase. I have yet to ride this bike once. A technician finally came out to service the bike. After taking the bike apart to replace a few parts, he noticed that the flywheel was out of alignment and another piece connected to the frame was bent. The bike I received is a piece of junk and will need to be completely replaced. I fault Amazon.com, though, not the company that made the bike. Why? Clearly others have been happy with their purchase, so the bike works for some. In my case, however, Amazon made NO mention that my bike had been previously delivered to someone else and sent back... a shifty, terrible business practice, if you ask me. I even have the documents from that previous customer requesting the bike's return. Unfortunately, I had discovered them deep in the packaging AFTER I had already opened and assembled the bike.

The company, AFG, is likely to honor their lifetime warranty on the frame and the technician and I have documented the damage. He will try to work on my behalf to have the entire bike replaced. Kudos to him. Yet, it has still been over a month and a total waste of $500. That's $500 I never would have spent had I seen any indication on this product's page that the merchandise was damaged, pre-owned or otherwise refurbished.

Update #2: So now AFG has authorized the RMA, but Amazon orders must be handled by Amazon, not AFG.
