This is such a great idea for fitting exercise into a busy schedule. I am currently in my last year of graduate school, in a program that is strictly online. Before I found this product I spent a good chunk of time sedentary, and gained more than a few pounds. But with regular use, I lost about 10 lbs in the first month, a total 30 lbs so far, and managed to maintain my weight over 6 months.

FitDesk is a small company that actually listens to its consumers. I have had to opportunity to use both the original (2010) and new (2011) models of this product and am truly pleased with the updates and improvements made on this fundamentally great idea. The company is quick to respond to questions and suggestions (always within 24 hrs) and seems genuine in wanting to produce a reputable product that meets the expectations of the consumer. This type of customer service is much appreciated and makes this company stand out from its competition.

The design of the bike is simple, yet effective. The bike mechanism is sturdy and quiet. It is quieter than any stationary bike, or other stationary fitness machine I have used at home or at the gym (e.g. treadmill, stair climber, or elliptical machine). One can easily work out in the same room as a sleeping spouse.

The new 2011 model has made quite a few improvements on the original design. The most noticeable (an appreciated) being the seat. For anyone not used to spending any length of time on a bike seat, doing so can be quite uncomfortable. But the new model comes with a cushioned, wider seat. Like any bike seat, it will take some conditioning to get used to the feel, but anyone who has used the 2010 model will immediately notice this improvement.

I am surprised at the number of 4- and 5-star reviews this product has gotten. I am really being generous in giving it 3-stars as it has some major limitations. As an exercise bike, it is pretty poor. The resistance mechanism is not fluid, by that I mean that the resistance varies somewhat depending on the position of the pedals. This makes it very difficult to get a consistent pedaling rhythym, and also makes it hard to get a solid workout. For people looking for a minimal physical output -- ie just a little more than sitting still -- it is fine. For any kind of serious exercise though it is not ideal. I should mention that I am an avid mountain bike rider and I also ride exercise bikes at the Y regularly.

Another issue is that the bike is very small. I am only 6' 0" and the seat is not able to adjust high enough for me. I think this is by design as the bike is pretty unstable, at higher extensions it may be too wobbly. In any case though it is impossible for me to ride it with proper leg extension.

Finally, the computer is junk. It looks like they bought some surplus Sony DiscMan CD player cases and stuck the LCD display for the bike inside. It is huge, about ten times larger than it needs to be. Mine was dead on arrival anyway, so I did not worry too much about the size. If I was this company I would simply leave the computer out as it is insultingly poor quality even at this rather low price point.

In summary, if you are looking for a very light workout while working on your laptop, and you are fairly short, this may be a good match for you. If you want a real workout though, you may need to pay more money.

EDIT -- Wow, so many comments.

I never ever do video - in fact this may be the first one I've ever done willingly. But, I didn't feel that I could do my review justice without showing exactly how happy I am with the FitDesk. I wanted to showcase the stability of the bike as well as the amount of workout you really can get while getting real work done (hence the heavy breathing in the video!) Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. If you are on the fence, I hope this, among the other reviews, will convince you to take the leap - I promise you won't regret it.

I have had two different models of the fitdesk and love them both. Here's a few things to know about the fitdesk in general:

- The customer service is fantastic. I've emailed with them a couple times and always had a lightning fast response - it's a small company and they seem to really, really care.

- It's basically a compact stationary bike with a platform for your laptop. The pictures make it look a little silly but in real life it looks like regular exercise equipment plus the platform. People may still make fun of you for "internet biking", but whatevs.

- For me, I can do about 5 miles on the fitdesk in around 20-25 minutes. I try to do 5 miles a day. It's very easy. Time flies for me when I'm on the internet, especially when I put on some good workout music.

- Computer-wise, it's perfect for what I consider light computer tasks. Data entry, writing emails, browsing, etc. I have found that I don't want to type long documents while I'm on it and tend to stop pedaling if I really need to focus. So I wouldn't consider it a replacement for your chair at work, for example. There is a backrest you can buy on the fitdesk website if you want to pause and lean back a lot, though, or have a different stance, so maybe if I used that more I wouldn't pause so much (I just got one). I think it's a nice inexpensive addition and doesn't really change the size of the fitdesk since it folds down. It also could help with the few complaints about people's back hurting from leaning forward on their computers so much.

- If I get at least 25 minutes of exercise a day my body is happy and I feel great. I do that on here easily.
