About Recumbent Exercise Bikes
Despite the competition from trendy new fitness inventions, exercise bikes continue to be popular options for home exercise. They offer the same aerobic benefits of riding a bicycle at any time, in any weather, without leaving the comfort and safety of home. Exercise bikes don't take up much space, require little or no balance or coordination, and can provide an effective workout for all levels of users, from beginners to serious competitors. While the same could be said for a number of other types of home fitness equipment, the exercise bike is one of the few that allows you to watch television or read a magazine while you work out.

The term recumbent literally means "lying down." Exercising in a recumbent or reclining position allows the user to have full ergonomic back support, without causing strain on the arms, neck and shoulders, all of which can be common effects of using an upright bicycle. For many people, having convenient access to quality exercise equipment is critical to sticking with a long-term exercise program.

I ordered it from Amazon and was called by the shipper within 3 days. It was delivered right into my living room. The instructions were very easy to follow, once I figured out the numbers on the bags of bolts coresponded to the step numbers in the instructions. However, you absolutley NEED 2 PEOPLE to put it together for the part where you slide the seat on the metal bar. The bar must be placed perfectly, or you'll never get it on. After that, it was a breeze.
I would not reccomend this to anyone else as short as I am. I am 5'2" and I have to put a pillow behind me for the fast pedalling. Also, level one on this is about equal to level 4 or 5 on the fitness center's bike. I am hoping that is because it is new and stiff. I have had it for 2 weeks and it still feels that way. I have to pedal backwards for awhile to get my HR back down (which is like a level 1). Other than that, it is just as high in quality, in my opinion, as the fitness center's bikes. I like the fan in the center with several speeds. The seat is exceptionally comfortable and stays in place very well. It is very sturdy, even on carpet.I can picture this lasting a lifetime.

The Horizon Fitness RC-40 is a winner. It's very well made and easy to assemble. The base is stable and the peddle flywheel provides smooth comfortable bicycle action. Heartbeet sensors are built into the lower handlebars and heartrate is displayed in the large display. The seat is extra padded and comfortable. The various exercise programs make this bike flexible and easy to use. Built in speakers and a jack for your mp3 player allow you to listen to your favorite songs. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

When this product came I had to put it together. My only problem was the small tool that tightens the bolts fell into the open part of the wheel section which I had to open to get out. Once that was done everything else was pretty easy to follow. Great directions enclosed. When I ordered my treadmill the company that delivered it put it together for me but I had to put the bike and the elliptical because a different company delivered them. Took me about 5 hours but I put the two products together myself.
