Enjoy a challenging calorie-burning workout in the comfort of your living room or garage with the ProForm 385 CSX recumbent exercise bike. The 385 CSX offers eight workout programs, letting you vary the speed and resistance depending on your workout goals. The digital magnetic resistance system, meanwhile, invites you to further adjust the workout intensity with the press of a single button. And riders will love the recumbent frame, which is ideal for people who are rehabbing from injuries or who find traditional upright bikes uncomfortable. Other details include an EKG heart rate monitor that provides accurate pulse readings while you exercise, a blue backlit display, an anatomically designed seat that delivers plenty of lower back support, a built-in cooling fan, a target pacer coach, and an iPod-compatible audio port.

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.

Worst investment ever.

The problem is the program that calculates the distance and speed is very generous in how fast you would be traveling and distance that would have covered.

It also did not come with a cord to plug in, you need to use batteries which I guess is fine because in the end you will not use it much anyway.

The bike assembled easily enough. The manual is good. I needed an extra set of hands when mounting the seat. My wife and I have been averaging a total of 15 hours riding a week. Recently, about 3 days before the manufacturer's full 90 day warranty was about to expire, we began sensing a grinding in the pedal assembly. The vibration could be felt with our feet. I had registered my product with the manufacturer so when I called their Customer Service, they had me on record. The person I spoke with was very courteous and here is the outline of things to come. After I described the problem the Rep said they would ship me the parts necessary to perform the repairs. These parts if not under warranty would have exceeded the cost of the machine. I am supposed to be contacted by a local company and when I actually receive the parts, I will schedule with them to come out and install the parts and perform any required service to restore the bike, primarily alignments after parts replacement. All of this is to be at no cost to me. If this all happens as described I would rate the waranty service top notch. Having said that, I'm concerned that the problems arose in less than 90 days of relatively minimal use. I use the program modes and have never been able to get the lights to display that I'm in the proper target range, regardless of my speed, I'm always shown as over speed. The console says I'm at 25 MPH on average. I don't think the sensor or console is properly calibrated and there are no instructions in the user manual to accomplish that, outside of the one sensor alignment. For the price of the unit, up to this recent issue, it has worked well for exercise. After my initial conditioning, I have been using it 7 days a week averaging 1.5 hours per session, by 3 of the 30 minute program modes.Read more ›

I received this bike last month and still haven't gotten it work yet. There was a piece missing that they did send. Then the monitor didn't work. They tried to help to adjust and fix it but still doesn't work. They sent me a piece to fix it but it still isn't working. It's just collecting dust. Worst investment ever. I've called them over 5 times and have had enough. Should have bought at Sears or something so I could have just took it back!

Amazon shipped product very quickly. They are great. However, the bike has mechanical problems upon receipt. I called customer service and help for over 30 minutes, hung up and called back and left number for a return call. ProForm called back about 20 minutes later and indicated they would send out replacement parts. I also purchased power adapter which I feel should have been included. 4 days later and I still don't have the parts. You would think they could have at least shipped them overnight. I own a ProForm treadmill also. It works ok but slips sometimes while you are running. I am rethinking my stand on ProForm. Can't even comment on the bike since we haven't been able to even use it and it was a birthday present.

I guess its true: "you get what you pay for". Took apprx 1 hr to assemble; instructions were easy enough, needed extra hands to assemble seat, other than that, its a one person operation. I tried it out at the store and it felt ok; however they weren't equipped for electrical connection, which is important in choosing a bike with digital/magnetic resistance. Once assembled, a test ride revealed an erratic resistance control. In other words while pedaling, the resistance varies. This is very annoying when trying to do a workout. I tried it again the next day same thing. Thankfully, I saved the box and all packing material; so, I carefully disassembled, repacked, and returned it after 4 days. Went to another store where they had electronic connectivity for their bikes, chose the Schwinn 220 Recumbent ($100) more; but what a difference! Much smoother and much better quality. It doesn't have a fan, nor mp3 connection, but it is a much better machine for serious workouts.

Bought this for my husband. It broke twice in 6 months, cheaper to buy a new one than to fix it. DO NOT BUY.

The bike went together okay, but I could barely turn the pedals and a horrible scraping sound occurred when I did.
We had noticed some shipping damage had occurred, so opened up the housing and found the problems which did not seem related to shipping, but to neglect in original workmanship.
The belt tensioner was out of alignment, tensioning motor cable was misadjusted, magnetic shoe was misaligned and rubbing. (horrible scraping sound)
I wanted to return it, but my bright friend who relishes problem-solving, worked 2 hours to make it serviceable. I sat, recumbent, and pedaled on command for tests. For 2 hours.
We also noticed that the console reads incorrectly. At a leisurely pace, readout says I'm bicycling 26 mph.
On the positive side, I had a fine workout during testing, and the console makes me feel pretty ambitious.

Very difficult to assemble and it only has a 90 day warranty. Starting rattling after 90 days and company won't do anything.

The bike was very easy to assemble and is fairly sturdy/comfortable for this price level. The pre programmed cycles are likely not very challenging for the avid cyclist, but fine for beginners and intermediates. The fan is a nice thought, though not very strong... Also wish they included the necessary wire to plug in my iPod. Beyond that, this was a great purchase for this price point. Smooth ride, lots of extra features.
