Where to start...I'm 6'5" was 275 lbs and purchased a 726 King from Rowbike. Assembling the bike was no problem but I can follow instructions and mechanically minded. A cable adjuster was missing so I robbed one from an old motorcycle in the garage. Took about 20 minutes to feel comfortable riding it. The best advice is to be aware of how you move the handle bars...since you pull and steer with the handle bar, you must use equal pressure pulling back. Pull harder on one side and that's the direction your going. The website video's do a good job with learning to ride this machine.

This is a "workout" machine it will get you in shape and although I did not loose much weight, my waist got smaller. I would regularly ride 10 miles on a daily basis and averaged 10 mph. What's interesting about a Rowbike as oppose to a rowing machine, is feeling your muscles engage as you maintain balance. The outdoor aspect is a great plus for your workout. Overall quality of the structure is very good and explains the lifetime warranty for the Frame, Power Lever, and Fork. Where this machine falls short is the components i.e. rear gears, wheels, drive train, shifter, steering cabling.

The BAD. My machine came with a friction shifter the current machine comes with a Micro Shifter. For the uninitiated this sounds impressive but in reality its not. The gear set is lowest cost units available and can be found on the cheapest Chinese made bikes. Also my bike mechanic questioned the use of a derailleur (the device used to shift gears) because every power stroke pulls the derailleur forward, accelerating the wear on the spring. In addition the bearings used to support and slide the seat are made of plastic (required to reduce friction) and crack. Be prepared to purchase spares.

I've owned a Rowbike 720 sport for over a year now and it is amazing. Normally riding a regular bike is easy and getting along the local paths I got far enough just fine riding all day, then I got the Rowbike And felt weak! I couldn't go around the block of my home without having to stop and catch my breath. I was using areas of my body normally not exercised on a bike and had no strength to drive me around.

After a couple months on this Rowbike my stamina has soared and I'm going 8 mile round trips 3 times a week. Scotty the inventor and seller of Rowbike even surprised me himself calling me personally to check out how I was getting along and offering advice and talking of new accessories and such. How is that for customer service?!

With summer high temps I got myself an indoor trainer with 20" wheel adapter to keep my work outs going, but when weather is good I'm out and rowling along.

I get a lot of attention, a lot of it positive, people asking where I got it and how much. The Spandex gangs(road bikers) are always in their own worlds and just rush by sometimes glancing over.

As for the bike itself and construction its pretty decent, pretty bulky, big heavy welds, thick frame. I'm not sure how the new models look, but last I saw they did change some on their new website and prices went up, But then they went back to the old website format and old photos, no idea what happened there, but I hope things are well as these bikes are great. Most think it looks silly or laugh at it without giving a thought about it or just don't see the whole point of this machine.

I love riding this more than my regular bike, I feel better after riding this bike, I'm looking better as I loose weight and ride this bike. So its great to me. If I could get another I'd grab the 726-King.

Call the Rowbike shop and see if it's right for you.

I got my Rowbike about a month ago. It took me a little while to get used to the balance and steering, and now I'm commuting on it, 8 miles round trip each day. After commuting on my regular bike, I'm in good shape from the waist down, but pretty weak and flabby above. I expect that my upper body fitness will improve steadily from this twice-daily workout. So far, I'm very happy that I bought my Rowbike.

Here's an update two years later (October, 2010): The Rowbike is the best purchase I've ever made. I'm still commuting on it, and I have real upper-body strength for the first time in my life. Also, I was starting to get middle-age back pain, and that's completely gone - my back is a hell of a lot stronger than it's ever been. In the process, I've lost 25 pounds. I still have about 10 pounds to go. Once in a while, I go back to my pedal-bike when my Rowbike needs a repair - it's just too boring and too easy. The Rowbike is much more of a workout.

Is it perfect? No. It's heavy, it's slow, it's hard to go uphill, and it's not as nimble as a conventional bike in traffic. It's sturdy, but since there's only one manufacturer, the design has not really matured. It can be a pain to work on, when it's time to do stuff like replacing the chain.

I just wish I'd bought it ten years earlier.

I used the Rowbike in a race in France. In all, it held up rather well and I came in 21 out of 837 participant racers. If more serious about Rowbikes, you might want to get something more expensive but this is good for weekend rides.
