Delivery: My bike arrived in 6 days which was well within what was promised
Condition: The box had experienced a few bangs, styroam was somewhat broken up, but overall everything was in good condition and nothing was missing
Instructions: Pretty tough to follow. Poor English. Some parts erroneously referred to. Take your time and realize what you are trying to accomplish. The picture on the box is a big help. It took me about 2 hrs going at a very slow pace.
Result: My bike was extremely hard to pedal. At the gym I use a setting of 3 or 4 just for a warm up. This bike was much harder to pedal at a setting of 1. The pedaling was also very uneven as mentioned in other reviews.
My Assessment: Some people may exaggerate there fondness of the bike, but there are so many glowing reports that logically you have to assume that many people are indeed legitimately happy with the product. How then can so many other people, me included, have something that is so difficult and inconsistent to pedal. The answer is in the Tension Control.
Customer Service; I called and got through within a minute or two. The girl I spoke with was very polite, but didn’t seem to understand my problem. Eventually she agreed to send a video showing how to adjust the tension control. It didn’t arrive. That was Friday six days ago. I just called and she promised to immediately send it out. No adjustment for the tension control was received.
How to adjust Tension Control: (My unofficial approach)
1. Remove the screw that holds the tension control in place. Ensure that the cable is not hung up on anything. If it moves freely. Re-install and try again.
2. I felt strongly something had to be wrong and that the problem might be elsewhere so I went a step further at disassembly.
a. I first removed both pedals then
b. about 9 screws that hold the two covers together
c. I also removed the tension control by its one screw and washer
d. The whole bike was then wide open for investigation. I made sure everything was in place and working properly. To remove the two covers may require removal of the cap nuts on the front stabilizer.
e. There is a plastic piece with a groove that is intended to hold the cable in place keeping it from snapping into the cover. Mine had come free. I snapped it back in place.
f. I then adjusted the tension control by loosening the nut which hold the cable into the bracket. I then turned the bracket several turns such that the amount of thread closest to the tension control was reduced.
g. I then turned the pedals by hand to see if they would turn easier. Surprise surprise. They did. I’m not sure if my adjustment fixed the problem, or snapping the cable back in place fixed the problem, or just taking the whole thing apart and freeing up the cable was the cure.
Result: My bike is now working properly. It pedals very easily and now has smooth pedaling.
Two videos were received from customer service
Video to Install Tension control knob:
Speed Sensor Adjustment:
Neither of these addressed my situation, but the first one is of value. .
A. If you have not yet assembled: Before attempting to assemble the bike watch the video on How to assemble the tension control.
B. If you have assembled and the tension control seems way too tight: Watch the install video and ensure that your assembly is in accordance with the video. Dissassembly to check this out requires removing only 1 screw and
C. If step B doesn’t work then more disassembly may be required. See step 2 above.
Overall: Since I was able to fix its biggest problem, I now believe the bike is an excellent buy for the money.
My rating is 4 based on the somewhat tedious process of adjusting the seat, and for directions I consider less than acceptable. If the video referenced above were recommended in the instructions then I would've rated it 5.
Hope this saves others some of the aggravation I experienced
The build was good, no missing or broken parts, no scratched metal. 5 stars for that.
It's very quiet, and the tension settings are easily adjustable. The seat is fairly comfortable, and as long as you have the adjusters tightened correctly it makes no noise as you ride. If they are not very tight, there will be some wobble during the ride. Do I wish for more support or cushioning in the seat? Absolutely. Is it unbearably uncomfortable? Not at all.
The display is fairly simple; it displays the current distance, the time spent, your current heart rate, your mph, and how many calories you've burned for the workout. It also keeps a running count of your overall distance. It doesn't have any fancy programs or anything, it just comes on when you start pedaling. I like that because it's more like a real bike -- just get on and ride!
Also, less gizmos, the less things to go wrong with it. Do you need a bike with a USB charger, a cup holder, a tablet holder or a pretty display to look at if you are using it in your home, where there is probably an outlet and a TV nearby to keep you busy while pedalling? That's the real differences between a $750 bike and this one.
The Cons: When compared to a more expensive bike used at say, a PT facility, the seat is not as comfortable, and the pedaling mechanism isn't as smooth. But it's not a $750 bike either, so I guess you can't expect Mercedes seating at a Ford price.
Long story short, I've had an excellent time with this bike so far, and would highly recommend it to anyone who's looking for a relatively inexpensive bike and trying to get into a healthy workout routine. The negatives are too minor at this price point to discourage anyone from buying it.

Dann der erste Test – und nach wenigen Sekunden die große Ernüchterung. Vom Einbau der Zugeinstellung war diese noch im "schwersten" Modus (Stufe 8) und es war trotz der für diese Stufe sehr moderaten Belastung nicht im Ansatz ein rundes Treten möglich. Stattdessen variierte der Widerstand innerhalb jeder Pedalumdrehung deutlich (hat mich entfernt an einen "Stepper" erinnert, sieht man auf dem Video allerdings kaum), die Tretbewegung wird dadurch komplett "abgehackt". Das ganze Gerät bewegte sich dabei trotz 56 kg Abstand zum maximal zulässigen Nutzergewicht bei jedem Tritt deutlich auf und ab (siehe Video). Die Phänomene ließen sich in niedrigeren Belastungs-Stufen etwas verringern, verschwanden aber erst in der Stufe 1 – ohne Belastung.
Ich habe viele Jahre ein Liege-Ergometer genutzt, das wesentlich günstiger war als das Gerät von Exerpeutic, d. h. ich nutze keine Studio-Geräte und habe auch keine Studio-Qualität erwartet. Ich wollte das Ergometer im moderaten Belastungsbereich nutzen, beim Exerpeutic 900XL wäre für mich (Hobby-Mountainbiker) allerdings erst die höchste Stufe (8) für das Training OK gewesen – aber natürlich nur mit der Möglichkeit gleichmäßig zu Pedalieren. Warnung: Wer hier ein bisschen sportlicher rangeht, wird wahrscheinlich enttäuscht sein. Ich kann mir das Gerät eher zur Mobilisierung der Knie- und Hüftgelenke im Rahmen einer Reha-Maßnahme vorstellen – Cardio verstehe ich anders. Das Werbeversprechen "Das Recumbent Bike bietet ein anspruchsvolles Herz-Kreislauf-Training" ist aus meiner Sicht für Sportler irreführend. Insgesamt weicht das Gerät m. E. deutlich von den Werbeversprechen in der Artikelbeschreibung ab ("präzise ausgewogenes Schwungrad").
Beim Kauf muss man außerdem bedenken, dass das Gerät mit Verpackung knapp 34 kg wiegt. Ich habe für die Rücksendung zunächst lediglich einen Aufkleber mit dem Hinweis "ausreichend frankieren" erhalten. Mit dem Gewicht liegt das Gerät jedoch über der Höchstgrenze von 31,5 kg aller mir bekannten Paketversender (DHL, Hermes, DPD etc). Ich hatte Glück – das Paket wurde bei Rücksendung nicht nachgewogen und niemandem ist der Hinweis auf der Paketseite zum Gewicht aufgefallen. Regulär lässt es sich wohl nur mit einer Spedition zurücksenden.
Bike was bought for me to rehab my knee and my wife to just enjoy. I am 5'11", she is 5' 3" and adjusting the chair takes about 3 seconds.
June 7 2019 - 18 months or so update. The bike is still working perfectly, had to tighten the nuts once so far and it is still virtually noiseless (any squeaks, creaks or groans come from me). I am down to a steady 215, have dropped 4 pant sizes and don't have Dunlop's disease any more (my belly done lopped over my belt). Excellent leg strength now. Still love it.
Computer gives the standard readout; pulse, distance, time, calories and odometer. Worked well for me, no issues.
Whisper quiet, easy to move with rollers on the front stabilizer.
I will be on this 3 times a day for 6 weeks so I'll try and give an update on wear and tear.
Update: Well have just passed the 100 mile mark on the bike. I have used it 5 to 6 days a week 3 times a day and my wife has used it a bit as well. Everything is still working perfectly, the machine is whisper quiet and, though I check the nuts and bolts every day, nothing has needed maintenance. Seat adjustment is still a breeze.
There is only one con. The tension control has very little range. Setting if from minimum to maximum has almost no effect. So I have upped my time on the bike from 10 to 15 minutes per ride and it seems to serve the purpose.
I still love it.
All in all this is a great bike for the money. I would have wanted a small stand for say an ipad but I wasn't willing to pay 500 for a machine that has a deck when I can just buy one that attaches to the handle bars or put my ipad on a box nearby or small table. Very happy with the price and very happy with the bike.
Reviewed in Canada on September 29, 2016
Quiet (but see problem 1. below), comfortable, I like the recumbant design, the tension knob that controls how hard it is to turn the pedals goes high enough to get me out of breath and low enough to give my knees a warmup.
1. The plastic casing around the mechanism amplifies any slight wobble to make annoying clunking noises in time with your pedalling. I ended up removing the plastic, which seems to have cured that. That might cause problems with dust etc. getting in -- I remedied that as best I can by covering the mechanism with a bin bag every time after using it.
2. The calorie counter is nonsense: you see the same number of calories go past per rotation of the pedals regardless of what the tension setting is. So you can do wildly different amount of work and you'll see the same calorie readout. I guess at least it's clearly nonsense. Happily, I didn't need a calorie count in the first place, and the distance meter works fine (arbitrary units of course -- it's just measuring pedal turns).
3. Putting it together took many hours. Mostly easy, just time consuming, the one exception being the step where you shove the tension mechanism into the front post, which was a bit tricky and worrying (it's a tight fit, and could be easy to let the cable slip off the mechanism, which might not be recoverable -- then you'd have a very painful returns process I'm sure)
4. I really wish they'd gone for allen keys under the seat rather than philips head screws, I've already needed to tighten them once and the heads are going to strip eventually.
