Top Customer Reviews
I began riding this bike in January, and through semi-regular use, I put 315 miles on it by mid-March. Life got in the way, and I didn't ride again until June 2nd. From that date through early-August, I put an additional 770 miles on. To work toward my fitness and weight loss goals, I adhered to the following 35 minute regimen, six days per week:
I would warm up for five minutes at the easiest resistance on the dial (1 out of 8), followed by medium to high intensity intervals of Resistance 3, 5, 3, 5, 3, 5 for five minutes each. I went hard, got a GREAT workout, and lost 30 pounds in the process. So why am giving a 3 Star Review for such outstanding results? Here's what went wrong:
At 625 miles, the rubber pedal strap (the piece that holds your foot in place) snapped. It's a cheap part, and though I was out of the manufacturer's warranty, I called Exerpeutic [at (844) 641-7921], and their rep was kind enough to send me a new pair of straps free of charge. Shipping took less than a week and the straps arrived in perfect condition.
Around 1,050 miles, the flywheel began to make kind of a whirring and clicking noise at any resistance at or above 5. The flywheel is visible through the top of the compartment it's housed in, and I could see that it began to wobble in there. Previously, I loved that the ride was smooth and whisper quiet.
At 1,075 miles, the pedal strap mount (the piece that holds the strap to the pedal) broke off, and took a chunk of the cheap plastic pedal with it (pictured in my attached image). After that, I used an elaborate contraption made of multiple strips of duct tape to hold my foot on the pedal.
When I bought this bike, I also purchased an exended warranty from SquareTrade, and I'm glad I did! I called them to see what could be done about the flywheel and broken pedal, and the rep that I worked with deemed that the cost of shipping the bike and its repair was prohibitive... and he agreed to refund me the entire value of the product! (You can read my 5 Star review “A+ Customer Service, Very Good Experience, with a Little Bit of a Wait” of that experience here). I asked him what I needed to do with the bike, and he quipped "What everyone else does... use it to hang your laundry!"
To sum up, here are my Pros and Cons of this Exerpeutic Upright Bike:
• Basic console, the original AAA batteries still haven’t worn out
• Sturdy, shake-free ride, even at high speeds/intensity
• Ergonomically sound and comfortable
• Folds-up to save space
• Smooth and quiet
• Simple assembly
• Mileage on the console resets to 0.0 after 999.9 miles, I would have liked five digits
• HUGE proprietary seat, which can’t be swapped out for a standard seat or saddle
• Not durable for more than light to medium intensity rides, a few times per week
• The 9/16ths pedals are cheap pre-molded plastic
• Cheap rubber pedal straps
This is a great bike for those who are just looking to get into stationary cycling, or maintain their current weight. If you’re looking for a piece of equipment that’ll take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’, I’d say you’re better off looking at higher quality (and yes, higher priced) options.
Feel free to leave me a comment or question, I’m happy to add anything else you’d like to know about the product. Thanks for taking the time to read my review, hopefully this information was useful!
Hope this revew helps anyone in the market looking for a great product at a great price!
Regarding build quality---the bike is made of excellent materials for the most part, and is a solid piece of machinery. The bike is very sturdy and stable when you're cycling. I had never owned a magnetic resistance bike before, so I was a little nervous about the concept. But I am very impressed with the quiet, smooth pedaling action of the bike at all levels of resistance. I am in average physical condition, and the bike provides more than enough resistance at level 4 to 6 (out of 8) to give me a good workout.
The main problem with the bike is the bio-mechanics, i.e. the way your body interacts with the bike. Here are some of the reasons:
1) It is not truly an upright bike (such as a regular road bike). The pedals are too far forward. The bike is a cross between an upright and recumbent bike, however there is no seatback to lean back against. The pedals are so far forward, you are pushing them away from your body to some extent. This may put more stress on your unsupported back. Also, because of the forward pedal position, it is very difficult to get full range of motion (ROM) without being uncomfortable, especially with the extra wide seat. Full ROM is when your legs are almost straight at the bottom of the pedal stroke, but not locked. Full ROM makes any exercise more effective. However people with injuries or joint problems should generally limit their ROM--so this may not be an issue for those people.
2) The seat may be too wide for some individuals, since your legs may not entirely clear the seat on the down stroke and your thighs may rub against the seat. That's one of the main reasons road bikes have narrow seats. I have to sit forward on the seat to be comfortable.
3) The seat gets hard for me after riding for about 30 minutes. The design of this seat is very different than that of a typical road bike seat. The seat is pretty low tech. It's made of a triangular plywood base covered with foam. The foam feels like upholstery grade foam. The plywood base is bolted directly to the seat post, with no shock absorption system. Also the seat is perfectly flat and not contoured to fit your bottom. When I ride the bike for more than 30 minutes (sometimes less) I can feel my "sit bones" sinking into the foam, and my center bottoming out. I'm not saying that will happen to you. It depends on your anatomy and other factors. The rub (pun intended) is that higher tech bike seats are made of firmer materials, including denser rubberized foam that supports your weight better and collapses less. A cushy seat is not necessarily better when it comes to a bike seat.
The bike has some very positive features (including the low price) and seems to work well for a lot of people. I just wanted to point out that there are also some issues to consider. Whether or not these issues affect you depends a lot on your anatomy and how you use the bike.
