Putting the bike together was not that difficult, but I did it by myself, so it took about an hour and a half. I was flying through assembly until it came time to connect the electronics on the front of the bike that connect to the console. The electronic male to female connection did not want to go, and the last thing I wanted to do was force it in and break it, especially since it was near the end of assembly. I finally just risked it all and forced the pieces together, and it works. Also, this is the only bike I have seen where the fly wheel assembly comes exposed at the top, and you cannnot cover it until you make this console connection. This proved frustrating as I dropped my allen wrench into the open flywheel, and the screw, washer, and nut followed. I had to get my 11 year old to stick his skinny hand inside to fetch them. Not the end of the world, but frustrating nonetheless. As I mentioned, with this bike being so light, it can be assembled with one person.
This morning was my first ride. I was hesitant to do a review after only one use, but I hope you will find this valuable. I have ridden a recumbent bike for about 15 years, so I have a solid understanding of what to expect and what I want. I do not use the myriad of courses that are provided. I prefer to set the tension myself and control it throughout the ride. This proved to be interesting. My Epic goes to a tension of 22, and I would ride it for 45 minutes at a tension of 13-14, and that was a challenging, near peak level at about 50-60 revolutions a minute. With the Nautilus, I rode it this morning on a tension of 22, which I find confusing because it says there are only 20 levels of tension in the instructions. In any event, I am already at the max on tension, which concerns me greatly. The 22 tension was challenging, but I will eventually need to increase that, and I have no room for growth.
I have saved the WORST for last. The seat on this bike was devised by some type of sadistic torture expert who definitely does not ride a bike with this plastic jabbing him or her in the back. The plastic back is the worst designed piece of equipment ever conceived. It feels like someone is hitting the bones on your lower back that protrude slightly, over and over, and then grading the skin from your back. After my ride, my wife was startled when she saw the two raw patches on my back where the seat wore off the skin. It is absurd that a $320 bike has plastic seats. The bottom seat being plastic means that you slide constantly as you are pedaling and have to adjust your rear end backwards on the seat. Pair that with the pain of the plastic back, and this bike should really be a 2 star rating, but I'm trying to take everything into consideration.
I doubt I will keep this bike. I was excited to get it and try it out, but the lack of tension and the torturous seats are hard to overcome.
This is HUGE: The bike is virtually silent, so whether you’re watching TV or listening to music thru the speakers, there is really no noise/squeaking etc to distract you. This is a giant advantage, as it’ll allow you to either focus on your workout, or listen to music/tv without getting distracted by annoying noises, rattling, etc.
I found that being in a somewhat reclining position to be more comfortable than sitting upright, and that would make me more likely to stick to a pedaling regimen. The ability to adjust the resistance on the pedaling is very useful, if you wish to increase the intensity of your workout. There’s also a heart-rate simulator, which will give you an idea of how much your workout is getting your heart-rate up (it’s a function of your speed, plus uses the weight/height setup you will enter in when you set your user-profile up on the bike’s data panel, which will also impute how many calories you have burned).
The bike assembled pretty much straightforward/easily in about an hour (the only issue I had was the front assembly, which can get tricky so make sure you have a good grip on the allen wrench or you’ll drop it into the wheel compartment and need to use a magnetic stick to retrieve it, as I did).
The fan and speakers in the data panel are nice touches, though the fan could be more powerful, and you may have to crank up your iPod (though the speakers did work fine at higher volume), as is the water bottle holder on the rear left.
Nice ‘workout data’ collection on the control/data panel, so you can measure progress and get some feedback on your workout. I didn’t do the website setup for workout data transfer yet (which creates a trend of your workouts to chart your progress). But if you just want to pedal without workout tracking, you can also do that too. The workout=tracking website (Nautilusconnect.com) is free – you just have to set up a profile; the data is captured and migrated using a thumb-drive, using the USB port on the top of the bike’s data panel – it’s right next to the patch cable jack for your iPod/MP3 player.
The side handles are pretty thick (and I have large hands) and it’s hard to get a very good grip on them, particularly if you have smaller hands. I wish they weren’t quite so large.
I’m 6’1” and I have to put the seat as far back as it goes, to get comfortable, so taller people may have issues with their legs coming up while pedaling.
You may want to get a cushion or similar for the seat – it’s rigid plastic so it’s not 100% comfortable but it’s nothing a cushion wouldn’t solve.
The pedals are good, but if your foot is large (I have size 11’s), the rubber pedal strap may not fit over your shoes easily.
