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.
Second the product when finally in use: An exercycle is a near-perfect exercise machine. It is fully scalable as to how much effort one expends, from barely moving to Tour de France uphill sprinting. One is putting the minimum possible force on ones joints. It is exercise done seated, sparing hips, knees, ankles, feet, and toes. If you have arthritis or even just age or overweight, this means everything. Most of all it means there is a chance you will continue to use it.
And this is an excellent exercycle. It is well-made, good quality, and most of all dead quiet, apparently because it uses magnetic resistance. Unlike a mechanical one based on friction, this one needs to be plugged in to a socket. The positive payback is the quiet and that there is no vibration through your knees, which can get miserable.
There is a rack on which to place your book or iPad while exercising and it even has built in speakers. Push the exerbike's plug into the headphone jack on your iPad and it is good to go. You control volume on the iPad, not on the bike.
The gotcha, which can really ruin your day, is the mounting of that stem with the electronics on top of it. It slides over a shaft and is secured to the shaft with four bolts. Those bolts are designed to fall into the flywheel housing as soon as they possibly can. If they do, you are in for a prolonged bout of unpleasantness and difficulty. Nothing is mentioned in the instructions about what to do about this.
Here's what you do. When you get to where you are about to mount the electronics assembly shaft sleeve onto its post, you wrap a towel around that shaft like you were a barber and it was the customer's neck. Keep it snug. Maybe put some strong rubber bands around it that you don't mind sacrificing. THEN put in the bolts.
If you have already dropped a bolt in the flywheel housing, it will likely be magnetically stuck to the flywheel. This is a good thing because now you know where it is and with the right tools can get at it. Go to a hardware store and get the stronger small magnet they've got and a stiff metal rod. Ideally glue or epoxy the magnet onto the metal rod. Or you can just let the magnet hold itself onto the end of the metal rod. With the strong little magnet on the end of the metal rod and a flashlight, fish the bolt out of the flywheel housing. It won't be easy because your magnet will also be attracted to everything else metal inside the housing. With patience you will eventually get it out. NOW put the towel around the neck of the barbershop customer before before putting the bolts in.
