Without question, this is the ONE thing I've bought I've never tire of using & is likely keeping me alive (I could be fitter but I'd be FAR more out of shape if I didn't use this religiously. Plus MY fault for not keeping tension higher).
So very durable. OH and this is important.....It's quiet (you can watch movie, TV, read or listen to your music) so you won't disturb others. Or have your TV blasting.
My ONLY slight suggestion is the monitor on top (while it works) came loose---that's seriously my OWN small issue--so I have it rigged up with something underneath it to keep in place.
OH and come to think of it, it DOES tell you calories burned. I sure HOPE it's accurate as I find that number MOST generous (an hour is always about 400 or better for me...that's a lot of calories).
You get a good product for the money. It doesn't give your heart Pulse & maybe other (needless, imo) reading many more expensive models do but know this....that's kinda fluff, you can easily take your OWN pulse (and do you REALLY need a machine to tell you how HARD you are working out? you shouldn't; YOUR BODY will tell you...by way of pounding heart, or breathing harder. Least that's MY take).
Hope they continue to make this for next time I'm up for a new one.
Good deal for machine we should all be using if we have back & other problems (that is ME. BUM back).
Assembly was time-consuming, although in my case it was complicated by the fact that my 2-year-old was "helping." Took about an hour to get everything together. Other customers have noticed that the bikes come damaged, and have blamed it on FedEx or UPS; I think the problem is actually inadequate packaging. A slightly larger box and a few foam inserts would do the job. My bike came with a small piece of the plastic cracked off, but it has no effect on the operation of the bike so I'm not concerned. Also one of the plugs that go in the end of the handlebars is damaged, and won't stay in.
One customer complained that, despite his being in only "decent" shape, the bike doesn't offer enough resistance; he either is in FAR better shape than he thinks, or has a damaged bike. My bike offers enough resistance at level 2 (of 8) to get my heart going nicely, and I can simulate hills by clicking to level 3 or 4 and really get puffing. Obviously a high-end professional model would offer programs to automatically adjust the resistance, but those bikes cost $800. This bike costs less than a quarter of that.
The seat padding is, as other customers have noted, just a tad thin; after an hour of riding, I have to spend a few minutes walking around, trying to get blood flowing back to my hindquarters. I may get some kind of foam to stick on the seat and see if that helps.
The bike is indeed quiet, although my particular model has developed a disconcerting noise at certain points of the pedal revolution. There's no grinding or change in resistance; just an odd hushed hum that happens for a split second. Something may be brushing against the internal components. That doesn't really speak well of the fit and assembly of the product, but in case you haven't been paying attention: this bike cost me $170, about $500 cheaper than any high-reviewed alternative.
Cons: Shoddy workmanship and packaging, which have no bearing on operation; a less than ideal seat.
Pros: Quiet, smooth, good resistance, and above all, CHEAP AS FREE.
Initially, I really liked this bike. After owning it for 6 months, it has become a towel rack. Here is why:
1) It is EXTREMELY basic. The 'computer' features one button (RESET). I don't think the calorie counter is accurate at all. The 'computer' clips into place and comes off if you bump your knee on it.
2) The pedal movement isn't as fluid as the movement of a more expensive bike. It feels cheap.
3) I don't get a good workout on this bike. It's hard to explain, but I can spend 30 minutes on this bike and not break a sweat. I get a better workout on the recumbent bikes at the gym. Perhaps it is because it is magnet-driven?
4) The bike was really quiet for a month. Now it squeaks when pedaling, like the magnets or pedals are catching on something inside the bike. I'm sure I could take it apart and fix it, but you shouldn't have to do that to an almost-new product.
Overall, it is a DECENT product. However, I personally do not recommend it. If you plan to use this bike every day, skip this product and keep shopping around.
