- Pedal design: The ergonomic design of all SOLE stationary bikes is unique because of a specific pedal feature. A two-degree inward cant on the pedal prevents aches in your knees and feet by aligning the joints in their correct posture during a workout.
- Adjustable seating: Allows the user to move forward and backward on the seat, as well as the back rest.
- Display: Easy console viewing prevents workout frustrations, displaying workout info on a large screen.
- Frame: A strong, durable frame is vital for light commercial bikes to hold up to repeated use by multiple people. Heavy steel tubing, along with aluminum shroud, makes SOLE bikes practically indestructible, but also light and manageable. Two wheels in the front act as touch points, and make moving the bike easy and convenient.

Also, the electronic console connects to the front mast with four screws. The screws must line up precisely with metal threaded sleeves embedded within the console. The problem is that console connection point is recessed about an inch. . Still this would not have been difficult if one was not instructed to install the front handlebars first. The back of the handlebar obstructs the view of the rear console connection to the mast and ruins the screw driver angle. Also, the screws must be lines up perfectly with the embedded threads. You think you have it but you don't. I was not able to complete the task until after I disassembled the front handlebars. Finally, one must assemble the bike where you want to use it. The problem here is the front plastic wheel cover. It is built too close to the ground and drags and scrapes against low pile carpet when you attempt to move the bike. Also, I tried to move it over a protective rubber floor cover made for treadmills and bikes and the front cover always dragged it preventing installation. I will have to figure something else out in order to protect the carpet.
The pedal straps are also a chore to install as the holes are too small to fit. I had to use an expander and then work quickly to get the foot strap over the connection point since the expanded hole in the strap quickly resumes its original shape I suppose due to the memory of plastic or rubber. I suppose a pair of pliers and a great deal of strength would also work.
The good part of installation is that Sole provides the tools and good step wise instructions. Also, all of the bolts and nuts are packaged separately by assembly steps so it is easy to keep things straight, Also, the shipping and the packing of the parts was the best I have ever seen. Amazon as always provided a great delivery experience.
The actual exercise is rated a five plus. It is the best bike I have ever had and I have had many including a Cateye in the late 80's and more recently a Tunturi. There are enough programs and options to satisfy any enthusiast. The seating position is a couple of degrees more reclined than other recumbents but it works. Also, the seat is the best and most comfortable of the last 4-5 bikes I have had. The riding experience is very smooth and exceptionally quiet. I have taken the resistance up to level 32 of 40 and it is flawless. Also, the bike has the option of entering your weight in order to give you a more accurate calories burn rate. It has a fan and connections for audio devices and for a heart rate strap. Finally, the bike is self powered and requires no plug in to the wall. The 30 pound flywheel is the heaviest in this price range and the home warranty (2 years) is also the best for bikes at this price. I use these devices five days a week for 45 minutes to an hour. Hopefully this will last as long as my Tunturi which I still have after 3 1/2 years of fairly heavy use. It is nice to have such a good quality spare.
Amazon doesn't always do a great job with packing items - I've had many things destroyed in transit, but this package was great - damaged en route, but the bike was absolutely fine. It took a few hours to assemble (a very thorough engineer friend did it for me) and the construction is quality all the way.
The ride is quiet, there are a wide variety of pre-existing workouts and you can set your own. The seat back does not move, but there is great lumbar support and it's super comfortable. I do wish the control panel was lower and smaller - who needs to look at this all the time when you're on the bike (the only design flaw as far as I'm concerned.) It's a quality product and I definitely recommend it.
Bike has great number of resistance levels. I'm just a beginner so for my training programs I'm using about 15% of max resistance.
I'm over 6' and I have no issues adjusting it or using it. My wife is 5'6" and she initially complained about ipod holder that gets in a way when she works out.
Overall it looks and feels like a professional equipment. Excellent product so far
