There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I was surprised that is was harder to assemble and the fit was poor on the seat attachments. The instructions a very poorly done. In addition there was a screw missing. Three adults working together for an hour to finally attach the seat. The rest was 10 minutes, and trivial to do. All the tools (allen wrenches, wrench) needed were included but I used my own crescent wrench rather than the included tool. There were several sizes of screws and no indication of a way to identify the particular screw for a particular step. I suggest you attach the seat rails loosely to the frame, then attach the seat to the rails, then tighten the rails. I used the larger of the small screws to attach the rails and the smaller of the small screws to attach the seat to the rails.
This bike has resistance only in the forward direction, I wish one of the reviews had told me that. I was hoping alternate directions to work different muscles. The seat is a little higher than the Stamina bike and the resistance seems lower at the low numbers. I used the 2 on Stamina and 2 on this bike is easier. With only 8 settings this may become a problem. This bike is exceptionally quiet during use, which is so nice if you want to multitask. I read my with my kindle but it would be great with tv or music, or for someone who just enjoys quiet. The seat adjusting mechanism did loosen and I had to reposition during use, but it was easy, and I don't think it is risky in any way, more like an annoyance.
I got the Canopy protection and they contacted me right away to let me know they stand behind the purchase, hopefully I will not need it.
After putting it together I wish I had gotten the Nautilus R514 Recumbent Exercise Bike; I was wanting more for my hard earned cash. But I will give it a go, and hopefully remember to give an update in a couple of months.
I got a request to update so here it is: Dec 19th 2012 I am glad I got the bike. The seat does come loose during use but it has not stopped us from using it. No additional problems have developed. I think that if you are happy with the features and limitations discussed you will be happy over the long term with the bike. I have not needed the Canopy Protection and I do not expect to ever need it.
Another update Dec 16 2014: two more years and this bike is performing well. So well I am going to raise the rating from 3 to four. I had forgotten all the things I wrote about putting the bike together! But that was a one time problem, they bike still works well, the seat still loosens, but it is not a big deal. If it were not for the seat I would give this bike five stars. The bike is still very quiet. I am very happy with this bike.
However, my dissatisfaction comes from the low effort required even at 8 (the highest tension). My wife, who keeps fit and has access to "real" machines in her gym at her work place says that this is very weak -- in fact, I am totally out-of-shape, and I could use it at "8" right away -- so it's not really much of a challenge. Unfortunately, I have plantar fasciitis and can't do walking or jogging or a treadmill -- I need a no-impact machine, and this is the only alternative.
I tried to contact the manufacturing company as to whether there was any way (e.g., an adjustment) that was possible to increase tension, but I have been ignored. I hope nothing breaks, because apparently there's no way of getting help or advice.
BTW, it was easy to assemble despite vague instructions -- it was intuitive.
All in all, I gave it 2 out of five stars only because it's better than remaining a couch potato, but I wouldn't recommend it or buy it again at that price.
I had a recumbent bike about ten years ago that had a better seat cushion. However, it certainly wasn't as overall comfortable as this bike. I just put a pillow down after about 30 minutes of riding, or I take a five minute break.
I can talk on the phone, play on the ipad, read a book, all while on this bike. I use it for a low-impact aerobic workout, and it is the first time in a loooong time I've stuck with an exercise regimen. I mean, it's right there in the living room, waiting for me whenever I use it, whether it's for two hours or five minutes.
The only downside (didn't take away any stars for it, of course) is that my kids think this is a great toy. They whine when I won't let them use it because it will mess up my stats. They say, "But Mommy, I neeeeed to exercise." I guess the bike is a little too much fun...
