This product was a disappointment. I loved the concept, but the quality leaves a lot to be desired. The resistance knob does very little, and the pedals do not turn smoothly. I ride this bike for an hour at a time and don't feel like I get much of a workout. It seems to work better for the arms then the legs. If you have the room, stick to the full size machine.
decent for the price. i don't like that i need to adjust the tension continuoslly, as it loosens while you're using the cycle. but, it does serve it's purpose. i have limited mobilty, and i like that this is used in the comfort of my own home. for this alone, i would reccomend it.
I brought this machine for my wife and she seems to like it a lot. She uses it every day and it appears to be doing the job it was designed to do. My wife had knee replacement surgery about 3 years ago and wanted a small portable machine she could use in front of the TV . She's been using it for about 3 week now and it's become part of her exercise routine. She has better mobilty in her knee and she's losing weight also. Delivery was good; 4 days from purchase date. Assembly was easy. It took me only 10 minuites to put it together (it comes with its own wrench). Good alternative to a full size stationery bike.
My daughter is recovering from a serious automobile accident, and has physical limitations that will take maybe a year or two to resolve. The Easy Cycle has been used to improve her range of motion, for increasing stamina and strength, while reclining in bed and while sitting on her wheelchair. The Physical Therapist who is working with my daughter is impressed by the sturdiness of the bike; how well made it is, especially for the price.
I use this every day, and believe it is worth every cent. I use it on carpet, and I have discovered that the distance the cycle is from the chair I'm sitting on makes all the difference in the cycle's stability. If the distance is just right, the cycle will not shift and slip away. I have an arthritic knee, and I was unable to use my daughter's expensive recumbent cycle, because I couldn't get it adjusted to my needs. My little mini-cycle has taken care of that problem just fine. Presently I use it 20 minutes a day, in addition to other exercises.
Was extremely pleased at how fast the order arrived and especially so with the quality of the mini-exerciser. Having recently had both knees replaced, I needed to keep the new knees moving to prevent excessive scarring internally. This mini-exerciser was recommended to me by other knee replacement patients. It has helped a lot already and has allowed for improved range of motion. I would recommend it.
It is a great exercisor for my 85 year old aunt. She is actually using it on a daily basis. The only problem is that one pedal is harder to pump and squeeks. I haven't been able to change that by reassembling it and putting it back together. But it does the necessary job!
SETUP IS RELATIVELY EASY, THE USE OF A STRAP ON WHEEL ISN'T CONDUCIVE TO FREE-WHEELING AS YOU WOULD EXPERIENCE IN MACHINES EMPLOYED IN A CARDIAC REHAB PROGRAM. SOLID CONSTRUCTION, DIGITAL READOUT GOOD FOR YOUNGER PEOPLE WITH GOOD EYESIGHT. DIRECTIONS FOR USE PRETTY GOOD AND CLEAR. GOOD PRODUCT FOR THE HOMEBOUND PERSON WITH LITTLE STORAGE SPACE. TO PERFORM ARM EXERCISES THE UNIT MUST BE ON A SURFACE THAT GRIPS ; NOT SMOOTHE LIKE A TILE COUNTER OR SHELF.
This product is better that I hoped for. It is portable and has great tension. I really feel like I am getting a good workout. I use it in front of the tv. or when I am on the computer, or just reading a book. Very glad I made this purchase. Great product at a great price.
it slips away from you. Does not have a flow to it, purchased for physical therapy reasons, absolutely no benefit whatsoever. not worth the $$$

It looks like it would be great. It's light and can be stored anywhere. However ours is missing a screw so we can't use it yet. I'm hoping to get the missing piece in soon.

This only works properly if its re-engineered by the purchaser! Computer didn't work cos sensor was incorrctly positioned, main shaft moved laterally so the wheel fouled the main frame when in use. So, Dad put a spacer on the main shaft which worked well as it stopped the lateral movement. The plug connection on the computer board was poorly soldered, giving an intermittent connection. Re-soldering sorted this out fine. Good product once re-engineered properly! Excellent exercise for post-op physio (amongst other exercises) after knee replacement.
