Enjoying the bike. Good sturdy quality. Only complaint is the computer system only recognizes speed when measuring calories burned. It does not account for the tension setting.

We haven't even been able to use the elliptical yet because it is still in pieces in our garage. Before we could get the first bolt in to put the machine together, we realized that the bolts had not been machined correctly, so we had to call the company and request new ones be sent. That took over another week. We purchased the product because we thought ProForm was a good brand, but now we are not so sure. Once we are able to finally get the machine together and can actually try to use it, we will update our review.

This is an okay bike, not gym quality -- but worth the $500 IF it had the heart rate monitor capability advertised. It is true it is compatible with polar heart rate monitors, but they don't tell you you have to have a receiver too -- and they are the only ones who will sell it to you. So, if heart rate monitoring is important to your workout add another $150 - $200 to the price of this bike. There are other bikes on the market with heart rate monitoring and a better build. Also, Proform customer service is very poor, long wait times, both for email response and on hold with phone in service. They don't know the products, give incorrect information, then don't take accountability.

I bought this treadmill because it was small and portable and I wanted something for upstairs (my real treadmill is in the basement) that I could tuck away in the hall closet. Well, besides being able to do that, it's pretty much a waste of money. Easy to assemble but then I got on it. Takes a lot of adjusting to get the belt at the right resistance, about 1/2 hour of tweeking. Feels out of control when you walk. Have to pay attention to your stride or it can be jerky. Could never take my hands off the handlebars or who knows what would happen! Manual does NOT mean magnetic resistance. The walk is not smooth at all. And, it's not that quiet. Overall, spend the extra $150 and get a Proform. Spend several hundreds more and get a nice Nordictrack....which I've had for 8 years and still love.

The shipping box was not designed well for this relatively heavy bike. It should have had heavy duty flat pieces of cardboard in the bottom of the box before loading the bike parts, and on the top before closing the box top offer better support and protection during shipping. It could also use more straps (and tighter straps) around the outside. Several of the straps on my box had slid down to the ends of the box as shippers handled the box. As they slid the box on their trucks, the straps slid along the box. As a result of this poor packaging, my bike arrived with the bottom of the box spread open at the box cover seam and there was some minor damage to the bike. One piece of plastic scraped rather deeply and the large plastic "body covers" for the bike were somewhat scuffed due to repeated shifting and rubbing inside the loosened packaging. As for the bike itself, overall, it is very nice with one exception. I feel the bottom seat support should be larger, slightly softer, and preferably contoured a little. Even better if the seat bottom (And back) could be a little adjustable for angle. I test road many bikes before buying this bike (Over the internet without being able to sit on it in person). I found several other bikes with better seats, like some NordicTrac and ProForm models, but these either had poor reviews or had too much peddle resistance in their lowest setting. Others like some Schwinn bikes had good reviews but their seats were very hard and uncomfortable. This Xterra seemed to have a good compromise of price, peddle ease, program variety, durability, and seat comfort given what I could see from the pictures, specs, and reviews. I bought this bike for my mother who had a knee replacement about 6 months ago. I have used it to get my own evaluation of it and she has used it as well. The walk through design is good for people with limited mobility. Overall, I am pretty happy with the bike, and the seat is pretty good, but if the seat was redesigned and improved, the bike could be fantastic. If it had a better seat, I would probably buy one for myself.

By the second time my husband used this treadmill the runner started slipping. I waited about a week before using it and the incline froze. It allowed me to raise it but would not lower (although the display panel indicated it had). My husband said it froze like that about half the times he'd used it and the only way to fix it was to unplug the machine. Well, that may have worked the first couple times but it doesn't anymore. So now we have a treadmill that cost over*** that can't do anything but a 3% incline. No point in returning it - pretty sure it weighs around 300 lbs - no way I'm paying those shipping costs. Purchase at your own risk.

It's big, it's clunky and it's definitely a piece of furniture. I just wish I used it more.

I ordered this in January. When I received it part #101 had a broken piece, just aesthetic. Then when I put it together the computer controls worked fine but the manual controls only had one button that worked. I contacted ICON support and it took weeks between replies (email, don't even try calling). I went through multiple troubleshooting steps (throughout those weeks) and finally got them to say that they would ship a new console. I received the part that with the piece broken off already, but the part that amkes the whole treadmill work is still waiting for the new console, which was on backorder (that says a lot in itself. I must not be the only person with this problem.). I sit here now, over 3 months later, with no part and a high dollar piece of junk. I will not buy from overstock again. ***

After hours of assembly (don't use the "tools" in the box) I turned on the machine only for the resistance 1 setting to feel like 10. If I turned up the resistance it got easier, but then I heard clicking in the resistance motor. I called the service # and they sent me a new motor in a brown envelope with no instructions. Though self explanatory I installed blind, turned on the machine, and found that it was easier to use at resistance 1 (I'm am in shape 180 lb man), impossible at 3....then I heard a snap. The new resistance motor snapped again. So, now I have a 3rd one on the way in the mail...and now a service tech scheduled to install it. "A" for service, "F" for out of the box plug and play. It's been almost 2 months and wished I didn't cancel my gym membership the week it arrived (in a THOUSAND PIECES).
