The bike arrived slightly damaged where the rear stabiliser bar slots into the main bike frame most likely caused in transit and the locking nuts were missing from the spindle of the moveable handle bars, apart from that it is a good exercise bike and does what it says in the advert.

This is good for light exercise or a beginner's bike. The seat is comfortable and easy to adjust for the length of your legs. It was easy to assemble except for pulling the wires through the upright post to attach to the computer. There was no suggestion as to how to do it. I attached the wrench (for weight) to a long piece of string and dropped the string through the upright tube. Then, I removed the wrench and tied the string to the bundle of 3 wires and pulled them through. Also, the front and rear stabilizers are easier to attach by yourself if you prop the front and rear of the bike on a telephone book first. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

I have very short legs (30") for my height (74"). This device is barely adjustable to my leg length. Other than that it looks like it will do the job. It is very stable and not as heavy as I feared. It is less movable than some of these types of devices as the rear needs to be elevated quite high until the transport wheels engage. I was able to adjust the tension below my pain threshold of my knees which was my primary concern.

This was an okay bike. My disappointment is that I thought the bike was an incumbent bike. With my knee damage. I am unable to use this equipment. The exercise bike would be great for anyone who can ride a normal exercise bicycle. I need an incumbent. My mistake in confusing recumbent and incumbent. It was pretty easy to put together. The only issue I had was the positioning and placement of the rear handle bars. Great that it folds way. Now I just need to find a fold-away incumbent exercise bicycle!

Bike was pretty easy to put together even though I had help. But my biggest issue is the seat. A bit too small. All I'm saying for us with a rear end that just a little bigger (size 14), this seat is quite uncomfortable. I've resorted by putting a small pillow onto seat. Cannot stay on bike for more than half an hour. Don't really look at monitor for readings, just time myself when watching a tv show. But I do like it.

This bike is of great quality and solid, similar to the ones in the gym. It came in a solid packing, The problem I had was that two of the screws on the bottom of the base (1 front and 1 rear) won't go in. I had to assemble without them. I feel those screws on the bottom of the base have no effect on the base anyway as it does not hold anything . The cap nuts on the top do the job. Also it was giving some noise around the chain guard. I guess I need to tighten then or oil it as someone mentioned in other reviews. I am happy to have purchased this.

I like it. It was easy to assemble (30 minutes) and works well. It is comfortable to use though the front handlebars still mystify me as to their purpose since it is a recumbent bike. It was extremely well packed with a lot of styrofoam padding yet the plastic was cracked in two places (with one looking like an attempt to repair with heat) on the wheel housing and the rounded metal was bent up at one corner where it attachs to the rear support bar. Just cosmetic because none of the damage interferes with operation so I have kept it. I haven't bothered to set the "computer" since I don't care about it. The bike is much sturdier than most I've seen in the stores. I liked that the seat was adjustable, but it would be a hassle to adjust it for persons of various heights on a regular basis.

I received this product today - just SIX DAYS after I ordered it!I opened it up and had it assembled within 15 minutes - SUPER-simple... The core of the product is already put together... You put the pedal and base on yourself with PROVIDED TOOLS! I just had surgery not long ago but, have been given the clear to do "low-impact cardio".Walking is not getting the job done. Years ago had a gym membership and would easily spend 30+ minutes daily on the elliptical. When I saw this, I thought it would be a great purchase. I hopped right on this thing and was moving in seconds... forward and backwards. Felt it in my legs & rear immediately. I have read reviews on other sites for this and similar products that talk about balance being a challenge... and that you have to be careful that you do not tip over.. NOT the case for me at all. If you are familiar with the larger elliptical machines in a gym you should be ok on this as well. If you have not used the larger machines or you are challenged using them - you may be challenged a bit ... it is a movement that takes some getting used to. The product itself seems extremely sturdy (I have not used it extensively yet). It weighs 30lbs so, it's not something you'd want to have to move around a lot.

I ordered this item based on it's consistant high ratings and the fact that it was only $2.95 to ship. It arrived in 3 days and being a first time customer, shipping was *** and this item is hefty, sturdy. I put it together in under 5 minutes got on and off I went. I use it every morning, again before work and when I come home from work. I use it in easily & quietly in front of the tv and in 2.5 weeks I am noticing amazing changes in my lower abdomin, my hips, above my butt, MY BUTT is firming & rounding ( I am amazed myself at the remarkable difference) my thighs, my calves, the way my clothes fit, etc. etc. I repeat it has been 2.5 weeks. Last Saturday a gentleman I semi know, pinched my rear end!! I will be adding 3lb. hand weights this weekend, for sure. PS. Ive been walking to work more often as the springtime comes, all up hill, less huff & puff. Ciao~

Take your time! Organize & lay out all parts. Tear out the page with the bolts & screws for easy identification. If you have not put together a lot of things (furniture, electronics etc) you could find this project daunting. The hardware can be difficult to determine, however, I put this bike together by myself in 2 1/2 hours. The only time I ran into trouble was connecting the front & rear parts of the bike. The provided allen wrench did not reach in far enough & I dropped the bolts into the bike twice requiring me to take it apart & retrieve the bolts. This was a minor problem. Otherwise, I had little trouble with the assembly. The electronics were assembled well & did not give me any trouble as other reviews have indicated. Once together it operated beautifully. It's operation is smooth & its gives a great workout. The display is easy to read & operate without reading the manual. I would definitely recommend this bike.

I wanted a no nonsense, compact treadmill that folded. I found just that in the Sunny Manual Folding Treadmill. Pros: It was easy to put together, is stable and sturdy. Not for a 250lb. person. I really like the incline. If you want it flater, just put something uner the rear and make it flat. It is easy to move around and folds up nicely to put in a closet. If will fit under a bed if it is a taller bed. The price is great and makes having a treadmill possible for those of us watching our pennies. I wanted a very basic treadmill and that's what this is. It's great. Cons: It doesn't fit under most beds. The digital computer that clocks time, calories and heart rate is very small and hard to read. The computer came broken off, however the company quickly replace it and it was easy to reinstall. No questions asked! I don't use it anyway. I just set my kitchen timer.

This item was a gift for a family member. Purchase price was lower than any other retailer. Shipping was a little slow... but for $2.95 (the price I paid for shipping), I could definitely live with that! After item arrived and as I was unpacking the box, I noticed a plastic part (adjuster for rear stabilizer bar) was badly broken and unusable. I believe that it had been packaged too close to the side of the box and although no damage was noted on the outside, it must have been hit just right in order to have been broken the way it was. I finished assembling the bike anyway as the broken part was not a critical part. Everything went together perfectly and although there were directions that came with it, I did not find it necessary to use them. Everything was pretty much self-explanatory! After assembly, I located the parts list that came with the bike and found out the name of the broken piece. I emailed Overstock.com and explained what had happened and what it would take to correct the condition. I received a reply almost instantly which stated that their parts department would be contacting me shortly. The next day I received an email from the parts department stating that they had located the part and that it would be shipped directly to me in short order. I received the correct part a few days later and installed it. I believe that this machine will perform as described and that it will get a lot of use. It is designed well and is comfortable to use. I was extremely pleased with how fast a replacement part was shipped out to me. As of this writing the machine is functioning fine!

I was nervous to by an exercise bike online, without being able to check it out (sit on it, pedal on it, try it out) first. And was very nervous about assembling the bike. But I am very happy with my purchase (so far -- I just got it last week and have ridden it a couple of times). The bike is quiet and the tension is easily adjustable for an easier or a harder ride. I can watch TV or place my ipad on the handle bars and watch or work while I ride. The heighth of the bike (handle bars and seat) can be adjusted easily by completely unscrewing the adjustment knobs and then moving the seat up/down, forward/back, and the handlebars up/down. It would be nice if then adjustment knobs had springs so you didn't have to unsrew them all the way to make the adjustments, but I am happy with the price I paid for this bike, so I don't mind it too much. In other words, I wouldn't pay more just for that feature alone. I am 5'4" and ride the bike easily and there is still room to lower the seat for someone short than me. My boyfriend who is 6'1" also uses the bike. The bike has small wheels in the front so we can easily tip the bike and then roll it into another room when we are not using it. Yes the seat is hard, but all spin bikes have hard seats. You just have to condition yourself to it. Meaning, after a few rides your rear end should get used to it and won't be sore anymore. Assembly: The bike was very easy to put together. The only problem I had was getting the seat to stay on. Once I realized that the top screwdriver provided in assembly kit also doubled as a wrench, I was able to use the tool to tighten the seat, and now it stays in place just fine. I was looking for a good quality basic bike for a decent price, and that is exactly what I got. Very happy with my purchase and hope that we get some good use out of this bike and it doesn't become a clothes rack anytime soon!
