I bought this bike to go in my spare bedroom so I can workout at home instead of getting up extra early to go to the gym before work. I have never assembled anything like this before and the box said to have 2 people to assemble the bike. My boyfriend was at work and I really wanted to try it out so I assembled it myself. It was so easy, 2 people is not necessary to assemble it. The directions were really easy to follow. I love the look of the bike. My spare bedroom is decorated in gray and red colors, so I love that this bike matches the decor. I keep it in the corner of the room and I wheel it in the middle of the room in front of the tv when I want to use it.It is really lightweight and easy to move. I love that it does not need to be plugged in. The computer runs on double A batteries that come with the bike, so you do not need to worry about it being near an outlet. You adjust the resistance with a knob on the center of the frame. It is a tough workout. I also like that it has a water bottle holder on the side. I am very happy with this purchase. It is a great bike and an AWESOME price.

I'd never bought a spin bike before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Assembly was easy enough, though the instructions could be a little more clear. An allen wrench and a screwdriver (with three different wrench mouths on the end) come included, so you don't need anything but what's in the box to put it all together. It's easy to adjust height and distance to the handlebars, same with resistance. Yes, the seat is hard. I don't notice it much when I'm spinning, and afterward I only notice the soreness every once in a while. The bike is not silent. It is, however, fairly quiet. I've been watching TV when spinning, and I only have to turn the volume up two or three notches to hear it as well as if I weren't spinning. The frame is metal and feels extremely sturdy, even on carpet. It's pretty easy to move, thanks to the wheels on the front. I'm very pleased overall. I've been using the bike every day for a week and a half now and it's great. Perhaps I'll change my mind when I'm in better shape and thus spending more time up off the saddle, but for now, I think this is an excellent bike for this price range.

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.

Overall, this is the best indoor bike for the price. Extremely simple to put together yourself. Has a timer, calorie counter, and distance tracker. Seat is uncomfortable after 20min, but most of them are. Other things I like about the bike: The iPad case I have fits perfectly over the timer display with the elastic band securing it like a tent so I can watch video, listen to music, surf the internet while I pedal. It's quiet. The straps on the pedals are adjustable to your foot size. I can lift up the front and easily roll it around the living area, it's not heavy. It has a heart rate sensor in the handles. Seat height is adjustable. I've had the product for over a month now- the only problem I had was that the internal resistance band fell off after 8 days of consecutive use. I thought it was broken, because it felt stuck and loose. But I took the entire bike apart, popped off the plastic frame- somewhat tricky ordeal- and watched a video on how to spin the resistance band back onto the turning wheel. I discovered that the design of the wheels and the ridges in the rubber band would shift out of place if you pedal backwards a few times. DO NOT PEDAL BACKWARDS. Get off the bike if you need to stretch. This doesn't happen to the bikes at the gym. Ever since I fixed it, I can now feel the different resistance levels. Before, when it arrived Level 2 felt like Level 8. It may have been defective, but in the end, I am extremely happy with the product.

This is a very sturdy and durable exercise bike. You can adjust the resistance with a turn of the knob in front of the bike. The seat is large The arm Exerciser makes it an all-in-one gym for me. nice and tall and doesn't take up much space if you want to push it into a small space when done. My son said that it was very easy to put it together. Great value for the price. Will never regret this purchase. Highly recommend.'

This exercise bike is wonderful! I've used it every day since it arrived about a week ago. It was easy to put together, it's sturdy and easy to move around. It doesn't take up a lot of space folded up in a corner. I simply unfold it and move it in front of the tv when I want to work out. It is very quiet, almost silent, when in use. The electronic display is very simple, but that's what I wanted so no complaints. The resistance is easily adjusted while riding. I am very happy with this product!

This bike arrived, I assembled it in about half an hour, and then did a 40 minute workout. I am beyond happy with the quality for the price I paid. No, this is not a $1500 bike, but it is definitely worth the price. It is quiet enough that I don't have to turn up the volume on my music at all. The belt drive works well. The saddle is decent. The handlebars are secure, nothing rattles, and the resistance adjusts nicely. Can't go wrong for the price!

I have had my Exerpeutic for about 3 weeks now and I'm very happy with it. It is super quiet and the pedal resistance feels just like a regular bike. I deducted one star because, as other reviewers have said, the seat is rather hard, and I would add that its adjustability is limited. I am 5'2" (125 lbs) and I am comfortable on the bike, but must sit on the edge of the seat and cannot set it lower. It does feel very stable and feels like riding a street bike. It stays in front of the TV for my use during week nights, and I can easily hear the tv's audio, it really is that quiet. I am very happy with this purchase.

I've owned this bike for about a month now and rode it about a dozen times and couldn't be happier. Setup was a breeze (don't let the diagram on the first page scare you - just look at the pictures, lay out all of your parts, and take it one step at a time. I don't assemble things....pretty much, ever....and it took me about 30 minutes to do this!) The bike works great - it's quiet, the resistance adjusts to provide me with an intensity of workout that perfectly meets my needs, and I love the stat monitor. I'm considering combining this with some walking/running outdoors and cancelling my $20/mo gym membership. Bonus: this fits easily into my bedroom closet, saving valuable floor space in my 2 bedroom condo when im not using it. Overall, I'm thrilled with this purchase!
