So far I am very happy with this bike. The seat is very uncomfortable so I replaced it, as other reviewers have suggested. I ordered this because I have problems with my feet, so treadmill use is not an option for me. I am pleased with my purchase and was amazed by the speedy delivery.
I would not recommend this to a friend and I'll tell you why. The Monitor Screen is behind the tightening Knob. Which is really a not thought out well idea because you do not have a clear view of the screen. Also, beware! Of Two more Problems: 1. The Model shown in the Diagram IS NOT what the buyer gets! And 2. The pedals are so Hard on the feet & with socks! So, do yourselves a favor and avoid this item. It's a Bad one!
Purchased this bike to go with my Drafting desk (also bought here on Overstock) and it was one of the best investments I ever made!. It fits under the desk perfectly and I can now work and work out at the same time. As a web and graphics designer I spend many hours a front of computer and needed some solution to keep me moving without interrupting my creative flow :) This thing works like a charm and I actually lost 25 pounds since I started using it. I barely noticed that I work out but obviously my body did :)
Here is the desk I purchased to work with this bike. Please consider I am only 5'1" so this may not work for everyone.
The bike did not come assembled as suggested. It took about an hour to assemble and the directions weren't that difficult. The tension for the pedals works fine, but there is not a tension adjuster for the arm crank. Otherwise it is just an average exercise bike and a comparable bike could probably be found for less money!
My doctor suggested I do some kind of exercise. I am limited as to what I can do because of arthritis and fibromyalgia. She thought I could handle a stationary bike. I did not want to spend a lot of money on one in case I could not use it. After looking on many sites I went to Overstock and found this item. I read the reviews and decided that this would be a good one for me. As it turned out I did not go wrong with purchasing this bike. My husband had no trouble putting it together. It is very quiet. I mostly use it while we are watching TV. Would recommend this bike for someone who has problems like me or just someone who would like to exercise. It does not take up very much room and folds easily to store.
