Bought first one for mom and grandma (70 & 98 y old) few years ago. They use it daily while watching TV. Can bike forwards and backwards, we don't put any tension on the bike, like spinning, only slow speed. Great for circulation and anyone with heart problems. Hand rests comfy for elderly to get in and out of the seat. I have arthritis at 40 and this is the ticket to daily exercise without much effort or thought :) Just jump on, again - while watching TV. Within a week legs, thighs don't giggle!!! Butt is totally reshaped. Very happy with this purchase.
So, keep in mind -- great for seniors (even cranky ones, also ones with dementia), great low impact cardio, great for someone with debilitating arthritis, even while in major pain - takes your mind away from it... Sometimes I go into spinning mode and start sweating. Totally up to how you feel at the moment. No need for trips to gym, etc.
Thank you, Overstock. I ordered the bike last Saturday. I received the bike on Wednesday and assembled it by myself last night. I already used it last night. The bike is absolutely quiet, no noise. GREAT BIKE! Also, big thank you to my fellow reviewers, the assembly hints were very useful. But it is not rocket sience. You need to assemble a few big pieces and pull the wires through them. I love that the bike is sturdy enough for safe exercise but not too heavy to move it around. I am very happy with it. One of my best online purchases.
I absolutely love this bike. I have arthritis in both knees and needed a way to exercise without putting weight on my knees. This is it! I've been pedaling away since I've had it and there is NO weight, pressure or pain on the knees and I am getting a great workout! Thanks, o.co!!!
How accurate was the sizing? Very
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
The bike is great. The instructions for assembly were fine. The only problem encountered was that I was not quite strong enough to assemble the cables etc. However, a little help from a friend led me to success. Four hands are better than two for this project. If buying this for a family member, please assist in the assembly.
The problem is, this bike is too small for me as an adult, it cannot be adjusted to fit my legs and I'm only 5'4". Could not return because after the payment had been billed I ha shredded to receipt. Now have a recumbent bike that I cannot use.
Good bike... used it a couple times so far. The only thing I think I would change would be to add the additional set of handles by the computer module. More for appearance than functionality... that small computer module looks a little weird floating in air. It's also a very silent bike. This is replacing a noisy recumbent bike we bought at a big box store a few years ago.
You can't beat the price for this bike! It was fairly easy to put together. I took all of the parts and organized them by type. After that, it took me about an hour and a half to put it together. It is extremely quiet! I can watch the tv at normal sound levels without any distraction. I recently had knee surgery and am using the bills as part of my physical therapy. For the price, you can't go wrong with this bike!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality of this bike is very good. It's sturdy and extremely quiet.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? I had some trouble attaching the computer screen piece - it didn't seem to fit. My husband worked on it and was able to force it onto the bike.
