I was afraid that for the price this would be flimsy, and very cheaply made. It's not! My rather large, 240 husband uses it confidently without experiencing any hardware issues. This piece is easy to assemble and even easier to use, which is just what we were looking for. We can easily put it in the garage with our treadmill if we have guests. Otherwise, we transfer it between our living area downstairs, and the office as well as den upstairs, without any issues. It is easy to move because there are mini wheels on the bottom, and it is lightweight enough to lug up and down the stairs. We have been using it every day. Love it!
This bike is simple, sturdy and ideal for a home bike. It is lightweight so can easily be moved around if needed. I had one in the hospital after surgery and wanted one exactly like it in my home. Love this bike.
Did the product fit true to size? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Great
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
I bought this bike to help me get exercise at home as I'm currently pregnant and it's too cold to continue walking outside. The size of the bike is perfect - it's not too tall or obtrusive so I currently have it set up in the corner of my living room. It's also very quiet - I can work out while we all sit and watch TV together in the evening without causing a problem. My 11-year-old daughter and I put it together in about an hour without any trouble so we had no trouble with the setup. I love how it's so easily adjustable so my husband (who's well over six feet tall) and I can both use it. It's not super fancy and the display is fairly simple (it doesn't have all the programs like the bikes at the gym, of course) but it is sturdy and you can adjust the tension for a more or less strenuous exercise. It is light and has wheels on the front, too, so it can easily be rolled into another area if company is coming. I would absolutely recommend this bike - it's a perfect, low-cost option to have at home.

Putting this bike together was rather difficult on my own, but I got it done. After that challenge I was excited to start using it but quickly became very disappointed at the lack of tension provided by this bike. At the highest setting, I was not challenged whatsoever, so much so that I took that part apart to check to see that I had connected it properly. Yes, it was connected as instructed so I put it back together and tried again. I called the company to see if there was something I could do to improve the tension but was told there was nothing that could be done. The customer service technician suggested that I check the connection which I'd already done. I'm doing to take it apart again to see if I can come up with some way to improve the functionality of this bike.
How accurate was the sizing? no complaint with the physical description
Please tell us about the quality of the product. This is a solid product made from quality parts with the exception of the tension mechanism.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? I feel that the lack of tension I am experiencing is a defect but the manufacturer offers me no way to correct it
It was my fault. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. I actually gave them another chance and they sent me another defective unit. When I finally called the only number I could sweat out the clerk all but laughed at me. I wouldn't but another Marcy product if my life depended on it. Pure junk.
Fortunately my husband is handy because there were no assembly instructions included. It took about 30 minutes to assemble (I held the handle bars so the bolts could go in). Itbhelps tom have a second pair of hands but one person could do it - it would take a little longerbthough. I wish the back of the seat was adjustable, but I will just use a pillow to change the pitch. Good basic bike.
I don't like to exercise, but tried a recumbent bike at a friends. Even though our FIRST bike from Overstock came with something not working quite right, they quickly replaced it, and now it works like a charm. We've had it for quite a while now, over a year, and what I like best is that it is quiet enough, that we have it in our living room, and we can easily watch TV while riding it, and the TV volume barely has to be turned up....My two kids, ages 17 and 13 also use it. An extra bonus is that if we have a bunch of teens over for a party or a movie, it provides one more comfortable place to sit!
Unfortunately, we do not have that excercise computer. You might just try searching the internet.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 18, 2013
Can someone who is 5 ft tall use this bike? (I have found that even "adjustable bikes" are sometimes too long.)auntmy on Jan 4, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The adjustable oversized seat has high-density padding to comfortably accommodate most body types and sizes and a uniquely designed six-position seat stride adjustment custom fits your individual leg length by placing your body in the optimum stride position.
