This is a great bike for the low price. It's a basic model with no bells or whistles, which is exactly what I wanted. The display is easy to read, and simple to use since there's only one button. :) It's very quiet, and the display is down quite low, making it simple to watch TV while riding. My only complaint is that the settings for the seat are too far apart, such that the spot that would be most comfortable for me is in between two settings. Otherwise, no complaints. Definitely a worthwhile purchase.
The bike worked for the first few minutes after it was put together, but then stopped counting and keeping track of the mileage. We contacted the manufacturer three separate times trying to gain assistance with the problem and still have not resolved it more than a month later. We have had to take it apart and put it back together each time the manufacturer thought it was one thing or another and we have gotten tired of dealing with it. This was not worth the money for it to not work.
By all means, this is a very basic and "economy" class equipment. No frills and from looking at it, I also wouldn't expect it to last for years. The monitor has a "fake counter" - I mean it keeps adding burned calories, even if you stand still. The numbers it's giving you are just not realistic - you will notice this right away, if you ever used a bike with a real calorie counter. The assmebly was super simple - I'm not inclined in this direction at all, and it took me maybe 20 minutes or so. Still - depending on what you're looking for, you may like it or not. Forget about any serious fitness on this thing, but I only need to do some pedaling to recover after a knee surgery, so this is fine with me. I needed something siple and cheap, so if it's gonna start collecting dust in couple of months, I'm not gonna feel like I wasted bunch of money. If you think you are a serious user or you are pretty advanced/ambitious, invest in something better, cause this is not a serious piece of equipment.
Not easy to assemble at all, so buyer beware. Once together, we found the meter read-out does not function. The heart-rate, miles and speed peddled, does not work. We called the manufacturer, and they offered to send a new front end or would assist over the phone our attempt to fix the problem. We have not done either. So I guess you take your chances when ordering this item. All in all, not a bad purchase.

this was a good deal and am looking for better healthy days ahead. overstock.com kept the promise of delivery date and included everything i needed to put the bike together properly.the only thing missing was the instruction manual which i hope to be recieving soon. i definately will come back for future orders. i an glad there is a place to go shop with confidence!
I got this as it was Dr.'s orders and for the price I feel like I got a really good deal. It is comfortable and easy to slide into a corner out of the way. Putting it together was a bit of a pain but worth it in the end, Use it every day and so far I am happy with my purchase. Good luck to all of you!
This item worked fine for the first 2 weeks, although the maximum resistance setting was rather weak in my opinion. The bike soon developed a tension problem, however... something inside the pedaling contraption started producing an uneven scraping which can be heard and felt. This makes it too loud to use without disturbing anyone in the room, and it also disrupts the exercise by grinding away the fluidity of motion. I'm pretty frustrated at this point... I didn't expect it to be a fantastic piece of equipment but I had hoped I'd get more than 2 weeks out of it.
I am very happy with my purchase. I checked other stores and Overstock.com completely beat them, with service, quality, delivery and the quickness of delivery. This thing was delivered to my front door. I put it together so easily it scared me. Every hole matched up for the screw, all of the hardware was there.
I wanted an exercise bike to use at home. I found this same bike at another place. It was $30.00 more and it was going to cost to ship or pick it up. The delivery was prompt. I ordered it on Saturday and it arrived on the following Thursday. The bike, itself is durable and was worth the price.

This machine is perfect. I have fluid issues in my legs and it can cause pain in my knees and ankles; ever since purchasing this I have had relief from this pain. I'm a stay at home mom and don't get out as much as I used to. The week before it arrived I was in severe pain and was having trouble walking. The night after using the bike I was feeling relief. It's easy to use, just sit in it and watch TV or a movie. You can put the resistance up higher or lower. I did over 20 miles in one day with the resistance low, it felt great to get the fluid in my legs moving. When you want a work out just put the resistance up higher. The machine will count your distance, calories, time, etc. and if you stop it immediately pauses (says stop) and if you don't reset it it'll remember where you were the last time you used it. My husband who is very athletic also enjoys using the machine. My husband and I put it together easily, it is completely quite, comfortable, perfect!! I am a real customer, a real person, and very satisfied; if this is what you are looking for purchase it!
This product is exactly as advertised - its not a health club bells/whistles bike but it is perfect for a small area and provides plenty of options for the novice user as myself. For the price and quality you can't beat this - I recommend it completely.

This was a birthday present from my husband at my request. I had used the recumbent in any hotel we traveled and fell in love with the ease with which you can read and work out. So This is band new, a moth old l, easy to put together. YES, I would recommend it now specially in the winter when it is difficult to go out and walk because fg being winter time, if not snow big winds. There are other more expensive models,but I don't see why there is a need to pay more. This model is excellent ! I recommend it for all of those who think health is paramount.

I would absolutely recommend buying this bike! I had been using a 1985 model upright bike (It was so old it had an actual tire on the front). I ride 10 miles a day. This bike is awesome! I wish I had bought it long, long ago! The seat is like a chair, no odd parting of your legs. There is also a back to lean on. There is ample padding. The pedals are very smooth, there is no hurt at all. It is a very fluid motion when you ride. It is also very quiet! Seriously, buy this product now! You will not be disappointed!

After recent knee replacement surgery I was looking for a good basic exercise bike that would not take up a lot of space with no fancy bells, whistles, gadgets and the like. This fit the bill too a tee. It was easy to assemble and works great! I put it together in less than an hour.
