We got this about 1 month ago and have been using it everyday. We had a Tony LIttle Gazelle that was not hard enough (there was no tension) and it moved you in an awkward way that make your knees feel very tight.My husband is a very fit and works out every day between the gym and home. I'm more moderate and the bike is great for both of us.It came quickly and in perfect shape. We thought there were a lot of missing screws/bolts at first, but turned out they were already screwed in where they would go, so you had to unscrew them, put the bike together, then screw them back in. - just a note in case you run over town looking for screws like we did only to find them on the bike.
Overall, a good buy. I am not the best at putting things together and have nearly lost my mind putting together things from IKEA. When I saw this box, I got afraid, but, honestly, it was not that bad. It took me about an hour and only one glass of wine to assemble. The hardest part was getting screws that had been put into the seat for shipping out to re-screw the seat in place--some of the surface finishing stuff had sort of glued them in place. Once it is together, it provides a good quality price for the bike--easily as good as some I find in the gym and this is all mine so if it is sweaty, I know who to blame. Pre-programmed rides (6) are OK and the readouts provide pulse, speed, calories, etc. at regular intervals so you know how you are doing.

I bought this product because I had an earlier model that I finally wore out. The previous model lasted about 10 years. I'll be extremely happy if this machine lasts that long. It's perfect for my needs. It's small and maneuverable. I can pull it in and out of my family room easily. It could be difficult for a small person to handle it. I'm 5'11" and 180 lbs. The electronics could use some updating, but for the price it's fine. It's a great product and I will stick with them for years to come.

This item was a gift for a family member. Purchase price was lower than any other retailer. Shipping was a little slow... but for $2.95 (the price I paid for shipping), I could definitely live with that! After item arrived and as I was unpacking the box, I noticed a plastic part (adjuster for rear stabilizer bar) was badly broken and unusable. I believe that it had been packaged too close to the side of the box and although no damage was noted on the outside, it must have been hit just right in order to have been broken the way it was. I finished assembling the bike anyway as the broken part was not a critical part. Everything went together perfectly and although there were directions that came with it, I did not find it necessary to use them. Everything was pretty much self-explanatory! After assembly, I located the parts list that came with the bike and found out the name of the broken piece. I emailed Overstock.com and explained what had happened and what it would take to correct the condition. I received a reply almost instantly which stated that their parts department would be contacting me shortly. The next day I received an email from the parts department stating that they had located the part and that it would be shipped directly to me in short order. I received the correct part a few days later and installed it. I believe that this machine will perform as described and that it will get a lot of use. It is designed well and is comfortable to use. I was extremely pleased with how fast a replacement part was shipped out to me. As of this writing the machine is functioning fine!

I bought this based upon the value for the money. It is sturdy, with no wobbling even with fast peddling. I've heard some complaints about the seat being uncomfortable but so far after 15 minutes, its still ok. It was easily assembled by my husband in less than 45 minutes. On Amazon.com there were alot of complaints about missing or broken parts. We experienced none of that. The box arrived intact as well as the entire contents. The screen is easy to program and read and the pedals are comfortable with a smooth motion. I can't complain at all. So far, so good! Appears to be a great value for a basic recumbent exercise bike!

My first purchase from Overstock. Very happy with the experience. Bike is perfect for me. Box had slight damage but everything inside was intact. Assembled in about 1.5 hours. Very quiet and that is important to me. Enjoy the different programs and intensity. I am well satisfied with this product.

What is the longest stride length on this bike? I see is good for short - what about tall?laural82414 on Oct 10, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us laural82414. I do not have a stride length but was told that the bike can be used by a person five foot to up to six four. My source is 5 foot 2 and uses the bike. I hope this is helpful. overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 17, 2013

Hello pecheur3000, This exercise bike has an adjustable, padded, molded seat with seatback keeping you in the correct position which looks like a slight lean back. Thank you for shopping with us.

It has a slight lean back, but it is not adjustable. On a longer ride, I find it not so comfortable and have to put a pillow back thee making even less of an angle. If you want more than about 30 degrees lean back, you are out of luck.lillybeth99 on Jul 12, 2013
Even an adjustable bike may not "fit" a short person. Will this bike be of use to someone 5 ft tall?auntmy on Jan 4, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This item does not have a height requirement because it can adjust its length to the rider.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 15, 2012
Pretty short--I would say about 5' 2" or more. I am not sure about 5'. My issue is that the pre-drilled holes for adjusting are over 2" apart. I really need one in between to get proper extension, but, again, this is a good bike for the price.lillybeth99 on Jul 12, 2013
