Bought this provide stretch for tendons and ligaments, which it does a good job of providing. Took a little while to get used to using as it requires good balance. Had some problems with getting the adjustment knob working right but all is well now. Would recommend to friends with good balance :)
This is a very good exercise machine. It is easy to use. It requires a small storage space compared to full size exercise bikes/machines. The machine can be used anywhere in the house without causing any disruption to ongoing activities in the same room. The ease of use is a major advantage because finding time for large machines requiring workout clothing is difficult. The user can peddle with their legs while sitting and doing other work/activies. Finally, the cost is minimal versus benefit received.
I received my order in a timely fashion. However, when I received the mini cycle, the clock and speedometer were broken. I tried to turn them on, but nothing worked. So I still use the mini cycle but I am unable to see how many calories I have burned or anything like that. Slightly disappointed.
This is a nice little cycle, but it needed a little tweaking to make it work right. It has a knob that adjusts tension, but it wasn't set properly and my husband had to take it apart and adjust it. Now it works quite well for what it is. It can't compare to the cycle I used in physical therapy, but it is a good piece of equipment for home use. I use a piece of rubber shelf lining underneath it to keep it from scooting around.
I purchased this MiniCycle for my husband to strengthen his legs. Unfortunately, it moves and shifts on floor even with a rug underneath and using with legs & arms.. The pedals don't move smoothly. DO NOT PURCHASE!!! It doesn't work well.
CAN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THIS MACHINE. THE THING I LIKE MOST IS THAT IT DON'T SLIP WHEN YOU ARE GOING AT A FAST PACE. SINCE USING THIS GREAT PRODUCT, MY LEGS ARE STRONGER AND I HAVE MORE STRENGH IN MY UPPER ARMS. I CAN LIFT THINGS BETTER, LIKE GROCERIES ETC. THANK YOU SO MUCH OVERSTOCK, MANLY FOR GIVING ME SUCH A WIDE CHOICE OF PRODUCTS TO CHOOSE FROM.
I use this for my arms as well as my legs, and it gives a nice work out when I'm just not feeling like getting out and walking and/or doing other workouts because I'm working so much. The price was also a contributing factor for me as I felt if I didn't use it too very often I wouldn't feel guilty.
This is a great machine. I use it under my desk. The only complaint I have is, it is kind of noisy. Don't get me wrong, it won't wake up the dead.....But let's just say, I couldn't share an office with someone and still be able to use it. :-)
The Mini Exercise Machine is more than what I had hoped for! But, some directions on how to operate the handly LED readout would be very much appreciated! After repeatedly pressing the red button, I finally figured out how to start the timer. When I tried to use the timer the second day, I could not figure out how to cancel out day one's time. Other than that, it's a great value, and just what I needed after double by-pass surgery.
The cycle fits perfectly under my desk. I find it very easy to use as Im working. The tension knob is slightly hard to use or I would have given it a 5 overall, I would have liked it to have more tension but I can still feel it in my legs. It does have a tendency to slide, but I braced the box it came in behind it and no more problem.
This mini cycle is great! It's compact, portable and it stays put really well once you learn how to apply your weight. I was a little leary from the other reviews that were negative. I got this for added cardio to my workout, and it is great. Makes multi-tasking very easy.
I have had this mini bike for about 2 months now, and i have to admit, it is a great asset to my diet. i really enjoy playing video games on my PC so i placed it under my computer desk. for each hour i spend playing my games and pedaling this bike i burn about 600-750 calories! if you want to burn some extra calories, strengthen your legs and overall health. I highly recommend this bike!
This item is great for the price. It does what I need it to do and it wasn't too expensive. Of course the cycling isn't totally smooth but, as I said before, it does what it needs to do and operates as good as I expected for what I paid.
