I really did not think about having a book rack on the bike at the time I purchased it, however, that is a BIG item this bike is missing. I had to 'invent' another option to hold my tablet so I can watch Netflix while biking. The bike itself is very nice.
Great buy. You get more than what you pay for. The price is awesome for the quality of the bike and with free shipping from Overstock®, it makes it even more worth it. It's quiet, compact, and very easy to put together. Not much assemble to it really. If I can do it any girl can lol. I just use an HDMI cord from my mac book pro to my flat screen, YouTube® "indoor cycling workouts" and it's just like taking my cycling classes at the gym only I'm in the basement. I love it.
I was nervous to by an exercise bike online, without being able to check it out (sit on it, pedal on it, try it out) first. And was very nervous about assembling the bike. But I am very happy with my purchase (so far -- I just got it last week and have ridden it a couple of times). The bike is quiet and the tension is easily adjustable for an easier or a harder ride. I can watch TV or place my ipad on the handle bars and watch or work while I ride. The heighth of the bike (handle bars and seat) can be adjusted easily by completely unscrewing the adjustment knobs and then moving the seat up/down, forward/back, and the handlebars up/down. It would be nice if then adjustment knobs had springs so you didn't have to unsrew them all the way to make the adjustments, but I am happy with the price I paid for this bike, so I don't mind it too much. In other words, I wouldn't pay more just for that feature alone. I am 5'4" and ride the bike easily and there is still room to lower the seat for someone short than me. My boyfriend who is 6'1" also uses the bike. The bike has small wheels in the front so we can easily tip the bike and then roll it into another room when we are not using it. Yes the seat is hard, but all spin bikes have hard seats. You just have to condition yourself to it. Meaning, after a few rides your rear end should get used to it and won't be sore anymore. Assembly: The bike was very easy to put together. The only problem I had was getting the seat to stay on. Once I realized that the top screwdriver provided in assembly kit also doubled as a wrench, I was able to use the tool to tighten the seat, and now it stays in place just fine. I was looking for a good quality basic bike for a decent price, and that is exactly what I got. Very happy with my purchase and hope that we get some good use out of this bike and it doesn't become a clothes rack anytime soon!
