I am very impressed with this product. I use a manual wheelchair and have been looking for a hand cycle to get some indoor cardio exercise. I did quite a bit of research on other hand cycles before I settled on this one, and I'm very happy with my decision. I have tendonitis in both shoulders and have been doing physical therapy to strengthen my upper body. The mini cycle is a great product and is very easy to use. I love the tension control and am anxious for my shoulders to be back to normal so I can increase the tension and add time to my workout. I have had this product for about a month. I took it on vacation with me over the holidays and take it with me when I'm gone for the weekend. It's well built and I look forward to many years of use!
Sturdy steel --,already assembled--- does not slide around. The reason for the "good" rating and not the "Excellent" rating was the Digital display did not work. I had to replace the battery at $X.XX. With the new battery it worked fine. You must remember to not touch the metal that is attached to the pedals as it becomes very hot probably . It's great to use while watching TV when you can't get out due to the weather
I sold an old rowing machine some time ago and now wish I hadn't. This one is made more cheaply and isn't designed as well. The footrests don't swing down far enough as you slide back; you have to pull out a rod under them to get full motion. The rowing seat isn't contoured, and it's easy to slide out of position. The main rail is a steel box channel; most others I've seen are an aluminum extrusion...this just seems cheap. Assembly was required and took about 45 minutes. Instructions were OK. The small parts pack was well labeled. Otherwise, after a few weeks of intermittent use, it works as expected.
I received my vertical climber and started putting it. Together when I noticed the large curve support bottom would not go on straight and that was because the holes were severely uneven one was up one was down instead of sending it back for one piece my husband drilled the hole in properly other than that this is a pretty good machine
