Exercising After Knee Surgery
I had knee surgery. I cannot go everyday to therapy. I decided to buy this cycle which is better than being on a bike. I use it 3 times a day for 30 mins and it works. The monitor is great just to know the time while being used but it cannot be set for the time you want and turn off on its own. You have to make sure to turn off the monitor after every use, if not, it stays on. And, it fits great under my bed. Do not use a chair with wheels like I have in the picture. Use a regular chair. This cycle is only good for legs and arms physical therapy.
This peddler is very sturdy, i really recommend it, the only reason i didn't gave it 5 stars its because its very noisy some times, specially if you peddle with the knob tightened up for more resistance power, the problem is that it sounds like a tortilleria, the place where they make "tortillas" you know? for tacos? - The resistance its very good, and very easy to adjust. - It sits and stays very stable on carpet. I haven't tried on another surface. - Very easy to assemble! really! it just takes like 5 minutes, no tools necessary.
Great for use at work
I bought this for under my desk at work. It was very easy to put together, it's very easy to use. I love it! The only warning that when you are done using it, don't touch near the pedals because the metal does get hot.
Jury is still out
Do I like the item? Yes. Do I enjoy using the item? No. I have to end up ordering a high enough chair to making using this item effective and not getting my knees shoved up my gut Everytime I go to rotate. All chairs in my home are too low to make using this item effective.
Decent exercise for the sedentary or deskbound
I love how I can easily store this away under my desk at work. It's perfect for those times when I'm stuck in a boring teleconference, which seems to be happening a lot lately. Might as well get in some exercise! The item is well-made, if I had to complain about something it's that the pedal motion is a bit jerky. Don't expect the same smooth action as an exercise bike costing 10-20x more. Also, I can't get the resistance high enough for my liking, but I have very strong legs and this is a moot point for the elderly or those in rehabilitation. Mine doesn't slide around on our short-pile office carpeting, I've been pedaling for half an hour and it hasn't budged. I don't regret this purchase and would recommend it to any cubicle dweller chained to his or her desk. PS: I also bought one for my87-year old dad, he loves it and uses it while watching TV, looking out the window, or just daydreaming. Without this device, he'd get NO exercise at all since he can't walk very far.
