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.
perfect for me, and great price!
I'm 5'6" and have "mobility issues" so I'm not training for a marathon, but this little peddler is perfect to supplement the little walking I can do, to keep my legs from "freezing" up. My desk is up against the wall, facing out a big window. I put a big book between the peddler and the wall it to keep it from moving, and I can sit normally at my desk and use it intermittently all day long, whenever I feel that I've been sitting too long. Looking out the window also gives my eyes a break from near focus. I have Laminate floors with no rug, and my chair is an office chair on wheels. I don't use the foot straps at all, just use the other side - no problem. I hold on to the edge of my desk, so the chair doesn't move; that way I need no additional furniture and the peddler doesn't have to be put away; it's always right there, ready to go, but somewhat concealed. You can see the book I put behind it in the picture, and that there's plenty of room for my knees to go all the way up.
