Awesome Bike, I am addicted!
I wanted something that I could use as a way to get my exercise routine started. I needed something that would not cause me discomfort in the beginning, so I did not get discouraged. I have trouble with my knees, and sometimes the treadmill makes my legs hurt. This seat is padded and comfortable, it is wide, and gives you plenty of room, and the backrest is great. I am significantly overweight and had to have something low impact. I have been using the bike for 2 weeks, and am addicted. I started out at 2 miles at a time, three days after I started riding it, I rode 4 miles straight. A week after I began using it, I rode 8 miles at one time. On the 10th day of using the bike, I sat down watching a movie, and realized I had ridden 10 miles. I wanted to push for 11, then 12, and I ended up riding 15 miles in 1 hour and 46 minutes. For someone who is overweight, that is a major accomplishment. I would never have dreamed I could have ridden 5 miles in one day, much less 15 miles at one time. When riding a long length of time, I ride on a resistance of 3. I rode 4 miles on a resistance of 7, and had some discomfort the next day, which is to be expected. Just make sure not to push yourself too hard. I am sure I have done more than I probably should have, but have been so excited to finally find something that I can do and stick with. I have an electric treadmill that has all of the bells and whistles, and a home gym, but this is by far my machine of choice. It is a great deal now, we paid $20 more for ours, it went on sale the week after we ordered ours. It was easy to assemble also. This bike is so quiet, you would never know that you were on it. I watch T.V while riding all of the time. I am addicted to riding it. I love it so much despite having an exercise room, I have this sitting right in my living room. Every time I walk in to my living room when I would normally have sat down on the couch, I go straight to the bike. I have lost 7 pounds in 12 days, and gone down a pant size. I highly recommend this bike to anyone of any age who is searching for a method of exercise. You can make your workout as easy or hard as you want, by changing the resistance. Everything is placed so strategically, and easy. I love that my pulse is constantly displayed. After each workout, I know exactly how many calories I have burned, how far I have ridden, and how long I rode. It is encouraging! If you have any doubts, don't. Just buy it! :)

I am 65 years old with quite a bit of arthritis and was a little worried if I could handle this bike, but so far it is working out great. It was pretty straightforward in assembly. Just take your time and repeatedly check back with the instructions as you assemble. As I said, I have some arthritis so I put the adjustment knob on the lowest setting and it creates about the right resistance for me. I started out slow and have now worked up to riding 3 half hour sessions a day and am well pleased with bike so far. I did add a couple of foam seat pads on the seat and back and it is very comfortable. I was a little worried about how I would like the leaning back position while using the bike, but with the arthritis in my back it is a lot more comfortable than the upright position which would have no back support. Each person is different in their needs, but as for me I am totally satisfied with the bike and would highly recommend. On a scale of one to ten I would definitely give it a ten.

I read the other reviews before I bought this, and I have only had small problems. It was really easy to put together, and the wires were easy to figure out, everything works fine. I did, however, put the resistance knob on backwards. But I was pretty heavy when I started, and its a really easy workout. I live in an upstairs appartment, and I'll go at about half the resistance, for long periods of time into the night and early morning, and I haven't had a single noise complaint. The only thing that bothers me is that the front and back are two solid pieces held together in the middle but just two nuts and bolts, and I can't ride at some of the higher resistances because it will bow in the middle and I'm afraid of breaking it. It is an EXCELLENT beginners workout bike. I'm riding it right this instant posting this review on my phone. I've lost 30lbs in 3 months watching tv and playing video games.
This is a great value. easy to assemble, solid, completely silent. I chose this model over others because of the seat adjustment. Other units you have to adjust the length by adjusting the actual frame. I knew my wife would not appreciate that. This unit has an adjustment under the seat, very easy. Completely silent, you can watch tv while riding. I rode for 4 hours the very first day. I love this thing! It is actually addicting. Best of all.........no sore rear end like i would get riding an upright cycle. ( which is why I stopped riding, just couldn't stand the pain any longer) Set the computer on scan and you can see all your stats. Love the heart rate monitor. Did I mention I love this thing. Do not hesistate to purchase one of these!
This is a great machine. I am 75 and I had no trouble putting it together, it took me about 1 1/2 hours. I work out on it 5 days a week, I am diabetic and need to exercise 5 days a week and this helps me a lot.
