I just received this, only took 2 days to ship, and figured I'd try to assemble it myself. I am a 66yr old woman but very handy with tools and such. First of all, it was well packed and arrived in no time. I took my time and read through the instructions before any assembly. It was actually a lot easier than I had anticipated. For me, the tool included is pretty useless, hard on the hands, I just replaced it with my own, easier to use tools, (wrench and phillips screwdriver).
Other than that, it went really well. Couldn't get the straps on the pedals but I'll get someone to do it for me, not quite enough strength haha. The bike is very quiet and as you can see in the pic, it doesn't take up much room really. Well contsructed and no missing parts. If anyone is wondering, I'm 5' tall, just, and have no problem using this machine. I actually had the seat up as far as it would go and had to back it off a notch or two. I'll update after I've used it for a while and let you know how it is holding up, Good deal for the price point.
- Functional; you'll get a decent workout
- Straightforward build
- Bluetooth connection fine
- Quiet flywheel and brake
- Comfortable Seat
- Uncomfortable fit however adjusted due to the angles of the handlebars; it's like a persistent stress position
- Expensive for what it is
Bought for my father who has a right sided weakness after a stroke and could do with an optional footplate pedal to stop it falling off. We have to strap it on at the moment. Very quite to use and operate apart from not being able to get it in miles not kilometers. On the whole very pleased.
I never owned a recumbant bike before and injured my knee. Since I was not able to walk or use my treadmill, I still wanted to exercise and this bike is fabulous. It does what it says on the tin. What I love about this bike is the seat and back rest are very comfortable. The seat adjusts front to back not vertically. The bike is SUPER QUIET. So quiet you can watch tv and not hear the bike at all. For me the only features I was looking for were pulse rate, miles driven, time lapsed, and calories.
Very Good value for money.easy to assemble, very easy to use. Space to attach my tablet so I can entertain myself whilst exercising.
