Our Using Experience

Total construction time was under an hour, roughly 30-40 minutes. Compared to other bikes we've owned, that isn't a very long amount of time for basic construction. Seat moves easily, and adjustments are a simple thing. Solid materials used in construction. Looks beautiful – orange accent makes the body look very chic. Price came out to a little under $400 for us, but the bike is definitely worth every penny.

Pros

  • Price is mid-range, but you get a lot of bang for your buck. This machine has not broken or worn out during our use, and we don't see it breaking at all in the near (or distant) future.
  • Adjusting the fit for your body is simple, and allows you to exercise in comfort.
  • Very little noise from the bike, so you can easily watch TV, read a book, or listen to music while exercising.
  • Looks beautiful – not ashamed to show it off to friends.

Cons

  • Lacks more advanced computer features, such as saving routines and/or programs and adjusting tension.
  • Some people may not be accustomed to manually adjusting tension for their bike, so this model comes with a bit of a learning curve.
