Frontier Nimbus Exercise Bike
on 20 January 2013
I bought one of these and it's been a very bad experience. My slackness admittedly made it worse. After only a few months the digital control panel and features stopped working. There is no power and nothing comes up on the display. I have tried a different adaptor with the same output and it made no difference. My wife still uses it occasionally but it's no use to me. I want the controls and settings - without them, and set to a light pedal tension, it's as useless to me as a chocolate teapot.
Unfortunately I didn't get round to doing anything about it. This is only partly my fault, and I'm really surprised to not find anyone with the same experience. It's not in my order list although I did buy it in 2011 from Amazon. Where's it gone? And who are Frontier? I can remember being pulled in by the "German quality" bull. But how do you get in touch with them - where are they based? The instruction manual is really cheap - suspiciously so - with no corporate branding or contact details. Have they gone bust?
If anyone representing "Frontier" reads this, and the error sounds familiar - please do post some thoughts. It was a bad purchase and I've not been very sharp since, but it's an expensive and bulky thing to have to just get rid of without a little bit of effort.
