I've had this exercise bike for a couple of months now, so it has had time to settle in, if you know what I mean. I am quite pleased with it, and it gives my legs and lungs a good workout. That is it's function, so full marks for that.
I am 6ft 2ins and it accommodates me comfortably. The saddle is quite good and I have not suffered any bum bruises. The cycling action is pleasantly smooth, with only a hint of any resistance hot spots. I unpacked and assembled it myself, unaided by anything other than determination.
I was annoyed by the marketing hype on Amazon regarding the rrp discount, please don't be fooled by that. I reckon it is just about worth £150 ish - it is quite good, but not top quality. For example: the wheel is adorned with colourful self adhesive decoration in the style of bike spokes. The stickers were creased where they had not been put on straight; also, the brake pads that create the resistance to the flywheel were (and still are) misaligned. This problem causes a rapid wearing down of the pads, and in my instance, an unbearable whining noise. My call to We R Sports resulted in the nice lady sending me a new set of pads, alongside the verbal advice to spray the brakes with some WD40. Hmmm. She was sweet though and I decided not to pursue the matter any further. The pads are still out of line, but are quiet now. This is what I mean about the equipment being functional but not top class.
The machine is heavy but easy to move when pivoted onto it's front castors. I am quite pleased with it but I don't have much to compare it with except years ago at the local gym, and any favourable comparison with professional equipment is unwarranted.
I hope this helps!
