The bike is very solid.. doesn't feel flimsy at all. We also find it suits medium to tall people well (at 5'8" and 6', we use saddle height setting 3). Started exercising on a beginner level 2.5 months ago, and still very pleased with the machine. Find I actually like hopping on for 30-45 minutes, almost every evening... and that's saying something. ;)
It's not only whisper quiet, but the various programs and resistences are quick to set and keep things interesting. There seems to be plenty of room for all fitness levels.. we're still not exceeding resistence 7 (out of 16). 16 is murderous for an unfit person (can barely move the pedals). I also appreciate the built in hand pulse meter as ear clips just feel weird. The saddle is soft and wide.. very comfortable.
If I was to find something missing about this bike it's a cup/bottle holder.
The only part of the bike one cannot adjust is the distance of the handlebars from the pedals. The handlebars are quite far away, more so than you'd get on an ordinary bike as this one has to accommodate the largest of users. It's not uncomfortable, just not ideal. Also as one doesn't have to steer on an exercise bike (who'd have thought, eh?) using the handle bars isn't always necessary.
The display and settings are very good and the resistance settings at the highest level would give a good workout to even an Olympic cyclist, by no means easy! I wouldn't have thought so before I bought the bike, but the heart-rate monitor is indispensable. It works accurately (after you give it 15 seconds to count your pulse) and will prevent you from over-working your heart, which is my case is the muscle I'm truly looking to get fit.
The convenience of being able to exercise without having to rely on the weather, the danger of exercising in a busy city, or even having to get properly dressed is a huge bonus to me. The effortless way I can gauge my progress and performance is highly motivational too. I can't really imagine you'd get much more by spending 2 or 3 times this bike's price on another make or model.
The readings presented by the exercise bike may well be due to some fault peculiar to my device. It could well be a personal issue with my circulation. That said, I would urge any users, to double check their own pulse manually, or by using a dedicated heart rate monitor.
I intend to keep using this exercise bike but will only use it with the safeguard of a heart rate monitor.
Can't think of anything that is missing.
The settings are simple to use, and there is enough variety for most users. The build quality looks and feels solid, and the machine itself is an attractive piece of apparatus.
The seat is pretty hard, but it is obviously built to last, so not a real complaint. Everything is adjustable, and the vast majority of people should find no problem with height/reach.
