Great Buy With One Delievery Hitch.
16 November 2017
Being a tall man, 6ft3, and having persistent back, ankle and knee issues I needed a way to do some moderate cardio work without hurting myself. I looked around on the net and couldn't find a recumbent bike to fit my height, weight and also my price range!
Then I came across this!
It fits my height and weight very well and is comfortable!
The computer is very easy to use, though I don't believe the computer reflects the actual calories burned as different people with different weights and heights etc burn calories at different rates. So I'd advise you write down how long you've exercised and then find a website on-line to put your time exercising along with how fast you were going (it displays this on the computer when you peddle) weight, age etc into it to workout how much you've done, assuming you are logging calories burned.
The dial to control resistance levels is easy to use. It may only have a 4kg but it's good enough for me to do moderate cardio. If you need more of a challenge I'd advise you buy elsewhere.
I don't really use the Pulse Grips monitor much so I'm not sure how accurate it is.
Assembly was a bit fiddly by myself. I'd advise 2 people do it.
Not very big and doesn't take up much space. It's also virtually silent! I live in a block of flats with people below me and it makes next to no noise when I use it.
My only problem was with the delivery. On the day I should have received the bike I got an e-mail from Amazon saying there was an issue. I rang them and they assured me it would be there the following day, it was at the depot and would be delivered. I waited another day and still no delivery. I looked in my Amazon account and it said I needed to ring the carrier. Turns out I needed to set a date for delivery, the people at Amazon never told me this even when I rang up. This pushed my delivery date later.
Other than the delivery mishap I highly recommend this bike!
