I was excited to purchase this for my mother who will soon undergo her second knee replacement surgery. She already has an exercise bike, but instead of climbing on the bike after the surgery, I thought this would a more convenient and comfortable option for her. Unfortunately, the tension knob (which looks like it was soldered on crooked) is soooo hard to tighten, which means there's not enough tension. If a 75 yo woman says there's not enough tension, you know there's something wrong. Also, the plastic feet are NOT rubber and it does slip. So, this is going to be returned and we'll look for something a little better quality.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by JU7722 This product has been a great help to me. I had a total knee replacement and it has greatly reduced the stiffness. Even after 3 months since the surgery I still use it two or three times daily. I would not recommend it for workout equipment however it is great for keeping your knee moving and loose. I sometimes will get up during the night due to pain and do 5 To 10 minutes and be able to fall back to sleep from the relief it gave me. I am so glad I bought this.

I bought this as an additional exercise option. I either ride my hybrid bike or walk the local track, daily, in the mornings. When the weather is bad, I have a stepper. As you can see, I do believe in exercising. (FYI-- I am 63). But I found myself needing to do something in the evenings to counteract my dinner meal. I was falling asleep too quickly, once I set down. I looked for this type of machine and am very happy, thus far, that I chose this one! It is very well made and very minimal installation: attaching two knobs and the monitor. I sit in a straight chair and just cycle. You can adjust the tension to your liking and read or watch tv, etc. No stress on your joints and you go as long as you want (I do about 30 min.) I LOVE IT! ONE TIP: I have wood floors, so it would slide somewhat, but I solved that by going to Wal Mart's hardware dept and purchasing "Gripper Pads"-- 2 1/2", 4 pieces for $3.94 (blue package) and my problem was solved! (Attach the gripper pad to the Cycle, center it.) NO MORE SLIDING!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by jehappy nice design but no challenge
the folding bike had a nice compact design, was easy to use, but was not able to change resistance . would be good for someone who could not handle a lot of strength training. Good to keep someone moving but would not build muscles.
