Rated 5 out of 5Â by Hawaiilover Good 'Investment'
Easy to put together, especially when your nice neighbor does it for you. Good instructions with pictures and parts together as much as possible. I dislike exercising but find myself getting on the bike and 'riding' while I watch TV a few times each day. I have a heart condition so have to be careful not to overdo so this works well. I pedal for a few minutes (adding a little time each day), several times a day. I can feel the burn but not become overtaxed. The only downsides are the pink color which doesn't go well with the reds in my house and it is a little tall so us older gals have to take it easy trying to get on and off the bike -- don't want to trip and fall!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Mg0912 The seat matters
Let me start by saying I love the bike, its cute, doesn't take up space, and was easy to put together. Its very well built, doesn't wobble or anything. Its also very quiet. My only reason for four stars is, is the seat is VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. Now I read the reviews before buying this bike and saw statements pointing this out, but I thought for such a great price I could deal with that... But now that I've been using it, I find it very difficult to deal with as I can't spend no more than 10 to 15 minutes on the bike before I have to give my backside a rest. With that said I am looking into finding another seat to replace the one it comes with. Other than that, the bike is great and I'd definitely recommend it but with warning about seat issue.

Being about 5' tall, the lowest setting is just right for me. Comfortable enough for excercise, while being in my third trimester of pregnancy. This is just right. The side handles are convenient if I get tired of leaning a little way forward, and the back has good support. I have a small apartment and a 3 year old, so being able to fold it up and put it to the side is awesome. Not crazy about the control screen that tells you calories and such. I can't seem to figure out how to work it right. That part I don't care though, cause I keep my eye on the clock, and just pay attention to what I can handle for the resistance setting. No regrets. Might browse for a bike seat cushion though, just for extra comfort. P.s. It really is quiet.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by JessyB Excellent value!
This piece of equipment was extremely easy to assemble (less than 30 minutes on my own) plus it was very affordable.. The resistance is conveniently placed by the handle bars so that you can change easily for warm up and cool down without having to get off the bike. The monitor is VERY easy to understand (I find some equipment monitors to be too touchy and complicated to work while I am exercising) and it takes two AA batteries which are included. I recently injured my back and suffer from a lifelong struggle with lower back problems so the back support provides that little extra bit of comfort while I am exercising. The bright pink doesn't exactly go with my dÃ©cor but what girl doesn't like pink? Overall this product is an excellent value and I would recommend it highly.
