Just to be clear about the capacity
Here’s a photo of the label on the front support
Compact, stable, and super quiet. I live in an upstairs apartment and have no worries about the bike disturbing my neighbors.The large seat is about as comfortable as any bike seat is going to be on my old-lady rear. Also, I’m barely 5′ 2″, with short legs, and it fits well. The large pedals are comfortable, but I prefer to wear my walking shoes when pedaling and the shoes even allow me to raise the seat above the lowest setting. Assembled it by myself in about 20 minutes; just read the instructions and follow step-by-step.
Great for tall people
I went with this new model because it says it fits people up to 6’5″. I am 6’4″ and I don’t have this set up anywhere near the highest seat setting. I can easily imagine this fitting someone well up to 6’8″, if not taller. It is extremely easy to assemble, quiet, comfortable and all features perform great.
My only con is a small cosmetic defect; the plastic in front is cracked(as pictured).
Built like a tank, but the display might be too bare bones for some
As a prelude, I’m 6’4 and 310, and a mechanical engineer. The bike frame and assembly points are built like a tank. Assembly wasn’t bad, but getting the cable for the resistance adjuster attached when putting on the handlebars wasn’t well described nor easy. The seat is flat and hard, which I like, but others might prefer something else. The attachment for the seat isn’t easily modifiable for any other cushion you might choose. The one thing I don’t like is the information display. You can choose from distance, time, speed, odometer (cumulative, not reset), heart rate monitor, and scan (where it skips through all of these sequentially). I know this is a bare-bones system, but it would be nice to be able to display more than one metric at a time, and switching between them requires punching a large, loud, clunky button that is virtually guaranteed to wear out long before the rest of the bike if you want to look at more than one data stream. For now, I’m using the pulse monitor and have my phone show me a timer. It’s also nice that, if the electronics all eventually die, the bike keeps working – the magnetic clutch system is all mechanical. It would also have been infinitely preferable if the resistance levels on the adjusting knob were not dark blue on a black background – even in good light they are very hard to read.
sturdy, beginner, basic excercise bike
I have used this bike for a month and so far I am very pleased with it. I already have a commercial-like elliptical, so I wanted an affordable yet sturdy bike. I am 5 foot 4 inches and 225 lbs. I have had no issues getting on the bike or riding it. The weight capacity label on my bike did indicate up to 400 lbs and it does seem heavy duty and durable. The large seat cushion is also comfortable and easy to adjust. [See note at bottom regarding seat cushion] The oversized pedals are towards the front and can be used with regular shoes (unlike spinning bikes). It hardly makes any noise at all; I ride it while watching TV and it doesn’t bother others in the same room.
This bike is a thing of beauty. The steel frame construction is thicker than I had imagined. When you sit on the extra wide, comfortable seat, you know you are astride a sturdy, dependable bike. I bought another folding bike for less than half the cost of this bike. The difference is is well worth the extra money, and a bargain at its price. I looks, feels, and rides like commercial quality.
