I did extensive research and investigation into different recumbent exercise bicycles before deciding on this one. This bike really does have all the bells and whistles for a very affordable price. You can turn the tension up and unless you are a pro biker the difference is very noticeable. It’s very quiet no louder than air coming through my vents. I can ride it while family watches TV in the same room. My only complaint with the bicycle is the horrible shade of pink and the cheap pink counter. I suppose you could replace the counter. I like pink but this shade is blinding. Seat is comfortable but is more comfortable with extra padding. Since I didn’t like the pink case, I taped off the area and spray painted it black. A very cheap and easy fix. If you are stronger than me you may be able to detach the pedals and by loosening a few screws the case will completely come off and you could take that and spray paint it for an even nicer looking finish. I’m very pleased with his bike and would recommend it. I use reviews when making purchases. And like to pass it forward, so please give me a like for my review.
Good For The Price

It’s a pretty decent bike, considering the price. Assembly was easy. I didn’t even have to read the directions, just briefly look at the pictures. Took like 30 minutes. The locknuts that fasten under the seat are incredibly difficult to screw onto the screw, my seats kinda wobbly to get onto because of that, but once I’m seated its fine. If you’re shorter than 5’5″, don’t get this bike. I’m 5’5″ and at the lowest length, my legs are just barely long enough to comfortably get at the pedals. I also don’t recommend this for anyone over a size 12. Despite the 220 weight limit, I doubt anyone with a booty circumference over 43″ is going to fit comfortably in the seat. Mine is 42″ and my legs brush against the handles on the sides of the seat. Any more and it’d be uncomofrtable. The calorie counter is also a complete joke, I think it assumes you’re 120lbs with no muscle. It doesn’t calculate your weight or heartrate- use a Fitbit to calculate your calories instead. Basically, this bike seems to be optimized for tall thin women, but it still works for the average girl. The bike is great if you live in an apartment. Its super light (45lbs,) and it folds up and can be shoved in a closet.
Still pedalin’ six months later

I am an exerciser. Like, a “get up and at ’em at 4am” kind of exerciser. Because people can get the wrong idea if I’m out walking our road that early (not to mention the fact that people drive like idiots around here, and dodging speeding cars isn’t the kind of exercise I’m looking for), I bought this little pink exercise bike back in February 2016. Six months later, I can’t imagine how I lived without it. It comes in pieces in a box weighing 30-or-so pounds, but don’t let that scare you. I was able to assemble it with the included tools in about 35-40 minutes, and I only said a bad word once or twice during the whole process. Once you’re done with that, it’s ready to go. It’s quiet, so I’ve never had any issue with waking the other members of my household at the ungodly hour at which I use it. In six months time, I haven’t had any issue with any of the bolts/nuts/screws walking loose, although I do a weekly check to make sure that everything is still holding where it should be. That’s saying a lot for this bike, since it’s been used almost every single day since it arrived. Granted, it’s not super-duper gym quality, but it’s still pretty darn good.
Perfect product for beginner/basic use

perfect for the price and convenience. I’m 5’4″ and am comfortable with the seat on the lowest level (might not be great for anyone shorter than me) and my husband was comfortable on this bike at 5’11” great for small spaces and SUPER quiet! Good resistance levels, great for anyone just looking to keep their legs moving in the winter!

Bought this mid-August and really love it. The husband put it together fast (all the tools you need are included) and even he said it is made of better quality than he expected for the price paid. I use it every day and it is very lightweight and easy to roll from room to room & when folded up takes up minimal space. I am 5’6 and it fits me perfectly. I read the reviews beforehand, so knew the seat was uncomfortable, so I ordered the Schwin gel seat that Amazon recommended to go with it and while it does fit, it really made no difference comfortwise. So I also added a beach towel which makes it more bearable. I read somewhere that if you use a stationary bike everyday, within a few weeks, your butt becomes accustomed to the seat and it won’t hurt as much. It also has a monitor that keeps track of time, calories and how far you ride. I would have given this 5 stars but almost from day 1, the left peddle made a weird thump noise that you kind of feel. I just pray it doesn’t get worse. I will update this review if the bike falls apart or if that little thumping sound gets worse. Right now, I’m pretty pleased with it. Edited 12/29/16 – Just came back to change my rating to 5 stars from 4.
Inseam is key to comfort.

I am writing this AS I AM RIDING THIS BIKE. And so far, so good. I purchased this a while ago, and as some things happen with health and fitness when you’re trying to lose weight you procrastinate and maybe let it sit too long. Well, about a week ago I said NO MORE. I had a baby last year and ate like crap for the following year, gaining 10 more lbs on top of the 15 I gained from the pregnancy, giving myself a whopping 25 lbs of extra weight. So having lost 5-7 lbs from dieting alone for 2 weeks, I hopped on this bike 3 days ago at 158 lbs and 5’5″. I have a 38″ inseam and that means of my 5’5″ I have pretty long legs and a short torso. At the bike’s lowest seat height I am very uncomfortable and my knees are coming up way too high into an acute angle. At the second to lowest seat height is where I hit my stride and my legs don’t go lower than a 90 degree angle, perfect for riding. Sometimes if I want to be less harsh on my knees, I will go up one more notch in height, but this is when I start having discomfort/issues with the bike seat. It’s not any less uncomfortable than my regular bike seat at that comfortable notch, but it’s very uncomfortable when I go any higher.
I love this!

Don’t waste your money on something more expensive unless you are too big for this one. I am 5’4″, with a 30″ inseam, and it fits me just fine. I have it on the second from top rung for the seat. It folds up pretty small too so I can leave it in the living room pushed up to the wall. It is very steady and sturdy even when I pedal like a maniac. The handlebars are at a great angle for a workspace. I put a light wood board that is 1 1/2 feet by 2 feet on them and can put my laptop and phone on the board while I pedal away. My housemate is 6′ 1″ and about 220 lbs and it is too small for him to really peddle fast and feel stable with his weight since it is a 220 lbs capacity. He spent twice as much on his magnetic exercise bike but had to because of his size. The backrest is a godsend for me as are the handles attached to the seat. It has helped my back not get stiff and sore from peddling. I will advise you to get a gel seat cover for it. My butt is fully padded and the seat it comes with is too hard to sit on for more than 10 minutes without a seat cover. I really recommend this bike if you want to get some exercise at home instead of going to a gym.
