Absolutely brilliant! Built like a tank, weighs a ton and superb quality for this kind of price. Almost as good as the bikes you get in expensive gyms! Very good flywheel mechanism. Exactly what my partner and I needed. I used to cycle a lot but I'm too scared of the London traffic now so this machine is ideal. There are loads of programs but I just use manual and change the resistance up and down to suit. We use it every day and the missus loves it! One thing though - the instructions are a nightmare. They make an ikea manual look like a walk in the park! Once it's assembled mind you, it's great. Best thing we've bought in ages. Very happy.

Fantastic bike. Compact but solid. Took about 25 minutes to assemble with no issues. Works extremely well and is almost silent. Tension adjusts itself automatically and the built in programmes are varied. Takes a while to figure out the computer module but once you get the hang of it it takes seconds to set up for each user. Five stars all round and great value comapred to other manufacturers.

Very good value for money. Even more versatile than I expected. Suitable for beginners and advanced fitness seekers. Robust construction.

Excellent product.

Very happy with this bike and the excellent service from Sweatband. After trawling through lots of bike reviews the DKN AM-E kept surfacing as one of the top mid-range bikes and I can see why. The bike is easy to put together and is very sturdy. The functions all work perfectly and the handlebar pulse monitors are very accurate when compared to the wireless DKN chest strap I also purchased. The keypad control provides easy, uninterrupted transitions between settings and the bike is very quiet. If I had to pick faults I'd say the Manual could be better for beginners and offer better understanding of the pre-set programs ie, which is for weight loss, strength etc, and it would be nice to be able to stop the screen from changing so often to show the various readings as it becomes a bit of a distraction, but they are both very minor things that don't affect the operation of the bike. I'd recommend it highly in this price range.

Featurers - excelent, good range to select from and nice and simple to use 10 out of 10 Build quality - like a battleship - I think you would need to drop it from a ten story building to break it Value - I spent a long time doing my research - you could spend double the money and not get anything as good Similar products - don't waste your time looking Very stable, even when standing - The small wheels on the front makes it easy to move Overall - 10 out of 10

Second fitness bike I have purchased and although I have only had this one for a fortnight it is much more robust and quieter than the last one. Easy to assemble and use. Overall very impressed so far.

Overall I'm pleased with this product, a sturdy and well constructed piece of machinery that should provide me with what I was requiring. Putting the thing together might be somewhat challenging to those with limited practical skills, most especially because the instructions are markedly inadequate, and the manufacturer would do himself a favour by remedying this fault. On my machine the heart-rate sensor is not working correctly (I'm up to 180 in a few seconds!) and I am disappointed about this, but for my simple and basic requirements it is not a major problem. So, manufacturer/retailer - have another look at those assembly instructions and you won't have Granny tearing her hair out because she can't screw the pedal onto the left-hand thread!

Easy to assemble, once you realise that one of the pedal threads is left-handed! It seems well made and it works well. The operating instructions are rather sparse, but once one works out what to do it is easy to deal with the programming. It seems good value for what you get.

Definitely feels solid and good quality, good for our heights (5'9-6'1) and gives a good workout. Programs a bit confusing at first as used to a manual rather than digital control system. Good value considering quality. And can still hang ironing on it. All good.

Bike is well made. Easy to assemble. Impressed with build quality given the price. Only had limited use so far but I am sure it will be perfect for the task it was purchased for (Post op knee rehabilitation and general fitness).
