Okay, tried out multiple different cross trainers and bikes alongside rowing machines and multi-gyms and bought this in January but pointless reviewing until given a decent trial so here goes. My advice is go to your local gym, try out a bunch of machines and make your own mind up. That said; I’m what I thought was a pretty fit 51 year old geezer but motivation was that, out of nowhere but for genetics, had a heart attack in December. Prior to that I was a semi pro rugby player up to my late 20’s in the days when amateur meant as pro as you could get but went for professional career over short term sports career gain but I think I know what I’m talking about. This is a pretty decent machine and the pre-set but flexible workouts can give you a lot to work with and think about. I’ve worked with it for 2 months now and plus points are it’s exceptionally quiet, has programmable flexibility (a few of the peak/ trough programme are absolutely excellent for speed burns). Look, what can I tell you, it’s really easy to put together, really well built and you could spend loads more on a similar product or cross trainer (or worse, a recumbent waste of time) but this is the best value, day to day, work machine I’ve tried and so bought. Negatives are that calorie counter is a bit of waste of time and, contrary to the opinion of others, the handlebar heart rate monitor is nowhere close to accurate. As a wee side note I also got the DKN R-400 rowing machine. Not because I’m a DKN fanatic but because I tried out units near where I live and converted my cave next to the kids bedrooms so need quiet kit and this stuff is virtually silent.

Easy to use, has memory function so that both my wife and myself can have our own profiles set up and we don't have to keep re entering data before we can start using it. There are a variety of 'programs' that you can use, my preferred one is P5 which is a steady hill climb with a decent cool down afterwards. The bike itself is sturdy and was easy to assemble. Overall no complaints, very happy with the exercise bike and am hoping it will help improve my state of health.

Well made bike with good resistance and programmes for user.

Very well made - excellent value for money.

Good: > hmmmm.... will let you know when I find any. Bad: > Seat is not comfortable. > Increasing the level/hardness often does nothing. > Calorie counter is inaccurate. > Often during workout, every paddle rotation produces an annoying click kind of sound as if something is loose. > There are bikes out in the market which perform much better and are half the price of this one.

Great bike, Easy to put together, programs and resistance levels are adequate for my needs. Reliable so far and I find saddle quite comfy

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.
