Really pleased. Bike is sturdy and feels well made. Very quiet in use and a range of programs which I think would suit most users. Seat is hard as others have said, but a gel cover has helped a great deal. Very good service from sweatband - bike arrived well packaged and on time. Overall, I think this is good value for money.

Quality good and value for the price paid. Easy to assemble and comfortable seat . Program workout really function good. Really pleased with purchase.

This is a great bike. Easy to put together and good quality. An all round great buy. Fast delivery would recommend to anyone.

Delighted with bike easy to assemble and easy to use. Different programs so you don't get bored

very easy to assemble and very easy to use. I am extremely pleased with this purchase. I use it most days, varying my exercise routine to suit my mood. Would recommend this to anyone

Harder to assemble than expected. A 2 person job at times

This bike is really quiet which is what I was after. I put together in about 30 mins with the assistance of my 8 year old daughter. Really pleased with it and good value for money

Well built, very quiet and smooth it helps you to perform the workout and stops you wasting energy working against the machine. Plenty of capacity in the machine for CV work (higher revs at lower power levels) whilst giving me enough headroom for some strength work. One person in approx 1 hour 40 min to assemble and is very stable. Did use a "proper" socket to tighten the nuts fully which got rid of the odd rattle. (The supplied socket would be adequate for many but it was a little difficult for me to hold when using higher levels of force) A very good buy - would get this model again without hesitation

Overall, we are very pleased with this exercise bike. The reason I haven't given it a top rating is due to the vastly inaccurate readings provided by the electronic display. Having used exercise bikes for over 10 years, I reckon that this one over estimates calorie burn by about 250%, which makes the information supplied effectively useless. Further, as others have commented, the readout continues to change between elapsed time and programme level, and also between watts and calories every 6 seconds - this is quite annoying. On the plus side - and there are many pluses - the bike is extremely quiet, fairly easy for two people to assemble, has a good range of exercise programmes, and has 32 difficulty levels - I'm fairly fit, and level 28 seems to be my comfortable maximum ... level 32 is hard work. Less than level 22 is easy for me. Over all, for the price, this is a very good exercise bike. If the electronic readout was better, then it would be excellent.

Brilliant product. It has exceeded our expectations. I would strongly recommend it. It offers different programmes and intensities of workout. Vert sturdy and stable. Very pleased with It.

Very good I love it

A friend had one. She had done all the research and was pleased with it. So bought on her recommendation. Am absolutely delighted with mine. Just wish I'd sent my old one to the tip sooner!

A good solid machine, perfectly adequate for my needs and with enough feedback to keep me motivated. The graphics on the control screen look a bit dated now but i guess that's reflected in the price.

This is the best exercise bike you're going to find at this price point, and you get a lot out of it. It's well made, sturdy, solid, comfortable, and sports a good set of programmes that you can choose in the monitor. It's very silent and doesn't move a bit while you use it. It isn't foldable, but you can move it around thanks to the wheels on one end. Using it is as easy as hopping on it and start pedalling. You can easily move and fix the seat and handles distance and inclination. It comes in pieces, but it's easy to assemble. I am really pleased with it.
