A good machine with plenty of options on the scree of

Well built, fairly comfortable (up to about an hour) and a good range of programmes. Smooth action and very quiet.

Great product, great price, great service. I am delighted with my experience of both Sweatband and the DKN-AM Exercise Bike. Delivery was quick and the goods well packaged. Unpacking the parts, I was surprised at their quality - so much better than I expected. Assembly was relatively straightforward for a 75 y.o. due to a well laid out manual and packed parts and dedicated tools. The one problem I had in understanding the assembly was quickly resolved within minutes through a telephone call. Once together, the machine looked good and its compactness is perfect for a small bedroom. In use, it is quiet, vibration free, comfortable, and a pleasure to use. I can already feel the benefit to my tired old legs and sense of well-being - although I regularly swim and walk, it is not enough to maintain leg muscle. It will also be very useful at times when the weather makes it difficult to go out. A final point: I put off buying this machine for several months because I felt it to be too cheap - how wrong I was!

Brilliant bike, feels like it should cost a lot more money. Company Sweatband very efficient and remarkably speedy with delivery. Cannot find any negatives.

The resistance levels are too low. For example, on programme 5, for 10 Km, I have to start on level 16 (maximum) to get a reasonable workout. This takes me about 21 minutes, and I'm 72 years old - this machine would definitely not suit a younger, fitter man. This is a replacement AM-E machine, the previous one was exactly the same. It's also rather clunky, as though the flywheel bearings are loose.

Really solid and straightforward bike with good range of programs

I bought my DKN AM-E after much research and reading positive reviews. I wasn’t disappointed. It is perfect for my exercise. My only gripe is the calorie counter, which over estimates. That said for the money it is excellent. Well made and with good resistance levels. I am very satisfied with my purchase and would recommend this exercise bike.

It’s quiet, smooth with lots of options for programming or free cycling, adjustable height and seat. Easy to put together too! Great quality product all round.

Excellent bike, our second, the first is still performing very well after several years regular use. Difficult to fault , good monitor wide range of resistance very quiet and smooth. We dont use the programmes but the hand book seemed rather unhelpful if you wanted these. Pulse function on monitor works well with the polar strap.

Generally pretty good, and good value for money, but it does creak a bit when pedalling and takes a long time to change resistance setting

Great bike for building up stamina. Well made and easily assembled.

Arrived on time. Put it together in around 30 minutes. It's great. Solid, quiet and even better than I expected. A tiny gripe is the calorie counter over estimates by about double and the pulse monitor is a bit hit and miss but for the money I would absolutely recommend this fantastic exercise bike.

Amazing piece of kit. Read all the reviews and thought I might as well give it a go and I wasn't disappointed. Such a good price for such good quality. In the short time I've had it my fitness has improved ten fold and the fitter I get the more I can test this bike's capabilities. Suitable for leisure or for a real challenge without any wobbling or instability and without being noisy (in fact it's pretty much silent unless changing resistances). Only downside is the calorie counter, which, like many had pointed out, does overestimate quite a bit and the constant switching between readings on the screen has annoyed be to the point of sometimes having to cover it up. The only other improvement would be adding a lip to the monitor so its able to hold something e.g. book, ipod etc. LOVE my bike though and thoroughly pleased with all aspects of ordering/delivery/ease of build :)
