This is an easy to use bike with a good number of programs to keep you motivated and push you as much as you would like. My main activity is running, so it is excellent for keeping training going when it is difficult to get outside. The only other point people mention is the seat. Two of used it and both found it comfortable and we are medium sized person who weighs less than 10 stone.
Use it regularly, adjustable seat height which is great for my wife and I. I havnt been able to work out if and how I can adjust incline on seat. However nevertheless, this works great and has been a blessing through lockdown for us.
Excellent bike. Seat was initially a bit uncomfortable to begin with but after a week or two this was no longer an issue. There is a good range of programs and up to 32 resistance levels. I have been using it 2 to 3 times a week now for nearly a year now and the bike is still running great. I would definitely recommend.
Excellent bike. Runs quietly
This bike is much better than ones at the gym. It’s sturdy, yet easy to move. Really good quality and easy to use. It looks so good we keep it in our front hall!
Really happy with my AM-E. It's solid and stable, well-built, quiet, and more than enough resistance levels to accomodate a range of fitness levels. The resistence level goes higher than I think I'll ever need (I'm 76kg and currently using resistance level 18 out of 30; it's a firm workout). It's feels just like using a gym bike. It was well worth spending more to get a magnetic resistance, having previously tried a cheap belt-driven bike which wasn't fit for purpose. The only negative is that the calorie reading seems wildly high (which I understand is a pretty common problem). I usually divide the reading by two to get an estimate. There's also nowhere to place a water bottle or phone, but this was easily fixed with a £3 clamp off eBay. Ultimately though, using AM-E has helped me quickly get my weight/fat levels under control and maintain them during lockdown. Recommended.
Wiring through column to panel and bike colour coded wrong. I.e. Goes red different colour then red
It does what it says on the tin
Great bike. I would rate it up with the ones I used at the gym.
Very sturdy. 12 different programs, multiple levels of resistance. I recommend this exercise bike
Fab bike lost 3 stone in lockdown. Highly recommended.
Very happy with this bike. I like that you can make different profiles for all users. I used it since december. One negative, the saddle can become a little unconmftable for +30min workouts.
I have owned this bike for 4 months and 20km every day...done over 2500km on it. It’s a great piece of kit and excellent value. Ordered online, price included delivery and it arrived promptly. Would definitely recommend.
Some far have found this bike pretty good! It's not massively heavy and doesn't take up lots of room. The seat is fine, I'm 6.2 and use it very comfortably. Very good equipment for the price. Delivery was very quick and overall I am very happy
Easy to use, sturdy and comfortable. I wanted a bike with preset programmes and this one has 12 which I use weekly
Really like this exercise bike, simple to use and assemble, has a surprisingly good range of resistance and programs, sleek profile also means it does not take up much space and wheels an added bonus.
Good, solid and quiet
This bike has been excellent. Good range of programmed exercise and wide range of resistance meaning I can work through exercises then raise level and work through again. It has operated well throughout - although the pulse function does fail at times - mostly during the recovery measure period. Frustrating but it's intermittent and not the most important function so I can live with that.
It's great. Very sturdy. Has enough programmes for our needs. Great value.
Great bike that I use every day.
I bought this bike six months ago and I am so pleased I did - it’s as good as the exercise bikes I used at the gym (before lockdown) so having this at home during lockdown has been a blessing. It is very well designed too - sturdy, compact and not a sound when in use. I had no trouble putting it together on my own either. I would highly recommend this exercise bike.
Excellent bike. I have bought 3 of them. But there does seem to be an inherent weakness with the fitting used to connect the frame to the handlebars. This has sheared off after about 10,000 km in 2 of the 3 bikes I have bought.
I have not ridden an exercise bike before. The ordering and delivery worked well especially considering the transport issues worldwide. Unfortunately the drive belt came off the crank wheel. I informed Sweatband who immediately offered a replacement. The replacement had significantly less resistance than the initial bike and has worked perfectly since. They look well made. I am very pleased and the customer service was magnificent.
Whole service provided by Sweatband was SUPERB. Purchased during the first wave of Lockdown when it was nigh-on impossible to get one, I was sceptical at the price quoted. Arrived 2 days after ordering. Fantastic product; sturdy, user-friendly, expensive looking, but even better service. 100% would recommend (and have been!)
The DKN AM-E excels as a home exercise bike. The build is solid, and rigid, yet light enough to move around by lifting up the front - not too big, small or heavy. It looks cool like it means business and is unobtrusive. The saddle and pedals are comfy and completely in tune with the great comfort and ease of this bike. The display is clear, bright and super easy to operate - just as good as the one in the gym I used to use. As a lockdown buy for 3 adults sharing this has been a perfect purchase, the seat settings are easy to change, and it has performed perfectly for nearly 12 months now. In particular my wife got injuries to her ankles running, and having never used an exercise bike before took to this like a duck to water, never misses a day and has developed a healthy look as a result. Thanks Sweatband - delivery and price was perfect in the middle of lockdown !
This is a great piece of quality kit. Usual study DKN build that gives it a real quality feel. However..... Building looks simple but the instructions miss out a couple of key small things that are important, so far then really carefully about 5 times before you trial build. Then build it
I was very pleased when I got this on the build quality & overall quality of the cycle throughout. The monitor with its various exercise programs is very good & to find another exercise bike with this much quality & content for this price is practically impossibe. I highly rate this bike & would recommend it without hesitation.
Easy to put together and love that it has wheels to enable ease of movement. The programmes are comprehensive and challenging 32 resistance is incredibly tough and would challenge even the most serious of cyclists
Overall the bike is pretty good. The disappointing aspects are the user manual (very basic) and the console (poor functionality). Thankfully it's not too difficult to set a constant resistance or follow one of the programmes.
Everything has been 100% satisfactory: simple ordering,prompt delivery(3 days),straightforward assembly,excellent features and quiet and smooth operation. So far no technical problems so,fortunately,I cannot comment on maintenance service. The bike does not get heavy treatment- 40 minutes/day by a reasonably fit but elderly user. I would not hesitate to recommend this firm and product.
Excellent bike for those looking to shift some lockdown lard. The built in programmes are what I was looking for as apposed to the incredibly overpriced manual knob bike advertised everywhere. Added cheap heart belt and watch loads of YouTube videos going round Singapore, NYC etc. Changed the seat for a spongier version but all in a good bike
Great Exercise Bike Keeping Me Fit In Lockdown
Sturdy exercise bike with lots of levels and preset programmes to choose from. Seat is fully adjustable to suit most riders. Myself and all the family been using the bike for 6 months with no issues.
I bought this bike to reduce the lockdown bulge that was growing around my midriff. The bike is excellent and for a 6’5” male at 17st it does what I want it to. My weight has stabilised and am now incorporating stretches and other mat based exercises to improve my overall exercise regime. If I had the opportunity to change something it would be to get more control over the screen display. I don’t need the watt/cal and time/level indications changing every six seconds. I would like to fix one or the other, for instance I use program 3 and in the last 2.5 minutes I need to know how long I have left, I care little to know that I am on x or y level. Small issue but personal too me. Otherwise a great purchase.
The first machine supplied was faulty (wiring problem), but after sending photographic evidence this was quickly and efficiently replaced without further cost. The machine itself is easy to assemble and operate giving a wide range of pre-set exercise programs as well as a manual option. It has all the performance readouts you would expect. It is comfortable and robust (I am no light weight!) at a competitive cost. Highly recommended.
Easy to assemble and works really well. I am a 70 year old male with mild COPD ( lung condition ). I purchased this machine at the time of first lockdown because I could not go to gym. I use it three times a week and have not had any problems with it. Although I only use the manual programme it does have a lot of choices. A very good purchase.
Very sturdy exercise bike. We have used it approx 5 times per week for 6 months without problems. Easy to assemble. Enough programs to allow varied levels of exercise.
Ordered for rehabillation post back surgery,great service from sweatband!easy to built up,compact for a small space,would recommend,sturdy and has plenty of programmes to choose from!great buy and well priced!
Bike is good Ideal for my use of recovery from ACL knee operation. Various options of programmes to chose from plus numerous levels on manual. Has gained a few rattles along the way but hoping/thinking they are only minor and perhaps requires some wd40 :)
Quick delivery, straightforward to set up, outstanding value for money. Would highly recommend.
For the price this is a good bike. Easy to follow assembly instructions.
Well made, sturdy. Lots of programmes which I don’t use because I bought it simply to keep my arthritic joints exercised.
This is a great value exercise bike. It has lots of different programs and has been used daily by at least one member of the family without any problems.
Recieved on time and well packaged. Very good piece of kit, use it daily during winter for hard workouts and I have no problems at all. So excellent.
Great bike! Easy to use, nice and quiet.
Great machine. Solidly built, and has done the job faultlessly for the last six months. A great buy.
Really good and robust Exercise Bike that caters to various heights well [1'm 6'3"] . The various modes either setting manual level or one of programmes gives some variety to help motivate and easy to set. Instruction booklet a bit vague on how the 'Recovery' function operates as the P factor result does not seem to have any collation with length of training or programme so difficult to monitor performance . However very good value for money
Absolutely love it. Great quality, easy to set up.... great programmes on there. Well worth the money. I’ve used during all the lock downs... it’s been a life saver. Such a good bike
I ordered this bike after extensive research. I’m glad to say that I’m not disappointed. The bike was purchased purely to replace an old exercise bike and with the onset of COVID lockdown, I was looking for a reasonable upgrade. It was easy to put together and is a solid piece of kit. It is used daily by both me and my wife. We love the personalised settings and the varied range of exercise programmes. Great value for money. Oh it’s so quiet when in use.
Amazing value, put it together by myself, which is amazing really as I struggle to follow opening a milk carton. Great product and has kept me sane and motivated during covid
Very good bike. Very solid and always get a great workout. Plenty of workout options. Great purchase
It’s a great exercise machine. The only reason I haven’t given it a 5* rating is because it doesn’t have a holder for an iPhone / Android phone which would make it absolutely perfect.
Very happy with the purchase. It is well built, quite and have all the necessary features that you need to train at home.
Very happy with the bike. Plenty of programmes for me and my husband and very quiet.
Very well built machine and very good value for money. The manual that goes with it is rather disappointing.
Exxellent delivery. Straightforward to assemble - I'm no expert at self-assembly but it took me just an hour (alone) and I only made one error (dropped a washer into the innards of the bike, haven't managed to retrieve it yet). Quiet to use. Sturdy. I've been using it for about 6 weeks now. I'm a great fan of gym cardio machines but couldn't afford a gym specification bike/cross-trainer; however, I'm very pleased with this as it seems good quality, with enough programmes and levels to fight off boredom, and I can get a good cardio workout on it.
We had good support when the bike arrived damaged in transit - it was replaced. Assembly was straight forward with clear instructions. It is solidly built and performs well. Built in heart rate monitor is a bit erratic. Works better when hands are damp/sweaty.
I’m a big lad - 6’3’, 18 stone - and this bike is rock solid. Went together easily. Does exactly what it says on the tin. A great purchase.
A good piece of kit mostly straightforward to assemble. Use mainly on manual setting as none of the programmes is ideal for my purposes. Also heartrate monitor is erratic but perhaps I'm ill. For the price I don't think I could have bought better.
Perfect for me!
Compared to the 'professional' bikes I've used at the gyms I've been a member of I'd make the following points. The cycling action feels a bit floaty and disconnected. The electronics and profile setting is a bit bargain basement along with skinny handlebars etc. Also, it does need access to a powerpoint to run the electronics - bear in mind the provided transformer and lead doesn't have a huge reach so you might need an extension lead. Having said all of that it works really well to raise a decent sweat (even the heart rate monitor isn't too bad if you give it time to catch up); It's really quiet - you could use it a room where other people are watching the telly etc; it doesn't take up much space and for £300 delivered next day it's an excellent buy. I really recommend it.
I use this bike one hour a day five times a week, have not started useing set programs yet, set on manual, at pres am upto level thirteen resistance, have not one gripe about this product,easy to set up, just follow the instructions, they are very good, and easy to understand,delivery was excellent, arrived in the advertised time span, delivery company superb, product delivery was tracked, and delivered when company said it would be, an all round hassle free experience, the bike! Would i buy it again if i knew then what i know now? Definitely.
It's well made. Runs silently. Really good monitor that's easy to use.
Excellent well built and does the job.
For the money quality seems excellent as regards frame and mechanical components. Instructions for building are very poor so thankfully it's easy to assemble! The scene assembly seems light and insubstantial but display is bright at least. Delivery was very impressive taking only 3 days and surcharge for sending to N Ireland seemed to be waived which is appreciated. Early days re usage but so far positive.
Great bike. Very easy to assemble and quiet to use. The display is large and clear. Extremely happy with our purchase.
Easy to assemble. Quick to set up. Great programmes for all fitness levels. Comfortable to use. All round very pleased with it.
Excellent well built and does the job.
Good design and performance. Instructions for the display could be better.
Delighted with my exercise bike which is helping me get back to fitness after a fractured hip .
The exercise bike is very good indeed, does what it says on the tin. Easy to build, very strong and stable, easily adjusted. My one gripe are the instructions about programming the screen. Might be my denseness but I find them hard to follow. Very clever wheels for easy moving, easy to miss.
Functionally this bike represents good value. It is sturdy and incredibly smooth and quiet. Generally it feels very solid and well made. It has a excellent range of resistance levels and although I tend not to use the set programmes wife does and has no complaints. The display is very bright but you get used to it. It is used daily by three in the household and is standing up to the challenge fine. The seat adjustment mechanism is a bit sticky sometimes so hopefully that wont be a problem. Overall it's a nice bit of kit.
Excellent product. Really solid structure and a good set of programme options. Heavy and non-folding are, for me, the only drawbacks. Definitely recommended.
Great piece of equipment and very solid. Unbelieveablelow price.
Really easy to set-up. Comfortable padded seat. A good variety of built in exercise programs which makes your workout more interesting.Highly recommended
Excellent product easy to assemble very quiet and useful programs
I am posting a second review to try to get an answer to a question. After about 10 minutes exercise the screen goes to E 5 and all the data is lost. Has anyone else had/fixed this problem?
The bike arrived well packed and complete. From very carefully opening the box, in case a return was needed, to getting on the bike took an hour. I have used it on manual and programme one so far. Don’t judge me I only got the bike today! It is very quiet with the only noise being a slight whirring as it automatically changes the resistance up or down. I am a svelte 6ft 2inch 114 kilogram male and I find the bike comfortable. I would also add that the service I have received from sweatband has been excellent. All in all a good experience.
Relatively easy to assemble although some graphics could be improved. Excellent to use, does all that it is advertised as doing. Provides a really good work out. Graphics are a little clunky and the button pressing to increase time is a bit cumbersome? Overall provides good value and pleased with the purchase.
Decent bike for the money. Quite robust although handlebar feels a bit flimsy. Saddle is really uncomfortable if you exercise over 30 mins. It's quite compact so does not take too much space, which is one of the reasons I bought it.
It does what it says it does.
Arrived on time, great, easy to put together, great, and a hell of a bike considering the price! Very quiet, plenty of programmes and makes you work!! All in all a very happy chappy
Excellent product getting daily use at home. Recommend
Havent even built it as yet,ended up with covid19 & i am now thankfully on road to recovery.
Well made. Went together easily. Use it three times a week which is 50% more than when I went to the gym. It has always had knock sound when cycling ot sure if that's some sort of mechanical counter. Downside is I have to pay for my shower, but can't complain it's saving me £300 pa in fees.
Great bike with all the features your need
Not a brand I was familiar with, but had good reviews so decided to go for it. Really pleased I did as the product is very good. Would highly recommend.
Pretty good bike, sturdy, quiet good resistance levels. Only gripe is the heart monitor is useless. Worth the money
Sturdily built bike that is a pleasure to use. The auto tension adjust is great and a good selection of built in program profiles. The back/toward and height adjustment of the seat coupled with handle bars that can be adjusted for rake ensures that people of all seizes should be able to achieve a suitable riding position. I was originally looking for a bike within a £200 budget but I have no regrets in paying the extra for this one.
Ordered this bike on Tuesday and was already here by Thursday lunchtime, after unpacking it only took about twenty minutes to assemble. Started using it almost straight away, so far I have only used the manual programme but once I have built up my fitness will start using the built in programmes which seem easy enough to set up. As for the actual quality of the bike all I can say is WOW so well built, sturdy and better than many bikes that you find in some gyms and that comes from my two sons who are both keen gym members. I will also add that I am not a small chap but this bike copes without any problems what so ever.
Bought this last week and delivery was very quick. Assembly fairly straight forward, even for an old guy. This is a very good bike for keeping me fit now that the gym is closed. Great quality at a very good price.
The bike is excellent. It was really easy to put together but you do need to follow the instructions properly - it only took me about 30 minutes to unpack and get the bike set up. The gel seat is a lot more comfortable than the ones I've used at the gym. It doesn't take up a lot of room and is easy to move around.
I was hesitant to order from Sweatband due to mixed reviews but so glad I did. I received the bikes within 2 working days. Instructions are simple enough. Unfortunately I had a faulty seat but sweatband sent me a replacement next day. Great service. Bike is amazing for the price, although pulse and calories are inaccurate and no bottle holder. Resistance is very good. Seat is a little uncomfortable so order a gel pad seat :)
This is an excellent exercise bike for the money assembly is quite straight forward with nice clear pics in the manual supplied, for anyone that are very tall this cycle is a good choice I'm 6ft 8in tall with a 36in inside leg and I fit quite comfortably on the bike and my knees are well clear of hitting the handlebars when cycling well pleased with my purchase.
Service from sweatband was excellent and speedy. Bike is sturdier than I had expected and is very quiet. Good quality product and certainly very suitable for keeping fit. Like all things read the manual and then setup and use is simpler. Setting up each user is easy and although this data is not displayed after power off, it is held and recovered with a few presses of the 'Mode' button - very quick and simple. Overall this looks excellent value to me compared with many other s offering the same functionality.
Do not hesitate this is fantastic and literally silent when in use. For information also the bar on the front doesn’t move like the video so don’t worry it’s fantastically made and performs like a £500+ machine BUY!
Very easy to assemble exercise bike. Very sturdy design, comfortable and stable. Would highly recommend it.
Easy to assemble, together with comprehensive instructions on how to operate the exercise bike.
Great price, great bike, couldn't fault this equipment
just what I needed works a treat very strong
This bike replaced a 10 month old one where the pedal shaft bearing had become noisy. I was most impressed by Sweatbands no-quibble response; just pack up the your failed bike and we will collect it after your new one has been delivered. Excellent service.
It is a comfortable bike to ride although we have come up against one insurmountable problem -- it is not possible to tighten the seat. It appears that it is a bad fit as we have the nuts as tight as possible.
Lovely looking exercise bike, very quiet while cycling. My husband and I love it
I got this bike for Christmas, I unboxed it and it had a faulty foot, after a quick email to sweatband, they delivered by courier, not one but two, and it was within days. Would highly recommend sweatband and this bike to anyone. It's very quiet and lovely and smooth.
The Bike was easy to assemble with the tools provided. Very impressed with the quality of everything supplied. Very impressed with the high standard of everything. The programs on the display are user friendly and easy to understand. Ten out Ten for everything.
Two days till Christmas..........then I will be able to reply with knowledge........ JINGLE BELLS..........Tony....xx
Very easy to set up. Good selection of programmes. Comfortable.
I ordered this exercise bike from sweatband.com at 1pm Tuesday and it was delivered to my house 5.50pm Wednesday evening. Amazing service from sweatband, the carrier UKmail and the very polite man who delivered it to my home. The bike was well packaged and my husband enjoyed putting it together and followed the instructions easily. It is a very sturdy bike, very quiet when peddling and looks fantastic. It now has pride of place in his gym room and he has already clocked up a few miles. We highly recommend this bike definitely worth the money.
Assembly takes longer than indicated and it is heavy to move if you are doing it on your own. Parts seem well made and solid. In use it seems fine although computer display and selecting programmes is rather confusing.
I have had home exercise bikes in the past but none have been this sturdy and well built before or I would even go as far as to say it's on par with some of the gym bikes I have used in the past the programs are really good and really do make you work hard in your workout with highly recommend and this bike to anyone definitely worth the money.
Strong and sturdy machine with plenty of exercise options both manual and programmed.
A good comfortable bike that has a smooth pedal action.
This exercise bike in my opinion is the best bike on the market for value for money and very sturdy.
Excellent quality exercise bike at a very reasonable price - the electronic monitor works a dream and gives you all the information you need - excellent service from Sweatband with fast delivery.
Very well made & easy to assemble. Excellent value for money. Operating instructions took a little time to understand when using the control screen.
No problems dealing with Sweatband.com online and really pleased with our DKN AM-E. The bike met all our expectations, easy to put together, sturdy build quality, plenty off exercise options, comfortable saddle and good for short or tall people my wife is 5ft 8 and I am 6ft 1. The design is compact and all in all good value for money.
The exercise bike was delivered on time as promised. The bike was very easy to setup. No external tools are required. I was expecting some bit of noise while cycling but it is soundless.
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 :)
Really sturdy, really quiet, lots of useful features: Great for the money
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.
Purchased the DKN AM-E exercise bike a couple of weeks before Xmas and it arrived as per schedule, so very happy. Started to put it together over a weekend and unfortunately experienced a problem with the front stabilizer and one of the bolts and so contacted support via an email as they’re not available at the weekend. Rob from support rang first thing Monday morning, great service, and when I explained what was wrong he said no problem and arranged for a replacement front stabilizer with its bolts to be sent within a couple of days and said to contact him if it didn’t arrive. The stabilizer and bolts arrived as promised, so excellent service from Rob. I can highly recommend Sweatband.com for the service they’ve provided. All I need to do now is figure out how to connect the DKN AM-E via Bluetooth to my S7 Edge phone! It doesn’t appear to show up as Bluetooth device in my S7 Edge, and as many have said before the documentation from DKN that comes with the bike is unfortunately very poor as regards providing instructions on how the bike connects via Bluetooth and also there are no details about what the 12 pre-set exercise programs do, so the DKN manual is the only negative thing I can say about the DKN AM-E but still very happy with the bike.
Very happy with the quality
An excellent machine. It was easy to order, receive, put together and operate. As an older user (early 70's) it is perfect and is robust enough for my gym-fanatic grandson to pedal furiously on!
An excellent exercise bike. Well built, and a pleasure to use.
Solid, quiet, good set of programmes, good set of resistance levels. Very happy with it.
extremely pleased. Easy to assemble and works very well
only issue is a clicking noise from the left hand side of the unit when peddling on level 1,2 and 3 which is really annoying
I purchased this after reading the reviews and must say I'm really delighted with it. It's sturdy, very comfortable and was pretty easy to put together. I feel I have had value for money with this product, it's not the cheapest or the most expensive however it represents good value. I am a large lady and was concerned it wouldn't be robust....it is. Hoping to get back into my healthy lifestyle and this is helping.
This my third try at exercising with static equipment - treadmill and elliptical trainer both boring and only useful for hanging the washing on, but not so my exercise bike! This is a solid machine with 10 programmes that make each visit interesting. It’s very good quality and sits firmly on the floor with no shakes when alighting. Definitely worth every penny. I love it!!
Lovely bike, seat very comfy. very easy to put together did it on my own (lady of 70yrs) would definitely recommend this product.
Great price. Great quality.
The bike to very good value for money and provides sufficient programmes to make using it interesting. It seems well made and is excellent for use at home.
Excellent bike, very quiet and comfortable. Great selection of different settings to choose from. Easy to put together. Highly recommend this bike.
Great bike. Very sturdy and quiet. Excellent product.
This is a great product. It is a bit tricky to connect the electrical, but once that’s done (and you’ve worked out where to plug the power cable in!!) you will be pleased with the sturdy and adjustable nature of this bike. The programmes are good, and the display helps keep motivation levels high! Great product.
Has everything you need for an exercise bike. Smooth pedalling action, a comfortable seat that can be adjusted for height for all sizes. A great visual display console gives you distance, time, watts, calories heart rate. I am a regular cyclist and I value an exercise bike like this when the weather is poor outside. There are useful pre-set programmes which vary resistance. Easy to put together.
I love it. Seat could be a bit comfier but purchased a gel seat cover for my last bike so will probably do the same with this one. Enjoy all the different programmes on it so it is great for me.
Easy to put together and we were using it the same day it was delivered. Lots of programmes to choose from so you dont get bored abd unable to get out on the road bike.
Sturdy and stable. Variety of programs.
It was the best purchase I have made in a long time. It was easy to assemble, sturdy and soft saddle! I would recommend this bike to anyone looking for a home exercise bike. Wendy Manners
Very quick delivery. Easy to assemble. Very well engineered.
Very sturdy and easy to assemble.
Excellent service and price a great excercuse bike for starters and intermediate people. I’m just getting over a knee replacement and this has helped me no end as I need to get my leg moving but with low impact.
Loving my new AM-E bike. Easy to assemble and beautifully smooth and quiet in operation.
Ordering was easy. Delivery was great. The bike was easy to assembly. We bought it for our residents and they are already enjoying the benefits. Sturdy bike, ticks all the boxes for us. Thank you.
Easy assembly and good control panel. The saddle could have been more comfortable. Overall it is a good exercise bike.
I bought this exercise bike after looking at many reviews on various makes. I am very pleased with it. The quality and value for money. It is quiet and there are plenty of programmes so this should suit most people. I bought it as I have a knee problem, I use it twice a day and it certainly seems to be helping. My two daughters and my grandson have started using it regularly now as well.
Had this bike about a month so far excellent, very quiet, easy to assemble, someone mentioned they had a click when peddling i had the same turned out to be peddle needing tightening. Still enjoy cycling on the roads but this is a safer option for a 65yr old
Great quality bike for the price. Solid piece of equipment and so glad I purchased this. Love the different programmes and levels. My teenage daughter loves it too but manages about 40 minutes much longer than me and I consider myself fit!
This is an excellent purchase. Easy to assemble and provides everything you need for this type of exercise.
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.
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).
Have been using the bike for about a month now and am very pleased with it. The assembly instructions could have been clearer but it feels a good quality machine and I doubt that I will outgrow it . I did find that the programmed settings change too frequently with the consequent loss of tension for a second before the next setting kicks in, so now I just leave it on manual and use the up/down buttons to regulate the tension.
I am 6' 3" and heavy set, there is plenty of adjustment to get right position and bike is very stable. Putting it together was easy enough by one person a bit of thought and study of instructions and pictures should get most people through the task. I bit more info on correct riding position would have been useful but plenty of info on the internet so not a problem. Also more description of the training programmes would be helpful e.g. "why would I use this programme?" type info.
I am delighted with this bike. It is sturdy, with several programming options to break-up my routine. It is as good as any bike I've used in the gym - it is positioned in front of a TV so I can watch Youtube road videos and pretend I'm cycling down country lanes......! Didn't take long for us to assemble either. I've seen similar models in other retailers, and am confident I bought the best bike at the best price.
Easy to assemble and sturdy once built. I am 6foot3 and it accommodates my legs with ease very quiet in operation good bike great price
Once built it was easy to setup for my wife and me, very quiet.
Great features easy to use ,the quality of build is very good , length of use will determine the value for money ...
Very good. Assembled in 30 minutes. Very sturdy. Works well.
Simple to operate and very comfortable hopefully it will last for years.
Works very well and is great quality for the price I paid. I've not owned any other home bikes and so can't compare it to oter makes but compared to gym bikes its about 75% of their quality so given they probably cost a couple of grand its great value for money.
It is a solid well built bike. The onboard computer is fairly straight forward but we tend to just use the manual setting. The electronic adjustable tension was the the main feature for us and is easy to use. It's only in light use at the moment but can see it lasting for a good few years. Overall we are really pleased.
Looked for a decent exercise bike for my budget of up to £200 and after quite a lot of reading specs and reviews decided on the DKN AM-E. Sturdy model, easily put together and up and running in about 30 mins. Very smooth peddling movement and plenty of modes to work up to. Good seat and two way adjustment make bike usefull for everyone. Placed in front of the TV and a 30 minute session flies in. Kids are even having a go which was unexpected.
Fast delivery. Easy assembly with all the steps clearly illustrated and tools required provided. At 6foot3 I can use the bike without hitting knees on handlebars. Only arrived today so don't know how it will stand the test of time but so far happy with it. Oh and it is super quiet.
I've had the bike for 8 weeks now. Very happy with it. Its sturdy and quiet. Plenty of programs and intensity levels available. Programming the display panel was a bit fiddly at the beginning. Had no problems with building the bike, even single handed. Delivery was very quick and bike well packaged. Initially had an issue with the HR monitor device (chest strap) however Sweatband replaced this item quickly without any fuss. Highly recommend this piece of equipment and Sweatband.
Ordered this bike on Sat night and it arrived on Tue at mid day. Assembly was straight forward with all parts clearly labelled. The bike is sturdy and has a quality feel to it although I must echo a couple of points made in a previous review. The saddle is incomfortable, I don't know if I'll get used to it or buy another one and I'm 5'2" and have had a knee replaced so getting it set for me was time consuming. Now it's all up and running I'm very happy with my purchase apart from the sore bum.
I've owned my bike for a few months now and I am very happy with it, the programs are great as well as the manual settings. I've found the bike works great for both HIIT and a longer ride although I have found the saddle gets quite uncomfortable, esspecialy after 20 miles or so. It's also very solid and allows for a 'climb' work out with rocking the bike. It did take a while to set up a comfortable riding position but I am small at 5'2. Overall I am very happy with my purchase but I would look into changing the saddle for something more comfortable.
An expensive piece of equipment but a very sturdy and professional exercise bike so worth the money. I could have done with an extra pair of hands to assemble it as the parts are quite heavy to hold in place but I still managed it singlehandedly. Despite having wheels on the front - it's not really easy to move about in a house, so really needs a place to live and it is large (i.e. not inconspicuous!) Despite that, I have put it in my lounge because I want to use it regularly and I've got used to it being there. I haven't used it as much as I planned to date but I know I'm going to as it has a lot to offer. Loving it so far!
Very happy with purchase
Very pleased with the bike.I think it good value for the money.It's set up in my front room on carpet and is very quiet. I'm disabled and can't walk too far and bike is ideal Not difficult to assemble if you study instructions.All in all I'm thrilled with purchase
Excellent value for money, speedy delivery and easy to put together. Saddle a little uncomfortable at first, but am getting used to it as the miles rack up. Bought to help keep fit and loose some excess baggage around the waist. Easier on the joints than my treadmill. Would be nice to have the computer distance readout shown in miles as well as kilometres, but other than that very pleased with the product and would recommend for daily home use.
It was fairly easy to put together, it took two of us about half an hour. The computer was straightforward and the screen is easy to read. It is very quiet in operation, I haven't used all the levels yet, but the first few levels are not too strenuous.
I bought this having looked at several reviews of this and other exercise bikes. It is simple to put together and appears robust. It does exactly what it claims to do and is excellent value for money. So far so good!
This is a great exercise bike. I'm a cyclist. It's just what I need if the weather's bad, or I don't feel like going out on the bike. I set it to a fairly high HR level, and just sweat it out. I love the way the bike gradually builds you up to your max heart rate.....or near to it. Great piece of kit!
Sturdy,relatively easy to assembl,good features,value for money.Enjoing the ride!
I am very pleased with my exercise bike. it was very easy to assemble and has a very solid feel. There is an extensive array of settings so I can raise the game as I get fitter. I found the Computer a bit of a fiddle to set at first but as in all things as you get to know its idiosyncrasies it becomes easier. All in all I am very satisfied with the machine and consider it to be very good value.
I have used the bike numerous times and have yet to find a problem. It was very easy to put together and the build quality is better than I thought it would be for the price. The electronic programmer is more than adequate with enough pre set programmes. The only slight issue I have is that the calorie counter is very flattering, but I don't think any are really accurate. I am very pleased with the purchase
It provides gentle controlled exercise for a couple of pensioners or more vigorous exercise for the youngsters. Very versatile.
I am very satisfied with the product. A very solid and quiet in one machine. Ease of use of the program. This is our best choice. I can only recommend to everyone. Thank Sweatband.com.
Solidly built machine and easy to put together. The screen colour monitor is excellent with plenty of information while peddling. My only negative comment concerns the instruction manual which could be more explicit e.g. the gender icon looks the same for both.
Easy to assemble, takes about 45mins. and not the problem some reviews say. Found it to be very quiet but has developed a slight knock that I hope doesn't get any worse. The preset programs seem to be more for a professional cyclist and I tend to slowly increase the level each week as my fitness gets better. I would recommend this product for home use.
Really good value, not sure watts output is that accurate but other than that very pleased with itm
This exercise bike seems well made. Assembly took me about 30minutes. Quite straight forward. I'm a keen cyclist and I found the very wide saddle uncomfortable. It's so wide, it splayed my legs too much, putting strain on knees. I have changed saddle with one of my spare road bike saddles. I also changed pedals to some mountain bike flats. I don't use any of the pre programmed workouts, I do my own. The bike could do with a little more resistance, just to replicate out of saddle hill climbing. Overall though I am happy with purchase.
