    Was skeptical....

    I rarely write a product review + or -, unless the product is REALLY good or REALLY poor--I'm also not the easiest consumer to impress. I am happy to write a REALLY good review for the Exerpeutic folding exercise bike. I am 6'2'' @ 215 lbs with long legs and cycled quite a bit before injuries and schedules became a bit too busy, so I do know a fair amount about bikes. I thought this might be more of a disposable bike, last a couple of years at best, be too wiggly, weak mechanics..that kind of thing, but quite the contrary, I am happily surprised by the quality of the entire product. The craftsmanship of the Exerpeutic folding exercise bike is very good, the frame tubes are heavy steel with good welds, the seat is large enough to have an extended ride comfortably (probably the most comfortable stationary bike seat I've used including expensive gym bikes), the bike has a wide stable "footprint" when opened but is also light enough to move from room to room if needed (has wheels on the... 5/5 DRG - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Well-built bike........not the best bio-mechanics

    I am a former personal trainer so I hope my comments are useful to interested buyers. The build quality of the bike is excellent; however the main drawback of the bike is its bio-mechanics, or the way it interacts with your body when you are cycling.Regarding build quality---the bike is made of excellent materials for the most part, and is a solid piece of machinery. The bike is very sturdy and stable when you're cycling. I had never owned a magnetic resistance bike before, so I was a little nervous about the concept. But I am very impressed with the quiet, smooth pedaling action of the bike at all levels of resistance. I am in average physical condition, and the bike provides more than enough resistance at level 4 to 6 (out of 8) to give me a good workout.The main problem with the bike is the bio-mechanics, i.e. the way your body interacts with the bike.

    High Quality Product at a Decent Price

    Let's break down the grading here by sections. FYI, I have had the bike for about 3 months and have logged 850 miles. I am roughly 5' 11" and have weighed between 250lbs and 228lbs in those three months.1.) Assembly - 4.5/5It took me (a non-handy desk worker with very little craftsman experience) roughly 25 minutes to put the bike together. A great deal of the assembly is done before you take it out of the box (the frame and handlebars are individually assembled). The one knock here is that the instructions could definitely be easier to follow, but it was still easier than following the instructions that come with a typical DIY desk or bookcase.2.)

    Sit Down and Excercise!

    For a person with degenerative spine and arthritic knees and hips, who can stand for only limited periods of time, getting any excercise is a real challenge. When I saw this little machine, I thought I would give it a try. I've been very glad I did. It's small and light weight so I can move it if I need to. I use it with a kitchen chair so I have a stable seat instead of an arm chair or sofa. It counts the revolutions, the time spent and an approximatation of the calories burned. It has a tension control, but it loosens as I pedal along.So far, I've used it 30 minutes a day, every day since I got it. I just choose a TV show and pedal the whole time. It makes no noise at all so it's not competing with the TV for sound. Admittedly, it's not a real bicycle in the real world workout, but for those of us who need an indoor substitute that's safe, I really recommend this. It's inexpensive and easy to use. You can also put it on a table and pedal with your arms if... 5/5 J. Stroud (San Antonio, TX United States) - See all my reviews, July 18, 2010

This review is from: Drive Medical Deluxe Folding Exercise Peddler with Electronic Display , Black Model # RTL10273 (Health and Beauty) I bought this product so that I could do something with my legs while sitting at my desk job all day. I know that I look funny as I pedal while working on the computer. My knees hit the bottom of the desk, so it does require that I back away from my desk to use it. First time I used it, awesome! Then it started squeaking. Invested in some WD-40 and no problems since. I love that it counts your revolutions and calories, even if the calories aren't weight adjusted. A good way to burn calories at work! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 24, 2011

    One heck of a quiet workout!

    As an apartment dweller I was so pleased to find this (thanks Sky Mall magazine for the idea, but bigger thanks to Amazon for having it at a great price with super saver shipping too). To be honest I was skeptical as to how sturdy this product would be and as to how much of a workout it would give. I have not been disappointed at all and in fact more pleased than I thought I'd be.It was easy to assemble, but must say that the instruction manual gives WAY too many diagrams of parts, etc. that aren't needed to assemble it and makes it look more intimidating to assemble than it really is. It comes with a wrench and Phillips head screwdriver/Allen wrench and that's all you'll need. It took me about 45 minutes to assemble, but had the instructions been simpler it would have been more like 30 minutes. I keep the tools handy and check the assembly points from time to time and give it a little snugging up, but it's not as if the bolts are really loose. It's just me being a... 5/5 K.

    Great bike, but be wary of the seat

    This exercise bike is a good value for the money. It is quite sturdy for an inexpensive bike, works well, and is easy to put together. I also like the handlebars, so my upper body can be getting a workout while I'm pedaling instead of just my legs. I got this bike because I needed to rehab my knee after having microfracture surgery. The only reason I can't give this bike 5 stars is because of the hardness of the seat. Even though I purchased the Sunlite Gel Bicycle Seat Cover (which Amazon suggested in the Frequently Purchased Together section of the bike's webpage) at the same time that I purchased the bike, it barely makes a difference. After 30 minutes of riding, I am literally forced to get off of the bike. I also put a thick towel on top of the Gel Seat Cover, and even with that extra measure, my butt and family jewels are rendered numb from the hardness of the seat. I probably should have done more research on seat covers instead of simply buying the one that Amazon suggested... 4/5 chuck1231 (Bolingbrook, IL) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    The Best Exercise Machine Ever For The Price

    In all honesty im 6 Feet Tall and its fine i don't see any problem with it, i read the other review about "it's for midgets" and that not true. I have it on the highest seat setting and my knees still don't hit the bars or my chest lol. Its a great bike... i would only recommend getting the gel seat cover they recommend to get, i think its called "Cloud Nine" Other than that your good to go. I also read that it's a bit loud and that it makes it difficult to hear the TV at the same time your using the Bike. Well i have mine right in front of the TV and yes the bike makes some noise....but nothing to stress over, all you have to do is raise the volume a little and it's good,the bike isn't that loud. Now lets get to assembling part,oh wait i forgot to tell you there barely is any assembling to do, i put it together in 30 minutes and the instructions were good to me.

    Exactly what I was hoping it would be

    This little exerciser fits right under my desk, and when it's on its mat, it does not move around on the floor (wood) at all. The noise level is pretty quiet--just a low-level ssssss, but I work at home, so I'm not sure how it would play in a cubicle setting. It was easy to assemble.I, too, found that the tension setting doesn't make much of a difference, although it got a little tighter with more turns that I would have thought necessary. But sitting here pedaling away for a half hour felt like it lasted about a minute as I surfed and worked and allegedly--according to the calorie counter--burned about 250 calories. I did break a sweat in my air-conditioned livingroom. I expect to find myself pedaling off and on all day without even thinking about it, and I don't have to leave my work and carve out a half hour or an hour to get in a bit of daily exercise.

    I don't usually write reviews, in fact, this is my first in 20 years on the net, but several things need to be addressed here. Contrary to complaints the plastic housing is absoutly sufficient, the cracking of some of the housings is due to the manufacturer's packing and not Amazon"s (I got one too it got replaced) no biggie. And as far as that person complaining about having to put in four bolts to attach the feet goes...I'd hate to see them with a device a little more complex.....they'd look like a monkey with a math problem. I too found the maximum resistance that you can get from the knob too light.

    All Good

    Bought this item via Amazon over other retailers because of the free shipping (delivered very quickly by Fed-Ex). Took a while to put together, and the tension chord was a complete bitch, but I broke out my trusty wrench and got it in place. This bike is very sturdy, and I tightened the piss out of the nuts and bolts so it would be. I can see where the base legs and seat may wobble if the bolts are not tight, so be vigilant about that. Had to get used to the smooth, noiseless ride, and the higher tension settings will get smoother as I get more used to it. The lower settings are very smooth and effortless. The plastic case was intact, no bolts were missing, all was good, and the bike fits into a convenient spot in my apartment and takes up little space. As a cardio exerciser, it works well, and after 15 minutes of use I was sweating like, well, like a fat guy on a bike.

I have very muscular legs and can easily ride 20+ miles over the course of the day.I bought this exercise bike so I can stay fit without having to go out in the nasty weather (snow, rain, and ice.)Assembly: Straightforward and fairly easy. But, the plastic body of the bike is cracked on one side. I'm ticked off about that, but it doesn't affect the bike's function.Seat: There is nothing wrong with this seat. I don't know why so many users have complained; I'm guessing they are not frequent bike riders and are looking for an easy way to get fit. Virtually any bike seat is uncomfortable if you aren't used to riding a bike. As for me, after riding this bike for an hour I have no butt discomfort. I attribute this to my regular bike usage. For newbies, I estimate it will take a week or so to become accustomed to sitting on a bike seat.Exertion: The highest setting is not difficult to pedal. Maybe this... 4/5 The Doc - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Marcy Marcy Upright Mag Bike (Sports) I ride a real bicycle 3-4 times a week.

    An excellent value

    I pre-ordered this bike, and wanted to give a detailed review for anyone who is considering purchasing it.Shipping - While this isn't directly related to the bike, our box did have minor damage, including some of the foam inside being broken. I only mention this as it relates to the boxing Schwinn uses. The bike doesn't appear to have taken any damage though in our case, so this wasn't a problem.Build Quality/Construction - The bike seems very sturdy, and the materials are high quality as far as I can tell. The flywheel on ours seemed to have some minor knicks/imperfections upon visual inspection, but this hasn't had any negative effect on the performance of the bike. The bike was fairly easy to assemble, and took about an hour. There are parts of the assembly where having a second person helps, to hold something up while you connect the electronics, etc.Resistance - The bike offers 25 levels of resistance, and the magnetic flywheel changes... 5/5 Cory H - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Very Disappointed - Hopeful Update - Now Happy

    Received when expected; relatively easy to assemble; did not work. Contacted Nautilus regarding issues. They were very helpful in setting up an account for me and identifying which parts need replacement and said they would ship direct to me which was great. Then they informed me that it would be at least four (4) weeks before they would have the parts to send. After paying extra for expedited shipment and now having to wait at least four more weeks before I might be able to use this bike is very disappointing. Now wishing I had purchase from a local store so I could easily return this and get my money back.Update: received a call from Nautilus saying that I shouldn't have to wait four weeks for a working bike so they are shipping me a new one. If the new one works I may be able to change my rating to a more favorable one as I really think I will like this bike.2nd Update: I received the replacement bike, assembled it, plugged it in, and it worked! I put 22... 5/5 James Connell - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    For Short and Tall Couples

    My wife is 5'0", and I am 6'1". When we buy a car, we like to press a button to remember the extreme settings for each driver. The same is true for an exercise bike. On this bike, my wife uses the next to the lowest seat-post position with the seat position shifted forward. For me the seat-post is almost all the way up with the seat pushed all the way back; its great to have both seat adjustments. Also, like driver memory, the bike's computer remembers the users name, age, weight, height and cardio preferences for up to four people. So if you are attempting to find a bike that can accommodate dissimilar user preferences, this bike is an excellent suitor.If you are also considering the Schwinn 150 to this Schwinn 170, and are unsure which to get, at the time of this writing, the Schwinn 150 has straight pedal arms, which causes the heal of the back of your shoe and/or your ankle to rub against the pedal arm; there are user reviews to validate this.
