    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

    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. The only thing i found tricky was putting on the left pedal, it screws on the opposite way of the right pedal. The only... 5/5 V. Dibartolo (Brooklyn) - See all my reviews, March 4, 2010

    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.

    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. After 30 minutes I could barely walk, but, again, that's due to me, not the bike.

    Good moderate-exertion women's bike

    I ride a real bicycle 3-4 times a week. 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.

    Excellent, with a caveat (updated 12/2013)

    I researched pretty thoroughly before buying and for the $ this was exactly what I was looking for - a combo of simplicity and quality. I knew I wouldn't be compelled to use it if it felt shoddy, but it is quiet and sturdy.Some of the issues brought up by other reviewers were concerning- difficult for one person to put together, poor resistance, hard seat, etc. and here's what I've found:Assembly: The tension cable was a bit tricky to set up until I found that if you turn the resistance dial on the front post towards 8- it will give you more length to work with. It was so much easier to assemble after that. Don't fret if it seems like it may be too loose- dial back to shorten to easily place into the housing. Overall, even with adjusting it, it took me about 30-40 minutes to put together.Resistance: When I first started riding I was almost at the max resistance, and I'm no athlete, so I knew something had to be adjustable or it was bad goods.

    Great exercise choice for sedentary or obese people

    0 5/5 N. Nkenge (New York) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) I was inspired to purchase a pedal exerciser because of the savings it offers from the more costly stationary bike and because it is a viable fitness option for people like me who are sedentary and obese. I have been using my pedals since they day they arrived by mail and love the fact that they come fully assembled, are cost-effective and compact enough to store without dedicated storage space. There are no excuses to everyday movement with this in your household! It is worth the investment and combined with the use of free weights, provides a full body workout experience. The only drawback is that it should not be touched-moved immediately following a workout because it does generate extreme heat and it also shifts around too much to be used on hardwood floors so it is most conducive to the carpeted areas of your home. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 22, 2009

    excellent for low impact exercise - and even for good cardio if needed

    0 5/5 playmakerno10 (baltimore md usa) - See all my reviews I have had this little pedaller for over a year now and wanted to make a second review.I originally got this for my mom because she has some heart issues, after years of high blood pressure and diabetes. It will go only as fast as you pedal so she likes how she can take it slow while watching tv, to improve circulation in her legs.However, if you are a young healthy person looking for a cardio workout in confined space / on the cheap, this is also very effective. Although of course not as effective at burning calories as running outside, if this is what you have to work with, it's doable.As a note, if you are using this for serious cardio (30+ minutes), I highly suggest buying some ankle weights (3-5 lbs per leg) and wearing them while you pedal - it makes it around twice as hard and is very effective. I bought some weights on amazon with the free shipping option for less than ten dollars. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 20, 2009

    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.

    SOME PEOPLE ARE NEVER SATISFIED

    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. When I found mine to be that way I removed the cover and there is an adjustment inside that will allow you to make the pedals so tight you can use them for a step stool. All-in-all, for the money, the device is more than you usually get and is built much better than a lot of people are assuming.

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. When I found mine to be that way I removed the cover and there is an adjustment inside that will allow you to make the pedals so tight you can use them for a step stool. All-in-all, for the money, the device is more than you usually get and is built much better than a lot of people are assuming. Bottom line is if you want a Mercedes don't buy a Ford...but remember you pay lots more for...

    I returned it for a refund

    I bought this from a store. I was happy about how quiet the machine was until a plastic spacer (for keeping moving parts apart) broke into two pieces and fell out of the machine after only used for 1 hour. Crank arms movement went from steady and quiet to wobbly and nosy after the spacer broke and fell off. I exchanged it for a new one but heard strange scraping noise on each turn from the new machine. After careful examination of the machine I found several problems: 1/ A large crack has already developed on a plastic spacer exactly like the one that broke up on the previous machine. Instead of using strong metal or strong plastic that doesn't break easily for the spacer, the manufacturer used very cheap and weak plastic for that part. I think the spacers have already developed cracks when they were forced onto the axis during manufacturing. 2/ The electric wire from the motion detector to the meter is not secured properly to keep it from touching the friction wheel. That's seems... 2/5 Simon Pang - See all my reviews This review is from: Wagan EL2773 Mini Cycle (Automotive) I bought this from a store.
