    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 Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

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

    I am a 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 (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

LINK BELOW. :)Greetings!!!I spent a lot of time reviewing many machines and watching videos and I finally decided on this one.I have been riding recumbent bikes for 8 years and I have owned ones with lots of bells and whistles,and just simple manual machines for setting your own loads for intensive training.I just finished putting this together and it is a great performer. It has a very solid frame and themagnetic resistance load goes from very light to extreme load. It will challenge anyone wishing fora hard workout. The computer has the basics for letting you know distance, speed, elapssed time, caloriesburned (approx. only), etc. If you are not looking for programmed routines and just want a goodmanual riding machine, you will not be disapointed.

    A fantastic exercise bike for a quality price!

    I am in the middle of a diet and exercise program, and have been aching to get a recumbent exercise bike since the beginning. I am keeping a blog about my weight loss and mentioned it several times. My parents took note of it and purchased this for me for Christmas 2011. I was real excited when I got it home and put it together.It assembled real well; it's straight-forward enough that for the most part you don't even really need directions. I used them anyway, though just for posterity's sake. It took about an hour and a half, maybe two hours to do by myself, and would've been quicker if I had been a bit more organized (half of that time was spent trying to find my tools again after moving to the next part).It's very quiet, and the tension settings are easily adjustable. The seat is fairly comfortable, and as long as you have the adjusters tightened correctly it makes no noise as you ride.The display is fairly simple; it displays the current... 5/5 Jack J.

    Good basic cardiovascular (and leg) workout; but hard to adjust for different heights; alert manual says 300 lbs not 325

    I was in the market for a piece of exercise equipment that would provide my wife and I with a good cardiovascular workout. Any additional benefit such as lower body, upper body, core was secondary to that. Also my wife is still recovering from leg injuries and she never really used an elliptical we bought before all that much. The elliptical was well over twice the price of the 900 XL and it broke just after a year. So I wanted a recumbent bike that was good but I did not want to pay for a mid or even premium priced one. I am also around 260 lbs. For all those reasons I decide to go with the 900 XL.Set-up: We were actually very impressed by how the bike is shipped to you. If you open the instruction booklet you are likely to freak out by all the parts listed. But the vast majority of pieces are already put into the machine. Now you will have to take bolts out and then back in, but there were only 6 loose bolts. Where they reasonably could have done the construction before... 4/5 austin_Larry (Austin, TX USA) - See all my reviews, January 22, 2012

    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 Amazon 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.

    I don't know why Marcy changed the model number on what was a great-selling and highly rated exercise bike on Amazon, and somehow managed to lose its 100+ mostly flattering reviews, but this looks and sounds exactly like the one I've been using 2-3 times per week for the last year-and-a-half. It works really well, and it is definitely worth the money. I'm in fairly decent shape and I use it at level 3 for 20-30 min. Level 8 would be really really hard for more than a few minutes. People who don't find the tension difficult at level 8 either got a defective tensioner or had trouble installing it properly.The calorie expenditure readout also seems pretty accurate. The flaw, but not a fatal one: the uncomfortable seat, which could not be easily replaced with another one. I tried using a sheepskin cover, but that created its own problems. You probably just have to get used to it as I've tried and mostly succeeded doing. (And the seat doesn't seem to bother everyone.)... 4/5 S.

    Great for a short, quick, cheap exercise

    0 4/5 Rain "Music & Culture Lover" (Virginia, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Stamina 15-0120 InStride Cycle XL (Sports) I bought this thing because I wanted something easy to put together, cheap, and where I can use it while watching TV. This has been perfect for that! It's been 2 months, and I've had many days where I'll take this little thing out, turn on the TV, and just go. When I'm done 30 minutes later, I'll put it away in my closet easily. I've even added some 5 lbs. dumbbells for assistance.I will totally acknowledge that......if you're looking for a vigorous workout, this won't do it....if you're looking for all-inclusive sports equipment, this isn't it....if you're looking for something that'll count your calories or time for you, this won't do it. (It comes with a timer, but it's nothing special.)...if you're looking for something to replace your daily workout, this isn't it.However, if you're looking for a cheap option that will complement your regular exercise routine while sitting, this is a great option. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 30, 2007

    Fine if you're Deaf

    0 2/5 A.P. - See all my reviews This review is from: Stamina 15-0120 InStride Cycle XL (Sports) You can use this thing for about 30 minutes before it gets too hot and starts to squeak horribly. You can tell it's from overheating because the pedal arms get too hot to touch! We have two of them bought from amazon and we took them apart to see if we could lubricate the mechanism (not easy to do) but with wd40 and lithium grease it still squeaks like you're strangling a goose. The manufacturer has a laughable return policy requiring original packaging, packing slips, paid shipping and mandatory insurance which makes it not worth it to try to return and therefore not worth buying if you are worried about the noise. OTHER than all that, it works fine. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 17, 2007

    Excellent Reconditioning for Everyone

    I am a licensed physical therapist asst and I purchased 10 on these bikes at a very affordable cost. I went to many websites, even E-bayand could not get this item for less that $27.00; I haggled and haggledwith this guy and he simply would not work with me. Then I went to Amazon.com and there she was! This bike has adjustable resistance to strengthen both arms and legs; it is great for endurance traning andfor gaining AROM post knee surgery(PROVIDED MD ENDORSES IT). Personally,I purchased in bulk for my patients upon Discharge from therapy. I didnot want to pull out unless I was sure they were able to maintain or increase the progress they had made. It is an excellent investment foranyone; you can put it on the floor for legs or on table for arms and youcan pedal away while you watch your favorite TV programs, work a crossword puzzle, knit, or whatever is your "thing".

    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

    Mixed feelings.....

    I bought this bike as cheaper alternative to the much more expensive retail exercise bikes on the market. The product description and price tag for this particular bike is exactly what I was looking for. However, I am now experiencing some buyer's remorse for going so cheap on price.To elaborate, this bike when it works is great. It is comfortable, quiet, and the digital monitor is nice. However, I guess I was unlucky and got a factory dud. After just one exercise routine the digital monitor stopped working when you started/stopped pedaling. You could reset it and it still not activate once you started pedaling. At this point I almost decided to send it back, but I decided to open up the case and take a peek inside. What I found was the little magnetic pickup had moved out of position and was too far away from the magnet that's attached to the pulley. It wouldn't trigger. The sensor itself is glued to a flimsy piece of plastic covered in a protective gel and held to the... 2/5 texas_mustang_guy (D/FW, TX) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Perfect Home Use Bike, Love It!

    0 5/5 B Holmes "BH" (Red Sox Nation) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Stamina 1350 Magnetic Resistance Recumbent Bike (Sports) I bought this bike to use in my home while watching TV. It's super quiet. It's not a sophisticated model like you use in the gym, but it sure is a great substitute if the gym scene isn't for you. I was overwhelmed when I took it out of the box to put it together...but it went together in a snap (20 min.) I really love it & use it everyday. It suits my needs perfectly for strengthening/toning after having knee surgery. I recommend this bike as the best bang for your buck! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 1, 2009
