Rated 5 out of 5 by msmh This bike ROCKS!!!
I recently purchased this bike base on the other reviews and took a chance and boy I am completely blown away! This bike rocks! Delivery time actually came earlier than expected and the UPS guy was nice enough to help me with the box (its heavy like 125 lbs) no damage. The assembly was very easy and I did it myself in no time.
The body of the bike came already assembled so that helped alot. Since I'm a first time spin cycler I purchased some accessories on amazon - gel seat cover, padded bike shorts, bike floor mat, universal IPad holder for bike and spin cycle DVD for beginners. The accessories do make a big difference and I'm on my way to a tone bod! I highly recommend this bike as its very reasonable in price and well made.
I'm a happy customer! Thanks QVC for the easy payment as well!
Rated 5 out of 5 by bat4 Great workout bike!!
I received my bike and as stated, very easy to put a few parts together but most of the bike was together. Loved that part! Very solid and heavy! I am so pleased with my purchase! I have Spin DVDs to spin with and absolutely love my workouts! This bike is 5 stars for me! I definitely recommend this Awesome Bike!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by nakitababy BEST bike i have come across
After a total knee replacement, I HAD to get a stationary bike. I must use it 2 to 3 times a day for the rest of my life or end up immobile permanently. This is THE best bike out there. You will need a new seat, I went to my local bike shop and got a really big, comfy seat, and an additional padded seat cover. Cost an additional 100 bucks, but now the bikes actually comfortable! While I still hate getting on the bike, I LOVE what it does for me. Get this bike, you will have no regrets
Rated 5 out of 5 by gibb03884 'Bull' the Bike
What a 'rock' of a bike! It My 5 year old calls it 'The Bull'.
I am a 6' 5" ex-college football offensive lineman and need very tough equipment or it dissolves. The action on this massive super-heavy flywheel is smooth as glass. I've broken crank shafts off before spinning like a madman in the gym and I can tell you with no reservations that this is a quality piece of equipment built to last. This bike is awesome! It is REALLY heavy and stable. Not easy to get up or down stairs. We took it out of the box in the backyard. I could not be more happy with this purchase! QVC THANK-YOU! One heck of an investment. I have to say I LOVE this item and my wife says I am a very hard 'sell'.
The ONLY modification I needed to make was the pedals. I used to time trial and tour on a road bike and have fancy shoes that clip in. This bike comes with one sided 'rat-trap' strapped pedals. To improve a spectacular product they could replace the pedals with the double sided pedals that you see at Spinning Class. One side 'rat-traps' straps and the other side has the clips for the cycling shoes. Compared to the $1500. Spinning bike I was going to buy this bike is FANTASTIC VALUE . I am more than happy to shell out $40.00 for clip pedals. One other item I need to point out is that the toe clips are 'Medium' sized. I think they fit a size 10. My feet are 13's so the toe clips needed to be changed for when I'm not in my Sidi clip shoes.
These are minor gripes. I KNOW quality spinners as I've been around spinning for 17 years at least and have a $4800. road bike. This bike is a bare bones model with no gadgets but my Polar heart-rate monitor takes care of all that anyway .
One other item to know for us big people. There is a 275 limit on the bike I was not aware of when I ordered.
The front rollers make the bike somewhat manuverable. It is so heavy though that it is not exactly easy.
I'll update this review if I'm allowed to in 6 months and let you know how my pet 'BULL' holds up. I am sure it will outlast my lifetime.
The flywheel friction pads can be ordered direct form the factory that create friction for the flywheel. I find the saddle comfortable but I am used to these kind of skinny saddles. A padded covering may help some people.
One final thing. Do not forget to get the serial number form the outside of the carton. I cannot seem to find one on the bike itself but I'm sure I'm not looking in the right place.. You will need it if you need to call customer service.
Buy this bike! You will not be disappointed!
Rated 4 out of 5 by battlenutz34 Great but not Perfect
I love, love, love, love this product. The sit for this cycle however is torture. 5 seconds on it and my butt was sore to the point where i could not continue. I found a seat cover to help out and the one I got was no better. Still looking for a good one. The other draw back is that I can not get the sit to stay still. It twists and turns up and down depending on how you sit on it but in my 3 full workouts on this thing, I had great results.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 2001hawaii Heavy duty
The bike is heavy, solid. It was very easy to put together, took my 14 year old daughter and I about 15 minutes. It's actually easy to maneuver on to the wheels so you can move it somewhere else. By just turning a knob, you can have a lesurely, long ride or really make your muscles work. The only drawback, the seat. You can adjust it to tilt more forward or back but it's still very uncomfortable so I ordered a larger seat that is easy to slip on from Amazon (the seat has a five star rating too). We expect to put a lot of miles on the bike.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Shoppinista Not disappointed at all
This bike is awesome. It is definitely worth the money. The only con is that it does not come with calorie/speed monitor, but you can purchase a heart monitor or watch that has those features. I have purchased a couple of Spin DVDs on line and the workouts are awesome. I used this for about 3 times the first week, and immediately noticed a differenc in my body. I love this workout. It is fun and effective. It took about 20 minutes to put together and the bike has an all steel frame. It also arrived quick.(In about 3 days from the time I ordered it , it was on my door step). Hope you enjoy your purchased as much as I have. Its definitely worth the money.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Rupert Wonderful Bike!
The bike arrived in the box almost completely put together. It is incredibly heavy! I dont know how I got in in the front door alone, but somehow I did. Total time to put together = 20 minutes max. The bike is 100% solid! It is designed for a tall person. I am 6' tall, and it took a while for me to get the bike at the "perfect" settings for me, but it now is and I LOVE IT! This does not come with a workout DVD, so consider purchasing one when you order this bike.
The seat is so uncomfortable. I puchased a wider more comfy seat from my local bike store - it has done wonders. My coworkers always know when I worked out on this bike the night before, because they hear a little wimper when I sit down the next day! This bike will work you out!
Best of luck for great results. You wont regret purchasing this bike!
