This machine is wonderful! From the easy assembly to the economic footprint. The workout is fun and I feel the difference every day! I warm up with the Rodeo and move to Pilates and finish with the Rodeo. My knees are very bad and this is equipment that I can actually use! Thanks for bringing it to us, QVC.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Zip2 An exercise machine I actually use and enjoy!
> My son and I set this up two days ago. It was easier than I expected (I'm not the most talented assembling items).
> I totally agree that the seat is hard, both on my bum and upper back thighs. I have a beach towel folded several times as a cushion but just purchased another cushion that I think will help.
> I really enjoy using this machine. I have back, hip and ankle problems and so I'm starting off slowly (5 min x 4 day) and today was on for 10 min. When I push down I really tighten my abs (hoping for a stronger work out).
> Because I'm just sitting and its fairly quiet, I can catch up on my tv shows, read a book or do my on-line games. I do build a sweat so I know something is working. I expect it will take several weeks before I actually see results, but that is normal when beginning a workout. But I do feel the movement is good for my lower back and am happy that the machines movement doesn't bother my back, hip, or ankle.
> It's a fairly compact machine, so I have it in the corner of my family room. It's not obvious. It doesn't weigh too much -- I can pick it up and move it around by myself.
> My only real problem is getting on the machine -- my 14 year old son is always on it!
I hope this info helps.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kb97230 makes exercise fun
Love this machine. Have had it a couple of weeks and look forward to exercise time everyday. Worked up to 15 to 20 minutes a day and have no problem sticking with this machine. I do agree with the seat issue. Looked on line at LTD Commodities for the seat cushion but did not find the one the other reviewer was talking about. I have had to use a pillow a couple of time because it is a little hard on the backside. If you have a cushioned seat to cover the hard one, I for one would purchase it!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cd SEAT UNCOMFORTABLE
Easy setup. The video has more info. Seat is hard which prevents me from staying on longer. Would like more info on seat cushion that a reviewer purchased.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A in TN I think it will work
I am over 60. My knees prevent me from walking or running. I bought this to strengthen my core, increase my balance and reduce my chance of falls. I do two 10 minute sessions 5 days a week with an average of 45 revolutions per minute.
I can already see it is working. It is hard on your behind but no worse than any other bicycle seat so 10 minute sessions is about all you can do. No pain - no gain.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ccope Love it!
First time writing a review, but after receiving my Rodeo Core I just could not help myself. I am in love with this product. Barely any assembly required, not even sure it qualifies to be called assembly, I had it up and "running" in about 10 minutes and I was not rushing. Fun exercise, with enough tension to accomplish something but not too stressful. Others have mentioned the uncomfortable seat, which I did not notice on my first use, may be an issue later, but not yet. Love the small footprint, compared to other exercise equipment this is a nice change, can also be easily stored or relocated. Thank you US JACLEAN and QVC!
Rated 4 out of 5 by qvcphan Very Happy With This Item
When I saw this exerciser, I knew I had to give it a try. I wanted something that would work my legs in a way other machines did not, and this is great! Minor assembly, no issues there. The only thing that could use improvement is the seat! Saw the same item reviewed on another website and a reviewer suggested adding a seat cushion found at LTD Commodities. I ordered that cushion and it really adds a level of comfort. Overall, I'm very pleased with this machine.

While this is a good concept it is very painful to ride. Had to return.
