Rated 5 out of 5 by Gibbyup What I Wanted
I've had my new spin bike for a couple days now and have ridden three times. The bike is solid, the flywheel and pedal actions are nice and smooth. I was able to put it together in about 20 minutes, with no help from hubby! This bike is what I was hoping for, comparable to what I used to ride when I taught classes in the gym.
That being said, it's been many years since I taught spin, and just as long since I've done any type of bike riding. I am experiencing the saddle-soreness that a number of others have mentioned. I will say that I know from experience, this saddle is very similar to what you get on a typical road bike. Yes, it takes a while to get accustomed to the pressure on your sits bones. But that will come. Also, as you build strength in your legs and your core, you'll notice you're not feeling as much pressure in the saddle. I am looking forward to experiencing these fitness gains myself! As of today, my "sit area" is tender :)
Overall: Love it! I remember why I enjoyed spinning so much!

I purchased this bike after about 6 months of research. I was a little afraid, but did it. I was in need of a bike that I could use at home so I would no longer have to join a cycling club. Well guess what? The quality is awesome! I really can't see the difference between this bike and the one I use at the club. It is sturdy, strong, and built extremely well. It was so easy to put together and trust me, I am not a handy-dandy DIY chic at all. I must admit, it was heavy to move, so I moved the base first, step by step...and assembled in my bedroom. Once assembled, I was able to move from location to location with ease because of the wheels. Also the pedals can be used with regular athletic shoes or cycling shoes. It is a beauty. I used it the same day...and cranked out a 20 minute ride doing all my new tricks... Love it! I wish I hadn't waited so long to purchase.
