Sit-N-Cycle Low Resistance Aerobic Trainer by Smooth Fitness
The seat is not soft like they say and if it had some kind of handles on the sides it would help, but the seat is very uncomfortable and slippery. The sit and cycle needs more work and should have a little more resistances. a good idea that needs more improvements
No tension adjustment
This product did not take 10 minutes to assembly as stated in the presentation on air. It is bulky and heavy. The presentation showed a man carrying it up the stairs. It probably would be a more realistic picture if a petite host was carrying it up the stairs as that would show what we would be up against. The one I received doesn't adjust tension when the knob is turned. I noticed that my neck begins to ache after being on it about 4 minutes. Will return it.
A good idea but not quite there yet
I was looking for an exercise bike but hadn't found one that would fit in my home until the Sit-N-cycle. Good points: it is compact, it was simple to assemble, The seat is comfortable , It would be good to use if one only needed to exercise one's knees.
Sour points: The tension cannot be increased. , The length from seat to pedals seems very short and cannot be lengthened, Seated on it feels unsteady since there is nowhere to place one's hands.
Awkward and hard to balance.
This is a great idea. Very compact and nicely made. However, it's very difficult to sit on. You almost need to hold on to something so that you don't lose your balance and fall forward. Very awkward to use.
I bought this to use at my office unfortunately it doesn't offer any resistance. It's comfy and the pink color is pretty but not worth the price. It was easy to assemble; I will be taking it apart and returning it. I wanted this to be the perfect office companion but it needs to have a few tweets in the resistance before it is going to be worth the space. I hope they can make some changes and market it again!
I love my Sit-N-Cycle!
I had been shopping for an exercise bike, but I knew that I needed one that took up very little space. Well, this fits the bill! Assembly was quick and easy. It is lightweight, but it's got substance. It takes up very little space and is easily stored. I use it while watching TV or movies. I can adjust the tension on the pedals to make the workout more challenging and burn more calories. The seat is large and comfortable. I can easily keep my balance. It is a great value for the money. I would highly recommend it!
I had to assemble this myself as my husband is disabled. It took an hour and lots of struggle. As I got to the pedals, I discovered that both were marked for the left side. I have made numerous calls to the company, but so far, after 3 weeks, the pedals have not arrived. I will now have to disassemble and take it to UPS to return. I think I should get my S&H returned for all the trouble it's been. Not a happy peddler !
Great! Great! Great!
I love, love, love this Sit-N-Cycle! Easy to assemble - less than 30 minutes. This is perfect. I used it right away. No problems with the pedals. No jerky paddling. It was easy to stay on the seat. Seat feels like regular bike seats. Perfect for getting me off the couch and moving. I love it.
like all but the seat
I don't understand the people that say assembly is difficult..I thought it was one of the easiest things I've ever assembled without help from my husband..quick, clearly marked, all tools supplied. I use it every night and have not had problems with feet falling off pedals ...but ,yes, they could be better. I have no problem balancing and feel it may help balance ..I only think the seat needs improvement..it is way too hard to be comfortable...maybe a "cushion" cover could be designed to add to it...It is too hard a type of plastic...
love this for the whole family
I have been looking for something like this for my son, he is always on XBox so I thought this would be perfect. He has been using it. I could not be happier.
Love This Bike
I assembled bike by myself and truly enjoy my daily morning bike ride.
This is the best exercise equipment I have ever purchased and I would recommend it to others who do not enjoy huffing, puffing, sweating and turning red in face :)
Still using the cycle
Very easy to assemble. Light weight with the wheels it's easy to move around. The seat took a little getting used to, it needs more padding rather hard. Pedals could be a little bigger but I'm either in flip flops, slippers or bear foot so it doesn't matter. I use this more than any other exercise bike or equipment I've bought so far. It's in my living room which is small and I've sat and cycled for 1/2 hour or more. In jeans I do have a tendency to slip on the seat so I changed to leggings and no issues. Not having handlebars can be odd for some but I really like it as it forces me to sit up straight instead of slouch which does work some back muscles. Over all I'm happy with my purchase.
