This unit features an adjustable seat, a 22-pound flywheel, smooth chain drive, adjustable resistance, and heavy duty steel frame and crank assembly.
Don’t let the low price fool you. The price is the only thing “flimsy” about this rugged exercise bike. This unit looks great, performs quietly, and delivers an exceptional cycling experience.
Fast Assembly, No Worthless Gadgets
You will want to get on the bike and ride as soon as possible. Sunny Health and Fitness feels your excitement and has made assembly quick and easy. All the tools needed are included. The process if so easy, even a child could figure it out without instructions. You will be on the bike and cycling your way to better health in under thirty minutes flat.
This bike ships with an LCD monitor. This will help you track time, calories burned, speed and distance. Your workouts are far more effective when you track your progress on a regular basis.
Some units offer loads of electronic gadgetry that has more to do with boosting the price than providing an effective cycling session that builds speed, endurance, muscle power, and cardiovascular health benefits (check latest prices at amazon.com).
Highly Effective, Quiet Cardio Workouts
Runners who bought this model for rainy days report that it delivers as much cardio resistance as they get when running outdoors. It is in fact the perfect solution for those days when getting outside is just not possible.
This unit is perfect for apartment dwellers and those living with family members who might be disturbed by sounds from a standard exercise bike. The chain drive and flywheel are whisper quiet. Cycling mats are available, but this unit is so quiet.
Some cyclists report that they watch television or listen to music and cannot hear the bike. Compare that to the typical crunch, grind squeal of a standard exercise bike.
Gentle on the Body Parts
Speaking of old school exercise bikes, one source of noise is the up and down pumping action that is not present with a proper indoor bike. The flywheel creates aggressive inertia which translates into a smooth, 360 degree pedal action. This prevents the rider from bouncing in the seat and reduces the wear and tear on the knees, ankles, tendons, ligaments, and butt.
Riders find the comfortable seat allows them to enjoy even the longest rides without undue stress and strain on their bottoms. The wider-than-average seat accommodates those who are looking to remove a few pounds of excess cellulite from the derriere.
Small but Awesome, Except for Tall Riders
The unit is easily portable weighing in at less than 70 pounds with a shipping weight of about 70 pounds. Maximum rider weight for this unit is about 240 pounds. Dimensions are 30.7 x .4.8 x 48.4 inches.
Despite its smaller size, this unit can withstand hours of use and thousands of miles of indoor cycling adventure. This unit rolls smoothly over solid or carpeted floors, making it a pleasure to move from room to room as needed.
Taller riders (over 6 foot) have reported the bike is not to their liking simply because of the fit. Despite the seat adjustability, this unit does not allow for the extension they are used to. Keep in mind, however, that a proper leg extension on a stationary bike should keep the knee bent between 5 and 20 degrees. A full knee lockout is extremely bad and puts the knee at risk for injury.
