First, I am 6'5" and I weigh 250 lbs. I am able to set the bike to the highest settings and I can pedal effectively. When I get out of the saddle, my knees hit the handle bars. I don't need the gadgets. I used to ride a lot when I was younger, so I can pace myself fairly well. It is very sturdy and quiet, and I really don't have much to complain about with this machine. I bought it from Costco, so I know if I have any problems they will take it back.
Wonderful Spin Bike
Review by GF
"Great value for the price! It is a very quiet and very smooth spin bike. The seats and handlebars have nice adjustments. The only difference I have found in the bike I use at my club and this bike is the seat itself...my club spin bike has a higher end seat but that bike also costs almost double what I paid. (while assembling the bike I found the components to be standard bike components like the seat and pedals which I guess you could either purchase or swap from your own bike) The bike has a good warranty and the packaging included all tools needed and assembly took me about 20 minutes all said and done. I am very pleased with my Christmas gift to myself!"
Great spin Bike
Review by Tina
I have been looking for a while for a quality spin bike BUT did not want to spend a $1,000 on up and defeat the purpose of cancelling my gym membership to save money....all that to say I bought this and really like the bike as I already own a treadmill and my husband has an uopright bike. the spin has a very smooth ride, it was easy for my husband to assmeble and it is very quiet. I am 5'3" and the bike adjusts to my height. It is alos easy to move around as I wheel it in front of my tv when watching my spin videos. Great purchase and will update after a couple of months.
