This compact bike is ideal if you have limited space and have a small budget. It can be moved rather easily, as it weighs only 50 pounds. It operates quietly and is ideal for those who are beginners. It comes with a computer monitor that tracks time, speed, distance, and calories. This usually isn’t included in a bike under $200, though some customers have questioned the accuracy of it. This is a good bike for the price.

If you are looking for a strong, heavy-duty exercise bike then this one isn’t for you. The resistance won’t probably be challenging enough for advanced users. It also isn’t built to last long term. If you plan on using it frequently, then consider some other expensive models such as the ProForm 290 SPX, Stamina CPS 9200, and the Bladez H914.
When the exercise bike arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to see such a short instruction booklet. Within 20 minutes, the bike was ready to go. As expected, the bike is compact, fitting into a small corner in the bedroom. Additionally (and unexpectedly), the bike is surprising quiet. This makes it very easy to watch television or listen to music simultaneously. If you’re looking for a solid exercise bike requiring little space and creating little noise, this is the bike for you. – ConsumerJon (Gainesville, FL)
I am enjoying this bike a great deal. It doesn’t take up too much room, although the “stow away” aspect of it was not as impressive as I was hoping–when you fold it up, you save maybe 1 foot of room. But that’s okay because it’s still a pretty skinny device. I keep it in the closet and roll it out every day–I wouldn’t say it’s light (it’s about 40 lbs) but it’s not hard to maneuver. Assembly was not that difficult. All in all, a great bike for getting some exercise while doing other things. – infandum (Somerville, MA)
My biggest complaint about the bike is the tension setting. I’ve used the bike several times and I have to set it to the highest tension to get a decent workout. I’m a bit disappointed that I don’t have anything to work up to – and I’m even not an avid biker or exerciser! I’m 34 in good health and participate in low to moderate physical activity. I do not recommend this bike to people who are looking for gym-quality exercise bike. However, this is a great bike for people who are looking to get a little cardio exercise at home or who may be just getting back into exercising/physical activity. – April Bolton-Smith (Annandale, VA)
