    First – all these consumer bikes are made by the same company in China and branded. I’ve had 7 in the past 10 years from different companies. Reebok, Stamina, Sports Authority house brand, Target… it doesn’t matter. They’re all the same basic construction, come with the same little shrink wrapped tools, the front and back supports go on the same; I can put these together in my sleep. You can even interchange the parts. The only difference are the computers.

    They will all die in 1-2 years if you use them every day.

    I use mine 20 miles a day – it doesn’t matter if it’s a $150 model or a $700 model, they die in under two years. Pulse monitor? Rusts out or breaks in ~4 months. Straps on the pedals? Break in 3-9 months. Plastic drive belt? Minor damage in 6-9 months, fatal damage in 12-24 months that requires replacement, since you can’t fix them. These things even come with a warning that if you actually try to use them seriously you could suffer ‘severe injury or fatality.’ They’re cheap consumer crap and they expect you to stop using it and turn it into a clothes rack.

    So you might as well get a cheap one with good features and expect to replace it. This one works well enough and is quite quiet, but is lacking several features you’d expect for a $200 model (and I should have checked for first):
    * Worst of all, no pedal straps. If your foot ever slips, the pedal goes upside down and you need to come to a halt and resync. After one night of this I just took the pedals I saved off my old ones and used them instead.
    * You can’t see your speed and distance at the same time.
    * The timeout before the computer resets everything if you don’t pedal is quite short compared to other models. Need to rush to the kitchen or computer or phone? Better hurry, or at least remember how far you’d gone.
    * No drink holder. A little thing, but you’ll need something else for your water bottle.
    * The base is on the narrow side (there seem to be two common sizes), so if you get serious it rocks from side to side a bit compared to the wider ones.
    * If you’re 6′(I am) or over, the seat adjusts fine, but the handlebars are then very low. The configuration pictured is for a midget or child.

    So this will work for a year till it breaks, but I’ve had a $150 model from Sports Authority that was much better, and next time I’ll remember again what to look for.

    I received this bike for a Christmas present. I had asked for it specifically after reading favorable reviews. (and, of course, based on the price!) It was pleasantly easy for my husband and I to put together and I jumped on it right away. The bike is quiet, the seat adjusts from very high to very low, even lower than what I need (I am 5’2″), and it feels sturdy. The battery powered screen has a place for your pulse, calories burned, time, miles, and speed. This bike is quiet enough to sit and watch tv while riding and you can hear your show just fine. My butt did get a little sore from the seat, but I got used to it. The bike is easy to move around with the wheels, however it does stay in place once you put it down. I recommend to anyone looking for an affordable exercise bike.
