Nice product with limitations
Trip from Albuquerque, NM
Generally, I use this product in a modified manner. First, as a recumbent bike, it works pretty well, and the eight (8) levels of resistance can give your legs a pretty good workout. The front section, though, could be about a 1/2-inch narrower, because sometimes I feel my Knees rub against the console. Second, as a Rower, if I set the seat to glide, I found these two primary problems: I found my knees started to hurt, because the Wayfair don't allow for any foot movement left or right (due to the ridge that runs around the heel section of the foot rest), and this caused sort of a bow-legged effect when I was gliding up and down on the glide path. Additionally, when pulling on the rowing handle, which is set at the top of the front flywheel section, the very front end would pop off the ground and the stabilizing bar under the glide path would move around a lot. This made the experience a bit uncomfortable. BUT ... I modified how I use this product. I set the seat to the fully extended position for the recumbent bike (allowing about a 1-2" bend in my knees) and locked it into place, which also allows me to place my feet on the front stabilizer legs when I want to use the Rower capability. This doesn't allow for a full extension of the back during the pull on the row (maybe 70%), but now, I can alternate between the recumbent bike and the rower during an exercise routine. The front end is very stable, and I get a great workout for both the lower and upper body. The rower particularly works out the arms. To actually use the machine for the upper-body exercises like they market the product, I have to stand at the front of the machine and face toward the seat (basically, the opposite side of the machine as they picture), and keep my feet on the stabilizing legs. Otherwise, if I do it from the side shown in the pictures, the front end, once again, pops off the ground. Quite frankly, I don't use the machine for this purpose. One additional benefit, though ... is when the glider/seat is in the upright position, it functions as a great support for many stretching exercises. I even use this for that purpose, alone, when I am using my other exercise equipment. If my fitness level and workout expectations were of an advanced or elite level ... this machine may not be for you. If you're like me, and are not concerned with extreme fitness ... then as a multi-functional piece of equipment, I think it is decent. All-in-all, with the modification I've made and described above to the way I use it, I am pleased with the machine.
Quality exercise equipment

I like the bike/rower. The only problem I have is my feet keep coming out of the peddles when rowing.
good for the money

It is a very versatile piece if equipment. I do really like it & QQ use it a lot. The negatives we would say is that the display should be electric not battery, assembly instructions should be a little clearer, shoe straps do not fit my husband (size 13 wide) and his shoes won't fit. He has to ride barefoot.
