A Satisfying Workout
Douglas from Palm Springs, CA – Verified Buyer
After an unhappy experience with an off-brand recumbent bike whose mainframe I had to replace 3 times due to bearing issues within 90 days, I decided to get something sturdier and better suited for more strenuous workouts, and opted for an upright bike instead. After combing the online reviews, it appeared that this Sunny model best struck the balance between thrift and reliability. I've had it for about three weeks now, ride it for about 45 minutes each day, and I don't regret my decision! It was easy to put together, and a good fit for my shorter size of 5'7, though it's no problem to adjust if you're taller. It's not completely silent, but it's not overly loud, either. It has a very solid frame and has been pretty much trouble-free since I got it. It doesn't have a computer, but I never found the computers on low-end stationary bikes to be that accurate, anyway, so I just watch a wall clock to keep track of my time. There are a few areas that could stand improvement: first, the way the seat attaches to the frame makes it prone to coming loose and shifting during the ride, so you need to keep tightening it every so often. It basically attaches over the frame and is tightened clamp style around it. I suppose it's done this way so you can have the option of replacing it with a better seat if you want, but it would be safer if the seat just came pre-attached to the frame, I think, because it's too easy for it to come loose during the ride and cause the rider to either fall off or injure their back. Another issue is that the seat itself is very hard. This, however, is easy to remedy simply by wrapping a towel around it. You could also buy a custom seat cover for it, though I've read that some customers found it hard to get one that fit correctly. So, I'm happy using the towel. One other area of potential concern is the resistance system. The resistance is created by a cloth pad on top of the flywheel which can be adjusted by a knob below the handlebars. The pad will surely wear out after a few months' of regular use, and there aren't any instructions on how to replace it when the time comes or how much the part might cost after the initial warranty runs out. I've also read that some people have had the pedals break off, but this hasn't been a problem for me, as I anticipated that possibility and made sure to fully tighten them into the sockets when I assembled it. I'm also careful not to apply too much pressure to them, just in case. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase and am satisfied with the quality of the workouts it provides.
Indoor Cycling Bike---Amazingly...Tough to Do!!!
Domenick from Bronx, NY – Verified Buyer
I have this tendency to watch the pros do something and think, I can do that. I bought this bike because I injured my foot and so running has not been an option for me---no more ten-twenty-mile runs---but I still eat. A lot. As though I were still running. And so I bought this bike since riding in the Bronx is too dangerous---because Bronx drivers are lunatics---and now in the comfort of my home I can cycle. And it's hard to do!!! Really hard. Like challenging hard. Forty-five minutes on this little red badboy---and I always mount thinking I'll do an hour or so---and I am dying. It's so much work. And the worst part is that---and this should be no surprise---you actually do not move on this bike. So there is no breeze. At all. And so one dismounts dripping. Which is a good thing, I supposed. But I do so miss the great outdoors. But at least I am home and not surrounded by the meatheads and rude gymgoers, right? It's my bike. The price is amazing. And it's also so easy to put together that I did it alone and the bike has yet to fall to pieces on me. Yes, you should buy this---so long as you are not over 220 pounds, that is.
Great for the price!
Tom from Hallandale Beach, FL
This is a sturdy, well made, basic exercise bike. A bargain at the regular price and a steal when it is on sale. I found the assembly very easy, even if you are not mechanically inclined, this should not be too difficult. The seat is basic and works well for me, but for my wife less so. Even for high quality seats, most bike shops will tell you need 10 hours of seat time to adjust, and as others have mentioned it is changeable. Also it would help to read up on how to adjust the seat so that your sit bones take most of the weight. I would also suggest, with the money you save buying this bike, buy a heart rate monitor so you keep your work rate in the correct zone for the best and safest results. I was very happy with this purchase and enjoy using this on rainy days or early morning workouts. It is a five star bike for price point but I rate it as 4 overall so that some people won't think they are getting Mercedes for the price of a Hyundai. I have seen prettier and more cheaply made bikes go for a lot more money. I would recommend (and have) to a friend. Ride and enjoy.
Product Matches description and performs as delivered
Thomas from Elmwood Park, IL – Verified Buyer
Received this a few days ago so this in on the initial few days of use. So far so good. I ride about 100-150miles a week during spring-summer in IL. Picked this up as an alternative to a bike stand for the winter. So not only I could use it but my family as well. I am 6'2 220lbs and would be at about the largest frame person that should use this bike. My daughter is 5'3 105lbs and can ride no problem as well. (so decent size range). Bike is smooth and quiet. Quite comparable to what local Gym (LA Fitness/Ballys) has in their Rotate room. There is no tracking of distance or anything on this bike it is a bare bike. I am just manually adjusting the resistance as I like for my ride style and track the time I am riding on my own. Pros: Great value, setup in about 20min, easy use. Cons: Seat is so-so, but will accept any bicycle seat you like.
Theresa from Ellicott City, MD – Verified Buyer
The seat is comfortable and the fly wheel moves smoothly and quietly. I was able to assemble most of the bike on my own, but had a moderate amount of trouble getting the seat on and needed three pairs of hands to do so successfully. So I recommend you have help nearby when you get to this part. You will also need help getting the box into your house because it is extremely heavy. I love that my two children can use the bike, because the seat adjusts low enough for them. My four star rating is due to the difficulty mounting the seat to the frame, but once assembled I definitely recommend this product.
Sturdy, solid bike
Joel from California – Verified Buyer
Bike Came, so far have found it to be very sturdy in that it doesnt rock from side to side even when really hammering it. It has sufficient weight to the flywheel to provide a good workout and really workup a sweat. Its very easy to transport around the house.. I often drag it in front of the TV for some Game of Thrones and put it out of the way when I'm done. One gripe I have.. the seat is rock hard..
Good Price for Such Quality
Charles from Mobile, AL – Verified Buyer– Top 1000 Reviewer
Very well made bike. Similar bikes sell for more. This product is relatively quiet and the adjustable resistances are adequate. Note that the bike has a maximum weight limit of 220 lbs. This is less than would be expected for a bike of this type.
The Nite Rider from Boulder, CO
I'm a 6'3" -155 pound BMX rider and was initially concerned about the size and stability of the bike. It's very adjustable and sturdy and has a small "footprint". I don't like stirrups so I took those off. I like the small pedals, they stay in the arch of my foot, unlike a platform style pedal. The pedals would be easy to replace if you chose to. If I stand up to pedal, the cranks make a slight creaking noise everytime the right side goes down, other than that it's very quiet. When it arrived , the box was in sad shape, but I opened it anyway and was supprised to find the bike was fine. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the tension device, it's some kind of felt pad that gets smelly if it gets really hot and it puts out a bit of lint or dust. Not real great when gasping for air. The upside is that if you are even slightly mechanically inclined, it's easy to replace that pad with a rare earth magnet and still maintain adjustability.
Kaitlyn from BRIDGEPORT, CT – Verified Buyer
I don't know too much about the quality of one Rotating bike over another, but this was easy to assemble and is a smooth, stable ride. I've had it for a few months now and I love it. The seat is a little uncomfortable, but that comes with the territory.
Erica from Waterford, CT – Verified Buyer
This is a great bike for beginners or those who do not want to take the plunge & spend hundreds of dollars. It's not fancy, but it gets the job done. The shipping was quick. It was missing a bolt when it arrived but both Wayfair & Sunny Health & Fitness have responded quickly to send a replacement. I read the reviews about the bike being great for shorter people. It works for taller people, also. I'm 5'10" & the seat can go higher. I love it...no regrets so far.
