A decent investment, with a few issues.
christopher from Vail, AZ – Verified Buyer
The bike is small, lightweight, easy to assemble, and fulfills its purpose in letting me get a little physical work in on the side. While well constructed, there do seem to be some issues with quality control. My fly weel is mounted about three degrees leaning to the left, and the bend on the right pedal arm is bent inward slightly. These are just little things, the only real issue I have is the tension strap and its controlling knob dont seem to have much effect on the machine. It also seemed like all the tension was on the right foots downward cycle, but that seems to have eased up with use. Is it an amazing machine? No. Was it worth the cost? For me, Yes. If you want a real quality machine, look elsewhere.
Nice addition to regular workouts
Sherri from Liberty, TX – Verified Buyer
This works well as an addition to my other workouts. It's something I can do while watching TV or reading. It is quiet and I love how I can adjust the tension on it. The digital readout does not always work, but I usually set a timer for how long I want to pedal. I also like that I can exercise my arms as well.
Great Gift for Elderly Relatives
Diana from Tampa, FL – Verified Buyer
I've purchased two of these mini bikes for family members that are elderly and fall-risks. This tool gives them the chance to keep their legs moving and build muscle strength while remaining seated. It also helps with their arm strength when placed on a table in front of them. This is a MUST for anyone who is trying to stay active, regardless of their age and abilities.

This is a neat little piece of equipment. Beware that after about 2 weeks after breaking it in you have to tighten the tension belt on the inside. I had my husband do it and it really gives you a work out now. Thanks.
Jean from Nashua, NH – Verified Buyer
This product exceeded expectations. Sturdy, portable. Easily adaptable for arm and leg exercises. Would recommend without hesitation.
Takes up no room!
Beverley from Buckeye, AZ – Verified Buyer
This is perfectly priced and perfect for those who don't want to take up a lot of room. Yes, it moves if not braced by a couch or chair but that is certainly easy. Then you can carry it with one hand and put it in a closet when not in use. Unlike other large exercise equipment that ends up in the garage and eventually in a yard sale. So, save money, save space and when you quit working out, like we all do, you aren't out big bucks and don't have a giant piece of equipment to haul to the garage.
Love this Mini Bike!
Donna from Evans, GA
I love this mini bike. It has allowed me to step up my daily workout. I use the treadmill for 40 minutes, then the bike for 20. I am definitely seeing some results. The great thing is it does not take up much room - and you can sit in a chair and watch TV or read. I am so glad I ordered it and would definitely recommend to a friend!
Susan from Colorado Springs, CO – Verified Buyer
The mini bike is well built and easy to use. I like that it has a built-in computer. It 's a handy way to keep track of time and calories expended,
Great Excersizer for Elderly
Sheila from La Grange, TX – Verified Buyer
My dad, who is physically impaired, can sit and use this minibike to strengthen his legs and core. He is building up his strength and at 86 years old he can use it for 30 minutes at a time! I am so impressed. Plus the weight on this gives more stability.
Kaye from Hooks, TX – Verified Buyer
I really like this product. The only suggestion would be is to add nonskid material on the bottom. I have all tile floors and I have difficulty keeping it in place. I had to place on a small rug and place it next to an unmovable object or it will slide all over the place.
