I have been doing indoor cycling for a little while now and I have been a long time cyclist. This bike is a no frills bike for sure but in the end that is how I like it. I have been in charge of repairing the cycles at the local health club for two years now and I can tell you this bike will hold up just as well as any of those $1000 bikes out there. Sure the chain makes a bit more noise than belts. Not like it is all that loud anyway. Chains don't slip like warn belts. And who cares just turn up the radio. I like the pinch type friction pads over the press down type as well. The make for better control and longer bearing life. The bike was easy to assemble and comes with everything you need including the tools. I didn't use the pedal that came with it as I need clip-less pedals. they don't look like the best quality but the will Rotate out just fine. the seat is not the greatest. for the bulk of people only doing 30-45 min workouts it will be fine. If you do the 4-5 hour workouts like my wife...get another seat. The fly wheel is very smooth and friction control has a rapid ramp up. It is not a deal breaker but could get annoying for some. Likely needs some break in and it will be fine. I like the rapid ramp up but most don't. the platform is very stable and sturdy. The transport wheels are in a a little bit high place making the bike hard to transport around unless you tip it really far. Not a problem for me but if you are small and/or not very strong it could cause an accident while moving it. There is no micro adaptability to make for the absolute perfect fit. there is plenty of adaptability and 99% or people don't know how to fit their bike right anyway. Fits me just fine. Overall for the price paid it is a great value. Sure there are things that can be done better but those will cost you loads more money and in the end don't give you a better workout. Oh and no place to put a water bottle. No big deal just get a cage and zip-tie or glue it to the frame. Problem solved and hundreds cheaper. bottom line, if you want a good workout and don't want to spend tons of money get this bike. You want a high-tech, gadgets, marketing dribble about what makes a better ride, and art forms instead of the workout, buy something else.
Impressive for the price

The bike shipped in without any damage. The box looked bad (big gash and a hole) when delivered, but the packing was excellent, so damage was avoided. My husband assembled it for me without any problems, as well...he thought the directions were good and made it relatively easy. It took him about 30 minutes. I am 5'5" with 30"-31" legs and l weigh around 130 if anyone reading this can relate to my size. The only reason I'm giving this 4 vs. 5 stars is because as everyone before me has mentioned, the seat is VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. We strapped a thick piece of foam to it and I'm actually going to buy a gel seat cover when I get around to it. I do wear the padded shorts and they are not enough to provide the necessary comfort. I do wish the actual seat could be better manipulated for my leg length and find the holes are not positioned quite right for the height I need...however, I can manage. The most I've ridden so far is 45 minutes. I tend to ride 30 minutes or less, as I don't feel like pushing my 59 year old body too much. I'm a walker, so my legs are strong to begin with. I keep the bike in front of the T.V. and use it when our weather isn't good for walking, so it's perfect for my needs. My son feels I got a great deal on this bike. He's 6'3" and checked it out, thinking it was a much more expensive bike. He knows more about them than I do (he's 27) so I'll take his word for it. I got a good deal and it's exactly what I need to fill for my usual routine and working out. I know it will get good use at our home. The wheels allow for me to move it on my own, and I'm not a strong person...so I can recommend this in all aspects except for the seat. I don't need a bike with lots of bells and whistles...and this one will serve me well for a long time. Pros: Great value, very sturdy and well balanced Cons: uncomfortable seat...but for the price of the bike, buying a new seat isn't a big deal
Great product..couldn't be happier!

I received my Rotate cycle yesterday evening, safely delivered at my front door. The packaging was excellent and the outer box was undamaged. The cycle was easily assembled in no time at all and the instructions were easy to understand and follow. I used the cycle this evening and I must say, having been taking Rotating classes for years I was unsure that this bike would stand up to the quality that I have been used to at the gym. I was a bit reluctant to order it originally, for fear that it would be a "cheap version" . It turns out that this cycle is a GREAT version for it's value. I felt very secure riding it, rode steady and felt very sturdy, along with all parts working well. Some of the reviews mentioned that it made a noise when ridden...I could hear the sound of the fly wheel in the front "Rotating" but barely noticed it since I was watching a movie while ridding it. The ride felt very smooth, too! There are also maintenance suggestions supplied in the included manual (don't have to go online to download it...YAYYY!) and it includes directions for if and/or when you will need to replace the break pads on it. I am going to try to get clips for the pedals, since I do have Rotating shoes...would prefer to "clip in" for the ride. In my opinion, you will not be disappointed if you order this cycle. Read the other review, as I did, and be the judge.
Great Product for the Price!!!

I am a avid Rotator at my gym, but with my job it is sometimes impossible to make a Rotating class. I have shopped in stores for a Rotating bike, but those bikes seemed cheap and not ideal compared to the bikes at my gym. I read the reviews here for this model and decided to order one for myself so I can Rotate according to my schedule. The bike was at my house within a week and very easy to assemble. I absolutely love this bike....it is very smooth and gets the job done! For the price and quality, you can not beat this deal! I would highly recommend this bike to anyone. searching for a nice Rotating bike at such a reasonable price!
Great Value - Nice Bike
Gary from Sandwich, IL – Verified Buyer
This is my first Rotate bike and after reading many reviews, I was most concerned with noise level and overall sturdiness. Well, this bike is extremely quiet and extremely sturdy. I am 6 feet and about 200 lbs and the bike doesn't so much as wobble. I have it on a carpeted surface with concrete floor. Going SLOW, it took me 20 minutes to assemble. I am very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend this Sunny bike.
Rotating Bike is Great
Greta from Cincinnati, OH – Verified Buyer– Top 100 Reviewer
This is a great indoor Rotate bike for anyone looking to exercise at home. It's small and fits into my living room so I can watch TV and workout. I love it. It's quiet and easy to use. It was easy to put together and I love it. Don't hesitate with this purchase. It's well worth the money if you want a good Rotate bike. Just like what you'd use at a gym.
Chiquita from Chelsea, MI – Verified Buyer
This item was easy to put together. It is comfortable and very sturdy. My only complaint would be that the handle bars and seat adjustments are very tight and difficult to move. That's the only reason I couldn't give it 5 days. Other than those things, it's a great home bike at a great price.
Love this bike
beth from Brentwood, NY – Verified Buyer
I love this bike. I lost a ton of weight using this bike 3 days a week. It wasn't too hard to put together by myself. the only problem was the seat, it hurts but you get used to it. I purchased an additional padded cushion that fits the bike.
Cheryl from Morro Bay, CA – Verified Buyer
This exercise bike is very sturdy and mechanically sound. After knee surgery I was able to do my own physical therapy at home. Easy to assemble, adjust, and transport. I highly recommend this bike for anyone wanting a high quality/affordable exercise bike.
Yvette from Sunrise, FL – Verified Buyer
Best decision I ever made. This is an awesome bike for anyone who is serious about Rotating. Easy to put together and you can replace the pedals with the professional clip in ones. Highly recommend.
