Good enough

published

It gets the job done, I use it under my desk at work to get some movement into my day and it works well enough. However there are a few things to consider before buying.
You will need to stick Velcro strips to the bottom to stop it from sliding, or you can position against a wall.
The resistance knob doesn't work, so it won't give you a hard work out but it is enough to get blood flowing.
The metal cranks get VERY hot after use, so you have to be sure not to knock it with your foot or touch it when your finished. But it does cool back down relatively quickly.
Overall, it does the job and its a pretty good price!

Purchased for $35.

It’s good for a start with price

published

I bought this for post ankle surgery. I just wanted gentle movement which suits me. I just use it with socks. You may have to rest it against a wall to stop movement but it does the trick. I’ll try Velcro as well.

Purchased in at Wadonga for $35.

Slides around on floor too much

published

Slides around on floor too much - makes it impossible to use properly. Very weak resistance even when at full strength. Not worth the low price tag. Definitely do not buy.

Good basic mini exercise bike

published

It's a good starting point for those wanting to increase their activity at home. Cheap, basic, and mostly comes set up in the box. A few complaints though: it's not very sturdy (definitely couldn't go too fast/be very rough with it), it slides around on higher resistance, the height doesn't adjust which can make posture awkward, the pedals don't hold my feet very well, and the manual was pretty useless (some parts have dodgy English, and while the bike comes with a little knob to increase resistance, it doesn't mention this knob/where to screw it in/how to use it anywhere in the manual). All in all in happy with it, but you definitely get what you pay for in this instance.

I love it!!!

published

I use this every night for 4 hours. I did have to stick some Velcro on the feet for traction so it wouldn't slide on the floor. I've lost 50+ kgs using this for 12 months

Purchased in at Kmart for $39.99.

Just slides all over the floor.

published

It just slides all over the floor as you attempt to use it, even if you pedal slowly, which makes it basically completely useless. The resistance doesn't work at all.

Purchased in at The CPAP Clinic Physical store for $30.

What an piece of junk.

published

Horrible, has resistance knob but it gives no resistance, the pedals are too small to fit regular gym shoes in. It wobbles when you use it and i have almost burned my hand 3 times as the metal bar gets so hot after you use it. It horrible
I wont return it but yes what a joke.

A few fixes by manufacturer & it can be a 5 star

published

1 star - price (tick),
1 star - weight (tick),
1/2 - star use (tick),
0 star - pedal resistance adjustment (no tick); none whatsoever. You get a knob preciously wrapped in big foam case, but it doesn’t work.
0 star - stability (no tick), regardless of type of surface the bike is on; tiles, carpet, rubber liner or a large arm chair wedged on the other end. The equipment would slide away while pedalling.
1/2 start - (tick) Kmart refunding. But I’m aware that the item now becomes landfill :(

I guess when you return an item it wouldn’t warrant any stars. But if you find a solution without having to outlay money to fix these last 2 items. Good on you!

A fantastic product

published

This mini exercise bike, is pure perfection, its light, but sturdy...easy to fit under a table & it just disappears there, so it doesn't stand out..easy to use & you can feel even with a little bit of use, the benefits...great too for people, who are unwell & don't really exercise much..I'd recommend it to one & all & if you use it in front of the TV, you don't even realise you're exercising & once you start using it, you want to keep using it..the cheaper price, is just a wonderful bonus.
