Are you looking to get in shape without going to the gym? If you said, yes then maybe this your answer to your home gym. No membership, no monthly fee, and no annual fee, to your local gym. I did some research and found a reasonable price on a new recumbent exercise bicycle. There are many out there in the marketplace. Prices range from $120 – $900+.

Last year, I purchased my new exercise bike from eBay seller from the US. They shipped it and I received within six days via Federal Express on my doorstep. If you are looking for the exact product that I purchased then do a search on eBay for “Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike Ultra Cycling Bicycle Fitness Equipment MS.” I could not wait to start to exercise again and get in shape.

When ordering this exercise bike please remember that it is unassembled in a heavy box. This box weights roughly forty pounds. It might take two people to move it up steps in your house or apartment. It will fit in most vehicles with the seat down or in a large trunk. The shipping box measures 31.5 x 22.5 x 13 inches.

Once you get everything out of the box, it will need to be put together. Assembling this exercise bike will take an individual approximately 1-2 hours to put together. The exercise bike directions were very simple to figure out. If you can interpret several product diagrams than you can assemble this bike. There were very few written instructions on what part to put together. All the directions have diagrams figures with a small amount of text. Inside the owner’s manual there isn’t a listed manufacturer if you have any questions or problems. Assemble at your own risk.

The only problem on the directions was trying to mount the seat to the bottom support. The technical writer forgot to explain how to mount the seat. However, I figured it out on mine own.

One problem I encountered was a clanging sound when the pedals were moving. It is believe that it was sometime in the gears. I removed the casing to investigate where this noise was coming from. I could not find anything wrong with the mechanical components on this bike. I will continue to exercise with this bike until it stops working all together.

Overall, it seems like a solid exercise bike. The only thing I would add is a cup holder and more padding for the seat. It is unknown if other consumers will have the same problem as myself. This is something you will have to make a decision on. Good Luck.
