I purchased this exercise bike from Argos two weeks ago and I paid £99.99 for it. The bike came presented in a huge cardboard box which was too heavy for me to lift so a kind store assistant helped me to my car. Inside the box was all necessary components, an instruction leaflet and the bolts, screws and tools needed for assembling the bike. The bike is white in colour and it has pink detailing, it's changed from the blue detailing which is shown in the above photo. I managed to put the bike together myself and it took just under two hours for me to do so. It wasn't too difficult and all of the accessories were present.
The bike itself is very strong and sturdy. You can easily adjust the seat and handlebars to a comfortable level for you. I'm quite tall at 5 ft. 8 but the bike is perfect for my height. The seat is quite comfortable and padded. I never ache from sitting on it and I do sometimes do an hour on the bike in one go. Again, the handlebars are also comfortable to hold so my hands never suffer from holding on tightly. The peddles can be adjusted too, which is great as I can peddle away in my slippers!
The bike isn't too noisy and it's not as large in size compared to some bikes on the market. The only downside is that it is really rather heavy. If I'm moving it from room to room I really struggle to lift it. However the bike is really doing its job and I am feeling the benefits. I've lost two pounds already and my legs feel a lot more toned and a lot tighter. You can adjust the resistance as you get fitter but I don't think I'm turning my dial up to number 8 just yet!
This is a good piece of fitness equipment for the price though and I am happy with it. I just hope it lasts!
A good alternative to the gym. I'm actually quite enjoying my new fitness regime!
