Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by If you need an exercise bike there is not much wrong with this. I ordered a C1 but there were delays and JL upgraded me to a C3 at no extra cost, which was nice. It has a battery somewhere which you recharge by pedalling so there is no need to have the power cable on the floor. The other differences from the C1 are trivial. Exercise bikes are traditionally left to gather dust, so don't buy a cheap one, you won't use it. This does have the sturdiness and quiet operation found in the top end commercial stuff. It also has the same problems, a fat 29cm wide seat which has no angle adjustment and a height adjuster in one inch steps. If you have ever been a sports cyclist, you will find this stifling, you can't get the perfect position. If you can stand this it works well, no rattles or wobbles. There is a screen with many programs to follow but I just use the basic one and change the resistance to suit how I feel. There are electrical detectors in the handlebars, and a chest strap so you get heart rate readouts. Neither of these work for me, though my wife gets a reading and so did the bloke who did some installation work. I have to take my own pulse readings in the old biological way while pedalling. The delivery and installation were slick, but a part was missing and two more visits were necessary to find and fit this connector. It is a large dark object which has a presence in the room, not a yoga mat you can put away, so be prepared to accept that long term. 11 June 2015
