Perfect for all levels of fitness
By Kay (Ohio) on Dec 3, 2011
Received the bike about 3 weeks ago and have been enjoying it immensely! The pedal motion is incredibly smooth with a wide range of resistance. The adjusts easily; water bottle holder in exactly the right place and it is so easy to use, there are no more "excuses". I love being able plug in my iP... (Read more)

73 yr old ... Bike went together well... all parts and pieces counted... holes lined up, threads fit etc... only issue was dropping a screw down into the wheel housing ... but a $5 mag pick up from Home Depot fixed that. With a little thought and a couple props .. was able to put together by myself.... (Read more)
Nice so far
By old but trying to work out (Flint Michigan) on Dec 15, 2011
The bike went together ok except for the front bottom leg wouldn't line up. Frame was bent at the factory. Had to bend the part that the bolt passings through to get it to come together. Still couldn't tighten up all the way. Wire harness to connect to the control modual fraided and partly cut. St... (Read more)

A friend and I put it together with no problems in 1 1/2 hr. My only complaint with that is that only after completed did I realize the serial number is on the very bottom of the bike - please, please change that. The ride is very smooth. Excellent adjustability on tension. It has way more "prog... (Read more)
Love the bike, hate the seat
By GA boy (Atlanta) on Feb 3, 2012
Love the bike and it's many features, but the seat is very uncomfortable. It would be great if it were not so hard and would adjust to lean back a little.
It is easy to watch tv, read or listen to ipod while riding. I find it much better than a regular exercise bike.
Best Quality I found
By keninaz (Prescott, AZ) on Apr 22, 2012
I have a very bad lower back, not bad enough for surgery, but the pain is complicated by diabetic neuropathy which increase pain levels.
My doctor told my that I needed exercise which is hard to get when you cannot walk very far and he recommended I try a recumbent bike.
So I went from store to st... (Read more)
Touring the World on a bike
By Maryland55 (Baltimore MD) on May 20, 2012
When I first sat on the machine to examine the screen and to make sure I knew where everything was, my first thought was that the seat was too small for my big butt. During my first session, I realized that it was a perfect size. My legs could move smoothly during the entire session. In addition ... (Read more)
Great Product TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE
By Crystal (NY) on Jun 5, 2012
Product itself if highly recommended and easily assembled. I had an issue with the bike coming without a hardward kit (screws, nuts, ect). It took over a week and a half to get the parts sent with average customer service call times of 2.5 hours. All calls are serviced through a third party and t... (Read more)
By Portcity Cycle (Stockton, CA) on Jun 24, 2012
I researched bikes for a month before I knew the 5.0 was the one. I received my bike this past week-end and this was the best investment I have ever made in my health. The bike has the ability to adjust the resistence, ifit live maps, personal trainer, and the ability to create your own workouts. W... (Read more)

Just bought a CX5.0Pro. I paid 60 % less then list and this is a new bike. I got a great deal and it works well.
Heart rate does not show on screen.
By Joe (Santa Fe, New Mexico) on Feb 13, 2013
Heart rate does no show on screen. Only a series of random numbers. I can recommend the machine if & when the heart rate shows on screen.
I have a 4 year service agreement. How do I get this fixed?
By okiebaker (Tulsa, OK) on Feb 14, 2013
Assembly was definitely a two-person job. The fan was locked up when we first tried to use it. Called and they sent a replacement within 4 days. Seat is comfortable and we like the features available.
GX5.0 & iFit Module
By kycat13 (Fredericksburg) on Feb 14, 2013
Extremely happy with the exercise bike, but disappointed with the iFit module. Haven't gotten it to work consistently, nor is it as impressive as advertised. The iFit program is a MAJOR disappointment.
Very nice machine!
By Supedawg (Canastota, NY) on Mar 26, 2013
I ordered the GX 5.0 Pro online from NordicTrack. Delivery was quick and painless. I chose to assemble the machine myself, which was very easy. The instructions recommend two people, but it was easily done by myself. The machine works great and has good features for the price. The installed workouts... (Read more)
Great machine. Great value.
By alumaguy (wisconsin) on Apr 17, 2013
Very good product. Used daily for teh three months that I have had it. Many outstanding features. Easy to adjust for different users and plenty of training options to keep it interesting. Better workout for abs than I expected too.
By Bad knees (Michigan) on Apr 20, 2013
It's a wonderful bike! I have knee issues and it is definitely easy on them! The only wish I have is that the an was stronger It's nice to have, but not as powerful as I wish it was.
By Ken (Murrieta, CA) on May 18, 2013
Smooth operation. Nice bike. The test will be how it holds up
By GBT (Lakeland, FL) on May 19, 2013
I'm 6'4," and this bike has more than enough leg extension room for me. Fairly easy to assemble. It's built like a battleship....Very sturdy construction. Extremely quiet, smooth operation. The control panel works fine.
