Very happy with the bike itself but there are issues with the co

I purchased this model specifically because of the benefit of having a computer to help monitor our workout, ie... time, speed calories and heart rate. The issue is the Nordic Track claims that the computer comes on automatically when the bike is in use and shuts off when not in use. This is not t... (Read more)
Great spinning bike but...
By Gldndomer (South Bend, IN) on Jan 18, 2013
I did a lot of research before purchasing a spin bike. This was by far the best deal anywhere! I, however have to agree with the other review regarding the computer. It comes on regularly. I just use rechargeable batteries - but still an annoyance. Other than that...absolutely could not be happier w... (Read more)

A good indoor workout bike. I researched and priced many "spin" bikes for weeks. I found that the Nordic track quality surpasses all others at this price level. Smooth chain drive with minimal noise. Computer console is a great addition with heart monitor. The resistance brake easily accessed w... (Read more)

As stated by others, batteries last no longer than 2 weeks. Quality otherwise is very good.

What a workout!
By NewToSpin (Indianapolis,IN) on Mar 5, 2013
Very good value for the money. I wanted a sturdy spin bike with an electronic console and wireless heart monitor. The heart monitor works great. Battery life for the console is about 1 week (about 6 hours of use).
I am using rechargeable batteries.
I like the DVD that comes with it. Only... (Read more)

I researched a lot of bike options before going with this one. It's a great bike and solid gear that makes you feel like you're riding outside on a racing bike. I fixed the computer battery problem thanks to the other reviewer's tip.
Also got 4 stars instead of 5 because the saddle is too soft a... (Read more)
Poor electronics, decent bike
By blue (chicago, IL) on Sep 11, 2013
The electronic display does not last long unless you disconnect the batteries every time. Overall, the bike rides well. A built in recharger would be nice.

I just took delivery and assembled the bike. The chain rattles with high resistance.
I took me more than 1hr to get some help on phone.
Educated guess per phone? chain issues. Theu do not send tech out without a part which now is out of stock. I may have to wait 2-3 weeks.
This sound deja vu!... (Read more)

Received it within a week of the order with the Free standard shipping. Packed really well.Easy to put together.
It is great for quick and long workouts - can already feel the difference on legs and gluts. Would recommend as great buy.
Excellent piece of exercise equipmant

After reading previous reviews of this bike concerning the display not being able to turn off, I bought it anyway. This is well built and fairly easy to put together. (about 90 minutes by myself) The bike is very quite. The display works perfectly. This bike will kick your butt, so take it easy.
