Comments: I am new to spinning and purchased this spin bike with the hopes of getting on it every day because of the rave reviews of spin class. I refuse to pay for gym membership when I can own my equipment for the price of an annual membership fee. I am quite sure that I can grow to love this equipment if I find the right beginners dvd to follow. The instructions for attaching the seat is awful. Thank goodness I am mechanically inclined. The seat is not comfortable at all. Must purchase a gel padded seat cover or padded biker shorts. Thank goodness I purchased the seat cover before the bike arrived. Overall, the quality of the equipment is tops. Very sturdy and will stand the test of time... As usual, Norditrack will upgrade this product and offer more versions later on. They always get better with time. Being as though this is the first offered, you may want to wait until they offer the dvd and heart monitor which should be included at no additional charge. But of course, we all know that is a laughing matter to expect anything free.
Sleek styling meets a great cardio workout with the GX2 sports cycle.
