I have to say I am very fortunate to have gotten this recumbent bike a few years ago. If you are considering a stationary bike this one is solid and very functional. SportsArt makes a good product!! This one is totally powered by you but I believe you can buy an adapter to keep the monitor lit if you need to pause during a ride. Part of why we purchased this one is because it is not powered by electric, so it is very quiet to use and you can use it anytime, regardless of if someone is sleeping.
One of the really nice things about it? It can hold 4 “identities” so each of us can recall our settings without the full start up process and we can also switch programs “mid-stride” if we decide to change paths. The seat position and back are easily adjusted and the heart rate feature is just a hand grip away.
No, this is not a ‘paid advertisement’ just my appreciation for a great product. ~Janice
