About Recumbent Exercise Bikes
Despite the competition from trendy new fitness inventions, exercise bikes continue to be popular options for home exercise. They offer the same aerobic benefits of riding a bicycle at any time, in any weather, without leaving the comfort and safety of home. Exercise bikes don't take up much space, require little or no balance or coordination, and can provide an effective workout for all levels of users, from beginners to serious competitors. While the same could be said for a number of other types of home fitness equipment, the exercise bike is one of the few that allows you to watch television or read a magazine while you work out.

The term recumbent literally means "lying down." Exercising in a recumbent or reclining position allows the user to have full ergonomic back support, without causing strain on the arms, neck and shoulders, all of which can be common effects of using an upright bicycle. For many people, having convenient access to quality exercise equipment is critical to sticking with a long-term exercise program.

Seat comfortable
Very large display
Comes with power adapter
At first I had purchased a schwinn bike .. did not come with power adapter and trying with batteries kept saying errors so I returned it and will never look back at a lower end nautilus.
This machine is made by johnson health group wich also has vision fitness.
Lokking at the vision fitness bikes are 700 plus tax plus shipping for their lower priced so I chose this one for the price..
I had a question about it before buying and called their customer service and got an answer right away.. no waiting on the line,
20 year warranty on break and 1 year part and labor on this machine
Very glad we purchased

I chose this bike due to the number of good responses I found on the US Amazon site for the same product. Unfortunately, it costs over $100.00 more to buy it in Canada...Oh Canada!

I am hopeful this bike will break in so I can find a lower setting that will make it a bit easier to pedal.

Like the exercise bike I use at the gym. Sturdy, easy to set up and does not take much floor space.

I bought one almost identical to this one in the U.S. for $149 but not through Amazon. It's a great bike, but no one needs to pay this much for a good stationary bike.

Well built and easy to use. Feb. 23 2009
By G. K. Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
I shopped for several months and tried out lots of bikes including Golds Gym's recumbent bikes.

I tried the R3 at Sam's Club and knew it was perfect! I am a big guy at 292 pounds and over 6' tall. I have had the bike for two months and with a low calorie diet have dropped 25 pounds so far!

I have had five right knee operations to date and my back was injured in a car accident two years ago which has greatly limited my exercise abililty. My doctor recommended a recumbent bike and I can ride this one for 45 minutes at 15 mph on the weight loss plus program.

Better than any of the more expensive bikes I tried at Gym X.

Great Bike for a Great Price June 12 2009
By M. Yankow - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The bike was easy to assemble, took a little over an hour. It has been running without issue since it arrived. the only downside is that the screen does not light up when its on and it can be difficult to see in low light, so don't plan to be able to read the screen without overhead lights on. Over all this is a great bike.

Adequate Bike, Not so good Seat Feb. 25 2012
By JEROME - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I gave this two stars because of issues with the seat. the bike is fine overall. I use it daily for about an hour a day. You need to put a pillow or some sort of lower back support in the spot between the seat and where the back rest begins or your lower back will probably hurt. I bought a recumbent bike specifically for lower back support so a recumebent bike with no lower back support is frustrating. As for the mechanism to secure the seat in place, why they chose the seat mechanism that they did, I will never know. It is extremely annoying. Instead of just being able to slide the seat back and forth into into pinned holes, they have a tightening system that doesn't really work unless you get lucky. You tighten the lever (which is supposed to turn a rubber piece into the metal bar below to secure the seat in place, but most of the time, the bike seat still moves. You have to loosen the lever, play with the rubber piece, rotating it with your hand and then keep trying to tighten the lever until you get lucky and the seat actually not only tightens but stays in place (the lever sometimes will tighten so you think it is secure, but then the seat will still slide). If you plan to move the seat regulary for multiple people in the family using, good luck. For $400 for a basic exercise bike, the seat should not have this problem. If you are the only one using the bike, and you don't plan to ever adjust the seat again, you should not have a problem. There is also something in the back that rattles a bit, not sure what it is. I double-checked to make sure the bike was set up correctly and it is.

Otherwise bike moves fine, is solid. The set up wasn't bad, took about two hours. The pieces in the box were light enough for me carry them by myself into the basement. All the pieces were in the kit and numbered in separate plastic bags to match up to the step you are on. The directions could have been more specific but not so bad that you can't set it up.

Excellent so far Dec 12 2007
By MCALS77 - Published on Amazon.com

I have owned the Horizon RC 30 recumbent bike for about two months and I haven't had any problems with it so far. This stationary bike is almost identical to those you find in any gym, except that it doesn't have LED lights, but otherwise it performs in the same way. I am still trying to find the time to read the directions to operate the panel properly. I'm sure after I do that I'll find it very easy to fine-tune each workout session. For now I just more or less decide whether I want an easy workout or a more challenging one by just seeing what happens on the panel when I push certain keys. Customer service was very helpful by providing me with the phone number of a couple of companies in my area that could assemble this item for a fee. It would have been virtually impossible for me to do the job myself as this item comes completely disassembled and it can be quite overwhelming.

Would recommend to a friend, but could use a better console Jan. 20 2011
By Tito - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have been using this bike for the past 3 weeks. I have also previously owned a Schwinn 220, briefly. The bike takes on the order of 2 hours to put together. The tools provided are of high quality. A couple of the bolts had trouble going in. WD40 helped, somewhat. The instructions are easy to follow. The bike works as you would expect. It is quiet when in use. The seat is comfortable. The 8 resistance levels are more than adequate. I typically run it between 3 and 5. The included workout programs are just okay. The programming does not take into account your weight or age, the programs are hard-coded to a 30 minute workout time, and there is no cool down period. There are two custom programs available to help alleviate some of these issues. Still, I was a little disappointed with the lack of features on the console. I would recommend this bike to a friend. In comparison to the Schwinn, this bike has a better, smoother seat adjustment, they are equal as far as smoothness of operation of the wheel, and the Schwinn has a better, more customizable console. I feel the Horizon Fitness bike wins on build quality. I purchased two Shwinn bikes. I returned the first due to a broken electrical connecter and the second when the brake mechanism died after one day of use. I purchased the Horizon Fitness bike because it fit my needs, but also I did pay close attention to the warranty offered by bike manufacturers and I would recommend you do the same. [UPDATE 08/27/13] I just wanted to add that the bike is still in perfect working condition with over 2 years of occasional use.
