This is the recumbent exercise bicycle that folds in seconds to half its set-up size for unobtrusive storage under a bed or in a closet. Unlike traditional stationary models that force riders to pedal while hunched over (causing unnecessary back strain), this recumbent model encourages users to sit upright and pedal with correct spinal posture. The bicycle has an LCD for simple navigation of workout menus, displaying your heart rate (when gripping the sensors built into the handlebars), exercise time, speed, calories burned, and distance traveled, and the bicycle's resistance adjusts at the turn of a knob. The sturdy steel frame ensures years of reliable use, the foam-padded handgrips and seat provide optimal comfort, and the seat adjusts to suit different riders. Pedal straps keep your feet secured for an even pedal stroke. Integrated wheels ensure ease of portability. Supports up to 250 lbs. and heights between 5'4" and 6'. Assembly required. Set-up: 47" H x 26" W x 30 1/4" D. Folded: 45" H x 26" W x 19" D. (38 1/4 lbs.)

The Foldaway Recumbent Exercise Bicycle.
from Ontario, Canada
I use this product to strengthen and recoup orate my knee after arthroscopic surgery. For this purpose as well as general exercise and fitness it works very well. Delivery of the product was excellent and is very easy to build .. only about an hour.The seat is somewhat uncomfortable and as such I support my back with a pillow which in turn moves my body position forward enough to make the peddling easier.I like that it is compact, has a very accessible tension adjuster and it runs very, very quite .. in fact no noise at all.The digital display is hard to read and requires back lighting .. something to consider in a future design.Overall, I really like this product and would recommend it to anyone, male or female.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Way to exercise!

Couldn't believe I got it all together in one day! Not bad for a 70 year old female!

not ergonomically correct
By lady with back problems
from Laurel, MD
This exercise bike does not have enough back support where it is needed in the lower back. It also does not have enough positions to adjust to for comfort and size. Not a good choice. I will be sending back to the company.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

So good I sent one to my sister
Easy to assemble, very sturdy and balanced, easy to get on and off. Comfortable to the point that I can ride through an entire TV program and not realize it. I sent one to my sister.

Makes exercise easy
from St John, Indiana
The machine is extremely quiet. I use it while watching TV. Durable and sturdy. I only wish the display on the computer screen was lit. Also it's hard roll on carpet. Rolls better on hardwood floors but design could be better.
from Stamford, CT
This is well made, well constructed, and light enough to move around easily.However, it is not at all a recumbent bike. It is a totally upright bike without handlebars. If you are looking for a recumbent bike that takes pressure off your back and allows you to pedal for exercise in a recumbent position, this is definitely not for you.
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Thanks for your feedback. There are variations of recumbent bikes, but this particular one allows for a slight lean back as well as has forward pedals (rather than below the knees). Please remember that you can always order from Hammacher Schlemmer with confidence knowing that if you are disappointed with a product—for any reason—you may return it under our lifetime guarantee. Please contact our customer service team at 1-800-321-1484 and they will be happy to assist you.

I love this bike!
By Jolly Jogger
from Vancouver, WA
Great for exercising while watching TV. Quiet and puts no strain on my knees or feet. Great over-all workout.
lot of bang for the buck
from Fort Worth
Again, the instructions need to be proofed. Be nice if the seat adjusted a little higher. I'm 6' 2" and can easily ride it but a few.inches of seat height would be good.
great bike for the price
from Annapolis, MD
I didn't want to pay a fortune for a stationary bike, already have an outdoor bike and belong to a gym. I just wanted something to keep me active / burn some extra calories while watching TV. This definitely did the trick. I can set the resistance, track my calorie loss, distance, etc., and if I need to stow it away, it fits in a small closet / storage area quite nicely. I wouldn't recommend this if you're looking for a gym equivalent bike / intense workouts, but for my casual needs, it was well worth it.
A good bike for tall people.
from Prince Edward Island, Canada
The number of parts and pieces was daunting when I opened the box. I had to wait until my son was home to assemble it as it required two people to do it. I also trusted his strength to tighten the bolts more than my own.The bike is a good size for him but almost too tall for me. People under five foot four inches beware. I can use it and it works well but it's a stretch to get on.
