Acquired to support with restoration immediately after back surgery as i’ve been stopped from riding usual bikes. Hunting at static bikes, charges and assessments i made a decision to obtain a person of these. It was a bit much more highly-priced than i needed to pay back but you hope you are building the right decision and there is always the possibility of sending it again. The box arrived before than expected and it is a massive box this is thanks to the bike been nearly completely constructed, demanding the toes, seat, peddles and handlebars fitting not a hard work even on my individual. Equipment are provided on the other hand i discovered the spanner to tighten the seat alternatively very poor so applied my have. One particular little bit of guidance is prior to you open up the box open up the bottom of the box and fold again the flaps then set the correct way up, this will support with unpacking as its properly packaged within. thirty mins later just one bike ready to trip. Extremely straightforward to set up the top for my 5’10 frame and clean and quite tranquil. Been equipped to use it while the wife sleeps in the upcoming room (evening shift employee) is a distinct advantage, as is the wheels to transfer it out of the way.

Great strong bike, a lot of resistance in magnetic flywheel. Extremely quiet ,very well really worth the cash.

CrystalTec CT101M Magnetic Resistance Belt Driven Indoor Aerobic Training Cycle Exercise Bike Fitness Cardio Workout Machine : A very good bike let down by small issues. I have now had the bike a few weeks and i can say i’m very happy with it. The bike was easy to assemble and it’s very sturdy and comfortable to use. Being 6ft 5in i had my reservations that it would be ergonomically designed for me to use for prolonged periods of time, but i’m happy to say i certainly can and i’ve found both the seat and the body position i use cause me no ill effects. The seat and the handle bars are fully adjustable to various hights whilst the seat can also be moved closer or further away from the handle bars for even greater comfort. Now the reason for the 3 stars: unfortunately i had to return my first bike within 24 hours due to it developing a high pitched squeak, i did try to ascertain where the problem was originating from but to no avail; most of the bikes workings are shielded in plastic preventing any attempt at lubricantion. The problem was delt with effectively via email with the company and i received a replacement within 3 days (very good customer service)the second issue i have is that whilst the assembly instructions are clear and concise there are no instructions on how to use the accompanying display screen/ monitor. The monitor comes with various settings from distance cycled, calories burnt, time elapsed etc, there is also one for what i believe is a pre-programmable setting but without any information on how to program this a lot of guess work was/is involved before you can get the best out of your workout. One final comment about the monitor is that whilst the casing is large with a place to put a ipad/or phone etc the actual lcd display in very small if not minuscule which is rather a pity, it doesn’t detract from being able to read the display but i do feel a larger lcd would be more beneficial. To summarise i do think the bike is worth investing your money in as without the squeak problem i experienced you will have a very good bike to use.

    Bought to help with recovery after back surgery as i’ve been stopped from riding normal bikes. Looking at static bikes, prices and reviews i decided to buy one of these. It was a bit more expensive than i wanted to pay but you hope you are making the right choice and there is always the option of sending it back. The box arrived earlier than expected and it is a big box this is due to the bike been almost completely built, requiring the feet, seat, peddles and handlebars fitting not a difficult job even on my own. Tools are supplied however i found the spanner to tighten the seat rather poor so used my own. One bit of advice is before you open the box open the bottom of the box and fold back the flaps then put the right way up, this will help with unpacking as its well packaged inside. 30 mins later one bike ready to ride. Very easy to set up the height for my 5″10 frame and smooth and very quiet. Been able to use it while the wife sleeps in the next room (night shift worker) is a distinct advantage, as is the wheels to move it out of the way.

      1. Arrived on time well packaged simple to put together all parts fit with a presion quality,now the only criticisms i can highlight is as previously reviewed,the computer display is rubbish,why produce a quality product and then spoile it. The next model in this range has a much more impressive display but design not to my taste come on fit this display to both models. I bought this to exercise my knee replacement so function more important to me ,which is excellent but if your eye site not good or you are keen on fitness and require a good visable reading of performance this product will disappoint.

    Speedy delivery, excellent customer service, good quality bike. . Very very pleased with this bike – so why the 4 stars?delivery was excellent and the bike well boxed, assembly was a doddle (even by myself), the product itself is very well made and i am pleased i went for the magnetic resistance model, the seat is not bad but can move about even when fully tightened, it does however take a while to find the posture you like but those gripes aside its pleasurable when you are working out. On to the only real issue i have found. The bike developed a very loud and annoying squeak after a few days of use (i could even hear it over my earplugs) – customer service were excellent here asking if i could isolate the noise to the pedals or the fly wheel. Not being 100% sure if this was caused by the pedals or not (and a ball bearing issue) they offered to send me a replacement bike straight away (which they did), this was very promptly handled by customer service and i really can’t fault them here, i am hoping the issue with the first bike is a one off and the replacement bike will have no issues. All in all very satisfied with the customer service and apart from the one real issue with the bike i am happy with the product too.

    1. Great bike, fantastic customer service. . This a fantastically quiet, smooth bike, with a great range of resistance. We have been following you tube spinning classes and this bike is perfectly suited. In addition we received outstanding customer service; we had a couple of minor issues with the bike that was first delivered, crystaltec sent a replacement bike within two days and collected the other without being asked.

  7. Brilliant bike, perfect for home quietest thing i’ve ever used. Previously i owned a turbo trainer – which allows you to use your regular road bike as an exercise bike – however these were noisy, vibrated quite a lot, and because of this i never really used them. I chose this bike mainly because of the low noise levels, being magnetic resistance, so i could keep it in an area of the house that didn’t need soundproofing. Or at least be able to watch tv/tablet/listen to music. When i unpackaged the bike, i agreed with other reviews, there’s a lot of plastic wrapping and expanded polystyrene, cardboard shapes would have been nicer, my new washing machine arrived all packaged with cardboard shapes recently which made recycling easy. Setting up took about 15 minutes, there seems a lot of parts, but the instructions are well written with good diagrams, and everything fits together easily, nothing has to be forced and fixings are all good quality. I was up and running on the bike that evening, and was very very happy with the lack of noise – had it on infront of the tv and didn’t need to increase the volume at all, the loudest noise was mein terms of difficulty, there are 8 settings, 1 being the lowest resistance. I started on 1 and quickly moved to 2 as a 5 minute warm up – then increase the difficulty every 30 seconds right up to max (have to stand up for the last one). Do this twice, with a 10 min cool down in between on setting 3 or 4 and it’s a really good workout. Size-wise, i’m over 6ft 2″ and i am fine on it, although much taller might be a struggle.

      1. I’ve been using this for a few months now and i have to agree with the 3 star review posted by another reviewer. It is very quiet and smooth and that was important because my son uses it at night. I chose this bike for that reason and also i wanted a comfortable seat. However, just as the 3 star reviewer pointed out, the distance between the seat and the bars is too great. Even though the seat can be moved forward and back, higher or lower, i always have to stop because of the pressure on my hands. It’s a shame because otherwise it is very comfortable. Also, as others have mentioned, the difference in pressure between settings 2 and 3 is huge.

    1. Excellent replacement for previous exercise bike. In view of other reviews purchased this bike. Came well packaged (although would have preferred cardboard protection rather than masses of polystyrene – not environmentally friendly). Very easy to put together with excellent instructions with all parts clearly labled. Position at the moment seems a bit stretched but will get used to that. As with a previous review, the level of resistance between 2 and 3 is too great. Have not tried higher levels yet as have just had knee replacement. Have used as rehab machine before i get back on a proper bike but will continue to use. Very smooth ride and resistance.

    1. It was delivered well on time and properly packed. The bike was in several parts but each clearly labelled and the enclosed instructions made assembly an easy task. The bike is very solid, stable and good value for money.

    First bike was faulty, replacement bike is a revelation. Updating my original review because the original bike was faulty. The gear set never worked properly and the bike developed a squeaky pedal after a couple of months use. I contacted the seller via amazon and to be fair they sent out a replacement immediately. I almost felt a little reticent to complain about a squeak but when i got the replacement bike as soon as i compared the two it was clear that there was a much more serious problem with the old one. The new bike is so much easier to use because it has a smooth action and finally i can actually use the gears. It seams the squeaky pedal was just symptom of a far more serious problem that if i hadn’t been able to compare the bikes i may never have known about. Thank you to crystaltec for being so responsive and shipping a new bike but they didn’t want the old one back and asked me to dispose of it – so i took it apart and dropped it off at my local tip. Now that i have an exercise bike that is working the way that it should i can honestly say i love this bike and am increasing the score from 3 stars to 4 stars. However, i do this with one caveat and that is i hope i don’t experience any further quality issues.

    1. I like the build quality and the positioning adjustments are very good. Particularly like how quiet it is as well as the levels of difficulty you can set. The seat is very comfortable too.
