DKN AM-5i Ergo Exercise Bike -, Excellent, as good as the latest Matrix indoor cycles

Solid bike which is let down by unreliability and badly maintained apps. Good stable, solid quiet bike. However mine failed twice and had to get engineer out to replace the motor which changes tension twice. I liked the idea that i could control the bike and monitor fitness via an app. The dkn motion app despite not being as good as i hoped, was able to be used successfully with my android 4 tablet and could control the bike in manual mode and monitor progress with that. However disappointed the app won’t connect with latest versions of android.

Good bike, excellent programs and natural feel but you. Good bike, excellent programs and natural feel but you need a good internet connection for the street view route mapping as it keeps freezing.

I have had it nearly six months and use it about 4 times a week. The seat may not be comfortable for all, but i a padded gel cover – now works fine.

After lots of research into exercise bikes, i decided to choose this one, and so far i have been delighted with it. Here are the positives: very reasonably priced, well built, easy to put together, sturdy, doesn’t move or shake about when cycling, the display screen is clear, lots of different programmes to choose from, plenty of resistance, seat is comfortable, fairly decent apps which add to the programmes and routes, dkn has a very good customer service (replied to my questions very promptly). Less positives points: no water bottle holder (but i solved this by buying one, and by using 2 cable ties, i attached it to the main frame – works well), i had to contact the dkn customer service to find out more info about the apps and usb port – the paperwork/online info were not detailed enough (but customer service has been very good and quick). If you are going to choose this bike, you are not going to be disappointment. I have had mine for a month or so, and i have used it most days.

Perfect for getting back to fitness with as much adjustment as you could need. Great customer service also.

    Had for over a year now and still going strong hence the three stars but the bike has issues. The bad points are the apps are rubbish, the bike is very noisy(squeaky handlebar stem and saddle), even the hardest program is far too easy- i’ve never had to get out of the saddle to pedal it’s just too easy. Good points are the bike has a good selection of programs, the phone / ipad charging point is very handy but next time i’ll probably go back to a spin bike.

    Dkn am-5i ergo exercise bike review. Although i purchased it from sweatband after a spending lot of time researching different exercise bikes, i finally selected this model i’m usually very critical but this bike appears to be of superb build quality, like some other reviewers comments instructions for assembly could possibly be better,but with that said just following the pictures illustrations made it easy enough to assembly, it was made easier with two people just for the handle bars feeding the wires through for the monitor display, just be careful you don’t accidentally trap any off the wires whilst putting the plastic shrouds over which hides the wiring, using the bike for the first time each user can input their own personal details age, weight, and height and finally male or female this data is stored under your user number you select, all of various different exercise settings are very user friendly and intuitive, using the bike you immediately know and feel this is a quality product my only reservation is perhaps the saddle which probably wont suit everyone, to sum up in this price range and considerably higher you wont find a better value and quality exercise bike, i therefore highly recommend it you certainly wont be disappointed.

      1. Once replaced the second bike is good. . Bike delivered with seat shaft defective. Shaft made to face wrong way, so seat could not be fitted properly. Bike replaced fairly promptly. Very inconvenient to have to wait at home for recollection of defective bike and separate second delivery.

    1. Excellent range of features. I like the consul which is easy use. The only thing that i do not like is that it makes a buzzing noise in use. Still it is a very good machine in my opinion.

    Took a little while to construct and you need to pay attention to the instructions very carefully, but it seems pretty solid. Very quiet in operation – no whirring chains or grinding gears. The ipad interface is fun, but it’s quite functional without it. Resistance levels appear to be finely graded and it makes for a good cardio workout.
