York Fitness Active 120 Exercise Bike – //, Recommended Gym equipment

I like everything about the bike except that , after the first use, the programme selection ceased to work. It will not go beyond the manual choice.

Easy to assemble, looks great (a little picasso-esque in the corner). Works really well and smoothly, and is very quiet. The only downside is the computer looks and feels slightly cheap but gives you all the information you need. I would certainly recommend this product to anyone. It feels almost like a gym bike – and very good value for money.

York active 120 exercise bike. The york active 120 exo bike is a good performer with 8 mode levels which is suitable for anyone at any level.

I purchased this via the black friday sale. If you take 10 minutes to lay out parts and read the instructions, the build is really easy. It took my wife and i 20 minutes to put together. I bought it for myself, but now my wife uses it more than me as it has multiple users.

This meets my requirements of providing exercise to compensate for the sedentary lifestyle i have fallen into since retirement. I have it on a carpet, so it wobbles a little. Also, i am not convinced that the heart monitor is accurate. Nevertheless, it provides the exercise i used to get by cycling to work and back and i don’t have to get cold and wet.

York Fitness Active 120 Exercise Bike – Black/White/Green : Not bad but serious production issues. Its a good bike overall and is pleasant to use, smooth and quiet with nice finish, and good range of programs. However, i had to send the first on back as the magnetic resistance started playing up after 2. It would increase a bit then slip back and only really changed when you got to over 12 when it would suddenly kick in. Also noticed a bit of plastic loose inside the casing. Fair enough york sent a boxed replacement and picked up the old one fully assembled for no charge. The new one seems to be ok but i still dont really trust the magnetic resistance to be functioning properly but will stick it out, but at least it is consistent. As others have said the heart rate sensors are a joke, totally unrealistic and hardly change from a steady cycle to a lung busting hill rise. Every time ive used the recovery thing it actually goes up rather than down.

    Wanted some home equipment rather than trailing to the gym. Great value, sturdy and easy to put together. I bought this and a desperate cross trainer which proved good as both me & the wife can use together.

    Came quickly and was easy to put together. Have been using it a week and is perfect for the beginner at home who is looking to start off getting back in shape. Perfect considering the price.

    1. Great bike for the price – assembly is brilliant – takes about 30 minutes and does not need two people. On the downside, and this is why my rating only gets 3 stars, i assembled, turned the pedals, and a considerable grating noise coming from the flywheel. These bikes are not well protected in their packaging. Phoned amazon, quickly through to a human being (relief) and they were great – the bike was collected (still assembled) and a new one delivered next morning.
