This is the DKN AM-E exercise bike review. And this is entirely based on customer feedback plus some given facts. I have put in all of the leg work so you do not have to do it at all. Some of the information within this post we got from real life users. So, in other words, you will most definitely be able to come to a decision. That being, whether you wish to buy this model or not as the case maybe.
Who Is It For?
The documents prove that this exercise bike is not really for the bike rider with more experience. But, more for the beginner and intermediate users fitness levels. If you are have a lot of experience, then your level of fitness will most probably already be high. It is a very low impact exercise/piece of equipment. So it is good for those of use with hip, back and neck problems.
I guess the point I am attempting to make is if you are a regular rider then this kit will not be for you, but if like most people you are practically just starting out or have a little experience then you NEED a piece of apparatus JUST LIKE THIS ONE.

1 – This bike (dependant of course where you order it from) arrives very quickly indeed, usually within 2 – 5 days.
2 – Although some customers say. It could be hard to put up. But mostly it is simple..
3 – It shuts down automatically after a few minutes of activity so forgetting causes no harm.
4 – The transitional phase between switching the many levels of resistance is very smooth.
5 – Most people said ” It is fantastic value for money”.
6 – The exercise bike itself is very sturdy and has a great build quality.
1 – The maximum weight is not all that heavy for the obese person
2 – There is no drinks holder/Water bottle carrier on the machine
Other than these two I could not discover any more.
It would appear to all intents and purposes from all the information. This bike really is a great buy. The cons really are neither here nor there as the weight limit will still handle most of the users. And the cup/Bottle holder problem you can easily fix. You can put either on the ground nearby or on a piece of furniture that will be close to you. So I would not let these two small things stop you from buying what is otherwise a good exercise bike.
The fact that it will be suitable for beginners and intermediate levels of a person’s fitness. Will, I should think, be very good for a large number of people. As it is unfortunate but there are not many fit people in the world.
The auto shutdown function on the exercise bike is also very good. As it is very easy to forget a little thing like turning the apparatus off . Especially after a gruelling workout. As it would be the furthest thing from our mind, but with this, there really is no need to worry. Very good.
It Is Smooth
I am sure this is also a relief. That when switching between its many levels of resistance it is smooth. As there surely is nothing worse that it making noises when you are using it. This would only remind you that the product you are on, is just a cheap one.
So if you are in need of a piece of apparatus that will improve your overall fitness level. Then you really do not need to look any further than this great piece of machinery right here. If you have any worry about things going wrong with the kit or it breaking down on you. Then here is something that will put your mind at rest. Yes, the warranty.
It comes with a very long two year guarantee. And if you think how often you will use it in that over that time. And all of the wear and tear it will have been through. Then, if nothing has gone wrong with it. Then I guess you could say it has “passed the test”. And it will very unlikely fail on you in the future.
So, To Repeat –
If you need this item to/for –
- The purpose of getting fit and healthy
- You need It to be a cheap price.
- You are expecting value in exchange for your money.
- Want the piece of mind that should an error happen with it you’re Ok as it has cover for it.
- Want to have access to all your performance data.
- If you want to get better overall health and fitness levels, then this bike will do it.
Then I must say this, it just so happens to be the right exercise bike for you.
**WARNING** CONTINUED USE WILL RESULT IN CONSIDERABLE WEIGHT LOSS
