All things considered, I have to say that this review on the Marcy Upright Exercise Bike will be a positive one. If you are a beginner and only looking to purchase an entry-level bike, then the Marcy upright bike is something you are going to want to consider.
Needless to say, the price of this simple but sometimes necessary piece of equipment reflects how basic it is, but, If you were to ask me then, I would say go for it as it still possesses the key features that you will need so.
As I have just said the aim at the novice/beginner and you will not want to purchase this bike if you are a rider of some experience. But for people who are newly into riding and exercise it is an ideal piece of additional kit to ensure your improved fitness and weight loss.
- For such a cheap bike the Marcy upright bike provides you with a near silent workout.
- The are eight pre-programmed resistance levels to choose.
- The LCD computer display is very easy to read.
- Amazing for longer cycling sessions. It is sturdy and well built.
- LCD screen displays calories burned, workout time, speed, distance covered.
- Adjustable body shaped seat ensures a comfortable ride.
- Easy to grip thick handlebars for that extra secure feeling.
- High-quality frame and steel tubing for the rigorous workout.
- Counterbalanced pedals made to fit any shoe size.
- Some users have complained the writing is too small on the LCD screen.
- Some users had to pause their workout to get a closer look at their statistics.
- If there is bad light, the screen can difficult to read.
- Some users even suggested the seat is uncomfortable. That, after a couple of days went when it has time to fit the riders bottom.
All round this is a fantastic exercise bike to own when working with a tight budget. It is well suited to weight loss. As I said the seat does not appear to be a problem and the issue of bad light really could surely be addressed by the placing of a lamp nearby.
I guess the other two cons would have to depend on good eyesight then as these were just a few users out of over 700 that left reviews on Amazon. So in all fairness to the Marcy upright bike, I do not see this a being much of a problem at all.
My Overall Rating 9/10
