Excellent for disabled
Being severely disabled by a massive stroke, this bike provides a truly excellent way to get back one's legs. It is extraordinarily well-built, easy to mount, with features that keep one interested in exercise, avoid boredom, and produces results, and at 81, perfect! Needs a water bottle cage, but I am sure I can secure one. Heartfelt thanks!

I purchased the bike July 2008 per my doctor's request after arthroscopic knee surgery. Can't use the treadmill anymore. I'm at 45 minutes every day. It's a great workout. The bike is comfortable and durable. I would recommend to anyone.

Exactly what I wanted
I'm very happy with the bike. I get a thorough and comfortable work-out every time. I have some disk damage in my lower back, so running is not an option for me. Realizing I needed a stationary bike, comfort and low-impact exercise became important to me. I found all of these things when I considered this particular bike. Lately, I've been riding my face off and it feels great. The music port as well as the fan are nice touches also. My only issue was when the bike was delivered. I was told over the phone that the bike would come to me in about 8 pieces. It came in about 8oo pieces. After calling NordicTrack though, they quickly sent out an assembler to my home. All in all, I am happy with my purchase, I get a tough workout everytime I use it and I am not injuring myself in my attempt to get in shape. Thank you.

I use it almost every day.
This is the most use I have ever had out of a piece of excersize equipment. It works smooth and quiet. It took me 3 hours to assemble by myself and I figured that that was part of the exercise that I would get.The only criticism is that the seat is still to hard for me. But my wife doesnt agree. It is fine with her.

It is certainly working for me
This bike was purchased for me by my family as a Christmas present last year, I have herniated disc pain in my lower back. I was unable to ride my bike for months until one day I just ignored the pain and started to ride. Well, I must say that it has done wonders for my overall health. My back is much better and my whole attitude has changed regarding exercising, which I never took a liking too. I refer to my Nordic Track as "My Bike" which I love so much, I even get compliments saying that I have lost weight too. I just love it !!!

This bike is an excellent product and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a recumbant bike.
Pros: When I received my new bike the console has a slot for the iFit Card. The advertisement for this bike on your website makes no mention of this slot and the picture of the console does not show it. I almost bought a cheaper model because I was looking for a bike that was iFit Card compatible. You may want to update your website and include that information about this bike. Cons:I subtracted half a star because there is no cup holder which for the price of this bike is an outrage.

Hi Quality Bik
I went to local stores to look at exercise bikes. They all looked cheap to me. I wanted something more like the bikes you see in health clubs. I went to the NordicTrack web site and saw this bike. Online, it appeared to be a better quality bike and was advertised as commercial grade. I was very skeptical because the pictures on the web site were not very detailed. I took a gamble and ordered it, as well as the professional assembly that was offered. It arrived in about 5 days. I called the assemby company and told them the bike had arrived. The came to the house the next day. The bike has exceeded my expectations. It is a commercial grade bike and high quality. I recommend this bike to anyone looking for an exercise bike for home. You won't be disappointed. I also recommend you purchase the professional assembly for $99.95. It's worth it.

Excellent - Commerical Grade
It's a great bike. It's roomy seat is comfortable, too. It has the option of using pre-installed workout programs or insert the iFit cards and listen through the built-in speakers for instructional help in getting in shape! It's great to purchase during the times the bike is on sale - As you can see it costs quite a bit of money. I got lucky and purchased it for a quarter of the original price!!

Perfect for My Needs
Thank you NordicTrack! The purchase experience went smoothly - it was very easy. As an older person I can't put pressure on my shoulder so this bike makes exercising easy!

FUN, FUN, FUN!
Easy to buy - good sales reps - good advice.
The Nordic Track Bike was just what we wanted - FUN, FUN, FUN - everybody wanted to get on it and get fit - great incentive to have it in the home!
We have used recumbent bikes for the last 2 years to reduce the intensity of back pain due to (diagnosed) spinal injuries - it works - and you get fit in the process

More Than I Expected!!
It is more than I expected. It is sturdy, easy to use, comfortable & adjustable. I love the wider seat and back support. The seat adjustment is smooth and so easy. I plug my mp3 player into it sometimes and just pedal to my hearts content. I have a severe case of fibromyagia and this is the most pain free yet progressive exercise I have been able to do in a long time!
I have lost 20 pounds in 2.5 months and I am slimming down at a nice pace! =) I love the ifit program (Jillian Michaels) that I got for free with my extended warranty. There is just enough interaction with her voice to help keep you motivated but not overbearing were it gets annoying! also the 20 levels of resistance and the programs built in, to select from the electronic panel are AMAZING!

Surpassed my Expectations
The purchase went smoothly. The bike was delivered exactly on time and when I was told it was going to be delivered. This is an excellent product that far surpassed my expectations. It's far superior to comparable bikes that I've used at commercial gyms. I assembled it myself and the directions were very clear and understandable. The quality of the bike is impressive. It's sturdy and operates very smoothly. It's sturdy and very stable even when operated at fast speeds. It has a substantial feel to it.

Glad i Went with NordicTrack
Being able to have a live chat with a person was most helpful. I was surprised how high my legs came up when riding, because I had never ridden a bike quite like this. Because of a traumatic leg injury, it has taken a little longer to adjust to that height. I am getting much more comfortable with that as I keep working out. For me, it has been important to go every other day until my legs and hips can re-align. That is the main reason I bought the bike, so I am glad it is working. As stated above, I am regaining hip alignment and balance after two years of limping (badly broken tib/fib). I needed the bike to get good cardiovascular without leg pain. My legs are stronger, more balanced, and that all gives me more of what it USED to feel like to walk. Time will tell... Glad I went with NordicTrack.

Everything came in one box, to my surprise. Expertly packaged, all fasteners in an organization tray, not so much as one missing screw. All necessary tools included. Instructions/illustrations uncommonly clear. I took my leisure unpacking, carefully read the instructions, and was using my bike four hours from the minute I had it in the door. And all of this by myself!
The machine is superbly constructed, solid as a rock. The display is large, easily viewable from your seat, and offers all information pertinent to your workout, without unnecessary bells and whistles.
And, oh, did I mention? and I can plug my ipod in and listen to the music without earplugs!

A Great Bike
I have purchased and received the Commercial VR Recumbent bike now for over a month and wanted to follow up. This bike is a fantastic piece of equipment. It way surpasses my expectations. I was used to riding on $4000.00 Life Fitness bikes at the gym. To be honest this bike I feel is just as good. The price is fantastic. The difficulty levels are great. I have ridden it almost everyday for at least 45 minutes to an hour. Very comfortable to ride, YOU DO NOT get fatigued at all due to discomfort. I could go on about this bike. I recommend it to everyone. Afraid of weight limit? Don't be. Thank you NordiTrack for producing a professional bike.

I am a former NCAA track and field competitor. I've trained on some of the best equip on the market. Bought this machine for home use and was suprised with its quality and performance. I put it through its paces and it held up and allowed me to reach my extended training needs.

Amazing! Easier than ever to burn calories.
This bike is awesome! Down 19.4 lbs this month. 4.5 starts only because the padded seat could be a little more comfortable. I like to do 2-45 min workout programs a day.. and the seat kinda hurts. For now I just put a towel over it for extra padding. But I love the speakers and all the workout programs. I think the sale price is very fair!

Continues to surpass expectations
The bike was a snap to assemble. After a few days of relying on my judgement about how hard to exercise and using the manual function to design each exercise period, I started using the built-in trainer programs. The results have been immediate and positive. The 20 programs can be customized and, as my fitness has improved, I have set the resistance above the pre-programmed levels. My routine consists of four one-half hour programs each day (one hour in the morning and one hour in the late afternoon). I have logged 1,000 miles in six weeks. And, yes, the seat should be re-engineered; but, for now, the break-in period for both the machine and rider has passed and I couldn't happier.

Peddle all night long.. all night....all night
This is a great bike. If you need to loose weight this bike makes it comfortable to allow you to exercise longer. The bike is quiet and smooth. The seat slides to various spots so that any family member can use the bike. The iPod and fan are a bonus and make long work outs seem short. Nordic staff on the 800 line have been very helpful.
for the price its a great great buy.

Just Ordered This Bike
I had just ordered this bike on Sunday, 1/9/11, I spoke with Adam in Customer Service. I have to say that he was very helpful, courteous, friendly and professional. It was my first time contacting NordicTrack and I did purchase this bike. I searched hours of my time for a bike for me. I know the one I wanted was over $4000.00. Way over my budget. This bike is perfect. I can't wait to get it, and will follow up. I just wanted to let anyone know if they are hesistant, or leery, this bike is well worth the retail just for what it has on it. It reminds me of the $4000. bike with same equipment and details. Again, I highly recommend this bike for anyone. And when you call ask for Adam. God Bless.
