Poor electronics, decent bike
3 Star Review   By blue on NordicTrack.com - Sep 11, 2013   

The electronic display does not last long unless you disconnect the batteries every time. Overall, the bike rides well. A built in recharger would be nice.

Great bike
4 Star Review   By Mike on NordicTrack.com - May 14, 2013   

I researched a lot of bike options before going with this one. It's a great bike and solid gear that makes you feel like you're riding outside on a racing bike. I fixed the computer battery problem thanks to the other reviewer's tip. Also got 4 stars instead of 5 because the saddle is too soft and cheap. I bought a gel seat for $35 from the local bike store and now a 60 minute workout is more comfortable.

What a workout!
4 Star Review   By NewToSpin on NordicTrack.com - Mar 5, 2013   

Very good value for the money. I wanted a sturdy spin bike with an electronic console and wireless heart monitor. The heart monitor works great. Battery life for the console is about 1 week (about 6 hours of use). I am using rechargeable batteries. I like the DVD that comes with it. Only issue is that the instructor refers to RPMs but the console only does MPH so that makes it harder to follow. After one hour my legs are really burning. It feels great!

Good but console issue

As stated by others, batteries last no longer than 2 weeks. Quality otherwise is very good.

fixed computer console battery problem
4 Star Review   By Bob F. on NordicTrack.com - Jan 21, 2013   

fixed computer battery console problem with a radio shack sub mini toggle switch #275-0612. I installed switch on back of console wired in line from batteries to computer electronics, this allows computer to be on or off with the toggle switch .no more draining of batteries because of flaw in computer electronics. hopefully Nordic track will address the issue.

priced right
4 Star Review   By marauders1 on NordicTrack.com - Jan 21, 2013   

A good indoor workout bike. I researched and priced many "spin" bikes for weeks. I found that the Nordic track quality surpasses all others at this price level. Smooth chain drive with minimal noise. Computer console is a great addition with heart monitor. The resistance brake easily accessed when pedaling and sensitive. Turn on the Music and get a gym workout at home.

Great spinning bike but...
4 Star Review   By Gldndomer on NordicTrack.com - Jan 18, 2013   

I did a lot of research before purchasing a spin bike. This was by far the best deal anywhere! I, however have to agree with the other review regarding the computer. It comes on regularly. I just use rechargeable batteries - but still an annoyance. Other than that...absolutely could not be happier with my purchase. I went to a couple local sporting goods stores and this bike is far better than anything I rode for a slightly higher price. WELL WORTH the money and wait for delivery!

Very happy with the bike itself but there are issues with the co
3 Star Review   By Bob F. on NordicTrack.com - Jan 13, 2013   

I purchased this model specifically because of the benefit of having a computer to help monitor our workout, ie... time, speed calories and heart rate. The issue is the Nordic Track claims that the computer comes on automatically when the bike is in use and shuts off when not in use. This is not the case. The computer comes on every 15 minutes and runs for 4 minutes. This cycle repeats itself continuously. This chews through 4 batteries within a weeks time. Nordic Track has sent us two more computers to try, claiming that there must have been a bad batch. I believe this is a computer flaw from the manufacture as all three computers produce the same results when I tested them. Nordic Track needs to be aware and make the necessary changes to satisfy customers. If you are buying this model because of the computer be prepared to spend a lot of money on batteries!! If known I would not have purchased this model.
