Nice hardware, lacking in data management
The hardware seems to be of good quality and assembly was breeze. Easy to adjust seat height and handlebars. Was disappointed that the data did not contain charting of the watts (very important) and the lack of data export for comparison to other data tracking devices.

Love this Bike Trainer
Idea and Suggestion By Claudio M Martinez 02/26/2012 This bike needs an online internet access so that people can compete on line around the world with others, to compare strength and make it more fun.

Aint your mommas exercise bike
Only downside is this isn't one of those relaxer bikes where you can increase heart rate and practically take a nap. When you get on this it is for a kick budt work out. Following the route gives you some motivation to finish were as on other resistant training bikes when you get tired or bored your done. This bike pushes your limits.

I think the manuel needs to be more specific on details, like gearing What is the gearing for the triple? I do not see it listed Also: would have been nice to have 11-32 and 11-36 built in for climbs like Whiteface and Mt Washington

Gets me motivated, it's all that it is advertised.
I am 40 years old and about 50 pounds overweight, I hate stationary bikes and treadmills, we'll start there. So now that winter is here I need to drop some weight and stay active. I bought this bike based on the google maps feature. The first 2 rides I took were on normal bike routes I do with my specialized. This thing mimmics the route about 95 percent. I hook up my laptop and watch my route on google street view, really cool. The hills kick your but just like the real thing. So now my goal is to ride across the country in 10 to 15 mile segments. That's where my motivation is. Program a map for today's ride, ride it, get it done, there is a real goal to achieve unlike ordinary bikes. You have an actual destination. Fun stuff. The ifit subscripton is worth it.

This bike is amazing. I love it. It does everything an indoor trainer should do and then some. I was wary because I've never really found an indoor trainer I liked at a reasonalbe price so I was skeptical going into this (I usually ride my own bike on a trainer) but this bike is solid and performs extremely well. It's a great value and, frankly, a lot of fun!

Problems right out of the box!
Quality of the bike appears pretty good, however the wireless network will not connect. I've tried customer care at ProForm and it keeps disconnecting after the recording says there is a high demand for calls...can't even leave a message! The wireless connection appears to play an important role on these bikes with the iFit Live and Google Maps. Hopefully I can get a live person on the line from Pro-Form and get this issue resolved.

Great Bike, missing features
I have had my bike for several weeks now and love it. I does everything you could ask for and the Google map feature is great. Bike was originally advertised as supporting Polar heart rate monitor straps. At this time no heart rate monitoring is supported.

Love this Bike!!!
Have had the bike for 3 days. Love it. I put my ipad over the monitor ( after accessing ifit) to make the rides even more realistic. Gives me a nice big screen interface. The ifit integration is simply incredible. Only issue is once you unplug you need to restore the factory defaults and re enter your wireless codes. Easy set up.

Bugs R gettin' better
Very cool, with a lap top to bike along any google photographed road in the world, The ifit system bugs were horrible at first, but with their updates and progress it is great (no more frustrating than any tech device). You can even send maps and challenge a friend riding the real road in their neighborhood! You will need good Wifi signal where your bike is located!!! The bike itself is excellent...like any bike add a gel seat unless you have your own gel :) The workout setting and own pace with ifit maps is fantastic. The incline is unbelievably good. The bike makes only a wisp of air noise adding the realism as well as allowing for your headphones (plug in in bike) or stereo to be enjoyed along the virtual road.

Great hill training bike
Exceptional training for hill climbing. Seems almost tougher than the real thing. Tougher than any other trainer I've ever tried.

Best trainer EVER!
My husband races, and he thought this would be great for training during the colder months. Also, we live on a caostal plain, so he can't even find a hill to train on! This bike has it all. It can simulate any course, and when you hit the climbs, you definitely know it. I just train to be healthy and usually run. This bike gives me some diversity, and it is super-fun to ride.

A great way to start the off-season
The bike is awesome, once I was able to set up the console with our regular Saturday Routes it feels like I am not missing any training during the rainy, cold, or windy days of Fall and Winter. The only thing I had a bit of trouble was setting up the iFit console to connect with the network based on the enclosed instructions (and I went the extra mile to read them all). Fortunately, I am pretty well verse on computer and networking and was able to figure it out. Once you get the system set up; it is awesome. Did I write that it was AWESOME? Well, it is.

As billed. Serious workouts. Fantastic array of options. Making your own courses, ANYWHERE, and watching in Google Maps Streetview is a boredom-killer. Really silent too. Only negative-don't press the console with sweaty digits: a non-removable jet-black smudge appears which obscures the dial-I can't see cadence anymore.

I've had this bike for several months now. I must say that I really like it. The incline and decline are superb! It is super quiet and i can listen to my music and not have to worry about cranking it up to overpower the noise of the bike. The ergonomics are good. The only thing i have found is that when i stand to pedal my knees hit the handlebars (Im 6'1"). I have adjusted the bars up and have better success. The bike is easy to adjust and fits my wife as well who is 5'8". I love the Google map feature. I program in rides that i do on my regular bike and ride them and feel like it works me more than the real bike. Overall i've really enjoyed this bike. When weather prohibits riding outside, this bike is nice to have inside!!

When they unloaded our two indoor bikes we noticed you could see the metal, exposed, and roughed up and bent. We assembled the bikes, bent the metal bases back into shape, and touched up the black to cover scratches. We love the bikes but figured there should be more packaging to protect the product.

It makes indoor cycling fun
I am an engineer and I've had my TDF apart due to a maintenance issue. The mechanics of this bike are first class. The frame is beefy and the welds are quality. The lift motor and resistance motor appear solid. In my opinion, the wiring, while adequate, is not the same quality as the rest of the bike. When mounting the console to the handlebars, it is possible to pinch/nick the wires in the bars with the console mounting screws. I am not an elite cyclist, but this bike simulates riding a real bike quite well. I've mapped a couple of local routes with iFit and the hill changes are surprising accurate. Overall, this is a very clever product and several of my friends want to try it out.

Way Cool Bike
First off, I have never been a fan of stationary bikes. I always had the impression of a hamster in a wheel..However with the TDF along with IFit Live and being able to create my own maps, its ALMOST as good as riding my road bike without the traffic and bumps etc.The bike pretty faithfully follows the terrain and raises and lowers accordingly. Quality wise its built pretty well and is very sturdy. There was an issue with the console at first but that was quickly replaced and no more problems encountered. It appears that IFit is a work in progress. There are occasional glitches but they are working them out. One neat thing is they are starting competitions for the TDF. Overall I would highly recommend the bike for those long winter nights.
