FINALLY! AFFORDABLE BIG AND TALL BIKE! 390lb 6'5" owner!
Reviewed in the United States on May 22, 2018
Perfect for BIG AND TALL. I am very pleasantly surprised. I have not done a product review in awhile and felt I needed to on such a great purchase. Now bear in mind I have been the owner of this bike exactly 1 hour out of the box, and 24 hours in the box. I will check back in after I have owned it longer for update. First, when I purchased this I was worried, because the ad says 400lbs but in another review they stated their bike said 325lbs. This likely won't matter to most owners, however I am a solid 390 lbs and 6'5". This bike is apart of my plan for weight loss, and I know I will push to it's weight, height and thus stability limits. I almost did not purchase because of that review and a picture showing 325 lb weight limit. It looked really rugged though, and for under $190 on sale I decided to give it a shot as most bikes in the 400lb class have been professional equipment costing more then $1,300. The first thing I have noticed is the sticker on my bike indeed says weight capacity 400 lbs! (picture included) Excellent! It looks to be that rugged to! This thing is a beast in regards to weight, and the size of the frame, and the gauge of the steel....the pictures so far have not done it justice. Still even putting it together being a fold-able I wondered how much it would rock once I had it extended to height max and put my 390lbs in motion. Putting it together was easy, and I have before given a very negative review for another product because of cheap screws and hardware, so I take that seriously. This not only comes with excellent quality hardware, but all wrenches and a driver. You do not have to have a single tool to put this together. I had it up and ready in 30 minutes to an hour. I placed it in front of my TV, watching a POV cycling 4k video on youtube in teh Alps and started to ride away. I am not fit, I have been a couch/gaming potatoe for years now, but 5 miles later perfectly smooth operation on about 6-7 resistance and I felt great. It was rock solid, I did not wobble at all. I could even sit up and rock arms like walking while I cycled with no rocking of bike. The seat is ROOMY, plenty of cushion and perfect for fat bottomed boys and girls, or anyone who doesn't want circulation cut off of their perineum, and cause nerve damage to their nether region. Also I was concerned about leg reach, I am 6'5" and most of that is in my legs. Not only does max setting allow me to fully straighten my legs....but after biking awhile I actually took it down a notch for more comfort at my pace. So realistically my guess is some 6'7 owners could use this as it has room for taller then myself. Like all things mechanical time will tell the truth of how rugged this bike and its mechanisms are, but so far i can not believe the quality at this price point. Hopefully next time I log in it will still be doing well and I will be much less then 390 lbs. :D (Also I plan on seeing if I can set this up for a VR cycling bike....we shall see, as that depends on availability of VirZoom kits) For this price I highly recommend it, and I may get a second one for my wife so we can cycle together......this may very be more then just a nice purchase, it could be the purchase that saves or at least enhances my life. Thank you Exerpeutic!
