47 reviews for Loctek U1 Wellness Bike

  1. 5 out of 5

    :

    The seat is not uncomfortable, but as some have noted, depending your size you may find the front edge of the seat irritates your thighs. I think this is due to it being a semi-recumbent bike, and the seat is really more for a fully recumbent bike. The seat cutaways should be more pronounced to allow a full range of motion. (While you shouldn’t have to do this, solutions to consider if you run into this problem and want to keep the bike:

    :

    Even then it’s really only good for giving you a general idea of where your heart rate is at, I would not count on it for accuracy. As others have noted, if you intend to regularly adjust your seat height, be careful that you do not disconnect or pinch the pulse monitor wires.

  3. 5 out of 5

    :

    I had no issues with the computer or pulse monitor. I made sure the connections were tight and left slack in the pulse monitor cables when assembling the bike. You do obviously need to have both hands on the pulse sensors for them to work, and I found that it does not give a good reading unless your hands are slightly damp (sweat works fine).

  4. 5 out of 5

    :

    There are wheels on the rear support leg which allow you to roll the bike around when folded. This works great on hardwood, tile, berber, or other flat surfaces, but it becomes more like dragging when on carpet. The bike is light enough to pick up and carry around, but it’s not so light that I’d want to have to do so often.

  5. 5 out of 5

    :

    Be aware, Level 1 still offers a fair amount of resistance, and there is no level 0. There is a nice range, and the highest levels are definitely a challenge.

  6. 5 out of 5

    :

    Folding and unfolding the bike is fairly easy, there are two safety pins which secure the bike in either position. On the one hand, the bike is smaller overall than I was expecting, which was a pleasant surprise. However, you can’t push the legs closed all the way when collapsed and still use the safety pin to keep it locked in place. From what I can tell, the wider stance is to keep it balanced while folded, but it means it has a larger footprint.

  7. 5 out of 5

    :

    I bought this bike primarily to use with my standing desk so that I can get some extra exercise on days where I’m stuck working for several hours straight. It fits nicely under my 44″ high desk, and there’s plenty of room to pedal even with my keyboard tray at 39″. I have the seat set to the max height (about 27 3/4″ high), which is a little low for my setup, but is certainly usable. If you have a height-adjustable desk you should have no issues. I’m easily able to type while pedaling on resistance levels 1-3, which provide a pretty good workout.

    :

    I just received and assembled my Exerpeutic 400XL folding recumbent bike, and I am impressed. The build quality is at or even a bit above what I was expecting for a $149 piece of exercise equipment. The only thing that makes it look a bit cheap, in my opinion, is the way the wires are routed outside of the bike, however, it does make sense for easy access to the various connectors.

  9. 5 out of 5

    :

    I’ve found most home exercise equipment computers to be relatively unreliable. Caloric burn depends on body weight and other factors that you can’t program in (versus higher end bikes at a gym) so you can’t really rely on that.

  10. 5 out of 5

    :

    due to the mild winter in the Northeast it’s cycling season already! I was able to do my first ride of the season in the same amount of time it took to do the same ride at the end of last year by using this bike during the winter months.

  11. 5 out of 5

    :

    I recognize that as a piece of home fitness equipment with a relatively low cost (compared to gym level equipment) that it may only last a couple of years. That being said, it is easily much more cost effective than a gym membership even if you had to replace it every couple of years, esp.

  12. 5 out of 5

    :

    As an apartment dweller I was so pleased to find this (thanks Sky Mall magazine for the idea, but bigger thanks to Amazon for having it at a great price with super saver shipping too).

  13. 5 out of 5

    :

    It’s so quiet to the point that you don’t have to raise your TV volume if you like to work out that way and if others are sleeping you don’t have to worry about waking them up due to noise.

  14. 5 out of 5

    :

    I typically cycle about 1500 miles each year so it’s not as if I’m just starting to incorporate bikes into my fitness routine. The seat is very comfortable and the back support is wonderful. I don’t find myself dreading the idea of finally getting to 60 minutes because of the comfortable seat and back.

  15. 5 out of 5

    :

    I keep the tools handy and check the assembly points from time to time and give it a little snugging up, but it’s not as if the bolts are really loose. It’s just me being a tradesman’s daughter and raised with the idea of preventive maintenance. It compacts and moves easily with the small wheels on the back – I can move it with one hand.

  16. 5 out of 5

    :

    My bike arrived undamaged, but the plastic cover surrounding the flywheel was misaligned at the bottom on the front side. I was able to pop it back into place by loosening nearby screws. Assembly took about 30mins at a leisurely pace, and was easily completed by one person. The instructions were simple to follow, and tools are provided, though I used my own in some instances for a more comfortable grip.

  17. 5 out of 5

    :

    And as far as getting a really good workout on this bike is concerned, by the time I’m hitting levels 4 and 5 I’m really feeling it and need to have a small hand towel nearby to use along with about 24 oz of water for a 60 minute workout.

  18. 5 out of 5

    :

    It was easy to assemble, but must say that the instruction manual gives WAY too many diagrams of parts, etc. that aren’t needed to assemble it and makes it look more intimidating to assemble than it really is. It comes with a wrench and Phillips head screwdriver/Allen wrench and that’s all you’ll need. It took me about 45 minutes to assemble

  19. 5 out of 5

    :

    The pulse function is somewhat accurate, though I find it to be about 10-15 beats higher per minute than what my pulse rate really is. Better to rely on an analog clock for 15 seconds x4 to figure that one out, but the computer gives a general idea. I simply keep it on the timer function which is accurate.

  20. 5 out of 5

    :

    It’s been put together (more later) for about 24 hours. Did 3 miles before bed last night. Totally quiet and smooth. Seat is roomy and comfortable. Haven’t had to adjust seat, tried to do a best guess on position when I put it together. It seems to be perfect for what I want … getting off the couch while watching TV, streaming and be exercising.

  21. 5 out of 5

    :

    To be honest I was skeptical as to how sturdy this product would be and as to how much of a workout it would give. I have not been disappointed at all and in fact more pleased than I thought I’d be.

  22. 5 out of 5

    :

    Heavy box. Be home or have a way to make sure you don’t have to go somewhere and drag the package into your place (2nd floor apartment and I would have had a problem there-box even says “team lift”).

  23. 4 out of 5

    :

    Now, some heads up for putting together. I am a 5’5″ sixty something ageless Goddess. Not ignorant of assembling things but not a frequent flyer at Home Depot either. Opened the box and pulled out the instruction booklet before looking at what was packed.

  24. 5 out of 5

    :

    Love it. Simple, but built well. Great bike for the price

  25. 5 out of 5

    :

    Bottom line, at this point, very happy with the purchase. I’ll add updates later as to how effective I think it is … but a lot of that will also depend on my discipline!

  26. 5 out of 5

    :

    MEASUREMENTS WHEN COMPACTED: Back leg to front leg – about 20″, back leg to the frontmost part – about 27″, widest point (handgrips) – about 24″, height – about 47″. The footprint of this unit when compacted is about the same as a standard kitchen chair.

  27. 5 out of 5

    :

    Haven’t tried folding and moving yet, as I won’t have a need to do that often and it is heavy in the mid section. Back brace has little rollers in it, so I don’t think rolling will be difficult.

  28. 5 out of 5

    :

    Since it’s a different design vs. a road bike I was wondering if the right muscles would be conditioned and was happily surprised to find that they were. I cannot begin to emphasize how pleased I continue to be with this product.

  29. 5 out of 5

    :

    This is Mrs. Howard and I purchased this bike in April 2016 so I’ve had plenty of time to use it and form an opinion before writing my review. I wanted something that I could use in the living room while watching TV that was compact and could move out of the way easily. This bike delivers everything I wanted. I’m really glad there were so many other reviews online when I originally went to purchase this bike and I have to agree.

  30. 5 out of 5

    :

    Of note regarding the written directions; sometimes they are written from the perspective of one side and without noting, it switches to the other side. Also read carefully when putting on the pedals, as one side screws on one direction and the other side the opposite. Overall, not that bad. All the tools and screws, etc. needed are included.

  31. 5 out of 5

    :

    Thumbed through it and hit the “Oh sh**” page pictured below. Don’t freak out, the actual items unpacked are also pictured below. It took a few hours because I took my time, read and re-read the somewhat obtuse directions and interspersed some other activities too. There were a couple of times an extra set of hands would have been helpful but I did it anyway.

  32. 5 out of 5

    :

    It has been great. Changing the resistance is pretty simple and it is effective. I know I will do more variations, like interval, etc., but also have already ordered a walking/biking dvd of the lavender fields in Provence. I’m thinking with my lavender oil in my diffuser and the dvd on, I should have a great time!

  33. 5 out of 5

    :

    The best exercise bike in this price range. No complaints.

  34. 5 out of 5

    :

    This is a great bargain bike except the seat is so ridiculously uncomfortable. I cycle on it 60 minutes a day, and that’s all my butt can take. I have to sit on the bunch of towels to make it through. Easy to put together. Very quiet.

  35. 5 out of 5

    :

    I’m surprised how little sound this bike makes! I love it!!!

  36. 5 out of 5

    :

    Only giving 4 stars because it’s only day 1 but I am beyond excited! This bike it exactly what I was hoping for! It is compact but sturdy, rides smoothly, and SUPER QUIET! My sister who was skeptical because of the online shopping and cheap price even admitted that it seems like a great buy! Also, very easy to assemble!

  37. 5 out of 5

    :

    Solid construction– very sturdy– comes with all the tools necessary for assembly– very pleased. Just need a quick cardio workout a couple of times of day– don’t need a gym membership for that, and now I have no excuse. 🙂 Looked at a few others and decided to go with this one. There are lots of other high-end bikes, but this one perfect for me.

  38. 5 out of 5

    :

    My main concern while buying the exercise cycle was noise and smoothness. I didn’t want to disturb my roommate or my neighbours with the noise..

    I am very happy with this cycle. It took me about 30-40mins to assemble it, the procedure is very clear. It is completely silent so I can cycle early morning or late night as well. It is very smooth, and comfortable.

  39. 5 out of 5

    :

    Received the product today. It’s very easy to assemble. Works fine and I am completely satisfied. Hopefully it last long as well. Thank you for your great service.

  40. 5 out of 5

    :

    Rather easy to assemble and operate. In about 30 mins I was already using my bike (I was taking my sweet time putting it together, too). Serves its purpose well; the bike is very quiet and does not take up much space at all. Nice and sturdy as well.

  41. 5 out of 5

    :

    I am extremely happy with this little bike. I needed something portable and still give me a moderate work out and this does a great job. I’m 5’8 and it fits nicely. I get a good workout for someone who just wants a moderate bike ride. The tension can be ramped up for those wanting a heavier work out but that’s not my need. After a month now it does have a bit of a squeak from one of the pedals but it seems to come and go and doesn’t bother me otherwise it’s actually pretty quiet. Easily lifts and rolls out of the way when I need to move or store it.

    Easy to assemble. Met every expectation.

    Great product at a low price!

  44. 5 out of 5

    :

    I bought this bike about a month ago and based my decision on all the reviews I read on line. It definitely deserves a five star rating. I could not be more pleased with a purchase.

  45. 5 out of 5

    :

    I’ve had a rough beginning with this bike. The first one arrived with the plastic wheel cover broken. It couldn’t be assembled due to the plastic pieces being lodged inside of the wheel. The replacement arrived and everything looked good, but one of the lug nuts had apparently been stripped in the factory. It was a big chore just to get it off of the pedal, not to mention getting it to thread again. Everything else assembled with ease. The assembly of the bike probably would’ve only taken about 20 minutes if I had not had to deal with the stripped lug nut. The seat is a bit large, making it somewhat uncomfortable, but it is very quiet. I think it’s a pretty good piece of equipment.

    Really good product for the price. I love the side bike seat. Not uncomfortable to use.

    Love this thing! Very sturdy yet easy to move around. Display is great also.
