    A mixed bag – fit first, problems aplenty, not “complete”, March 11, 2007

    If you want a decent book about bike fit, this might be a book for you. But I have mixed feelings about this book, and overall wouldn’t recommend it if you’re expecting a complete medical guide for cyclists. Despite its title, this book is not “complete,” as claimed. It doesn’t touch on a lot of issues for riders, like riding in cold weather, for instance. Arnie Baker’s book is more complete (“Bicycling Medicine”). Pruitt’s main focus seems to be on bike fit, and here he seems to know what he’s talking about, even if his ideal approach is inaccessible to readers of the book (you have to go to his lab and get reflectors put on you and a movie made). The book is very thin. At its best, this means the author is concise, and some of his insights are great. At its worst, the book seems superficial. The section on supplements is most troublesome. Here, the author seems compromised and conflicted. He allows a physician who has a particular view of hormones, supplementation, and athletics to essentially write in the book, and even to push his products. I was a little insulted by this. Overall, this book probably wasn’t worth the money for me — it isn’t complete, and has a lot of internal deficiencies.

    Excellent Resource but not as complete as I’d like, January 9, 2007

    I have far higher expectations than most when it comes to details, so I may want more than you do… Andy Pruitt does a great job of bringing together the state of the art in terms of basic issues with fit and cycling-related challenges. The book is well written and well organized, and covers just about anything a serious new rider would need to know; I see it as a must-have for anyone in the business of selling bikes so that their customers get good advice in a world where truly awful advice still reigns… in my 20+ years of racing and ultra events, I’ve seen or felt nearly every issue described in this book, and I would have appreciated the information years ago… where it falls short are in the finer points of fit when it comes to less common challenges or body types– I’m constantly asked for advice from hard-to-fit cyclists and it would be good to have more detailed science behind some of the information in this book in order to better understand how to make tradeoffs in less-than ideal situations. Another area that would be helpful would be more information on the linkage between bike fit and performance, at least in terms of how small changes can make a big difference when you get into the details… all in all, I count this book a winner because it brings together a lot of information that’s out there but not so easily found or digested.

    The bottom line– The average cyclist will definitely benefit from using the information in this book. Every bike shop and bike sales-person shouldn’t sleep at night if they don’t have at least a basic knowledge of this information. Bike racers absolutely must know these things or they’re wasting energy and maybe even doing harm to their bodies out there.

    Great buy! Very happy!, July 20, 2015

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    Arrived quickly and is a great spin bike. Living in Hawaii it is hard to find group workout classes. I have a gym close to my house where I do all of my heavy weight training but the only “classes” they offer, is a yoga class twice a week. I missed spin class so much so I took a chance on this brand since the price was right! This bike is solid and was very simple to assemble. It is definitely strong (not weak and wobbly like some of the other bikes I have tried/seen in stores) and can withstand the weight of myself (140 pounds) , and my husband (175 pounds) when he has tried it out. I am very pleased with the intensity setting as well… I was honestly really nervous about ordering a product I couldn’t find a lot about when I did my web searches but much to my surprise it is awesome! Cheers to staying fit and healthy!

    Awesome machine at this price point., December 12, 2015
    By 

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    For those questioning the lack of reviews, this is an awesome machine. When I was researching a new upright bicycle for my wife and I, there were a myriad of options. But I being 280 lbs, was left with fewer options than most. But then I found this bike and all the specs I needed were provided in this bike. I was turned off at first for to the lack of reviews, but then I did the leg work (no pun intended) and found a few write ups on this particular machine, and was very satisfied with what I found. So I went ahead and pulled the trigger. I received my bike within two days and assembled it immediately, and it couldn’t have been a simpler build. My wife and I have both put it through it’s paces and are more than satisfied.

    Pros: adjustable in almost every facet, smooth spin,and comfortable.

    Cons: Lcd is very basic, but in the age of the smart phone, it mattered very little.

    Cheap, unsteady product., January 12, 2016

    This review is from: Tauki Indoor Upright Exercise Bike W/ LCD Monitor Cycling Bike for Health and Fitness (Misc.)
    Waste of money!!! This product was obviously made in a foreign country because the instructions were written in very poor, hard to understand English phrases, a lot of which didn’t make any sense. There was no guide as to what parts I was supposed to have (I ended up with 3 extra pieces). Very frustrating to put together because of the ridiculously horrible instructions. Plus I had to take one of the pedals to Home Depot because it was on so tightly, I wasn’t able to get it apart to put on the final bolt. The 6’5″ man at Home Depot had to use 2 different tools to get the piece apart! I know this wasn’t correct, because the other pedal came apart very easily. I’ve already had additional problems with this pedal, as the bolt fell off again (1 month in, while riding) and became wobbly and unsteady.

    I will be selling this POS to someone who doesn’t care about having a good product and will be looking for a better quality, more reliable product.

    If you want to be frustrated beyond belief while putting together (and I usually have great patience for assembling items) and want to work out on an unsteady bike that falls apart while you’re riding it, then by all means, purchase. If not, STAY AWAY!!
