Complete Disaster

Comments about Marcy Recumbent Exercise Bike ME-709:

I purchased this bike from Academy Sports a few years ago. I used it daily and stored it in my living room right in front of the television. It gave me the results I needed for about 6 months and then fell apart. I fit the weight requirement for using this exercise equipment and was unpleasantly surprised when it fell apart. The entire seat fell off during exercise. The pole that runs along the backside bent completely in half and I was almost seriously injured. Upon inspection I noticed that it was completely bent after a few months of use. I didn't bother contacting customer service even though I purchased a warranty that would have replaced it. There is no way I want another incident like this to happen. I have purchased a different brand and am about the same size I was when this happened I have no problems with the new bike. The bike is on the cheaper end for a reason. You get what you pay for. I was using it daily for 30 to 60 minutes. There is no way it should've bent or given me any problems like that. Beware there is a huge price to pay for buying items like this. The frame is flimsy and its not prepared for heavy daily use. Which is what I am always looking for in my fitness equipment. If you only have 20lbs or so to lose then this may work well for short term use.

Good Exercise Bike

By 

from USA

Comments about Marcy Recumbent Exercise Bike ME-709:

I ordered this bike this year since the weather where I live is not always optimal for going outside and getting a workout. While it was not the easiest thing to put together I have to say I do like this bike, it is really quiet and does not make a lot of noise while you are on it. Great for if you live in an apartment and don't want to make a lot of noise. I like that it counts the calories and you can change the resistance on it. The only thing I wish it would have is an some settings for workouts and a heart monitor. Other than that a very good piece of equipment.

awesome exercise bike for people with knee problems

By 

from Raymond, NH

Comments about Marcy Recumbent Exercise Bike ME-709:

I bought the Marcy Recumbent exercise bike because, I have degenerative cartilage in my knees real bad. one is just a step away from having a knee replacement. I was using a regular upright exercise bike and could only do a few minutes 5 - 10 minutes at a time. I am now up to 25 minutes on my new bike in only one months time. It's so much easier and I hope to add to that as time goes on. I am now getting the exercise I need to, so I can strengthen my muscles in my legs in hopes of making it longer before having to get a knee replacement,or maybe non at all if I stay with it. I well hopefully also benefit from losing weight at the same time, which will also help. I Love my new bike.

Performance
works very well

Comfort
seat can be a little uncomfortable after awhile, but not to bad.

Ease of Use
very easy

Durability
very durible

Design
Awesome design, get looks

Basic Bike

By 

from Milaca, MN

Comments about Marcy Recumbent Exercise Bike ME-709:

I bought the Marcy recumbent bike back in february and I will say I really do like it. It is alot better then a regular exercise bike because of where the handles are and it is definitely better on the our backs then a regular exercise bikes "the main reason I bought it" plus it is comfortable to sit it compared to regular exercise bikes. The seat does seem wider compared to other bikes which is also nice and doesn't seem to make your butt as sore. You definitely get a good workout from it. It was very easy to put it together.
