Marcy Recumbent Bike Reputation
The fact that the bike is easy on the wallet and on your posterior is one of the most attractive features of the bike. Assembly took roughly an hour, which is exceptional compared to some other recumbent exercise bikes. Users were stunned at the noiseless operating level and reveled in the value that they feel they received. One reviewer is a 240 pound, 5 foot tall, 75 year old. If it’s safe enough for her it’s safe enough for anyone, and apparently her adult children can’t pull her off it. She absolutely loves it. She slides on and off easily and feels exceptionally comfortable in the seat. Even with her short legs (5 feet tall, remember) the slight reach for the pedals is not overly extensive or hard on her back in the least.
The positioning of the handles even assists this woman in getting in and out of the seat. According to her children she’s almost as excited about this bike as her grandchildren are on Christmas morning. Many reviewers reported assembly time at approximately 1 hour and even though the instructions call for this to be a two-person job, it was easily done by one person in many cases. One woman in particular exercises on this recumbent cycle next to her baby’s crib while it sleeps. The bike is so quiet that it never disturbs the child. Now that’s quiet! Another reviewer reported amazing results after using the bike for one month for 20 minutes a day; this reviewer has lost 30 pounds. Congratulations!
