Good Amazon Review
I’ve had it for about a month and I’m actually quite happy with it.
It really is pretty sturdy, I wouldn’t have thought it possible on a folding model.
The intensity dial seems to work well, and I find the amount of resistance well-balanced. It’s also almost completely quiet.
Bad Amazon Review
Everything about the exercise bike is fine except for it not being possible to lower the seat sufficiently to enable my wife, who is 5 feet 1 inch in height, to operate the pedals. So, use of the machine is limited to me whereas the intention was for both of us to use it.
For those looking for extra comfort when exercising there is the option to buy the model with a backrest. However, this does cost a little bit more but definitely worth it.
The Ultrasport foldable exercise bike is best suited to beginners as advanced users will require a harder workout. However, this is a very good exercise bike, if not the best foldable exercise bike UK customers can buy. If you are looking for an affordable and compact model with some good features this is well worth taking a look at.
