nice ride! settings are easy, so far the seat netting has held up as of this review. would have liked a better place to mount ipod but Velcro is a good work around. Must do miles!!!
2 months of using the LS6.0R exercise bike and enjoying every work out. It's buuilt solid, operates smoothly, and comes with a good varierty of programs. So far my wife and I can't find anything wrong with it!

We received the 6.0 R as a Christmas gift from our kids. I had seen the bike on display at Dicks and really liked how it felt. My wife and I assembled the bike in 90 minutes using only the 2 tools that came with it. The instructions were well written and the predrilled holes all aligned nicely. The bike is very solid and very quiet. I would strongly recommend this bike to anyone looking for a health club quality machine at a fair price.

This unit developed a knocking sound inside the enclosed pedal area about two months after we received it. I haven't disassembled it yet to find the problem. It is irritating to spend this much money on something and have to disassemble it less than a year of purchase.
Other than that, I think it has more thoughtful features and a sleek design (recumbent is the way to go on exercise units). The seat is not as comfortable as I had hoped, but it is cooler than a solid back that the other models tested had.

Very good, BUT
Upholstry on the backrest coming un-done.
How to use the computer updates opaque and did not make it work.
No mechanical problems with the drive train.
Overall meets but does not exceed myy goals.
wouldn't really call it recumbent, more of a vertical posture. important to me because chemo therapy gave me anal fissures androids, so my bum is very tender regardless, was able to do 45 min workout to keep up strength ahead of upcoming surgery, my wife did most of the assembly, good assembly instructions. I may try to bend seat bracket to get more of a recline posture
Nice machine in general
I have had this bike for about 6 months now. It's comfortable and there are more features on it than I really use. The seat slides forward and backward well enough to match my height (5'6") as well my boyfriend's (6'1"). The display works well, but be forewarned- it counts up, not down, so if you are one to see how much time you have left be prepared to do some math!
The other thing I like about it is the built-in speakers. It's handy to be able to plug the music into the machine and fiddle with it there than to have to have a separate system not on the bike and be forced to work through a bad song or stop the workout to change it.
The only real downside to the bike is the size of the seat back. It seams that it's really a "one size fits all" seatback height, which means it's really best for someone bigger than I am. It's not too much of a problem, but can get tiresome during the last minutes of a longer workout. It would be nicer if the seatback height could be adjusted as well as the seat bottom slides.
