We are interested to see what is to come from this brand as they continue to research, develop, and grow.

Basic Features

You will get all the basic features you expect when you decide to go with this indoor bike. The seat is adjustable in four ways to ensure you have a great position that keeps you comfortable for long rides. It has a cup holder that will accommodate a variety of bottle sizes. You will also be able to quickly and easily change the resistance level no matter where you are in your workout. This bike will keep your feet in a great position as well. They have straps on them to lock your feet down. Lastly, this bike also features an emergency brake. If you find yourself needing to stop quickly you will simply press down on the resistance knob and it will stop the flywheel from spinning.

Advanced Features

While this model has a good variety of basic features it is lacking in advanced features. You won't be getting many bells and whistles when you decide to go with this product by ANCHEER. It does have an LCD display. With this, you will be able to easily see the number of calories you have burned, how fast your pace is, and the distance you have traveled. It also has a heart rate monitor. This will give you the ability to stay in your target heart rate zone to ensure you are burning fat, building muscle, or improving strength. Whatever your goal may be, you will be able to achieve it more easily because of this feature. As you can see, there are not any majorly advanced features but the ones it does have are great for improving your routine.

Pedals

This bike has standard sized pedals. They are made of an aluminum alloy that is very durable. Consumers have noted that you will want to wear shoes or very thick socks while pedaling this item. This is due to the fact that there are nubs on the pedals to help keep your feet in place and if trying to use it barefoot it could cause you some pain. As noted above, you will be able to lock your feet into place with the secure straps that are attached to each pedal. This makes your thrust better and you won't have to focus on slipping feet. These pedals are removable so if you don't like them you will be able to pick up a different set and switch them out. This is great news for those that like to use SPD or other spin style pedals.

Comfort

Overall, customers are very happy with the level of comfort they have with this option. It has been noted several times that the seat is a bit wobbly even when fully tightened. This is not necessarily uncomfortable as much as it is annoying. Some do find the seat to be a bit less than stellar but say a simple gel cushion over the seat can seriously improve the level of comfort. The secure foot strapping also adds to your comfort when biking. It gives you a secure fit so you can sit or stand while peddling. You will have a variety of positions that you can hold your hands in. On the whole, you will be able to make adjustments throughout the seat to ensure you can find an optimal level of comfort.

Resistance

This product offers easily adjustable resistance levels. With the simple turn of a knob, you will be able to increase or decrease the resistance. The resistance is provided by felt pads. Customers have noted that as you add more resistance you may notice a smell coming from them. This tends to go away after a bit of time. Having the ability to easily switch up the resistance level will give you the freedom to challenge yourself or take it down a bit when feeling exceptionally fatigued. Obviously, when you can challenge yourself more and move every day you will see better results and the resistance this offers will do exactly that. As noted above, the handle that is used to increase and decrease resistance is also a hand brake. It will allow you to stop immediately if for any reason you need to.

Drive

This bike uses a typical belt drive. Belt drives are an excellent choice when you want a quiet and smooth ride. Chain drives are also quiet but they don't give you nearly as smooth of a ride as a belt driven bike. There have been no reports from consumers about durability issues in the belt. This is a common problem with many other options that are available to you from this category. If for some reason it does snap or break, you can order a replacement so that you can continue to use your bike. Overall, this is a good choice for a drive. The flywheel weighs forty pounds which also ensures a smooth and comfortable ride. Consumers are thrilled with the quietness of this product. It will allow you to enjoy a plethora of different activities while you bike.

Dimensions

This bike is a bit longer than others but it really is a slim design. It is forty-two and a half inches long and less than twenty inches wide. It will easily fit into most home gyms. While the height is not typically a major issue for customers, this bike is a bit tall. It comes in at forty-four and a half inches. One awesome aspect is that this product can hold up to three hundred and thirty pounds. This will allow those of you starting out on your weight loss journey to feel comfortable and secure while using this bike. It is also important to note that this bike has wheels on the frame for easy relocation. This will allow you to free up space in your gym so you have room to practice other activities.

Assembly

There are not a whole lot of pieces to put together when you get this bike. What this gives you is a fast and convenient set-up process. Most people are saying it takes less than an hour to get this product put together. It comes with everything you need and the instructional manual is quite simple as well. Even if you are not mechanically inclined you will be able to put this item together with relative ease. Simply take your time and you will be able to pedal as much as you please very quickly. There have been a few reports from customers that say they preferred to use their own tools as the ones that come with it are not the best quality. Overall, this is a very easy bike to put together and customers are thrilled with the fact that they don't have to put much effort into it at all.

Advantages

Disadvantages

As with all products, this one does have a few disadvantages that come along with it.

This can be exceptionally annoying if there is something wrong with your item. As mentioned before, the seat is also a bit wobbly, even after being completely tightened. This is more of an inconvenience than a disadvantage. The only other thing that people are complaining about is the durability of the plastic pieces. You will want to be careful while assembling so you don't break anything and end up having to buy replacement pieces.

Value

We would consider this product to have an average value. Overall, customers are very pleased with their purchase but there are some cons that come along with it. The price tag that it carries is a bit loftier than others that offer the same or even better features. Obviously, this takes away from the value of this product. Some budgets may have to do a bit of work to fit this item in. You may even find that you have to take a bit of time to save up for it. It is a basic design that offers good durability and will be able to challenge you regardless of your level of fitness. These things working its favor. There are a plethora of exercise bikes on the market today and while there are many that are much more expensive and others that are a bit cheaper this one is a solid option.

Bottom Line

This up-and-coming brand has offered a pretty solid piece of fitness equipment with this one. You will be able to bring your spin class home which in turn will help you achieve your goals more easily. It offers good basic features in a couple of advanced ones that customers are pleased with. It may take you a bit of time to save up the money to buy it and if the price may vary depending on where you purchase it from. You will have a comfortable and quiet ride when you go with us option.
