Comments about Exerpeutic LX9 Super High Capacity Training Cycle with Computer, Elbow Pads and Pulse Sensors:
Pluses - Well made, sturdy, easy to use. I don't think this thing will ever wear out. Computer very simple to use. Minuses - Not designed to hold handlebars with wrists parallel to the body like a mountain bike. Tension control not "numbered", so switching from a level to uphill type experience is a guess. Computer disply little hard to read. Water bottle bracket positioned so that you have to stop peddling to access. Neutral - Quite heavy so I would not consider that portable. Took two guys to take it up the stairs. Would not consider it compact either. Overall - It's what I was looking for in an exercise bike - Solid, simple and no frills.
