    Easy to pedal

    This was purchased for my Dad, as he needed to use it for therapy after having hip surgery. He uses a similar one at the therapists office, but to do some pedaling at home, this comes in handy. It was easy to install -- good instructions - and he uses it often. You can even sit it on a table, and move it with your arms, for upper body therapy too, for strengthening of the arms.

    Not Worth The Money

    This product was advertised to use with you favorite easy chair. We tried the easy chair, straight chair, sofa nothing worked. The "cycle" kept moving away (wouldn't stay in place) Tried using on floor, rug, and rubber mat...same thing. Don't bother with this product.

    Great for portable use

    A helpful item to exercise muscles, especially when a person isn't in their best condition. It's also good for people who are not steady on their feet because it can be used sitting down.

  4. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    I would buy it again

    My students love this exerciser

  5. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Good product for senior fitness, both legs & arms.

    I was pleasantly surprised at the convenience of the pedal exerciser. Purchased for my husband who has back problems and needs to keep his muscles active in preparation for surgery soon. He uses it for both arms and legs to keep up his stamina.

  6. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Difficult to put together. Too lightweight and moves alot.

    Bought to strengthen wrists after carpel tunnel surgery.

  7. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    Great for the arms. Too light to do leg excerise.

    It is great to do arm excerise, but not leg. It moves too much.

  8. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    It get hot and then sticks.

    It moves around when using this product and after a few revolutions it starts to stick. Can't adjust the tension on it. It was cheap and made very cheaply. I would not recommend this to anyone.

    Chrome Pedal Exerciser

    I was in the hospital for a long while and when I came home I needed to build my strength back up.

  10. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    easy to assemble

    Had knee issues, Dr. Said walk. Couldn't because of knee, but he said this machine would be helpful to my recovery.

  11. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Cheap

    I needed help to get the pins in. I don't have the strength to wrap them around the bars - poor design in my opinion.

  12. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

  13. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Pretty Bummed

    totally bummed when put together and all the screws are still loose. the product is not well made. and it is so light it doesnt stay in place to cycle anyway. waste of money.

  14. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Didn't work for us

    I bought for my 84 year old father to use while watching TV. He has some weakness in his legs, and we thought this would help with strength and mobility. The product was not stable enough for him to use. I tried using it and had the same issue. We are returning the product.

  15. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    A little wobbly, but is good for someone with little mobilit

    wobbly

  16. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    To much hype

    Product when in use keeps on sliding on floor. Not stationary, so hard to keep pedaling, also straps are way too big for foot rest, keeps slipping off.

  17. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Pedal to nowhere

    The exerciser was so,light weight that it had to be weighted down to use. I used it 30 minutes a day for five days. On the sixth day the bar holding the pedals broke off while I was using it. A very inferior product. Not up to the standards normally expected from Harriet Carter.

  18. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Great product for people who need to get moving

    very useful

  19. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    It broke apart after using just 3 days. It is not any good.

    I hoped I found an excerize product that I could use at home while cooped up in the winter, but it fell apart after only a few days.

    Chrome Pedal Exerciser

    Need help putting straps on my feet and taking off.

  21. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    LIKE IT, BUT BAD INSTRUCTIONS

    HARD TO ASSEMBLE. NEED NEW DIRECTIONS

  22. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    written instructions please

    This chrome pedal exerciser was not what I expected. When I opened the box and looked for the instructions. I only found picture instructions. So I struggled to follow the picture and assemble it. I did not like the use of pins. I don't think I have them placed correctly. The exercise does not stay in place when in use it slides all over the carpet and the floor. I will continue to use it by trying to brace up against something stable. Overall I am not impressed.

  23. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Screws & bolts weren't included with the item.Went to store.

    No screws or bolts were included to put the bike together. We had to go to the hardware store & buy them seperately. I would not recommend this product.

  24. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Very good

    Exercise while watching TV

  25. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    useless

    DO NOT buy this product, when u peddle it moves, the foot strap won't stay on, it is NOT Usable, save your money.

  26. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    works great

    use it most nights while watching tv

  27. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    WORTHLESS!!!

    This item looks heavy, or like it could hold its own weight when placed on the floor or table. However, it's so light that the instance you put any pressure on the petals, it moves. That defeats the whole purpose. The only option is to nail/screw it to the floor. Not worth the trouble to return it. Will just toss.

  28. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    would think twice before buying

    Slips away when pedalling unless you secure it down. Gets metal hot after exercising for 10_15 minutes. Straps break easy, because not made for wearing shoes.

    (7480) Chrome Pedal Exerciser

    It is really a piece of junk. Would not recommend it to anyone. You get what you pay for.

  32. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Poor quality

    This was replacing a pedal exciser that I brought years ago and recently broke This replacement is no way like my previous one. The rubber on the bottom was not flat like the bottom of my first and just slid on the floor; it has nothing to grip the floor. Also the pedal arm slid as you pedaled as you could not adjust it any tighter. I returned the exciser as I was very disappointed in the quality of same.

  33. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Great Little Exerciser

    I use it in kitchen, as I can sit sideways in chair and pay bills, watch TV, etc.

  34. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    needs a little upgrade

    upgrading pedal straps would be good and sturdier cotter pins or substitute. we repaired with a piece of copper to hold pedal strap

  35. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    will not hold up

    At first this was great!I could feel the workout;but after less than a month the pedal broke and melted off after having gotten hot during 10 min of use.

  36. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    great petal exercisor

    gift to my 90 yr old sister. found if placed on rug turned upside down with rubber backing in contact with exerciser it would not scoot away from her as she petaled. otherwise it must be anchored for use on carpet. She loves it. I will be ordering one for myself and one for my daughter.

  37. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    Serves the purpose

    Place where the cotter pins are should have holes closer together so there would not be so much play for the pedals to be turned

  38. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Great for my knees

    I ride my bicycle to work. When it rains I can't. When winter comes I can't. This gives my knees a good work out!

  39. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    chrome pedal exerciser

    this product is difficult to use. it is too light, not steady, when trying to pedal it continues to move. need more weight to hold in place.

  40. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    NO MORE EXCUSES

    A nifty mat needs to come with this, as it slides on the floor. The straps are pretty useless. It is good for the arms as well and can use almost anywhere.

  41. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    Fair for the purpose

    Use it while at home in front of TV. My very fragile foot bones do not allow for stressful exercises. I use hand weights while peddling for upper body work out. You must get a rubber mat to keep exerciser from sliding on any surface, carpet, tile or wood flooring.

  42. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    highly over rated!

    We tried using this device to strengthen our arms and legs, as per directions. As we started pedaling, the device kept falling apart. We took out our tools and tightened all the screws and nuts. That did not help. It is a good concept, but the materials were VERY INFERIOR..The metal frame was so light, it was necessary to put it against a wall to hold it in place.

  43. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Piece of cake

    I do not like assembling anything and a male friend of mine who recently purchased this told me it took 2 guys 3 hours to assemble his. I had already ordered this prior to his comments and was terribly nervous. It took 15 minutes to assemble...Woo Hoo. I purchased this to help with some mobility issues after throwing my back out and it appears to be doing the job.

  44. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    Exerciser for therapy

    My husband is using this as part of his therapy for rotator cuff surgery and it is helping with the healing process.

  45. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    This works reasonably well

    This bike is easy to assemble and works well. It is light-weight and tends to travel on carpet, but if braced against furniture is quite useful.

  46. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    I would never buy this again

    I bought this for my husband to use while he's sitting at his desk and he used it for 10 minutes on two occasions then on the 3rd occasion after 10 minutes the pedal melted and broke.

  47. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    good exersise for new knee Just right.

    It has allowed me to improve mobility in my new Knee. Easy to put together and looks good.

  49. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Great for leg therapy

    My husband had a knee operation and the therapist recommended an exercise bike, this was more economical.

  50. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Cheep Made !

    Get the bandages & meds, you will need them. The cotter pins will cut you up. Washers arn't close enough to hold it together. In time you will trash it.

  51. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    EASY RIDER

    Happy to have it. I exercise my legs for 30 minutes, while watching my favorite morning show. I switch to my arms midway through the program. The best thing is that it's so light weight that you can pick it up with 2 fingers and carry it from room to room. Because of the siz, storage is no problem. I have heart issues, and this exercise is perfect for me to bring my heart rate up at the start of my day.

  52. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Useless even for arms

    I put it together, tried it 1 x. Adjusted the tension to maximum and even an out-of-shape 100 year old could pedal it easily so it's useless for its intended purpose.

  53. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Did not have the screws, etc. in the box

    Could not put it together because of parts missing. That totally made me loss interest. I was told I would be reimbursed for this item.

  54. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Not Happy

    This was missing parts. Seems to "slip" away from me when I use it.

  55. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    Does what I need!

    I have had a very hard recovery from a knee injury and this is gentle enough that I can start working out my knee. I hope it will help me on my recovery. It is not the sturdiest but it was very inexpensive and it will do for now.

  56. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    Works well for the elderly

    I bought it for my 86 yr old mother. She loves it.

  57. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Looks good but isn't

    This product was good in the beginning. But as time went by the product broke on one side. The product was not strong enough.

  58. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    needs support so it won'tn slip

    I use it to help make my legs stronger. Make sure to put some kind of non slip item under it so it won't slip all over the floor.

  59. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Poorly advertised

    Item received is not the same as the picture in the catalog. The pic in the catalog has an extra support piece over the top to keep the tension knob from breaking off. I had to buy and rig my own brackets and metal wire to make that more stable.

  60. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Not all that good

    this item is put together with cotter pins which does not hold it together well - and the tension bar slides back and forth. I am just glad that I did not get this for a gift for anyone, I would have been very embarrassed. It slides all over the floor when you try to peddle it. Only really good for the arms.

  61. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Junk

    A piece of junk! Started wobbling after 2 mins. of use. Cannot get it apart to send it back.

  63. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Cheaply made!!

    After finally completing assembly, I decided it certainly wasn't worth the time or money and returned it within a couple of days! Very dissappointed with the quality!

  64. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Missing too many parts

    Never was able to put it together too many parts were missing. Will not get another one I will just find something local so I can make sure it works properly

  65. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Cheap, Cheap, Cheap.

    Not a durable enough for what it would be used for. Cheap materials used to put it together. Very disappointed in the item over-all.

  73. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    Not like the photo

    Photo shows what looks like hand grips.There are none. I want to use it to exercise rotator cuffs. Now I must use foot pedals for hand grips. Really?

  75. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Not too pleased with this purchase

    This was easy to put together but design was very lose and unsteady, could not operate on carpeted floor but bare floor was much better. Wanted to use under by desk at work but it's not going to work for that.

  76. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    Don't judge a book by it's cover!

    I really appreciate the simplicity but effectivenes of the pedal exerciser! I am disabled and my mobility is limited. The exerciser allows me to work my leg and arm muscles so that I may build my strength back in order to move more freely. Thank you so very much! Laissez les bon temp rouler!

    pore quality. steal petal bar brakes

    I got 2 of these one for a friend and myself to use while at work sitting at our desks. Both of them broke. The steal peddle bar breaks in half. Very pore construction. I would not recommend .

  78. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    Good & Bad

    In using, was too light weight and moved across floor as I pedaled. Also, pedal stras were small and hurt my feet....Probably great for a smaller person. I have found a larger version and works OK.

  79. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    I would NOT suggest this item!

    I was very dissatisfied with this for "exercises"!

  80. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    It's a joke!!

    I am really disappointed with this product. The pedal assembly sits crooked on the frame and therefore is difficult to use for leg exercising....and that's the main reason I purchased it.

  81. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    HUNK OF JUNK

    It's awkward to put together,does not stay in one place,not stable,does not have lock nuts for screws. As it's being used,the motion rattles the screws and nuts loose. And the plastic straps are useless. In theory,this is a good idea,in reality,it's just a piece of junk. Do not waste your money unless you want to pay shipping both ways.
