The full specs of the Epic A17U are:

Other features of the Epic A17U include a wireless chest strap (free) and grip pulse sensors on the handlebars, a 4" cooling fan, an MP3/iPod plug-in with built in speakers, and the on-board iFit technology which offers additional workouts and a racetrack simulation on the display.

Earning excellent reviews, the Epic A17U is a top quality exercise bike that gives competitor brands something to think about. For this much money, we would like to see a 2-year parts warranty but that’s the only con we can see. This is a heavy 140-lb upright that feels like a health club quality model – which is another plus since many bikes at this price can weigh less than 90 pounds and tend to wobble under heavier users. This one is rock solid for users weighing up to 275 pounds. Available at Dick’s Sporting Goods stores for $699, the Epic A17U exercise bike rates a Good Buy.
