The Body Solid Endurance B2U upright exercise bike has an extremely quiet ride and a lifetime warranty on parts. If they would just re-design the console, it would be a decent buy.
The single window console readings give feedback for time, speed, distance, pulse, and calories.
The Endurance B2U upright features:
The Endurance B2U upright exercise bike has a heavy 24-lb flywheel, a Poly-V belt drive, and 15 levels of resistance. It also features Dura-Firm seat padding, handgrips for heart rate monitoring, front transport wheels, and a water bottle holder.
There’s no plug-in required on this bike as the display operates on two AA batteries. The console turns off automatically after a few minutes of inactivity.
Several customer reviews have mentioned that this model comes with incomplete assembly instructions written in poor English posted next to illustrations that are too small to decipher. (If you have this problem with any Body Solid product produced in China, go to the official website and download the real user manual that is actually very well written and illustrated.)
Other than that, we also agree with some users who say they were under whelmed by the cheap-looking, simplistic, one-window console. It scans readouts, but for this kind of money, you would think they would design something a lot more appealing and informative.
The lifetime warranty on the Endurance B2U upright exercise bike is great, but otherwise there is nothing all that exciting about the B2U. Since a 24-lb flywheel is overkill on an upright, you can get a comparable bike from another brand for about the same money ($599) or less.
If you feel a Schwinn or Nautilus bike at around $399 doesn’t have the quality and features you want, we suggest you step up in price to a Lifespan C3 which is a Best Buy for a traditional upright in the $600 to $900 range.
