LifeCore Bike - Forget About Repairs

by Dave Sutherland
(Boulder, Colorado)

We bought a LifeCore Fitness bike about 5 years ago, and have used it moderately but consistently. Then the tension cable broke.

The LifeCore certified repairman - who happily took our money to diagnose the bike's trouble - told us this part is unavailable and is back ordered. The customer rep at LifeCore told us they don't keep the parts in stock but have ordered them FROM CHINA and they don't know when they will come in.

THAT WAS OVER SEVEN MONTHS AGO. No replacement part, and we are unable to use the bike.

Clearly, LifeCore either (1) doesn't care about or expect to repair bikes or (2) thinks we'll just buy a new bike because the repair is too difficult.

We may buy a new bike alright, but it will never be another LifeCore.
