Most of the recent exercise bike reviews stress the programs and entertainment systems, but they should mention that this affordable recumbent has a good belt drive system that should last for thousands of maintenance-free hours.
Other comments on the Livestrong LS7.0B include praise for the easy-operating lever to move the seat and lock into place for different size users, the silent operation, smooth pedaling motion, and very sturdy frame. The bike is simple to assemble in about 30 minutes.
New for 2011, the Livestrong LS7.0B hasn’t been on the market long so we can’t remark as to its durability, but based on user comments, it is a well built recumbent that easily earns its Lance Armstrong endorsement. It is a value-priced model that can rival many higher-priced units.
In addition, a portion of every sale of the Livestrong LS7.0B recumbent bike goes to the Livestrong Foundation to support cancer patients. For outstanding quality and features, this $699 recumbent rates a Good Buy.
