Weslo Pursuit R 4.8 Recumbent Bike

I have had this bike for many years, and everything works precisely as advertised. One time, the battery ran down, and I replaced it. No parts EVER failed, and it's been MANY years - I don't even remember how many, but definitely longer than a decade!

The bad review here is unwarranted and unfair. I have attached an iPad to it to run interactive apps like Bit Gym, and I attached it with the Spider Monkey Tablet Tail: it fits!

It has a fan, that works great every time. It has built-in workouts that I no longer need because of the apps, but they work. It has resistance that is fairly unlimited, and I use that every workout. I have logged many, many, many miles of riding on this bike! (You can check my records at Map My Ride if you don't believe it.)

It takes your heart rate, even with the Tablet Tail attached, so I can enter the data into Map My Ride. I love this bike and won't get another until it breaks down. Since I've had it a decade or more, I kind of doubt that will happen, but it could. So far, so great!

Unless you want a bike with super computerized features, this works great! And it has longevity!
