Activating the bike. After getting the bike it was said that I had to go through iFit to activate the console on the bike. This is not true. All you have to do is hold the Ifit button down for 30 seconds and it will activate the console without having to give any credit card address and name anything at all.
These bikes are great for riding and very comfortable. The people at this gym is amazing, pleasure to be around, very helpful. Have all kinds of nice exciting equipment for your use and always there to show you how to use anything they have.

Not a bad bike for the money but maybe I should have bought a Peloton with more features. Pricewise it seems on the high side for the materials and features and I am not sure what the brand name, Gold's, adds to the value. I just bought it because it was convenient to do so.
Gold's Gym exercise bikes are very good for performing a great deal of exercise. It's a comfortable bicycle that helps you cycle for a pretty long time without feeling the pain in the back side or better yet, the gluteus maximus. It counts the distance you cycle so you can know exactly how much you did at a given time. You can also adjust the seat and the velocity with which you cycle. I recommend this bike highly for your workouts.
I really like this style; however, looking at all things now that I've had it for a year or so, I really don't think I would buy again. For the price ($$$$) I really would have thought the electronics would have been much better. At first, I think I was in awe with this overly large, room hogging display piece. Telling all who would listen about my new toy. Although I still use it (more now with the covid stay at home stuff), in general and pre covid, it started turning into more of a catch all paperweight than a proper bike. I find that I get much more enjoyment at the gym than trying to do this on my own. For the price, I probably could've paid for a life membership at a good gym.
My mother bought this as a Christmas present for my father. I put it together. Nowhere in the manual or on the box did it say you had to have a memberdhip to IFit. This is so unethical way to do business. You should know this beforehand. I would not recommend this product or any product from Gold's Gym from now on.
I wish I did not have to use any stars! I can't believe after spending 200$ on this bike I am being FORCED to get a membership just to unlock the use of the bike I bought! I put in activation code and it says not valid!! WHAAAAAAT!!??? Do not waste your money, just get an old faithful bike!
I have just finished putting my bike together and was very anxious to get started only to discover that I cannot even use it without subscribing to iFit. I was not aware that a membership was REQUIRED in order to "unlock" the console for use. Fortunately, the first month is a free trial and allegedly can be cancelled at any time. (I just read a previous review that said they were having issues cancelling as iFit was unresponsive to e-mails and phone calls.) Had I known all of this, I would not have purchased this machine. Lesson learned - read reviews beforehand!!!
Forced to give credit card number BEFORE my machine would even TURN ON! With no clue what the monthly fees would be... I had no idea the machine came with an extortion feature. In order to use a piece of machinery that I had already paid for, I had to authorize them to charge me more! Bluetooth feature only works with membership to iFit. Rendering the built in speaker useless without it, unless you buy a cable. (extra) Also doesn't come with an electrical plug (extra), you need 4-D batteries. Unable to cancel membership with iFit, as they are completely nonresponsive, to e-mails and phone calls. Very disappointed. I knew I wasn't buying the most expensive bike on the market, but I didn't expect to have to pay to turn it on, and continue to pay to use most of its best features.
My Gold's Gym bike is very easy to use. We chose one that after assembly it did not nor need to be taken down or folded. I have found those kind to be more flimsy. We wanted something sturdy that we would get a lot of life and longevity out of. It has items that I was looking for already included so I didn't have to hassle with adding them later like a cup holder, hand grips that tell your heart rate and a built in fan. I am very happy with the brand and believe that the features are perfect for my workout needs. Everything that I have ever wanted was thought of and added to this piece of equipment. The exercise bike is the item I use most frequently so it has to be just what I need and expect. Those needs and expectations have been met and exceeded. Very happy with our experience and ownership of this bike. I would change nothing at all about this piece of equipment.
