I've tried many overpriced competitors, and found this to be an impressive bike. It also helps it was on sale:) The shifting between level is smooth, and even without the i-$$ plug in, it has programs that do exactly what we need to have a simple to a more advanced workout with no trouble.
bike was not working properly out of the box. you cannot adjust the tension. its been three months. Nordic tracks customer service is horrible! they barely care.
waiting for 3 yr warranty confirmation ..... never received this via mail
Used for exercising
Can't use, doesn't work, can't get fixed, parts not available for over a month and no idea when it will be in? If it ever arrives they want me to install a new motor? This is a joke and will certainly be my last NordicTrack purchase...
Almost didn't buy because of Negative set up reviews. I took my time step by step and when I had a a problem I went to youtube rather than forcing the issue and complaining it didn't work. Problem I had along with others was inserting the screws of the handle bar to the frame. Simple solution...you can't get the top screw in with handlebar in upright position so just insert the bottom screw only and push the handles forward (they will rotate) and you'll have plenty of room for top screw.
Regarding the display hookup... really take your time and be gentle with the 2 wire connections. If they don't connect very easy don't force it. Just turn connector around to other side and it should connect without a problem. Never force connection which is probably why someone's display wouldn't work.
It turned on immediately when I connected power (which connection is on lower front) which they don't tell you where it is in manual.
Main suggestion again is to take your good time and you should be as happy as I am with this machine. How long it will last I have no idea but for now I love it and all the features.
