I am not a health nut, but just using the bike everyday will do nothing but good for you. I suppose that if you use the highest pressure setting and "ride into the wind" you would lose some weight, but I don't think that it would be what you looking for. Of course, over a period of time and faithfulness you will get there, just as long as you keep the Twinkies away from the bike.

answer 5
depends on how you use it! Higher resistance will help tone your muscles. I definitely feel a burn in my thighs after I work out on resistance level 4 and it goes to 8. Then it also depends on how you sit in the seat. I move forward slightly recline and can feel it working my glutes. If you are already a fitness nut with well defined muscles, it may not provide enough resistance, but it works fine for me.

Yes, it can help. The resistance is pretty strong at its highest level, but it's still manageable. The biggest key to losing 30lbs. will be your eating style. Exercise just helps some.

The bike has 8 grades of magnetic resistance. Riding at a higher level will tone your legs. I ride about an hour, switching between grade 3 and 6-- my legs are sore and wobbly when done (like I got a great workout). The bike is also perfectly silent. I recommend it for a silent workout in front of the tv.

There is a manual adjustment that lets you dial in the level of resistance you want. It ranges from practically nothing to a fairly stiff resistance. I didn't crank it all the way up but about half way, where I am now, you start to feel noticeable resistance. My goal is to get a work out without killing myself and so far this machine let's me do that.

You have 8 preset settings for resistance on your bike. I would turn the knob to 1 and try it out. I started at 3, as that is what it was when I picked it up. My wife and I have no problems at the 3 setting, and if you do, then go to 2 or 1, which give less resistance. It is very smooth and comfortable. We just got ours and love it!

the amount of calories you burn depends on the tension and speed, the harder you work the more calories you burn.

i typically burn 1,000 calories in an hour, speed 24 miles per hour, tension set at 6 or 7.

Well all those fancy calorie counters are just guesses anyway. Your weight, age, health, etc all go into considering your calorie burn rate, so take any of these figures with a grain of salt. What you need to consider is your heart rate and length of your work out. My guide is if I'm sweating I'm burning.

The seat back is not adjustable and I find i too far back for me. in order to adjust the seat you have to pull the back half of the bike out of the frame rail, its slide back and forth, very unusual!

I am still working out how to adjust it. It needs to be back alittle further for me and upmore for my husband. It is alittle hard to move but we assume it just needs to loosen up.

The back seat isn't adjustable, but you can adjust the machine itself to accomodate your height. This is kinda difficult b/c sliding the two main pieces apart is not that easy.

Adjusting the seat to move forward was a little irritating, being that I had to twist and turn the entire seat area to get it to move. It's nothing like pulling a lever and having a quick adjustment. And even moved all they way forward, I could not reach the pedals.(I am 5').

No. The tension is by cable, like on a 10-speed. The computer is by batteries.
