You will need a 6 volt adapter that has atleast 800mA and a center pole positive plug. Wal*Mart sells a nice multi-tip adapter for around $18 or call the Company direct and spend around $80. I'll let you pick.

If you're talking about the ac adapter, you can't use a universal because the company won't tell you which polarity to use. You have to order theirs because all warranties are voided if you use any other adapter than the one they provide for twenty seven extra dollars.

It runs on four D batteries, or you can use an AC adapter (not included). The bike comes with information about how to get one from the manufacturer, or you can get a 6 volt, positive tip adapter from an electronics store for a lower price.

In fact, Wal-Mart has a Jensen universal AC adapter (available online) that will work just fine!

I am 6'4" as well. Yes you will fit, just barely, at its most extended position you will fit on it just right with a little bit of bend in your knees.

However, I must warn you that the "Magnetic Resistance" even maxed out to a 10 will only provide a casual cardio workout. If you are use to intense cardio then this machine will leave you wanting.

You will sweat but not build strength.

You are correct.It only has one speaker. The left side is an empty and is for visual effect. Background: I called the Company when I first got the bike and told them only 1 speaker was working. They sent me a new console free. About a week later I got the new console and installed it. Same problem. I took the old console apart by removing the back screws and it olny has 1 speaker. You could connect 2 if you wnated to with a little work, but I don't think it's worth it. The sound is real "tinny" either way.

Yes it will. You need atleast 800mA. Ensure the adapter is set to center post postive. I have attached a picture of what the back of the adapter should look like or if you have an adjustable tip you may need to flip it to positive..

Question

Has anyone had problems with a Walmart AC adapter burning out the console?

My console did not function when I bought the bike, so I contacted the company and they said that if you use an AC adapter that has not been purchased from them, that the console may burn out. Has anyone using a different brand AC adapter had this problem? I hate to spend $35 on an AC adapter, when I have one sitting right here!

Our console burned out even without using the plug in adapter. From other reviews we've read online it is a common problem with this particular unit. Replacement consoles are more expensive than the bike itself.
