I just bought a 600 ma AC adapter, found it by the batteries and cable stuff, it was $12.98. I followed the advise of one of the reviews and it works great.

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!

You can call the Company directly that's listed in the manual. I think they charge around $80 or go to walmart and buy a multi-tip ac adapter that is 6 volts, atleast 800mA, and a center pole postive tip. Wal*Mart sells a nice multi-tip adapter for around $18

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.

The seat adjusts forward and backward only since it is a recumbent bike you adjust for height by moving the seat forward to be closer to the pedals or back if you are taller.

No, there is no height adjustment, only the distance from the seat to the pedals can be adjusted. And I've had problems getting this adjustment to work.

You need a 6 volt adapter with atleast 800mA and a center post postive plug. I know Wal*Mart sells a great adjustable tip AC Adapter for around $18 which is cheaper than the $80 for the AC Adpter you can buy from the Company. I have attached a picture of the polarity if you find a spare one around the house.

Only hear sound out of one side of console. Anyone else have this prob?

Was told by manufacturer that other "speaker" is only for visual effect. Product actually only has one speaker on right side of console???

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.

6V 600 mA vs 6V 1300 mA AC adapter

A couple of people on here have talked about using a 6Volt 600 mAmp AC adapter, and they say it works fine. I have a 6Volt 1300mAmp AC adapter. Will it work just as well, work better, or will it burn out the electronics?

It is recommended to use at least 800mA. I'm sure 600mA will work, but I would not use the fan or the MP3 music speaker while running only 600mA.

mA is the rate of discharge over an hour for any given battery, and is not as important as the Volts rating.
