Like the majority of Exerpeutic bikes, this model has a heavy flywheel to ensure that your entire body is drawn into the workout. Thanks to its V-belt drive system, the bike also ensures a fairly quiet operation. While there is the occasional mechanical sound- especially during intense workouts- it’s quiet enough to allow users to watch TV or listen to music during their exercise sessions.

Ease of Use
Because of its simplistic design and straightforward features, the Exerpeutic 1000 remains rather easy to use. For instance, the LCD display presents users with a wide font, allowing you to view your data from a distance. Thanks to the “Step-Thru” design, users don’t need to climb up and mount the saddle as is often the case with upright bikes. The Torque cranking system ensures that you benefit from a consistent and smooth pedaling motion, regardless of your level of resistance. Since it is powered by magnetic resistance, you only have to get up on the bike and pedal, without any hassle.
Assembly and parts
A few users did have issues putting this bike together because they found this step to be quite time-consuming. However, this wasn’t really an issue for veteran users. Most customers required between one to two hours to assemble the machine. An instructions manual as well as all the require parts are included in the boxed packaging. Some users found that it was easier to assemble the machine if they had an extra set of hands to help.
Although it has received mostly positive comments, this model does not have a lot of drawback to its name. A few minor issues have been raised by customers, such as the lack of a water bottle holder, built-in fan and speakers. The assembly process was also something of a hassle for some users who claimed that the included tools weren’t efficient enough. One user found that his LCD screen remained unresponsive while another person complained about the pedals and found that they were not comfortable enough. While the bike does have a dial knob to shuffle through the resistance, a few customers thought that it would be better to have digital buttons to navigate through the different features.
While it may not feature professional-quality features, like the more expensive bikes Bladez R300 and Sole Fitness R92, this particular model presents basic options that are aligned with its budget-friendly price. If you’re an experienced athlete, you might be bothered by such shortcomings but it can safely be operated by a beginner who simply wants to benefit from a quick workout every day. With a good cycling motion and a resistance steel tubing exterior, the Exerpeutic 1000 is covered by a 1 year warranty on the frame and 90 days warrant on the parts.
