Ease of Use and Comfort

 

The Sunny bicycle comes with a padded seat base and seat back that offer stability and comfort and make this a model for those suffering from lower back pain, as well as people in rehabilitation process and pregnant women. The foot pedals come complete with adjustable foot straps which are made of a non-skid material and allow the users feet to stay firmly in place as they pedal. Also, the adjustable seat allows users of all heights to fit comfortably into the seat with an easy to adjust lever.

This particular model thanks to being very basic is also extremely easy to use. In fact, you only have to get on it and start pedaling and the monitor will automatically show your data. Customizing your workout is also effortless as you just need to turn a knob to change the resistance level.

Features and Specifications

  • Product Dimensions: 46 x 19 x 32”Folding recumbent bike
  • Product Weight: 40lbs
  • Resistance Type: Magnetic
  • Resistance Levels: 8
  • Maximum Capacity: 220lbs

We weren’t expecting to find any fancy feature on this affordable bike, but even though we were pleasantly surprised by the few ones it does present. For instance, the Sunny bicycle comes with 8 levels of magnetic resistance, which are enough to give some variety to the workout and can be easily adjusted through a handy knob.

It comes with a pair of handles next to the seat to make getting on and off the bike easier and safer. Also the seat height can be adjusted to accommodate different users. The clear monitor allows the user to keep track of his/her performance by displaying fitness data such as time, distance, speed and calories burned.

Due to its magnetic resistance this model is extremely quiet, and this makes it a good choice for people that prefer to listen to some music or watch TV while working out. In fact, we consider its silent feature to be one of the key features this bike has to offer, since being able to multi-task can make time pass faster, and keep the user motivated to exercise constantly.

The best thing about this model, and what gives it its name, is its folding feature. Indeed, thanks to this feature users will be able to store the bike in a closet or under the bed after use, and to make things even better, this model also includes transport wheels, so you won’t even have to carry it.

The bike comes with a 220 pounds of maximum capacity, which can be limiting for some users, although its the same that is offered by its non-folding counterpart Sunny Magnetic.

Assembly and parts

The Sunny bicycle is delivered semi-assembled and requires just a few pieces to be assembled at home with a simple screwdriver or with the supplied tools. This bike does come with a basic instruction manual, which is easy to read and follow. Even though it is a quite cheap model, once assembled it looks and feels solid, and this is why most users have commented to be surprised about its sturdiness.

Drawbacks

Although generally this model is very well liked, every product comes with its share of drawbacks and this is not the exception. As a result, some users have commented that the seat is not comfortable enough, especially during long rides. However, they didn’t regret buying this model just because of this; but on the contrary, they opted to remedy this problem by adding a pillow during their exercise.
Also, while this model does come with eight resistance levels, these might not prove challenging enough for the experienced user, in which case we’d recommend checking out some of the more advanced models such as the Nautilus R514c or Horizon Fitness RC-30.
