I have this FitDesk. I'm 6'2"ish and above their max weight and it has no issues with me on it. The only issue is making myself get on it regularly... The seat isn't the most comfortable, but Amazon sells their adapter that lets you use any bicycle style seat for cheap

The desk one should come with a generator that powers your computer when you pedal it. That would make sure you keep pedaling and exercising. There could be some online games where you'd win by pedalling harder to make your computer run faster. Heh.

Instead of buying this and donating it around May... $204 will buy a needy person about 2 1/2 months of Happy Meals.

900+ woots! - Talk to the Square or don't🤔

The "Gearbox" which is really just a band box gets very noisy then loses resistance in a year. I'm on my third one now just going into my third year. Their customer service always pushes back trying to put blame on the user. They also charge you for shipping and the cheap stamped tools for warranty replacement parts ($55 to ship in warranty gearbox). Look at Amazon reviews with all the same issues.

I don't hate the thing because it is nice when it works but I do now think of it as a disposable bike. I gave it a 3 star review on Amazon.

While I don't have either of these models, I have an older iteration of the under-desk version.

It's simple enough to use but there are many more negatives for me with it than positives.

Pros: Gets your legs moving.

Cons:
- Only really usable on the lower couple gears. The higher resistance is really high for sitting at a desk.
- I'm 6'1" and my desk only has 28" of space under it. I have to really recline back to be able to use the fitdesk without hitting my knees.
- If you have a chair with wheels it's nearly impossible to use the fitdesk and stay in one place. The resistance of the peddler will constantly push you backwards in your chair and you will have to continually readjust and pull yourself forward.
- It's pretty bulky, to be honest. The base is nearly 3' long.
- I don't use it enough to really see a benefit. I get more benefit from just getting up and walking around for a couple minutes.

If a new year's resolution has you wondering if this is a good purchase, my recommendation is to use the money instead towards a gym membership and take advantage of the legitimate workout machines.

Well, it's not as easy as buy it in the store and bring it home, but there are definitely projects out there that do things like that

To the Woot writers:

As a writer for a cycling company myself, I can assure you the following sentence is false:
"Nobody ever doped to ride an exercise bike."

In fact, there's a whole lingo associated with it: e-doping. Here's a link - http://www.crankpunk.com/blogs/crank-vid/item/979-e-doping-on-zwift.html
