Seems to good to be true. Anyone at all either heard of this brand or own one?

Does this require a fan for it to feel realistic?

Can't speak to this bike itself but it actually looks pretty good on paper. Having a built-in screen is nice and the belt drive is superior to chain. Probably a felt bad (inferior to magnetic) for resistance but not a deal breaker.

Main issue for me is the 18 lb flywheel is super light, I'd personally find it annoying.

Sunny bikes still seem the best IMHO but run $200-300 for something decent without a screen. $10 cadence sensor can fix that.

not a bad price if you keep in mind the 18 pound flywheel.

Pardon my ignorance, but why is an 18 pound flywheel an issue?

Really need an exercise bike (hurt knees) and this bike fits my price point range.

However, a few minutes before seeing this deal i checked Amazon's best sellers and found this bike at roughly the same price. This bike has approx 10,000 reviews averaging 4.5 rating. Little different bike physical configuration (recumbent). Fairly ignorant in the difference this will make given that I will probably peddle the same speed regardless of bike configuration. I am looking at using the bike about 3 times a week, 30 minutes a day.

Marcy Recumbent Exercise Bike with Resistance ME-709 - $155

https://www.amazon.com/Marcy-Recumbent-Exercise-Resistance-ME-709/dp/B002KV1MJU/ref=sxin_9_ac_d_rm?a... [amazon.com]

Camel X 3 says the price varies by $15 but I would guess it may be going up given colder weather and possible increase demand. Getting timely delivery and quality bike is more important to me than $15.

Appreciate any comments on quality difference between Marcy & Costway, or knowledge of the Marcy Recumbent Bike.

After briefly comparing ratings, my initial reaction is that the Marcy may be better quality, but I could be wrong?

Thanks in advance!

In terms of performance, they're 2 completely different products. A spin bike is not really comparable to an incumbent or upright exercise bike. Spin bikes have a weighted flywheel. This spinning weight creates momentum which simulates the feel of riding an actual bike (pedals turn a crank, which turns a belt/chain, which turns a weighted wheel). Incumbent/upright bikes have no real momentum. If you stop pedaling, the bike will stop not much after. The pedals are usually tied directly to resistance on the crank but not geared to a separate flywheel. This is a completely different feel. If you want to just ride resistance for exercise, it is fine...but for actual spinning like Peloton (cadence/HR based exercise) and more of an actual bike feel, you'll want a spin bike with a flywheel. Hope that helps.

If you want realism, get a bike and then get a trainer. If you want even more realism, get a smart trainer.

Lol, trainers are devices you put your road bicycle on. It fixes them in place and provides resistance so you can pedal in place. Smart trainers are the same but with bluetooth connections to send stats to your tablet/phone.
