Aldi Exercise Bike

Aldi Exercise Bike


Hey there, it’s me Katie Beth again, and
this week at Aldi I found this exercise bike. It’s, uh, it was $89, and it looks
like you can fold it up pretty small, which is great, because I don’t have a ton of
space. But I’ve been having a lot of problems with my feet, but I still need
to workout, so I was hoping this would help out with that, because some of the
weight would be–most of the weight would be on my butt and not on my feet. So
let’s open this up and see what it looks like. Okay, before I rip it open I’m just
gonna give you a quick overview of the bike or the box . This is what it looks
like, oh, and these are the stat type of things on the other side, on what it can
possibly do. Okay now opening it up, the directions
were right there on the front of the box. I pulled them all out.
There’s the feet pedal, the butt thing, the steering wheel, and pedals. And what
was really great about this one is that it came with all the tools you need!
That’s a really awesome thing! So here’s the main part of the bike, and then of course
taking off the wrapper, I don’t know how they knew I like to high-five things! So,
first I put on the pedals. Not the pedals–the foot things–basically the
foot to steady it. And also if you don’t like doing picture by picture directions,
there’s just a general direction of where everything goes. So the next thing
I did was try to put the pedals on and it was super easy. You just like spin
them in. I actually have to put down the camera, because it’s not working that
well one handed…It was super easy to spin it in, but then you do have to tighten it with the
wrench that it includes in there–which is great–
and then there’s the feet straps you just put on. I put it on the biggest
settings they have because I have giganto feet. And then next you put the seat on, and as you can
see, it just has the holes already for you to screw them in. You just screw them
in there, and again it was awesome, because it came with the exact
screwdriver/wrench thing you need to use! Just screw those in. So next I put on the
handlebar, and the handlebar you have to connect the two wires–which was sticking
out with a rubberband which made it really easy. You just connect it and then
stick it back in there, and then you also– the leftover screws which are here are
what I use to actually steadying the handlebars in there. I
guess you just screw them in. And it also came with its own batteries. It didn’t
even need batteries! So when I was done with all of this, this is the bike. It’s
in the standing up position still, and to make it go into the normal position you
pull out the pin. This is what the pin looks like in the standing up position,
and then you pull it out and it only stretches as far as it’s meant to go. It
doesn’t let you go any further. Then you stick the pin in to stabilize it and
then you have it in the regular bike riding way of riding. I don’t know how
to say that the bike is the way it goes to ride. And then I realized this is the
part I forgot to do–it’s putting the stabilizer in for the seat, because the
seat can rise or go shorter. I’m putting it on the shortest setting there is it’s
just those little holes. Then you screw this in to keep it in the riding height. Now I’m gonna try it: So just pedaling along…Sorry the camera’s
really shaky. Look I can watch my tablet well I’m riding! So that’s pretty cool!
Let’s see what settings we have here… You can look at time, I guess. See this is
gonna get really shaky with the riding, but basically you can see I can do the
distance, I got the time it takes me to do it, how many calories I’m burning doing
it, and then it also has a heart-rate- monitor thing on the handlebars. Okay, I
wanted to show you how easy it is to take it from the normal riding position
to the standing position. Sorry this video is gonna get a little shaky. I should
have used a gimbal for this, but I was too excited to get this bike going. So
this is what it looks like in the standing position. It’s not a huge
footprint. It doesn’t take up a lot of room, and then you can just drag it along
if you want. It kind of has wheels on it, but I’m not sure how well they’ll work.
But it’s so light that it’s really easy to drag, especially if you’re on carpet
like I am. And then I’m trying to open it back up again. Here and I keep hitting
the couch because, uh, um, I just kept hitting the couch with it. It’s not that
heavy, so it wasn’t hitting it that hard. Then you just stick the pin back in it
to make it riding length. So overall I kind of really like this bike, and I’m
excited that I got it! Um, once again, Aldi had some really exciting products!
Thank You Aldi! I’m going to maybe change into workout clothes, so I’m not just
like sweating in my Sunday church clothes. Oh, this is what I wore to church
today. Um, well thanks for watching everyone!
um I don’t know if anyone is actually in the market for one of these bikes, but
it was under a hundred dollars, and I seem to really be liking it. And I think
it’s gonna help me out a lot, and because of my feet problem, um, it actually feels
pretty great! It’s not putting any pressure at all on my feet, and the butt
part is really big, and big enough to fit my butt on here really comfortably. And
it’s not like the exercise bike set up at workout places or mountain bikes that have the skinny little bike seats that hurts your butt. This one actually feels
really comfortable! At least it does for now. We’ll see how it does like miles and
miles later…But thanks for watching everyone, and have a great day!
