    So I am sitting here pedaling on my new FitDesk 2 and thinking I really need to write a review.
    This is not my favorite thing to do but I feel I need to tell people about this product.
    So what I have found is that it really works great for both my fitness
    and my ability to get the extra things done, like sending a letter or email.
    This was a pleasant surprise and I look forward to using it more everyday as part of my daily routine.
    After having the FitDesk for a while I wonder how I lived without it.
    Here is my list that I think will help others know what to expect.

    Pros:
    Comfortable Saddle and back rest with easy “pull” height adjustment knob
    Desk Surface is extra gripping and slides back and forth to adjust to my height of 6’2″ and my wife at 5’6″
    Drawer under desk is nice touch
    Ultra quiet and smooth pedaling also resistance level can be set very high
    Arm exercise bands are great and easy to use
    Massager is nice feature and I do use it
    Feels stable when riding and no shaking screen
    Folds up easy and rolls on wheels to make putting away fast
    BEST OF ALL “I use it daily” unlike other exercise equipment I have tried

    Cons:
    Meter is simple, but keeps information so is easy to use
    Would like other color option
    Need 2 so I don’t have to ask my wife if I can use it now

    Great product, highly recommend because I am amazed at how much I use the product.

    Awesome Little Exercise Bike!, August 5, 2013

    I spent the last year, almost to the day, riding my FitDesk X original exercise bike. I loved it, but did notice that after I’d been pedaling for a little while and using my computer, my forearms would be kind of achy. I’d feel like I was sitting in a kind of weird position. I also had to rig a solution for storing the little computer that keeps track of distance, time, and an approximation of calories burned. The velcro didn’t last long for me. None of these little issuelets stopped me from keeping on pedaling, though.

    And then FitDesk came out with the FitDesk X 2.0, and all the little things I wished were improved about the original Xbike came true! The new desk is a giant upgrade over the fabric-covered foam original (although I thought that was pretty clever!) There’s a real nylon-web d-ring strap to hold on a laptop. On my original FitDesk, I “lost” the big rubber-band meant for holding on my laptop and raided one of my elastic belts. The new strap is better than that! The new desk is hard plastic with a kind of grippy surface, and a little stop on the edge closest to the rider. My laptop seems a lot more secure on this setup. Also, I don’t have to worry about accidentally knocking this desk off the handlebars like would sometimes happen with my FitDesk original. The rolling-massaging forearm rest really helps, too. I don’t feel like I have to sit so weird while I use it.

    The little time-distance-calories computer is a vast upgrade from the old one, as well, and this time around, it has a little tab that goes into a slot in the back, holding it nice and securely at the center of the back of the desk.

    Assembly was a snap. It took me a couple hours, because there are a lot of pieces, and I usually approach this kind of thing from an “instructions are for chumps” angle. Well, instructions save a lot of time, and the ones for putting together the FitDesk are really good. Everything you need for putting together the bike is right in the box, but I won’t lie. A ratchet-wrench and ratchet-screwdriver make the job even easier than the little tools included.

    The bike is really easy to use, and is really quiet. When I was just getting used to riding my original FitDesk, I was initially dismayed by the discomfort I got from the bike seat, but that’s truly temporary. You get used to it. I didn’t change out the original seat, and I notice the saddle on the 2.0 is an upgrade from the original. It’s really comfortable!

    I did install the back-rest this time around, and it does present a little bit of a challenge for me, getting on the bike. I’m 5’4″ and pretty uncoordinated sometimes. I’ve learned that I can flip the back rest down, swing my leg over, flip the backrest back up, and then get on the seat, and then to exit the bike, just hop off like I always did. The addition of the backrest makes for a more comfortable longer ride.

    When I first started riding the FitDesk, it was a little distracting. It felt like I could either be watching TV OR pedaling, either writing with my computer, OR pedaling. After a couple weeks, or maybe even a few days, actually, pedaling while Tv-ing or computering or even reading became more second-nature. Now, I almost feel like I’m slacking off if I’m just sitting down, doing any of those things.

    The whole works folds up easily to get it out of sight if we have company over, but I generally leave my FitDesk out so people ask what the heck it is, and then I can tell them. Just attacking them with “Hey! I have this thing called a FitDesk and you should check it out!” seems more evangelical than I like to be, even for a product as great as the FitDesk 2.0.

    The thing that has really sold me on all things FitDesk is the company’s customer service. They go above and beyond to make sure their customers are happy and that they’re using the right FitDesk product. When I’ve needed replacement feet for the bottom of my FitDesk, thanks to my toddler daughter who likes to take things that are important to me and hide them/throw them away, they had a really good sense of humor about the whole thing and sent me my replacement FitDesk feet swiftly. They’re really friendly and responsive. FitDesk’s Customer Service is why I’ll be a FitDesk customer for life. I can’t wait to see what’s next from this company!

    Very satisfied, July 25, 2013

    This review is from: FitDesk FDX 2.0 Desk Exercise Bike with Massage Bar, White (Sports)
    I purchased my fitdesk 2.0 on their website 2 weeks ago but am writing my review on Amazon for greater exposure. Due to my profession, I often have a inconsistent schedule, and the customer service department was very helpful in making sure that the desk would arrive on a day that I knew I’d be able to be home. Assembly was pretty standard for DIY construction. The overall machine is pretty much what you’d expect, an exercise bike with a desk attached. I can’t really say much more, other than its surprising how quickly the mile equivalents rack up while you’re on a computer for a few hours at a time (as I often am, hence my need to get back in shape with this bike!). Unfortunately, the meter that originally came with the bike had a faulty display, with one of the digits not appearing properly, but customer service quickly sent me a replacement that works perfectly. Doesn’t hurt that the one battery-operated part of the bike comes with batteries, as well. I did initially have a click sound similar to what others reported on my first day of use, but it hasn’t come back, so I’m not worried.

    PROS:
    – Great Customer Service.
    – All around good bike
    – The desk surface is relatively ‘grippy,’ helping to keep whatever is on it in place fairly well.

    CONS:
    – Display is located behind where most users will have their laptop, thus requiring the user to close the laptop in order to see the display.
    – The holes lining the perimeter of the display look as though they’d be ideal for putting a power cord through, but are too narrow for even a sleek Macbook charger.
    – The lip preventing a laptop from slipping off the desk is a little too low. In particular, it just barely is higher than the beveling of the bottom of a Macbook Pro, making it relatively easy for the computer to ride up onto the lip.
    – The ‘grippy’ nature of the desk inhibits the use of a mouse in conjunction with a laptop (gamers beware) and the space of the desk itself might not be enough room for the use of a mouse, depending on the size of the computer itself.
    – The seat and back only adjust vertically and not separately.
    – Instructions go into too much detail. Items are numbered based on the entire construction of the bike, rather than just the components into which it is broken down for shipment for you to assemble. For example, the basic frame (one piece) is not numbered as simply piece 1 in the instructions. Rather, it and its component parts (such as the internal gearing) are numbered as parts 1-69 (of 98 total) in the instructions, even though you will never deal with the majority of parts 2-69 in the assembly, and it is only broken down into 17 parts for assembly. Due to this, you’ll be assembling, in step 3, parts # 65, 52, 3, 40, and 31; this is somewhat contrary to how most of us are used to DIY instructions being presented.

    I know it looks like my ‘cons’ outnumber my ‘pros,’ but I definitely recommend this product. I just have an eye for problems. Should anyone from Fitdesk read this (and I’m sure they do), would recommend the following:
    – Enable the meter to integrate with a laptop or smartphone. If a laptop display is going to block the user’s view of the meter, why not just display the information on the laptop itself?
    – Make the lower lip of the desk higher.
    – Allow for greater degrees of movements on the seat, mainly forward and backward, as well as making the seat back able to adjust up and down independent of the seat.
    – Streamline the information in the instructions. Rather than numbering components based on the actual total number within the machine, number them based on the number in which it is broken down in shipping (and in which the customer will assemble them).

    Again, I don’t want my laundry list of negatives to sound like a condemnation; I’d give the product a 4.5 instead of a 4 if I could. However, I can see room for improvement, so 4 it is. Hope you all enjoy it, its definitely worth the money!
