LIVESTRONG by Johnson LS 6.0R Recumbent Bike
Not a happy camper!
Bought the bike on Feb. 18. A worker assembled at my home. The resistance for the pedaling stays the same. Was able to talk to a rep who said that a wire attachment was not hooked up or motor was bad. It is now March 5 and am waiting for serviceman who is scheduled for next week, March 12! Not sure about the quality of the product. Not a happy camper!

I purchased the model LS6.0R and was able to assemble it easily in a couple of hours but the mesh seat back separated at the edge the second time I tried it. I have continued to use it carefully with the bad seat and I'm impressed with how smoothly the bike works. I had read reviews on line complaining about the seat but I hoped they had corrected the problem. When I followed up with Dick's concerning the problem I was informed that unless I had purchased the extended warranty I needed to contact Livestrong to get this resolved. I emailed them and they quickly agreed to ship a replacement. I'm waiting to receive the replacement now and I hope they have a cure for the poorly attached material.

had a chance to work this machine, seat backing sits a little forward but otherwise an awesome machine with many cool settings and a great workout!

Livestrong Recumbent Bike
This is sturdy bike, used by me 5'3" and husband who is 6'2". The bike was put together in about a hour or so. Very quiet and gives you many choices to choose from for your workout. We had a lot of help from our sales rep at Dicks and felt good about our purchase. We are 60 and have no trouble using the bike.
I am using it for arthritis in my knees and it doesn't hurt my knees at all. It took awhile to find the right place where I felt comfortable using it. It didn't hurt my husbands back either, as most other bikes do. I am happy with this purchase.

Was it worth the price??
I ride a recumbent bike every day since I had my hip replaced three years ago. In fact, I have worn out two of them. This time I wanted something I thought would last - even if it did cost more than the Schwinns I have had in the past combined. I bought the bike, brought it home and 1 hour later was ready to ride (easy assembly!) Three rides later, yeah three rides, the seat back was torn and separating from the molding. Also, I was not able to get the resistance to adjust to a level that gave me a real good work out. I called the company and was dealt with very professionally. I am scheduled for a home servicing next week and have replaced the seat back with no problems. Also, for those long legged rides, like myself, the seat does not adjust far enough back to let me fully extend my leg. If this seat tears again or the resistance issue is not resolved, this bike is going back!!

LIVESTRONG LS 6.0R - Seat FAIL
Not sure why the front handle bars are there. Strange distance and angle from seat. Same problem as previous reviewer with the back cloth of the seat pulling loose after only one week of use. On the up side it failed after only a week. Surely they will send an IMPROVED replacement... optimistic... NOW to the hassle of getting it done.

Love the seat, hate the seat
After reviewing online and personally sitting on a number of recumbent bikes this bike by far had the most comfortable seat. However, after only a few uses the seat back has started coming off!! The material that is stapled to the seat back started popping off little by little so that now it offers no support. On positive side, they are sending me a new one. And they admitted this was a common problem that they were trying to fix. I also put it together by myself in about an hour.

pricy but well worth it!
This is a heavy duty machine that will surely last for years. This seat is the most comfortable thing you've ever sat on. Highly recommend
