Question Re: Assault bike

Yes I have and I actually ordered one. Should be here on Monday. It is an upgrade over the older AD4's from Schwinn.

I have owned 7 different AD's and the Assault Bike is great.

Re: Assault bike

I told my wife that I was going to get one, she googled it and said 1000 bucks? I am definitely getting it.

Re: Assault bike

As far as at home equipment it is one of the last things I would buy.

I have been at this for just over six years. For $1000 you could set yourself up with a good bar, bumpers, rack, and pull up bar.

I had all that stuff and an erg for several years before I even bought an air bike.

Depends what program you follow as well. Some make no use of it, some do.

i agree with all of this. it is a great machine and i love (or i should say hate) using it but there are many other pieces that you should buy before. we have them at our gym and it is a killer workout but i would only buy it for my house if i already had bars and plates, rower etc...

Re: Assault bike

I have a full gym in my house, I wanted to add this for some variety. I get burnt out using the treadmill.

Re: Assault bike

It's solid for warming up, but no better than a good row, IMHO.

It's also great for HIIT and Xfit, but as others have mentioned, sort of a luxury item, definitely not a necessity. I'd go so far as to say, I wouldn't even worry about an affiliate that didn't have one, much less a home box.

Re: Assault bike

I have an Airdyne AD4 at home, and use an Assault Bike at the gym. They are similar, but the *** Bike is without a doubt harder. I compare it to the different in damper feel on a C2. The *** Bike feels "heavier", more effort for same RPM, much more effort per calorie.
