I cannot tell you have absolutely disgusted we are with Proform and their Tour de France stationary bike. If you are thinking about buying one, BEWARE. The thing does not work, their customer service is a joke, and after almost a year of them having $1500 of our money, WE HAVE YET TO TAKE A RIDE ON THE BIKE! I am seriously contemplating bringing fraud charges against them because their customer service is nonexistent, they never call back, and they sold us a piece of junk.

Lance Armstrong may be a liar, but he was right (about this)….”it’s not about the bike”….it’s about character. And this company has none. Never been more disappointed with the abject lack of concern once they got our money. Going to post this to the Wall Street Journal.

I am so grateful to have read this review, I was ready, money in hand, to buy this same model then I read this, never mind, I’ll just save my money and buy a treadmill; customer service is something I cherish, and do not do business with those who disregard it

Hi. I am in the UK. I travelled a long way today, to view the second generation model, (about 200 miles). It took two sales persons about twenty minutes to actually get the thing to switch on. That didn’t fill me with confidence. I think I’m going to wait for the third gen over here in the UK. Not sure when that will be though.
Regards

I have had the second generation bike since February 2012 and it is an amazing piece of technology that has done everything advertised. Maybe I got the only one that works, but I doubt that.
I have had 3 serious parts failures and the customer service has been worldclass. I get them on the phone, describe the issue and they send the parts to my home and contract a gym equipment service company to send a mobile rep to my house to install the new parts.
ifit can be a challenge because they don’t do a good job of explaining how it works, but once you get it, it too works 19 times out of 20…at least for me.
I’m on my TDF 4 to 6 times a week, every week and love the experience.
As for the warranty, you can purchase a 4 yr warranty for 180.00 I think. It’s a pretty good deal if you use your bike a lot. You have to get it within a year of getting the bike though.
This is a very good product!

Thanks for the honest reviews. I was apprehensive when I saw “Proform” on the side on the bike. I went to a store that sells the TDF bike and even the salesman was not confident to sell the bike. I cant believe the Toure d France people would put their name on this bike.
