All in all, I really like this bike and the quality build show through....I use it almost daily. One comment.....where the seat and back meet there is an open space that jams into you lower backside that is not comfortable. I have a heavy towel rolled up and placed there to solve that problem. Other than that.....all good!
The head-unit on this device is VERY poorly designed. The buttons are not sensitive at all, and provide no feedback when you press them. If you're sweaty it is even worse. It often takes 50+ presses just to setup a basic 60 minute ride at level 15 intensity, and if you try to press and hold (for instance to go from 30 minutes to 60 minutes) you'll just zoom past the number you were trying to go to, because it goes way too fast. I have to think that they spent nearly 0 time actually using this bike. It's not cheap, and was intended to be the cornerstone of my home gym (I use other LifeFitness equipment at my local club, which I love). When I complained to support, they said that this WAS the nice head-unit. I feel like it shouldn't even be for sale, that is how bad it is. Completely takes away from the Life Fitness brand for me.
Overall, I love the bike - I especially like that I can vary my workout in any way I want. I can do interval one day, endurance the next, etc. The only thing I would do to improve the ride is to be able to adjust the back of the seat to better support the lumbar region of the back.

I am not a gym rat, nor am I casual or an avid excerciser. But I do an hour a day of some kind of healthy excercise, and we do yoga two days a week. We have had a LIFE FITNESS stationary bike for twelve years, we loved it AND there is NOTHING wrong with it, it's still like new. When on vacation recently I worked out at the gym at the resort we stayed at and I tried the LIFE FITNESS-RECUMBENT Bike and I loved it, the seat is so much more comfortable. So we bought one. It is so comfortable, easy to use, easy to adjust the seat, back, etc.. The settings are easy to figure out. All in all. My husband and I are very pleased with our purchase. And the customer service is outstanding!
Easy to use
The RS3 Lifecycle Exercise Bike is in a word "fantastic." I can push myself hard or take it down a notch and still get a great workout. The built-in heart monitor is a plus for good, accurate feedback. The recumbent design eliminates all low back stress. The cycle is surprisingly quiet. The seat is so easy to adjust that it's a piece of cake switching positions between my wife and myself, plus we both love the tilt options. The Go Console is clear, easy to read, and permits on the fly adjustments to my workout routine. The custom workout option is a big bonus and easy to program. I would recommend the RS3 to anyone who wants a fun activity to get in shape or to stay in shape.
We like the bike, except for the fact that the heart monitor doesn't work-either the hand ones or the chest strap. Technician has been here twice-no fix yet. It's been several weeks now. We are both excercizing for cardiac health, both having had cardiac issues and procedures. Need the monitor. Had some delivery problems as well at the time of delivery.
I wasn't wild about the process. Purchased on 7/10, billed on 7/18 and didn't get delivery and set up until August 25th. Having said that, we purchased a Lifecycle 22 years ago and it bit the dust a few months ago. After researching other exercise bikes, I decided on another Lifecycyle and found they've come a long way but still have the quality that you can't get from some of the less expensive brands. I love the variety of workouts, the performance and how QUIET this Lifecycle is. The seat is comfortable and can be adjusted in multiple ways. You won't be disappointed!!
