What type of exercise bike do you own? Does it work correctly? Have you had any issues with it?

The reason I am asking is that I bought a new exercise bike that I picked up at K-Mart on January 29, 2012. Well this past week while using it ball bearing started falling out of it. Really only 3 weeks old and it was falling apart. Then K-Mart wanted to give me grief for trying to return it without a BOX!

My husband had to walk away from the customer service desk while I showed my *** LOL! He was like oh lord please don't piss her off!

I am in the market for a new one but I plan on doing some research.

I bought a recumbent bike from Stamina last fall for about $200 (shipped). Except for the display monitor not working all the time (they sent me a new wire but I don't want to have to take it apart to replace the wire), it works great. I had to do some assembly but it wasn't that difficult. It's super quiet and very smooth. I've been on it an average of 6 hours a week for 6 months now and it hasn't failed me yet. I highly recommend it!

I have a cheapo one from Walmart. It works just fine.

I would just return it for a new one. Doesn't have to be fancy.
