That's not a bad price for a clothes horse

Knowing me it will end up still in the box and used as a table

Buy water instead of a tonne of Pepsi Max, a lot more healthy and effective if you are going to be doing lots of cycling!

Can someone confirm if this is a nation-wide deal?

I will check both tesco Dumfries stores later tonight, not even going to bother with the Annan store, they never seem to have anything thats ever posted on here.

Or use water from the tap, cheaper still

100kg, thats what I'm trying to get down to, I'm a 6ft 2in man with a rugby build. No good for me.

Good price..............but you will have one sore bottom.

Do these make a lot of noise?

I bought what looks like the exact same model from Argos for £30 a few months ago, and if it's the same, this is a great deal.
It's ideal for the average person who just wants to get/stay fit. Obviously it's not for a die-hard gym visitor, and I wouldn't recommend it if you're on the larger side (as a 12st 6ft male, I probably wouldn't use it if I was much taller or heavier).
£12 - great buy.

Don't think you'll need the wiper blades :?

Wroing, water is for wimps, pepsi max is sugar free but still with the great taste of pepsi and provides loads of energy for exercise and a refreshing lift after exercise too

Pepsi Max is chemical dogshit - buying that, the wiperblades and the "spare room shin cracker" must have caused the checkout op to laugh their arse off

At least £12 isn't too much to waste on something you'll use as a towel rack in 1 months time

Any other exercise equipment? (I got one of these from the last ASDA deal on them!)

Good job I put the Strongbow back then

Doesn't look any cheaper made than the £100+ models IMO.

Don,t quote me on this but about 8 out of 10 houses on any random rd/street have a piece of exercise/gym equipment that is not being used as it should be Either as a clothes prop or in the garage.

Be honest own up if you,re one of them, lets see how many we get.

I didn't notice anything else on offer, except for golf gloves, but they don't count :-D

Bought one similar from Asda awhile ago - horrible cycling action on it, the adjustment thing doesnt have much variance and to be fair i am gonna throw it in the skip and buy a decent one - the difference between it and one i use in the gym wasn't even funny - i know these are not gym grade etc but the fact you can't even get a natural pedal motion going was just poor..

Waste of time imho. not voted either way because you might get more than £12 from a scrap merchant for it!

I had one of these and the pedal kept falling off lol

but in some ways is worse for your health than full fat coke as it contains even more artificial substances, some which have been linked to cancer (although there has been plenty of denials - he says in a cynical way that smacks of a cover up)

Unless you are doing work to increase your CV performance you don't need more resistance than getting your heart to 110-130bpm. Perfect fat burning zone and this would be fine.

wish i had one near here. need one of them as well

If you really think it provides 'loads of energy' you should read the calorie information on the can/bottle.

why dont people just get outside and go for a walk.much more interesting and costs nothing !!!

No, you have to do that yourself.

I got a treadmill because I'm petrified of dogs - and don't want them chasing me with knob head owners shouting "Don't worry, he won't hurt you".



I'm originally from Wrexham - anyone seen Big June recently? Heard poor old Hoppy was found dead in a river :O(

I dread to think the quality of this...

Doesn't seem to be nationwide, same bike in Coatbridge Tesco is Full price, checked at tills:x

If you are on about a dude who rides around a lot with a bizarre helmet and signs about fags etc on his bike - he is still alive and kicking - or was about 2 weeks ago I last saw him but thats more around Chester than Wrexham so probably not your dude..

Agreed but what I am saying is these are nearly un-rideable (is that a new word I just made?) - the motion of the pedals halts/grinds when the pedals are at 12 and 6 o clock position and just makes it a very poor ride - be better off just walking up and down your stairs to get your bpm to 110 than use this - albeit with the caveat that it was just like the one i got - honestly worst thing I bought this year so far I reckon... been on some cheapo ones in the past and they were ok but this one - never seen one as cruddy as it

Best thing to get IMO is a cheap stepper from Argos and spend 30-60 mins 1-2x a day on it in front of a console or film. Thats what I do as I cut and the result is my avi.

I wonder how many of these end up at the local tip once the novelty has worn off? :whistling:

For £12 who cares LOL
