About Sit N Cycle

Sit N Cycle is an “As Seen on TV” fitness product that claims to provide you with an effortless, low impact method of staying in motion, while also helping you to achieve optimum fitness. The device is primarily targeted toward busy Baby Boomers and active seniors, and its new and improved design is claimed to be easier on your knees.

Sit N Cycle is endorsed by Olympic Gold Medal winner Dorothy Hamill, and is manufactured by Smooth Fitness & Health. Unfortunately, the company is not listed with the Better Business Bureau. However, we’ve accumulated a variety of customer reviews here at HighYa over the past several months, and we’ve noticed that the most common customer complaints reference poor quality—more specifically, a pedal design that fails frequently. Is this still the case with the new and improved version? Let’s find out.

How Sit N Cycle Works

By utilizing a hands-free design and 8 resistance options, the Sit N Cycle is an aerobic fitness machine that engages your core and allows you to burn calories with minimal effort. In fact, the company claims you can even use it while watching TV or reading a book.

Like the original version, the new and improved Sit N Cycle allows you to increase energy, reduce stress, and improve your health. However, you’ll now be able to change resistance levels with the turn of a dial, enjoy a larger cushioned seat with a locking mechanism, experience an advanced pedaling system for smoother operation, in addition to large no-slip pedals, and six new colors.

Sit N Cycle Pricing & Refund Policy

If purchased directly through the manufacturer, the Sit N Cycle is available under a 30-day risk free trial, just pay $19.95 to begin. Once your trial has ended, however, you’ll be billed six consecutive payments of $39.99, for a total of $259.89.

If you’re dissatisfied, you’ll need to contact customer service at (855) 663-5643 to obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number, and then send it back in its original packaging. Keep in mind that you’ll be responsible for return S&H charges.

Bottom Line: Is Sit N Cycle a Scam?

While we have no reason to believe that Sit N Cycle is a scam, there are some concerns you should keep in mind prior to placing your order.

Most importantly, the Sit N Cycle is an “As Seen on TV” product, which typically carry lower customer satisfaction ratings than their mainstream counterparts. In fact, the majority of Sit N Cycle reviews we’ve accumulated at HighYa reference poor quality—more specifically, a pedal design that fails frequently. While the “new and improved” version that’s being heavily promoted on QVC is claimed to address many of these issues, we’ve received several reviews over the past month that continue to cite this same problem.

Also, keep in mind that the Sit N Cycle weighs a whopping 34 pounds, which, given the product’s target demographic, might make it much less portable than the website makes it appear.

    Do not attempt to order from this company Beware, I never completed the order process then a month later, all of the sudden I was being charged for the product late one night and it was shipped early the next morning before I even had a chance to read the two emails. I never hit the finish button and paid. Now I have a $64 bill to return this to them for something I never wanted in the first place.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Sit N Cycle

    This was the worse. The ad said 19.99, larger seat 24.00, add an extra Sit N Cycle at an 15% or 30% (I am so angry I can't remember). But the total at the end was 400+ dollars. They don't give any time to review or stop the order. Please put the word out not to buy this item. Tomorrow it goes on my Facebook and I will ask every one to share.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Upset

    They say one price and once you order, it goes from $19.99 to $239.00. I tried to cancel five minutes after ordered. I canceled shipment with post office, still received it. I sent it back and now they are claiming never received it. Be careful!

    Don't buy this item. From my experience, there is no customer service and I was on hold from 7:45 until 8:00 pm and then I get a recording that they closed they close at 8:00. This is very bad customer service.

    Not easy to assemble. Nothing lined up. It took over 3 hours to assemble. You can find something better and cheaper.

    Don't waste your time or money

    I ordered my Sit N Cycle and was very disappointed with the product, and the customer service. My belt broke after two weeks of use, and I offered to pay for a new belt and shipping. They referred me to a bicycle shop, but the belt cannot be found at a bicycle shop. Customer service apologized that they could not help any further, but if I wanted to buy a new bike, she would be happy to assist. Really? Reading reviews and taking them seriously would have saved me time and money. Lesson learned!

    Sit N Cycle

    • Newark.nj,
    • Jan 19, 2016

    I opened the box and saw all the pieces. I read the instruction book along with the reviews and then closed the box up. I will be sending it back ASAP. I am over 70 and there is no way i can put Sit N Cycle together or even lift it. I'm very disappointed.

      Exactly what happened to me. I should have known something was wrong when I never received an email confirmation immediately. Everything I've ever bought online sends a confirmation right away. What a scam.

      I did not check reviews first, dummy me. The ad said 19.95, when the total came up it was $239. And I ordered 2. I have to get out of this. This is a scam.

    Scam

    • Santa Clarita, California,
    • Jan 13, 2016

    I was very disappointed with this company. They told me that I could try for 30 days, as you can with this product. I decided to return it. The customer service representative told me that I have to pay to return the product. It would cost me more to ship it back. If you're planning to try it for 30 days, do not do it because if you decided not to keep it, you're stuck with it either way. Now I have to pay for this product that I do not want.

    Dont believe in their advertisement. It's a scam. Check your credit card.

    • Bellingham, WA,
    • Jan 11, 2016

    Ordered last night: 1 Sit N Cycle $19.99, plus the gel seat $24.99, for a total of 44.94. Free shipping. Then the amount charged totaled to $279.88. I called them up but couldn't connect with them. I went online to cancel my order. When I didn't get any response, I called my credit card. Was surprised that they have already charged me with $322.88. So I disputed the charges. This is a scam, beware.

      I was scammed, the bill went from 2x19.99 to $400 plus. I can't do this, I have to get out of this.
