Another Q&A with a Satisfied FlexiSpot Desk Bike User
December 17, 2021
There’s no doubt that FlexiSpot customers love the V9 Pro Home Office Height Adjustable Cycle Desk Bike and with good reason.
When you go to the site and check out the bike, what you’ll see is a perfect five-star rating from 268 reviews. Even content creators could attest how the bike changed their work dynamics. Some started wanting to get their hands on one because they could not find the time to exercise in the middle of their hectic work schedule. After they tried it, they couldn’t believe that it also helped with their work performance. Not to be biased (but we probably are), this desk bike is an ultimate game-changer. We love it so much in the headquarters; we couldn’t stop talking about it. It still racks our brains that this one addition in a workstation could have such a huge impact on an employee’s work performance.
The V9 Pro Home Office Height Adjustable Cycle Desk Bike In Focus
The V9 Pro in white looks so sleek and classic that it can surely fit any workstation aesthetic without people batting an eyelash. It is gender-neutral and can work for both male and female users.
We’re proud to say that this original design was a 2018 Honoree in the CES Innovation Awards! Not only is the design award-winning, but the performance is also top of the class. It will definitely help you be productive at work and overall stay active in life. Even if you have a sedentary desk job, with this desk bike, you would be burning a significant number of calories—depending on your fitness goal and how hard you work for it!
Because of the pneumatic adjustment lever, the seat is easily adjustable to your height. Its built-in integrated digital display shows readouts for workout time, calories burned, and speed. It has eight resistance levels to choose from, ranging from light to robust. According to some reviews online and from our personal experiences, you would hardly feel any resistance at 1 and it’s already difficult to pedal at 8.
We got some reviews reporting that they are adjusting to the comfortability of the seat for the first few days but once they got the hang of it, it’s very comfortable and can accommodate long hours of sitting. The bike’s lockable gravity casters would keep the bike locked in your desired spot. It also has a removable spacious desktop where you can put your laptop and phone and be removed when you please. Moreover, because of the whisper-quiet operation, it gives you a quiet and smooth cycling experience that won’t disturb people in the same place as you.
Exclusive Q&A with a Certified Flexispot desk Bike User
We’ve done this before and it was fun! So we reached out to another one of you for a quick chat about his experience with the Flexispot V9 Pro Home Office Height Adjustable Cycle Desk Bike. Here’s how the email conversation went:
Can you introduce yourself?
I’m Carlos, 26 years old, from Toronto, Canada. I work as a content creator meaning I make content for brands in the fashion and travel industries. If there’s a big client, work really becomes so busy, especially if it’s a campaign that runs for months. I’m very thankful for jobs like those but, to be honest, I tend to take my health for granted when I’m hustling so hard. As a content creator, I also need to be on top of my business and have side jobs as well as finish personal errands.
What made you decide to buy a FlexiSpot V9 Pro Bike?
As I said, I tend to take my health for granted but I’m not growing any younger and I know how important it is. So I’ve really been looking for ways to bring back activity in my life despite being so busy. When I saw this desk bike back at the start of 2020, I had no idea what it is but I checked it out asap. I didn’t know that working under my desk was a thing but it was really perfect for me. I love cardio, I love cycling outdoors, and those indoor spin classes are a banger. Once I knew that I do it at home while working, I knew I had to get one. I immediately bought this FlexiSpot bike because of all the reviews I read online.
How long have you been using it?
I’ve been using it since August 2019 so I've been a fan of the desk bike for more than two years now.
What makes you keep using it?
As I’ve said, it helps me stay active. I’m able to cycle for around an hour or two every day. My mind becomes awake and alert which I need for my writing job. During the first two weeks, if I can recall correctly, it was already a breeze. The first two levels of resistance were hardly a chore and it already helped me burn some calories. Now, I usually use Resistance Level 3 or 4 when I’m working, then I switch it up to 5 or 6 when I want a strenuous exercise.
What do you like most about the desk bike?
I do a lot in my job and it ranges from dancing to singing to hosting and even gaming. It requires me to move around and to also make sure my desk is always clean. Because of all these things I have to do, I didn’t think it would be possible that I could cycle while doing it. I swear by my word that no matter what I do on my desk, this is very easy to use. It does not feel like I’m working out at all but I’m losing calories when I look at the built-in display. When I weighed myself, I did lose those calories! Plus, the cycling is very quiet, and never once did my neighbor or girlfriend complain. My girlfriend even uses it. She’s 5’6 and I’m around 6’4 and this bike could work excellently for both of us. The seat is easily adjustable and could carry our individual weights comfortably. I think my girlfriend is thinking of buying one herself.
Not to mention, this is really portable as well because my sister borrowed it the other day and we did not have any trouble moving it from here to her house in one piece.
What did you not like, if any?
The seat took a few days to adjust to. But maybe after 2 to 3 days, the discomfort was gone and it was really comfortable! I don’t feel any strain except of course for the resistance of the pedals. And to be honest, I was 50-50 with it helping with weight loss but it didn’t disappoint and man, I burned calories! I use it I think about three times a week for an intense session and use it three times a week every time I work.
Did the desk bike meet your expectations?
Definitely exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend remote workers to try it out, especially those stuck in sedentary jobs and want to be active again.
