This is awesome. 20 mins to assemble and a solid bike is ready.
Only con so far is the pedal adjustment is not adequate.
I would recommend Titan and this product to all my buddies.

Myself and my wife have been using the Titan Fitness Folding X Bike for 2 weeks now. This bike has been used on a daily basis for warming up before exercise and also creating 20-minute circuit training workouts.
First the folding x bike comes with a value minded price tag and free shipping. It also comes with a 1-year guarantee as well as a 100% satisfaction guarantee. For me that makes it a low-risk buying situation.
After 2 weeks I can say that the quality of the X Bike is high. Titan Fitness continues to impress with their pricing, the way they stand behind their items and the quality they pull out on most of their items. This bike is not for everyone but is for the majority of people that need an exercise bike at home, to either engage in some warm up activity or resistance cycling training in a space saving and economical design.
I wont go into any setup instructions. The provided instructions made setting up a breeze. It took 15 minutes to set the bike up following the directions exactly as stated with the included manual. It also came with all tools needed to set the bike up properly. I would however recommend a 13 mm wrench and socket for the seat bolts when attaching. The angle of the seat lip makes it difficult to tighten the bolts with the provided wrench.
The Titan Fitness Folding X Bike comes with several height adjustments that should accommodate most people from 5’3″ to 6’1″.
Resistance is on a scale of one to eight. I do alot of power lifting and find the 8 scale a little weak. I would like more options to crank up the weight resistance, My wife on the other hand finds the 8 more than enough for some serious interval training. Depending on your strength the highest 8 setting may be enough or you may need a little extra oomph.
The digital readout was a nice touch and had some surprising features for an item in this price range. Features included Time, Current speed (in kilometers/hr), Distance (in kilometers), calories, odometer and pulse rate. When I used the pulse rate it was surprisingly accurate to within 1 bpm. The readout requires 2 AA batteries. These came with the device.
The pedals feet my feet nicely. The pedal strap adjustments could use a bit more slack adjustment in their ability to transition for differing foot sizes but as long as I was wearing sneakers the foot pedal adjustment provided a snug fit.
I used the Titan Fitness Folding Exercise X Bike for some interval training but have mostly used it as a pre workout warmup device. My wife has used it steadily as her tri weekly exercise bike interval trainer. Point is, the X Bike gets used quite a bit and the comfort of the seat is better than some of the higher end bikes I have ridden at local health clubs.
The ride is smooth. The X Bike does not make much noise during the ride and that noise level has stayed steady over the past 2 weeks without increasing. For me there was some mild wobble noticed due to the small footprint. My wife was quick to point out it was my glunky unrefined riding style. For my wife and her “more refined” riding style, this was not noticed.
The foldability of the Titan Fitness Folding Exercise X Bike creates a unique storage option that is not seen in this arena. It wont quite fit under the bed but it fits nicely hung up on the wall or in the corner of any office or home gym space. Measurements of the width when folded, were 17 inches if laid on the side and 17 and 3/4 inches when folded front to back.
The warranty on the Titan Fitness Folding Exercise X Bike is 1 year with a 100% satisfaction guarantee and this makes me feel encouraged and like Im engaging in a low risk purchase when I see those attributes attached to any buying decision.
-Minor wobble for some
-Resistance level could be higher for some
-Foot pedal straps should come with greater adjustment
All in all this has proven to be an excellent addition to our home gym or should I say was. I ended up using the bike as my perfect lower body warm up device while my wife used it for her interval training. One day I came out to the garage gym to use the X Bike and it was gone. Where you ask? My wife decided to take it to work and use it during her lunch hour. She stores it in her office and just unfolds it from the corner when she is ready to use it. Albeit a tad frustrating…Im glad she has found a way to get a workout in during the lunch hour. Needless to say we are happy with the Titan Fitness Folding Exercise X Bike. It serves its purpose and despite a couple of cons, the pros overwhelm the X Bike making it an unbelievably good value.
