Don't Buy Nordictrack!
Recumbent Bike GX4.0 and 5.0 Pro
LOGAN, UTAH -- NORDIC TRACK RECUMBENT BIKES, GX4.0 and 5.0 PRO -SAFETY AND HEALTH ISSUE WITH HEART RATE MONITOR, DESIGN FLAW AND DEFECT – MAY CAUSE STROKE OR DEATH OF USERS.
On 5-24-12, Supervisor Megan said, as a private company, it is policy not to give out any contact information for executives/executive office. She said to Nordicrrack I must write! This is bad customer relations and policy. Featured grip pulse monitor useless and can't be fixed. I worked w/incompetent CS reps from Jan to May 2012. Home visited 3 times. Waited for part over a month. Returned GX4.0 & upgraded to 5.0 Pro. It has same problem. CS representative did not give option to upgrade again for $100 to a $1299.00 Commercial bike selling for $699,.00 w/free shipping I found on NordicTrac site.. To tout and intentionally sell a feature that NordicTrack knows is defective and useless, is fraud, false advertising, and criminal'. I wrote to ICON, my DA, State AG, Utah's AG, the BB and the FTC:. ICON AND ITS BRANDS HAVE NO CONSCIENCE". The ICON Board and Executives should be brought before the courts/. There were other significant issues, but, for space I am not addressing them here:. This Safety and Health issue that may cause stroke and death is the salient one;. I have found many other reviews for this same issue.
Angry - you bet!!!

My positive intent is to warn other consumers about this safety and health hazard that may cause stroke or heart attack. It is my positive intent to also warn consumers that ICON considers the flawed and defective hand grip pulse rate to be working as designed, i. e., never stabilizing and consistently going from 60 to 160 pulse rates a minute. It is my positive intent to warn consumers that ICON has a policy not to inform consumers of how to contact their executive offices, or their executives. ICON also has a President's team, but again, policy is not to tell consumers about it.
