How long will the Expresso Espresso Go Upright last?

Built with a steel frame, the Expresso Go Upright Bike has a substantial 165 lb. fully assembled weight and holds up to 350 lbs. maximum capacity. Best suited for moderate use, the Expresso Go will last years with proper care and maintenance despite the limited warranty offered by the manufacturer. The Go Upright is only covered for 3 years on parts, labor, and the computer. The fine print states users must have their bikes registered, online, on surge protection, and maintain a continuous eLive Plus subscription without any cancellation periods to be covered by the warranty. The coverage lapses if any interruption occurs which is rather disheartening for a machine in this price range.

Brief Overview

The Expresso Go Upright Bike is a previous Best Buy winner and packs quite a punch for the price. It has quality components and high-tech features to motivate riders to the extreme during exercise sessions. While it is not for the budget-conscious, the Expresso Go Upright offers engaging rides for users of most fitness levels and has a sleek design that will fit nicely into any home workout space.

Overall Quality

One main feature of the Expresso Go Upright Bike that helps truly create an interactive experience is the ability to turn the handlebars when riding. This along with the automatic resistance change when variations occur on the screen during training sessions help each ride mimic the feel of outdoor cycling. The Go Upright has 30 levels of resistance for higher intensity training and a “ghost” feature where you compete against previous individual performances for personal motivation. The standard seat can be switched for a saddle of choice and has 20 vertical and 9 horizontal adjustments to better fit a larger range of riders. A paid subscription to eLive Plus gets access to elite trainers and games that keep riders cycling to evade dragons or race through lovely world-wide destinations.
