Phnbkr- Works great but there is one major issue.Feb 21, 2021

Used it for about 2 months now, and overall it's worked flawlessly. That aside I have one major issue with it, one that if I had the ability to try this bike for a while before I bought it I would've passed. I hate that the VU19 doesn't have a crossbar handle and only has the two vertical ones. It is not a natural position and puts your wrists in a compromising load bearing position when trying to do any off the seat work. Because of this it feels like many of the iFit bike workouts are not really geared towards this bike. I am going to try and fabricate some kind of cross bar for it.
