The True UC 900 Upright Bike with Emerge Console is a winner in our book and has many qualities that make it shine brilliantly despites its lack of entertainment features. While quite pricey, a residential user will rest assured this bike will offer many years of service making it worth the large initial investment. The warranties themselves add value to the UC 900 as competitive models have lower and even no warranty options which is hard to believe in any price range.
