Which Personal Product Review Still Gets 5 Stars After a Year?

After giving it some thought, I picked my favorite personally used and reviewed product over the past year.

While pondering and pedaling, I realized my favorite purchase (actually, it was a gift) out of all the reviews I've written and recommended is ... drumroll .....  "The Cubii."

This Personally Reviewed Product Still Rates 5 Stars After Nearly One Year of Use

I'd give The Cubii ten stars if I could. My mother purchased it last year for me as an early birthday gift, and it's been sitting under my desk since then. 

I use it every day. In fact, I'm using it right now as I'm typing this article.

What's So Great About This Product?

Here's the list, based on my personal experience:
  • It's top quality
  • It's not cheap feeling or cheap looking
  • It's completely quiet! It doesn't make a sound! No squeaks whatsoever!
  • It fits nicely under my desk
  • It's always there, so the possibility of exercise is always there
  • It has a grip mat, so it doesn't slide around
  • As soon as I sit at my desk, I can pedal
  • When stressed or frustrated, I pedal faster
  • If you're desk-bound for the entire day, you can pedal all-day
  • Stop and start pedaling whenever you want
  • It's addictive in a good way!
  • Your glutes and thighs get a workout
  • I feel less guilty sitting for an extended period when I'm pedaling!
  • It helps me to think of new ideas when I'm creatively stuck
  • It feels good to pedal
  • You can adjust the tension, track calories burned, etc
  • It's not too big
  • It hides nicely under my desk, making it unassuming

Which Personally Reviewed Products Over the Past Couple of Years Rank 2 and 3 as a Fave?
2. Something for the yard or garden - I still love this one.

3. Something for the bedroom -  Yep,this does the job. 


If you've seen the commercials for the Cubii and wondered whether it does what it says, I say, wonder-no-more; it's a solid, useful product. After one year, it still gets 5 stars from me.

  1. That is probably the best recommendation of all ~ that after a year a product holds up well to continuous use and still pleases the consumer. Thanks for the 5-Star reminder, Barbara.

    1. Ms. Elf, thank you - pedaling right now while on my computer :)

  2. Very interesting. I have seen the photos on TV and always wondered about this product. Thanks for the recommendation.

  3. If I had a desk, I know I would want a cubii. I'm no crazy about taking time to just exercise and it would be a great way to exercise without concentrating on "exercise". If I ever do have a desk again, my second purchase will be a Cubii.

    1. You put that exactly right, it's a way to exercise without thinking about it - I just sat down in front of my laptop for a bit, and the first thing I did was start to pedal, I'm pedaling again right now <3

  4. When I have a desk again, I, too, will seriously consider buying a Cubii. Building exercise into one’s routine automatically is the key to consistency - something I lack and really need!

    1. you said it, "automatically" - it's just there so you do it :)

  5. Barbara, I would have guessed that you still love the Cubii! I have an under desk exercise unit as well. Not a Cubii, but similar and I agree they are wonderful to have and great for keeping your body in motion. Good exercise while doing other tasks is a bonus for sure. Glad you are still in love with it!

    1. awesome that you do under desk exercises too - they're such a terrific way to fit in movement when you're working
