3 pointers regarding the exercise bike

  1. For those looking for an inexpensive route into home fitness buying an exercise bike (either upright or recumbent) would be a great start.
  2. The exercise bike is probably the least technical piece of cardiovascular equipment other than the rowing machine and so can be bought at a relatively modest cost.
  3. As it supports body weight and gives a low impact workout it is especially useful to those recovering from injury, the elderly or just those looking to improve their cardiovascular fitness!

Key Features

As with a rowing machine, the main things to look for in an exercise bike are a smooth comfortable ride, a good warranty and a solid build construction.

  1. For build quality you should check to make sure that your products has a predominantly metal construction and that the joins/welds are smooth with no sharp or jagged edges that are the hallmark of poor quality manufacturing processes.  Also check the warranty as 2 years is the minimum you should be looking for.
  2. As far as comfort or ride quality goes you should ensure that the motion of the pedals is smooth and at no point in the rotation feels snappy.  Also ensure that the seat and pedals can be moved sufficiently to suit your body shape and limb movement.
  3. Recumbent bikes (mentioned above) are generally easier to get on and off.  They also offer more back support.  They are usually slightly more expensive though.
  4. The console (on the whole) will be more complex and useful for goal tracking with the more expensive bikes.

Lastly we’ll talk about the flywheel and braking mechanism.

  1. The heavier the flywheel, the more congruous the movement will feel.
  2. The smoothest braking system is an electric one.  This is used on products with programmes such as heart rate and hill profiles.  The other main method of braking is mechanical.  This is often found on Spin Bikes and requires a heavy flywheel and brake pads, which do require more maintenance/changing.
