Exercise Bike Reviews
 
Stationary exercise bikes are the grandfather of home fitness equipment. In spite of the constantly changin, new and innovative fitness machines that enter the market, the stationary exercise bike remains a favorite.

Before we go into any specific models, let's have a look at some important features to watch out for...

Comfortable Seating (Saddle)

A comfortable seat can make or break the effectiveness of a stationary exercise bike. An uncomfortable saddle will ensure that you avoid working out and provide you with a new and expensive piece of standing art work.

Adjustable Resistance

All exercise bikes include the ability to adjust the resistance of your work out, however, it's the system that is used that is the most important. Typically, with higher quality bikes, it's possible to adjust the level of intensity by the push of a button. A quick esay change, but, low end bikes use a coarse dial that adjusts a tension strap that is attached to the wheel. A slight inconvenience that is better avoided.

Quiet Performance
A slight, but important, detail. A noisy exercise bike can turn into a nasty irritation.

Lower priced stationary bikes will offer a shorter warranty, however, you can speak to your supplier or merchant about extended product and service warranties.

Cost

Like all fitness equipment, the cost will influence you greatly. Stationary exercise bikes vary anywhere from $150.00 and up. $150.00 will generally get you a cheap exercise bike. $300.00 can get you an excellent bike that also meets all of the standards mentioned above.
