Recumbent Exercise Bikes Reviewed
 

The discomfort that is associated with traditional exercise bikes can be overcome with the Recumbent exercise bike. More than 15-20 minutes on a traditional saddle is a challenge for the majority of people. Those that are overweight, or who suffer from lower back pain, find it especially disagreeable.

Recumbent bikes offer lower back support and disperse the pressure of the upper body on the buttocks region with armchair-like seats. Placing feet in stirrups and balancing on such a small seat, as those on the traditional bikes, can be difficult for overweight or older individuals. The recumbent bike seats overcome both of these issues.

Bulkier than the traditional upright exercise bikes, the recumbent bikes tend to take up less floor space. And if you enjoy reading or watching TV while you work out, then the reclined position makes it easier to do both.

Recumbent exercise bikes are not a great choice for more seasoned road cyclists. The ergonomics and movement patterns of a recumbent bike provide a totally different feel. But for the majority, who are simply looking to improve their health and fitness, the recumbent bike is the preferred choice for comfort.

Here is a list of reasonably priced, quality recumbent exercise bikes...

Weslo Pursuit 525CS Recumbent Bike
This is just about the lowest priced recumbent bike around. Although basic, it is more solid than most others in this same price range. A manually adjusted friction control option, this model includes a basic console that offers the essential read outs, minus the heart rate monitor.

ProForm VR980 Recumbent Bike (Our Pick)
Just slightly more expensive than the above Weslo, the Proform replaces Weslo's manual friction resistance with a smooth and consistent Eddy resistance mechanism. It's console also features all of the regular readouts like calories, time, distance, and speed, but the largest positive over the Welso is that the Proform offers a pulse rate grip to monitor your heart rate. On the whole, the best low cost recumbent exercise bike.

Reebok CYC12 Recumbent Bike
Priced at just under $600.00, the Reebok CYC12 is a well-built, high quality machine. It offers a pulse grip heart rate monitoring system, 6 pre-programmed work outs, and a large LCD display that showcases all the data you'll need. the back rest and seat are angled to reduce any undue pressure on your lower back, making it a very comfortable machine.
