Upright Exercise Bike Reviews
 
Many believe that there are more upright exercise bikes in the Western home than any other type of exercise equipment or machine. 

Compared to a treadmill, exercise bikes offer less stress and are a much more affordable alternative. However, despite being a low impact exercise, cycling is still an excellent way to get fit and to lose weight.

What does an upright exercise bike offer that a recumbent exercise bike doesn't? Little, other than a more accurate simulation of a road bicycle and that some people find it harder to push themselves in a more comfortable, laid back, position as that of a recumbent bike. An upright bike generates more power and speed, as gravity is acting directly downwards through the legs.

If you're a seasoned road cyclist and are looking for an alternative during the winter months, an upright bike is your best choice. However, if you only want to keep fit, you might want to consider a recumbent bike more closely.

While the number of upright bikes on the market represents their popularity, it also makes the decision process that much harder. The best thing to do is to stick to well known brands like Reebok, Nordic Track, Schwinn, Weslo, and Proform, which are just a few to mention.

The following are a selection of reasonably priced upright exercise bikes...



Proform 920S Exercise Bike (Our Pick)
The system that enables you to adjust the resistance on an upright exercise bike is one of the most important features. Lower priced upright bikes use unrefined friction mechanisms that make up the comfort and enjoyment of bicycling. This model is the least expensive exercise bike to use a magnetic resistance system, which is not only smooth, but which is similiar to those found in commercial gyms. The Proform 920S features 4 work out programs on its electronic console, which also displays the usual read outs like, time, speed, resistance, calories burned, etc. It also offers a pulse grip heart rate monitor and an adjustable seat and handlbars. A great value overall.

Reebok CYC2i Upright Bike
Only slightly more expensive that the above Proform model, the Reebok CYC2i also features a magnetic resistance system and a pulse grip heart rate monitoring system. As for it's features and specification, it is very close to the Proform. The largest difference is the name brand. Also a great value!
