Tips for Buying Stationary Bikes

Get the best exercise bike for your home gym

Best Recumbent Bikes for Home GymsNo home gym is complete without a stationary bike that provides a great cardio workout.  If you’re in the market for an exercise bike that will be durable AND provide you with the features you need, it’s important to buy the best exercise cycle you can.

  1. Recumbent bike vs upright bike?
    An upright bike is more common than a recumbent bike. It takes less space and is geared more like a regular street bike. A recumbent bike has a backrest and the pedals are more in front than under the user. For someone older, bad back, pregnant, or not able to function on an upright bike,the recumbent bike will give the same benefits as the upright, but with more comfort. Get one that would have a lumbar support. This helps with keeping the back arched properly.

  2. Heavy flywheel
    A heavy flywheel like the Spirit XBR 95 Recumbent Bike has, at 30 lbs, makes the pedaling extremely smooth. It feels like and expensive machine. Light flywheels make the movement choppy at times and the pedaling can get rather uncomfortable after 15 to 20 minutes. Units that have heavy flywheels are also better built with stronger metal throughout, making them last for years without repairs.

  3. Seat adjustment
    Make sure, for those people who are short, under 5″ tall, and those who are very tall, over 6′ 5″ that either the recumbent or upright seat is adjustable for your height. If not, you may not reach the pedals, or your legs will be too long and your knees will hit the computer or handlebar. The Spirit XBR 95 seat adjusts for almost any height within normal.

  4. Weight capacity
    Always purchase a bike with a weight capacity of at least 285 lbs. When a heavy person gets on an upright bike and they pedal at a fast rate,The seat moves laterally quite a bit and this is hard on the metal parts holding the shaft of the bike. The Spirit CU 800 light commercial bike has a weight capacity of 450 lbs. This kind of capacity will keep the structural frame intact for years to come.
