Tips on Buying an Exercise Bike

How to Buy Recumbent Exercise Bikes

Buying Guide to Choosing an Upright Exercise Bike for Your Home Gym

When you decide to purchase an exercise bike, you should first find a place in your home where you can place it. Then, you’ll need to think about whether or not you want an upright exercise bike, a semi recumbent bike, or a recumbent exercise bike.

Once you have made the decision of which type of bike you want, check out the reviews that are available in bike magazines and also on the internet. You can also take the advice of family and friends who are currently using the same as  well as personal trainers who have experience. The reviews on exercise bikes are normally rates in accordance to their performance, functions that they have, as well as the type of material that is used for constructing the exercise bikes.

Best Exercise Bike for YOU

The exercise bike that you select should be very comfortable to sit on and the seat should be easy to adjust, as it otherwise it would be really hard to cycle on. If the height of the seat is wrong, it can put a lot of pressure in your lower area, specifically the groin. To find out more about these types of features, it is very important that you read a review as the reviews can give you valuable information about the features of exercise bikes.

Reviews

Reviews have other advantages as well. A lot of times, websites on the internet will offer special discounts on the exercise bikes as well, which is just another benefit to reading the reviews. After you have read the reviews, you’ll be able to negotiate for a better price once you talk to the sales person.

No matter how you look at it, you really can’t go wrong with reading a review on exercise bikes. You can find out anything you want to know, as well as get opinions from those who already own the equipment. A majority of the time,  you can find out flaws as well, which can save you a lot of time and effort.

Try Before You Buy

Going to local gyms is also a great way to find out about exercise bikes. If you don’t want to buy one or if you don’t have the space to keep one at home, you can always join a local gym and use one there. There are several different types available at your local gym, with everything from standard exercise bikes to the newer electronic versions.

Whether you choose to buy on for home use or use one at the gym, an exercise bike can help you stay in shape. All you need to do is ride it a few minutes a day, and you’ll be amazed at just how much it helps you. Considered to be a part of cardio, an exercise bike can help you lose weight and tone your body down like never before.

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.

At Fitness Superstore, our commitment is to offer the highest quality fitness equipment AND to help you get the most out of your workouts.

Kettler Ergorace Review

Kettler ErgoRacer Exercise BikeThe Kettler Ergoracer is probably the best indoor racing bike ever developed. Built well, strong, heavy and designed to accommodate any height of user.

Its specialty is that is uses a different kind of brake system compared to most other bikes. It has what’s called an electromagnetic brake system.

What is the definition of electromagnetic brake?

A non-contact brake design actuated when an electric current charges a coil that acts as an electromagnet. Meaning that an electrical current goes into a coiled block of metal and wire to create a magnet. The power of the magnet is dictated by the amount of current given to it. There are no moving parts, servo motor or anything else that could go wrong down the road with extensive use.

The performance of speed is measured in Watts from 25 to 600. This is certainly way more resistance than the normal bikes will offer, either with a moving magnet plate or a padded brake system. It is also noiseless. You can’t hear a thing. This system offers 115 levels of electromagnetic, frictionless Eddy Current brake resistance.

The saddle is geared to move up and down as well as front to back. Because of the v shape of the bike, the handlebars are also geared for the bigger and taller user as it will extend outwards and away from the cyclist who would have a long reach. The flywheel is a heavy 18 kg, or 40 lbs. The regular/kombi-click pedals are geared for both cyclists using regular sports footwear, or shoes with SPD click system. The frame is factory milled and robotically welded, using a design steel tubing for greater strength, corrosion proof, galvanized coating outside and in, finished with a high quality powder coat.

It comes with a Polar, wireless chest strap, giving you and accurate heart rate reading. There are elbow pads for the cyclist that likes to ride bent forward. It uses a poly v-ribbed belt that is much quieter than a regular chain
belt.

The Kettler Ergoracer’s computer provides 8 training programs including a heart rate control. You can enter your age, and either fat burning or fitness zone to determine your upper pulse limit. There is a recovery pulse feature that helps track improvements in cardiovascular conditioning with personal grades from 1, being the best, to 6. For the serious user, you can use the USB Interface for interactive software training and interchangeable pre-set programs with internet downloads from www.kettlerusa.com.

Kettler Ergoracer weighs just under 175 lbs. This gives it great stability when the user is over 250 lbs. It’s capacity is 285 lbs. It comes with a lifetime warranty on frame, 3s electronics and parts, and 1 year labor. Most spinning bikes have what’s called a direct drive system that make the pedals move as long as the flywheel moves. The Ergoracer  has a coasting flywheel that lets the user free pedal if he wishes to take a break from pedaling. All he has to do is start pedaling again and he’ll
reach the motion of the flywheel.

If you’re Joe athlete, this is a bike you’ll appreciate. the Kettler Ergoracer will last an eternity, and is almost a toy for the hard core athlete as well as the beginner. I’ve sold many and have yet to have any problems, big or small. There are a lot of bikes on the market today, but few if any can compare with the Kettler Ergoracer.
