For a bike that will last as your fitness improves you will need it to have a large resistance range. This ensures you can increase the difficulty as you get fitter. A large resistance range is also important for creating interesting workouts which simulate hill climbing for example.
Exercise Bike Flywheel Size
The flywheel size of a bike is important as it will determine the bike’s maximum resistance. An enjoyably smooth and silent ride is also only possible with a large flywheel, if the flywheel is too small the ride will be more jerky.
Adjustable Seating Position
To enjoy cycling as a low impact, long term form of exercise it is vitally important the bike is set up perfectly in line with your biomechanics. As such a fully adjustable bike is highly recommended.
The key considerations with a cycling computer are accuracy and options. You will want confidence in your data and it is worth checking what is tracked as the number of metrics recorded do vary. Programs are a great way to vary your workouts and stay motivated. Some cycling computers even enable you to connect to Google Maps or similar so you can take a cycling tour from the comfort of your home!
This is clearly vitally important but notoriously difficult to decipher online. It is worth checking out the total product weight here as lower quality, less stable fitness bikes will tend to weigh less.
Choosing Where You Put Your Exercise Bike
We recommend that you don’t keep electric fitness equipment in cold rooms or garages. In the winter months, the temperature fluctuates which causes condensation inside the computer and circuit board.
Check Customer Reviews
Reviews are a great way to understand if a company is as good as they say they are. We collate our reviews in association with TrustPilot, which means you can be absolutely sure they are independent, authentic reviews from genuine customers.
Money Back Guarantees
If you are buying fitness equipment over the internet make sure you have the right to change your mind once you have assembled the machine and tried it out. Most reputable companies have a 28 day money back guarantee as long as you return it in the original packaging and pay for delivery costs. See our ‘no quibbles’ returns policy.
Often warranties are from the original manufacturer rather than the company you bought the machine from. Make sure the warranty covers in-home repairs or the delivery and collection costs for your machine. Otherwise, you may find bike repairs which cost as much as the original purchase.
After The Warranty Period
If the machine has a short warranty period it’s worth enquiring how much it will cost to fix the machine and the cost of parts.
