Stationary Exercise Bike(3 posts)

Stationary Exercise BikeDCP

My wife is very committed to not joining my bike riding passion. She is, however, thinking about replacing her treadmill with a stationary exercise bike. Part of her thinking is that I would use the exercise bike.

There is no way she would find a trainer or rollers acceptable. She does not have bike and will not buy one.

Most of the stationary bikes I see in stores are just awful. I do spin classes and would find that kind of bike acceptable, but I have not seen them in the sporting goods stores.

Does anyone have any buying wisdom? Where can you find these bikes? Are there brands that are better than others?

Thanks in advance.

But not sure post-banruptcy where. I've seen these in those shops for $599. Schwinn fitness website should guide you. www.schwinn.com and try fitness from there.

I don't like the feel of the Lemond bikes (they have them at one gym I go to). The Schwinns feel much nicer to pedal. You should be able to find them at an exercise supply store. The club models can be pricey though.
