Exercise Equipment Reviews, Guides and Comparisons
by Editors of BestFitnessAdvisor.com
Our AssessmentWhile the reviews are largely specification and feature based, they also reveal good knowledge along with evidence that rated exercise bikes were assembled and used by the authors. You can find top-10 lists of the recumbent, upright and indoor (spinning) exercise bikes.
by Contributors to Amazon.com
Our AssessmentSeveral hundred models of upright and recumbent exercise bikes are available here, along with a variety of seatless pedal machines. Amazon.com allows owners to comment on the performance, durability, customer service and other important factors of the exercise bikes they sell. Reviews range from a few lines to paragraphs long, sometimes with updates over time. Ratings from 1 to 5 stars are provided.
by Editors of ConsumerReports.org
Our AssessmentConsumerReports.org tests eight indoor exercise bikes -- called spin bikes here. Two models are recommended, but only one is sold in the U.S. Ratings are provided, and exercise bikes are ranked, but discussion is nearly non-existent. Classic upright bicycles and recumbent bikes are not currently rated or reviewed.
by Contributors to Walmart.com
Our AssessmentWalmart.com is a good source to check for reviews of cheap exercise bikes. Its selection is fairly extensive and some models attract hundreds or even thousands of individual comments. The ratings are extra helpful for gauging durability since reviewers must list how long they've owned the bike.
by Contributors to Wayfair.com
Our AssessmentWayfair.com offers upright, recumbent and spin exercise cycles ranging in cost from $100 to more than $500. Some exercise bikes attract only a handful of reviews; others draw more than 100. However, comments tend to be brief.
by Contributors to Sears.com
Our AssessmentSears.com offers lots of models of indoor, upright and recumbent exercise bikes, and allows owners to review their purchases. Very few bikes, however, receive a significant number of comments.
by Contributors to DicksSportingGoods.com
Our AssessmentDicksSportingGoods.com is another site with online reviews. However, while plenty of exercise bikes of all types and price ranges are offered, few attract very many reviews.
Home Exercise Bike Reviews, Buying Guides & Information
by Greg and Holly Nunan
Our AssessmentThis website is managed by Greg and Holly Nunan, who have experience operating a large franchise chain of health clubs in Australia. While a number of exercise bikes -- especially indoor or "spin" bikes -- are covered, reviews tend to focus more on features than the results of any testing. Still the site features some good information and background regarding all types of exercise bikes.
Exercise Bike Reviews
by Nick Sharp and Editors of WxFitness.com
Our AssessmentEditors rank and name the best exercise bikes in several price brackets. Each single-product review is fairly lengthy, but seems to be based largely of features. Testing is not well detailed.
