by Contributors to Sears.com
Our AssessmentOwners can also post reviews and ratings of exercise bikes at Sears.com, but comments tend to be much briefer than at Amazon.com. Readers may find a bottom-line assessment of whether the reviewer would recommend the stationary bike to a friend useful.
Shop Exercise Bikes
by Contributors to DicksSportingGoods.com
Our AssessmentThis major sporting goods retailer also posts owner reviews of exercise bikes. Lots of machines are listed, but most attract just a few to a few dozen comments at most. Still, the opinions available can help shoppers narrow down their choices or provide additional feedback on an exercise bike they're considering.
Fitness Bike Reviews
by Contributors to Buzzillions.com
Our AssessmentBuzzillions.com compiles feedback from smaller retail and other third-party review sites. The comments include a rating of 1 to 5 stars and typically brief discussion. Some of the exercise bikes listed here get a large number of reviews, sometimes numbering into the hundreds.
by Contributors to Walmart.com

by Contributors to Wayfair.com
Our AssessmentSome exercise bikes attract only a handful of reviews at Wayfair.com; others like the Marcy ME 709 draw more than 100. One downside is that comments tend to be brief.

Pro Form Le Tour de France Cycling Bike with Power
by John Macgowan
Our AssessmentHere a certified instructor discusses the club potential of the Tour de France bike. Macgowan likes its incline-decline feature, but is critical of the power meter's accuracy. It appears that he doesn't actually test the product, however, and he doesn't provide a rating.
Best Exercise Bike
by Arthur Thares
Our AssessmentThares, a certified personal trainer, reviews but doesn't rate several exercise bikes for Bestcovery.com. Links to brief single-product write-ups describe the bike's features and why it's picked as one of the best. However, there are few downsides noted and it doesn't appear that any of the bikes are personally tested.
