We all know the benefits that cycling provides. It is one of best cardio exercises you can do to burn off lots of calories. But getting out on the roads is not always possible and is very dependant on the weather. That’s why many people buy an exercise bike for the home, so that they can workout even when the weather is bad outside.
But the problem with having them in the home is they can be quite bulky and can be in the way. That’s why many people are choosing mini exercise bikes that they can not only use in the home but also put them under the desk and use at work too. Now there is no excuse for not getting that daily workout!
So let’s take a look at our 3 best mini exercise desk bikes picks that we feel are worth a mention;
#1 – DeskCycle Desk Exercise Bike Pedal Exerciser, White
The DeskCycle Desk Exercise Bike Pedal Exerciser is not the cheapest mini exercise bike on the market but it is in our opinion one of the better options right now. It has extremely low pedal height, just 10 inches which means you can easily use it with desks that are as low as 27 inches. It also has twice the resistance that other cheaper bikes have too. There are 8 different resistance settings in total, from easy through to very difficult. It uses magnetic resistance which means it is very quiet to use, so perfect for office use. The built in display shows you how long you have been cycling, how far travelled, speed and also how many calories you have burned.
Overall, this cycle provides one of best quality and the most options available of all mini exercise bikes we have seen so far.
#2 – Sunny Health & Fitness SF-B0418 Magnetic Mini Exercise Bike, Gray
The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-B0418 Magnetic Mini Exercise Bike comes a close second, as it too is packed with features and very well built indeed. It has a built in handle making it really easy to carry around and the pedals are designed to work with both the feet and the hands, so you can workout the upper body as well as your legs. There are 8 levels of magnetic resistance and the LCD display shows you the distance travelled, time taken, speed and calories you have burned in the process. It is suitable for people up to 220 pounds in weight.
#3 – Platinum Fitness Fit Sit Deluxe Folding Pedal Exerciser Leg Machine
The third best bike on our list is the Platinum Fitness Fit Sit Deluxe Folding Pedal Exerciser Leg Machine. This is the cheapest one but is also very well made and has some great reviews. It has a quick folding frame which makes it ideal to carry around and also to store away when not in use. You don’t need any tools at all to do this which is a great feature. It has an LCD display which like the models above tells you the time taken, distance travelled and calories burned. There is also an anchor strap included which stops the bike from moving when you are using it.
That concludes this mini exercise bike review. As you can see, if you want the best quality machine that will last for years, then sometimes it is worth paying a bit more for.
