Update: This model is no longer available. You will find several new models from Reebok, and many other ‘spinning’ type cycles which are similar in both spec, build and price range to this one. Here are my suggestions:
- Reebok ZR8 Exercise Bike (this one is a classic, a great looking mid-price model)
- DKN AM-E Exercise Bike (this one is a little cheaper, has very solid feedback from previous buyers)
- We R Sports Aerobic Training Cycle (looks great!)
Summary: This exercise bike looks different to anything else out there, almost futuristic. Underneath these good looks you’ll find a versatile mid-price machine with a 14kg flywheel (great for steady resistance). Fully adjustable vertically and horizontally for all shapes and sizes too. A great looking machine – check it at amazon.co.uk now!
- Sleek and Futuristic good looks from Reebok
- Fully adjustable for all shapes and sizes
- Mid-range price may be above some people’s price range
