Best Exercise Bikes For Short People
Here are some of the best rated exercise bikes for short people that you can find in the market. If you’re body is shorter than 5’5″ any one of these will make a good fit. Two of them are recumbent and one is an upright model. A recumbent bike put less stress on your back so it’s generally more comfortable to workout on compared to an upright.
The whole bike feels stable and sturdy. It’s not super sturdy like a $1,000 bike and it wobbles a bit when you’re riding hard but that’s it.
Most people enjoy exercising while watching TV or listening to musics. The Stamina 15-0200 is a magnetic-resistance bike so it’s a very quiet exercise machine. If you want to listen to musics you won’t need to use headphones to block any noise, because there aren’t any.
You can buy one online for less than $200 (free shipping included). If you don’t want to spend over $500 of a piece of exercise bike this one is a fine choice.
* Small footprint
It takes up very little space and since it’s foldable you can save even more space. A perfect choice for people who live in small apartment and for those who just can’t find enough space to put huge exercise bike in the house.
* Some say the seat is rather hard. If you think it’s not comfortable enough you can put a towel on the seat or use a bike seat cushion.
The air-resistance flywheel used in Airdyne uses simple mechanism. More durable than bikes that use mechanical or magnetic resistance. Being simple also means it’s low maintenance. You can comfortably ride it hours a day, seven days a week and it will still hold up for years. When you hear someone say he’s been using the old Airdyne model for over 10 years that’s no joke, it’s the truth.
* Easy to use
You don’t need to adjust any knob when you want to increase or decrease the resistance. You just simply pedal faster to increase the resistance.
* It Works Your Upper Body Too
That means you’ll burn more calories faster.
* “Built-in Fan”
When you exercise the wheel blows wind to cool you down. Its nice because when you finish working out you don’t end up sweating too much.
* Doesn’t take too much space
It’s not foldable but it’s slim and can be easily placed in any room in your house.
The major drawback of an Airdyne is that it makes loud noise as you pedal. So, unlike the Stamina above, you can’t comfortable watch TV while exercising on this thing.
* Assembly manual slightly confusing
It’s really shameful that Schwinn didn’t put its best effort making the manual. Some people even say that the assembly manual is terrible. This can be easily remedied though. Just go to the Airdyne website and download the newer version of the assembly manual.
After two years of suffering at the gym, I got nothing out of it but aches and pains. But with this bike, you can just sit and watch TV and work up a heavy sweat. I was a bit concerned when I ordered it that it would be too easy and not be a real workout, but it absolutely is. Your back stays comfortable, there’s no stress on your joints, but your muscles get as much of a workout as they need. You can get on and off it so easily that I will weave little mini workouts right into my day. I wish I got it sooner.
* Lightweight And Small
If you live in a small apartment or just don’t have enough room for a huge exercise equipment in your house this bike will fit just fine. You can even fold it to make it even smaller for storage.
* Smooth And Quiet
* Easy assembly
It’s really an easy bike to put together. The directions are clear and you can complete the whole bike in less than an hour.
* 5 Resistance Levels
* Got Wheels
This thing is easy to move around thanks to the small wheels. Moving it from one room to another is a piece of cake.
It’s already a small machie
* Assembly manual a bit heavy on graphics
