Summary: The Exerpeutic Folding Exercise Bike fills an important gap in the market. Folding bikes, which have an ‘A’ frame, are super-popular. Most of them are also flimsy – or even worse, wobbly! What the brains at Exerpeutic have done is to make a folding exercise bike that is stable, solid, and versatile enough to cover users of many fitness levels.
With more than 10k comments left by happy buyers, this plan has been a big success. You can see words like ‘brilliant’ and ‘sturdy’ again and again in these comments.

When it is ready to use, this bike is 78.7cms long, 48.3cms wide and 116.8cms tall. It is bigger than many rival folding home bikes – though only by a little. It uses a standard ‘A’ frame, though with an important addition. There is a sliding bar between the main bar holding the saddle and the rear base. This adds stability. With the grooved sliding system reducing wear and tear.
Standard plastic ended bars keep the unit stable. Many people choose to get a rubber mat with their bike. This protects the floor, as well as adding stability.
This bike weighs in at 39lbs. The maximum user weight that Exerpeutic recommend is 136kgs, which is over 21 stone in ‘old money’. It is listed as suitable for people from 5’3” to 6’1”. This bike looks stylish compared to rival products, with a silver and dark grey colour scheme.
Small touches keep a lot of different Exerpeutic products popular. The saddle for this bike is wide and cushioned… no razor-thin spinner saddle here! The pedals have adjustable straps, which you can change to stop your feet coming off without being too tight / restrictive.
The Exerpeutic Folding bike has 8 levels of resistance. This is magnetic, which is smoother and longer lasting than the belt resistance format. You control this via a dial, which is placed just beneath the console. The final small touch is the built-in transportation wheels. They let you move your bike into place quickly and easily.
You get a small LCD monitor, which does the basics well. This shows readouts of your speed, distance, calories burned, time spent peddling and pulse rate. To use the pulse rate function, you place your hands over sensors on the handlebars at the front. This console is not app compatible.
The sheer amount of feedback from owners of this bike is amazing. I had to do a double-take as the number is more than 10,000. Almost all of it is either 4 or 5 stars, with very few people unhappy with their purchase. Any equipment that requires assembly gets some grumbles. This folding bike is no exception. Some people found it super-easy to put together, others not… if you are one of those people that struggle, then arrange for some help before you hit ‘buy’.
Overall, the value for money was mentioned most. Some people got enthusiastic about this product. It is rare to see ‘brilliant’ even once, let alone multiple times.
As always, check the latest (newest) feedback of any home exercise bike before you buy. You just never know when a premium brand like this one will suddenly go to seed (unlikely for Exerpeutic, though I’m sure you get the idea).
The ideal user for these bikes is someone that is a worried that the cheap and cheerful folding bikes are too wobbly to be useful.
These bikes take the fold-away concept and build in some quality features. These start with the comfortable saddle, though the magnetic resistance, safe pedals, and adjustable setup for people of different heights are also worth a mention.
If the feedback is anything to go by, this bike is not simply good – it is ‘brilliant’.
