This is a simple budget exercise bike which has had some solid good feedback from buyers at amazon.co.uk. Sure, the spec is not up there with the £400+ models , however this bike will function well at is ideal for getting started with home fitness! The flywheel ensures smooth motion without making a lot of noise. Many users have been surprised just how quiet it is and have reported being able to watch TV over the noise too.
The Olympic 2000 foldable exercise bike does come with a LCD display. This has a built in pulse sensor (the monitors for this are in the handlebars), as well as time spent cycling, distance covered, calories burned and speed. The handlebars are adjustable height, which should help you find the most comfortable biking position. The saddle is advertised as ‘extra padded’, though if you prefer you can buy an even more comfortable add-on saddle (like this one)
It comes in a wide range of colours, folds away almost in half compared to the in-use size, so storage becomes very straightforward. The 8 levels of resistance offer a good workout to a variety of users. The machine is very beginner friendly though and will ease you into an exercise routine.
It never ceases to amaze me how divisive the topic of how easy it is to put together can get in the comments! The consensus is that this is a simple 15 minute task. The frame is already completed, so you only need to add the supports, pedals and so on. Some people struggled though most reported this was easy. Of course in the < £100 price bracket you should not expect gym quality, though overall the quality did get some praise. Most people found the bike quiet, though there are a couple of reports of ‘clanks’. For the price range, 4 stars overall is excellent.
