Our top exercise bike picks
Key to a quality home exercise bike is a flywheel weighing at least 7 kg. This should make riding the bike a far smoother and quieter experience.
The obvious downside of a hefty flywheel? It makes the bike far harder to move around.
So, we’ve picked out a couple of options for anyone looking for a simple, good quality bike that won’t take up too much room and is easy to stow away.
Find out a bit more about our top picks below.
