Product Review: Marcy Recumbent Bike
Price Range: $100 – $150
Who Would Buy This: Those on a budget shopping for a simple, lightweight recumbent bike.
- The Marcy NS1003R Recumbent Bike has a length of 30.5-inches and a height of 11-inches so it has a small enough footprint to fit inside rooms which are low on space. Its lightweight of 56.5 lbs makes it easy to move out of its storage area when the time comes to use it.
- The bike frame tubing is constructed of heavy-duty 14-gauge steel which is powder coated, so it’s robust enough to withstand the rigor of regular daily use even if many of your family members want to work out.
- Getting on the bike is quick and easy thanks to the step-through frame design which eliminates any hassle of stepping over a high frame.
- Impex Fitness hasn’t skimped on comfort features despite the low cost of this bike. The handlebars and side assist bars are foam-covered to make them comfortable to hold whilst exercising. Likewise, the adjustable bucket seat was built with high-density foam and has a smooth vinyl cover for extra comfort.
- A total of eight resistance levels are available so you can tailor the difficulty of the workout to your personal requirements depending on the challenge you desire.
- Workout data is tracked on a basic computer console which is very easy to operate. Metrics shown include distance, speed, time, burned calories, odometer.
- Most people found that the seat isn’t comfortable to sit on for longer periods, therefore we recommend keeping a small pillow at hand.
- Due to the limited adjustability and the distance between the seat and peddles, the bike isn’t suitable for people who are 5 ft 2″ or shorter.
Guarantee: 2-year limited warranty.
