Used Stationary Bikes

Schwinn Active 10 UprightBasically there are two types of used stationary bikes that you can choose from: the upright stationary bikes and the recumbent stationary bikes. Upright stationary bikes typically looks similar to the outdoor bicycle, it has a grip handle and you can use the bike in a standing position. While recumbent stationary bikes has a backrest and legs are positioned in front, it is a more relaxed version of stationary bikes. Now there are arguments on which of the two is a better exercise equipment, basically in the end it comes down to personal preference on which stationary bikes to use. The best way to determine which one to choose is to ride the stationary bikes in your nearest fitness and sports shop before buying used stationary bikes online.

Another type of stationary bikes are called mini exercise bikes which is only composed of the pedal and magnetic resistance parts with no seat and handle bars; it is used while sitting on a chair.

Vashon Island Used Stationary Bikes

First of all, I would like to thank krissy for bringing this up, I'm truly grateful for this information. So what are the Vashon Island Used Stationary Bikes? Well aparently someone started leaving those used stationary bikes on the side of the road of Vashon Island. After some research I found out who started putting them; according to Seattle Times "The late Jim Smith started putting stationary bikes on this overlook along Dockton Road Southwest on Vashon Island. The view is of Tramp Harbor."

RealRyder Stationary Bikes Used as Bicycle Simulator

Although this has nothing to do with used stationary bikes, the product is so good that I had to at least write a short article about it. One of the most innovative stationary bikes used as bicycle simulator is the RealRyder stationary bikes. It has a unique, articulating frame that allows it to steer, lean, and feel like actual road bicycles. In fact RealRyder stationary bikes have been used in an outdoor bicycle competition due to bad weather.

This is probably one of the best stationary bikes in the market today, although Schwinn stationary bikes is also known to make one of the best, it has found a great competitor. The only problem with RealRyder is the price, it's not like one of those cheap exercise bikes, it comes with a price tag of a whopping $2,295. Also good luck in finding them used; I haven't seen one being sold as second hand as of this time of writing. This is probably one of the rarest used stationary bikes.
