Features of the Marcy Foldable Exercise Bike
Each of the features present on this bike work to enhance your workout experience while keeping you comfortable at the same time. Our team tested this bike for several hours so that we can provide the following list of features to help with your purchase decision.
One of the most attractive features of this bike is its ability to fold up and easily store away in a separate location when not in use. The compact design element does not interfere with the level of quality that you receive when opening the bike in preparation for a workout. That design also works to give the bike a unique cardio style appearance that does not detract from the surrounding decor of any room in your home.
You need to have a bike that tracks your progress from one workout to the next so that you know if slight changes are necessary to achieve the results you desire. The bike highlights this element by providing a computer monitoring system in the center console, between the handlebars. You can track the distance that you travel, how fast you travel and the total time you spend working out. The computer system also allows you to keep an eye on the number of calories that you burn so you know whether or not the workout session is effective.
You can treat the indoor bike workout in the same manner as an outdoor workout with the resistance training feature on this bike. There are resistance settings that simulate mountain terrains and then easily allow you to switch to a flat road setting at the touch of a button. Having the ability to switch between resistance settings keeps you from losing interest in your workouts. It energizes you to keep the bike riding workout as part of your daily routine.
One thing you look for when riding a bike is the ability to have a safe, sturdy ride regardless of how hard you hit the pedals. The bike does not disappoint and stands ready to handle the force of any pedal strength you place on the bike. There is 14 gauge steel running through the central area of the bike that gives it the strength necessary to help you have the type of workout you desire.
