The Exerpeutic 900Xl Extended Capacity Recumbent Bike with Pulse is an extremely affordable starter bike, especially considering the high level of construction offered in this unit. As we’re sure you can imagine, at this price point, with the exception of the display, there isn’t much else in the way of features. The recumbent bike is perfect for those who are recovering from a back injury or prefer more comfort in their workouts. This bike, although an economy model, offers an eight level tension system to add enough range to your workout experience while still challenging you. This model comes equipped with an onboard computer that is large enough to be very easy to read as well as tracking everything you could want to know including distances, speed, pulse rate and calories burned.
This reviewer has been riding recumbent bikes for over seven years, including some with every convenience and feature known to man. This machine is simple to use and perfect for someone just starting out with a recumbent bike. It is easy to assemble and performs perfectly. It is solidly built and you will feel very safe using it. The magnetic tensioning system ranges from the lightest to the most extreme load. If you do not want fancy pre-programmed workout routines, the computer with which this bike is equipped has enough of the basics – distance, speed, pulse rate, calories burned – to keep you engaged for some time. Furthermore, this piece of equipment is very quiet. The 3-4 range on the tensioner is an excellent and challenging workout. The on-board computer is not backlit, but is still very easy to see because the display itself is so large. The seating is adjustable for a variety of heights and will still be comfortable to use. This bike provides an enjoyable workout, appears to be very reliable and is certainly quiet. This bike is probably the best quality to price ratio you will find in the marketplace.
