Staying healthy and keeping motivated doesn't have to mean spending up to $4,000 for a spinner bike with thousands of customized workouts and a built-in high-resolution data/entertainment screen. It's equally possible to get a good workout with a cheap exercise bike that costs less than $400, although suggests springing for a pricier model if you expect to ride more than five miles a day. Major players in the home exercise bikes market include Cybex, Healthrider, Kettler, LifeCycle, Nautilus, NordicTrack, Precor, ProForm, Schwinn, and Stamina.
Whether you're rehabilitating a sore knee, training for your next triathlon, or just starting out with an exercise or weight-loss regimen, a cheap exercise bike is a valuable addition to your home gym. Medical experts and trainers praise exercise bicycles, a.k.a. stationary or workout bikes, for their low-impact workout (gentle on joints) and ease of use. A cheap exercise bike is far less costly than a gym membership, and the convenience factor increases the chances you'll actually use it. An in-home exercise bike lets you fit in a 30-minute workout while watching your favorite TV show, saves you the bother and expense of special clothing or shoes needed for other forms of exercise, and frees you from worries about the weather. Better yet, some experts actually recommend an exercise bike that's cheap, particularly if you're a newbie and not sure whether you'll stick with it. The most important thing, they say, is to get up and get moving.

The type of resistance that most cheap exercise bikes offer is those that use a tension belt. The more advanced and expensive kinds of exercise bikes are those that use magnetic resistance. Tension belts have a tendency to break when the bike is overused or old or both. Magnetic resistance is much more smooth and durable, but it is almost twice the price of a bike that uses a tension belt.
