    I'm thinking of getting an exercise bike.

    Found a good deal on a older model.

    Hope it doesn't become a clothes rack.

    Have you tried an exercise bike?
    Make sure you like it first. It can be very boring at home.
    I brought on to use after my surgery and didn't like it at all.
    I would also check Craigslist people buy them all the time and never use them so you can get a great deal. Mine was brand new from Craigslist.

    I also had an elliptical machine that became a clothes rack. Put that one the side of the road for someone too take.

    I have an elliptical, it's been months since it was used bc it's boring. I'd rather be outside myself. Too bad it's not safe to exercise out doors...

    I hate treadmills. Can't do ellipticals.

    I used a bike years ago and did well with it.

    Found a good deal on an older model.

    I think I'll be ok watching tv and riding.

    I'm not going to a gym and need something at home.

    I have two exercise bikes - an upright and a recumbent. I like both and the difference in the exercise between the two provides a change of pace. The recumbent is a lot easier on your bum and your back, and it's also far less intense than an upright. A good starting point for anyone who's not in condition as of yet.

    I can see people's point in saying that it can be boring. To avoid that issue I personally watch random crap on Netflix or I'll close my eyes put on some music with a good beat and go with the flow.

    I have a recumbent exercise bike and it is great for times when I cannot ride. Like the other posters say, it can be boring. Also like them I find that a good tv show or other forms of entertainment can keep your mind occupied while you exercise.

    I have a recline bike and an eliptical. Rotate between the two. I have the eliptical pointed towards the tv. 40 min on one music and staring at the walk sucks. Rigged up a way to hold my phone with a gorilla pod on my bike to watch Netflix.
