Although I do own a bicycle and try to use it regularly, I find that stationary bikes offer a whole new convenience. I can start a workout within minutes and cut it short at any time, which can mesh well with a busy and sporadic schedule.
The Ultrasport Exercise Bike F-Bike is an excellent piece of equipment that will help you achieve your cycling goals, and with an affordable price it could be a valuable addition to your home.

A cycling routine is extremely easy to implement into everyday life; as long as you’ve got a bike there’s no gym membership required.
Cycling offers the following benefits:
- More strength, tone, and stamina
- Very little stress on joints
- Improves cardiovascular health and lung capacity
- Increases coordination/neuromuscular activity
- Improved circulation
- Stress reduction
Aside from the fresh air and scenery, owning a stationary bike can provide you with all the benefits of owning a bicycle. I find this static bike trainer perfect to be able to exercise in the comfort of my own home, and many of my friends mention that they hate going to the gym and working out in front of people.
The LCD display between the handlebars keeps you informed of your heart-rate (by use of the hand pulse sensors), distance traveled (hypothetically of course!), speed, time spent, and calories burned. While getting back into cycling, the 8 different resistance settings really allowed me to control progress at my own pace, and still offered an excellent exercise bike workout. Remember, no matter how hard you’re going you’re still lapping everyone who is sitting on the couch.
After using this bike long periods of time, I noticed the seat becomes very uncomfortable, but I attached a gel seat that I had lying around and it works wonders. Some exercise bikes can rattle or jerk around while in use, but this one seems to be extremely stable and provides smooth action.
The Ultrasport F-Bike exercise bike is extremely quiet, there is some noise from the belt which can be expected, but it’s silent enough for use in an apartment without alerting the neighbors (keep in mind that when the tension is set to the highest setting it does cause some noise). Furthermore, the foldable exercise bike design allows you to fold it up by removing just a single pin, so if you’re short on space this exercise bike won’t be an issue.
I found that this sturdy and long lasting exercise bike came for a very reasonable price. The only real problem I ran into was the uncomfortable seat, which can easily be fixed with a gel seat add-on. I noticed that there is no Ultrasport exercise bike – F-bike manual, however this did not pose a problem as the set-up is extremely easy. Overall I think it’s a great buy for anyone looking to start exercising or continue an existing cycling routine in the convenience of their own home.
