Should I spend £1200 on a bike?

What about an airdyne?

You could get a decent treadmill for that price! :open_mouth:

A treadmill will burn more calories than a bike, plus it is better for posture. You could do incline walking and a slow to medium pace for an hour daily.

In my opinion it is too much for a non professional.

I see myself not using it to be honest , my most used equipment at the gym was the rowing machine but for space I can’t have that.

No. Buy a bike for like 500 bucks and buy a trainer for 200 bucks. Then you have a working bike and an exercise bike

I was looking for an exercise bike.

Looking at this one…

What puts me off is that I want to try it out before purchasing as I have hip problems, On my mountain bike no issues with hip but I tried the day centres exercise bike with the pedals move forward then then straight postion and it hurts my hip.

I’m between Nottingham and Lincoln, I will try and find a brick and mortar place to purchase one from so I can try it. Its a lot of money and hard to spend back if got wrong,

Is the bike one of those Peloton units? Apparently having the bike plus the app lets you “cycle” with others even from your own home alone and it goes a fair way towards replacing the health club experience. One of my friends very much enjoys his and it was a good investment in his case. He’s also a professional and can afford it, which doesn’t hurt.

No that one is around £2000 which is way too much for a bike

I had a look at the cyclo go from that site which I’m keen on.

It depends on how big a part of your life it is. When I go shooting I’m carrying around a $50,000 backpack full of camera bodies and lenses.
