Stationary bicycles are exercise devices that resemble the mechanisms and fitness purposes of standard bicycles. However, this equipment is held in position by a vertical stand that keeps the bicycle grounded and the user safe and stable.
This device does not have wheels, but there may be settings on the equipment to indicate resistance levels for the pedals. Resistance mechanisms within the bike’s manufacturing may include magnets, fans, or friction devices.
Some models include handlebars for more stability to riders and potentially, upper body fitness as well. Some models may also include a backward pedaling option to exercise antagonist’s muscles, muscles not exercised in forward pedaling.
