Exercise Bike Description

  • This next exercise bike would certainly be one of our favourites and it’s the IM Fitness Racer Exercise Bike and the price level is a lot lower than we expected so it deserves serious consideration before you make your final decision. The frame design is superb and is made with heavy duty materials to support heavier weights up to 19 stone weight or 120kg. It includes an impressive 18kg flywheel, a multi-function tracking console and the tension is easily controlled with a manual tension knob – right for more tension and left for less tension.
  • To keep track of your heart rate, there are the pulse sensors on the handlebars and the mini console reports and tracks on speeds, times, scans, distances, pulse rates and calories – all the basic parameters that you would need. Stock levels tend to be quite good and deliveries from Shenstone are usually completed in a few short days depending on how busy the couriers services are.

Key Features

Foldable for easy storage - Lightweight frame design

Made with stainless steel

Max weight guide 110kg - 8 levels of resistance

Mini tracking console

Seat is height adjustable

Handlebar Pulse sensors

Exercise Bike Description

  • If you have small living spaces, then you should check out the foldable Ultrasport Basics Exercise Bike which takes up minimum space and it can be stored away tightly and neatly after use. This bike is not for the intensive athletes but rather for people looking to improve their fitness, casual users and people looking to get in some quick exercises during the course of their busy weeks. At times it can be on sale for around £100 and in most cases you should be able to get your hands on it for less than £120 when seen at the time of this review.
  • This frame is also lightweight in design at only 14kg but it is still robust enough to cater for people up to 110kg in weight. It can help to build you thigh and calf muscles, improve your stamina and fitness and help your overall well-being and circulatory system. The saddle is height adjustable, the saddle is basic but effective nonetheless and there is the tension control knob in the front centre – clockwise for more tension and anti-clockwise for less tension.
  • Small batteries are needed to power the mini console tracking screen for distances, times, pulses, calories and speed and you will be surprised how well it can be folded – it can be folded easily and placed under the bed when not in use (just remember to take it out each week!). It’s a very basic exercise bike and the main advantage here is the foldability and the really low price point.

  1. Just seen this and as I have 2 minutes to spare, I would like to express my feedback from this review. This is an excellent range I must say it shows me all the best and cheapest exercise bikes that I can purchase in the UK. That video is far too intense for me at the moment, maybe in a few weeks time when I get my fitness levels improved somewhat. My partner and I just came across this cheap list and wanted to express our feedback. We would only ever shop in a Sports shop for fitness exercise bikes and would have never have thought to look the brands and prices from Amazon or Argos, didn’t realise they had prices or brands as good as these. We can only fit a folding bike in our apartment so our preferences would be the Roger black, the Opti folding or the Ultrasport folding bikes here and the Opti wins out here for us based on having the lowest price. Thanks for your efforts of putting this page together, you have saved me lots of time and also provided a good set of information to compare the cheapest prices 

    • That’s great feedback and many thanks for taking the time to stop by and share your experiences, it is greatly appreciated by the wider community. Take care, Peter

  2. I have used Opti brand before for fitness gear so I would definitely prefer the bikes under that brand and the fact that they give so low prices is a major plus so they are the ones that I would recommend or suggest, this brand has never let me down before and the folding magnetic has received several good reviews from what I have seen elsewhere

  3. I really like how this review of cheap bikes also includes the information you need so I appreciate the additional information provided here.  I have always wanted a exercise bike but price was always against me but you have provided some great options here for me to consider that are affordable particularly the Lonsdale bike which looks like a great bargain altogether

  4. Weightloss bikes i know are very effective in losing weight and it also helps in the overall health as well. Although top of the range exercise bikes are worth the money, they might be too expensive for the average person. I got a cheap one from ebay but had to throw it in the bin after a week hence the reason why I am online searching again, these brands look good and trustworthy, the only thing I would insist on is a minimum 12 month warranty as back up which I know for certain Roger Black offers

  5. Didn’t realise Argos stocked such low priced Exercise bikes, that is great to know so thank you for pointing it out, I’m not looking for a cheap cheap bike – I prefer to spend a slight bit more as I need it to last several years.  I literally love the look of the V Fit Fit Folding Magnetic X Bike – it looks like a powerful bike so that is my preferred option but the Roger black is a close second.  I will sharing your link here in our fitness group forum who also are looking for value on a on-going basis as there is money to be saved here so thanks for doing your research

    • You are more than welcome and many thanks for taking the time to stop by and for sharing our links – it is greatly appreciated, Regards, Peter

  6. Well, let me say I love those V Fit bikes for exercising as they are cheap and they offer tremendous value and the brand is quite good as I have bought other items under this V Fit brand before and they serve me quite well. I was using a brand new bike made in China and it doesn’t work well at all, more problems that it is worth. One major reason why I love the Folding V Fit bike is that space is extremely tight where I live and being able to fold it up when finished is a major plus so that is the one that stands out for me

  7. Thanks for this review for the best value bikes for exercising. With this review I should be able to budget my money well and get a cheap exercise bike for my home gym. I’ll personally love to have the Opti manual Exercise bike as it has cool features and a price of less than £70, that is a steal in my opinion and its good idea that the batteries are included which is one less thing to worry about

  8. Nice review on cheap exercise bikes in the UK. Of course I would like to have one of these bikes to carry on my daily exercise to keep my body fit. I checked through all the specifications and these prices of the bikes you mentioned, i think based on cost wise I am more interested in the Lonsdale Exercise Bike. It’s specifications are okay by me but I will like to know if there is free shipping or if not  – what is the fee for shipping? Thanks alot. 

    • Hi, the delivery charges that normally apply for the standard deliveries from them is £4.99, sometimes more – hope that helps, Regards, Peter
