Exercise Bikes

Exercise Bikes

An exercise bike is an excellent addition to your home gym and can provide exercisers at all fitness levels with a robust cardio workout. Exercise bikes offer many unique benefits, including a low-impact, safe workout. This makes stationary bikes a great option for older adults, those recovering from an injury, or anyone who wants to take care of their joints.

Exercising on a stationary bike will improve your cardiovascular health and aerobic capacity. Dial up the intensity to tone your calves, quads, and glutes. Before you know it, your legs will be stronger than ever. At Marcy, we offer a wide variety of exercise bikes for sale. Take a look at our selection to find the best exercise bike for you.

Stationary Exercise Bikes

At Marcy our selection of exercise bikes for sale gives you lots of different features and price points to choose from. Some of our most popular bikes include:

  • Folding Exercise Bikes: Love the idea of having an exercise bike at home but don’t want a big machine taking up half a room? Our selection of folding exercise bikes, including the Marcy NS-652, offer you the best of both worlds. These sleek machines give you all the quad-burning bliss of the best bike workout, and when you’re done, fold them up and put them into a closet or tuck them into a corner.
  • Recumbent Exercise Bikes: Recumbent exercise bikes, like the Marcy ME -709, are a great choice for exercisers who prefer more back support and stability during their workout. These types of bikes have a chair-like seat with a back support. With seats closer to the ground, recumbent exercise bikes help minimize strain on your legs.
  • Fan Exercise Bikes: Fan exercise bikes are similar to traditional stationary exercise bikes with fan-powered resistance. The faster you pedal, the faster the fan spins, which increases resistance. Fan exercise bikes, like the Marcy AIR-1, offer an intense and effective cardio workout propelled by your own inner drive. Additionally, most fan bikes also include moving handle bars that allow you to activate your shoulders, chest, and triceps as you bike.
  • Upright Exercise Bikes: Recreate the experience of riding a road bike in your home with an upright bike, like the Marcy ME-708. Many of these models use magnetic resistance to increase or decrease the difficulty of each ride. The seats tend to be more comfortable than your average exercise bike, and you don’t need to crouch forward in the same way that you would on an exercise training bike.
  • Portable Mini Cycles: You spend eight or more hours a day at work. Wouldn’t it be great if you could break up your day and revive your flagging energy with a short workout rather than gulping another caffeine drink? Our portable mini cycles, including the Marcy NS-912, are your answer. These affordable exercise machines can be placed unobtrusively under your desk, allowing you to pedal while you work, are on a conference call, or find yourself brainstorming your next great project. Little bouts of exercise during the day using a portable mini cycle may improve your focus, energy, and productivity.

Most exercise bikes allow you to increase or decrease the resistance, so you get exactly the workout you desire. Lower resistance settings help you improve your cardio stamina, while higher resistance tones your lower body. Many Marcy exercise bikes also include display panels that allow you to monitor your time and distance or set pre-programmed workouts.

This is a lightweight unit with a very small footprint. It is definitely for the residential user who has limited space for their exercise equipment.

All our reviews are independent of any manufacturers or advertisers and if you buy anything through our posts we may get a small share of the sale.


This upright exercise bike is equipped with a magnetic resistance system the delivers a fairly smooth and even pedal action.

This system also delivers an amazingly quiet, almost perfectly silent ride. That is, initially. With frequent use, especially by larger riders, the hardware tends to work loose and in the creaks, squeaks, and moans begin.

A little adjusting with the handy-dandy screwdriver will remedy the problem.

Designed for Burning Calories, Not Cycling

It features eight levels of preset resistance so that users of varying levels of health can find the resistance appropriate for them.

If burning calories is your only concern then this could possibly be the unit for you.

For those just looking to burn some calories and get low-level cardiovascular workouts in the large console display is a great tool for tracking the time, speed, calories expended, and distance of the ride.

No Cycling Motion Here, Just Vertical Pump

Even with its counterbalanced panels and magnetic resistance system it would be unfair to attempt to compare this bike’s ride without of a similarly-priced indoor bike.

Features and Specs

This unit delivers the expected up-and-down pedal action consistent with standard exercise bikes. If you’re looking for an indoor experience that equates to authentic outdoor road cycling you can skip this unit.

Transport wheels are attached to make rolling this unit from room to room easy. Because it is so light, weighing in at only 43 pounds overall, most anyone can move this unit with little effort.

This unit measures: 31.5 x 48.7 5 x 18 inches (W x H x D). It’s small enough to fit in a corner and storage closet. Shipping weight is about 45 pounds.

Great for kids and smaller riders, this unit adjusts down quite easily. It is probably not the best choice for riders over 6 feet tall.

Designed for Specific Body Types

Another awkward downside for this product is that the handlebars seem to be further away from the seat then they should be. It’s almost as if this bike was designed for someone with freakishly long arms.

This may cause a problem for people with back problems due to having to stretch forward to reach the handlebars. It certainly is problematic for people with short arms.

If someone were asking for my opinion I would have to say that unless your space is extremely limited, a real stationary bike would probably be a much better alternative.

Saddle Upgrade Advised

The biggest downside for this Marcy product is seat comfort. Users consistently reported that after 30 minute rides experienced moderate to substantial discomfort.

The good news about saddle discomfort is that it is completely replaceable with the standard saddle of your choice. It’s a fairly straightforward and easy.

Some of this may be due to the fact that the standard exercise bike delivers a bounce here, up-and-down pedal action which promotes a vertical bounce in the torso as well. Too much of this bounce will adversely affect the spine and buttocks.

Despite its size it is well constructed and, according to the manual, able to accommodate a writer of up to 300 pounds. Keep in mind that this is a very small bike and if you weigh over 200 pounds mount this unit with extreme caution.

Also, the issues of seat discomfort, handlebar overreach, and vertical pedal action could place undue stress on an overweight person. The pedal action will definitely deliver impact to knees and ankles and the handlebar overreach could result in an unbalanced bike resulting in a fall and serious injury. Again, a sturdy indoor bike designed to accommodate larger users would be the wiser choice.

This unit earns a rating of three stars.

Summary Reviewer Mike H.Review Date 2014-12-02 Reviewed Item Marcy Upright Mag Cycle Author Rating 3

Since it has eight present resistance levels, you can increase the intensity as you’re working out to burn more calories and then decrease it to cool down as your session ends. Based on some positive reviews, the bike is very quiet, so if you’re watching television or listening to music, you will easily hear it.

Many shorter reviewers found the bike to be just the right size for them because they could sit upright comfortably during their workouts. The taller reviewers found it to be comfortable as well since the seat is adjustable to fit someone of their height.

What We Didn’t Like

Although the seat serves its purpose, many users found it to be uncomfortable because it doesn’t have sufficient padding. While the issue is correctable by adding a pad to the seat, it would be more convenient if improvements were made to the seat, so it has more padding already on it.

While the frame of the bike is built to be sturdy, the casing is made from plastic, which can crack or break. Of course, a plastic casing makes the bike lighter and easier to transport from one room to another or across a room to keep it out of the way while it isn’t in use.

The resistance doesn’t always transition smoothly from one level to the next, which can make working out on the bike harder to do. Sometimes the pedaling motions are jerky, which can disrupt the rhythm of the user during their workout.

While there is a knob to change resistance levels, it would be easier to switch between levels at the touch of a button.

Buying Advice

If you’re looking for a simple exercise bike to help you lose weight, tone muscles, or stay in shape, then the Marcy Upright Exercise Bike ME-708 is a good choice. It provides the basic information you need to track the progress toward your fitness goals, like calories burned and the distance you’ve ridden.

The Good

The magnetic resistance system provides a quiet and considerably smooth workout. It is important to add that magnetic resistance produce premium visible results in a minimal amount of time. The Mag Cycle offers an effective workout without causing strain and damage to the muscles.

The 8 preset resistance levels allow the user to adjust tension levels to a desirable position. In most cases, beginners start on a lower resistance level and gradually increase the level as strength is developed. Although many users find the first tension level light, this resistance level offers an adequate warm-up.

The easy to read LCD screen gives users the ability to monitor relevant workout-related data. This highly visible LCD screen displays distance traveled, calories burned, speed, and workout time. In some instances, this useful feature acts as a motivational tool for dedicated cyclists.

The ease of use and comfort of the Marcy Upright ME-708 is a beneficial aspect of the workout cycle. This is an intuitive cycle that is used by both beginners and experts without any major issues. Moreover, prior experience is not required to begin using the cycle. The Marcy Upright is ideal for extended training sessions that require longer cycling periods. The cycle incorporates an exceptionally comfortable seat that is adequately padded with soft foam to contour to the shape of the body shape. The seat is vertically adjustable and offers various heights depending on the individual.

It is important to add that the handlebars are thickly textured. The handlebars are easy to grip and do not cause soreness or blisters during workouts. Additionally, the handlebars are designed to prevent the hands from slipping during sweaty workouts. The counterbalanced pedals are weighted and accommodate various shoe sizes. The pedals are considerably comfortable and offer a stable grip. The high-quality frame and steel tubing allow the cycle to remain stable during vigorous training sessions.

The Bad

Although this is premium workout cycle, there are a few notable drawbacks. Some users complain the LCD screen needs some improvement. Users complain the screen is slightly too small and the font requires a size increase. The display is difficult to read from a distance. In some cases, users had to pause the workout to monitor progress. Expensive cycles such as The Marcy Club Revolution and The Pro-Form SP 300 offer innovative features such as a backlight and increased comfort. Moreover, the lack of a backlight feature on The Marcy Upright causes difficulty reading the display in poor lighting conditions.

Although it was not a major complaint, some users were dissatisfied with the comfort level of the padded seat. Several users suggest the seat is too tough and slightly uncomfortable. However, this issue typically dissipated with consistent use or a couple of days of training. This generally provided enough time for the seat to adjust to the shape of the body. Another alleged drawback was a result of a defective pedal; however, this was primarily a result of a defect during the assembly process.

The Verdict

Overall, The Marcy Upright Mag Cycle is a quality workout cycle for a machine in its price range. This cycle is a valuable investment for any user that desires to improve cardiovascular training without breaking the bank. Although more expensive options such as The Marcy Club Revolution offer more resistance, this model is ideal for losing weight on a machine in this price range. The Marcy Upright is considerably larger than many other models; however, it offers visible results in a minimal period of time. This cycle is protected with a 2 year limited warranty and is designed using a strong frame. The cycle offers a comfortable workout and an easy to use process. This cycle is beneficial for any user that desires to lose weight without damaging or straining the muscles.
