Goplus Upright Stationary Exercise Bike
This is a simple yet solid vertical stationary exercise bike for indoor use by GoPlus, for aerobic- cardiovascular workout without leaving your home or office. The benefits of a cardio workout include increasing your heart rate, burning calories and fat, losing weight, getting and keeping in good shape by developing leaner muscles overall.
When you ride a bike like the GoPlus you will not be just working your legs or wherever you feel the pain. The weight loss or the change in your shape will be observed in your overall body- upper, lower and core or abdominals. It is offered at a very reasonable price and what you get is an upright exercise bike with a basic design that does the job. The LCD panel is included and also has a very simple design with just a blue button, which makes it easy to use.
You can keep track of your progress with the ordinary indicators of calories, distance, speed, time and scan that ensures the four main indicators are shown one by one without you pressing the button. The pedals seem fine for a low-cost bike and even include the foot straps. The padded seat is large enough and can be adjusted for height between 26 and 32 inches (the height of the seat from the ground to the seat level) to fit different people’s height and body shapes.
There is a resistance knob just below the LCD panel at the front so you can adjust your level of difficulty. The frame is sturdy steel that can have a user weight up to 264 pounds, handlebars are foam padded for your comfort and the LCD panel is made of ABS material.
You can choose either the white and blue or white and purple and they cost the same at the time of this review. GoPlus Exercise Bike is easy to assemble with the simple instructions in the box, weighs only 22 pounds and measures 27.5 x 18 x 40 inches. Please note that this compact bike is suitable for use at home, office or dorm for personal use and not in fitness centers/gyms by many people every day.
You do not need to worry about how stable it is, though, it will withstand daily use by one or two people. But please just make sure you don’t weigh more than 250-260 pounds. It doesn’t have a folding design and no transportation wheels as far as we can tell from product photos and info but with just a 22 lb. weight, you do not need to worry too much.
Almost any adult can lift it easily for relocation and storage in a more convenient spot. Also, the seat is not super comfortable. As long as your expectations are not very high, given that you can’t get a commercial grade gym bike with the bells and whistles, this should be good enough for burning calories and keep fit at home. If you are on a budget, this is great value for the dollar and the customer reviews are mostly positive.
