Review: This gold edition Exerpeutic folding upright exercise bike is the top of the line folding bike. It can hold up to 400 lbs, much more than the competition, and more than other Exerpeutic models too!
It has 20 percent more steel than other models, which is why it’s so tough. It has 8 levels of magnetic resistance and an extra wide, comfy seat, which not all folding bikes have, sorry to say.
It also has a wide U shaped base so you feel secure, not like you are going to tip over.
400 lb weight capacity.
Heavy duty model, uses more steel in the frame.
Adjustable height for short and tall folks alike.
The display is clunky.
A big and tall riders folding bike that will not break the bank.
BulbHead Slim Cycle 2-in-1 Folding Stationary Bike
Review: The BulbHead slim cycle folding bike is sturdy, without being too heavy to move out of the way when you are done. It holds a generous 300 lbs and the seat is 11 inches wide and adjusts height, and is comfortable for most riders.
The slim cycle is a low impact ride that fits all size users and the handles to the side of the seat make it easier to get on and off.
Includes built in resistance bands.
8 levels of magnetic resistance.
Integrated tablet holder.
This bike favors taller riders, at least over 5’ 5”.

Review: Light and portable, quiet to use, what’s not to love? You can sit this bike in front of the TV, watch your favorite show and get your exercise all at the same time. It is a breeze to fold and stow away too!
This bike is accessible, great for short folks, with a wide comfy seat, and pedals you can reach!
Very quiet and takes up very little space – really compact.
Ideal for short folks.
Wide well-padded seat.
Beware: Limited to those under 5’9” and under 220 lbs.
Easily the best folding exercise bike for a short or petite person.
Review: This high quality Exerpeutic folding bike is less expensive than the top of the line gold model Exerpeutic, with a slightly lower but still respectable 300 lbs weight limit that exceeds many others out there.
This model features and extra wide, well-cushioned seat, a slot to hold your remote, and controls built into the handle.
All you need to do is put on your favorite TV series, start pedaling, and you are set.
Ample 300 lb weight capacity.
Adjustable for folks between 5’3” to 6”1”.
8 Levels of magnetic resistance to give yourself a challenge.
Some find the seat too wide, and you can’t change it out.
Hands down, the best folding exercise bike for 2021. Great price, great reputation, great bike.
Review: I love that this bike has 16 levels of magnetic resistance and a seat that does not leave your bum numb even if you sit on it all day binge watching Amazon Prime shows.
That said, this bike is for riders under 5’9” and below 260 lbs.
So petite people, listen up! This is your bike.
It is available in pink or black, folds up and has wheels so you can hide it away when you need to and the pedals cranks are designed with a slight curve so you are not clipping your heels if you are speed pedaling. That’s a nice touch!
Wide comfy seat.
Super quiet, will not overpower the TV.
Curved pedal cranks prevent heel clipping.
Only for those under 5’ 9”” and 260 lbs.
Best exercise bike for small spaces and petite riders.

Review: The Pexmor folding bike has several extras other bikes don’t. To start with it has a seat back so you can sit up or lean back. It also has resistance bands so your arms are not neglected during your workout.
The LCD screen is visible in dark or lighted conditions and the computer rotates thru the display instead of you having to push a button to change the data being displayed, which not all bikes do.
