Marcy Recumbent Mag Cycle Review

Marcy Recumbent Mag CycleThe Marcy Recumbent Mag Cycle is one of the least expensive options for someone looking to purchase a recumbent exercise bike but still offers many of the same benefits of its more expensive counterparts. Weighing only 66 lbs and measuring 55 inches wide and 40 inches high it is light weight, compact and even has built in wheels for easy transport.

Despite being compact and inexpensive, it offers the standard computer console which allows you to track the calories you’ve burned, the distance you’ve traveled, the speed you are going and the duration of your workout during your session. It also offers adjustable straps on the pedals which are counterbalanced to make them easier to use.

This recumbent exercise bike is ideal for anyone who wants a great recumbent bike at a reasonable price. The bike offers enough features to provide everything you need for your workout while remaining lightweight and compact so as to easily fit into any room.

It is the perfect option if you are looking for a recumbent bike but want something small and quiet. It is also a great idea if you are looking for something a little more stylish thanks to its powder-coated finish.

Because it is so easy to move from one place to another, it is also an excellent option for someone who isn’t entirely sure where they want to set up their bike permanently. You can put the bike together in one room and move it to another room without any hassle at all.

Pros

The Marcy Recumbent Mag Cycle offers the same benefits offered by many of the other models on the market but at a much more affordable price. The stylish powder-coated finish and compact design make it fit perfectly into any room and the quiet operation means you can use it just about anywhere. This model offers a step through frame design which means mounting and dismounting is easy even.

This bike offers eight preset levels of tension so it is easy to find a workout level that will be comfortable for you regardless of your fitness level. This model features an adjustable seat so as to accommodate any body type which offers great benefits for just about anyone. The model is also exceptionally easy to install which is a great benefit it has over many of its contemporaries.

Cons

There are some disadvantages you should be aware of before deciding to purchase the bike. The biggest disadvantage is the lack of options in terms of resistance. Although eight preset levels are more than enough for most users, others may find it difficult to decide which preset is right for their needs.

Shorter individuals also might have difficulty using it although many will simply buy pedal extenders. Although it is an additional expense, the cost of the bike and the extenders is still much less that the cost of most other models offering the same features.

Summary

This is an excellent product at a great price. Shorter individuals or someone looking for more control over the tension level may find it better to go with another option.
