I recently wrote this article about some of the best spinning bikes that you can buy in 2014 in terms of overall value for money, and so today I thought it would be a good idea to talk about some of the best recumbent exercise bikes that you might want to consider buying.

Recumbent exercise bikes are ideal for those people who want to enjoy the benefits of a cardiovascular workout, ie toning, weight loss, fitness, etc, but want to work out in a much more relaxed position.

They can also help those people who have some kind of back problems as well because it can be really uncomfortable using an ordinary exercise bike, whereas these ones all have back rests.

So what are the most popular recumbent exercise bikes right now in 2014?

Well the one that has been topping the best-seller list for many months now is of course the Exerpeutic 900XL Recumbent Exercise Bike With Pulse.

I’m sure one of the reasons why this particular model is so popular is because it is one of the cheapest recumbent bikes on the market, but it does seem to stand up as a quality bike that delivers a really good workout if you read all of the customer reviews.

This one offers 8 levels of resistance to give you a varied and challenging workout, and includes an onboard display unit that indicates time, speed, distance, calories and pulse. Plus it also has an oversized padded seat and back rest for maximum comfort.

Another recumbent bicycle that is proving to be very popular with home fitness enthusiasts is the Schwinn 270 Recumbent Bike.

Whilst the Exerpeutic model above is quite a basic model, this particular model is a slightly more advanced machine and boasts a lot more features.

For instance, it has things such as a USB port, a 3-speed cooling fan, a media tray and built-in speakers, as well as an oversized 2-window computer display with a data export facility.

It also offers 25 levels of resistance and 29 workout programs, including 12 course profiles, which means that it can challenge even the most fittest of athletes, and is said to be smooth and very quiet in operation.

Finally if your budget can’t quite stretch this far, you might want to consider another top-selling model from Schwinn – the Schwinn 230 Recumbent Bike.

This one is a little cheaper than the one above, but is still a mightily impressive machine that is ideal for home use because it has 20 levels of magnetic resistance, 22 workout programs and many of the same add-ons as the 270 model, such as a cooling fan, a media tray, a USB port, built-in speakers, etc.

It has also received a lot of positive customer reviews, like the other two machines listed above, and is said to be very well-made with a wide range of workout options and some nice extras that more than justify its current price.
