What We Like About The Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike

The Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike does have some neat features that we do really like. What are these features?

One of the things that we do really like about the Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike is that it is very inexpensive, yet it still manages to provide you with magnetic resistance. This is quite impressive for such an inexpensive home recumbent bike. Magnetic tension is fantastic because it is very smooth and quiet so you can get an enjoyable ride and still hear the television in the background. Magnetic resistance is also ideal because the lack of moving and touching parts means that it experiences minimal wear and tear. While the Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike does only have 5 levels of resistance, you can easily select them with the adjustment dial.

Another thing that really stands out about the Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike is that it is very convenient and space friendly. The Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike is very compact and lightweight, making it easy to maneuver, keep in a small room, and move around whenever you want. Even better is that the Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike features a folding stand. Whenever the Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike is not in use, you can simply fold it down to size and store it in any closet. This is great for anybody who has limited space in their home.

The fact that the seat on the Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike is adjustable for height is yet another big bonus. This means that people of various sizes can use it with ease and comfort. The seat itself is built to be fairly comfortable, plus it has decent lumbar support, and alright padding too.

We like how the Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike comes with a stand for your media such as books or tablets. While it does not have any Bluetooth or speakers, being able to have a book or tablet in front of you is a big bonus for many people.

The Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike does come with a decent display and fitness tracking system. The easy to use computer displays things such as time, distance, speed, calories, and RPM too. It may not be the most comprehensive tracking system, but it works just fine.

What We Don’t Like About The Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike

As always, there are a couple of things that we do not really like about the Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike, so what are they?

We don’t really like how the Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike only has 5 levels of resistance. While this may be fine for beginners, it will definitely not provide a more seasoned biker with an adequate challenge.

While the Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike is lightweight, small, and has a strong steel frame, the shape of it makes it somewhat wobbly and unstable. The lightweight factor and its limited size are both an advantage and disadvantage.

Alternatives To The Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike

To give you a point of comparison between different entry level models, let’s talk about a couple of other recumbent exercise bikes that you can check out if you like.

Marcy ME 709 Recumbent Exercise Bike

This model by Marcy is just a little bit more expensive than the Ancheer Recumbent Bike, but the quality does match the price. The Marcy ME 709 Recumbent Bike has a higher weight limit, a stronger frame, and is more stable too. There is also the fact that the Marcy has several more resistance levels than the Ancheer Recumbent Bike. On the other hand, the Ancheer Recumbent bike is much lighter and space friendly, plus it folds in half for easy storage. Both make for good bikes, but one is more about getting a good cardio workout and the other is oriented more towards being space friendly and convenient.

Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RB1117 Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike

This model is actually very similar to the Ancheer model reviewed above, which is quite accurately reflected in the price of it. Both cost about the same amount of money. The big difference between the two is that the Sunny Health & Fitness model has 8 levels of resistance, whereas the Ancheer model only has 5. Both of these items have an adjustable seat, both have decent cushioning, and both come with a fairly decent fitness tracking display. Both of these items fold down in half and are lightweight, compact, and easy to maneuver. If you are looking for a space friendly home recumbent bike, both of these models make for good options.

Final Thoughts On The Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike

The Ancheer Folding Recumbent Exercise Bike is definitely a good model to consider for beginners. It is very lightweight, small, and it folds down for easy storage too. It comes with a reliable magnetic resistance system, a good computer, an adjustable seat, and more. While it is not the best bike for advanced fitness levels, it is great for people who want a moderate workout on a daily basis without the trouble of having a huge piece of equipment taking up room.
