This is a great mid-range recumbent bike option to go with. We have reviewed another model by Exerpeutic, the 900XL. Well, this one, the 2000, is like the upgraded version of the 900XL. This model has enough resistance for moderate and beginner fitness levels, it has a decent number of workout programs, it’s durable, and highly versatile too. It makes for a great mid-range option that won’t cost you too much for the value you get.

Warranty

Assembly

One thing that you will like about the Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike is that all of the major components already come assembled. You just need to put the big pieces together. That being said, it will take one person around 2 hours to complete the job, but less if you have a helping hand. The tools needed for assembly are included, but they are a little cumbersome, so you may want to use your own wrench and screwdriver. You can always choose to get in-home expert assembly for an extra cost. Here are the assembly instructions for this particular model.

What We Like About The Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike

There are a few features of the Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike that we really like, so let’s go over those in some detail right now.

One of the things that really stand out about the Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike is the Air Soft seat that it comes with. This seat is ergonomically designed to fit the shape of your back and provide you with adequate amounts of lumbar support. The real beauty about this seat is that it is a full 3.5 inches thick and is constructed out of individual air chambers. It is about as soft as any recumbent bike seat can get. Moreover, the Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike seat has a honeycomb mesh with a PVC covering which makes it very well ventilated. Your back and butt are not going to get hot or painful when using this recumbent bike.

Another thing that we like about the Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike is that it has 8 levels of magnetic resistance. The resistance can be easily controlled with the advanced digital LCD display for quick resistance changes. Moreover, the magnetic tension combined with the smooth crank system and transmission make the Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike a very quiet and smoothly operating piece of equipment. It’s quiet, smooth, and provides you with constant resistance.

We also like how the Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike comes with 6 different preset workout programs. These programs are ideal for helping you achieve your fitness goals. In terms of the display itself, it is a high-quality LCD display that is easy to read. It will keep track of things such as distance, time, speed, RPM, and calories burned. Even better is that it can also display your current heart rate when you are holding the heartbeat sensing handlebars. All in all, keeping track of your cardiovascular output is easy with the Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike. Of course, as the name implies, you can program the display and programs to fit your needs.

We also like how the Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike has elbow rests so your arms don’t get too tired while biking. Moreover, the seat bottom is very comfortable, plus the pedals are designed to be large and have good grip for a great recumbent bike ride.

We also like how the frame of the Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike features a step through design for easy mounting and dismounting. Also, the frame has a 300-pound weight capacity, which should be more than enough for most people. Plus, the frame includes leveling stabilizers to minimize movement and wobbling when using this machine.

What We Don’t Like About The Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike

There are a couple of notable issues with the Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike, so let’s just go over those real quick.

We don’t like how the Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike only has 8 levels of resistance and 6 workout programs. While this is more than some other mid-range and entry level models have, for the price which this piece of equipment comes in at, we would expect a little more.

The fact that the Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike only comes with a 1-year limited warranty is fairly disappointing.

Alternatives To The Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike

To give you a reference point when making your purchase, let’s talk about some of the other great mid-range recumbent bike models that you can go with.

Exerpeutic 900XL Extended Capacity Recumbent Bike

This is a good alternative to go with if you want to save a little bit of money. The 2000 is like the upgraded version of the 900XL, but it does also cost a little more. Both of these machines have 8 magnetic resistance levels, but the 900XL has a dial, whereas the 2000 uses digital adjustment. Moreover, the 2000 features 6 workout programs, whereas the 900XL has none. Moreover, the Exerpeutic 2000 Recumbent Bike features an awesome Air Soft seat, something which the 900XL does not have.

Schwinn 230 Recumbent Bike

This recumbent bike is currently one of the highest rated mid-range models. It has 20 levels of digitally adjustable magnetic resistance with 22 different workout programs, whereas the Exerpeutic 2000 only has 8 levels of resistance and 6 workout programs. That being said, the Schwinn 230 Recumbent Bike will cost you more than the Exerpeutic 2000. One thing that is better about the Exerpeutic 2000 is the awesome air soft seat. While the Schwinn 230 has a well-ventilated seat, it is not very soft or well padded. In terms of comfort, the Exerpeutic 2000 is the way to go, but in terms of functionality, the Schwinn is probably the better option.

Final Thoughts On The Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike

All in all, the Exerpeutic 2000 High Capacity Programmable Magnetic Recumbent Bike is a fantastic choice to go with. It is a little bit on the expensive side for what it is, but it has quite a bit of functionality. If you need a recumbent bike that is comfortable, this model is great thanks to its awesome seat, adjustability, pedals, and armrests.
