What We Like About The Goplus Recumbent Exercise Bike

There are a few specific features of the Goplus Recumbent Exercise Bike that we are fans of, so let’s talk about those right now.

One of the things that we like about the Goplus Recumbent Exercise Bike is that it comes with 8 levels of magnetic resistance. The fact that it comes with magnetic resistance is definitely a big bonus. Magnetic resistance is smooth and quiet, it doesn’t bump and shudder, and is silent enough for you to listen to music or watch TV while using the Goplus Recumbent Exercise Bike. Moreover, the simple to use adjustment knob lets you select from the 8 levels of preset magnetic tension. Another of the reasons why we really like magnetic tension recumbent bikes is because they tend to experience much less wear and tear than other types of resistance.

Another thing that we really like about the Goplus Recumbent Exercise Bike is the quality of the frame. The steel frame is very strong, can handle a fair amount of punishment, and has a fairly impressive 300-pound weight capacity. The frame is a step-through model, which means that you can very easily mount and dismount the Goplus Recumbent Exercise Bike.

Yet another thing that we really like about the Goplus Recumbent Exercise Bike is the seat. The seat is well padded so your back and butt won’t end up being painful. Moreover, the seat is specially designed to be ergonomically friendly, which is after all one of the main points of recumbent bikes. Moreover, the seat is adjustable in terms of height so that people of various sizes can use the Goplus Recumbent Exercise Bike with ease. We also like the pedals, simply because they come with good grip and a strap so your feet will stay in place.

We also like how the Goplus Recumbent Exercise Bike comes with a decent computer display system. It can easily keep track of things such as RPM, speed, time, distance, and calories burned.

Another neat aspect of the Goplus Recumbent Exercise Bike is that it does in fact have a heart rate monitor. There are handlebars beside the seat which you can take hold of, which then register your current heart rate and display it on the computer screen.

What We Don’t Like About The Goplus Recumbent Exercise Bike

There are a couple of things which could be improved upon with the Goplus Recumbent Exercise Bike, so let’s quickly go over those possible improvements.

We do not like how the Goplus Recumbent Exercise Bike seems to have very stiff tensions. Some users have noted that even though there are not many levels of resistance, even the lowest ones seem to be quite challenging.

The seat adjustment feature is quite limited. Some people have noted that anyone over 6 feet tall will have trouble using the Goplus Recumbent Exercise Bike.

Both have a nice steel frame with a convenient step-through feature, plus both have a 300-pound weight limit. Both models cost about the same, they both have the same style of computer display, and they both have the same number of resistance levels too. The only real difference between the two is that the Marcy weighs slightly more.
