This stationary bike is about as no frills as they come, though that doesn’t mean it isn’t effective. It features an LCD display that is easy to read with all the necessary information that you'd want to track - speed, distance, time, calories and pulse.

What people are saying
As Amazon’s Choice among exercise bikes, the XTERRA Fitness FB150 Folding Exercise Bike has earned a 4.4-star rating from more than 10,000 reviews. According to reviewers, not only is it easy to assemble, but it also provides a quiet ride that works up a sweat.
“This bike is amazing! Almost totally silent which was a huge reason I purchased this,” reads one five-star review. “I can bike and watch tv, or bike before going to work and not wake anyone up. The tension is awesome too! I just did 25 mins and I feel great! Best purchase I've made in a long time.”
Its compact size is also a major selling feature, particularly for those living in small spaces.
“Now more than ever I have been lacking in the exercise department, not being able to go out for walks or go to the gym. This bike is absolutely silent, which I was not expecting at all, and works great for people who use exercise bikes more casually,” reads another. “As for size, this bike is not bulky and fits our small apartment really well. We are able to move it around easily to exercise wherever we want, and that is a huge bonus.”
Customers have shared that if you’re a casual bike rider, you’ll find this compact exercise bike is suitable for your needs. If you’re a frequent rider with a high fitness level however, this may not provide an adequate workout.
“Although I am far from being athletic, I feel the resistance is not high enough even at maximum setting (it goes up to 8). You really have to commit to a long workout if you want to get something out if it,” cautioned one reviewer.
People who are looking for a compact way to work out at home will likely enjoy the ease of the XTERRA Fitness FB150 Folding Exercise Bike, especially if you’re not looking for a super intense workout.
At just $181, it’s an affordable way to incorporate gym equipment into your workout routine, which can help keep you motivated on your fitness journey.
