The FitDesk FDX 2.0 is the bestselling folding exercise bike with a desktop.
It’s also well rated by customers overall.
It’s one of the more expensive folding exercise bikes but it still outsells many of the others.
So, it would seem it has something about it!
Of course, it’s very useful with you able to get two things done at once – exercise and work or studying or anything else like playing video games or watching TV.
It can help you get fit without having to make time in already too full schedule.
With more of us sitting all day while we work which we are told is bad for us, this bike makes a lot of sense. You can still work and get in shape at the same time.
85% of customers rate it a 4 or 5. You read my full review here.
5 Reasons Why Fitdesk FX 2.0 Is Highly Rated And Good Value
You Get To Exercise When You Want And Can
It’s very quiet. You can talk on the phone and no one at the other end will know unless you are breathing hard. It won’t make noise that might distract you from your work.
You can also use it without disturbing others. You could use it at night and not wake up others. Or you could watch TV without turning up the volume.
If you want you can use it in the office( if it is allowed) others won’t get distracted by the noise – no doubt making them all jealous when they see you on it!
It’s not the most intense exercise although you can adjust the resistance to get a moderate hard workout and if you are using this while you work you probably don’t want to be going for it while trying to be productive too.
It’s easy to change how hard the pedaling is by adjusting the resistance by turning the tension knob on the frame below the desk.
It Is A Space Saver
It does this in 2 ways. First up it doesn’t take up much room when it is being used. It needs an area of 16 by 28 ins to be set up so can fit nicely in most rooms and offices
Then when you’ve finished you can fold it up to about 3 /4 size a bit like an ironing board. It doesn’t fold up/down completely. But you can fit it behind a door or in a closet when you want to put it out of the way. It doesn’t take long to get it ready folded up – it simple to do and the same when you want to use it.
It also has rollers on the rear stabilizer that help you to move it around as well as in and out of storage.
There are also resistance cords at the back of the chair that you can make use of for an upper body workout to when you’re not using your hands for work.
You won’t get much done if the bike was shaking or wobbling while you use it. Fortunately, that isn’t an issue.
The steel frame and stabilizer bars hold everything steady so get a still desktop that allow you to type away on your laptop or any other device.
This allows you to concentrate on your work while you pedal away.
It can fit people between the heights of 4ft 10 ins and 6 ft 5 ins with a maximum weight of 300 lbs and users have all felt they are secure on the bike – they don’t feel like its going to tip over and doesn’t rock.
It has been built to be used for a number of years to get your activity and exercise in. It comes with a lifetime warranty on the frame and 1 year on the parts.
It is built to be low maintenance with high quality gearbox, magnetic resistance and belt drive. These don’t require any ongoing maintenance and should provide years of workouts.
Your Working Space
It’s important that you have enough room on the desktop to do your work as well as it not wobbling all over the place.
The desktop is 16 by 19 inches with will fit a 17 – 18 inch laptop without a mouse. There’s a tray underneath the desk for your phone and pens to keep them close at hand. It is possible to increase the desktop using the desk extension pack that is available separately.
Also you’re sitting down so you don’t want to be going numb or experiencing pain. It has a seat that most do find comfortable to sit for a longer periods – although you still should get off the bike regularly.
Most don’t experience the soreness you often get when you sit on a bike due to design of the seat along with the backrest. But if you do a gel seat cover is often a good idea to provide more comfort.
Today it is emphasized more than ever how important it is to stay active to keep away many of the diseases and health issues that are being experiences.
Being able to exercise while you work is a great way to do this without having to give up some more of your time to do it.
