Note – Fitness bikes are indeed moving bicycles NOT stationary gym exercise bikes!
Fitness bikes aim to strike a balance between the comfort of the upright confidence giving position of the mountain bike with the fast rolling speed of a road bike. Many people particularly those coming from mountain biking or struggling with limited flexibility dislike the bent over position of a road bike with drop bars, the fitness bike fixes this. Offering adjusted geometry and straight handlebars combined with smooth but wide wheels it offers an easy to get on with appealing option for any level of rider. This bike differs from a hybrid in that it has no suspension and higher grade components so is more closely related to the road bike. For a rider looking for a simple way to escape the humdrum of daily life on a summers evening or for a couple of hours at the weekend but still wanting the ability for a good workout this is the bike for you.
