There are many types of bikes available on the market these days, but what’s the difference between a spin bike and an exercise bike? And, more importantly, which one should you buy if you want to start cycling at home?
The main difference between a spin bike and an exercise bike is that a spin bike has fixed handlebars. This means that when you cycle, your body is in a more upright position than it would be on an exercise bike. This can make spinning easier on your back and neck as it puts less strain on these areas. However, because your body is in a more upright position when cycling on a spin bike, it can also be harder to get into the rhythm of pedaling compared to using an exercise bike.
Exercise bikes have adjustable handlebars which means that you can adjust them so they fit snugly against your chest – this allows you to cycle in the same position as if you were sitting in a regular chair. Because of this adjustment option – and because people tend to find riding them more comfortable – most people choose Exercise Bikes over Spin Bikes for general fitness purposes; however, Spin Bikes are often used by cyclists who want to train indoors during bad weather or winter months (or those who simply don’t have room for two pieces of equipment).
