    I bet it'd get REALLY exciting if one side's spring broke while riding!

    Oh, boy, I don't like drawing attention to myself, but that's pretty goofy looking. Unimaginable!!!

    I bet you somewhere out there in the dark reaches of the internet, someone has found a way to merge a Thigh Master with a Litespeed.

    It says right there that people aren't shocked by the excycle.

    God, I think that .gif is stealing my soul after looking at it for 8 minutes.

    From the staircycle website.


    As we have seen in most health clubs, "stair climber" exercise machines are far more popular than stationery bikes.

    Is a "stationery" bike one you write home to mom about?

    Yes, I have noticed the popularity or stair steppers over "stationery" bikes in my gym. I guess that is why we have 10 stationary bikes and two stair steppers (which are almost always empty) Another nightmare in consumer products!

    I'd rather pedal my weight machine than lift on the bike.

    Sheldon Brown's website has some more pics and a review from the bike show he just went to. He has some positive things to say about it. For one thing, the arms drive the front wheel, so you can get two wheel drive... that's kinda cool on a mountain bike.
