The biggest problem I have with stationary bikes is that many of them use a very heavy flywheel. When you get pedaling fast, this creates a tremendous amount of momentum resulting in an unnatural firing of the quads, and practically no use of the hamstrings. Therefore, I don’t feel like stationary bikes are practical for training purposes. About the only thing they are good for is burning calories.
