How To Set Up An Indoor Exercise Bike?

If you never took the time to learn the proper setup, you're asking for many problems—including injury.

Before using the exercise bike, due to everyone's height is different, we need to adjust the indoor exercise bike to make our experience better. It can also improve the exercise effect of the indoor exercise bike. Then we will introduce the adjustment method of the indoor exercise bike in detail.

1.Indoor Exercise Bike bicycle adjustment-seat height:

Stand next to the bike and position the seat to hit the size of your hipbone. Then sit in the car and check to ensure that the knee joint is between 30° and 40°. Once you're in the saddle, make sure you can reach the bottom of the pedal stroke with a slightly bent knee and flat foot.

Due to the adjustment process of the indoor exercise bike, if the seat is too low, the knee joint will bow too much and bear too much force, causing discomfort to the knee joint. In addition, too low a seat can also make the backbend too much, causing waist discomfort. A too-low saddle causes you to lose range of motion in your pedal stroke, meaning you're not making the most of each stride and short-changing your workout. If the seat is too high, the posture of the back leg muscles will be deformed, causing strain on the back leg muscles. Long-term use may also cause Achilles tendon inflammation and back discomfort.

2.Indoor Exercise Bike adjustment-Distance between your saddle and handlebars

It would help if you closed enough to hold the handlebars comfortably. It would help if you didn't have to lunge for them, nor should your body feel squeezed between the handlebar and the saddle. If your knee bangs into the emergency brake mean you're too far forward. Suppose you're in or out of the saddle. It means you're sinking into your joints, and you end up putting weight into your thighs or arms instead of engaging your core. It would be best to push your hips and booty back, so your weight is right over the saddle.

 3.Indoor Exercise Bike adjustment-handlebar height:

The height of the handlebar should be slightly higher than that of the seat. During the adjustment process, ensure that the distance from the top end of the seat to the handlebar can just be put down the forearm and the palm. Too low handlebars will put too much pressure on the shoulders, arms, and wrists of the upper body, causing discomfort. Too high handlebars will make the body too straight, and the waist core muscles will have too little power, which requires extra power from the legs to make up for the strength of the core muscles. It will make the thighs tired faster and reduce the effect of exercise.

The above is the adjustment method of indoor exercise bikes before exercise. Some indoor exercise bikes are more user-friendly, like Yosuda indoor exercise bikes are more convenient and smoother.

When using it at home, as long as each family member remembers his scale when adjusting for the first time, there is no need to change according to his height contrast afterward. So it is very suitable for the whole family. Moreover, it has a high appearance and a simple appearance, which is ideal for the home environment.
