    Exercise bikes, stationary bikes, spin bikes etc are often perceived as being massively boring to use. Many end up being used as clothes racks within weeks of purchase.

    Yes, And household exercise bike is not a good option. A road bike or mountain bike is in suggestion.

    I would highly recommend buying a real bicycle. A stationary bike is no fun and it doesn't really work well to give you meaningful exercise. The best part about cycling is to get outside and explore new routes, climb and descend hills and breathe lots of fresh air. You improve your fitness while you're having fun, not while you're sitting in your house in one spot, turning some cranks with your legs. Get out there and ride, my friend! You may have winter where you live, so get a bike that you can take out in bad weather. Might even want to invest in a set of studded tires. Get a bike like this so you can afford it:

    If you have the budget, get a real bike and a bike trainer. With a smart trainer you can connect to the internet and race other people, do training programs or climb mountains.

    You use your bike on the trainer and you can also use your bike outside.

    Search on smart trainers, Zwift and The Sufferfest for some ideas of what's available.

    A choice between a mountain bike and a sports bike for me. Stores have good staff that knows each make and model and its specs but better to research on the best brand that would work for you.

    my choice goes towards buying a fitness cycle. in this generation, everyone has their busy schedule and they don't have time to go out but they want to be fit. so, it's better to take the fitness cycle and move fast.
