My name is Ariel and I am 41 YO (in March).
I am looking for an exercise bike and because I tried both - upright and cycles, I realized I feel better on the cycle.
I am looking for a bike that will not need maintenance much and will last in time.

I do care about the cost, but first I care about not throwing money on the window - buying a poor quality bike that I won't be able to use it, or it will break within weeks, or it will need maintenance all the time.

I also gained a lot of weight in the past 2 years - from 144 pounds to 184 pounds I understood that this matters as some bikes are not designed to support heavy people, especially if they paddle standing up.

Ideally I would use the bike an hour a day. I do not see myself using it more

THANK YOU so much for your help. I looked at so many reviews on Amazon but none of them convinced me so far.
Thank you again.
