DKN AM-E Exercise Bike – Black

Although the upper resistance settings are challenging and we have heard of competitive road bikers using it to keep in fit over winter, this bike is more suited for beginner to intermediate fitness levels. The magnetic resistance is steady, but it does take a few revolutions of the pedals before an increase in resistance kicks…
