  •  My bike was stolen... (9+ / 0-)

    ...a long time ago, and I've never bothered to look for an affordable replacement. There are always other more pressing expenses....

    •  I got a stationary bike ordered online from Sears (6+ / 0-)

      about 150 delivered. Light and portable. Now I need to "ride" it more. The good thing is you can listen to news or music while exercising. I tend to use it twice a day for 20 min or so. We're in a little VT hill town and a real bike would be a killer.

      •  I thought about getting one, but... (6+ / 0-)

        ...my apartment is just too small. I actually bought an elliptical-type machine from Amazon but when it arrived I realized that it was too big for the living room. It's still sitting here in its shipping container. I keep meaning to put it on Craigslist.

        I'd really like to be able to have music or TV while I exercise!

        •  I literally have this bike against a side wall (5+ / 0-)

          between my computer and a small desk. Even though it's portable  I ride in place, so to speak.  Then I put on my distance glasses so as to see the tv, doncha know and put on my headset which is connected to the tv. FYI,  the model is called stamina 1300 magnetic upright exercise bike - don't know if mentioning brands is ok, but there you go. I too tried first a very used x-country machine, then a used  treadmill. Both too big and bulky - gave 'em away. This is really convenient and I use it more often. If you like classical music, somebody put together about an hour of Bach's top ten or words to that effect, on Youtube. So I can just listen to the 'puter if tv is boring. This is really apartment sized. And I can carry it my own self, as little kids say. ( I got a kick out of your description of the machine still in the shipping container.When we picked up  the treadmill, we had to use a dolly to get it in the house. Never again..)
          Check out the intertubes - hope you find something. Sorry for no pic of the bike.
