DeskCycle 2 Under Desk Bike Pedal Exerciser with Adjustable Leg – Mini Exercise Bike Desk Cycle, Leg Exerciser for Physical Therapy & Desk Exercise
Easy to assemble and to use, but not convenient. The rope to attach it to the chair do more or less the job of keeping the machine or the chair moving. Once attached to the chair, it is inconvenient to pull back or forth the chair, like when you want to sit in or leave the chair. Totally not convenient while working at the same time. But if sit in a sofa and watching TV (and put the machine on a rug), then it is OK. This machine does not fit under a work desk but perfectly fine in front of a sofa while watching TV.

Been looking for this product now for a while. I had originally gotten this cheap exercise bike and of course the seat hurt SO MUCH that I began only using the pedals, going backwards, sitting on a chair. So that worked, until the pedals kept coming off. By a month of daily use and daily screwing the pedals back in, the threading was so bad I had to screw it in every five minutes. I thought, okay this might be a problem with all “at home” exercise equipment.
BUT THEN, I found this awesome cycle. NO threading issues, no screwing anything in except for the very first time when I put it together. No sliding on the floor even when I’m using it. It just does what it’s supposed to do. The calorie counter and speedometer work great. The cycling is SUPER QUIET. The only issue I even have is maybe a tiny one – there’s a big difference between level 1 and level 2, it feels like quite a sharp increase for one little increment. But that’s literally it, my one and only tiny complaint. I would recommend this cycle to anyone.

I did a lot of research before buying my Desk Cycle 2. I read just about every article available, thought it couldn’t hurt more than sitting already does, and ordered one. After using it for a month with a lot of success, I revisited those articles and noticed something: every reviewer patently ignored the instructions to start at level 1 for a week, then increase incrementally, and only go up to level 3 if you still want to get work done. They all cranked it up to level 4 or higher right away.
Having actually followed said above instructions, I can safely say this is fantastic and I wish I’d bought one sooner. It’s great to fit exercise in whenever you can, and staying at a level 3, I pedal for 3-4 hours during the course of my workday without sweating at all. This also got me to switch my work heels for flats, so that’s probably also better for my feet.
All in all a great purchase. Don’t hesitate to buy one, just read *all* of the instructions, not just the ones for installation.
I am a website developer and 3D artist so I live a very sedentary lifestyle. I am always around a computer as I have to deal with pretty rigid deadlines. Therefor, there really isn’t time to hit the gym. I did buy a treadmill with a incline a while back, but things got too busy so I couldn’t use it any more. It was a bummer too as I lost about 12 pounds on it in about three months.
However, I decided to buy this little machine about 5 weeks ago. And I am not disappointed. It is VERY quite. Not a single annoying squeak. And best of all, I went from 160 lb to 153 lb..in just 5 weeks. My diet has not changed much (outside of limiting my take out and increasing my protein levels). I use this machine about 2-3 hours Monday-Friday, and 4-5 hours Saturday-Sunday. I don’t even need to use the higher tension settings. I use tension 2 and 3 with 2 being used for the first hour and 3 being used for the second to third hour.
I am quite happy with this and surprised that I have lost weight in such a short time frame. It has also helped strengthen my legs as well, which is always a plus. 🙂
I would highly recommend this desk bike!
I bought this since I’m on mandatory WFH for my company – I have a spin bike and do other workouts, but I’m often sitting now for long, long hours, so I took a gamble on this unit. I’m glad I did!
Other reviewers said it best – READ THE INSTRUCTIONS. These are hands down some of the best instructions I’ve read in a long time (I work in the tech field, a lot of not-so-stellar manuals out there). If you read the instructions, this unit is a breeze to put together, and take their advice on starting out on level 1 for the first week – the resistance levels are fairly intense, which is a big reason why I like it so much. I’m actually challenged, not aimlessly pedaling. I plan on bringing this to the office once we have the OK to go back. Definitely worth the money!
I’ve been using this every day since I bought it, and this deserves 10 stars. My legs have never felt so good after sitting at my desk all day! It’s so quiet, I never hear it. The machine doesn’t slide or move (it’s on hardwood) and the intensity levels are, well intense! I am incredibly impressed with this machine – to be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but with all this insane WFH, I am looking forward to getting some seriously buff legs sitting on my rear all day! 🙂

I use my DeskCycle2 to give me some good daily exercise at home, now that my usual outside fitness program is closed due to COVID. It fits comfortably under any desk or table where I care to put it; though it’s solid and well-constructed, I can still lift it with relative ease to put it wherever I like (and I’m in my early 70’s). I appreciated the clear print instructions for assembly (don’t worry – it’s only putting on the base/ feet, the pedals and the LCD display, and you get a nifty wrench for doing that!) and for best practice usage. Many more exercise features are available on the DeskCycle2 website. The display stand and the tether, also included in the price, enhance the features of the DeskCycle and show thought in its design. The DeskCycle2 is so straight-forward and easy to use that you’ll find yourself using it regularly. Guaranteed not to gather dust! BTW, a friend and I are “in training” for a Zoom pedalling marathon.
Love it. I no longer feel guilty watching TV.
I can do 10-15 km without even noticing it.
My thigh muscles are stronger and knees less painful
I’m hoping to avoid knee replacements (osteoarthritis).
I was annoyed when I took this out of the box and realized I’d have to spend a few minutes assembling it. I almost gave up and returned it because I wasn’t even sure I would ever use it. My kids got home from school and seemed interested so I used it for the first time to show them how it works. That was a half hour ago, and I can’t stop pedaling. It’s addictive. I thought I would be annoyed having to focus on it, but after a couple minutes I didn’t think about it anymore and I’m keeping a pretty steady pace. Then I thought my knees are a little sore, but that’s probably because I’m overweight. Not going to stop peddling over that. I don’t love to sweat, but I’m sitting in my cool house sweating which just tells me it’s making my body work at least quite a bit more than sitting still and doing nothing. I went from total disinterest just shopping for a new desk to be sure I have plenty of space for clearance. I got this on sale for $120. I don’t normally spend much on gifts, but there were a few people that I’ve already decided I’m going to gift this too because they work at a desk like I do and this thing really feels great to pedal. If you are reading this, it’s because you need to be more active – just like me. Give it a shot because if it’s not as enjoyable for you, stick it back in the box and print out a return label – but you won’t. It’s addictive.
As you can see, I didn’t even stop pedaling for the photo.

When I purchased this machine my diabetes was out of control along with my weight. After the first week, my insulin requirements dropped by 4 daily units. There was no weight loss until the 3rd week.
After 10 weeks, my insulin requirement has dropped to 40 units/day (from 72 units/day) & I have loss 10lbs. The machine is absolutely soundless & very easy to setup (see pic). I use it 5 times/week and for only 30 mins. Overtime, I’ve graduated from level 1 to 3, i.e., bike’s resistance setting. The beautiful bonus is that the machine (thru their website) speaks to my Fitbit! Yay!
Love this machine. I mulled over this purchase and read through TONS of reviews before purchasing. It definitely lives up to its good reviews. I was worried about it being too noisy because I work in a cubicle type setting but they don’t even know when I’m peddling. It was very simple to put together so I’m confused by the reviews that said otherwise. It came with the one tool that you need. Its very smooth to peddle and I am 5’6″ with a 27 inch clearance under my desk and my knees don’t hit. I did pay the $10 more for the Deskcycle 2 because it is one inch lower (the only real difference between the two) and I’m glad I did. I have a my desk up against a wall so the machine doesn’t go anywhere when I peddle but I do have to use the strap that came with it so that my chair (on wheels) doesn’t move backwards. I love that I can put the electronic display/tracker on my desk so I can see my progress and it doesn’t reset the distance/time/calories until I do it manually so it keeps track all day without losing data. The tension control is a nice feature as well. I am pre-diabetic so along with calorie burning I’m happy to have the increased circulation all day too. Overall, after all my research into the competitors, this one is the lowest (has the best chance of fitting under your desk) and best option and I’m glad I purchased it.
