man, i've been hearing about this [the airdyne bike] bad boy all over the place, and they are really good things. I've been putting together a "personal gym" for a while now in my garage and I thought it would be a great addition

however i can only find one for 625ish :shock:

holy crap

most of the stuff I got is second hand or bout to be thrown away lol

are there cheaper models or decent copies for a much lower price?

i like sprinting and jumping rope and use my friend's elliptical (all for anaerobic) when i can, but i think this would make life a bunch easier or at least a good compliment! any help would be appreciated! =]

I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was. To catch them is my real test, to train them is my cause. I will travel across the land, searching far and wide. Teach Pokemon to understand the power that's inside. Pokemon!

I bought an Schwinn Airdyne bike on Craiglist and its from the 80's. I only paid $200.

What is awesome about the bike is that it works upper and lower while a conventional bike works lower body, so it makes it great for conditioning. Your heart rate goes up quickly with the bike and that's what you want. Personally running has a lot of impact on my joints, so I don't enjoy that. The bike is awesome, and I recommend getting one used.

had one for a while, its a good workout, needs no electricity - just blows a bunch of air on you while riding - not good for weight cutting. IMO

+1 with Chaz on the weight cutting bit.I'd put on a few sweatshirts to do that on the bike.

It's still a pretty good workout cos it involves the whole body in a way.

I'm working on my own weighted vest now, it's hard to find stuff like that over here,that's why I miss home at times :lol:

Bought a few fisherman's vest, modifying them making sure when I slot in them weights they'll be balanced, I hope one will turn out right.

Thanks to Chaz, Captcha's ass been capped!

That's pretty cool, I like it.

man today has not been my day

long story short, the lady sold it to someone else thinking they were, like, my proxy. I ended up being stranded at a mall after visiting a GNC (where i bought some mass xxx that i'm going to try today) when my battery died. awesome. missed class =[ Now i'm posting from the Apple store, so, like always, I've tried to roll with the punches.

My parents came gave it a jump and took it home. Now my GF is gonna meet up with me but she's not answering her phone. =S

BTW I asked several people just to give me a jump and they looked at me and just kept walking, except a little faster. haha weird

thanks just needed to vent that lol

So it looks like Im going to be getting a Vitamaster Air Advantage. I've been trying to look up a review but can't seem to find one. Hopefully it turns out to be worth 45 bucks lol

Damn the ten dollar one would have been great

c'est la vie
