Oh, okay! That's cool. :) You're on the right board, I just wasn't sure what it was!

hehe I clicked on this link thinking "manual bike" is a "bike" that you push the pedals with your hands, i.e., an arm bike.

But whatever kind of bike it is, good for you for not letting the weather stop you!!

If it allows you to set different resistance levels and has mechanical tracking of the distance you have pedaled then it should work just fine for cardio.


It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.

I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.

Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.

Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit

I assumed it just meant a real outdoor bike, as opposed to a stationary bike? maybe I am wrong?

I'm really not understanding your terminology here. What is a manual bike? (I'm not super familiar with bike terminology.)

It is an excellent workout! HUGE calorie burn on a manual bike when you find some hilly or off-road trails! Love my mountain bike, can't wait to get back on her, but right now, in Canada, its -30 celcius and 2 feet of snow so she is in the garage for a while yet lol :)

I hate my manual bike, but I know I won't walk to the gym in this cold. Anyone ever used a manual bike? do you think it's a good work out?
