Today I got my new exercise bike. It is exactly the same as my old one, actually, but my old one had started creaking, squeaking, and wobbling, and seeing as I work out at 6 in the morning it was waking my roommates, so I figured it was time to move on. According to reviews, most bikes in its price range last about a year. Mine lasted almost three, and that's with me riding it between 1 and 3 hours a day 4 to 6 days a week over most of that three year period. I figure that points to fairly good quality for the price. The list price is $250, but Amazon sells it for $135, plus I get free shipping.
I also bought a bag of chocolate covered pretzels, because, you know, I may workout like a mother-fucker, but I'm keepin' it real.
