Weslo Easy 100 Exercise Bike Review

We have not yet had the opportunity to properly review the Weslo Easy 100 Pursuit Cycle, but hope to be able to very soon.

Our view – Basic is the first word that comes to mind when trying the Weslo 100. It only has two pre-set programmes which looks sparse compared to the 21 of the York C201 costing around the same. However, if you’re looking for a comfortable, no-nonsense exercise bike that will get you fit this can certainly deliver that.

The fully adjustable handles and saddle makes it an ideal budget model for multiple users. If you’re short on space this compact bike has built-in transport wheels for easy portability. The saddle is quite comfortable and with the wide pedals most riders except those over 6’3″ should find a good riding posture.
The pedal action is pretty smooth but some may find the manual resistance control a bit fiddly. Others in this price bracket just require a press off a button on the console, whereas this bike has the ‘old-fashioned’ knurled knob to twist. This isn’t a huge inconvenience but for many it’s not as easy as digital control.

The display/ console is easy to read and use – from see Sweatband’s website for an image of the console. The two pre-set programmes are a bit limited and don’t really offer too much variation but then many users aren’t too fussed about programmes and are happy to set the pace themselves. You can measure your pulse using the grips on the handles – this is displayed along with the usual, time, distance, calories etc.

However, there are no heart rate controlled programmes to help optimise your workout. These useful fitness and weightloss features are available in this price range on the Proform 748EKG and the previously mentioned York C201 and the ever-popular Bremshey Pacer.
