Fitness exercise equipment like the modern stationary exercise bicycles have been around since the end of the 18th century with its ancestor called the Gymnasticon. Primarily built for the sick it was invented by Francis Lowndes and was claimed to be able to treat gout, rheumatism and debility among others. Later on it gave tremendous contributions to the physical therapy field in the 19th century. Now, however, modern technology and innovations have made the stationary exercise bikes a more durable, versatile, and portable machine than it used to be. That being said let me introduce you to the Kettler Ergo Racer Trainer Exercise Bike.
