Excy Is a Full-Fledged Exercise Bike in a Tiny Package

It s big enough that your knees are going to bump up against the tabletop.

If you ve done group cycling classes, you know the drill: twist a knob on the bike to get more resistance, and twist it the other way when you need to lighten up.

If the Keeper still slides—mine did, although Excy s team says that s unusual—you can secure it by wrapping the included toggle ties around the back legs of the chair.

So does Excy founder Michele Miehl: She broke her leg while the Excy was still in development, so she switched to using it with her arms.

Excy s app comes with a configurable interval timer so you can design your own workout, and a series of programmed interval workouts that play an audio track telling you what to do while displaying a visual overview of the workout: yellow bars for easy, orange for medium, red for hard.

The sweet spot for Excy is probably a person who wants to do cycling workouts, and who has the budget to consider a full sized exercise bike but not the space for one.
