The 10 Most Popular Exercise Bike Brands Sold in the U.S.

This listing is intended to be a guide as to what exercise bike brands are currently the most popular in the USA, at the time of this writing (since exercise bike brands come and go and the sales of various bike types rise and fall). The manufacturers listed here sell the most popular exercise bike types (Upright, Recumbent and Indoor Cycle).

The top 10 most popular exercise bike brand listing that I've compiled here is not based on exercise bikes sales alone (although sales is a factor) nor is it based on the quality or perceived quality of the exercise bikes.

This list is not meant to be an endorsement of these brands but is intended to be a recognition that the brands are popular. I have included the popular low end brands as well as the popular high end brands.
