What You Should Know
Confidence Fitness Space Saving X Bike is a folding exercise bike that takes up a small amount of space when folded. The unit weighs only 50 pounds. The total space saved when the unit is folded is 11 inches. The exercise bike has magnetic resistance and a computer display. The display shows time spent exercising, speed of the bike at any given moment, distance traveled and total calories burned. Most computer units display average calories, so this figure should be considered as an estimate not a definitive number.
Confidence does not appear to sell the Confidence Fitness Space Saving X Bike on an official website, but buyers can order the machine from Amazon.com for about $140.

Biking is a great exercise that just about any dieter can do. The adjustable magnetic resistance on the Confidence Fitness Space Saving X Bike allows the rider to change the intensity of the workout. According to the product description, biking burns 4 times the calories of walking, but that depends on the speed and incline the dieter is walking.
The basic information given for the exercise bike does not reveal a weight limit. At only 50 pounds, we assume the weight limit is somewhere in the 200 to 250-pound range for the rider. This limits the dieters who can use the bike for exercise.
There are 10 levels of tension. The computer display is not backlit so reading the screen in low light is nearly impossible. The seat tends to sit higher so shorter users may have trouble reaching the pedals. Extremely tall users may also have trouble. One consumer who is 6 feet tall complained of feeling hunched over every time he used the bike.
The seat tends to be very hard, so users may find it more comfortable to purchase a gel seat pad. For the price, most consumers are happy with the Confidence Fitness Space Saving X Bike, but some complain about clunking noises and loud operation after only a few months of use.
