Xterra Fitness FB150 Folding Exercise Bike Review

The Xterra Fitness FB150 upright bike has a manual magnetic resistance system integrated inside it. It integrates a little magnetic brake, which is attached to the dial at the highest of the front, a part of the frame through a steel wire. By turning the dial clockwise or counterclockwise, the brake’s position in reference to the flywheel changes. This results in an intensity shift of the interior magnetic flux, which ultimately leads to an increase or decreases pedal resistance.

Since the bike’s resistance system is exclusively manual, you do not need to connect it to an influence source. Also, the console doesn’t play any role within the bike’s resistance adjustment.
