Yes, Sparks has an in-house assembly and installation crew that is responsible for ensuring your Recumbent Bike is properly assembled according to the manufacturers specifications. Sparks delivery crew work fast and are experienced so you don't have to worry about your floors or walls getting scratched while they bring the Recumbent Bike in your home. The crew also takes all the refrigerator sized trash/packaging, pallet materials with them after install is complete, which is a plus because even if I break it down the packaging still doesn't fit in my trash bins.
Sparks recommends trying before you buy when shopping for a Recumbent Bike. For proper fitment; when using a Recumbent Bike your legs should have a slight bend when fully extended, comfortable posture, feet securely placed on the pedals by adjusting the foot straps. Having a seat that is comfortable and stable is an important feature as you ride for long durations.
You can test recumbent bikes out at a Sparks Fitness retail store, they have a store in Sparks, Nevada and another store in Addison, Texas. For store hours and info scroll to the bottom of this page.
Recumbents have low and wider seats than stationary bikes. Recumbents also put less stress on your joints which is best for people who have arthritis, knee replacements or any knee or back injuries. Recumbents are much easier to balance on and sit comfortably during your workout which allow you to go longer which means more calories burned. Recumbent Bikes will work your abs, as you pedal the bike your abs need to engage in order to stabilize and balance your body. Your abs are also responsible for giving you the power to push with your legs and drive the pedals on the Recumbent with power. Your lower and obliques get activated as well.
