Fancy getting some fitness equipment but conscious that most it looks plain ugly? It’s ok, we have a solution. The Schwinn Classic Cruiser exercise bike.

Yes, you can get a version of the classic Schwinn bike for the home. Well, theoretically you can ride a standard Schwinn around the house, but you would need a VERY big house to get much movement going. Not with this though, it is very compact.

Yet it has the same vintage look of a Schwinn, but the design of a standard excretes bike. The best off both worlds if you like – and more besides too.

Go beyond the novelty of the vintage styling (I know, it is hard) and you will find an exercise bike with state of the art EMC resistance (offering seven levels), the option to switch between miles and KM and most interesting of all, Bluetooth connectivity.

In fact, this bike also has a media shelf with a tablet holder. Hook up that tablet, download the free Schwinn Classic Cruiser App and you can track time,calories, distance and more, as well as being able to play a game that involves you riding through a 1950s town avoiding various retro obstacles.

Pre-programmed workouts too if you need a target to hit. Or you can just park it in front of the TV and watch that as you pedal away.

Bad news? It doesn’t come cheap and finding one in the UK isn’t easy. But as a guide, you can pick up one in the US for $800, which works out at around £600.
