i hate to be a wet blanket, but the last time i purchased one, it became a clothes hanger until i decided to get rid of it to make way for other stuff. :laugh:

so i guess, if u're considering to buy one, it'd be to look out for under-utilisation. :wink: in my opinion, consider getting a bike to ride around together with your sons. better view, fresher air. :smile:

:idea:

So a good exercise bike is one with big and broad handles .... So that it would be a good clothes hanger later? :evil: :duck: :siam:

it'd be useful to have a basket too, for smaller items like thongs, bras, etc. :wink:

Your condo gym should have one, ya? Stationary bike is boring and this form of exercise is difficult to sustain. You may wanna try out the gym first.

My mother bought one years ago and it became a clothes/towel hanger too. I rescued it for a couple of years, and actually did use it. So how much it is used will depend on whether you can work it into your schedule. After that we went overseas so it went back to being a clothes hanger. I have no advice on choosing one though.

I bought the one which handles can move. I thought can exercise my arms too. However, I realised I have difficulty when I want to read book/ipad while I am exercising. I am wondering whether or where I can buy a stand which I can place 30cm in front of my face while cycling :scratchhead:

This is really hilarious :laugh:
I almost choked on my mooncake.
Let me share what happened to my Ellipitical trainer.
First few years, I used it regularly, few times a week. Then not sure what happened, I started hanging paper bags full of stuff on the handles :imanangel:
After a few months, those paper bags of stuff finally became an eye sore to my hubby. He cleared the bags of stuff, cleaned it thoroughly and waited patiently for me to start using again. Months down the road, I am currently preggie. Recently, I started hanging stuff on my Ellipitical trainer again :faint: Bad habits die hard :spank:
