The Ciclotte Stationary Bike Inspires You to Work Out, Pen a Sci-Fi Novel

The Ciclotte

The home gym is usually something tucked away in the spare bedroom or the basement, but the Ciclotte stationary bike is that rare piece of exercise equipment one would proudly display front and center in the living room. Designed by Luca Schieppati, the futuristic exercise machine takes its form from the Ciclo, a concept bike so sweet the Milan Design Museum keeps it in its private collection.

Constructed of steel, carbon and glass fiber materials, and a magnetized main wheel, the Ciclotte uses an epicycloid crank system and a magnetic field to generate thigh-steeling resistance. Part futuristic art installation, part home gym, it can be yours for just $10,700.
