In 1796, a “medical electrician” by the name of Francis Lowndes created a machine called the Gymnasticon, essentially a couple of wheels that turn with the power of your legs and arms. In the past 200-plus years since, humanity has made great strides in stationary bike technology. The best bikes can fold up, fit under your desk, and provide studio-style workouts.
