A co-worker got one of these, or one very like it (same brand, I am pretty sure) at a thrift store and it works well, and is nice & quiet. I'm thinking of getting one for myself.

My coworker has one from Walmart. He uses it at his desk during the day. He raves about it so much that I am planning to get one for my husband for Christmas. I checked walmart's website, and it looks like they carry a variety of them. Some have electronic displays and others are pretty simple.

No suggestions, but I'm really interested in this product. I never knew these things existed. I'm a sedentary person (I sit at my desk all day, except for walking to the cafeteria for lunch, which I bring back to my desk) and this is a product that I think I could really use.

I appreciate the links, and OP? Please let me know which one you chose and how it works out for you! ;D

I have one that I bought for mom. It works pretty well.

I got this one: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Gold-s-Gym-Folding-Upper-Lower-Body-Cycle-with-Monitor/17299064?wmlspartner=wlpa&adid=22222222227000996906&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=40331800832&wl4=pla-78293950232&wl5=9060590&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=online&wl12=17299064&wl13=&veh=sem

So far so good. Its pretty bare bones but it fits right in front of a chair so I've been using it while watching tv or working and if I like it enough I will bring it to work. I'll let you all know in a few weeks.

I was looking for an under desk elliptical. My nurse friend and massage therapist both recommended that I'd probably like this better, so I ordered it last night.  https://www.amazon.com/HOVR-Under-Desk-Leg-Swing/dp/B07495H1ZH/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1511539378&sr=8-2&keywords=hovr

Oh my that's brilliant! I had hip surgery in September and they have me doing the bike at PT but I don't have one at home. This might be a good thing for me to get :)

Update on this product. This might be the single best purchase my little fidgety-self has ever made. I can swing, pedal, do circles, do toe and heel flexes. It is fabulous. It did take some getting used to and took a few tries to get the height/distance set to my liking, but once I did--perfection.

Dazi inspired this update:

I've been using the portable mini cycle for about three weeks and it has been great. I use it 30 minutes to 2 hours each day, which is the most I've exercised in years and I've already started to notice some results which is great. It's easy to work on my laptop and just cycle, or when I'm watching tv. I'm even planning on buying a second one for my office.
