This machine is comfortable and has a fully adjustable seat with great lumbar support. The step through frame makes it easy to get on and off. The 10-pound flywheel offers fluid motion. Heart rate monitors are in the comfortable handlebar grips. This machine has a weight capacity of 275 pounds.
If you’re having a problem choosing between an upright or recumbent exercise bike you’ll find that the Horizon RC-30 is a comfortable choice. Recumbent bikes offer full economic lumbar support and cause no strain to the arms, neck or shoulders which are a common problem when riding upright exercise bikes. You have to choose a machine that is comfortable or you will be loath to work out and you will have wasted your money.
Another good thing about recumbent exercise bikes is they have a small footprint and can offer an excellent cardio workout at home for both beginners and more experienced users.

Horizon Fitness RC-30 Recumbent Exercise Bike User Review
I was not sure when choosing an exercise bike if I should get a recumbent or upright machine. I opted for a recumbent machine because of the lumbar support. I had used an upright machine regularly at the gym but noticed that I was waking up with a sore back and stiff neck.
My only complaint about the Horizon Fitness RC-30 recumbent Exercise Bike is that my husband can’t use it. He weighs over the 275 pounds weight limit. He expressed no interest in using an exercise machine before I purchased this – if I’d known I would have bought a different model. He’ll just have to get his own!
The Horizon RC-30 doesn’t take up a lot of space in my spare bedroom. I like that I can monitor my heart rate and get other useful information as I exercise. All in all for a mid-priced recumbent exercise bike I am very pleased with the results I’m getting.
If you’re under 275 pounds and wants a smooth cardio workout the Horizon Fitness RC-30 Recumbent Exercise Bike compares very favorably with other much higher priced machines.
