Let's Get Physical #6: Stationary Bike-O-Rama
Was there a house without one of these things in the 1970s? I wonder if anyone actually rode them. My parents had a stationary bike in their bedroom my whole childhood, but I'm not sure if anyone got on it once. It was a useful place to hang laundry, but not a very inspiring piece of exercise equipment.
The stationary bike actually was invented in the mid 1700s, but it was the successive waves of fitness mania that swept this country during the 60s, 70s and 80s that landed millions of these things into our homes.
You're asking yourself, "A whole post on stationary bikes? Really?". Hey, we cover the whole enchilada at Retrospace. In fact, there's nothing I'd like more than a gallery of exercycles from yesteryear. Bring it.
Yeeeowwch!! Better wear a cup when on this contraption - that stationary bike looks painful!
This is amusing looking. It almost looks as if she's powering the starboard engine! (thanks to compound eye for that observation).
Why they felt they needed the stationary bikes to have an actual inflatable tire with spokes is beyond me. I love how this model thought to wear the bedazzled hip scarf for the occasion.
Who would'a thought a stationary bike could be a chick magnet, but here's proof. Or maybe it's those striped tube socks that the babes find irresistable.
Get ready for a calvalcade of catalog babes on vintage exercycles.... damn, I hate the term "exercycles", and I hate "stationary bike" as well. Let's lay a little Gap Band/Snoop Dogg lingo on it and try again...
