  • SMOOTH OPERATION: Each step is easy thanks to the belt-drive system and the 3.52 lbs flywheel.
  • THIS MINI EXERCISE BIKE IS EASY TO STORE AND USE UNDER A DESK OR TABLE AS IT MEASURES 20.5 INCHES LONG AND 10.5 INCHES TALL. Take the machine in your hands using the incorporated handgrip. You can take it anywhere because it just weighs a little over 19 pounds.
  • MAGNETIC RESISTANCE: Increase the level of exercise difficulty by cycling through 8 levels of magnetic tension in a couple of seconds. Every level makes it progressively tougher to complete a stride, increasing the number of calories you can burn.
  • When you utilize this machine at desk height, you may change up your workout. As you pedal ahead with your arms, contract the muscles in your upper body.

Even while the Sunny Health and Fitness Magnetic Mini Exercise Bike isn’t the best cycling desk, it does have a few advantages over its rivals. We mention things like its strong steel structure or its comparatively lightweight (21 pounds). It also has an LCD display that shows calories, time, speed, distance, and other information that many users could find useful. We have reservations about using this unit under your desk, despite the advantages. To be sure of the product watch

Elliptical Beats Mini Exercise Bike for Desk Use

We have to deduct some points from this small exercise bike right away because the pedals move in a circular pattern. Compared to an elliptical, the circular action is harder on the knees. Additionally, it lifts your knees, increasing the likelihood that you will bang them against the bottom of your desk. On the market for cycle desks, you can get ellipticals, which keep your knees lower and deliver less strain than the circular pedal motion. Check out our reviews of the FitDesk or the Cubii, for example.

It’s true that using an adjustable-height desk can help with some of this. You might be able to establish an optimal working position where your knees can move freely by altering the height of your desk and chair. However, we strongly advise reading our primer, How to Set Up an Ergonomically Proper Desk Cycle, before you try anything of the type. You’ll receive advice on how to arrange your workspace to accommodate a bike desk while avoiding frequent pitfalls.

Desk-Cycle Problems

Sunny’s little exercise bike is difficult to place beneath a desk due to its pedal height, which is taller than typical.
The Sunny Mini Exercise Bike’s user evaluations on websites like Amazon generally attest to how challenging it is to use the machine below a desk. Particularly taller users complain about inadequate knee clearance. The pedal height of the machine is 12.5 inches, which raises the knees 2.5 inches higher than, for example, the 3D Innovations DeskCycle. Some customers report that they can get it to operate under the desk, but they have difficulties focusing while pedaling. No matter what we do, most people find walking more natural than pedaling. Since we were young children, we have been walking, and it comes naturally to us. Think about a treadmill desk, for instance. Making the following move doesn’t need any deliberate effort; we just do it. But focusing is necessary to press a pedal. See our article, Treadmill Desks vs. Desk Cycles: How They Compare, for additional information on the effects of each on typing speed and cognitive performance.

Positive: It’s as light as a feather

The Sunny is simple to move thanks to a handy handle.
The weight of the Magnetic Mini Exercise Bike gives it a clear edge over its rivals. It weighs a featherweight of 21 pounds, which, despite sounding more than normal compared to other devices we’ve examined in this category, is actually rather light. Moving the unit frequently or avoiding adding weight lifting to your daily office routine will be made easier thanks to a handy carrying handle, which makes it easier to move the unit to and from below your desk.

Unfortunately, as with most things, there is a drawback. On the ground, the Sunny Exercise Bike is less stable. A surface that the device can grasp, such as carpet, is required, according to some users who say that the unit slides when used, especially at higher tension levels.

Other drawbacks stated in online verified user reviews include a shorter pedal stroke than a standard bike and an occasional knocking noise that can reportedly be fixed by briefly cycling backward.

The Lesson

Finally, the Sunny Health and Fitness Magnetic Mini Exercise Bike is a reliable piece of equipment with certain competitive benefits, such as its weight and durable steel frame. But an elliptical machine that has a lower profile and is easy on the knees is preferable for riding under the desk. There are many happy customers who utilize this unit under the desk with some success, even though we advise choosing one of these other devices (see our Desk Cycle and Bike Desk Comparison Review). As we previously noted, doing it correctly necessitates paying close attention to how ergonomically your workspace is set up.


For fun, our review team designed what we think is the first sit-stand-walk-pedal workstation in history. Visit our Quad-Modal Office Fitness DreamStation blog post for more information. To maximize activity throughout the workday, we combined a Cubii with an iMovR Everest Dual-Tray desk, an iMovR ThermoTread GT office treadmill, a Tempo TreadTop Office Chair, and an EcoLast TreadTop Anti-Fatigue Mat.
