It's one thing to have your own home gym (or spare room to house your gym equipment), but sometimes the only place to put your treadmill or exercise bike is smack in the middle of your living room. That can create an unsightly eye sore.
That wouldn't be the case if you sprung for an exercise bike that looks more like modern art than gym equipment. Roberto Cavalli, the high-end, luxury celebrity designer favorite, has launched an exercise bike collection with Ciclotte. Like Ciclotte's other sleek, minimalist bikes, these machines seem more at home in a museum than your sweaty local gym but boast all the calorie-burning features you'd expect from a serious exercise bike — four gears for spinning workouts, ergonomic design, and a lightweight but durable frame made from carbon, steel, and fiberglass.
The Roberto Cavalli Ciclotte collection comes in six colors including fuchsia, gold, and silver, but my favorites are the ones with the crazy animal print accents, like the one above — a perfect complement to the designer's forthcoming gymwear collection, also shown above. No word on the price yet, but most Ciclotte bikes run around $11,000. What do you think: better-looking than a regular bike, or too odd for your house?
