Exercise cycle with locking mechanism

Image Number 5 for United States Patent #5014980.

The invention provides an exercise cycle with a stationary frame, a seat, a pedal mechanism, and a rotating wheel. Resistance is offered to the rotating wheel by an adjustable brake assembly. A handle bar assembly is pivotally mounted to the frame to move back and forth toward and away from the user positioned on the seat. A locking mechanism is associated with the handle bar assembly, so that with the locking mechanism in a first position, the handle bar assembly is precluded from pivoting. With the locking mechanism in a second position, the handle bar assembly is allowed to pivot toward and away from the user. A resistance mechanism is also associated with the handle bar assembly.
