Get Fit With Super Nintendo Rarity 'Exertainment Life Cycle & Mountain Bike Rally/Speed Racer'

Get-Fit-With-Super-Nintendo-Rarity-Exertainment-Life-Cycle-Mountain-Bike-Rally-Speed-RacerCast aside your Wii Fit Balance Boards... Actually, clear your entire living room! It's time to get fit with the Super Nintendo. The incredibly rare Nintendo Exertainment Life Cycle exercise bike (with a mounted TV & console) and accompanying game cartridge has surfaced on eBay, but that slim-line 16-bit figure will come at a cost.

The Life Cycle was an exercise bike released in the US which offered compatibility with the Super Nintendo console. The idea behind the Life Cycle was rather simple, it allowed you to decide how to pass the time exercising, by allowing you to either watch TV, follow fitness programs or even play video games - all whilst pedalling away the pounds.

Two specially designed games were released for this fitness system, the Exertainment Mountain Bike Rally and Speed Racer (based upon the Anime of the same name). The first of these two was available on its own, while the the latter came bundled with the other. Needless to say both of these game cartridges are considerable rarities today, fetching huge figures on eBay when they surface.

Funnily enough many of these exercise bike systems were installed in gyms around the US, a fact which happens to lead us to the auction currently on eBay. One avid Nintendo collector has recently listed his Life Cycle 9XS exercise bike and accompanying game cartridge on eBay. As fantastic as this piece of hardware is, its desirability coupled with its extreme rarity only adds to the price tag - one which happens to be sat at $10,000.

Nevertheless be sure to check out this Super Nintendo obscurity and unusual collectible.
