    The Ciclotte (www.ciclotte.com), a design-driven stationary bike that arrived in the United States this summer from Milan, Italy, is one piece of in-home exercise equipment you will not want to use as a clothing rack; it is too attractive to be concealed under laundry. Built from carbon fiber and steel, the $10,000 bike employs an epicycloidal pedal design that is as compact as it is efficient. Ciclotte’s four-gear system offers a range of resistance levels and replicates on-road riding, while its Alcantara-swathed saddle and touchscreen display make the bike comfortable and easy to ride.
