It has adjustable resistance settings, which allows you to adjust your own workout’ intensity in order to reach your individual goals easily and quickly. Plus, the adjustable handlebars and seat are suitable for a range of heights. The firm construction and a 40 lbs flywheel promise a smooth riding experience, no matter you are sitting or standing up and pedaling hard. Are you curious to experience such an awesome bike? Ok, let’s take a closer look at the following part for better guarantee before making a real investment.
What is included in the Bike?
As stated earlier, this bike doesn’t come with a lot of added features, however, what it is currently including is worth your money.
Yeah, this bike comes with no official height restrictions. However, if you are too short, about 5 foot 3 inches, you have some difficulties using it comfortably when pedaling and reaching the handlebars. But do not worry; there is still solution for this. You can adjust the seat post by drilling a hole in it or cutting the bottom off it so that it will slide further down.
The seat is movable, so you can make it into your wanted direction. So by what way? Yeah, just unscrew the adjustment knob then move the seat adjustment bars until you find a hole in the bar in the same line with the shaft, finally lock the adjustment knob as it is actually.
The handlebars are also movable, but you can move it into two directions: up or down. And due to no backward and forward movement like this, users who are shorter will find the bike uncomfortable to use because they have to lean forward too far to reach the handlebars.
Last but not least, as the adjusting process is simple and quick, the bike will be able to work for more than 2 people. Just by adjusting the bike to suit yourself, you can use it.
This bike is 97.2 pounds weight, of which 40 of those pounds belong to the flywheel’s weight. This heavy weight is a recommended feature to an indoor exercise bike for the heavier the flywheel, the smoother the resistance and the better the workout will be. The flywheel also helps to improve the bike’s stability, making sure that you won’t experience any wobbling when working with more intensive sessions. In addition, the resistance are adjustable and the the power is transferred through chain.
Most of the bike’s parts are adjustable, so you will be in less likely to suffer from injuries and strain. Just by adapting the parts to your own height and build, you can enjoy the process with the best comfort ever. Besides, the handlebars include a substantial and thick padding, making it much easier for you to do the gripping, even if your hands are damp. This feature protects you from sore hands after the process.
Speaking about the seat, it is padded, but it is recommended to add an extra gel cover, otherwise, you will feel uncomfortable after some minutes riding the bike.
The bike also allows you to spare your behind and workout out while standing up thanks to the firm pedals which help to support your weight and do not wear out in spite of your riding way.
After long workouts with high intensity, the bike often releases some noise. You can not feel this if you are listening to music or do something noisy.
The pedals have toe cups only. The cups are often located on the small side and easy to replace when necessary for they are standard pedals (the pedal thread size is 9/16) . The cup strap is able to work for different shoe sizes, so let’s feel free if you want to have new shoes or there is someone who is sharing the machine with you.
If you want clip-on pedals, this is possible, just by replacing your wanted pedals with the old ones.
The crank shafts screwed into the pedals are firm and helps to support your weight as you are standing up out of the seat.
If you are disappointed with the fact that the bike doesn’t introduce a computer or console for you to track your workout, you can record, monitor, or set time for your workout, then analyze them and finally, set your own goals. This is not problems to many users but if you find it important, you can buy a separated cycle computer and mount to the bike. Some of our customers reported that they have successfully mounted Cateye Velo 7 Bicycle Computer to the bike, which allows them to track the elapsed time, current/average/max speed, trip/total distance and time, but no burned calories are included. This combination is highly appreciated in the end.
Because the bike is distraction free, it neither comes with any accessories nor has parts which are specifically made for it. This is one of the reasons why the bike is cheap compared to other exercise bikes.
When it comes to accessories, a drink bottle holder is missing thing that many users wish to be included. Many of them solve the problem by putting bottles of drink on their nearest table and they shared that that works well. Some others modified the bike successfully by making holes in the frame for inserting a drink bottle holder which is bought separately. Some even attached a basket to the handlebars.
There aren’t many parts to assemble when it comes to installing the bike for it is delivered in the basic structure and the flywheel are already joined together. Installing other parts, seats, pedals, handlebars and back support won’t take you more than half an hour. Everything is made easy for the necessary tools to join the parts together and a manual with detailed instructions are both available.
This bike is compact and doesn’t occupy too much space ( it is measured 20 inches * 46.5 inches (W/L). Although it is heavy (92.2 lbs), you can move it easily, using the small red transport wheels at the front of the bike. Let’s keep the bike to your storage place until you want to use it again. This storage convenience is especially helpful to those who are using the bike in their living room and they don’t want to keep it there when you are relaxing or to those who have modest storage space.
