Cyclace Stationary Exercise Bike Reviewed

Besides treadmills and ellipticals, there is nothing better for cardio than a good stationary bike. But what are the features of a good bike? Is it the frame? Or perhaps noise level? Or maybe the pedal system?

I’d like to think it’s all of those things and more combined, and that's why the Cyclace exercise bike is considered a well-rounded cardio machine. 

The old version of this particular model has had quite the success in recent years. The updated 2019 version is even better since it addresses some of the minor complaints relating to the previous model. But is it worth the money? Let's find out!

Frame, Construction & Tension System

The bike’s triangular frame is made of thickened steel and designed with a 36 pound flywheel within its belt driven system. Cyclace claims that the bike can hold up to 330 pounds, and I have no doubts about that. 

The frame is supported by four balance regulators for added stability on a variety of different surfaces and the infinite friction resistance can be adjusted via a knob. This knob is also designed with an immediate stop feature for emergency situations.

Comfort & Adjustability

This bike is fully adjustable, and therefore works well for anyone between 5'1" and 6'5". The contoured cushioned seat can be adjusted 4 ways (fore, aft, up, and down) and the PVC-covered multi-grip handlebars can be adjusted 2 ways (up and down).

The pedal design is fairly standard, but I do like the cage-style straps that protect my feet from slipping.

Other Bike Features

The bike's simple LCD display let’s you monitor and track stats like distance, speed, calories burned, time and odometer. It's positioned on top of a media tray that can hold a tablet or phone. 

Thanks to the included transportation wheels the bike can be easily moved around, even though it weighs close to 90 pounds.

Overall Impressions of the Cyclace Indoor Bike

Cyclace Exercise Bike Stationary Stats

Let’s start with the assembly. Putting this bike together is pretty straightforward and altogether easy. Most of the bike comes preassembled, so it shouldn’t take anyone more than 30 minutes.

The manufacturer includes extra screws for each part, in case some of them are damaged, which isn't something you come across every day.

The frame of the Cyclace exercise bike is sturdy as advertised, and in my opinion, it's all thanks to the well-thought frame triangle design

The combination of the 36-pound flywheel and the belt driven system means that this bike rides smooth and quietly. Even when I cranked the resistance all the way up, I felt no shakiness whatsoever.

Thanks to the 4-way adjustable cushioned seat, you can find the most comfortable position based on your height quite easily. It uses a non-racing seat that offers a lot more cushion than many other bikes I've come across in this price point. While there have been some complaints from other reviewers, I have only good things to say about the seat system.

Just like the seat, the multi-grip handlebars are well designed and comfortable. There isn’t much to add here. The media tray is directly connected to the handlebars, so it's easy to put your phone or tablet front and center while you ride. 

Even though I don't have any specific complaints about the LCD display, it's worth noting that it's extremely basic. It shows only one stat at a time, which is understandable considering its small size. Luckily, there are plenty of advanced fitness apps that you can download to your phone or tablet, and chances are, you'll want to.

Would I recommend getting the Cyclace exercise bike? Yes!

Even considering the minor flaws - such as the basic display - this bike offers some amazing value, especially considering the fair price. It has everything you can expect and more from a non-commercial stationary bike.
