Besides treadmills and ellipticals, there is nothing better for cardio like a good stationary bike. But what are the features of a good bike? Is it the frame? Or perhaps noise? Or maybe pedals? I’d like to think it’s all of those things and more combined. Cyclace exercise bike is generally considered a good stationary bike. Let’s find out if the rumors are true.
The old version of this particular model has got quite a success in recent years. The updated 2019 version should address most major and minor issues the previous model had, so let’s see if that’s indeed the case.
Features of Cyclace Exercise Bike
The bike’s triangular frame is made of thickened steel and equipped with 36 lbs flywheel with belt driven system. Thanks to the included transportation wheels the bike can be easily moved around.
The resistance can be adjusted via a knob and the resistance bar can be used for immediate stop.
The multi-grip handlebars allow for various positions to place your hands on and are adjustable in height. Seat is cushioned and adjustable horizontally and vertically. Thanks to the adjustability the bike is suited for people up to 6’5”.
The provided LCD display let’s you monitor and track stats like distance, speed, calories burned, time and odometer and you can also put your phone on a holder next to it.
Maximum supported weight is set to 330 lbs (149.7 kg). Cyclace also offers 12-month part warranty.
That should summarize the main and secondary features.
Is It Worth Your Money?
Let’s start with the assembly. It’s pretty straightforward and altogether easy. It shouldn’t take anyone more than 30 minutes. The manufacturer also adds extra screws for each part, in case some of them are damaged.
The frame of the Cyclace exercise bike is sturdy as advertised. I believe this is partly because of the well-thought frame triangle design. I have no problem believing the bike can support 330 lbs.
The combination of 36lbs flywheel and the belt driven system indeed does the job. The ride is smooth, quiet and the tension is easily adjustable.
Thanks to the adjustable cushioned seat you can find the most comfortable position quite easily. This is also a non-racing seat and is very comfortable as well. Several users mentioned the cushioning could be better, but it all comes down to how sensitive your butt is. 🙂
LCD display is pretty standard and could show more than one stat at a time, since this kind of display is very basic. I guess you could use your phone with some advanced apps for that though.
Multi-grip handlebars are well designed and comfortable. There isn’t much to add here. Most people will definitely enjoy the extra space for tablet or cell phone.
