If you are looking for a new exercise bike for your home gym, then you might want to consider leikefitness indoor cycling bike.
In this review, we will take a closer look at the white model. So far the manufacturer makes only two models, black and white and the difference is that the black model uses friction resistance, while the white uses magnetic resistance and also the respective flywheels have different weights. Since we have reviewed a lot of friction-resistance exercise bikes, it doesn’t hurt to add another magnetic-resistance model to our collection.
Leikefitness is one of the newer home gym brands and so far they don’t have many machines out there, but in regard to those that are out, the reviews are pretty positive. Let’s find out if it’s indeed one of the better bikes available on the market.
Features of leikefitness Indoor Cycling Bike (White)
The frame of the bike is made of thickened steel, which supports 300 lbs (136 kg) of weight and is equipped with a 13 lbs (5.9 kg) flywheel made of aluminum alloy materials (just for the reference, the black version comes with 24.25 lbs [11 kg] steel flywheel).
The narrow base of the bike is equipped with 4 balancing knobs to make the bike stable on all kinds of floor types. Base is also equipped with transportation wheels for easy portability.
As we have already mentioned, the white version comes with a magnetic resistance system, which makes very little noise. The resistance is continuous and can be adjusted via a conveniently located tension knob. By pushing the tension knob, the bike comes to an immediate stop (emergency brake).
The racing seat comes with a hole in the middle so it offers better heat dissipation and more air permeability. It’s adjustable vertically and horizontally and according to the manufacturer, it will support user height from 3’11” to 6’3”.
Multi-grip handlebars provide 3 different arm rest positions and are equipped with hand pulse monitors, so you can check your heart rate. Handlebars are also vertically adjustable.
The provided LCD monitor shows all the basic stats like time, distance, speed, scan, calories burned and heart rate.
Leikefitness indoor cycling bike uses standard tread soft pedals with moderate tightness.
The assembled dimensions are 45.28” x 19.69 “ x 41.73” (115 x 50 x 106 cm) and the net weight is 68.2 lbs (31 kg).
That sums up the features.
Sturdy and Stylish Indeed
Most verified users agree that the assembly is quite straightforward. With the provided instruction manual, tools and diagrams the assembly is solo-able. You should be done in under 60 minutes even if you are not a techie person.
The design of the bike is quite modern and stylish, personally, I like it a lot but that’s just my opinion, maybe you are into something more retro. The bike is pretty sturdy and should hold the supported weight just fine.
Thanks to the magnetic resistance system, the leikefitness indoor cycling bike is very quiet. If you plan on watching TV while exercising, then you are good to go with this bike.
As we have already mentioned above, the seat is racing in design and is pretty good in regard to air permeability, but several users reported that it gets a bit uncomfortable after longer exercise periods. However, this comes down to personal preferences.
The LCD monitor is pretty standard – it’s very simple and shows only one data stat at a time, so you have to switch from one to another. This is not a tragedy and it’s quite common among affordable exercise bikes, but I always prefer a multi-purpose LCD just for the sake of convenience.
Pros and Cons
Let’s summarize what we have learned into pros and cons.
Is leikefitness Indoor Cycling Bike Worth It?
Our rating: 4.4 / 5
As long as you do not mind a rather simple LCD and lightweight flywheel, the bike is definitely worth considering. It’s affordable and quiet, the design is very stylish and the frame is quite sturdy. However, don’t forget that the manufacturer does not recommend the bike to users that are taller than 6’3”.
