The MEVEM indoor cycling bike promises an easy to use and maintain bike that has a nice quiet flywheel and belt drive. This makes it ideal for indoor exercise because it won’t disturb the neighbors or anyone else in the house. So, does it live up to the promises and what can you expect from this neat little cycling package?
Features of MEVEM Indoor Cycling Bike
The very first thing you’ll note about the MEVEM indoor cycling bike is that the flywheel is so modest. At only 18 pounds, it won’t be winning any size awards, but this does mean that the bike has a smaller space footprint and it will be quieter during use.
One of the hazards of having any exercise bike is having to move them around. They are generally very heavy things and it can be an exercise in frustration just moving from one room to another. The MEVEM indoor cycling bike wins here on two fronts: it’s smaller than a lot of the competition, and it features two front wheels so that it can easily be tipped and wheeled around on flat surfaces.
What’s great about magnetic resistance bikes is that they tend to last longer and have far less maintenance issues. The magnets can add as much or as little resistance to your workout as you need.
The MEVEM indoor cycling bike features magnets that are encapsulated in a plate near the flywheel. If you want to increase the resistance of your workout, the magnets pull closer to the flywheel, providing greater resistance. The further away the plate is from the flywheel, the easier the bike is to ride and the less resistance.
A cycling system that uses a magnetic resistance system like this also tends to be quieter and more stable. As the magnetic plate doesn’t touch the flywheel, movements are smooth and not jerky like on other indoor bike models.
Stylistically, the MEVEM is quite compact. I think this is a very good looking product and would likely look good anywhere in a home.
Being lighter though, there is possibly going to be some issue with maximum weight restrictions. The MEVEM will handle up to 280 pounds, but anything more than this and you’ll need to look for another product. It’s worth bearing the maximum weight restriction whenever you’re looking for an exercise bike for indoor use like this.
Likewise, a person six feet and over might find this particular model a little bit too difficult to use comfortably. Its smaller size footprint means that larger people are always going to be challenged and this may make the bike unstable or wobbly in use.
As with many other models, there’s an LCD readout that displays speed, distance, calories burned, and so on. There is also an aluminum bottle holder just in case you get thirsty on the ride. If you want to listen to music, there’s a phone holder too. These are generally pretty standard features on most indoor cycles these days, but it’s still worth knowing that they are there.
What Are People Saying?
In general, many customers really enjoy the fact that this indoor bike is so small and compact. They find that it can easily fit nearly anywhere in the home.
Similarly, the flywheel, magnetic resistance system, and belt drive are so quiet that many people love the fact that they can use it in areas of the home where noise might otherwise be a big issue.
The biggest gripe that some customers had was that this bike is not so comfortable for people six feet and over. Those with longer than average legs may even have an issue adjusting the height of the seat and handlebars to a comfortable level.
