The secret is the 40-pound flywheel that delivers sufficient aggressive inertia to create a fluid, smooth 360° pedal stroke. That smoothness is what differentiates an indoor cycling bike from an indoor exercise bike.
Easy on the Body
Your hips, knees, and ankles will not miss the more rigid, vertical pumping stroke that the common indoor exercise bike is known for. Rather, you will enjoy less impact and less wear and tear on your joints, ligaments, and tendons. Clearly this makes for a more healthy cycling session.
Additionally, the comfortable seat and versatile handlebars are fully adjustable. This allows the rider a wide range of options that will vary the stress placed on the body and that greatly improve comfort.
Quiet, Safe, Easy to Assemble
The Sunny Health and Fitness Pro Indoor Cycling Bike features a chain drive mechanism. It has quickly become known as one of the most dependable and smoothest operating mechanisms in the world of indoor cycling bikes. This means much less noise when you are cycling.
The in-box pedals include toe clips and foot straps for rider comfort and safety. This model ships with clipless pedals, but you may attach any standard pedal, including clip pedals, if you desire. The crank pedal assembly allows for a quick and painless conversion if you prefer to use the clip elements in your cycling shoes.
Users report excellent durability and few problems. This bike doesn’t require any special maintenance. Ease of assembly and quality of parts makes this a favorite amongst the stationary bike crowd.
While mechanically simple, it is also mechanically sound. The absence of superfluous features made it possible for the manufacturer to put the money into sturdiness (see latest prices at amazon.com).
