Exercise bikes have been around for decades, they are everyone’s go-to fitness machine when they want to lose some weight, but don’t fancy spending a fortune on a treadmill.
Recently, there has been a huge improvement in the standard of exercise bikes, with spin bikes becoming more and more popular as well as high-end bikes that simulate real cycling conditions.
The Yosuda Indoor Cycling bike is one of the best budget stationary bikes out there. In this review we will explain why.
What We Like About the Yosuda Indoor Cycling Bike
The first thing that we really like is the price! This is such an inexpensive indoor stationary bike compared to similar products that are on the market.
This is a big deal, because one of the biggest barriers for most people is finding an affordable stationary bike.
Does this mean that the Yosuda Indoor Cycling Bike is poor quality? No, emphatically not.
While it is certainly not going to be as durable as a top of the range model, it is still seriously good.
This bike has a 35lb flywheel, fully adjustable resistance, an easily adjustable seat, and a top quality digital monitor.
The cage pedals are clearly inspired by commercial spin bikes (like you’d see in a spin class), and they will really help to prevent your feet from slipping while you ride.
The bike has transportation wheels too, meaning that once you’ve finished your session you can wheel the bike away.
The bike utilises a heavy steel frame, which is covered in an anti-rust powdered coating.
The bike has a max user weight of 270lbs. You are also eligible for free parts replacement for a period of 12 months, which can really come in handy.
The bike even has a tablet mount so that you can rest your iPad (or similar tablet) on it and watch tv while you cycle.
What We Don’t Like About the Yosuda Indoor Cycling Bike
Any complaints that we have about this bike should be tempered with the fact that it is a budget-priced bike.
It’s no use complaining that it isn’t as good as the $2,000 bike that we tried a while back, because these bikes come from completely different ends of the spectrum.
The only issues are quite minor, the iPad mount is a little annoying because the iPad ends up covering the LCD monitor.
There is a bit of a noise issue where a bit of plastic rubs up against the belt, which can make a bit of friction-related racket.
The bike isn’t going to be as durable as a bike 5x the price. Things like that. But there are no real flaws with the bike. Just little aggravations.
Even if this bike was twice the price, it would still be a good bike. As it is, for the price it is, this bike is fantastic. Well worth investing in. Sure, there are better bikes out there. But not with this price tag!
