Spin bikes are a great way to increase your fitness and burn calories fast. Get your sweat on and burn calories while sitting down, the spin bike is a great option for those looking to get on top of their cardio goals fast. Cost effective and with a small foot print the spin bike is a popular machine for many.
When looking to buy a spin bike it is important to look for quality and what works for your body. All spin bikes will come with the basic adjustment of seat height up and down, although, a regular spinner should not just stop there when deciding what is the right bike for them. Being able to adjust the handles bars up and down as well as forward and back is ideal to achieve the correct ergonomic riding position. This can also be assisted with positioning the seat forward and backwards. Ideally a 4-way adjustable bike would be a confident purchase to ensure the bike can be fitted to your needs.
Most spin bikes will come with either a lever or turn dial nob to adjust the resistance on the fly wheel. There really is no right or wrong when it comes to what is better and often personal preference plays a big part. The positioning of the nob or lever can also change depending on the bike although the majority will have the option to adjust the resistance on the handlebars to just below.
Next to consider is the fly wheel, simply put the heavier the fly wheel the more controlled and smooth the ride will feel. Fly wheels can be placed at either the front or the back of the bike, with the height of the wheel varying. Generally, the heavier the fly wheel the better quality the bike is as most commercial grade spin bikes have a fly wheel that is around 2 or more kilo’s heavier.
