What I Like Ablout BodyCraft SPX Club Indoor Cycling Bike

As regards to its positive characteristics, this BodyCraft Bike is pretty sturdy and has a heavy-duty built frame that ensures high durability. The operation of the belt drive is quite noiseless, making it perfect for utilizing in homes.

The Velo saddle is extremely comfortable and assures long-lasting use. Incorporated Safety Knob is within easy reach and allows precise adjustments. The best thing here is that the Emergency ‘Stop’ control comes handy whenever you want to immediately halt the cycling.

Patented Friction-Brake resistance is smooth and heavyweight flywheel provides great stability. Hence, you can worry-freely use it for standup as well as seated cycling routines. Adjustable handlebar and seat accommodate most of the body sizes of users.

This Club-quality spin bike is a great value for money and perfect to be used for low-impact workouts, both by beginners as well as pro spinners.

What I Didn’t Like

Concerning its negative aspects, BodyCraft SPX does not come with a Cycle Computer that designates your workout metrics, you have to buy this accessory separately which adds to the total cost.

That’s not all, the optionally provided Computer provides heart rate readouts, but for that, you have to purchase separate chest strap as well. Also, it does come all included with SPD pedals; you have to purchase it separately if required.

The total weight of the product seems to be quite heavy, so it might be strenuous for you to maneuver the product all by yourself. SPX Bike has pedals with just toe caging; you have to separately buy the clip-in type of toe straps if desired.

Moreover, there are no markings provided that denote the resistance level of the bike, making it hard for the user to figure out its adjustment. Although it is not a very big deal, but the drive assembly has a plastic cover, which might be unlikeable for some users.

Final Words

BodyCraft SPX Indoor Cycling Spin Bike is a well-built, high-end and robustly designed gear that is perfect for low-impact cardio workouts. In terms of quality and durability, this bike comprises of some amazing power-packed features that deliver superior performance with quiet and smooth functioning.
