Do you have a question about the Sprint GB1 Indoor Cycle?
If you can't find the answer that you're looking for below then please click here and ask us a question. If we're online we'll give you an answer immediately, otherwise we'll try our best to respond on the same working day.
Cycle Specific Questions Q. What the minimum/maximum recommended user height for this bike? A. This indoor cycle can be used by anyone from 5ft3 (160cm) to 6ft6 (198cm). This is because the position of the seat and handlebars can be adjusted horizontally and vertically, so most people can find a comfortable position.
Q. I'm a beginner - is this bike suitable? A. The bike is designed for up to 5-7 hours use per week, which is usually enough for beginners. It has all the features that you need to get cycling.
Q. Can the seat be swapped for a normal bike seat? A. Yes. It's a standard bike seat fitting so you can attach a different seat if you want to.
Q. I'm looking at a different bike at the same price but it's a chain drive. What's best? A. You're always better choosing a belt drive bike unless you specifically want the feel of the chain - there's less maintenance and generally belt drive bikes last longer.
Q. What's the size of the flywheel? A. The Sprint GB1 has a 18kg flywheel - you'll find that this is higher than most other bikes at this price.
Q. I'm 15st - is this bike suitable? A. Yes. The maximum user weight on this bike is 105kg (approx 16.5st).
Q. Do the pedals take SPD cleats? A. Not as standard but we can supply the pedals as an optional extra.
Q. Can I use my heart rate belt with this bike? A. No - the GB1 isn't Polar compatible.
General Questions Q. Is this bike difficult to assemble? A. No - instructions are included and we cover the build in our review of the bike as well. Just pay particular attention to attaching the pedals correctly.
Q. Can you assemble the bike for me? A. Yes. We can deliver the bike fully assembled. We will pack/wrap the bike for transportation but can't accept liability for any damage that is caused whilst the bike is in transit. Alternatively, we can arrange for a technician to visit your home to build the bike for you at an additional cost (please ask for current prices).
Q. Do I need a mat underneath the bike? A. We recommend that you have a mat underneath your indoor cycle to protect the floor but it's entirely up to you.
Q. Do you sell second hand or refurbished bikes? A. Generally not. Unfortunately it's not cost effective for us to refurbish indoor cycles to a standard that would be in keeping with our reputation. To fully refurbish an indoor cycle, the crank; crank arms; flywheel bearings; drive belt; pedals; seat and handlebars all need to be replaced. In addition, the frame needs to be checked for corrosion and distortion. In doing this work to the correct standard, the price of a fully refurbished indoor bike would be about the same as a new one. It's for this reason that we don't normally offer refurbished or second hand bikes for sale, and we strongly recommend that you fully understand how a bike has been refurbished before buying one.
Here are the customer reviews of the Sprint GB1 Indoor Cycle
Great value for money I am an experienced cyclist and regularly use the spin bikes at the gym. I did a lot of research before I bought this and agree with the reviews that I read. This is a very good bike, well built, smooth and great value for money. The heavy fly wheel makes a difference and would thouroughly recommend (09/08/2014) Steve - Aylesbury
Our Reply: Fantastic - thanks for your review Steve
Excellent value for money I am absolutely delighted with the Sprint Fitness GB1. It arrived at the appointed time and I have been using it everyday since. I am recovering from an accident and am using the bike as part of my rehabilitation. It runs smoothly, difficulty is easily adjustable and I would recommend it to anyone (21/07/2014) -

Our Reply: Thanks for your review Tim
Great bike, brilliant even for the price! After spending a few days looking for something affordable but good, I found a couple that came close until I found the Sprint GB1 which I have been enjoying for almost a couple of weeks now and think it is great! The ordering and delivery process was handled very well - would definitely order again (25/06/2014) Emma - Essex
Our Reply: Thanks Emma - in our opinion the GB1 is the best bike that you can buy for under £300
Pleased with this purchase. Recommended A solid piece of kit. Installed on a wooden floor and is going nowhere despite 15 yr old rugby player giving it some stick. Very easy to assemble - funky tool provided. 10 yr old daughter just fits so all the family get a go. It does need space and is not a toy. Delivery service professional. (24/06/2014) Rob - Cardiff
Our Reply: Thanks for your comments Rob - great news that the GB1 is to your liking
Great I am so pleased with this purchase. I have started using it and can already feel a difference. If you are thinking of buying an exercise bike - think no further than this company. Delivery was swift and I was given a two hour delivery window. Happy Days! (08/06/2014) -

Great bike Bought to supplement spin classes. Easy to assemble. Good service from Indoor cycles, not to keen on the delivery company though! (07/03/2014) karen - West Sussex
Our Reply: Thanks for your review.
Great quality for the price I talked through my needs with Andy and decided on this model. Assembly was very straightforward and it is stable even on carpet. I might need to pad the seat but I haven't ridden for many years so I might adjust to it! (20/02/2014) Patrick Aiken - Essex
Our Reply: Thanks for your review Patrick
Great value After much searching and a couple of conversations with the guys at Indoor cycles they pointed me in the right direction for my needs. Very pleased with the bike it was exactly as described, delivered on time and really easy to assemble. great bit of kit :) (17/02/2014) Peter - Watford

Brilliant delivery service. Really good delivery service, very pleased with the bike but find the seat a little bit hard! (12/02/2014) Dal - Weymouth
Our Reply: Thanks for your comments - please note that it's a standard bike seat so can be swapped for a padded one!!
Exellent value. Good well made bit of kit. Easy to assemble. Fully adjustable to fit me (tall) and my wife (short). Very quiet operation and it looks smart too. The toe traps are a wee bit small and fiddly, but I am sure these will fit eventually. Minor problem with display jack plug, now ok. Well worth the money. (27/01/2014) Mike Hollis - North Norfolk.
Our Reply: Thanks for your comments Mike - you should get many years use out of the Sprint GB1
Good product and great delivery service The bike seems excellent for the price and was really easy to assemble. It is certainly solid and it does exactly what I want in terms of exercising. Form follows function indeed. The delivery was fast, friendly and as good as it gets. (29/12/2013) Simon - Solihull

A Good Bike. Easy to put together and a good ride. Ordered as a present just before Christmas and it was delivered within good time. The only negative is that the bike does not have a water bottle holder. (28/12/2013) Stewart - York
Our Reply: Thanks for your comments Stewart - we're looking at adding a water bottle for future models.
Whoever reads this look no further than Indoor Cycles if you are in the market place for a indoor cycle.

Very pleased with the whole experience of buying this bike from Indoor cycling.I did a lot of research on what I should look for in a bike and indoor cycling has the best product for the best price.There was no hard sell as I spoke to a representative on the phone.The bike has not disappointed me. (04/12/2013) Loraine - London
Our Reply: Thanks Loraine - the Sprint GB1 is the best indoor cycle in the UK for under £300 so we're very confident that you've made the correct choice.
excellent service I'm really pleased that I chose this bike - it was easy to set up, is very quiet and is very smooth (I guess that this is to do with the 18kg flywheel which was recommended). Quick and friendly delivery too. Highly recommended! (14/11/2013) -

Great bike I've been using my bike for just over a week and I'm really pleased with it. I was told over the phone that it was quiet but I didn't realise just how quiet it was - almost silent which is great. It's really comfy and is ideal for my needs - thanks (12/07/2013) Sarah - Chippenham
Our Reply: Thanks Sarah - the GB1 is a great bike for the price
Excellent bike easy to set up, nice to ride and very quiet, the only thing is that it comes not have water bottle holder, would recommend this bike.. (12/07/2013) John - llandovery,wales
Our Reply: Thanks for your comments John - we'll look into providing a water bottle holder with the bike. Pleased that you're happy with it otherwise!!
Great bike I purchased this bike for general fitness. Being new to bikes I wasn't sure what to buy but spoke to the company and they recommended the Sprint gb1 for my £400 budget. It was delivered 2 days later and I'm really pleased. I've used it every day and have started to see results already. Thanks. (02/01/2013) Gayle S - Windsor
Our Reply: Thanks for your comments Gayle - the bike should suit your needs for years to come.
Sprint GB1 spin bike As an experienced spin class trainer I was very sceptical that a bike selling for under £400 would be any good. However, I was pleasantly suprised by the quality of this bike - very sturdy feel even when at high speed/high resistance. Excellent bike for the money - highly recommended (31/12/2012) Danny - Staffordshire
Our Reply: We should add that we asked Danny to trial this bike for us - comments are all his own though!!
