Our Review of the Sprint GB1 Indoor Cycle
How Easy is the Indoor Cycle to Build?
Extremely simple to build. Attach the front and rear stabilisers, seat, handlebars and console and you're ready to ride.
What are the first impressions?
This indoor cycle has been desiged to our exacting standards, so first impressions are very good. As a summary:
- The quality of the paintwork is superb with a standard of finish
- Adjustabiility of the seat and handlbars (both horizontally and vertically) is very easy to do so that you can achieve your optimum position
- The bike is easy to move because of the transport wheels on the front stabiliser bar, so you can move it out of the way when you've finished using it
- 18kg flywheel is a great size for this price of bike
- Belt drive so there's no real maintenance on this bike
What's it like to ride?
First impressions when riding are excellent. Once you get into your workout this indoor cycle doesn't disappoint:
- Because of the belt drive the ride is very quiet and very smooth
- The friction resistance works extremely well which enables you to make the workout as easy or hard as you like, and of course you can vary this resistance during your workout by turning the adjuster knob as you cycle.
- At high speeds and/or resistance, when you're putting more strain on the bike, it still feels very stable and solid. There's no frame distortion which demonstrates the qualiity and strength of the frame.
- The console shows good information
None - you won't find a better indoor cycle at this price anywhere. A superb bike.
Anything else to add?
This is an indoor cycle that's very easy to live with. There's no routine maintenance, other than keeping the bike clean. If the drive belt needs adjusting then it's very easy to do but it's something that you won't need to do very often.
An excellent indoor cycle with a good 2 year warranty. Superb value for money.

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.
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 for no extra cost. 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.

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

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.

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

Our Reply: We should add that we asked Danny to trial this bike for us - comments are all his own though!!
