Our Review of the Sprint GB-Mag Magnetic Indoor CycleHow 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 is a really nice bike that a look and feel of high quality. Here are some of the things that we like: - Console is wireless, so there are no trailing cables or connectors - Large sweat guard over the flywheel - Water bottle holder included - Both seat and handlebars can be adjusted horizontally and vertically so that you can achieve your perfect cycling position - It's a magnetic resistance bike so there's virtually no maintenance - Pedals can take cycling shoes or normal training shoes - Paintwork is finished to a very high standard which gives a great first impressionWhat's it like to ride? It's a super smooth, super quiet bike to ride. Here are our findings: - It's easy to control the resistance by turning the control knob through a series of clicks (there are over 30 resistance levels). You can then always work to the same resistance settings throughout your training session - Because it has magnetic resistance there is no wear, so your training sessions can be repeated time and again without having to compensate for bike wear - Incredibly quiet and smooth - Can withstand really hard training sessions. At high resistance and high speeds the bike is very stable - The bike has a maximum resistance of about 600w which means that you can sit or stand when cycling and get a really good workout. - Emergency stop is a great feature if you need to stop pedalling in a hurry. It's also very accessable and easy to useAny niggles? No. A good bike, well made and very easy to live with.Anything else to add? This bike has got pretty much everything that you need and is really high quality.Overall Impression? If you're looking for a high quality indoor cycle that requires very little maintenance; is well made; has a great specification and is built to last then this could be the bike for you.
Do you have a question about the Sprint GB-Mag 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. I've seen a chain driven bike for the same price - why should I buy the belt driven bike? A. We always recommend buying a belt driven bike. They're quieter, cleaner and require less maintenance. Unless you like covering yourself in oil and frequently maintaining your bike, then avoid a chain bike and buy a belt drive.
Q. I need a bike to use when the kids are asleep. Would this be OK? A. All belt drive bikes are quiet, and when they also have magnetic resistance they're almost silent. So, yes, this bike will be perfect for you.
Q. There's a part missing from the console - I've checked the manual and it says that I have to attach this part to the bike? A. You're referring to the console transmitter - it's already attached to the bike. Just put the console on the bike, start pedalling and you'll find that the console works.
Q. Do the pedals take SPD cleats? A. Yes. You can use this bike with cycling shoes.
Q. What's the difference between a light commercial and full commercial grade magnetic indoor cycle? A. It's to do with the level of use that the bikes are designed to take - full commercial bikes can be used all day every day in indoor cycling classes. Light commercial bikes are more suited for use when there are maybe only 3-4 classes per day.
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 GB-Mag Indoor Cycle
Great bike, good value for money The bike was delivered in mint condition w/o scratches. Now after heavy use every second day for 1 month, I still enjoy riding it. Very sturdy frame and smooth riding. Console is simple but sufficient. Only replaced the pedals with the much better Shimano SPD-SL type ones that I use for road racing. (31/03/2015) Vilhelm - London

Just what I needed! This bike is smooth, nice features and a dream to ride. It arrived mostly assembled. Had a 15 minute telephone conversation with fantastic advice so I got the best bike with the right features for my needs and budget. I am so glad I called rather than going it alone on the internet! (16/03/2015) Kat - Suffolk
Our Reply: Thanks Kat - it's a great bike
Very pleased with the cycle The cycle comes in one large box which definitely needs two people to manhandle it. I did however manage to unpack and assemble the cycle unaided. The user manual gave rudimentary assembly instructions which were just about OK. The build quality is excellent and the cycle is very quiet. (13/03/2015) Peter Evans - Bristol

Fabulous Bike I have wanted a spin bike for a while and so I have done a good deal of research on the many options available. Living in a flat, I always knew I wanted a belt driven bike, chain driven bikes are a bit noisy. The braking system on spin bikes can be either friction or magnetic; I tried both and found the magnetic system to be superior, it is smooth, with an even pedal stroke. The problem is the magnetic system is more expensive, and I wasnt sure If it was worth paying the extra money for the benefits of the quiet smooth magnetic pedal stroke. I ended up buying the Sprint GB Mag, this has proven to be a superbly built, belt driven bike, with magnetic resistance, which is everything I had hoped for, with enough resistance for even the most demanding cyclist. I am delighted with the bike and would highly recommend it to other potential customers. I found Andy , the salesman ,to be knowledgeable , patient, and very helpful in outlining the pros and cons of each bike. I believe the Sprint GB Mag to be ideal for those who like me want a quiet, but powerful, indoor bike. I really couldnt be happier with my purchase. (24/11/2014) William - Cornwall

Great bike - a great bike, very quiet and smooth - resistance of the bike can be adjusted to the point where a tough climb up a hill can be simulated - It is a well built bike It took me a while to find the right bike but I am now very happy with the bike I have bought. Thanks for your help and patience (13/11/2014) -
