About Sunny Health and Fitness
The Sunny Health & Fitness Pro Indoor Cycling Bike is extremely good value for money. Considering the build quality and durability, it is right up there with the best spinning bikes and only costs a fraction of the price. You can get the bike in some places for around $250, which really does represent a rock bottom price.
Reliability & Warranty: 4.5/5
In terms of reliability, the Sunny Health & Fitness Pro Indoor Cycling Bike ticks all the boxes. Once set up, it’s unlikely that there will be anything that goes wrong, and that’s where Sunny Health’s emphasis on simplicity works to its advantage.
To keep the bike running smoothly you will most likely have to oil the brakes every now and again to prevent them from giving off a smell. The Sunny Health & Fitness Pro Indoor Cycling Bike is a little like an outdoor bike, so oiling the chain, and other components susceptible to wear should ensure a smooth ride long term.
Most warranties on larger pieces of fitness equipment are broken down into separate categories (For example 10 years on the frame and 1 year on labour) however Sunny Health offers only a 90-day warranty on everything. Although this is a very short warranty based on the competition, the quality and durability of the bike should last you a lifetime, and as I said earlier, there aren’t lots of bells and whistles that could potentially go wrong. That being said taking into consideration the low price of the bike a 90-day warranty isn’t too bad.
Stability and Quality: 4.5/5
The Sunny Health & Fitness Pro Indoor Cycling Bike is a very sturdy bike. The 40-pound flywheel weighs down the front of the bike giving the user a lot of stability and sturdiness, even at the higher resistances and fast speeds. The bike is very well made and given its quality, many are surprised that the bike only costs $250 when they see it for the first time.
I’ve discovered that since I’ve started researching users comments on bikes, or any fitness bike on the market, there is never a general consensus on whether a bike seat is comfortable or not. Some people will find a seat comfortable, and some will not, and the Sunny Health & Fitness Pro Indoor Cycling Bike is no different. Sometimes it takes time to get used to a new type of seat and a user needs to have a little patience.
The great thing about fitness bikes is that you can always fix the problem by buying a gel cushion or cover to put over the uncomfortable seat.
The seat is adjustable and can move forward and back, as well as up and down. In addition, the handlebars are fully adjustable also. The bike can accommodate all shapes and sizes.
The resistance levels are controlled via a tension knob under the handlebars. Changing resistances on the Sunny Health & Fitness Pro Indoor Cycling Bike is simple and easy, compared to most other bikes that are done through an electronic LCD panel.
The flywheel on the Sunny Health & Fitness Pro Indoor Cycling Bike isn’t as quiet as on some of the fitness bikes you’ll get which are designed for more casual use. That being said it is still quiet, but it’s not dead silent.
There are some complaints by users that they often get a loud clanking noise when peddling. The usual cause of such a noise is that the chain is either too loose or too tight. You may have to remove the guard over the chain and change the tension of the chain by tightening or loosening the bolt. If there’s something wrong with this bike it can usually be solved by tweaking the setup.
The Sunny Health & Fitness Pro Indoor Cycling Bike doesn’t have any features that I deem to be ‘bells and whistles,’ for example there’s no built-in fan, speakers or fancy LCD monitor. However, it has all the features required by someone who is serious about their fitness goals and wants to engage in a high-intensity workout.
If there is one thing lacking that would make it more complete, it would be a water bottle holder. Users who buy this bike are likely to be undertaking high-intensity workouts and it’s important for them to remain hydrated. On the other hand, it’s not the end of the world, you can always buy a third party water bottle cage and clip it on.
If you want to monitor your heart rate or track calories burned, you’ll have to buy your own tracking equipment as they are not included with the Sunny Health & Fitness Pro Indoor Cycling Bike.
Should I Buy The Sunny Health & Fitness Pro Indoor Cycling Bike?
The Sunny Health & Fitness Pro Indoor Cycling Bike is a fantastic bike, but it’s not for everyone as its targeted at a particular type of user. If you’re looking for a comfortable and low-intensity workout whilst watching TV or listening to calming music, then there are bikes much better suited for you, such as the Schwinn 170 Upright Bike.
On the other hand, if you’re currently in love with spinning and want a bike that can push you all the way, then the Sunny Health & Fitness Pro Indoor Cycling Bike is well suited to you. Not only that but Sunny Health have managed to pack a lot of quality and durability in one bike at a rock bottom price.
At under $250 the Sunny Health & Fitness Pro Indoor Cycling Bike is an absolute bargain and amazing value for money. Spinners and biking fanatics will not be disappointed.
