Our Review of the Sprint Racer Indoor CycleHow Easy is the Indoor Cycle to Build? The Sprint Racer indoor cycle is very easy to build. Attach the stabilisers at the front and rear of the bike, drop in the seat and handlebars, attach the pedals and console and you're ready to ride. Takes about 15 minutes in total.What are the first impressions? This indoor cycle has been designed by us and it incorporates all of the good things that you'll want in an indoor cycle: - Adjustability of the seat and handlebars (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 - 20kg flywheel is a great size for this price of bike - Belt drive so there's no real maintenance on this bike - Console gives good feedback when cyclingWhat's it like to ride? Excellent. The 20kg flywheel coupled with the belt drives makes this bike very quiet and extremely smooth. If you're wondering whether this will match up to the spin bike in your class then the short answer is "yes - it will feel better!": - 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 including speed, distance, time and calories burnedAny niggles? No - this is our best friction brake bike for the price.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.Overall Impression? Although priced as an entry level bike, it's far better than that. In fact we challenge you to find a bike of this specification and quality anywhere else. Buy one and you won't be disappointed.

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 20 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 Racer 2 has a 20kg 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 130kg.
Q. Do the pedals take SPD cleats? A. Yes.
Q. Can I use my heart rate belt with this bike? A. Yes.
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.
