Our Review of the Gym Gear M.Sport Magnetic 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?
Fantastic. There are some really nice details on this indoor cycle which make it stand out from the crowd. Here are some of the things that we like:
- Console is wireless, so there are no trailing cables or connectors
- 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
- Maximum user weight is nearly 19st which is very high for an indoor cycle
- Paintwork is finished to a very high standard which gives a great first impression
What's it like to ride?
The Gym Gear M.Sport is brilliant to ride. It's very quiet and smooth as a result of the 20kg equivalent flywheel and the belt drive. We were so impressed with the bike that we gave it to 6 spin class instructors for the day to try it out. The comments that they had included:
- 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
- Emergency stop is a great feature if you need to stop pedalling in a hurry. It's also very accessable and easy to use
None - pound for pound this has to be the best indoor cycle in the UK.
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.
This is a great indoor cycle. It's equally at home in a spinning class as it is in a home environment, and it has all of the features that you could ever need. A good warranty is provided with the bike should there be any problems. At the time of writing this review the price of this indoor cycle is well under £1000 which is incredible given the quality - there are cycles which are twice the price which really don't match up to the Gym Gear M.Sport.

Cycle Specific Questions
Q. I'm in training for Iron Man and want a heavy duty spin bike (approx 1.5 hours per day usage). What do you recommend?
A. We'd suggest a full commercial bike such as the Gym Gear M.Sport. This is designed for heavy use and will be more than suitable for your needs.
Q. I've seen a chain driven bike for the same price - why should I buy the belt driven Gym Gear?
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. 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. I read somewhere that this is the bike that you recommend. Can you tell me why?
A. We recommend a number of bikes on our site, but we recommend the Gym Gear M.Sport because it's a full commercial bike; it has a belt drive; it has magnetic resistance; the build quality is excellent and it's just about the best indoor cycle that you can get for under £1000.
Q. Will the padded seat fit on this bike?
A. Yes - the bike will accept all standard bike seats, including our padded seat.
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.
