What We Like
When considering the purchase of this indoor cycling bike, there are a myriad of aspects to the bike that make it a fantastic purchase. Users will discover that the heavy-duty steel frame composition for the body really does make it seem extra sturdy. The frame of the bike also comes with a lifetime warranty, which is much more substantial in comparison to most warranties for similar indoor bikes. The fact that the seat can be adjusted to the point where any user from the height of 4.4 inches to 6.5 inches can comfortably use it is a small feature that nonetheless makes it feel like a bike that can be used by relatively anyone. While this might not seem like such a huge feature, there are many indoor bikes that do not work well with taller users.
Despite the fact that the bike is made out of exceedingly sturdy materials, the seat is extremely comfortable to sit on, allowing the rider to do so for long periods of time without becoming too uncomfortable. Users will also notice that the belt drive is relatively quiet, which allows for easy home use that won’t annoy others in the house.

The 46-pound precision flywheel is another feature that really comes in handy when attempting to change the tension of the bike to suit each individual users workout goals. The padded handlebars are a nice little accessory that makes for satisfactory riding after a lot of usage.

What We Don’t Like
While there are a plethora of positives that users can contribute to this bike, there are also a few negatives that users should take into consideration. One of the primary things that we didn’t like is that of the price. It does have a few features that are better than many indoor bikes from the competition, but there’s not enough extra features to really justify the high price. For anyone that’s on a budget, it might be a bit too pricey to keep in consideration.
Another aspect of the bike that might cause some users to be wary is the heavy weight of the machine, sitting at just under 130 pounds in weight. For anyone that lives in an apartment complex and has to haul it up stairs, this can be a bit tricky and will require at least two people in order to do so properly. It’s also important to note that the drive cover is plastic. This isn’t a huge negative, but it is the one part of the bike that doesn’t have perfect sturdiness.
The Bottom Line
The BodyCraft SPX Club Indoor Cycling Bike is an indoor cycle that everyone should consider. The sleek black/grey body of the bike, as well as the sturdy stainless steel frame, really helps to display the professionalism that was put into the craftsmanship of this bike. Though there are a couple of negatives to keep in mind, such as the slightly high price point and the huge weight of the machine, the positives, including the adjustable seat and the 46-pound precision flywheel, really help to set this bike apart as one that comes highly recommended.
