Looking for a temporary exercise bike with long term clothes storage?

This seems a very good deal for a flywheel spinning-esque bike .. 10KG is on the lower end of the Spinning Bike weights but is still a good starter.. Tesco seem to be doing good deals across the board.

JLL have good reviews as entry level bikes with nifty features like a bottle holder (and bottle) included!

Seems to be the best price including P&P, and of course Tesco Points!

10KG - £109.99 - tesco.com/dir…prd

15KG - £155.99 - tesco.com/dir…prd

18KG - £169.99 - tesco.com/dir…prd

JLL have many of the same now reduced prices but without the points of course

Some people will get more excerise moving the bike than using it; so for them the heavier ones are better!

Safer than trying to ride a normal bike with some people in cars trying to get from A to B two minutes quicker and ingoring all road safety.

Good bike for price point but tbh it’s not a cracking deal, this is the going rate, ok as it includes delivery

The greater the weight of the flywheel the more effort/resistance required to turn it. Also a true "spinning" bike would have a fixed wheel i.e you can't just stop peddling, the flywheel keeps rotating working the leg muscles for a greater work out

Too true, I bought one a year ago with great intentions, it's done 4 mile so far. That's from people just trying it when they pop over.
Can anyone tell me how the ride on a spin bike differs to that of the traditional (old) style exercise bike?

Simulates riding a real bike. The old style will burn less calories as its not as intense. My gym recommends the old style if youre new to fitness otherwise get on the spins.

Main difference for me is the ability to do standing climbs. If you are wanting to get your heart rate up to anything near a proper hill climb on a bike then these you need to get out of the saddle and crank up the resistance.
I'm looking for a spin bike, this is by far the cheapest I've seen (even second hand), but i don't know much about them. Does anyone have one of these? I'm a 90kg bloke used to spinning a couple of times a week, is 10kg going to be enough?

I would appreciate @fanpages opinion on this deal.
What sort of clothes is this good to dry? Is the 10KG suitable for t-shirts, jeans etc and the 18KG better for bedsheets? Cheers.

Is this for you? Have you any experience of a standard outdoor bike, &/or a "spin" bike, & what is your objective for training?

Additionally, finding a bike that has an adjustable seat, handlebars &, optionally, pedals in this price range are probably important factors if you have not actually sat on the product before purchase.

I was thinking of buying it for a relative who cycled a bit in the past but doesn't seem to get out as much nowadays. I think they're a bit unnerved with traffic. I just wondered if it was decent value for what it is.

Yes, it's certainly a good price for what you are getting (compared with other "spin" cycles) but, as discussed already, the weight of the FlyWheel may influence the decision of somebody with experience of similar equipment, or those with a set goal for their training.

The current fitness level, & the intended fitness level, of the relative would also influence my decision (if this was me buying for somebody else).

Why not buy them a class or two at a dedicated "spin" cycle centre to see how they get on, & take it from there?

That could be a (much) cheaper way of learning if they would enjoy owning this equipment, or not.

PS. I have this item:

Thanks for that FP, very much appreciated.
BTW, there are lots of spin classes and go-pro style real life cycling videos on YouTube to spin along too... I use them whenever I go on my bike. Good motivation and keeps you engaged and interested instead of just phasing out and getting bored (and eventually just using it to hang your clothes on).
I was looking at the ProForm TDF bikes but they have mixed reviews and are probably a bit advanced for my needs. Looking to get a bike to help me get back to full fitness after impending hip surgery. Really want one with a video screen (or attachment for tablet) to "cycle" routes like they have at my David Lloyd. Can anybody recommend one ? I have a budget up to a grand. TIA
Looking for a good deal on the IC300 PRO if anyone sees one. Thanks.

I find that most of the time reading the latest on brexit whilst using a stationary bike gets my heart rate up just fine....
