The Cyclace Indoor Cycling Bike features a triangle-shaped mainframe built with thickened steel and a multi-layer design to protect against rust. This design lends so much to both its physical beauty and its sturdiness. The bike has a maximum user weight capacity of up to 330 lbs (150 kg) on the sturdy, stable, and comprehensive frame.
It comes with a 36 lbs bidirectional flywheel, which drives the train’s resistance level and adds extra balance to the machine’s frame. The bidirectional flywheel allows you to pedal both forward and reverse at the same resistance level to target more muscle groups. In addition, the belt drive system offers a quiet experience and a smooth and friction-free edge.
The Cyclace indoor cycling bike features a small fitness monitor that tracks the distance traveled, calories burned, time exercised, current speed, and ODOmeter. You can reset the monitor by pressing and holding the button for a few seconds. And there is a device holder just below the LCD where you can place your smartphone or tablet for entertainment- watching videos or listening to music.
The seat is for the rider’s ultimate comfort and safety. It is fully adjustable in 4-ways: upward/downward and forward/backward. The seat is well padded for your comfort. There is a center cutout underneath, which allows for interior air circulation inside the saddle. The handlebars are 2-way adjustable (vertically and horizontally), allowing for various workout styles.

Cyclace Frame construction
The Cyclace indoor cycling bike features a heavy-duty steel frame with an impressive weight capacity of 330 lbs (150 kg). The frame has a triangular design with the main oblique tube and the longitudinal base tube slightly curved for extra sturdiness and superior aesthetics.
The fully assembled bike is not extremely large. Its footprint is approx. 41″L x 24″W (104 x 62 cm). However, it is advisable to leave at least two feet of clearance all around it for easy access and unhindered usage.
The bike isn’t hefty but does weigh approx. 86 lbs (39 kg). Therefore, the transport of the boxed unit may require two people. However, it transports quickly once assembled as its front base integrates two large silicone wheels.
Also, the 86 lbs of weight are considerably more than the weight of the average mountain bike. Therefore, the Cyclace trainer provides excellent stability. Plus, both its base bars come with adjustable stabilizers with rubber pads.
The bike’s frame has a corrosion-resistant and chip-resistant paint finish. The color used is gray, except for the seat post, handlebar post, and flywheel, chrome.
Also, it is essential to note that the bike integrates several ABS parts. For example, the cover of the brake pad and the cover of the belt are non-metallic and ABS-made. However, they only have a protective role and don’t reduce the bike’s overall sturdiness and weight capacity.
Seat and handlebars
The Cyclace indoor cycling trainer includes a large, consistently padded saddle. It is approx. 10.4″ (26.4 cm) long and 8″ (20.3 cm) wide and integrates 2″ (5 cm) of cushioning. It has a durable, double-stitched faux leather upholstery and a central cutout, improving breathability.
It also has two suspension springs at the rear, which enable it to adapt better to the user’s movement during seated workouts.
The bike’s seat is 4-way adjustable (up, down, front, back). Its vertical post has eight adjustment positions, while its horizontal slider offers a few extra inches of front-to-back adjustment.
In terms of height, the seat adjusts between 35″ and 42.9″ (88.9 – 108.9 cm) from the floor. So, the bike can accommodate users between 5’1″ and 6’4″ (155 – 193 cm) with no problem, allowing a complete leg extension.
The saddle has a standard, collar-based connection system to its post. Therefore, you can also tilt it slightly forward or backward, requiring two wrenches. Plus, since it’s a standard seat, its replacement options are widely available.
The bike comes with a multi-grip handlebar. It’s quite a plus that it has drop-down grips; many other spin bikes only have the front grips. It also has two small aero bars which integrate a tablet holder.
The whole handlebar assembly has a layer of PVC material to provide a secure grip. However, it is only 2-way adjustable (up, down).
It offers a good adjustment span of approximately 5″ (12.7 cm), between 42.9″ and 47.9″ (88.9 – 122 cm) from the floor. However, it’s important to note that the bike’s handlebar does not include integrated pulse sensors.
Cyclace Drive and resistance
The Cyclace indoor cycling bike comes with a 36-lb (16.3 kg) flywheel, chrome-plated, and ABS covers. The wheel has a perimeter-weighted design to provide higher inertia and consistent momentum during pedaling. It is also bi-directional. Therefore, you can pedal in reverse if you want.
The bike uses a belt transmission system with several advantages over a chain drive. For example, you don’t have to lubricate the belt while the pedaling motion is smooth, vibration-free, and very quiet.
Since it’s a bike for spin workouts, the Cyclace 2019 trainer comes with a heavy-duty crankset featuring solid steel arms and aluminum pedals. The crankset is sturdy enough to support up to 330 lbs (150 kg).
The pedals have a non-slip design and PVC toe cages for extra foot stability. Unfortunately, they do not have SPD clips for spin shoes, but their threads are 9/16, so you can find replacements for them in any bike shop.
The bike has a standard friction resistance system. The brake is high-density wool felt pad, which attaches to the tension knob on top of the frame’s top tube. By turning the knob clockwise, the brake pad applies more friction to the flywheel, which results in more incredible pedaling difficulty.
It’s important to note that the brake system does not have pre-determined tension levels for bikes with a magnetic resistance system. As a result, you can tighten the brake up to the point when you can barely pedal.
It’s also important to note that you cannot coast on this exercise bike because the pedals continue to spin for as long as the flywheel is spinning.
However, the resistance knob also fulfills an emergency brake’s role by pressing it down to stop the wheel if you want to change the direction of pedaling or pause your workout.
The Cyclace indoor cycling bike comes with a fitness monitor. Furthermore, it features an LCD (without a backlight) that tracks time, distance, total distance (odometer), speed, and calories burned.
Unfortunately, it cannot read pulse, and the bike does not integrate pulse sensors. Therefore, if you need to watch your heart rate during workouts, you will need to use a separate device.
The monitor requires two AA batteries as its power source. It only has one button, which covers all its functions. To start it up, you can press the button or begin pedaling. As for shutdown, it will automatically enter its sleep mode if there is no activity on the bike for several minutes.
The fitness monitor is straightforward to use. You can select any workout metrics to display by repeatedly pressing the button. The Scan Mode rotates all the metrics showing each one for a few seconds.
You can also clear the values to zero, except for the odometer, by pressing and holding the button for a few seconds. In addition, the odometer will reset to zero if you remove the batteries from it.
Cyclace Assembly and Maintenance
The bike requires some assembly, but the task is pretty straightforward. All the drive and resistance parts are already in their place, so you only need to attach the two base bars, the seat, the handlebars, the pedals, and the fitness monitor.
Therefore, it shouldn’t take more than 20-30 minutes of your time. An essential toolkit for the assembly comes with the bike, and the manual provides pretty clear assembly instructions.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, the bike has a belt drive system, so its transmission doesn’t need lubrication. Therefore, you only need to keep the unit clean and periodically check for loose bolts and parts in terms of maintenance.
