IC037 Frame construction
Since it’s a bike designed for spin workouts, the Efitment Streamline IC037 features a sturdy construction. Its frame is steel tubing coated with a corrosion-resistant paint finish. The colors used are metallic gray for the mainframe and black for the seat and handlebar posts.
The flywheel is chrome-plated with ABS side covers. The only other ABS plastic parts in the bike’s construction are the belt and brake cover.
The bike’s frame is triangular for improved sturdiness but doesn’t have the standard design with straight bars—the main oblique tube curves slightly for enhanced aesthetics. Also, most bars in the bike’s construction are oval. The only exceptions are the seat’s slider, rectangular, and the handlebar, which features cylindrical tubes.
The Streamline IC037 exercise bike has a short horizontal bar that unites the seat tube and the main curved line. Although this may seem insignificant, it can be quite a plus for specific spin workouts requiring mounting and dismount or repeatedly performing stretches. Unfortunately, not all spin bikes have this feature.
The fully assembled bike isn’t giant. It is only 44″ (112 cm) long and 21″ (53 cm) wide. Therefore, it can fit pretty well, even into a small room. However, it is advisable to allow at least 24″ (61 cm) of clearance all around it to perform any spin workout without any hindrance.
Compared to other spin bikes, the Efitment IC037 isn’t extremely heavy. However, it weighs approximately 73 lbs (33 kg), approximating twice the average road bike’s weight. This weight reflects in its overall stability. Plus, both its base bars have adjustable levelers, while the front base integrates a set of wheels to facilitate its relocation.
Seat and handlebars
The Efitment Streamline IC037 indoor cycling bike comes equipped with a seat that excels in comfort factors. To begin with, it is wider than the average spin bike seat providing an extra contact surface.
It integrates a thick layer of cushioning, which considerably reduces the impact on your tailbone. In addition, it has a large cutout in the middle, which improves breathability. Its cover is durable synthetic leather, and its rear section features two spring elements that will enhance its flex.
Another vital aspect of the bike’s saddle that I must mention here is its attachment system. The seat features a standard, collar-type attachment system which allows a slight forward or backward tilt.
In case you ever need to replace it, compatible options are also widely available; you can find a seat for this bike in any bike shop.
The bike’s seat is four-way adjustable (up, down, forward, backward). Its vertical post offers nine adjustment positions, while the horizontal slider adds a few extra inches of front-to-back adjustment.
Therefore, the bike can accommodate users with an inseam between 29″ and 36″ (73 – 91 cm). In other words, it should fit users between 5’2 ″ and 6’6 ″ (157 – 198 cm), allowing a complete leg extension. Also, the seat assembly supports users up to 275 lbs (125 kg).
The Efitment IC037 comes equipped with a multi-grip handlebar. It offers off-road grips, climb-type grips, and flat land grips. It also has a small loop bar in the center, which allows a close parallel grip. The side grips feature a layer of rubber foam material for improved comfort. However, they do not integrate HR pulse sensors.
The handlebar is only two-way adjustable (up, down). Its post has six adjustment positions. Like a handlebar, it does not have a slider, as some other bikes offer.
IC037 Drive and resistance
First, the Streamline IC037 is one of the Efitment indoor cycling bikes with a lighter flywheel. Its flywheel only weighs 22 lbs (10 kg). Nonetheless, it is perimeter-weighted; this design adds inertia, excellent for spin workouts.
The flywheel and the bike’s drive system allow reverse pedaling. Therefore, you can diversify your workouts alternating forward with reverse pedaling sessions. It’s also important to mention that the included fitness console continues to track your workout metrics even when you pedal in reverse.
The Efitment IC037 has a manual magnetic resistance system. Thus, it doesn’t need an external power source or an adapter. But on the other hand, it cannot adjust the resistance automatically.
The resistance system consists of a magnetic brake attached to the tension knob on the frame’s top tube. By turning this knob clockwise, the magnetic brake moves closer to the flywheel, which increases the pedaling difficulty.
The brake is manual; in other words, it doesn’t have pre-determined levels. Instead, you turn the knob until you find the desired pedaling difficulty. It can also act as an emergency brake to instantly stop the flywheel spinning.
Since it’s a bike designed for spin workouts, its crankset and pedals will support the user’s whole weight. So, as long as you don’t exceed the bike’s weight limit (275 lbs / 125 kg), you should be able to pedal while standing up with no problem.
The pedals are durable metallic alloys. They don’t have SPD elements for spin shoes but have a non-slip surface and adjustable toe cages. The exact pedal Q Factor (spacing between the pedals) is not specified. However, it’s relatively narrow to eliminate any lateral stress on the knees.
Last but not least, this Efitment exercise bike comes equipped with a poly-v belt. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about its lubrication. Also, the pedaling motion is almost entirely silent and vibration-free.
The Efitment IC037 comes with a simple fitness monitor. It’s a small unit featuring an LCD, indicating time, distance, speed, and calories burned. Unfortunately, the bike doesn’t have pulse sensors, and the fitness console unit cannot track your pulse.
The monitor is straightforward to use. It only has one button. By pressing the button repeatedly, you can select the workout metric that interests you the most. You can also choose its Scan Mode, which will enable it to rotate all the workout metrics showing each one for 4 seconds. The button also has a reset function. By pressing and holding it for a few seconds, you can clear all its values to zero.
The fitness monitor is battery-powered. It requires one AAA battery, which comes included with the bike. It starts when you begin pedaling or pressuring its button and automatically turns off if it does not detect any activity on the bike for 3 minutes. When it enters its sleep mode, all function values remain saved so you can pick up where you left.
IC037 Assembly and Maintenance
Similar to most other spin bikes, the Efitment IC037 requires some assembly. Its main body comes pre-assembled, though. Therefore, you only need to attach the two base bars, the seat post, the pedals, the handlebar post, the handlebar, and the fitness monitor.
Therefore, it shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes of your time. The manual provides all the necessary instructions, and an essential toolkit also comes included.
Since the bike has a frictionless magnetic brake system and a belt drive system, it doesn’t need any lubrication or brake pad replacement. Therefore, you only need to keep your bike clean and periodically check for loose bolts or parts in terms of maintenance.
