Sunny ASUNA Lancer 7130 Indoor Bike | It’s the Perfect Choice for Home

One of the Sunny ASUNA Lancer 7130 indoor bike’s main benefits is that it has a rear machine-balanced 33-pound flywheel that guarantees an entirely solid workout experience, no matter how hard you pedal. In addition, you will find the bike itself is virtually silent in operation because it has a tranquil pedal system and a belt drive system that makes no noise at all.

Another positive benefit of this ASUNA 7130 bike is that it is suitable for all fitness levels because there are 16 magnetic resistance levels. In addition, as with all good spin bikes, there is a lever right in front of you that you can move upwards or downwards during your workouts to increase or decrease the intensity.

The seat connects to a high-grade aluminum post that is light and easy to move whenever you need to adjust the height or move the seat closer to or further away from the handlebars and has a little extra padding to provide more comfort. The handlebars are just as comfortable to adjust and benefit from having multiple hand grip positions to accommodate different riding styles in both seated and standing positions.

7130 Frame construction

Sunny ASUNA Lancer 7130

Although the Sunny ASUNA Lancer 7130 indoor bike is a commercial bike, one aspect is lower than other commercial-grade spin bikes. It only has a weight capacity of 285 lbs (129 kg); for most other gym-grade bikes, the maximum weight load capacity is 300 lbs (136 kg) and above.

However, this exercise bike still features a sturdy frame designed to support a wide array of spin workouts. The bike’s frame is different than other bikes. It has a “Y” shaped structure with a low center of gravity, which allows the middle step, step section for several spin workouts.

The mainframe features a corrosion-resistant and scratch-resistant grey powder coating. Unfortunately, grey is the only color available for the ASUNA 7130 Lancer, at least for now.

The flywheel, the seat post, the handlebar post, and sliders have a chrome polish, corrosion-resistant. The only major plastic parts in its construction are the belt guard and the flywheel guard. However, these don’t diminish the bike’s overall sturdiness.

As opposed to other spin bikes, the ASUNA Lancer 7130 features a slightly wider footprint. With the frame fully assembled, it takes 57.5″L x 25.2″W (146 x 64 cm) of floor space. Thus, the larger footprint improves its stability.

Plus, both its base bars come with adjustable levelers, with large rubber caps, which provide a good grip on any flooring, preventing the bike from sliding or moving.

The bike also has a reasonably heavy construction. It weighs 107.8 lbs (49 kg), more than two times the average road bike’s weight. This weight also adds to the bike’s overall stability. But relocating it isn’t tricky as its rear base has a set of transport wheels.

Seat and handlebars

Sunny ASUNA Lancer 7130

The Sunny ASUNA Lancer 7130 indoor bike features a construction similar to the Keiser M3. However, its handlebar is simpler. It features a standard handlebar with a multi-grip design and a loop aero bar in the middle, which hosts the bike’s bottle holder.

This bike doesn’t include a fitness monitor, but if you purchase one separately, you should be able to attach it either to the loop bar or to the front part of the handlebar’s horizontal slider.

A sheet of high-density foam fully coats the handlebar to provide a secure and comfortable grip. It’s 4-way adjustable (up, down, forward, backward). Both its upright bar and horizontal slider offer several inches of adjustment.

The bike’s seat is also 4-way adjustable. And along with the 4-way adjustability of the seat, the bike can accommodate users between 5’0″ and 6’5″ (153 – 196 cm). The saddle is contoured and padded to provide optimal comfort; however, considering this is a spin seat, it doesn’t offer extreme support.

Users who are new to spinning may find it uncomfortable, at least for the first few sessions. Its comfort improves with a gel seat cover. Also, it has a standard attachment system to the bike’s slider, so compatible options are widely available.

Both seat and handlebars are easy to adjust. They come equipped with large levers, easy to grip and turn. Thus, changing the bike to your size shouldn’t take more than a minute.

7130 Drive system

As you can see in the attached photos, its flywheel is in the rear. It’s a mid-range, steel alloy flywheel with a weight of 33 lbs (15 kg). But the 33 lbs (15 kg) offers quite a consistent momentum, and a steady pedaling feels like most of its weight is in the perimeter.

Most magnetic exercise bikes come with a belt drive system, and the ASUNA Lancer does not make an exception. It integrates a heavy-duty poly V belt, which renders the bike’s usage almost entirely silent. Also, as opposed to a chain drive, it doesn’t require any lubrication or maintenance.

Another essential drive component is the crankset. This Sunny ASUNA Lancer 7130 indoor bike features an extremely solid, 3-piece crank with steel crank arms to support standing-up workouts.

As long as the user exceeds the specified 285 lbs (129 kg) weight capacity, there shouldn’t be any problem pedaling while standing up or engaging in any other spin workout.

The crank arms come with metallic, dual-sided pedals. In particular, they have toe cages for extra thrust and maximum foot stability on one side and SPD clips on the other. They also have standard threads, so you should easily find replacements for them if they completely wear out.

One last aspect to note here regards the bike’s Q-Factor. The Sunny ASUNA 7130 offers a narrow, 127 mm Q-Factor (spacing between the pedals), eliminating the joints’ lateral stress when pedaling. This is quite a plus, as you’ll have to deal with less or no post-workout joint pain.

Resistance system

This Sunny ASUNA Lancer 7130 indoor bike features a magnetic resistance system. It’s not motorized, though, so it doesn’t require a connection to a power circuit. Instead, the resistance system consists of a magnetic brake placed close to the flywheel and attached to the tension dial on the frame’s top tube.

The magnets will apply more drag onto the wheel by moving the dial-up and generate more resistance; conversely, the resistance will decrease by moving the dial down.

There are several resistance settings on the dial. The lower settings generate a light level of resistance, perfect for warm-ups and recovery training. On the other hand, the top resistance levels deliver extreme pedal tension, simulating a steep climb.

7130 Assembly and Maintenance

Sunny ASUNA Lancer 7130

The bike’s mainframe and flywheel, belt, brake, and crank come pre-assembled. Moreover, you’ll need to connect the base bars, the seat post, the handlebar post, the seat, the handlebar, and the pedals.

This shouldn’t take more than 20-30 min — furthermore, all the tools required for the assembly come with the bike. Also, the manual provides pretty clear assembly instructions.

The bike doesn’t have a chain drive; thus, its transmission doesn’t require any maintenance. For maintenance, you only have to check for loose bolts and parts from time to time and retighten as needed.

  1. Having heard a little about the sunny ASUNA lancer 7130 indoor bike, I just had to make sure it was as good as the hype surrounding it before making any commitments. I take my workouts very seriously but since I moved to a new neighborhood, its been really difficult keeping up with my outdoor cycling routine. I have to say though, this review has provided a lot of clarity. The fact that it has several levels of magnetic resistance appeals greatly to me mostly because I like to alternate intensity levels during my sessions. This has been helpful. Thanks for sharing.

  2. You have done a tremendous job covering any aspect of the bike I could ever think of, and you did it well. As far as the topic goes, these bikes serve to exercise in the comfort of one’s home instead of cycling in the weather on bad days. Exercise is becoming more and more important these days, and this bike appears to be one of the best.

  3. Wow! The look of this stationary bike knocked me out, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

    I’m a keen cyclist recovering from hip surgery (the revision operation, where my 20-year-old prosthetic was removed, the site cleaned up, the hole in the femur re-drilled, and a new hip replacement inserted five and a half hour procedure).

    I got back on the bike a week ago and was determined to ride every day. Unfortunately, it started raining yesterday, and that will continue for some time. It’s too dangerous to ride on wet roads.

    So I need an indoor bike.

    Most indoor bikes are flimsy. But not this one. The Sunny ASUNA Lancer 7130 looks strong and sturdy.

    And while it’s not cheap, I’d much rather pay a bit more and get something I’m going to use over the long term.
