The Yosuda L-007 Indoor Cycling Bike is a low to mid-range home use indoor cycle equipped with a belt drive system for a quiet and smooth spinning workout experience. Its belt drive system is superior to chain drive bikes because it has low-maintenance and does not require lubing. It is also soft and makes less noise. So, your exercise doesn’t disturb the rest of the family.
What is even more unique about the Yosuda L-007 bike is its heavy flywheel. The L-007 comes with a 43 pounds bidirectional flywheel, which could offer more momentum to give you a challenging exercise experience. In terms of resistance, the Yosuda L-007 belt-driven indoor cycling bike comes with the wool felt-pad friction.
This top home budget exercise bike by Yosuda comes with a no-backlit LCD monitor. It tracks your time, speed, distance, calories burned, and odometer While you are cycling to give you a more scientific exercise data and keep you aware of your performance. The L-007 monitor does not have any wireless connection (Bluetooth and ANT/+).
The Yosuda L-007 indoor cycling bike has a fully customizable seat. It is also padded to provide extra support during long rides. The center cutout ergonomic design of the saddle offers anatomic relief and ventilation to prevent overheating during summer rides.

L-007 Frame construction
The core frame of the Yosuda L-007 indoor cycling bike is steel tubing. However, it also incorporates several ABS parts. For example, the belt cover and the brake cover are a durable ABS material. Furthermore, the bike is designed to support a maximum user weight capacity of 300 lbs (136 kg).
All the steel tubes in the bike’s frame are ovalized for improved aesthetics but also enhanced sturdiness. The base bars are V-shaped to deliver extra stability. Plus, they’re both equipped with adjustable levelers, which offer the possibility to stabilize the unit on any floor correctly. They also have rubberized pads to prevent floor damage.
The bike’s core frame has a corrosion-resistant and chip-resistant paint finish. The color used is black, with the “Yosuda” logo painted white. The only exceptions are the seat post, the handlebar post, and the flywheel. These are all chrome-plated.
This Yosuda exercise bike isn’t huge compared to other fitness machines. It is 42.2″ (107 cm) long and 21.7″ (55 cm) wide, while its maximum height (with the handlebar extended up) is 47.7″ (121 cm). Of course, it is recommended to leave at least two feet of clearance around it for ease of access and unhindered usage.
Despite its heavy flywheel, this exercise bike is a bit lighter than other models. The Yosuda bike only weighs approx. 88 lbs (40 kg). However, it still is more than two times heavier than the average road bike, and all this weight provides excellent stability.
Once the bike assembled, its transport is accessible via the wheels integrated into its front base. Thus, its weight shouldn’t be a problem when it comes to relocation.
Seat and handlebars
The Yosuda L-007 exercise bike includes a comfort saddle. To begin with, it is a reasonably large saddle compared to most spin seats, being 10.6″ (27 cm) long, and 7.9″ (20 cm) wide. Thus, it provides plenty of contact surfaces.
It integrates a thick layer of foam padding, especially in its rear section. Plus, it has two suspension springs at the rear which not only improve shock absorption, they also allow the seat to bend as you pedal.
The seat has a standard, collar-based attachment system to its post. So, in case you will ever need to replace it, compatible options are widely available.
The seat offers 4-way adjustability. Its upright post offers a 7-inch (17.7 cm) adjustment span, between 34.6″ (87.8 cm) and 41.8″ (106 cm). Plus, its horizontal slider provides several inches of front to back adjustment.
So, as a small conclusion here, the seat should be able to accommodate users between 5’0″ (153 cm) and 6’5″ (196 cm) with no problem, allowing a full range of motion for any user in this height range.
The bike’s handlebar has a reasonably simple design. It lacks an aero bar element and also does not have drop-down grips. It is square-shaped and offers the possibility to adopt four grips, including standard and parallel grip.
The whole handlebar assembly is covered by a layer of foam to provide a superior grip and optimal comfort. It does not have any pulse sensors, and the bike does not have a pulse reading function. It is only 2-way adjustable (up, down), and offers an adjustment span of approx. 12″ (30.5 cm), between 35.8″ (91 cm) and 47.7″ (121 cm).
L-007 Drive and resistance
As I’ve mentioned above, the Yosuda L-007 comes with 43 lbs (19.5 kg) flywheel. This is a bit heavier than the average wheel of most spin bikes, which typically have a 40 lbs (18 kg) flywheel. It has a perimeter-weighted design to provide enhanced inertia and extra stability during pedaling. Thus, the pedaling motion is very smooth.
The bike’s flywheel permits pedaling in reverse. However, coasting is not possible. When pedaling in reverse, you will meet the same resistance as when pedaling forward. Also, the pedals continue to spin for as long the flywheel is spinning.
The bike’s drivetrain uses a heavy-duty v-belt. Therefore, the pedaling motion is tranquil and vibration-free. Plus, it does not require lubrication as a chain drive.
The crankset is exceptionally sturdy. It features solid steel crank arms and metallic pedals. It can hold users up to 300 lbs (136 kg) incomplete standing up position, and for any spin workout. The pedals are equipped with toe cages but do not have SPD clips for spin shoes. However, they do have standard 9/16″ threads, so replacements for them are widely available.
The Yosuda L-007 bike features a standard friction resistance system. It has a felt brake pad attached to the tension knob on top of the frame. Specifically, to adjust the resistance, you have to rotate the knob to tighten or untighten the pad onto the flywheel.
The tension knob also works as an emergency brake. You can press it down to stop the wheel from spinning, which may be necessary if you have been pedaling at a very high speed and need to stop.
The bike’s resistance system does not have any pre-determined settings or “clicks” like most bikes with a magnetic resistance have. You turn the knob until you get the resistance you want. As a general idea, the knob can be tightened up to the point you can barely pedal.
This Yosuda exercise bike comes with a fitness console. It features an LCD and only one button that covers all its functions. It tracks the essential workout metrics, including time, distance, total distance, speed, and calories.
Furthermore, it does not have and preset programs or goal-setting functions. It also does not have a pulse reading function. Therefore, in case you need to monitor your heart rate during your cycling sessions, you will have to use a separate device.
The fitness console is straightforward to use. By pressing the button repeatedly, you can select any of the workout metrics to display on the console.
Or, you can select the Scan Mode, which rotates all the values, keeping each one on display for a few seconds. Also, by pressing and holding the button for a few seconds, you can clear all the values on it to zero.
The console requires 2 AAA batteries, which are (included) with the bike. To start it up, you can either press the button or begin pedaling. It also has a sleep mode to which it will enter after a few minutes of inactivity on the bike.
L-007 Assemble and Maintenance
The main body of the bike comes pre-assembled. Therefore, you only have to add the two base bars, the seat post, the saddle, the handlebar post, the handlebar, the console, and the pedals. This shouldn’t take more than 30-40 minutes. An essential toolkit is (included). Also, the manual provides precise assembly instructions.
For maintenance, the bike’s brake pad may require lubrication with a bit of silicone lubricant. Since the transmission is belt-based, it does not need any lubrication. It is also recommended to periodically check for loose bolts and parts, and keep the unit clean.
