The Yosuda YB-007A Indoor Cycling Bike is well-built from the inside out. With its triangular steel frame and precision manufacturing, you’ll enjoy a safer riding experience. Furthermore, with its rock-solid foundation, the YB-007A has a maximum user weight capacity of up to 330 lbs.
If you’re a cycling enthusiast, the 40 lb heavy flywheel will meet your needs; if you’re a beginner, it’ll motivate your exercise. The YB-007A features a bidirectional drive, perfect for working for every muscle group in your body. As a result, you’ll burn 400-500 calories within 45 minutes of riding, the equivalent of running for one and a half hours.
The Yosuda YB-007A indoor cycling bike uses a pure felted wool brake pad, makes less noise, and is more durable. A continuous infinite resistance system allows you to simulate actual road riding. Easy to control, turn the knob to increase or decrease resistance, and press down the knob to stop the bike immediately.
The YB-007A has a multifunctional fitness monitor that tracks your time, speed, RPM, distance, calories burned, and odometer. However, the monitor does not have a pulse reading function. Equipped with an iPad Holder allows you to watch exercise videos or listen to music while exercising, thus, making your fitness fun.

L-007A Frame Construction
The Yosuda L-007A features a triangular steel frame with a slightly curved main bar for improved sturdiness and aesthetics. All the steel bars in its construction are oval with precision-welded joints.
The mainframe comes coated with a corrosion-resistant black paint finish, while the seat post, the handlebar post, and the flywheel have a chrome finish. The flywheel has ABS side covers, while the drivetrain guard is ABS plastic.
Like other spin bikes, the Yosuda L-007A is not a large fitness machine. It is only 44.5″ (113 cm) long and 21.7″ (55 cm) wide. Therefore, it doesn’t take too much usage/storage space. However, leaving at least two clearance feet all around is advisable for correct and unhindered usage.
The fully assembled bike is pretty heavy. It weighs approx. 86 lbs (39 kg) is considerably more than the average mountain bike’s weight. However, this weight plays an essential role in its overall stability. Furthermore, the bike shouldn’t rock or move even if you engage in a high-intensity spin workout.
Both bases stabilizing bars of the bike come with adjustable levelers that rest on large pads. Thus, you can perfectly level the unit on any floor. The front stabilizer base also has large silicone wheels that considerably ease the bike’s relocation.
Seat and handlebars
The Yosuda YB-007A indoor cycling bike comes with a high-comfort seat. Not only that, it integrates a thick layer of cushioning; it also has two large springs at its rear, allowing it to flex and adapt better to your training. In addition, its top is durable, double-stitched faux leather. It also has a large cutout in the middle for improved breathability.
The seat is relatively large compared to other models. It is approx. 10″ (25.4 cm) long and 7″ (17.7 cm) wide, so it provides plenty of contact surface.
Its attachment system consists of a collar with a bolt/nut easily removed if necessary or slightly tilted forward or backward. It’s also a standard attachment system, so compatible replacements are widely available.
The bike’s seat assembly offers four-way adjustability (front, back, up, down). In addition, its vertical post has several adjustment positions and provides an adjustment span of approx—7″ (17.7 cm).
Thus, the bike should be able to accommodate users comfortably between 5’1″ and 6’4″ (155 – 193 cm). The bike also has a maximum user weight capacity of up to 330 lbs (150 kg), which applies to the seat.
The bike’s handlebar has a pretty standard construction. It has a multi-grip design offering climbing, racing, and standard grips. It also has a small loop bar in the middle that offers the possibility of adopting a close grip. Finally, a layer of high-density foam covers the whole handlebar for extra comfort and an improved grip.
Unfortunately, it lacks HR pulse sensors, and the included fitness monitor does not have a pulse reading function. Also, unlike the seat, the handlebar only offers two-way adjustability (up, down).
YB-007A Drive and resistance
The Yosuda YB-007A comes equipped with a heavy, 40-lb (18 kg) flywheel, and it features a chrome finish with ABS side guards. In addition, it has a perimeter-weighted design for improved inertia and consistent pedaling motion.
The flywheel permits pedaling in reverse. However, since the bike has a simple drive system, it does not allow coasting (or free-wheeling). Instead, the pedals continue to spin for as long as the flywheel is spinning.
The bike’s drivetrain uses a poly-v belt concealed by a large ABS guard. This type of drive system offers several advantages. First, it delivers smoother traction because it generates less vibration than a chain. And, second of all, you don’t have to worry about monthly lubrication.
The Yosuda YB-007A indoor cycling bike features a standard friction resistance system. In addition, it has a felt pad attached under the main oblique frame bar and above the flywheel.
The brake pad connects to the tension dial on top of the oblique frame tube. For instance, when you turn the knob clockwise, the brake pad comes in contact with the flywheel, increasing the drag and the pedaling difficulty.
Since it’s a standard friction brake (not magnetic), it does not have pre-determined tension levels (or clicks). So, tighten the flywheel brake until you get the desired pedaling difficulty.
The tension knob also has an emergency brake function. You can press it down so that the brake pad applies maximum friction to the flywheel, enabling it to stop immediately from spinning.
Since it’s an exercise bike designed for spinning, the Yosuda L-007A comes with a heavy-duty crankset. In addition, it has solid crank arms and metallic pedals with a sawtooth design for an improved grip. Thus, the pedals support the whole weight of the user (up to 330 lbs).
The pedals come equipped with adjustable toe cages, but they don’t have SPD clips for spin shoes. However, they have standard 9/16 threads, so compatible SPD options are widely available.
The Yosuda YB-007A indoor cycling bike has a fitness monitor that offers more functions than a simple unit. First, it has an LCD divided into six sub-sections to show as many workout metrics as possible. It tracks time, distance, total distance, speed, RPM, and calories burned. Unfortunately, it does not have a pulse reading function.
The monitor features a standard 3-button interface (Set, Mode, Reset). The Mode button allows you to swap the display metrics or select Scan Mode for the top display.
The Set button allows you to set up workout goals for your workout. For example, you can select a workout target for time, distance, and calories burned. If a target is assigned, the monitor will count down t until it reaches zero, notifying you that you have completed your goal. And finally, the Reset button clears all the values on the monitor.
The fitness monitor is battery-powered. It starts up when you begin pedaling or pressing a button. It also automatically turns off to save battery if it detects flywheel movement for several minutes.
Please note that the tablet in the image does not come with the bike.
YB-007A Assembly and Maintenance
The bike’s frame comes pre-assembled with all the drive and resistance elements already connected. You only have to assemble the base stabilizers, the seat post, the saddle, the handlebar post, the handlebars, the fitness monitor, and the pedals.
Therefore, it shouldn’t take more than one hour of your time. All the necessary tools come with the bike, and the manual provides precise assembly instructions.
Since the bike’s drivetrain uses a belt, not a chain, it doesn’t require periodic lubrication. However, the bike’s brake pad may need a silicone lubricant, especially if it squeaks when it contacts the flywheel. Other than this, you only have to inspect the bike periodically and re-tighten any potential loose bolts or parts.
