If you’re in the market for a stationary cycle for your health club or home gym, you’re going to want to do your homework. After all, it’s a significant investment in your hard-earned money. And you want it to deliver a kick-ass workout for a long time without breaking down. That’s especially true for cycles used in the gym where spin classes, group exercise workouts, and general use can rack up a lot of hours on the bike, time in the saddle, and wear and tear on the components.
Start your search on Google, and you’ll quickly find that there are millions of pages with information about stationary cycles and spinning bikes designed to help you exercise, burn more calories, lose weight, and stay in shape. Exercise bikes have been around for a long time. And once those got old and tired, the trend migrated to the spinning cycle, along with a surge in spin classes at health clubs around the country. For a while, spin cycle manufacturers could barely keep up with demand for run-of-the-mill cycles. In fact, spinning has remained one of the Top 20 most popular fitness trends in the U.S. for years, according to an annual report published by the American College of Sports Medicine.
But as more and more companies entered the market to tap into the boom in spinning and indoor cycling, consumers demanded more from this popular piece of exercise equipment. Up until this point most stationary spinning bikes were designed with parts that didn’t hold up well to the heavy use at a gym, or the millions of revolutions pedaled at home by someone training indoors.
And while treadmill manufacturers kept looking for ways to integrate technology, the standard design on the typical spin cycle included an adjustable tension lever and nothing else. And then the fitness manufacturer Diamondback decided to throw away the plans for the typical indoor cycle and build something better, faster, and more reliable. Say hello to the Diamondback 510Ic Indoor Cycle Bike.
The Diamondback 510Ic Indoor Cycle Bike represents a revolution in stationary cycles. It’s loaded with an on-board computer that can track your speed, heart rate, calories burned, distance, duration of your workout, and amount of power you’re generating every time you crank the pedals. It comes pre-programmed with 14 training programs and 16 adjustable resistance levels.
Instead of the one-size-fits-all approach, the handlebars and seat are both adjustable for height and reach to accommodate any sized person up to 300 pounds. To protect your investment, it’s designed with a heavy-duty 32-pound flywheel that will keep humming along for thousands of hours without breaking down. And it’s backed by a lifetime warranty on the frame and brake, with a respectable limited warranty on parts and labor.
If you buy this stationary cycle for personal use, the last thing you’re going to do is hang your laundry on the handlebars and let it collect dust like a lot of exercise bikes out there. It’s such a sweet ride, you’ll look forward to hopping on to the saddle and pedaling through another workout. And if you outfit your gym or health club with the Diamondback 510Ic Indoor Cycle Bike, expect to see a surge in spin class participation and requests for more cycles in your cardio room. Enjoy the ride.
