Rating: 90.25/100. Upright exercise bike with heavy duty flywheel (48 lbs) provides stable frame and feel when exercising. Good cardiovascular workout with stylish LCD display.
The SOLE SB700 is a compact, comfortable bike that will be efficient for cyclists looking to maintain training indoors while mimicking their road bike. New riders will also enjoy the fast and easy setup and quiet flywheel while building their cardio stamina. This bike is extremely affordable, easy to move and provides your basic necessities for an indoor trainer.
This bike weighs in at 140lbs including a 48lb flywheel that is one of the quietest bikes on the market. You will enjoy riding this sleek model without the noise you may hear from other bikes you’d find in a gym. The seat is smaller than others on this model, looking more like that you’d see on a road bike while still providing cushion and comfort. The red leather accents on the seat add to its appeal. The wheels at the front of the bike make it easy to roll on a firm surface and the thin handlebars allow this bike to take up minimal room in your home.
The adjustment knobs on this bike are unique in that they are what could be found on quick-release tires on a road bike. For road cyclists this will be very familiar and for new cyclists a feature that is easy to use but may take a couple uses to adjust to. The pedals on this bike are equipped with cages only so you can ride in your running shoes. For cyclists looking to clip in, you would need to switch to different pedals to accommodate the type of clip.
The console on the SB700 is small and efficient. It is centred on the handlebars surrounded by dual water bottle holders. If you are looking for a smaller screen with the necessary features, this is the right fit. While this model doesn’t provide iPod docks, fans or detailed screen features, it gives you the information you need for a great ride. The console provides your RPMs in a number format and a scale measurement, estimated calories burned, distance in km or mi, speed, time and the option for heart rate if you purchase a separate monitor compatible. The screen also has an LED-illuminating feature if you are riding in dim lighting and need to check in on your statistics.
Overall, this bike is a great option for riders looking for a simple, sleek and efficient way to ride indoors. The quiet flywheel and comfortable seat make this bike a wonderful pick!
