By Steve Bowman on July 19, 2010
19July 2010: I purchased this item in mid-June, and have owned it for several weeks. I got it as a replacement for the used StairMaster PT4400 I had and loved, but it broke down on me. I paid $1200 and did not want another used one at +$4K, so I looked for other options. I never even considered a "spin" bike, because I did not know what they were! However, I wanted to keep costs under $400. One day in a Sports Chalet, I tried one---BLADEZ FITNESS JET, a solid bike. I exercised for about 5 minutes and knew the spin bike would meet my need for cardio. However, the JET was $599, over my budget.

RESEARCH: I did a LOT of research on the internet, and boy, these spin bikes have been falling like rocks! I finally found the Proform 290 SPX at a store called the Sports Authority for $299 (regularly $399). They just put one together that was not even on the floor yet, so I had to go in the back to test it. After a couple of minutes, I again saw that a spin bike would work, so I purchased it. My experience at some spin classes at 24 Hour Fitness taught me that the standard seat would be too uncomfortable, so I also purchased an old-school wide seat with jell padding, which turned out to be a good decision.

ASSEMBLY: I am NOT a mechanically inclined guy, and this thing was easy for me to put together. The only things to attach were the handlebars, peddles, and the feet, and the tools were all supplied, although I used my ratchet wrench because it was faster.

WORKING OUT: The bike is pretty stable. My weight was about 250 when I started out, and the Proform 290 SPX is rated at a max weight of 250lbs, but I know items like these have a "safety factor" and can take more weight than 250lbs. I get a great workout with this bike.

I hate to rain on the parade of praise for the ProForm 290SPX Indoor Cycle Trainer, but my experience with this spinning bike is quite different from what most of the positive comments are saying.

Where to begin... I paid $274 for the 290SPX at Sports Authority. I've seen the bike as low as $259 at BJ's.

It has a good looking design and a quick glance will leave you with a very favorable impression. Once you really start using the bike though, you will quickly find out why this is a "budget" spinning bike.

First the pros for the bike.
1. It was mostly pre-assembled. Finishing off the setup was a quick affair which included removing the shipping brackets, installing the front and rear stabilizers and leveling feet. Attaching the pedals to the cranks. Inserting the handlebar post in the frame, attaching the handlebar to the handlebar post. Inserting the seat post into the frame, attaching the seat to the seat carriage and inserting the seat carriage into the seat post.
2. Seat and Handlebars have a good range of adjustment. Unless you are very short or very tall, you should be able to get a good fit on the bike.
3. The heavy flywheel results in the bike having a good inertia feel when spinning.

1. The handlebar post has a significant amount of left-right play which is a nuisance during aggressive spinning. No matter how tightly you adjust the knob, it will not eliminate the side-to-side movement because the knob is only applying force to the front of the handlebar post, not the side. The only way to alleviate this movement would be to fashion some sort of sleeve or shim in addition to the plastic sleeve that is already present.

I've been researching spinning bikes for home use for several months. Wanted to find something that is solid and good quality. Reading the original review about this bike on Amazon.com was extremely informative and important. I kept coming back to it to get more details. It was a great reference for me when I went shopping. So when I found the bike in a local sporting store, I knew what I had to look for & look at closely. I tested it and found that I had to look no further. I purchased it & brought it home on 7/30/10.

Here's what I found:
Budget-friendly. Simple as that.

Made by a division of Ion Fitness which also makes several other bikes including Nordictrack. Proform has been around a while so the quality and reputation are there.

Bike is heavy, solid, & very good quality. All parts were well wrapped & assembly was a snap. From reading reviews, I knew that there would be very few parts because the main body of the bike is one piece. Comes with enough bolt/screws, washers and tools. I didn't find the instructions confusing but I had done so much research that it was pretty easy to figure out. It was handle bars, seat, & bottom braces. That was about it. Took us 30 minutes tops. IMPORTANT NOTE: Remember to really tighten the seat when you get it attached. I've read some reviews stating this was difficult. Same goes with the handle bars. The knob on the front of the bike by the handle bars works to both adjust the height of the bars as well as tightens them so they don't wobble.

I once had a computerized magnetic resistance bike & it was a hassle to assemble in comparison. I love the simplicity of this bike.

Handle bars & seat are very smooth adjustment for both height & length of your body.
