The bike packaging could be improved - the box looked quite damaged upon arrival, but luckily it was just the box and the bike itself was fine - I think it's just that the packaging damages easily, but the bike should be well intact upon arrival.
Note, the bike is heavy - maybe 200lb. I'm a big strong guy, but someone smaller or not as strong would benefit from a helping hand to assemble the bike. The bike comes about 70% to 80% assembled, which is great in many ways but it can be cumbersome to remove from the box. Remaining assembly is relatively straight-forward but still took me about an hour.
The digital display thing seems a bit weak - it's battery powered and not so bright. If you're cycling in the dark or watching a movie etc, it would be unreadable, though I just don't need the display so it's not a negative for me.
I strongly recommend this bike - even though it's not cheap, you get what you pay for - it's worth it.
Get a mat for underneath... this thing is heavy and you will sweat a lot!
The Sole Fitness SB700 is an exceptionally well-made spin bike. It is extremely heavy which means you'll have your work cut our for you upon delivery. About 154 pounds of mostly solid metal, 48 pounds of which is the massive flywheel. One of the reasons the bike is so smooth spinning is because of that massive flywheel. Very smooth, amazingly quiet.
It took me about 30 minutes to put the bike together. The seat, seat post and handlebar post is pre-installed. Really all that remains to be done is to install the front and rear stabilizer bars with bolts, curved washers and nuts. Then there is a small plastic piece that screws on to the top of the rear stabilizer bar and just cleans up the appearance of the area where it attaches. That's a nice touch.
Next you'll attach the pedals and use caution that you do not cross thread the pedals when tightening. Four bolts, washers and lock washers are used to attach the handlebar to the mounting plate and again you'll want to ensure you don't strip or cross-thread as you install the bolts. I had a problem with mine and ended up taking the mounting plate off temporarily so that I could run the bolt though from the back side just to realign any bent threads and clear out any shavings that may have been in there causing the problem. After that the bolts screwed in without any further issues.
The digital display attaches to the mounting bracked with a single screw. There is no instruction for this in the manual but there is included in the parts bag, a small 1 inch square piece of foam that I presume was to be placed between the display and the mounting clamp. You don't need to over-tighten this since you are screwing into plastic threads.
Finally you need to snip a zip-tie strap to release the sensor cable from the frame which then lets you thread that cable through the frame down to where you will install the transmitter. Plug the connector into the transmitter and than using the velcro mounting point, stick the transmitter to that velcro.
The installation manual was a little sketchy and did not explain all the small details very well. Hopefully I've cleared up most of the gray areas through my experience putting it together.
The SB700 is a joy to ride. It is solid and does not wobble at all. Even on a carpet it was rock solid. Fore and aft adjustment and height adjustment on both the seat and handlebar had an extremely wide range of travel to accommodate just about any sized rider. The cam and lever locking mechanism seems strong and is relatively easy to readjust so other people in your household who may be riding the bike can adjust the settings to their liking.
The tension adjustment and braking on this bike is simply one of the best I've used as well. There was no squealing, no vibration, no pulsing. It was just perfect.
The display was easy to read and has a backlight that is lit for a few seconds when you change modes. Otherwise it is easy to read with nice large digits. Compatible heart rate monitor chest straps will also be picked up by the display so that you can monitor your heart rate as well.
Aside from the fact that the installation manual was a bit unclear in certain areas and that this bike is difficult to get to where you want it because of its weight, once it's up and running, it's fantastic. One of the nicest spinning bikes I've ridden on, health clubs included. The slight handlebar wobble that I mentioned in my video is very minimal and mostly a non-issue.
I also have to give a big, I mean really big, thumbs up for Sole customer service. The first bike that was delivered to me had been mis-handled during shipment and the bottom pieces where the stability bars attach to were bent to such an extent that I could not put the bike together. I made two phone calls to Sole and after viewing the photos that I had posted in the customer images area, they quickly made the decision to ship a new bike to me and pick up the origiinal one at absolutely no cost to me. It doesn't get much better than that. Stellar!
You can spend far less for a spln bike of decidedly lesser quality and you can also spend quite a bit more for a spinning bike. The less expensive bikes simply can't compare as far as stability, smoothness of pedaling or adjustability. The more expensive bikes can't really offer much superiority in any area that I can readily think of.
The Sole Fitness SB700 represents an excellent value in a serious spinning bike. It's a solid performer, has a very attractive & functional design and is fairly priced.
UPDATE: 1/16/2012 - I enjoy listening to podcasts while I work out and usually those podcasts are on my iPhone. I had been noticing an erratic heartbeat indication on the display when using the chest strap sensor and it was almost by accident that I discovered that proximity of the iPhone to the unit was causing this problem. When I moved the iPhone across the room, the problem went away. If I moved the iPhone back onto the water bottle holder where I place it when working out, the interference resumed. I'll be calling Sole to inquire about this and report back if I learn anything of merit.
The build quality is top notch and the ride and workouts are excellent. It is super quiet and highly adjustable. It is pricier than some of the other choices, but the quality is definitely superior and its also esthetically pleasing. Definitely highly recommended!
NOTE: THE INSTRUCTIONS for the CONSOLE are INCORRECT in both the owners manual and the Cycling Console Instruction Manual. The buttons are REVERSED. I.e. left is right and right is left so when the instructions say push the left button, push the right button instead.
