First, a few things about the price. Expect to pay anywhere from $1,195 to $1,795 retail for this exact cycle online. Many fitness equipment sites sell this bike and will tell you that you are getting a "deal." Well, as of November 10, 2012 the price range is $1,200 to $1,800. You should always receive free shipping from any online vendor for this product. If not, look elsewhere.
To get a price as low as $1,195 you will have to find and wait for a sale at a site that is targeted towards professionals, yet is not wholesale, which might require a business license or bulk purchase. I have found that Mad Dog Fitness, Spinning's official trademark, often offers specials on all Star Trac bikes. I was going to purchase this particular bike in 2010 for under $1,200 with a $200 special offer. Here is the important part and it may explain the $1,695 price here on Amazon. My husband did his research online and he decided to buy this for me as a birthday present from a small second party retail fitness business he found online. He paid, wait for it... $1,695 in 2010. It was completely assembled and tuned up. This is something that is not done if it comes from most fitness equipment retailers. The tune up works out certain "hitches" that frequently occur in the gear/resistance, crank, and chain with the beginning use of any new gym quality bike. As an instructor who has taught Spin for 17 years I have seen these type of issues over and over again. Beginning with a tuned up bike from the start helps prevent problems later. This is about a $200-$400 value.
Now, about the cycle. I teach Spin and indoor cycle on many different bikes. This remains my favorite. It is why I choose it for my home bike. It offers you a good number of options to adjust the seat and handle bar height. You can adjust the seat and bars fore and aft as well. All of these adjustments are critical. Getting your bike professionally fit to you by a good instructor is an important as a great tune up. The handle bars are wide enough and solid to be very comfortable. This is something that is missing in many lower price indoor cycles.
This bike uses a chain, not a belt, to move the weighted fly wheel. This is one of the reasons that it feels authentic to outdoor bikes. Belts feel smoother, but less realistic. The fly wheel weighs 38 pounds. This is a good size. Cheaper home models can weigh between 25 and 31 pounds. The weight of the fly wheel is important to how hard you work, how the resistance feels (smooth vs choppy, challenging vs too easy), and how simulated hills and speed are performed. In a nut shell - how many calories you burn and how much fun and safe your ride is. A heavier fly wheel means you can increase your work when you want. The other HUGE bonus to the Star Trac line of bikes that many other bikes miss is that the fly wheel weight is on the outside of the wheel as opposed to the center. The centrifugal forces of energy at higher speeds will help you feel as though you are being pulled into your ride. It makes your speed drills and cadence rides a dream.
The stock pedals allow for cycle shoes with SPD cleats. If you prefer to use your Look cleats you will have to change the pedals. You can use traditional running or work out shoes with the stock pedals. My advice is to invest in cycling shoes if you are purchasing an indoor cycle for your home. You will increase your comfort and efficiency on the bike tremendously. You can also say goodbye to numb toes once you wear cycle shoes with cleats and clip in. You are literally part of the bike and you are working when you push and when your leg comes back around.
The last thing I have to say about this bike is that it is gym quality. It is the same bike used in many gyms, including several gyms and studios where I teach. If you are not sure what that means you have not been to a gym in a while. :-) It is heavy in a good way. It is sturdy and and can take years and thousands of hours of rides. Pop some great music on, you do not need to wear a bike helmut to have a fun ride on this bike!
