1. YOSUDA Indoor Exercise Bike Stationary

YOSUDA Indoor Exercise Bike Stationary - Cycling Bike with Belt Drive and 43 Lbs Flywheel

The L-007 Yosuda indoor cycling is a low to mid range home use indoor cycle equipped with belt drive system for a quiet and smooth spinning workout experience.

Its belt drive system is superior to chain drive bikes because it has low-maintenance and does not require lubing. It is also smoother and makes less noise. So, your exercise doesn’t disturb the rest of the family.

What is even more unique about the Yosuda stationary bike is its heavy flywheel. It is equipped with a 43 pounds bidirectional flywheel, which could offer more momentum to give you a challenging exercise experience.

You can pedal forward as well as reverse to simulate different leg muscle groups and benefits a more efficient workout. In terms of resistance, the Yosuda belt driven indoor cycling bike comes with the wool felt-pad friction.

It is not as quiet and smooth as magnetic resistance bikes, but it is smoother and quieter than cheap friction resistance bikes. Thanks to the high-quality wool materials.

This Yosuda stationary bike’s unique resistance material allows you to increase or decrease the cycling resistance to choose a different training level by a simple twist without creating annoying noise.

The Yosuda belt drive spin bike also has the press down emergency knob to stop the flywheel immediately if you need to dismount the bike. To make sure the sweat doesn’t reach the felt-pad and it stays dry, this indoor cycling bike by Yosuda has a unique water proof flywheel and resistance protection guard.

It is an important feature in friction bikes which I noticed many Yosuda indoor cycling bike stationary reviews forget to mention it. Thanks to this durable protection cover, the felt-pad can last years.

My Verdict:

This Yosuda indoor cycling trainer has a fully customizable seat. It is also padded to provide extra support during long rides. The center cutout ergonomic design of the saddle offers anatomic relief and ventilation to prevent overheating during summer rides.

Beyond the ergonomic design and comfortable seat, this stationary bike is simply built to last with a 300 pound weight maximum and a solid, steel frame.

As for the handlebars, the L007 Yosuda cycle exercise bike can be adjusted only vertically and not horizontally. But, don’t worry, the Yosuda indoor cycling bike L007 frame’s built to comfortably and safely fit most riders.

As long your inseam fall between 28.3 to 37 inches, you shouldn’t have any problem riding this Yosuda indoor spin bike. There is also a media holder built-in the handlebars. It allows you to watch spin workout videos online or watch your favorite show to remain entertained.

This top home budget exercise bike by Yosuda is equipped with a basic no-backlit LCD monitor. It tracks your time, speed, distance, calories burned and odometer While you are cycling to give you a more scientific exercise data and keep you aware of your performance.

The monitor does not have any type of wireless connection (Bluetooth and ANT/+). So, you wouldn’t be able to connect the bike to Apps to save your workouts. But that is not uncommon among the budget spin bikes.

This model also features front foot tube wheels to help you move the bike easily and includes the water bottle holder to make sure you are hydrated on during the exercise.

Supports up to 300lbs in all spinning positions, including out of the saddle, this spin cycle bike by Yosuda has solid crank arms and anti-slip pedals. They are designed with adjustable toe cages and straps to make your cycling safer.

The pedals don’t have SPD elements for clipless cycling shoes but they have the standard 16/9″ pedal thread and their SPD replacements are available widely.

This exercise bike comes with six months warranty. Unfortunately the only way to order parts under the warranty is to contact the seller on Amazon because the Yosuda does not have a website or direct contact information.

If you have any issue, I suggest you send an email through Amazon and wait for the seller to respond, they are very responsive, according to many reviews. But if they don’t respond, write a review explaining the problem that you need help with.

The main body of the bike comes pre-assembled with the flywheel attached. You will need to install the pedals, seat, handlebars, monitor, and the stabilizer feet. Yosuda indoor cycling bike stationary manual and assembly tools are included in the box.

This bike ships in one box and requires two people for transportation. Overall the Yosuda indoor bike assembly is easy and I don’t suggest spending the extra $70 for bike assembly. The Yosuda indoor cycling bike stationary assembly instructions will lead you through the process step by step.

Last but not least the Yosuda bike exercise machine comes with top of the line q-factors. With 177 mm distance between the pedals, this Yosuda spin bike is going to provide a low-impact and comfortable ride.

2. YOSUDA Indoor Cycling Bike Stationary

YOSUDA Indoor Cycling Bike Stationary - Cycle Bike with Ipad Mount & Comfortable Seat Cushion

This Yosuda indoor cycling Bike offers all of the necessities for a good cycling workout along with everything at-home fitness enthusiasts novice could wish for.

With over 90% 4 and 5 star user rating is clear indication of L-001A Yosuda belt spin bike’s quality and value. L-001A Yosuda stationary exercise bike’s high-ratings lead Amazon to add this bike to “Amazon’s Choice” category.

Featuring the belt driven system and s heavy 35-pound flywheel provides a smoother and quieter ride than chain bikes. Unlike the chain, there is no need to lube the belt or deal with stiff links in the chain.

This budget exercise bike by Yosuda is the cheapest model among the three Yosuda bikes. While it is a great value bike, it is not as good as the Yosuda Fitness bike ranked first in this review. Here is a quick comparison between these indoor cycle exercise bikes by Yosuda.

The L-001A best budget Yosuda stationary bike has a lighter flywheel (35 pounds vs 43 pounds), less weight capacity ( 270 pounds vs 300 pounds) and a basic seat (padded but not center cutout vs padded and center cutout).

Also, this bike is more compact that the other Yosuda home exercise bike. Therefore, it has a slightly less user inseam capacity (25″-35″ vs 28.3″ to 37″). Other than the mentioned differences, these budget best indoor cycling bikes by Yosuda are the same.

This Yosuda spin bike for home features a corrosion resistance coated sturdy steel frame and crank that adds quality and durability to go to the distance needed for novice indoor cycling enthusiasts.

The Yosuda indoor cycling bike comes with fully adjustable seat and a 2-way adjustable handlebars that offer a completely customizable experience for ultimate rider’s comfort and compatibility.

The adjustable saddle allows for multiple people in your family to use it efficiently and comfortably as long as their inseam is not shorter than 25 inches and longer than 35 inches.

My Verdict:

The YOSUDA cycling bike comes with a basic non-backlit digital monitor. It doesn’t feature RPM or wireless connection (Bluetooth, ANT/+) which is expected for spin bikes under $300.

The LCD monitor displays your time, speed, distance, calories burned and odometer. These computer calculations and readings allow you to keep track of your progress and understand your performance.

Yosuda fitness equipment brand also also provides a free flat bracket so that you can keep your phone/tablet on the bike to watch videos or listen to music and stay entertained while exercising.

A1 Yosuda Fitness indoor exercise bike features a micro-tension friction resistance. Obviously it is not as maintenance-free and as quiet as magnetic exercise bikes. But since it has high-quality wool pads, you don’t need to worry about changing the felt-pads for years.

The benefits of friction system is that no matter your fitness level, with a turn of the knob, you can make the ride extremely high-intensity to burn more calories and do strength workouts on the bike.

With safety and convenience in mind, the Yosuda indoor bike has adjustment knob quick stop. This home exercise bike allows you to quickly stop your workout at any time by pressing the emergency stop button.

One of the Yosuda Fitness affordable exercise bike features that no other cheap spin bike can beat, is its q-factor (177 mm). And In terms of q-factor, it is safe to say this Yosuda small exercise bike beats every competitors under $300.

The distance between the pedals is called q-factor. Wide q-factors tend to keep the rider’s feet too much apart. Therefore, the feet, knees and hips can not stay aligned. And that causes stress on the lower-body joints.

Unfortunately often cheap indoor cycling bikes have too much distance between the pedals (wide q-factors) and can cause discomfort on the long rides. Thankfully the L-A1 compact exercise bike by Yosuda has a surprisingly narrow q-factor which minimizes impact and provides comfort for longer cardio workout.

The Yosuda affordable spin bike comes with toe clips and strap that go over your foot. It does not come with the clip-in pedals/spd pedals that you would use for cycling shoes. You can, however, add any type of pedals you want because they are 16/9″ standard pedals.

The pedals are high quality and won’t snap off of the crank if you ride the bike out of the saddle. As for assembly, the tools are included and it is very easy. Following the Yosuda indoor cycling bike manual, it shouldn’t take you more than 30 minutes.

The parts that needs assembly are the handlebars, seat, bike computer, pedals, front and rear bases. The YOSUDA Indoor Cycling Bike Stationary – Cycle Bike with iPad Mount & Comfortable Seat Cushion also includes transport wheels, feet levelers, and a water bottle holder.

Note: If you are not happy with the Yosuda indoor cycling bike stationary parts or quality in general, you can return the bike and receive a full refund.

YOSUDA Spin Bike Buying Guide:

Warranty:
There are a few thing to know When buying Yosuda exercise bikes. One of them is that Yosuda Fitness still does not have a direct contact information or a website.

Therefore, if you need to order parts under warranty, you will have to contact the seller on Amazon. In most cases they responded promptly but sometime they seem to have ignored the costumers’ first email.

Bidirectional fixed-wheel (fix-gear):
Earlier in this Yosuda spin bike reviews I mentioned these bike are fixed-wheel and bidirectional. What it means is that the flywheel and the pedals are fixed together.

The disadvantage to this system is that in case of emergency, you will need to wait for the flywheel to stop turning before you can get off the bike. The advantage is that you can pedal forward and reverse to simulate more leg muscles.

Handlebars:
Adjustable handlebar allows for multiple people in your household to use the equipment comfortably and efficiently. Having the correct handlebar adjustment is important to assure you won’t hurt your back while giving it your all.

While the Yosuda indoor stationary exercise bikes don’t allow 4-way adjustment (fore/aft up/down), these bikes feature excellent parallel frames that make sure the riders fit the bike comfortable. It is the same frame type found on the Life Fitness IC1 bike. So, as long as you fall within the recommended inseam, these Yusoda spinning bikes should be fine for you.

Bike Q-Factors:
One of my most favorite features that I have already talked about in this Yosuda exercise bike reviews is the q-factors. According to the seller, these Yosuda spin bikes feature 177 mm q-factor.

Unlike wide q-factors which is too common in the budget spin bike category, the Yosuda exercise bikes’ narrow q-factors keep your feet aligned with your knees and hips for a low-impact workout.

The Q factor is one of the most important features to look at on a Spin Bike. The Q factor is the distance between the inside of the pedal attachments on the crank arms on either side or, more simply, the width of the gap between the two paths your feet.

Bike Computers:
When buying Yosuda indoor cycling bikes, you will receive a basic computer. Like all the spin bikes under $500, they are not ANT/+ or Bluetooth enabled so you can’t track daily workouts on the apps.

These computers don’t have backlit which means if you want to see the stats, you will have to keep the room light on during the low-light condition.

Spin bike Flywheel:
The weight of the flywheel is a very important feature to look at when buying a spin bike. Specially if the bike has friction resistance system similar to Yosuda indoor cycling bikes.

Light flywheels tends to be jerky and not stable, specially during high-intensity. The heavier the flywheels tends to provide more momentum and a smoother ride. Thankfully, Yosuda spin cycles feature a 35 to 45 pounds significantly enhances experience a near realistic bike ride whilst ensuring safety.

Spinning Clothing and Accessories:

Cycling shoes:
Spinning shoes provide precision ergonomic fit, adding comfort and security to all of your rides. They allow you get the most out of every pedals stroke with fiberglass reinforced sole, which provides optimal stiffness and maximizes power transfer.

Padded shorts:
Unlike regular shorts, the bike cycling shorts with padding do not irritate the skin. They are designed with skin-friendly materials. The bicycle shorts have a great moisture feature and a four-way performance stretch and multi-panel anatomic design for superior chafe-free comfort.

Exercise bike mat:
Exercise equipment usually vibrates and scratch the floor on the hard surface. Buying a floor protection mat for spin bike can save your carpets and hard floors from damages of stationary bikes and other heavy exercise equipment. Dense mats can also absorb vibration, noise, and impact caused when exercising on cardio equipment. Spin bike floor mats are also easier to clean compared to hardwood floor or carpet.

Bike seat and cushion:
Yosuda exercise bikes stationary features padded unisex seats. They are comfortable but they are not as comfortable as gender-specific bike seats. Therefore, if only one person uses the bike, you may want to consider changing the seat. Before doing that, I suggest you consider adding a spin bike gel seat cushion. They are cheap and provide good support for spin exercise.

Final Word on YOSUDA Cycling Bikes:

Overall these Yosuda stationary bikes are designed with all the basic necessities to help you stay on top of your fitness goals. They are not for pro cyclists but with no doubt the Yosuda spin cycles provide everything a novice trainee needs.

The close to natural pedal stroke, comfortable feel of the bike’s saddle, adjustable handlebar and seating keep this exercise bike the perfect cycling trainer for your in-home gym.

Additionally, these affordable best indoor exercise bikes by Yosuda feature a combination of belt drivetrain and heavy flywheels which offer a smooth and relatively quiet workout.

The lightweight compact design and transport wheels make this cycling bike easy to move and store. And more importantly, the narrow q-factors tend to make the ride safer and and more comfortable.

However, if live in small apartment and looking for a quieter bike, I suggest the Efitment indoor cycling bikes. They have magnetic resistance, RPM computers and 4-way adjustable handlebars.
