Best Budget Indoor Bikes – XS Sports

XS sports exercise cycle

One of the main things I look for when reviewing the best budget spinning bikes is whether or not it’s a ‘proper’ spin bike – as in can it take some punishment? Is is suitable for taller people? Can you stand up on the pedals?

The XS sports exercise cycle ticks all of the boxes on build quality and comes in at a very reasonable price too.

This exercise bike has a 15kg, chain-driven flywheel and the same kind of adjustments you’d expect at the gym. The bars and seat are fully adjustable, making this a good choice if there’ll be more than one person using it.

The LCD computer isn’t anything fancy but shows calories, distance, time, speed and, unusually for bikes in this price range, it also has pulse sensors. Max user weight is 125kg and it’s fine for all heights, even tall riders.

This bike represents great value for money and is perfect for beginners or anyone seeking a good solid spin bike.
