Our Review of the Gym Gear M.Sport Magnetic Indoor CycleHow Easy is the Indoor Cycle to Build? Extremely simple to build. Attach the front and rear stabilisers, seat, handlebars and console and you're ready to ride.What are the first impressions? Fantastic. There are some really nice details on this indoor cycle which make it stand out from the crowd. Here are some of the things that we like: - Console is wireless, so there are no trailing cables or connectors - Both seat and handlebars can be adjusted horizontally and vertically so that you can achieve your perfect cycling position - It's a magnetic resistance bike so there's virtually no maintenance - Pedals can take cycling shoes or normal training shoes - Maximum user weight is nearly 19st which is very high for an indoor cycle - Paintwork is finished to a very high standard which gives a great first impressionWhat's it like to ride? The Gym Gear M.Sport is brilliant to ride. It's very quiet and smooth as a result of the 20kg equivalent flywheel and the belt drive. We were so impressed with the bike that we gave it to 6 spin class instructors for the day to try it out. The comments that they had included: - It's easy to control the resistance by turning the control knob through a series of clicks (there are over 30 resistance levels). You can then always work to the same resistance settings throughout your training session - Because it has magnetic resistance there is no wear, so your training sessions can be repeated time and again without having to compensate for bike wear - Incredibly quiet and smooth - Can withstand really hard training sessions. At high resistance and high speeds the bike is very stable - Emergency stop is a great feature if you need to stop pedalling in a hurry. It's also very accessable and easy to useAny niggles? None - pound for pound this has to be the best indoor cycle in the UK.Anything else to add? This is an indoor cycle that's very easy to live with. There's no routine maintenance, other than keeping the bike clean. If the drive belt needs adjusting then it's very easy to do but it's something that you won't need to do very often.Overall Impression? This is a great indoor cycle. It's equally at home in a spinning class as it is in a home environment, and it has all of the features that you could ever need. A good warranty is provided with the bike should there be any problems. At the time of writing this review the price of this indoor cycle is well under £1000 which is incredible given the quality - there are cycles which are twice the price which really don't match up to the Gym Gear M.Sport.
Do you have a question about the Gym Gear M Sport Indoor Cycle?
If you can't find the answer that you're looking for below then please click here and ask us a question. If we're online we'll give you an answer immediately, otherwise we'll try our best to respond on the same working day.
Cycle Specific Questions Q. I'm in training for Iron Man and want a heavy duty spin bike (approx 1.5 hours per day usage). What do you recommend? A. We'd suggest a full commercial bike such as the Gym Gear M.Sport. This is designed for heavy use and will be more than suitable for your needs.
Q. I've seen a chain driven bike for the same price - why should I buy the belt driven Gym Gear? A. We always recommend buying a belt driven bike. They're quieter, cleaner and require less maintenance. Unless you like covering yourself in oil and frequently maintaining your bike, then avoid a chain bike and buy a belt drive.
Q. There's a part missing from the console - I've checked the manual and it says that I have to attach this part to the bike? A. You're referring to the console transmitter - it's already attached to the bike. Just put the console on the bike, start pedalling and you'll find that the console works.
Q. Do the pedals take SPD cleats? A. Yes. You can use this bike with cycling shoes.
Q. I read somewhere that this is the bike that you recommend. Can you tell me why? A. We recommend a number of bikes on our site, but we recommend the Gym Gear M.Sport because it's a full commercial bike; it has a belt drive; it has magnetic resistance; the build quality is excellent and it's just about the best indoor cycle that you can get for under £1000.
Q. Will the padded seat fit on this bike? A. Yes - the bike will accept all standard bike seats, including our padded seat.
General Questions Q. Is this bike difficult to assemble? A. No - instructions are included and we cover the build in our review of the bike as well. Just pay particular attention to attaching the pedals correctly.
Q. Can you assemble the bike for me? A. Yes. We can deliver the bike fully assembled. We will pack/wrap the bike for transportation but can't accept liability for any damage that is caused whilst the bike is in transit. Alternatively, we can arrange for a technician to visit your home to build the bike for you at an additional cost (please ask for current prices).
Q. Do I need a mat underneath the bike? A. We recommend that you have a mat underneath your indoor cycle to protect the floor but it's entirely up to you.
Q. Do you sell second hand or refurbished bikes? A. Generally not. Unfortunately it's not cost effective for us to refurbish indoor cycles to a standard that would be in keeping with our reputation. To fully refurbish an indoor cycle, the crank; crank arms; flywheel bearings; drive belt; pedals; seat and handlebars all need to be replaced. In addition, the frame needs to be checked for corrosion and distortion. In doing this work to the correct standard, the price of a fully refurbished indoor bike would be about the same as a new one. It's for this reason that we don't normally offer refurbished or second hand bikes for sale, and we strongly recommend that you fully understand how a bike has been refurbished before buying one.
Here are the customer reviews of the Gym Gear M Sport Indoor Cycle
5 stars all round.......... The bike is superb - its very robust & feels like it will last a long time. Very easy to unpack & assemble. Only slight gripe is the console which could be a bit larger & clearer. Service from Indoor Cycles is superb - excellent advice from Andy who clearly knows his products. (24/01/2017) Michael - Kent
Our Reply: Thanks Michael - this is defintely one of our best bikes
Excellent service and bike. Good reviews of both the bike and service, plus a really helpful phone call with Andy on my requirements for the bike made me chose this bike. Arrived quickly, easy to assemble, this bike is better than most gym bikes I've used. Extremely pleased and would definitely recommend to anyone. (28/06/2016) Sarah - Broxbourne
Our Reply: Thanks Sarah - glad that you like the bike
Excellent choice.... When seeking advice you invariably spend more and I am so glad that I did. I can see why they label this bike as their favourite and it is absolutely superb. I have used it 11 times in 10 days! (25/01/2016) Lee - Herts
Our Reply: Thanks Lee - it's a fantastic bike
Excellent Bike & Service. I decided to usde indoor-cycles after viewing their wide range of choice and reading all the positive feedback. After I narrowed it down to a few cycles I spoke to Andy who discussed the needs of our gym and helped me decide the final model - which has since been a big hit with in our gym. (03/11/2015) Mark - Devon
Our Reply: Many thanks Mark - the M Sport is just about the best commercial grade bike you can buy.
Efficient service I ordered the bike on a Wednesday and because I am so unpractical I paid for it to be pre assembled. It was delivered on the Friday, all ready to ride. It is very smooth, I have had it a couple of weeks and am very pleased with its performance. (07/10/2015) Steve - Cheltenham
Our Reply: Thanks Steve - glad that you like the bike

Delighted Can't beleive the difference it makes on a 'proper' spinning bike. After years on a rust heap from eBay that deafened I am delighted with my purchase and service. Incidentally it was a doddle to set up without any tears. Thanks all round. (03/03/2015) Bill - Croydon
Our Reply: Thanks for your review Bill - you're absolutely right that a good quality bike makes all the difference to your cycling
Fantastic bike We wanted a spin bike to replicate spin and vibe cycle style classes at home - this bike feels the same as a bike in the gym, it is really sturdy, you can climb at high resistance and spin fast. If you do vibe cycle you can do all the dips and moves without any movement from the bike. Thanks Andy! (22/02/2015) Anna & Ed - Hythe.
Our Reply: Thanks for your review Anna
Quality bike and matching service. The M Sport is an impressive-looking, well constructed, and well-functioning spinning bike. Everything about it shouts quality, sturdiness, and longevity. In the fortnight I have had it, it has been a joy to ride. Service from Andy has been excellent, and I would certainly recommend this company. (19/02/2015) Jim - Keighley

Highly recommended Solid, well-engineered and really well finished. Very quiet and smooth in use with a good range of adjustment. Computer works well and picks up heart rate really easily. Friendly, expert advice from Andy when we travelled up to Stoke to try out a few bikes. (09/10/2014) Dominic - Southampton
Our Reply: Thanks Dominic for both taking the time to visit us and for the review. It says a lot for this bike that you chose it over some of more expensive bikes that we have on display.

Excellent Studio Bike Just set up my own Studio and had spent a while looking round for good value bikes that were able to take constant use in a studio. These were recommended to me by Andy at Indoor Cycles and I have to say they are superb. Super smooth and quite, comfortable and the clients love them. Thanks Andy. (01/07/2014) Jon - Tenby
Our Reply: Thanks Jon - it's great that your spin class customers like the Gym Gear bikes
excellent spin bike I have been spinning for approx 2years and finally decided to buy my own bike to have the ability to spin when I want to. This bike is solid, quiet, comfortable and an excellent buy. I am over the moon with it. Thank you Andy for your advice and happy spinning to all! (03/04/2014) cris - Scottish Borders

Great bike Really glad I spent some extra money to get a bike like this, which feels rock solid and stable even though I'm about 105kg. I have to admit that my cycling had dwindled away as I got older and more nervous about stupid drivers out on the roads, but this has got me well and truly back in the saddle. (26/03/2014) Paul - Tunbridge Wells
Our Reply: Thanks for your comments Paul - great news that you're enjoying using the bike
An excellent indoor bike Very, very happy with my purchase. The bike is a dream to ride - huge adjustability in the riding position, and a quiet, smooth action. I'm 2 metres tall and weigh 100kg and it feels rock-solid. Finally great customer service throughout from 'Indoor Cycles' - wouldn't hesitate to recommend. (13/02/2014) Antony - West London
Our Reply: Thanks Antony - it's a great bike and we're pleased we've been able to meet your service expectations.
Great service, excellent product. Had great service in choosing the best spin bike for my needs. I always think the way to judge a company is how they deal with a problem. My first bike was delivered with some damage. This was dealt with really well with no fuss. New bike delivered and is excellent. Recommend highly. (12/02/2014) Paul - Shropshire
Our Reply: Thanks for your comments Paul - sorry about the original problem but great news that all is now OK

Excellent Service Save yourself a lot of time & effort on research by calling Andy at Indoor Cycles first. Excellent service from the moment I called. He resolved a seat post issue within a day a new sp had arrived. The bike is excellent well worth the money. (23/12/2013) Paul - Aberdeen
Our Reply: Thanks for your comments Paul - like a number of our other customers, you've now seen how great this bike is.
Excellent Really glad I bought this bike rather than any other of a similar price. It was very easy to assemble and is really solid. The ride is beautifully quiet so as not to disturb others. Great recommendation from Andy at Indoor Cycles. (30/09/2013) Steve - Sussex
