Our Review of the Sprint GB-Mag 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? This is a really nice bike that a look and feel of high quality. Here are some of the things that we like: - Console is wireless, so there are no trailing cables or connectors - Large sweat guard over the flywheel - Water bottle holder included - 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 - Paintwork is finished to a very high standard which gives a great first impressionWhat's it like to ride? It's a super smooth, super quiet bike to ride. Here are our findings: - 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 - The bike has a maximum resistance of about 600w which means that you can sit or stand when cycling and get a really good workout. - 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? No. A good bike, well made and very easy to live with.Anything else to add? This bike has got pretty much everything that you need and is really high quality.Overall Impression? If you're looking for a high quality indoor cycle that requires very little maintenance; is well made; has a great specification and is built to last then this could be the bike for you.
Do you have a question about the Sprint GB-Mag 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've seen a chain driven bike for the same price - why should I buy the belt driven bike? 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. I need a bike to use when the kids are asleep. Would this be OK? A. All belt drive bikes are quiet, and when they also have magnetic resistance they're almost silent. So, yes, this bike will be perfect for you.
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. What's the difference between a light commercial and full commercial grade magnetic indoor cycle? A. It's to do with the level of use that the bikes are designed to take - full commercial bikes can be used all day every day in indoor cycling classes. Light commercial bikes are more suited for use when there are maybe only 3-4 classes per day.
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 Sprint GB-Mag Indoor Cycle
Great sturdy bike Bought bike early 2015 & its had lots of use. Good sturdy bike, smooth, quiet pedal motion in general. Am on 2nd set of pedals (Andy v. helpful), not sure if to be expected or a defect (coming up to 3rd). If you sweat protect frame as rust will form - corrosion treatment could have better. (29/06/2017) Tessa Blackburn - Norwich
Our Reply: Thanks Tessa. Pedals can wear quickly with heavy use and this does happen with all bikes. A good way to protect the frame is to wipe down after use and occassionally apply GT85
Great bike, Great service Andy was fantastic, very responsive and arranged delivery to Channel Islands! Thank you! (27/04/2017) -
Excellent Super bike, its practically silent and it adjusts to fit me (6'2" with relatively long legs) and my wife (5'5" with long back). Bike is easy to assemble; console is basic but gives RPM and time and reads my Polar HRT. Great website and service (thanks Andy), delivery very quick and easy. (14/03/2017) Andrew - Chepstow
Our Reply: Thanks Andrew
First indoor bike I couldn't be happier with the bike & service. All my questions were answered quickly & thoroughly. The advice was great, I'm a wee shorty so (with some measurements) we narrowed the selection down, then Andy steered me to "more bike, less tech", which worked out perfectly. I'm on my bike every day! (05/02/2017) Ruth -
Our Reply: Thanks Ruth - good to know that you're happy with the bike
Great bike, very good value at its pricepoint. The delivery team were very helpfull and carried the heavy box through to where I was to construct it. On opening the box the bike was pretty much pre-assembled, (bonus) 20 minutes later I was enjoying my first experience of a real indoor cycle. This bike is solid, silent and good quality very happy (15/11/2016) -

A quality cycle from a quality company 1st class customer service. Features of all cycles were clearly explained and also what give least problems with maintenance. Having submitted my order the bike arrived in 2 days in the specified time slot. It is a quality product, simple to put together and to adjust for a personal fit.

Excellent quality Good customer service. Quick delivery and easy to assemble. Spin bike is well made, very quiet and easily adjustable for different sizes. I'm 6'2" and the seat post is right on max height level but still feels solid. Only thing I've upgraded is the seat so now comfortable for 90-120min sessions. (01/09/2016) Thomas - London
Our Reply: Thanks Thomas
A good buy Like many others I had very good advice as to which bike would suit my purposes, also like others a bike was suggested that was cheaper than the one I had in mind. Very happy with my Sprint Mag, which is quiet, smooth and gives a good work out. (12/07/2016) Richard - Dorset
Our Reply: Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review.
Excellent Advise & Service! I was a little unsure which cycle to purchase so decided to ring direct. Andy was great at helping me with the different options and advising me on the best model to suit my needs. Even better the cycle he recommended was cheaper than the one I may have purchased! Excellent cycle & service (20/05/2016) Julie -
Our Reply: Thanks Julie - it's good to know that the bike is OK for you
Fantastic Service I'd been looking for a spinning bike for my teenage daughter and didn't know where to start. Indoor cycle not only advised me on the best one to buy with budget etc in mind - but assembled it for me and delivered it to my door within 3 days. Could not recommend their service highly enough! (26/03/2016) Hannah Sutton - London
Our Reply: Thanks Hannah!
Top choice, very pleased with purchase. Top advice given by indoor cycles when I approached them with a number of options for indoor bikes. Very quick delivery, easy to assemble. Great bike for the whole family, very quiet, smooth pedalling action, good selection of resistances and very adjustable for different heights/reach. Very pleased (01/02/2016) Phil - Deal, Kent
Our Reply: Thanks Phil - this is one of the best bikes around
Great bike, great service! I spent a while shopping around looking a good quality, magnetic resistance, belt driven bike with a good heavy fly wheel. This bike does not disappoint! Great quality, good solid feel and its super quiet. Best of all, the communication and service from Andy and Jo is absolutely top notch :) (24/01/2016) Andy - Cheltenham
Our Reply: Thanks for your review!
Great bike...Excellent service. Excellent service from Andy. I'd actually chosen a more expensive model but Andy thought that that this one would be more suitable. I'm really pleased the the bike...it's smooth ,quiet and superb quality...everything I wanted. Very happy..why can't all companies be like this. (23/01/2016) Alan Woolley - Nottingham
Our Reply: Thanks Alan - the GB Mag is one of the best bikes that we have.
Jo Been doing spin classes at least 3 times a week for the last 5 years. Can honestly say that this bike is gym standard. It's completely silent and very sturdy. Increments on the resistance are quite rapid compared to the gym ones - but I prefer this as you don't have to keep adjusting dial. (13/01/2016) Jo - London
Our Reply: That's great - thanks for your review
Very happy Simple to set up and adjust size. The flywheel is very quiet and the resistance change very smooth. It is large for a spin bike but that makes is very study. Computer is wireless but still accurate at detecting rpm. (13/01/2016) -
Our Reply: Many thanks for your review
Gym quality I've only had the bike for a few weeks but my early assessment is that it's everything I had hoped for and expected. It's sturdy, quiet and feels like the spin bikes I have used at the gym. It was easy to assemble. Andy was very helpful in guiding me through the various options. (02/01/2016) Evros - London
Our Reply: Great news - thanks Evros for leaving a review
All companies should be like this Andy via email responded within minutes, offered impartial advice. Even recommended a cheaper bike to the one I was looking at. I ordered the bike two days before Christmas and it arrived late Christmas Eve. And as the bike I ordered was not available they upgraded me FOC. What could be better? (02/01/2016) Colin - High Wycombe
Our Reply: Thanks Colin - pleased that we could help!
Informed, friendly advice with no pressure to buy. Extremely happy with the bike, especially the smooth and controlled magnetic resistance. Would not hesitate to recommend Indoor Cycles. Many thanks to Andy (12/12/2015) Mike - Matlock

Best money I have spent for a long time This is a great piece of equipment, worth every penny. It is solid in design and totally silent. The website proved to be a great source of information.

A Great Buy Had it a few weeks and very pleased. Great build and so quiet compared to my previous (£250 pad-and-chain one). I feel this is built to last. Andy at Indoor Cycles was very helpful in helping me choose, and the 2 man delivery team went above and beyond. (11/09/2015) Toby Barrett - Worcester
Our Reply: Thanks Toby - the GB Mag is one of our best bikes so we're delighted that you also like it!
