Comfort and Ease of Use
Because of its maximum user weight capacity of 275 pounds, the indoor cycle can be comfortably used by overweight people. The chain drive system ensures a relatively quiet workout while the handlebars can also be adjusted to it your requirements. The handlebars are made from rubber and lightly textured to deliver a firm grip even if you get sweaty. As far as the pedals are concerned, they are equipped with wide and firm straps that can wrap around different ankle sizes and keep your feet into place. This can come in particularly helpful for stand-up pedaling.
The Sunny Pro’s seat is certainly padded, though users have found that it could have benefited from additional padding, especially for lengthier workouts. However, this is the case with most spinning bikes, and if you really need that extra padding you can always acquire a gel seat cover. On a more positive note, the seat can be lowered or pulled up, depending on your height. This guarantees that you’ll be comfortable no matter your height, which might encourage you to train for longer periods of time.
Assembly and Parts
Some people did have issues with the assembly process, even if it lacked items such as a digital screen. While the setting up was quite straightforward, most users found this process to be quite time-consuming. In fact, most people claimed that they needed over an hour to put the bike together. Still, all the parts, accessories and tools that you will require for this step are included in the delivery box. An instructions manual is also included to help you find your way around the apparatus.
A few drawbacks have been reported about this model in spite of its high online rating. For example, several users thought that the seat could have benefited from additional padding. Most people found that they suffered from saddle soreness after just half an hour. However, this is fairly common with spinning bikes and was not a problem for athletes who trained alternating position. More experienced users also complained about the lack of computerized features such as a digital screen, which made it difficult for them to keep track of their progress over the long run. However, considering its great price, the Sunny Pro is still quite a recommended purchase.
In spite of these drawbacks, the Sunny SF-B901 Pro is an excellent option for beginners and intermediate users who want to benefit from an intensive aerobic training session. It is fairly easy to use, comes with an adequate level of comfort and is also quite easy to move around. While it may not have all the professional computerized features that come with more expensive machines such as the Sole SB700 and the Diamondback 510Ic, the Sunny Pro does get the job done and will help you lose quite a lot of weight in a short amount of time.
