Update: This model is no longer available. You will find several alternatives which are ideal for home spinning. Here are my suggestions:
- Reebok ZR8 Exercise Bike (this one is a classic, a great looking mid-price model)
- DKN AM-E Exercise Bike (this one is a little cheaper, has very solid feedback from previous buyers)
- We R Sports Aerobic Training Cycle (looks great!)

Detailed Review of the Spinner Fit Spin Exercise Bike
The Fit Spin is a robust bike, perfect if you’ve you’re new to spinning or keen to push yourself harder and dramatically increase your fitness. With a sturdy black and grey low slung frame, the Fit Spin is easy to get on and off of and most importantly easy on the thighs, thanks to thick padded saddle.
The handlebars feel natural to hold and feature soft foam grips for a comfortable ride. What’s more, both the saddle and handlebars are easily adjustable to accommodate riders of all sizes. The flywheel is state-of-the-art, creating constant momentum for a non-impact workout and ensuring a fluid pedal stroke at all times.
Spinner make good bikes and have a great reputation in the industry. This stationary bike is perfectly priced for beginner or casual cyclists, however the lack of onboard computer and preset exercise programs will probably put off serious riders who need to be constantly challenged during their workout. The bike does come with a workout DVD to make up for it.
Feedback from customers has been great. Everyone complimented how smooth and quiet it is to ride and how easy the Fit Spin is to put together. No one seemed to complain about the lack of on board computer and the DVD got great reviews.
Overall this bike is finely tuned to give you a great cardio workout and an abs, core and leg tune up without subjecting you to the bumps and aches that a cheaper bike work. If you’re looking for a bike you can ‘get on and go’ with then the Fit Spin is the model for you. What it lacks in on board electronics, it makes up for with its solid construction.
