The Buzz

UPDATE:  The ProForm 590 SPX has been discontinued and is no longer being sold.  You can check out the latest exercise bike lineup at the official ProForm site to compare the new models.

The ProForm 590 SPX Indoor Cycle combines a Belt-Drive System with Felt-Resistance Tension adjustments for a smooth operation. It has a heavy 48.5-pound flywheel and an innovative braking system for quick starts and stops.

This 112-lb bike offers a fully adjustable saddle (fore/aft, up/down), as well adjustable non-slip handlebars (fore/aft, up/down), and pedals with toe straps to secure your feet. It is compatible with a Polar® wireless chest strap (not included) for heart rate monitoring during the workout, plus a handy water bottle holder and transport wheels.

Reviews on the ProForm 590 SPX note that it has a durable commercial steel frame and is protected by a 5-year frame warranty and 1-year parts and labor warranty. The seat is not all that comfortable, but it is a well-designed and attractive cycling bike that will give you hours of tough workouts.

Our Take

The ProForm 590 SPX Indoor Bike is listed at $999 at the ProForm website but we’ve seen it around the web for as low as $499 to $599! At that price, it makes a lot of sense.

This belt-drive model is an upgrade on the cheaper chain-drive 490 SPX, but other than that, the frame and components are exactly the same. You will find that belt-drive bikes are very quiet and are virtually maintenance-free, while chain bikes are noisy, and will require frequent oiling on the chain.

You will pay a little more for a belt-drive bike, but it is worth it. If you don’t pay more than $599 for the ProForm 590 SPX Indoor Cycle, then you’ve got yourself a good deal.
