The Buzz

The Sole SB700 spin bike features a 2.0 mm oval steel tubing frame, and a heavy 48-lb chrome-plated flywheel and Kevlar brake system for smooth, consistent performance. It includes pedal straps to keep your feet attached even during the most strenuous workouts, and the seat and handlebars move up and down, as well as fore and aft, for the best user fit.

Sole SB700 Exercise Bike Console

The turn knob at the base of the handlebars allows you to dial through 16 levels of resistance. The Sole SB700 mimics every feature of the more advanced bikes used in health club Spinner classes, but also adds Sole’s attractive display console (similar to the ones used on their ellipticals and treadmills) so that you have a large display to track workout stats.

The main difference between the SB700 and the uplevel SB900 is the fact that the latter has eddy current brakes which are better and quieter, and either toeclip or clipless (SPD) pedals.

With a strong 3-year warranty on all parts and electronics, and 1-year for in-home repairs, the SB700 spin bike is backed by Sole’s strong warranty and customer service program.

You won’t find many reviews on this new model yet, but you should expect it to be a quality exercise bike equal to the type of equipment Sole produces in treadmills and ellipticals.

Our Take on the SB700 Indoor Bike

The Sole SB700 spin bike has an MSRP of $1,299 and is offered by Sole directly for around $799 with shipping included. While it is a good choice for a quality home exercise bike, you should compare all the brands and models of leading spinners between $599 and $999.

This is a very competitive price range, so be sure to review the Diamondback 910ic priced from $799 to $999, as well as some good models from Bladez, Fitnex, and MultiSports priced at around $599.
