The Lifespan S2 indoor cycling bike allows you to ride in the proper spin position and has the nearly same feel you find on a health club spin bike. All you need to do is get a spinning DVD for motivation and instruction, and you can have you own spin class at home!
The Lifespan S2 indoor cycling bike is patterned after a spin bike, so while it has a minimalist design, there is no electronic console for workout feedback. It has a micro-adjustable resistance knob that controls the tension, and a push brake lever to stop the flywheel.
The bike features:
One advantages of the Lifespan S2 indoor cycling bike is the seat post allows for adjustments both vertically and horizontally, an important feature if you want a proper fit in a spin bike. The PVC-dipped handlebars are multi-position so you can feel comfortable pedaling standing up, sitting up, or in a racer stance.
A 40-lb balanced flywheel and a Poly-V drive belt provide great resistance, and the heavy-gauge steel frame offers stability in a very solid ride. The S2 features the same pedals made of alloy with sealed bearings as the S4 model.
The reviews of the Lifespan S2 exercise bike have been overwhelmingly positive. The indoor cycle is very quick and easy to assemble out of the box since it arrives almost 90% assembled. The nearly 100-lb frame is rock solid at any riding position, and the seat and pedals are standard mounts so you can switch them out for any style that you prefer.
The Lifespan S2 indoor bike usually sells for $599, but we have seen it on sale for $499. At that price, it is a no-brainer. If you are an avid spinner, you will want to change out the pedals and seat for better quality, but that is the only downside to the bike.
You won’t be able to find a 40-lb flywheel + belt drive system for under $500 that rivals the S2. For $599, it rates a Good Buy among the top 5 bikes at that level, but at $499, the Lifespan S2 indoor cycling bike rates a Best Buy.
