Today we will be taking a look at the MYX Fitness Bike. We gave it 4.7 out of 5 stars because of its affordable price tag and ability to accommodate users of all sizes and levels.
The MYX Fitness bike is great for beginners, advanced athletes, and larger/taller riders that are looking for some extra positive motivation and direction with instructor-led classes. The interface is user-friendly and provides a non-intimidating environment that is pleasing to workout with. Rather than an intense studio environment with flashing lights, the MYX app provides a zen-like feel with knowledgeable instructors that use positive psychology to motivate you along your ride.
The height capacity of 6’8” and a weight capacity of 350 lbs makes this bike uniquely suitable for taller and larger riders.
This bike is powered by a friction-resistant flywheel (as opposed to the silent magnetic flywheel that is found on other models). That means that two felt pads squeeze against the flywheel to add resistance, rather than a magnetic. The upside is that the bike becomes more affordable, but the downside is that is it not as silent or accurate as magnetic flywheels.
The workouts are based on heart-rate training, rather than setting your bike at specific resistance levels, so that is something to consider when deciding if this bike is for you.
We love the high-tech features, build quality, and affordability of the MYX Fitness bike and hope our review helps you decide if it’s a good fit.
