L Now has earned some degree of reputation with some good exercise bikes. I wanted to write about the L now spin bike reviews. So, found me some leisure time. As a result, I decided to help out all you guys looking for the perfect exercise bikes.
Of course, L now has manufactured a lot of feature and comfort-based bikes. But, one bike in particular really dazzled me. And after spending some time researching, I got even more interested in the bike.
Which one is it? It is the L Now LD-582.
Now, I am gonna try to cover all the tiny bits of details and features of this bike. And I assure you that you will not need to know anything more about the bike after reading this review.
So, let’s get started, shall we?
The bike has a reasonable price, I would say, for a spin exercise bike. Especially because of the lots of features this one offers. I am sure anyone would be satisfied after seeing the performance of the bike. Besides, it is the perfect option for those who cannot afford the L Now LD-577.
You can get the bike in either all black or all white. That’s two colors for you to choose from. What got my attention is the heavy flywheel. Seriously, that flywheel could be the only reason to get this bike.
It has a 3.4 inches screen. As a result, the reading is quite clear even though I would expect a larger screen for the price they are selling. Also, the console is able to track different key functions which will certainly help in keeping you motivated.
You can imagine that the bike is heavy-duty and highly durable. As advertised, it supports user weight up to 300 pounds. So, the construction job is pretty well done.
I gotta tell you that I loved the large tablet/smartphone/book holder on the front of the bike. Now, it is easier to keep entertained watching tablets/phones while on the bike pedaling. Moreover, if you are a reader then place your book on the holder and exercise your mind too.
Solid crank system, smooth resistance, and so many other cool features up for grabs.
Interested? Then keep on reading to learn everything about the bike.
Any proper exercise bike comes with a handy console. This bike has a nice console that works well too. Of course, there’s no need to educate you about the console of an exercise bike. So, I am not gonna get into that. Instead, I will just inform you about this bike’s console and its features.
You get a 3.4 inches screen which, I for one was not satisfied with. I like having a larger screen especially when the bike is pricy. But, the screen’s size is not that important if it has the right features. Does this bike have the right features?
You be the judge! You can track speed, time, distance, ODO, RPM, and calories burnt. That’s a pretty useful list of functions to track your progress and reach your fitness goals.
Furthermore, tracking of the heart rate is also possible. This is done because of the pulse sensors integrated on the handlebars around the console. Keeping track of the heart rate zone is always an advantage in any exercise bike. So, make the most of it.
There are three different buttons on the bike. Set, reset, and the mode button. I don’t wanna sound like I am interacting with a baby. There’s no need to explain what these buttons are gonna do, right? Good J
Flywheel & Resistance
I am sure you are well aware that resistance and flywheel go hand in hand. The resistance of the bike is pretty much controlled by the flywheel. In other words, a bike’s resistance depends on the flywheel.
Now, this L Now spin bike has certainly hit the bull’s eye with its flywheel. I mean you cannot expect a better flywheel in this price range. The bike is equipped with a heavy 35 pounds flywheel. You really can make your decision right now! Seriously!
I would go home with a 35 pounds flywheel on any day of the week. Remember that the weight of the flywheel has a say on the resistance you get. Also, a heavier flywheel tends to provide a smoother resistance.
So, how is the resistance on this bike? Firstly, there are no levels of resistance like on many other exercise bikes you may have observed. Instead, this bike offers a resistance from easy, medium and high. You simply rotate the adjusting knob and the resistance will increase/decrease.
It provides a good intensity as you rotate to higher resistances.
Almost forgot to mention that the flywheel is bidirectional. So, you can get smooth resistance from pedaling backwards too. And when you want to stop speedy pedaling then there’s the push stop feature on the resistance knob.
Seat & Handlebars
Now, don’t expect to get a recumbent bike’s comfort on this spin bike. But, I will tell you that the seat is fine. It is spin bike people -_-
The seat is well padded with foam. And I can use all the padding I can get. To be honest, this is the one thing about spin or upright exercise bikes I don’t fully enjoy. Their seat is disappointing much of the time. The issue on this bike for me is that the seat is not wide enough.
But, hope is not out. The seat is adjustable which is great for any exercise bike. You can easily adjust the seat to the right height. The adjustable feature along with the foam-pad makes the seat comfortable enough to carry out your exercise sessions. But, I do not find it a good seat for exercising long hours.
Moreover, it is easy to adjust the seat to the handlebar’s height and make adjustments so that the pedal is never too close nor too far.
Speaking of handlebars… I liked that they are adjustable too. In addition, the pulse sensors provide the all-important tracking of heart rate. Also, the handlebars are pretty stable. So, you can have a safer workout session no doubt.
Spin bikes do offer a higher intensity than any recumbent bike. Pedaling and exercising the lower part of the body is always a great choice. But, if there’s an issue with the pedals then the whole exercise bike is just a waste.
I like extra-wide pedals with straps on. And guess what this bike offers?
So, keep your feet secured on the pedals with the straps on and pedal to your fitness goals.
