Diamondback Fitness 510Ic Indoor Cycle Trainer Review
Presented with the “Best Buy” award by Consumer magazine, the Diamondback Fitness 510Ic Indoor Cycle Trainer is a revolutionary, high tech indoor bike that rivals some of the top-of-the-line Spinner Fit Indoor Spin Bikes.
It comes equipped with an innovative state of the art computer electronic resistance system that not only challenges your fitness goals, but provides you with critical real time data during your workout including speed, distance traveled, watts, heart rate, cadence and elapsed time.
Built with a 32 pound flywheel, the chain-driven 510Ic will provide you the sensation of riding on the open road without leaving the comfort of your own home.
One of the most notable features of the 510Ic is found in its 14 automated workout routines that are designed to simulate almost any type of terrain. This, plus the very quiet chain drive help the 510Ic stand out from the competition.
Built with a heavy sturdy frame with an impressive maximum rider weight of 300 pounds, it can stand up against even the most enthusiastic rider.
The Diamondback Fitness 510Ic was built with rider comfort, innovation and durability in mind.

Shipping and Assembly:
Some customers have reported problems with shipping, that the box in some cases can be damaged upon arrival. We hope that this is an anomaly. The Diamondback 510lc is fairly heavy so assembly is fairly simple, but can be a challenge due to the sheer weight of the bike. Assembly time is approximately one hour with the included tools.
What We Love About the Diamondback Fitness 510Ic:
The Computer Console
The Diamondback 510Ic has one of the best workout monitors among indoor cycles. A bright, easy to read LCD screen that displays a variety of critical workout statistics including time, speed, distance, burned calories, heart rate and cadence (pedal rotations per minute.)
The Handlebar Heart Rate Monitor
A heart rate monitor is standard on most indoor cycles, however the Diamondback 510Ic boasts accurate heart rate monitors within the handlebars.
Automated Workout Routines
We love the 14 different workout programs available on the 510Ic. And for those who need to keep track of their heart rate, the 4 heart rate programs are awesome.
What Isn’t So Great:
Not too much to mention here, but some people feel it’s on the heavy side. Weighing in at 125 pounds fully assembled, it created some difficulty for a few users when they received their bike in assembling it. On the bright side, the weight signals the bike’s durability and operational stability. It’s a strong bike, and if properly cared for, the 510lc can last a lifetime.
Final Word on the Diamondback 510Ic Indoor Cycle:
The Diamondback 510Ic is an innovative, high tech indoor bike. The impressive features and benefits are designed for the rider’s comfort and convenience. If you’re looking for a bike that will help keep you motivated and reach your fitness goals, whether that is weight loss or training then this bike is a worthy investment. Watch out because you might enjoy this cycle so much at home that you no longer go to your Spinning classes, and accidentally save some money there.
