What We Love About the Marcy Club Revolution Indoor Cycle:

Cycling Motion

We love that the Marcy Club Revolution Indoor Cycle is belt driven. For a mid-$300 price tag, you’ll be hard pressed to find an indoor cycle that is anything but chain driven. The belt drive is great for maintenance purposes, but it also provides a very smooth, very realistic pedaling motion. Combine this with a heavy 40 lb flywheel and solid steel pedals and you get a motion that simulates a realistic outside, road experience. Again, for this price, this is one of the best riding experiences you will find.

Other Considerations:

Adjustability

The one thing that could be better with the Marcy Club Revolution Indoor Cycle is the adjustability. Marcy claims this bike fits a range of users from 5’2” to 6’3”. However, several shorter users have commented that the handlebars are a far reach and that they can’t get into a comfortable position no matter how close they move the seat toward the handlebars. Providing a fore/aft adjustment to the handlebars could possibly solve this, but in this price range, we doubt that you’ll find any bike with that option. So, if you’re a shorter user, it may be beneficial to give this bike a spin before making the purchase.

No Computer

The other thing we’re disappointed about with the Club Revolution Indoor Cycle is that there is no computer. Just because you’re dropping into the lower price ranges, doesn’t mean you should go without the ability to track your workout statistics. Performance measurements are key in knowing if you’re improving and for setting goals to work toward. There are plenty of options in this price range that provide a basic computer. Check out our reviews of the Sunny Health & Fitness Indoor Cycle Trainer (SF-B1203), the Exerpeutic LX7 Training Cycle or the Fitleader FS1 Upright Exercise Bike.

Final Word on the Marcy Club Revolution Indoor Cycle:

At the mid-$300 price, the Marcy Club Revolution Indoor Cycle is a good choice. The best thing is the belt drive which not only provides smooth and quiet cycling, but also cuts out the messy maintenance that you need to do with a chain drive. A couple of complaints we have deal with the lack of computer and whether this bike is best for shorter users. If those issues don’t affect you, then the Marcy Club Revolution Indoor Cycle should be an easy decision for you.
