Let’s Get Started:
Regardless if you prefer a road bike or an indoor bike, comfort is extremely important. The SB900 indoor cycle provides users the option of using toeclip or clipless (SPD) pedals. The seat is fully adjustable vertically and horizontally and the handlebars can also be adjusted in both directions. The SOLE SB900’s heavy duty 48 lb chrome plated flywheel and eddy current magnetic resistance system design will ensure a quiet and smooth ride during your most intense workouts.
The integrated console displays workout data like RPM, time, Kcal, distance and speed. Additionally, it is compatible with a wireless heart rate chest strap to ensure users are getting those most intense workouts in their target heart rate training zone.
The Sole SB900 takes user to the next level of exercising and accommodates both the indoor and outdoor cyclists. Understanding the needs of both, the SB900 combines them together to deliver a comfortable, affordable bike for the user to have the dual experience in the comfort of their own home.

Shipping and Assembly:
Shipping costs will vary for the SB900 indoor cycle depending on where you purchase from and what type of delivery you prefer. However, some retailers, such as Amazon.com, will provide free shipping.
Some assembly is needed with the Sole SB900. Sole® Fitness provides all of the tools necessary to assemble the bike along with a fully illustrated manual. The assembly is straightforward and should take between 30 minutes and an hour. The hardest thing about the assembly is manipulating the large and somewhat heavy components.
What We Love About the SB900:
Sole Fitness is a name synonymous with quality exercise equipment and the SB900 is a fine example. This cycle has a sturdy structure with its heavy steel tubing frame and an equally heavy 48 lb flywheel. These components ensure a stable and smooth ride. The SB900 also utilizes the eddy current magnetic resistance system, which also ensures a smooth transition between intensity. These are the design features that ensure you are getting a quality bike. A good commercial-grade bike to compare the SB900 to is the Spinner NXT Spin Bike.
Sole Fitness provides a superior warranty of the SB900 indoor bike. The SB900 has a lifetime frame warranty, which is about unheard of at any price range. They obviously back their quality product and have no concerns for the need to replace structural components. The 3 yr electronics and parts warranties is also very good and provides you with the assurance that you can push this cycle to the limits during your most intense workouts.
Programmed workouts on exercise equipment provide great motivation to extend your workouts and to get you to keep coming back. Unfortunately, the SB900 doesn’t have any programs. The console on the SB900 provides some general workout statistics like RPM, distance, speed time and heart rate. It’s not necessary, but it would be a bonus if Sole Fitness provided a couple workout programs or even an optional computer upgrade.
Final Word on the Sole SB900 Indoor Bike:
The Sole SB900 retails around $1,500, but can be found on the Internet for under $1,000. That’s a great price considering this is a cycle from a leading company in the fitness industry. Sole® Fitness is known for producing quality fitness equipment and the SB900 is a great example of this from its strong, durable light commercial, steel tubing frame to its eddy current magnetic resistance system. Highly recommended.
