What We Love About the Sunny Health and Fitness 6100 Sprinter Cycle
Super Stability During Sprinting Workouts
Some home exercise bikes wobble at higher speeds and may feel too unstable to really stand up and go all out. This is a solid machine with quite a bit of weight to it. Foot levelers that are placed along the front make this bike even more stable. You can stand up and pedal as hard as you want to without wobbling.
Dual Sided Pedals
Whether you prefer to use cycling cleats or regular gym shoes, you have the option with these dual sided pedals. Use the click in cleats on one side and you’ll feel like you’re taking a spinning class. Slip your foot in the adjustable straps on the other side for ease of use and convenience.
Adjustable Resistance and Quiet Operation
The Sunny Health and Fitness 6100 Sprinter Cycle has a 37-lb flywheel which gives a good range of resistance for all levels of fitness. Rear drive magnetic belt gives you the power without the noise. You can concentrate on music, television or just the sound of your breathing without being distracted by an overly loud machine.
What Isn’t so Great
Changing the Monitor Batteries is a Nightmare
Once the bike is entirely put together and you’ve used it for a while, you will notice that it is time to change the monitor batteries. In order to get to the back of the monitor itself, you have to unscrew and remove the tablet mount. After that you have to unscrew part of the monitor to access the battery panel, change the batteries and then put everything back together.
Some May Develop a Noise After a While
The Asuna 6100 Sprinter Cycle was designed to be quiet and for the most part it meets that goal. However, some bikes have reportedly started developing a variety of noises after they have been in use for a while. The noises vary from a low-pitched hum to a high-pitched whine and may become louder with time.
How the Sunny Health and Fitness Asuna 6100 Sprinter Cycle Compares to the Asuna Minotaur
Both the Asuna Sprinter Cycle and the Asuna Minotaur have the magnetic belt, rear drive. Both are similar in size with the Minotaur just a little smaller overall. The Minotaur also has a smaller min/max inseam. The flywheel on the Sprinter is 37 lb while the Minotaur’s is 33 lb. The Sprinter can handle a max user weight of 350 lb while the Minotaur can only handle 330 lb. Both are solid bikes in the upper price range.
Final Word on the Sunny Health and Fitness Asuna 6100 Sprinter Cycle
Made to be similar to a commercial spinning bike, this Sprinter is not only solidly built but stable during all types of workouts. Adjustable seat and handlebars allow you adjust to the right height for proper form. The heart rate chest strap lets you monitor your intensity and the monitor’s other functions allows you to set goals, so you can track and crush them.
It’s great to have the option of two different pedals with this Sprinter, especially for trainees who like a spinning workout without having to go to a gym.
