Sunny Health & Fitness SF-B901 Pro Indoor Cycling Bike Review
The SF-B901 Pro Indoor Cycling Bike is both an affordable and practical indoor bike for anyone, beginner or advanced indoor bike enthusiast, looking to get into shape or simply improve their level of fitness. The SF-B901 Pro is a no-frills, basic indoor bike, perhaps overshadowed by fancier models of indoor cycles and Spinning bikes on the market boasting an array of computer features and little luxuries, but it is ideal for anyone on a budget who simply wants a reliable, sturdy bike to work out on from the comfort of their own home.
The SF-B901 is a lightweight model but solid and durable, and its 40lb flywheel is perhaps its best feature as it enhances the efficiency of any workout. Its adjustable seat, handlebars and level of resistance allow it to be customized to suit any rider, and its stylish silver and red design means it certainly looks the part.

What We Love About the SF-B901 Pro Indoor Cycle:
With the SF-B901, you’re getting a very solid indoor bike for around $300. If you’re looking for something that simply gets the job done, there’s little point in paying through the nose when the SF-B901 Pro offers an effective workout and a durable, easy-to-assemble frame at such a low price. It may not have the fancy electronic features of many other bikes, but if you can live without these added extras in favor of saving a pretty penny, it may be well-worth the sacrifice.
Secondly, we love the bike’s heavier-than-usual 40lb flywheel. The effectiveness of a workout is largely impacted by the weight of the flywheel, and a 40lb flywheel helps mimic a real feeling of road-bike momentum.
Finally, assembly of the bike is mere child’s play and, once set up, the frame is sturdy and durable, ideal for anyone looking for a long-term investment. This bike is in it for the long haul.
What Isn’t So Great:
Not a big surprise for the price but one thing to mention about the Sunny B901 Pro Indoor Cycle is its lack of computerized features. Although not by any means essential for a great workout, there are plenty of other indoor cycling bike models on the market that have these added luxuries that enable riders to fully customize their workout and track their progress, and this puts the SF-B901 at a bit of a disadvantage. That being said, if budget is your main concern, the workout the SF-B901 can provide is just the same as many of its rivals, and its lack of computer features may not prove such a hardship.
The Sunny SF-B901 Pro includes the lightly padded seat which, like most other indoor bikes it’s suffice to say, can prove somewhat uncomfortable, especially over the course of a long workout. That said this can be remedied easily enough with a gel cover. Or give the bike a few days and see if you don’t get used to the ride.
Final Word on the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-B901 Pro:
Sunny Health and Fitness is a solid, California-based company that has been distributing a quality line of fitness equipment for over a decade. Customer support seems to be a priority and their warranties cover a good amount of usage time.
If you’re seeking value for money and a bike that’s simple but able to provide a great workout, you can’t wrong with the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-B901 Pro Indoor Cycling Bike. Comparable in quality to much more expensive bikes, this bike is the epitome of uncomplicated design, from its initial assembly to its jump-on-and-get-cycling workouts, making it ideal for anyone looking for a basic bike on a budget.
