BodyCraft SPX indoor cycle trainer review

The BodyCraft SPX is not a upright bike to be overlooked. Heavily favored by consumers that have bought it, this cardio machine certainly has all the tech and training settings needed to get more from your training.

It is equipped with a heavy forty six pound flywheel and a strong, durable frame that can hold a good amount of weight. It is reasonably compact and includes certain details that go above and beyond several of it’s main competitors.

Users with a medium budget may find this to be the best purchase they have made for their gym.

Features and specifications

With a excellent range of training features, this is a spinning bike with a higher level of quality than your average model. We have listed out the specs below and try to understand the inner workings so that you can make an informed and smart buying decision.

The belt on this drive system is a Hutchinson 5PK V-Ribbed. It’s described by the manufacturer as automotive quality which gives a slight indication about the durability of some of the internal features. What’s more it won’t require oiling like chain drive competitors. Adding this alongside it’s heavy 46 pound flywheel, and you have the formula for a heavy duty exercise bike.

The weight of the flywheel is slightly more heavy than the Best Fitness BFSB5 and the CPS 3000 from Stamina. It allows it to have the smooth and stable peddling sensation many users look for. Not only will this go easy on your joints and muscles, but a consistent and stable ride can work wonders in preventing injuries.

The framework is steel and can hold user weights of up to 300 pounds. As you can see and many consumers will attest to, it comes with a solid foundation that can take most of what you throw at it. This is great news for those of you who like to cycle intensively. Even if your household or gyms have multiple users, it’s designed to withstand multiple users and long periods of use.

The peddles have toe straps attached to hold the riders feet in place which can stop accidents from occurring. And judging by the speeds the average person training will be going at, it’s going to help reduce the chances of you picking up an unnecessary injury.

When we look at the seating specs, we can see it’s anatomically correct, well padded and easy to position to a place where the user will feel comfortable. What’s more it is micro adjustable, so slight tweaks can help people position themselves at the perfect distance between the saddle and the peddles.

The type of break resistance the SPX runs on is friction which is one of the smoothest types an ideal for performance based riding. It it very easy to adjust the difficulty levels using a knob attached to the bike.

Assembly shouldn’t be too difficult for a relatively compact indoor cycle trainer. Additionally with dimensions of 24  inches by 47 inches by 43 inches, it is going to fit quite easily into your average sized gym with plenty of space to spare.

Looking at the warranty included for home users, we can see BodyCraft are offering lifetime warranty on the frame, five years on parts, and ninety days on wear and tear parts. It is always nice to know if you are spending a reasonable sum of money on new exercise equipment, you will be well protected.


For medium budget users, the SPX indoor cycle has a great deal of options available regardless of their personal fitness levels. There is no doubt in my mind that beginners through to experts are going to be able to find plenty of benefits from using this. Results will come down to how good your training and diet regime is, but it certainly has the built, training functionality and design to get the job done.
