ProForm 300 SPX upright bike review

The ProForm 300 SPX indoor cycle trainer would best be described as a medium tier piece of kit for home gym users. It has a traditional upright design with adjustable features to ensure consumers are comfortable while peddling. This model is coming off the back of the 290, which was well received by the majority of people who went out and bought it, so naturally this upright bike has quite a lot to live up to. But does it?

Well customers around the web describe it as a good purchase for users who are not looking to empty the bank in order to get a decent model. Others mention how easy it is to assemble. You can preview some common customer feedback on the link below.

While some of you have got a budget of $500 to splash on exercise machines, we perhaps more than most, understand how difficult it is to set up a home gym without breaking the bank. This, along with the Weslo Pursuit R 3.8, and the Sole Fitness SB700 are fine examples of affordable bikes.

is a perfect example of cardio equipment that does just what you need for a respectable price. Burn away those excess calories and get in shape for the beach months thanks to some of the handy features it is equipped with below.

  • Upright style – The traditional upright design is suitable for almost any kind of cycle cardio training including high intensity sessions.
  • Resistance levels can be easily changed to varying difficulty levels with the simple turn of a knob.
  • Adjustable design features – As always I like to highlight the fact that comfort while exercising can limit the chances of you picking up an injury as well as making it more enjoyable. The seat can be adjusted to fit your own requirements, the pedals come with a toe cage which do a good job in keeping your feet on the pedals at all times. There is nothing worse than being in the middle of an intensive workout session and your feet slipping off.
  • It includes a water bottle holder, usually a given for most bikes these days, however it is useful to know you don’t need to break up your workout midway through to get water.
  • A fairly sturdy and durable design which allows a overall user weight capacity of 250 lbs. If, by any chance the steel frame does break, you are covered with 5 years frame warranty.
  • Non slip handlebars keep you focusing on the exercise at hand and not when you need to re adjust your arms. These handlebars are also fully adjustable, so that you, the user can ride in the position you feel most comfortable.
  • It comes with built in transport wheels, allowing you to easily move it around to your preferred room or storage cupboard. This takes away a frequently complained about element of exercise equipment, the heavy lifting. Not only does it remove the majority of the lifting from the equation, but it will also help in preventing you from picking up a unnecessary back injury.
  • It includes a large 44 lbs flywheel for a very steady, smooth and consistent workout.
  • To give you an idea about the space this exercise bike will take up, it’s dimensions are: 44.1 inches by 34.7 inches by 9.1 inches and it weighs just 101 pounds. Quite surprising considering the steel frame design and amount of adjustable features associated within the design.

What consumers are saying

Amazon – User feedback on here gives the bike a very average vibe. There are plenty of positive comments mixed with several negative. Some people really appreciate the simplicity and speed of assembly, while others complain about the saddle being uncomfortable. However, this can be overcome by replacing it with a new custom saddle, perhaps shop online for options that are well padded and contoured. Both will go a long way in combating this problem.


Make no mistake, the 300 SPX, is a great piece of equipment which gives users a low budget solution to undertake their cardio exercise activities. It may not be the most high tech or feature rich bike on the market, but it does include some of the most important things that every indoor cycle trainer should include: reliability, durability and a brilliant workout that will really help burn off those calories.
