How long will the LifeFitness C3 Upright last?

Life Fitness seems to have a few good features built into this bike. Life Fitness does back up their product with a good warranty. We believe with proper maintenance and care this bike will hold up well. For the price of this bike, we would suggest a moderate usage rider.

Brief Overview

The Life Fitness C3 Upright bike has many good attributes, but it has just as many parts that could have been improved. The C3 bike is also in the top price range. Therefore, we put the Life Fitness C3 Upright in our third-place 2021 best buy for the $1500 to $1999 price category.

Overall Quality

The Life Fitness C3 Upright bike comes with some great features, but just as many features that could have been a lot better, especially for the price.

Life Fitness built this bike with a belt drive system for durability. They also put an average flywheel on this bike, which weighs 22 pounds. Another Great Feature is that this bike comes with fourteen fitness programs, where others in its class are unclear on how many programs come with their bikes. The best feature that comes with this bike is the warranty which is Lifetime on the frame, three years on the parts, and one year for the labor.

There are some other features that we believe Life Fitness could have done better, though. First is the 4x6 screen is small for this price class and the money one would pay for this bike. It would have been nice if Life Fitness had put on caged pedals instead of just a strap because they add more security to the rider of this bike. Compared to others in this price point, the levels of resistance are low. For the price, you can get a better-priced bike with more levels of resistance.
