How long will the True ES900 Upright last?

The True ES900 Upright Bike is built to last and has a decent 122 lb. weight which is more than capable of holding up to a 350 lb. max user capacity due to its sturdy build. It comes with a very generous lifetime warranty on the frame, 10 years on parts, and 1 year on labor. Beginning to light users should get many years of workout performance from this indoor exercise cycle. It has a compact design with a smaller footprint of a 3.6’ frame and will fit into any home gym or workout space. Keep in mind routine maintenance will add life to any machine.

Brief Overview

The True ES900 Upright Bike won the Second Place slot for our 2020 Best Buy Awards and remains a strong contender to this day with its quality build and lifetime warranty. It is an impressive model but would need to be since it is not tailored towards those with smaller budgets and lacks a large touchscreen which is a great selling point on indoor fitness machines.

Overall Quality

The True ES900 Upright Bike has a rather simplistic console holding 8 built in workout programs and a small LCD screen that offers an orange light. These programs are designed to work with a patented heart rate technology that lets users reach a desired level then the software works at keeping that heartrate target during the rest of the session. The console offers Bluetooth capabilities allowing users to hook up devices though headphones are a necessity when using this feature. The handlebars on the ES900 have moisture resistant sleeves and offer varying grips for those taking lengthier rides while the cushioned saddle is interchangeable so users can add in their own comfortable seat before using. The ES900 Upright Bike comes with an Eddy Current Brake offering numerous levels of resistance and has a belt drive system for optimal performance in every workout.

This is the first year the Treadmill Doctor has reviewed the True ES900 Upright bike. We invite you to look at our many other bike reviews as well as our True reviews that range from bikes to ellipticals to treadmills.


The ES900 is a good option if you are looking for reliability, a great warranty, and not necessarily the best technology. As always you should consider what you want in a bike and how much you are willing to pay. Therefore, the True ES900 upright is the second-place winner for the 2021 Best Buy award for the $2000 to $2999 price point.
