The best feature about the True Indoor Cycling Bike is that this bike was built to last. Though the price tag is a little much without a discount, you will certainly be able to use this bike for a while. If you are a heavy user, we would recommend looking at a bigger price range because the Indoor Cycling might still be a little too inexpensive. But for the beginner or moderate user, the Indoor Cycling Bike should work just fine for a good number of years.
If you are someone who appreciates a good brand and a company that stands behind their products, then you will be able to understand why we rank the True Indoor Cycling Bike so high. With a solid build and great company, this bike is a pretty impressive model. But True is charging more for their name than actual bike features. Therefore, we have placed the True Indoor Cycling in our Second Place slot for our 2020 Best Buy Awards in the $700 to $999 dollar range.
I think we all have those friends that only buy name brands at the grocery store. They swear that the brand name is way better than the off-brand and do not mind the extra bucks- maybe you are that friend. Well, the True machines are the name brand machines of the exercise equipment world. True has been around much longer than the cheaper, heavily-marketed brands and they have proven to have better products and better service, relatively speaking. True’s reputation is a big part of why we feel confident in placing their bikes ahead of others. You may be looking a little sideways at the Indoor Cycling Bike because it is not as shiny and feature-packed as other bikes in this price range. But the kind of quality and company backing certainly does make up for the lack of screen and workout programs.
Even still, we do realize that True has overpriced the Indoor Cycling Bike just a tad. We will say, True usually prices higher so that their sellers can cut deals. But if you can’t find the Indoor Cycling Bike on sale, then it may not be the best option. Also, if you are a beginner or moderate user who enjoys the screen and helpful workouts that keep you focused, then you may not be willing to opt into a bike that does not offer these features. Another thing that we do not love about the Indoor Cycling Bike’s price tag is the lack of motor that goes with it. For a self-propelled bike, you would think True would start a little lower. But, as we said, they do use great quality parts, they love their reputation, and they are usually willing to negotiate.
As for the features we do like, we like that True included such a heavy flywheel. Just keep in mind that the Indoor Cycling Bike does not necessarily completely out-shadow other bikes in this price range with the heaviest flywheel. Other bikes in this price range may be motorized which means they do not need as heavy of a flywheel. And lastly, the warranty isn’t too bad. Sure, there are not as many years as another, but this goes back to the brand again. Would you rather have two great years of service or ten crappy, useless years?

This is the first year we have reviewed the Indoor Cycling Bike. We invite you to check out our other True and other bike reviews though to be sure you find the best machine for you.
The Indoor Cycling Bike is a simple case of where your value lies. If you are a moderate user who wants a bike that will last with a good company backing, then the Indoor Cycling Bike will more than likely be a great bike for you. But, if you are a heavier user or you prefer a few more features, then you may want to look elsewhere. We think our 2020 Second Place Best Buy bike for the $700 to $999 dollar range should perform well and offer a great value if you can get it on sale.
