The UREVO URSB002 is an indoor cycling bike designed to support any spin workout. It features a triangular frame made of steel tubing. All the steel bars in its construction are oval for improved sturdiness. Also, the base bars are v-shaped for extra stability.
All the steel tubes in the bike’s construction are coated with a corrosion-resistant paint finish. The color used is black, this being the only color available for this bike, at least for the moment. The side covers of the flywheel and the drivetrain cover are made from a tough ABS plastic material. They are also black with an orange border for an extra aesthetic touch.
The bike is not super large compared with other fitness machines but does have a slightly larger footprint than other spin bikes. It is approx. 45.7″ (116 cm) long, and 21.7″ (55 cm) wide. It is also recommended to allow at least 24″ (61 cm) of clearance all around it for ease of access and safe usage.
The bike is not super heavy but does weigh over 75 lbs (34 kg). This being said, you may need a box trolley for moving it while it’s still packaged. However, once it is assembled, it can easily be moved as its front base stabilizer features a set of transport wheels. Also, both base stabilizers have adjustable levelers with rubber pads.
Seat and handlebars
The UREVO URSB002 indoor cycling bike includes a slim race-type saddle. It is approx. 11″ (28 cm) long, and 6″ (15 cm) wide. It integrates a thick layer of foam cushioning, though, for improved comfort. It also has a median groove for superior breathability.
The saddle features a standard collar-type attachment system. Therefore, you can also change its angle slightly, if needed. Plus, it’s easy to remove and you can find other compatible saddles in basically any bike shop.
The bike’s seat is four-way adjustable (up, down, front, back). Its upright post offers an adjustment span of approx. 7.5″ (19 cm). The minimum pedal-seat distance is 30.5″ (77.4 cm) while the maximum is 38″ (96.5 cm). This being said, the bike can accommodate users between 5’0″ and 6’5″ (153 – 196 cm) with no problem. It is also rated for a maximum user weight limit of 265 lbs (120 kg).
This UREVO indoor cycling bike is equipped with a multi-grip handlebar. It features a set of drop-down grips, and also offers the possibility to adopt a climbing grip, an aero grip, a cruising grip, and a close grip. It is completely covered by a layer of PVC foam for improved contact. It also integrates pulse sensors.
The handlebar is only two-way adjustable (up, down). However, it adjusts diagonally, so the higher it is, the longer the distance between it and the seat will be. Its adjustment span is approx. 2.5″ (6.3 cm), while its maximum height is 47.5″ (120 cm).
The UREVO URSB002 exercise bike features a manual magnetic resistance system. Therefore, you don’t need to connect it to a power source. However, the bike cannot adjust the resistance automatically and the included fitness monitor does not have pre-set programs.
The resistance system consists of a magnetic brake attached to the frame above the flywheel, concealed by a top guard, and connected to the tension knob on top of the bike’s frame. When you turn the knob clockwise, the magnets move closer to the flywheel which increases the intensity of the created magnetic field. This leads to an increased pedaling load. Conversely, if you turn the knob to the left, the magnets move away from the flywheel, and this way you can reduce the workout load.
This magnetic brake system comes with two main advantages. One, the magnets do not touch the flywheel, so the brake pad won’t need lubrication or replacement. Two, due to the lack of contact between the brake pad and the flywheel, the pedaling motion is very smooth and quiet.
The bike does not have pre-set tension levels. You can simply turn the knob left or right until you get the desired pedaling difficulty. The tension knob also has the function of an emergency brake. You can press it down to instantly stop the flywheel from spinning.
The UREVO URSB002 indoor cycle is equipped with a belt drive system. It integrates a poly-v belt, highly resistant to abrasion and stretching. As opposed to a chain drive, the belt drive system comes with several advantages. First of all, it generates less vibration so the bike delivers a very smooth and quiet pedaling motion. And second of all, it does not require lubrication.
The bike’s flywheel weighs 35 lbs (15.8 kg) which is not bad for a home-use spin bike. It’s a bit lighter, though, than for most commercial models which usually have 40 lbs or heavier flywheels. It is perimeter-weighted for superior inertia and for a more consistent momentum.
The flywheel is bi-directional; in other words, you can pedal in reverse on this bike. But since its drive system is simpler than the one of a road bike, you cannot coast on it. Also, when you backpedal, the resistance remains constant, depending on the position of the magnetic brake.
The bike is equipped with a heavy-duty, 3-piece crankset featuring oval arms similar to road bikes. The pedals are made of aluminum alloy so they should withstand spin workouts and stand on them with no problem. They do not have SPD clips for spin shoes, but they do have adjustable toe cages.
The UREVO URSB002 stationary bike comes with a fitness monitor that offers quite a few extra features over a basic one. First of all, it has an LCD display divided into 6 sub-sections in order to show multiple workout metrics at once. It tracks time, speed, distance, RPM, calories, and pulse. Distance is shown in miles, speed is shown in MPH. The pulse reading function is grip only.
The monitor unit does not have pre-set programs but does offer the possibility to set workout goals. If, for example, you set a 5-mile goal for distance, the monitor will count down from the selected 5-mile distance to zero, notifying you when you complete it.
The monitor unit also has Bluetooth connectivity and is compatible with the Zwift app. It comes with a QR code which you can scan with your phone to install it. The app offers extra workout metrics, a cycling game that allows you to compete with others, and the possibility to track your progress online.
The fitness monitor is pretty easy to use. It has four buttons. These are Reset, Up, Mode, Down. The Reset button clears all the values on the monitor to zero and also activates the Bluetooth connection if pressed for more than two seconds. The Up/Down arrows allow you to increase or decrease values for workout goals. And finally, the Mode button covers the selection function.
The unit is battery-powered and the batteries are included. It is also equipped with a small shelf that can be used as a tablet or phone holder.
Assembly and Maintenance
The main body of the bike comes pre-assembled. You only need to attach the two base bars, the seat, the handlebars, the pedals, and the fitness monitor. This shouldn’t take more than one hour. The manual provides clear assembly instructions and all the necessary tools are included.
For maintenance, it is recommended to keep the bike clean and wipe the sweat that may drop on the frame at the end of the workout. The belt drive and the brake do not need any lubrication.
