Summary: The JTX Cyclo 6 exercise bike looks amazing and has a huge 22kg flywheel for the smoothest and most consistent resistance. Gym spec one of those marketing terms which comes up a lot – though I believe that the Cyclo 6 is pretty close. All the reviewers give it top four and five star ratings (the only 2 star was for a different model?). At the time of writing there is also a solid discount at amazon.co.uk – along with free UK delivery.

Many of the machines aimed at home users lack the robust design and peak performance. With the Cyclo 6 you don’t need to worry about that any longer. The flywheel is huge – 22 kg. This means even during the most intense workouts the machine will run smoothly. It is belt driven to make the machine quieter too, which is great for the home user. This is a mid-budget model, and is certainly a step up from the budget exercise bikes you’ll see.
This machine is heavy, and for many users this is a good thing! One of the most common negatives that comes up in the comments about other bikes is that they don’t last and are flimsy or have bad build quality. What you are getting with this model is the opposite, a really solid bike which certainly looks the part and is good for everything from a gentle cycle to some very intensive workouts.
I really like the 2 year parts and labour warranty, this includes all of the parts (no exclusions).
The display is compact, and will cycle between all of the standard measurements (time, speed, calories and distance). There are also preset routines, which can become as challenging or as gentle as you are ready for.
Resistance is often fairly weak on home machines. The Cyclo 6 offers infinite resistance through leather friction pads meaning you can push yourself to the max and there will still be more waiting. That 22kg flywheel should have enough resistance for even the most intensive of home exercise bike routines.
The quiet mechanism comes up a lot in the feedback, as well as those complementing the build quality. I am happy to see a five-star rating from someone who claims to be a road biking fan, as well as from someone who switched from gym spinning classes to home biking. As I mentioned in the introduction, the only negative (under 4 stars) comes from someone who was leaving feedback for a different JTX model.
