Although L NOW is not on top of the brands list in manufacturing the home gym spinning bikes, but it has introduced several excellent weight loss spin bikes in the market. And these spin bikes have received quite a good feedback.
L NOW D600 Indoor Cycling Bike has similar features and specifications as LD-506 with a slightly different frame construction and flexible handlebars. The assembled dimensions of D600 are 41” length, 21” width and 46” height and covers this much space on floor. It is recommended to leave out at least two feet of space all around the cycling bike to avoid any damage.
The frame of D600 Cycling Bike is constructed with steel tubing making sure that it can handle weight up to 400 lbs of the user. It has a beautiful design featuring a sturdy frame construction with a curved main and base connection bar. D600 also has several plastics parts such; adjustment knobs, console, cover of brake pad, base tube caps, and belt guard. The frame is double-coated with corrosion resistant paint making it scratch free and the seat and handlebars feature a chrome finish, that is also corrosion resistant.
D600 Indoor Cycling Bike has adjustable stabilizers with large pads on the base tubes to prevent the bike from moving on the floor and it can be placed on any type of floor.
The assembled weight of D600 is 77 lbs which is good enough for the stability. The spin bikes mostly available in the market does not have a folding feature, but D600 has two transport wheels built on the front base of it which helps in relocating the bike once the user is done doing the workout.
The drive system of D600 Indoor Cycling Bike is belt-driven, as most of the L NOW spin bikes. This drive system comes with two advantages, one that it is terribly quite and second it does not need periodic lubrication. It has a heavy-duty-v-belt, great with resistant to stretching designed with such technicality that it lasts many years of daily use.
The flywheel of D600 weighs only 22 lbs which is considerably lighter from the other models of spin bikes. However, it is perimeter-weighted which gives a great momentum and a smooth pedaling motion. Another aspect to note here is that it is two-way flywheel that it can also pedal in reverse.
The construction of frame is excellent as well as the construction of crankset with solid steel arms. It can handle weight up to 400 lbs easily, with the user pedaling in standing position.
The pedals have only tow cages with straps and no SPD clips for spin shoes. The material used to built them is durable metallic alloy which can last for years use. In case the user want SPD pedals for this spin bike, there is an option available to replace the cage pedals.
This calorie burning and stamina building D600 spin bike has a fitness meter built on the handlebars. The fitness meter offers a lot such as; it can keep the track of distance, speed, calories, time as well as the pulse, if the user keep the hands on the handlebars. The handlebars have EKG sensors to have the control over the pulse rate. It also features an odometer which keeps the track of how much miles the user have walked or run. It also allows the user to show all the values at a time.
The meter is powered by battery. It starts if the user press the button or start to pedal. It can go to sleep mode upon several minutes of inactivity to save the battery life.
Seat and Handlebars
L NOW D600 has a comfortable seat than many of other L NOW spin bikes. The saddle is a little wider than average spin bike seat. It accommodates a good layer of padding which makes super soft and also prevents the over-heating. For the cushioning, D600 has two springs under the seat which makes it a little bouncy providing the user a great workout.
Another aspect of the seat is that it is 4-way adjustable. It got standard mechanism to its bar. In case the user want to replace it with a high quality seat, it only needs to be unbolted and voila! The user can change it.
The handlebars are 2-way adjustable which is more comfortable and has a multi-grip design offering a wide range of workout postures than other models of L NOW. It also has the EKG sensors so the fitness meter is able to keep the track of the pulse.
L NOW D600 offers a standard friction system consisting of a felt pad which is connected to an adjustment knob on the main tube of the frame. If the knob is tighten, the resistance pad will also tighten onto the flywheel and generating more drag and making a more consistent workout.
There are no levels available on the knob for the desired resistant workout. It also works as an emergency brake. The user can press it down to stop the spinning of the flywheel, so it is mostly recommended to use when it is needed to pedal the flywheel in the opposite direction.
