Sunny SF-B1714 comes with a heavy-duty steel frame that can handle the user’s weight up to 300 lbs easily. The assembled weight of this spin bike is 136 lbs that makes it heavy itself.
So there’s no issue in the stability of the bike and will also not move or wobble even when the intense workout is being done on the bike by the user.
It also has stabilizers built on the bases on both the side to keep it leveled on the floor and stop it from moving.
The SF-B1714 spin bike frame is not foldable, though there are silicone transport wheels are available which can help the user in relocating the bike.
It is recommended to place a mat under the bike as the assembled weight and user’s weight makes heavy, so it may cause damage to the floor while working out.
The assembled dimensions of SF-B1714 Pro Indoor are 48.5” length, 24” width and 53.5” height, which is not exactly a large spin bike but it is suggested to leave two feet of space all around it to avoid any damages.
The resistance system offers a magnetic resistance system making it more durable. The brake has a magnetic pad attached to the turn-knob to the mainframe of the bike.
By turning the knob, it helps in increasing and decreasing the tension regarding the position relating to the flywheel.
The brake works manually and it turns left and right and there are no levels available. The user has to turn the knob until the desired training requirements are conformed.
As the resistance system is magnetic, it does not make any noise, don’t wear out early.
Seat and Handlebars
Sunny SF-B1714 has the most comfortable seat. It has a thickness that consists of a plush layer and a longitudinal groove which provides a good blood flow.
The seat is 4-way adjustable and its approximate height goes to 8”, while its horizontal slide goes back and forth as well.
The handlebars are also 4-way adjustable. These are designed for multiple grips with a united aero bar in the middle.
This Pro Indoor Bike can accommodate a user with a height from 5’0” to 6’5” easily.
Drive System and Elements
The most important part of this spin bike is its flywheel which is quite heavy and weighs 44 lbs.
It is slightly different compared to other products by Sunny in terms of construction, designed for intense workouts.
It offers smooth and consistent momentum, making it not a good choice for users who have a problem with knees or other disabilities.
Another feature of the flywheel is that it is bi-directional. The user can pedal in reverse motion as well.
Unlike other bikes who features a sophisticated drive system, SF-B1714 pedals continue on moving as long as the flywheel is spinning.
Assembly and Maintenance
Sunny SF-B1714 comes partially assembled. The flywheel, crankset, belt, and brake comes within their position.
The only parts which are needed to assemble are a seat, rear base bar, handlebars, saddles, and pedals.
This would take an hour and there is also a manual inside the package that can help in putting the parts together.
Maintenance is really easy for this spin bike as most of the parts are highly durable and long-lasting.
Its drive system does not need any lubrication, the break does not need any replacement. All that is needed for it is to look for the loose bolts or damaged parts, and some cleanliness for the bike.
Sunny Health & Fitness Evolution Pro SF-B1714 is a highly durable spin bike with a heavy flywheel, a magnetic drive system, and sturdy frame construction. It offers a Q-Factor and a plush seat. The seat and handlebars are 4-way adjustable.
