The reason for all the customer satisfaction with the Sunny Indoor Bike is simple…it’s simple! As the least technology-focused bike on the list, it’s one of the safer options to go for beginners and those looking to save money. It may not be quiet like the Airgometer or the more advanced bikes, but it gets you the workout that you want.
Flywheel and Resistance
The Sunny takes most of the strengths of all the other bikes and compiled it into one. If we take the most recent model, the flywheel can be around 40-49 pounds, far heavier than most. This, however, gives the rider a smoother transition when going from low to high speeds. You don’t need to worry about the bike tipping over or rocking, it’s meant to take the stress.
While not so focused on technology, its resistance adjustment relies on the friction generated by the rider. This may cause problems later on due to the inevitability of wear caused by all the friction. However for the time being it does give the rider a new sense of resistance created by their own power.
Like the 120Xi, the Sunny is strong enough to support the rider standing up. If you’re interested in simulating up-hill or mountain battles, then look into a heavier flywheel version of the Sunny.
Customers are also raving about the ease of assembly. It costs a fortune to replace electronics and hardware on a more advanced bike. The Sunny’s process for assembly is simple, which means disassembly is just as simple. If you need to clean certain areas, many of the parts come off exactly how you put them on.
If you are interested in adding a computer system to the Sunny, you should conduct more research as to which ones are compatible with Sunny. Some riders have even found an interesting way to connect to the Peloton’s app. After paying the small subscription, they too are getting a portion of the Peloton company’s perks.
With its simplistic features, the Sunny can be a very easy choice for a beginners bike. All in all, you are getting what is necessary to complete a standard workout that is as intensive as you need it to be. The resistance system relies on you to make it difficult or easy depending on what you want out a workout. It will be more difficult to track your progress given the lack of dedicated tracking systems on the bike, but a simple pencil and paper will substitute.
It may take you awhile to find a dissatisfied Sunny cycle customer. Aside from its simplicity, the Sunny offers you almost the same experience (save for the Airgometer) that most-forward leaning bikes do. It’s a perfect blend of the accessibility of being an indoor cycle but also has key features, like the friction resistance pad, that gives it that outdoor feeling and edge.
