Spinning bikes such as the JTX Cyclo-6 are designed to give the user an intensive cardio workout which feels like cycling on a road bike. Your cardiovascular health can be improved, muscles strengthened and body fat reduced in a short space of time by using your spin bike just a few times a week.
Fully adjustable cycling positions
[one_half]One of the great benefits of using the JTX Cyclo-6 is the fact that all the most important parts can be easily adjusted using a simple lever system.
Underneath the seat is a support bar, at the back of which is a small lever which can be used to lock and unlock the horizontal movement of the seat.
Just below this on the vertical seat support bar is another lever that can be used for adjusting the seat height to make sure you are at the perfect height to experience the most natural cycling motion.
Unlike many spinning style bikes where just the seat is adjustable, the JTX Cyclo-6 actually allows you to adjust not just the height of the handlebars, but also how far away from you they are.
This is again made possible through a couple of small levers positioned out of sight when cycling.[/one_half]
The bike can also be moved easily between different positions if needed using the set of wheels on the front.
Variable resistance and foot pedal design
Although there aren’t any fixed levels of digital resistance in the same way as other exercise bikes in the Cyclo range have, you can easily set the resistance manually even when in the middle of a workout.
This is thanks to the JTX Manual Infinity Resistance System. Positioned just before the handlebar support frame is a small hand wheel that can be used to adjust how close the friction pad is to the flywheel, therefore affecting how much resistance is created.
The lower resistance settings are perfect for simulating a light cycling action, while the ease and speed of adjustment also makes the JTX Cyclo-6 perfect for interval training and even simulating the difficulty of a hill climb.
The flywheel itself weighs in at an impressive 22kg which helps to ensure a smooth and stable cycling workout.
The road bike style clip pedals ensure your feet don’t slip during high speed or high resistance workouts.

Handlebar design and the digital console
As well as being completely adjustable in their height and distance from you when cycling, the handlebars also feature a few other useful design ideas that can benefit your training.
[one_half]The main benefit of the JTX Cyclo-6 over similarly priced spinning bikes such as the Pro-Form 290 SPX is the addition of an on-board digital console.
This helps you keep track of all the most important workout information such as time, distance, speed, calories burned and even heart rate when you hold onto the sensors.[/one_half]
Although there are a few different angles and possible grip positions to the handlebars, the sensors have been positioned on the higher horizontal section which is most likely to be used for the longest time during the majority of workouts.
Although there are none of the built in pre-set workout programmes or colourful LCD screens like upright exercise bikes, this doesn’t feel like a major let down. Spinning bikes are designed for more intense cycling workouts which closely match road cycling, which the JTX Cyclo-6 does perfectly.
