At the time of its release, the Matrix IC7 Group Cycling Bike was—and continues to be—one of the most technologically innovative stationary cycles in the industry—and it doesn’t hurt that it is also very sleek and attractive, too. The bike, which is perfect for group cycling/spinning classes, features a powerful toothed belt driven drivetrain that hugs the chain, and a feather-light aluminum flywheel that can be altered for performance thanks to the bike’s many levels of resistance. The seat of the bike includes gel inserts for added comfort throughout the workout, and the fine-tuned easy-up vertical and horizontal seat adjustments can easily be adapted to fit any size rider. Like the seat, the ergonomically designed handlebars can also be adjusted up/down and from side to side, and the padded cross bar protects the user’s arms and elbows when riding triathlon-style.
The smart and versatile power console on the Matrix IC7 Group Cycling Bike is completely self-powered—roaring to life the moment the rider begins pedaling. Through this console, riders can track most of the usual fitness stats and rubrics found on other stationary bikes, such as heart rate (if they are wearing the optional chest strap), speed, distance, calories, revolutions per minute (RPM), METs, etc. However, in addition to these traditional statistics, the IC7 additionally offers some very cool bonuses not seen with other bikes in this class. Thanks to its patented Coach by Color Training System, the LED lights on the console will actually change color depending on a user’s output—measured in watts—heart rate or any other fitness milestone in which the console is programmed to track. This cool feature offers rapid “at-a-glance” monitoring and encouragement as riders make their way through the chosen course.
The watts and heart rate information on the Matrix IC7 Group Cycling Bike is very accurate (+/- 1%). And its magnetic braking system closely replicates the feel of a real road racing bike. Moreover, given its low profile and lightweight (only 150 pounds), the bike is very portable and a perfect addition to any home gym.
Our professionally refurbished group cycling bikes set the industry standard, which competitors can only try to emulate. This process is done to the manufacturer’s specifications and is conducted exclusively in-house, allowing for complete control over quality. Our certified refurbished gym equipment are truly in a class of their own.
All of the normal wear items on our refurbished spin bikes, including the high-quality grips and seats, are either re-touched or completely replaced as part of our top-notch remanufacturing process. Pedals are also carefully inspected for wear, with those showing signs of deterioration immediately replaced.
The decals and emblems on our fitness products are intended to make them stand out from the competition. Hence, the labels and emblems on our refurbished group cycling bikes are replaced with brand new versions of the original, making it difficult to distinguish the remanufactured products from those that are brand new.
The high-quality fly wheels and drive belts on our refurbished group cycling bikes are crucial to the bike’s performance. Therefore, all flywheels are carefully inspected, and some will undergo the process of powder coating and or re-chroming. Drive belts are always replaced as a matter of procedure.
Our standard practice at GFI is to repair or replace every component of the braking and resistance systems, including tension knobs. Brake pads on our refurbished group cycling bikes are always changed out with modern pads as suggested by the manufacturer—pads designed to increase the lifespan of the braking system.
To make certain that all of the mechanical parts on our refurbished Group Cycling bikes continue to offer the very finest in smooth, quiet performance, components such as bushings are entirely pressed or bored out and replaced with modern copper bushings—parts designed to offer the best in fluidity and function.
The various metal components that comprise the frame and drive systems on our refurbished spin/group cycling bikes can become worn, faded and chipped over time. For that reason, all of these components undergo our systematic refinishing process at our very own silica sandblasting and powder coating facility.
Many of our refurbished group cycling bikes have plastic shrouds that encapsulate the flywheel to prevent potential oxidation (rust). Consequently, we thoroughly inspect all of these components to look for signs of wear. Plastics that are dilapidated are always replaced, while those in good order are merely refinished.
Our Refurbished Machines carry a 1 Year comprehensive parts & labor warranty.
