The DMASUN Indoor Stationary Exercise Bike Review
The DMASUN Indoor Stationary Exercise Bike Overview
Finally, we are moving on to yet another brand.
We previously reviewed some gym bikes from Marcy. All in all, they were cooling looking bikes. However, they lacked the necessary punch to entice intermediate and hardcore users.
Specifically, the Marcy M-176 Bike has lean-mean looks. Nonetheless, we were put off by the significantly light flywheel (20lbs). Apart from that, it’s a decent gym bike that might appeal to you if you aren’t looking for anything serious.
Today, we are reviewing the DMASUN Indoor Stationary Fitness Bike. Likewise, it looks good. More importantly, it’s one of the best selling fitness bikes on Amazon. With thousands of 5-star reviews, we thought it would be an interesting bike to feature here on EllipticalNation.
First and foremost, we are pleased with the 40lbs flywheel. Remember, the heavier the flywheel, the smoother the experience. On top of that, it also comes with a decent display console that tracks progress.

1. The frame and console
The DMASUN Fitness Bike features the “standard” bike design.
Unfortunately, for us, it isn’t as cool-looking as the Marcy Fitness Bikes. Nonetheless, its build is impressively sturdy. Some of its parts are heavy-duty ABS plastic. Don’t get sceptical, these plastics don’t compromise the bike’s strength and stability. They are only there for safety purposes.
Additionally, we have the scratch and rust-resistant paint coating on the frame and handlebars. The flywheel is chrome-plated to prolong its half-life.
Finally, the bike is almost twice as heavy as your standard road bike. Therefore, it won’t wobble even with heavy exercises.
Next, we have the LCD console. It’s a simple one (Only one button). Unfortunately, the bike doesn’t come with pre-installed workout programs. The console only takes time, distance, speed, and calorie readings.
It comes with a unique “Scan Mode”. This mode flashes your reading in several metric scales. The console automatically sleeps to save on energy when there is no activity. It will start when the button is pressed or if you start pedalling.
2. The drive and resistance system
The DMASUN Gym Bike has a manual friction resistance system. Therefore, you don’t have to connect it to a power source. Unfortunately, this also means the bike can’t automatically adjust its resistance.
You use a knob to adjust the level of resistance you need for your workout sessions. To engage the brakes, you have to press the knob downwards.
The bike comes with a 40lbs flywheel. In our opinion, that’s an impressive weight. It’s perfect for intense workout sessions. Also, the resistance works when pedalling in reverse. It’s specifically made for spin workouts. Therefore, expect an experience that is similar to the one you get from cycling normal road bikes.
It operates using a belt drive system. Additionally, it requires little maintenance. You’ll not have to frequently lubricate the system for a smooth experience.
3. The adjustable seat and handlebar
Indeed, the bike has a 4-way adjustable seat (up-down, down, front, and back). It’s impressively comfortable because of its ergonomic structure and padding. It’s can comfortably cater to persons of heights 5’0″ to 6’4″. Additionally, the seat has a durable faux leather cover and a central grove for enhanced breathability. Oh, plus the seat is fully replaceable.
Next, we have the adjustable handlebar. The handlebar is multi-grip (race, drop-down, and loop-type grips). We also have anti-slip urethane material. Fortunately, the grips have the EKG handgrip pulse sensors for heart-rate monitoring.
The DMASUN Indoor Stationary Exercise Bike is capable. It can easily handle intermediate and some hardcore workout sessions.
Is it a high-end premium indoor fitness bike? No. Nonetheless, it’s among the best all-rounded fitness bike available in the market. Moreover, it also comes with an affordable price tag.
