Here's an online review of the bike:

Technical Information:
Made by ICG in Germany, which makes Life Fitness, for FlyWheel spin clubs.

New in strapped box

retail 1700

Specs:
Life Fitness IC5 indoor cycling bike review
Height: 47″
Width: 20.5″
Length: 52″
Bike Weight: 112 Pounds
Max User Weight: 330 Pounds
Inseam Capacity: 27″ to 40″
Shipping Weight: 130 Pounds
Designed for health clubs, the Life Fitness IC5 with Myride can accommodate all user heights. Unlike cheap spin bikes with lack of adjustment and non-ergonomic design, this Life Fitness bike fits you and everyone else in your family.

The 330 pounds of user weight capacity indicates the sturdiness of the Life Fitness IC5 spin bike. The compact design and transport wheels of Life fitness IC5 with Myride allow you to use the bike anywhere in the house.

One of the things that I love the most about this Life Fitness bike is safe construction. The entire bike is covered with durable plastic which increases the life of the bike and keeps the naughty fingers away from the moving parts.

So, you can place the Life Fitness spin bike in the house with the peace of mind if there are kids in the house. Note that we still recommend using a bike cover for extra safety and to keep the dust away.

Pedals and Q-Factor:
Life Fitness IC5 indoor bike pedals
Life Fitness IC5 pedals are dual-sided SPD.
IC5 Q factor is 155mm.
Pedal straps are adjustable.
One of the selling factors of this Life Fitness exercise bike is the narrow q-factor. I can not think of any other indoor exercise cycling bike from other brands with such an excellent q-factor.

If you are new to indoor cycling and looking to buy spin bikes, the q-factor should be one of the first features to look at. But what is the spin bike q-factor?

The horizontal distance between the two pedals is the q factor. When there is too much distance between your feet, your ankle, knees, and hips can not stay aligned.

And from waist below, your lower body adopts a V-shape form which is not healthy for the long term cycling. Because it brings discomfort and stress on your lower body joints.

Thankfully you don’t need to worry about this when buying Life Fitness IC5 commercial bike because it has a very narrow q factor. And that is one of the great features that you can notice on all ICG IC5 exercise bike reviews.

If you are still reading this IC5 indoor cycling bike review, you already know I love this bike. But the q-factor is not the only reason. Everything single bit of detail is unique and probably that is why finding a Life Fitness ICG exercise bike on sale is difficult.

For instance, the pedals are high-quality Shimano SPD compatible on one side and regular athletic shoe compatible on the other side. So, you can exercise comfortably and safely using a pair of spinning shoes.

IC5 Indoor Cycle Flywheel:

The IC5 indoor cycle has a rear, evenly-weighted flywheel.
IC5 flywheel has a full protection guard.
Forget what you heard about the flywheel weight when the bike has magnetic resistance combined with dual Pulley drive system. The magnetic system combined with dual pulley drive type creates fast and aggressive inertia.

ICG 5 has two pulley systems which you will learn more about it in the drive section down below this ICG IC5 review. But what I can ensure you of, is that the IC5 provides a road bike feel with 9 pounds flywheel.

But what I love even more about the Life Fitness IC5 indoor cycle flywheel is the material and protection guard. Unlike steel, aluminum doesn’t rust and it is always easy to clean.

The protection guard helps to have peace of mind when kids are around. It covers the sharp corners and holes so the naughty fingers are safe.

The ICG series IC5 plastic flywheel guard also protects the flywheel and the magnets if they accidentally come in contact with anything during transportation.

ICG 5 Resistance:
Life-Fitness-IC5-resistance-type
Life fitness Ic5 with Myride resistance is magnetic.
ICG IC5 cycling bike has 100 increments of resistance.
The IC5 bike features lever adjustment.
IC5 indoor cycle monitor displays the current resistance level.
Life Fitness IC5 Indoor Cycle features a maintenance-free and silent magnetic resistance. And in case you don’t know, there are two types of resistance. Friction and magnetic. Magnetic resistance is the best because it is extremely smooth, silent and doesn’t wear out.

The Life Fitness ICG IC5 cycle has 100 precise 100 increments of resistance levels which is unique on the entire market. With ICG5 you are not stuck with 10 levels. There are many resistance increments to allow you to precisely change the resistance to meet your fitness needs.

Another great feature of the Life Fitness IC5 cycle is the tactile lever. Compared to the knob, the lever is much easier to reach and control the resistance with.
It is located at the handlebar post which makes it easy to access from any ride position.

Last but not least, is tracking the resistance level. On most spin bikes, you need to guess the resistance level because they don’t display the resistance level on the screen. But the Life Fitness IC5 takes the guess workout out of the way. Resistance is displayed as 0-100 on the WattRate LCD computer.

IC5 Bike Drive System:

Dual pulley system with 1:10 gear ratio.
This Life Fitness bike has a Poly-V belt drive.
Rear drive-train system.
Full frame shroud.
Since we mentioned a few times in this Life Fitness IC5 bike review, you probably already know that the ICG 5 has a belt drive system. But that is very common these days. Some cheap spin bikes under $150 also have a belt instead of chain.

Now, let’s find out what is actually special about the IC5 drive system. First of all, the Poly-V belt drive is car-grade and doesn’t stretch. So, you don’t need to adjust the belt every week.

The drive mechanism is in the back of the bike which keeps the magnets, flywheel, belt, gears, bearings and everything else away from the sweat zone. So, there is less maintenance and very little to clean after exercise.

But what I love the MOST about the Drive-mechanism of this Life fitness exercise bike is the big belt-ring and two small pulleys that create 1:10 ratio. Meaning, the belt-ring will make 1 turn for every 10 turns of the small pulleys.

And that is how this Life Fitness bike manages to generate an incredibly fast flywheel speed and real rode cycling feels without the need for a heavy flywheel. It is the exact revolutionary dual-pulley technology that Keiser M3i has and it works perfectly.

ICG 5 Handlebars and Seat:
Team ICG IC5 Seat handlebars
IC5 has aluminum pin-to-lock adjustment posts.
IC5 Cycling bike has user-assist handlebar adjustment.
ICG IC5 Life Fitness handlebars are fore/aft adjustable.
Life Fitness IC5 seat is fore/aft adjustable.
The bike has a unisex padded sport saddle.
Handlebars are equipped with dual water bottle holders.
Looking at the pictures I listed through this Life Fitness IC5 reviews, you easily spot this bike’s seat and handlebars are vertically and horizontally adjustable.

And that is very important for spin bikes because without adjustment it is difficult to set up the bike properly for all user heights. But thankfully you don’t need to worry about fitting the Life Fitness IC5.

Every member of your family should be able to do a spinning workout on the Life Fitness IC5 spin bike. There are a few details about the handlebar and seat of this Life Fitness spin bike that make it really stand out.

The IC5 cycling seat has a comfortable racing-styles that minimize chafing. And the handlebars have two easy to reach water bottle holders to keep you hydrated.

Seat and handlebars posts are aluminum which is durable, corrosion resistance, and lightweight compared to steel to make the adjustment easier. The pin-to-lock system doesn’t wear out and can last decades of use.

The ergo formed user-assist handlebars shouldn’t go unnoticed either. It is enhanced for comfort and performance providing a soft, durable rubber grip with innovative bar-ends featuring a natural curve.

Lastly, user-assist technology. It pushes the handlebars up when the adjustment knob is loosened. So, you wouldn’t need to get off the bike and can adjust the handle exactly how it fits you best.
