I had the the We R Sports Xpower model for almost 2 years and even though that bike was decent, I started to feel that I needed something a little bit sturdier. It was fine when I was just starting out but now that I have built some leg muscles and stamina, I think decided it was time to go for the next stage.
The good bits about the VenomX Spinning Bike
The bike is huge, the pictures really don't show this but it feels like it's twice the size of the other one.
This one does not flinch no matter how much I throw at it!
The handlebars are a lot more comfortable and hefty and the fore/aft adjustments are a bonus that I didn't think I'd use but I am.
It also seems to ride a lot better than the previous one, I don't know if it is the heavier flywheel, the upgraded crank or the fact that the resistance is provided via a pad on top of the flywheel (rather than 2 on each side) but either way, a much better ride.
The monitor is miles better in terms of readability, the previous one had a tiny screen which meant that you needed to press the button everytime you wanted to know different stats. On this, you have a lot more information shown because of the much larger screen size. If there's a thing that warrants the extra price, this is it!
The transport wheels seem better on this too but it's not something I really use so I can't really comment on this other than that it looks better.
I wish the monitor had slightly more functions and had the ability to connect to my phone to store the sessions. Maybe that's asking for a lot but it would be nice.
The transport wheels; I don't use them, have no need for them and I want to remove them. I can remove the wheels themselves but the bars still stick out.
All in all, couldn't be happier. For the money, I haven't been able to find anything better (I did my research, for quite a bit) and because their support was always on point, it was a no-brainer. Only had it for about a month so things could change but so...
