There are two series for the Spinner Blade from Star Trac. The model which we are to discuss in this article is 6960, the one that features a chain drive. It is a bike, is pretty much same as the Spinner NXT model, only Spinner NXT comes with the belt drive.
Now the belt drive is slightly quieter than the chain drive and it does not require maintenance, but on the other hand, even if the drive belt of the bike is heavy-one and the industrially tested, it will eventually wear out after the while. The chain can last the lifetime and it is easy to find the replacement for it in the highly unlike event which it breaks.
The Star Trac Spinner Blade is the commercial grade bike. It offers the best frame construction in the business and the best spin training setting which you can find. There is the little condition to cover regarding this exercise bike.
The Frame of the Spinner Blade Cycle is made of chase aluminum, but even though the aluminum considerably lighter than the steel, the particular bike still is quite heavy with the assembled weight of 131 lbs. There is actually a lot of engineering behind the frame construction as the bike is weight fits accordingly to its dimension, offer maximum security for any type of spin workout.
The bike is considerably longer than the other indoor cycling bike. It is almost 10-inch longer than the Bladez Fusion GS ll.But on the other hand, it is still far away from to having the huge footprint of a treadmill, such as the Sole F85.
Seat and handlebars :
The seat supplies with the Star Trac Spinner Blade is pretty much standard spin bike seat. It does feature some padding, but it does not offer the cushioning which you will find on an upright bike seat, such as the Ironman X-Class 310. It is the slim seat which you will find on the race bikes.
The seat has the pretty standard connection point though and you can easily find a replacement for it, in the case you really want the bigger one. The other alternative is to increase the seat’s comfort if the case, is to add a “sheepskin” or gel seat cover.
