Pros and Cons for the JTX Exercise Bike Range:

Main Pros or Advantages (10+)

  • Excellent quality of bikes overall with no impact on your knee or ankle joints which reduces the chances of injury unlike treadmills or road running
  • The oversized cushioned seats adjusts both horizontally and vertically for added comfort
  • They include solid transport castor wheels which significantly help with moving the exercise around your home from room to room
  • You have the ability to design and save up to 4 different personalised training programs to suit your own fitness levels on the Cyclo – Go home version
  • Great levels of resistance are available to choose from so you can select lower levels for warms ups and higher levels for more endurance training.
  • Noise levels are very low as they offer a smooth and quiet pedalling motion throughout even at high intensity levels
  • The console computer trackers give you all the information one would expect and tracks all the main parameters and metrics one would see available in top of the range exercise bikes and gyms around the country including body fat and pulse rates
  • You will also find the pedals easy to work with which are large, comfortable and the straps are secure
  • They offer a great and reliable service and will deliver the next day (if ordered before 2pm) and will drop in into the room of your choice which is a superior level of service. They also give you a message with a 2 hour time slot the day before the delivery.
  • Certain models have built in speakers plus Bluetooth connectivity so you can integrate apps such as Kinomap and the resistance levels will match those that are on the screen of your chosen virtual race
  • With the Cyclo 5, you have the self-generating power upgrade option which means that it won’t require cables or external power supply which means no cable wires and a tidier home gym overall
  • Lastly, to help you get started, JTX can also offer a free personalised training plan for you from an in-house personal trainer to help you reach your fitness goals and keep you motivated for longer

Main Cons or Disadvantages (10+)

  • Unfortunately, they cannot be folded away after use like what can be done for their treadmill range
  • The price difference between the retail price and the promotion price is far too big which we do not like – it suggests that the standard prices are inflated somewhat to begin with which in turn inflates the potential savings on offer.
  • Instead of offering such large discounts at specific times of the year, we believe it would be better to have a more rounded all year round price to cater for more people.
  • They can offer you a 28 day money back guarantee but please note that this will be minus the fees incurred with the collection
  • The cost of assembly is quite high (over £100) so you are better off tackling this yourself, they indicate that assembly assistance is not needed anyway.
  • If you need a Saturday delivery, it will cost you an additional £20 which needs to noted
  • Harder to reach locations in the UK will require additional delivery costs and more time to deliver and in some cases can be up to 5 working days to complete
  • The deliveries are generally very good however the companies used by JTX can be somewhat unreliable at times at meeting specific delivery time slots which is no fault of JTX themselves but is something to consider nonetheless
  • Assembly is not all that bad but you do need to ensure that you read all the instructions carefully and follow the steps without any mistakes.
  • Prices levels for their premium models will be viewed as being too high for too many people
  • Many people struggle with so many pieces that need to be assembled together – everything needs to be laid out clearly before you start and in some cases will take over an hours work to complete

Conclusion:

Do we recommend JTX Exercise Bikes? Yes - without a shadow of a doubt! The quality of the build, features, accessories, programmes, noise levels and overall smooth pedalling action was exactly as what we expected and more. The assembly is really simple but does need careful attention and the service level we found to go beyond our own expectations in terms of deliveries and back up support. Selected models have Bluetooth connectivity so you can also download various app’s on your smartphone or tablet and the complete real cycle routes from across the world which again keeps you motivated for longer.
