Well, it was unanimous, OK, almost unanimous, the Keiser M3 spinner won the bike vote by a landslide. And with good reason, it is a terrific product and very well regarded in the commercial spin bike markets. Most importantly it is virtually maintenance free. (unlike our current spin bikes)
Thank you to everyone for providing your input on which of the four sample bikes you preferred. It really helped Jenny and I make a decision as to which bike was best for our members.
So, yes the rumors are true, we have just ordered 15 brand new Keiser M3 bikes, with computers. Delivery is expected to be during the week of December 9!! We are very excited to get our members on these amazing bikes.
Here is a brief list of some of the features: Adjustable Shimano™ Combo Pedals, Four-Way Adjustable Seat, Adjustable Handlebar Height, Anti-Slip Belt (Requiring No Adjustment), Non Wear Magnetic Resistance, Infinite Resistance Adjustment, Smooth Resistance Shifter, Whisper Quiet
Computer Features: RPM (Revolutions Per Minute), Power Output Displays in Watts (currently generating), Heart Rate (Polar compatible), Pedaling Time, Gear (Resistance) (1 to 24 gears), Odometer, Trip Distance
We will be keeping 3 of the Schwinn bikes and deposing of the rest. Regarding buying the old bikes, I have to be honest and tell you that I think it’s a bad idea. These bikes break down with alarming frequency. We have spent a small fortune on repair and maintenance to keep them operating. I wouldn’t wish those kind of problems on anyone I know.
We are planning on ramping up our spin classes once the bikes arrive. Stay tuned for future announcements along those lines.
Don’t forget to come to our Oregon Food Bank event on Thanksgiving morning. The 10th Annual Turkey-Stuffer, Huffer-Puffer, Power-Pilgrim, Sculpting-Settler Boot Camp. Sign up sheets are at the front desk.
