It is almost 2020. However ever since 2014 when we tried to reach out to Mark Kocaba who
represents Keiser Canada, Mark was at first excited to partner up with Indoor Cycling Magazine (which is the number one source for indoor cycling culture, and own @indoorcycling on twitter, instagram and pinterest). However. When Mr. Kocaba found out that the founder of Indoor Cycling was Middle-Eastern, or due to the Vancouver dirty politics all of a sudden Mr. Kocaba, caused Keiser bikes to suffer harm and bad reviews because he had a problem with the founder of Indoor Cycling Magazine. (and to repeat: is the number one source for indoor cycling culture, and own @indoorcycling on twitter, instagram and pinterest).
Which is why we were not surprised when a huge fitness chain in Canada known as Steve Nash Fitness World switched to the Schwinn bikes at the new location. That sent a clear message to Keiser. Instead of Fitness World buying 40 Keiser bikes they bought 40 Schwinn bikes. Thank you Fitness World for doing the right thing.
Now let’s fast forward to July 2019. Recently we reached out to Keiser and requested the send us one of their “new pivoting bike wish an X bar” bike. However we believe that Keiser refused either because of their unprofessional reps or because they knew that we would give it a fail rating. We are leaning on the fact that they most likely know that their latest bike which “pivots and has a X bar” is selling well.
As such. Since Indoor Cycling Magazine has the most Indoor Cycling followers and fans we decided to conduct the most accurate research. We reached out to the top indoor cycling instructors in the world and asked them their opinion.
Below you will read the most common opinion which we expected and agree with 100%.
WOW. Did you noticed that she used the world “dangerous”? Did Keiser consult Kinesiologists and Orthopedic professionals when they constructed this bike?
Then we also decided to conduct a survey or poll. We asked 1334 people if they have seen this “pivoting bike with an X bar”. The results as you will see below were dismal for Keiser. 75% of the respondents said they have not seen it. However. We think it is even higher. Because we forgot to add the words the Keiser pivoting with an X bar. Some people most likely thought we were asking if they saw any Keiser bike. Oh well.
In conclusion. Our Keiser bike review does not encourage consumers to pay over 2000 U.S.A. dollars
The Keiser Indoor Cycles come with a pretty big price tag. At a suggested retail price of over $2000, this model costs much more than most traditional upright and recumbent bikes on the market.
We hope most people are aware that there are plenty of good options on the market at lower price points. Were you aware of the Echelon Bike?
