Product Description

The Kettler Giro GT is the home version of the popular spinning bikes used in health clubs. Perfect for speed training as its uses particularly robust technology and a freewheel flywheel. Unlike club bikes the Kettler Giro GT is a self generating programmable bike with 12 programmes to choose from including pulse related programmes that are monitored either by the hand grip pulse sensors or the optional cardio pulse set. Electronically adjustable magnetic brake system increases the resistance against a heavy 18kg flywheel. The racing saddle can be adjusted both vertically and horizontally and the pedals feature toe clips just like a racing bike. A German made bike for the regular cyclist.

Solid and stylish. All that it does it does well. Especially handy not to have to plug it in and has a fairly smooth action. But... there are a few things it doesn't do that you might have hoped it would. The saddle doesn't go high enough if you are over about 6'1". Well, it would if you drilled an extra hole in the seat post. If you do drill an extra hole in the seat post to raise it, you might find that the seat is now too high for the handlebars, which won't go high enough either, and you can't butcher them because the wiring won't stretch any further. So unless you like a really low riding position, or you are content to forget about getting down on your elbows and not use the triathlon position, or you are under 6'1", look elsewhere. Next, the bike has 32 levels of resistance but these are probably not enough if you are anything like a serious cyclist. The range of resistance isn't big enough. Next, the calorie counter is described as approximate. "Approximate" flatters it. According to the read-out I had, I was burning several thousand calories an hour - which is simply impossible. As even an approximate guide, it is useless. However, if all you want is a benchmark against which to compare future effort, it does seem at least to be consistent - just don't think it can tell you how much fat you've burned or how much cake you can eat to compensate. The manual is also terribly written, though you can find your way around by playing about a bit. Some ads for these bikes that I have seen claim that the computer tells you your output in watts. Mine doesn't. If you want this function, check first. Given the problems with the calorie read-out, the watts probably wouldn't be reliable anyway. This is really a bike for mid-range fitness. It is not a substitute for a spinning bike for anyone who wants plenty of resistance, but it might be for those who want high revs, and you won't really be able to compare your performance with other types of machine.

awesome piece of kit, very very heavy so sturdy when using. Struggled a little putting together-pictorial instructions for computer assembly don't quite tally but with a bit of fettling I managed to sort. Also actual computer programming appears complicated but starting to get my head around. Would definitely recommend this item, amazing value.
