Today we will be taking a look at the MYX Fitness Bike. We gave it 4.7 out of 5 stars because of its affordable price tag and ability to accommodate users of all sizes and levels.
The MYX Fitness bike is great for beginners, advanced athletes, and larger/taller riders that are looking for some extra positive motivation and direction with instructor-led classes. The interface is user-friendly and provides a non-intimidating environment that is pleasing to workout with. Rather than an intense studio environment with flashing lights, the MYX app provides a zen-like feel with knowledgeable instructors that use positive psychology to motivate you along your ride.

The height capacity of 6’8” and a weight capacity of 350 lbs makes this bike uniquely suitable for taller and larger riders.

This bike is powered by a friction-resistant flywheel (as opposed to the silent magnetic flywheel that is found on other models). That means that two felt pads squeeze against the flywheel to add resistance, rather than a magnetic. The upside is that the bike becomes more affordable, but the downside is that is it not as silent or accurate as magnetic flywheels.

The workouts are based on heart-rate training, rather than setting your bike at specific resistance levels, so that is something to consider when deciding if this bike is for you.

We love the high-tech features, build quality, and affordability of the MYX Fitness bike and hope our review helps you decide if it’s a good fit.

Let us know if you have any questions in the comments!


  1. Thanks for this review. Can you have more than one user on the app? Say myself and my husband so our rides stay personalized to us?

  2. What about for shorter people? I’m 5’1” with t-rex arms. Do you think I’ll be able to reach the pedals and handles comfortably?

  3. Would you say this is better for general fitness than Concept-2 Rower? I just don’t see how you get a full body workout on a bike more so than a rower. My wife wants to get one of these and I want to get a rower, which is why I am asking.
