Life Fitness IC6 Indoor Cycling Bike, Powered by ICG
The IC6 Indoor Cycle utilizes a powerful full-color WattRate® TFT computer, self-powered by the bike’s generator, to provide the meaningful connection of exercisers to their workout. This interaction includes data exchange between devices and the Coach By Color® intensity guide.
Combine Bluetooth phone pairing and ANT+ data streaming – compatible with all ANT+ services – plus advanced magnetic resistance and a LCD display, and you'll see the IC6 delivers a powerful experience that leaves its higher priced competitors envious.
WATTRATE TFT COMPUTER Included
The WattRate® TFT computer features a bright, full-color, self-powered, fully integrated TFT screen and a front LED display. The high-powered LEDs and cleverly designed casing flood the front panel with bright, rich color that can be seen over great distances and wide angles. It is an incredibly effective yet versatile option that works in a wide range of studio and cardio floor spaces. The five touch sensor buttons ensure a fast and intuitive operation of the computer, even during workouts.
BLUETOOTH 4.0 AND ANT +
You can now pair your training applications to view, save and track workout history. With the ability to track your performance, there has never been a better time to ride.
The brake lever offers tactile feedback to the user and allows the adjustment of the magnetic resistance quickly. Located at the handlebar post and following its vertical adjustment, the lever is easy to access from any ride position. The resistance level is displayed as 0-100 on the WattRate® TFT computer.
ADVANCED ERGO-FORMED HANDLEBAR
Featuring impressive curves and soft PVC, this wider bar provides larger users more support, additional Time Trial bar-ends, central ride-easy position and intelligently integrates the WattRate® TFT computer by not exposing any cables and allowing the consoles position to adjust inline with the bars.
HIGH PERFORMANCE OFF-SET FRAME GEOMETRY WITH 155MM Q-FACTOR
The off-set frame design provides a perfect geometry enabling a wide range of bike adjustments. A Q-Factor of 155mm makes the Indoor Cycle feel more like a real bike. The benefits include increased safety, comfort, and efficiency in each and every pedal stroke.
COMFORT PERFORMANCE SADDLE
The comfort unisex saddle has a sleek design, that enhances the rider performance and overall comfort. Designed with an opening in the heart of the saddle that relieves pressure on the bodies more sensitive parts whilst riding.
POLY-V BELT DRIVETRAIN
The drivetrain equipped with Poly-V belt is capable of transferring extreme levels of torque smoothly and its 1:10 gear ratio generates an incredibly fast flywheel speed. Requiring less maintenance, belts save the club owner money and decrease liability. They have fewer breakdowns and make less noise.
SUPERIOR VERTICAL & HORIZONTAL BIKE ADJUSTMENTS
Superior 4-way adjustments (saddle height, saddle fore/aft, handlebar height, handlebar fore/aft) ensure a finely-tuned fit for all riders.

I recently purchased the IC6 to fill the void left after my local gym shut down due to COVID-19 restrictions. My gym has used several different indoor cycling bikes in the past but is currently using the IC4 series (also available from TheFitnessOutlet). For home use, I really wanted to try the upgraded computer and MyRideVX so I opted for the IC6. The bike feels great and I couldn't be happier with the fit and ride of this machine!
The upgraded coach by color feature is very helpful and helps push me when I ride without an instructor. However, with MyRide VX you have a pretty decent instructor substitute and I've been enjoying it so far. It's great to have so much content on the device that does NOT require subscription. I imagine that over time the content will get a little old but I hope that there are content upgrade options at a later time if/when I get to that point. Still there are a few dozen different workouts with plenty of great scenery so it should last for quite awhile.
The customer service has been great. I reached out and received multiple responses within just minutes and my issues where immediately resolved. I couldn't ask for anything else from a reseller. You probably won't find better pricing on this equipment either.
