Most users have been using the JLL IC600 every day for several years and have never experienced any mechanical issues.
Many of delighted customers who purchased the JLL IC600 described the assembly process of the product as “effortless”. The product comes partly assembled and has easy to follow instructions. However, many users said the process was pretty self-explanatory, typically taking no longer than 30 minutes to assemble.
Hardcore cyclists were delighted with the stability of their riding experience when using the JLL IC600. Many of which commented that the bike didn’t sway or budge even on uneven ground. Therefore, if you want to improve your fitness doing hard HIIT programs the JLL IC600 won’t let you down.

JLL IC600 Advance Commercial Indoor Cycling Bike- Key Features
Like many indoor cycling bikes, the JLL IC600 takes a minimalistic approach to digital features. Therefore, it does not feature many fancy pre-programmed workout programs. It does, however, feature a 5-function electronic display unit that shows time passed, distance covered, speed, calories burned and heart rate.
These key performance metrics are incredibly useful for measuring workout intensity and tracking post workout performance. The heart rate reading is incredibly useful for assessing fitness levels during post-workout cool down.
However, if you are someone who prefers to follow computer guided indoor cycling programs an indoor cycling bike may not be right for you. Instead, we recommend trying an upright exercise bike like the Pure Fitness and Sports MCL800 which comes with 12 pre-programmed workout programmes.
Extra Large Two-Way Flywheel
The JLL IC600 features an extra-large 22 KG flywheel that could challenge even the most experienced of athletes. However, don’t be put off if you are a first-time rider, the bikes resistance levels are completely customisable. Simply adjust the resistance knob to find a comfortable resistance level for your needs.
In addition to its large smooth flywheel, the JLL IC600 incorporates frictional resistance, accurately replicating the feeling of riding a traditional outdoor training bike.
What is unique about the JLL IC600 compared to the rest of the JLL IC range is its driver systems. Most of JLL’s IC’00 bikes feature chain direct chain drivers to turn the flywheel. Whereas, the JLL IC600 features a rubber belt driver. This means significantly less risk of chain breaks or jamming. Ultimately, prolonging the lifespan of the bike and minimising any maintenance costs.
As a built-in safety feature, the JLL IC600 has a built-in emergency stop button. This will bring the bike to a halt immediately should you wish to stop suddenly. This feature is only typically seen in premium indoor cycling bike.

Adjustable Toe Cages

Water Bottle Holder
Cycling for long periods of time, especially indoor can leave you over headed and dehydrated. This, in turn, can lead to a number of problems such as cramping and fatigue. Therefore, it is of paramount importance that riders have access to fluids as they cycle.JLL have designed the IC600 with not one, but two water bottle holders. These holders are conveniently located beside each of the bikes handlebar-armrests. Allowing for easy access to water at all times without ruining the rhythm of your workout.
Other indoor cycling bikes tend to put these water bottles at the sides of the bike. This makes it very difficult to continue cycling while reaching for fluids. Therefore, the JLL IC600 has one of the most user-friendly designs of any indoor cycling bike on the market.
However, it is important to note this bike I considerably heavier than any other JLL IC model, weighing in at 71 KG. Therefore, be incredibly careful while lifting this product, especially if you have back problems.
