We’re not taking any chances when it comes to working out, which is why we’re getting our hands on the new CRU TV Bike as soon as we can. Spin enthusiasts no longer have to rely on their laptops for virtual lessons, as the bike comes with a 21.5-inch HD touch screen made to stream quality content like your music-driven classes. The screen even rotates 180 degrees left and right so you can transition to floor-based workouts like yoga with ease. Unlike regular spin bikes, it also comes with a stats page that allows users to keep track of their progress with post-workout statistics such as output, cadence, distance and calorie burn.
