Boulder-based Stages Cycling announced the StagesBike, an indoor spin bike for use with apps and online training platforms such as Zwift. It uses their dual-sided power measurement system, along with ANT and Bluetooth connectivity for all control modes. Custom fit comes by way of adjustable length cranks, full saddle adjustment, and bars that may be swapped out for any standard bicycle handlebar.

While Stages Cycling is better known for their power meters, their parent company has been in the fitness bike game for years, and their founders have history working with Nautilus. Their latest product combines all of their expertise into one product – an indoor bike that comes equipped with their 3rd generation dual-sided power meter.

The StagesBike includes a tablet holder and uses ANT+ or Bluetooth for connectivity. It also includes two USB ports to charge your devices while riding.

The cranks have four length positions and turn an internal Gates Carbon Drive for maintenance-free operation. Electronic resistance can crank up to 3,000 watts at 120rpm, providing more than enough of a workout for just about anyone.

The brake hoods include programmable electronic shift buttons, along with sprint buttons in the drops. Climbing or TT/aero bar shifters may be added as well. Don’t like the stock bar shape or size? It may be swapped out to any other standard road bike bar.

Laser-etched scales for saddle height, reach, and stack keep your adjustments on-point. Note that the saddle clamp allows for any standard saddle with round rails – while most other spin bikes use proprietary systems that don’t allow you to swap out to your saddle of choice.

Patt Warner, Vice President of Stages commented, “Stages Power meters revolutionized the power measurement category when we launched six years ago, but some riders remain unaware of our vast history and knowledge base drawn from building equipment for the fitness club industry. The StagesBike maintains our focus on innovation, accuracy, and reliability, pairing our years of experience building bikes that can withstand the abuse of a fitness club with the real-world cycling expertise demanded by Tour de France-level professionals.”

The StagesBike will be available for consumers in Q1 of 2020, for a retail price of $2,600 – 2,800 USD.

This looks really, really nice. I love the crank length options since most studio bikes are 170’s, the micro adjustability with hash marks, and any seat bar combo you like. Multiple shift point options is a nice touch as well. The Stages SC3 indoor bike is bombproof and has a unmatched ride feel. I am sure this one will be no different. I now have a very good reason to start zwifting!

I was extremely disappointed by a number of features of the SC3 (https://casesfivecents.wordpress.com/2016/03/25/stages-cycles-sc3-review/comment-page-1/#:~:text=Let's%20start%20with%20the%20good,should%20provide%20a%20good%20fit), that really undermined what a bike with a proper, direct-measure powermeter could have been.
Very intrigued to see this newer model, that appears to have addressed many of the issues I disliked. Moving away from the twisty-knob resistance is a huge factor for me, so I’m intrigued to know if the electronic gear-shifting retains the best part of the old system (continuous resistance) whilst alleviating the draw-back of no rider-feedback as to resistance level. Basically, if there are loads of gear settings and it’s easy to check which one your in, this will be a huge improvement from the SC3.
It’d appear that there’s much more customization in terms of fit, and more realistic handlebars – plus the option for substituting the riders own is a customer-friendly touch that will be appreciated greatly.
The move to dual-power is also a superb step, so whilst I’ve only learned to tolerate the SC3 after 4 years, this new version might well be the wonder that it’s predecessor failed to be.
