The Derby Recreation Commission unanimously approved the addition of 21 new Keiser M3i Indoor Cycles at its June 11 board meeting.
Plans were presented due to staff recommendation of getting the bikes delivered and installed prior to annual maintenance and the August membership pricing changes.
“We feel with updates in technology and changes made over time, we researched what would be best out on the market,” DRC Director of Facilities Darcie Parkhurst said. “We’ve been anticipating this replacement for several years.”

|2009||Five additional bikes|
|2013||Four new bikes, four from 2004 move to track area|

According to Parkhurst, per bike bids were placed for Keiser ($1,396.50), a Lemond RevMaster Pro ($1,499.00) and a Precor Spinner ($2,400.00). The Keiser bid was selected based on price and staff preference.
The company will also be used to ship, assemble and install the bikes at the DRC. That bid ($32,188.84) was taken over MidStates Fitness ($38,850.00).
The DRC budgeted $133,050.00 in its capital improvements. Expenditures to date sit at $45,784.52, leaving a balance of $87,265.48.
