Delivery excellent day early. Would give it five stars but not used the bike for any amount of time yet. Delivery excellent day early. Idiot proof to put together great way the tension belt is easy to get to unlike the older models over all very pleased. Very quiet compared to all the others.
I read many reviews on this on amazon & argos; especially regarding the seat being uncomfortable. Personally i find it extremely comfortable & this is the third exercise bike i have owned over the years. The seat is wide and lovely to sit on for a good workout. The moving arms of the cycle gives you a full body workout & even after 10mins of varying speeds i feel like i’ve had a good hours workout. I love the fan on the wheel which is v cooling when working up a sweat. I was surprised that there were no straps on the pedals for your feet, but really you don’t need them as the pedals are nice and wide. Was easy to put together-my teenage son & his mate did it in no time. Only one criticism-the speed dial is in-between the bottom of the handlebars making it awkward to change speed when in the middle of a workout. Best exercise bike i’ve had. Doesn’t take up too much room.

Good product, manufacturer fitting and instruction manual unsatisfactory. The bike itself is a really good product, easy and comfortable to use. The three star rating reflects manufacturing errors with pieces incorrectly placed and put together the wrong way round. The instruction manual is far from clear, not an easy to read/follow guide. The combination of manufacturing errors and unclear instructions makes this item extremely difficult to erect. Shame when the product is good value for money.
I took delivery of this cycle this morning and assembled it easily in ten minutes. There were some niggly faults with it however, in that there were scratches down to the metal on the frame,one of the plastic lipped grommets which support the arm exercise spindle was broken, and there were no straps for the pedals. Despite tightening the nuts to the saddle there is still some movement in the saddle itself where it is fitted to the supporting bracket. I am sure non of the above will detract from me using the exercise bike. But it is small things like this which taint the customer purchasing experience. It was almost as if someone had put the bike together and then diss assembled it to send it back.
Great bit of kit, easy to assemble. Be aware when fitting pedals that one is threaded clockwise the other counter clockwise so you don’t end up like other reviews moaning that the pedals don’t go on properly. Very pleased with the bike and very pleased with the price.
V-fit ATC1 Air Cycle : I have to give amazon 10/10 for the way they very quickly handled the problem and replaced the faulty exercise bike – thank you. Replacement exercise bike received and old one returned within a week.Very much appreciatedi’m going to hold off reviewing the bike for a while longer. This is my second v-fit bike. The first lasted 20 years and would have received higher rating. I bought this in september 2014. It’s been working well until july/august 2015 when the lowest (easiest) tension started to gradually tighten making it impossible to exercise. I read somewhere to tighten then loosen the tension dial, which i’ve done, but that only lasts a few minutes before it begins to tighten up again.
