V-Fit SC1-P Aerobic Training Cycle – Grey/, Great spinning bike, but

Bought this as the cheaper spinning bikes on amazon lack reviews where as this one has a good set. Solid product – agree with previous reviewer suggesting this was constructed in a ship yard. In fact i reckon you could use it as a boat anchor as at ~50ish kilos in ain’t going anywhere. That weight though means you can stand and crank happily without worry of it falling over. Fitting quality is very good although only downside is the supplied tools to put it together – they work but you’ll save time and skinned knuckles by using proper spanners and socket drivers. The chain drive is smooth (but a little noisy) and the resistance is fully adjustable from nothing to hellish pain threshold levels for interval training.

Have had this bike over two years now, still in top condition, it is well made and sturdy, great for cardio workouts, no gimmicks just adjust the tension to your workout, just as good a workout as in the gymn.

V-fit SC1-P Aerobic Training Cycle – Silver Grey/Black

  • Heavy duty, tubular steel main frame
  • Club style fixed-wheel drive function with an 18 kg chrome rimmed, balanced cast iron flywheel
  • Racing style saddle with multi angle, 14-position height and eight position reach adjustment
  • Aluminium, racing style, Wellgo cleat-ready pedals with adjustable toe straps
  • Support maximum user weight of 125 kg/275 lbs

This is a proper exercise cycle, just like you use at spinning sessions. There are no fiddly electrical gimmicks that go wrong. I have found this as good as anything i have used in professional gyms. Best used in a garage or somewhere with a strong concrete floor, as this is a solid bike and very heavy. Well worth getting, and i put it together fairly easily. Beware if you do not live on mainland uk. The cost of getting it delivered added 25% to my costs. Otherwise a good value quality product.

Does what it says on the tin. I have had to stop running for a while to help an injury heal and bought this bike to help me maintain my fitness. This is a no nonsense fitness machine that weighs about six tons and i think was built in a ship yard. The earlier reviewer that has rattles can’t have fitted it together properly as once assembled (takes about 45 minutes) and all the bolts tightened i haven’t had a peep out of it. There are no gimmicks like electronic counters or false distance measures, just a huge wheel, a tension knob, saddle, bars and pedals. I set it so that my calf muscles feel a slight burn after a minute or so, then maintain a steady pace. I soon start to sweat then increase the tensions as i progress and want to work harder. I time it for 30 minutes and find after that i am very ready to stop. It is heavy but the wheels allow ease of movement in a limited way.

Sturdy, expensive looking and feeling and almost six months in of daily use it has been faultless. Quick and problem free delivery and very easy to assemble.

V-fit SC1-P Aerobic Training Cycle – Silver Grey/Black : Solid bit of kit & great after salles customer service. This is a solid bit of kit, nothing flash but it does what it says & gives you a goood workout. Fairly easy to assemble & up & running in no time. Had a problem with the pedal & crank, which spare parts could not resolve so a replacement bike was sent out, well impressed with the customer service. Now not only am i using the bike but my son & daughter are as well. This machine is great value for the money :-).

  1. Unlike cheaper excise bikes this is very well made and if you want a product built to last longer than a month of using daily buy this one. I have had many different ones over the years and this has been the best by miles.

    1. I bought this exercise bike because of its narrow saddle and heavy fly-wheal and i was very pleased with these. Adjustment of resistance is smooth and the heavy fly-wheel makes the cycling experience a good one. My only objection to the bike is that it is quite noisy. The bike gives a fairly sharp, cracking sound when i cycle; it sounds like the ball bearings are broken. I sent the first bike back, but the next one i received made the same sound, so i ended up keeping it. I would have liked a bike that made less noise though.

    Built like a tank – but worried for my extremities. Easy enough to assemble by yourself but due to the weight of the bike probably much easier with 2 people. With everything tightened up very sturdy feeling and rock solid. I took a little time to adjust the riding position via seat and handlebar height so i now feel much more comfortable than when i started off. I did find the seat quite uncomfortable as i have a bony butt so bought a gel cover which made a lot of difference – however after a period of time riding, the blood supply to my junk seems to get cut off, and nice though the pins and needles feel when the supply is restored, leave me worrying as a bloke whether some sort of damage might be taking place. I was hoping someone might have some tips to prevent this so i didn’t feel like an eunuch when i get off the bike?.

    1. Was looking for a good quality bike to do intensive spinning workouts at home. Am very pleased i bought this bike as it is solid and robust, design is good and it works very well. I am 6ft plus and weigh over 90kg so am keen to have a robust product that feels secure and stable when pushing hard. I am impressed with the bikes performance and stability so far. Delivery was quick, was well packaged and it was easy to assemble.

    Bought this spin bike this week. A very sturdy frame with handy levelling adjusters on the feet for an uneven floor. Spins very smoothly and quietly. The down sides are that no matter how much you tighten the handle bars and seat it has an annoying wobble in both that is really frustrating as the rest of the bike is so sturdy. It doesn’t come with a computer aahhhhhh so i rang up the manufacturers who said that any bike computer will work with it–they don’t work on it as bike computers are designed to fit onto spoked bikes, not onto spin bikes as i found out today when i bought a bike computer.

    Hi my partner bought this bike for me as a gift i spin in the gym as often as possible and wanted a spin bike for the house. I received fast delivery and the two men put it straight in the flat a great service. Being a girl i got a mate to come and hep me get it out the box and assemble it as it weighs a ton.It is a solid piece of kit just as good as any spin bike ive used in the gym. No fear of toppling over while in use but its developed a clicking noise from the pedal/crank area and it gets quite loud especially when hitting fast speed is this normal ive had the bike two weeks now and its only getting louder.

      1. Quality better than expected. This machine is built to last. Assembly instructions addequate,read thoroughly and no problems at all. I assembled alone but having another person to help would make it even easier.

    I wanted to get an exercise bike to help me get fit again and lose weight having broken my leg. I looked around at what was available and read lots of reviews, and eventually decided on this one. I wanted a mechanical bike – most ‘normal’ bikes are controlled by computers, so however good the bike, if the computer goes wrong, you’re just left with a very expensive ornament. It meant i spent more than i’d intended to, but i’m delighted with my purchase. It’s incredibly sturdy – it feels like it’s made of girders, but owing to the wheels at the front i find i can move it around the flat by myself. The two main criticisms i have found of the bike are that it is incredibly uncomfortable and that the saddle and the handle bars wobble. It really is quite uncomfortable – exactly like all the spin bikes i’ve ever used at the gym. I’ve got a gel saddle for it, and use bike gloves, and while it’s still a bit uncomfortable, it really is no different from any other spin bike. As for the wobbliness, i from my experience, i agree with the reviewers who suggested that the user hadn’t tightened the adjusters enough – having tightened mine the bike seems as stable as a small mountain.

    1. Took less than 20 mins to do, however some part are very heavy so it may be useful to have someone else at hand to help out. Ladies and men with bad backs. The instructions they give could be a lot better and do not instill you with confidence. Saying that, once set up it is very easy to use and very like the machines you get in the gym. Just remember to slow down gradually or use the break, do not suddenly stop cycling and try to get of. I also think they should supply a spin dvd to further enhance the productall in all and very good product, a bit pricey but you can see why as it is well put together. My only future worry is how easy will it be to get parts (e. New break pads) as they are continuously being used to set speed??.

  12. This being my first time buying any sort of exercise bike, i wanted to make sure i made the right choice. So did my research, read reviews and decided on this onei’m very happy to say that i feel i made the right choice. Only thing i would say is i’m not sure it would suit anyone over 6’0″ tall, but i guess that depends on your own personal setup/body type. There were some reviews that said the seat and handle bars wobble a little bit, yes the do. . If you’re not on the bike and you take your hand and give it a little shake. However, while on the bike (because of your own body weight), you don’t feel a thing. The bike is very sturdy and well built.(this is from doing around 6/7 sessions over 2 weeks on the bike).
