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.

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 :-).
