Velocity Exercise CHB-R2101 Magnetic Recumbent Bike Review
Velocity Exercise CHB-R2101 Magnetic Recumbent Bike is a nice bike. It can be a little wobbly when you ride fast, but I need to lose weight so I would attribute that to my extra adipose tissue and not necessarily fault the bike. The seat is not uber-comfy.
However, putting a pillow on top of the seat is a quick remedy to this issue. With two strips of sticky Velcro you can attach your iPod or smartphone to the handlebars in front of you and either listen with ear buds or watch Hulu on your phone while you ride, which helps pass the time.
It is a nice bike and a good deal for the money — I have seen similar bikes elsewhere for a lot more, I did a lot of research before I bought this bike and it seemed to be the best for my budget and my back. Overall I am very satisfied with this purchase.
This was easy to put together and perfect for a small exercise bike. It’s sturdy and comfortable to use. Counts calories and distance. I have osteoporosis, and my physician advised me to get a recumbent bike. I was attracted to the looks of this one, as well as the very reasonable price. Good buy.
I am using the bike, and I can tell it helps my joints, has helped me lose weight by burning calories, and has is improving my cardiovascular system. Peddles smooth and quiet making it nice to ride and watch television. Good back support and seat is comfortable. Also seems easy on knees with arthritis. I would recommend this bike to anyone.
The Velocity Exercise Magnetic Recumbent Bike is comfortable, has all the necessary information in the middle of the handlebars, and is quite comfortable. I had not done any really weight bearing exercise for years, but this was so interesting to use and I felt so much better after each “ride.” I started out at just 2 minutes a session, and in a short time I am now up to 10 minutes.
This Velocity Exercise Magnetic Recumbent Bike is a good option to keep the physical standing of your body. Exactly what the heart Dr ordered to use. Recumbent cycling offers the same cardio benefits of upright cycling, but relieves stress on the neck, shoulders and back. It is easy to set up and easy to move. Only would have like it better if you had sent directions on time per day to use it and calories burned.
I was skeptical to buy this bike based on other reviews. My husband was able to assemble it easily and no parts were damaged or missing. Love all the features, distance, calories burned, speed, even heart rate. Only part that needs improvement would be the seat. It is tilted back a little too far back and my tailbone gets a little tingly after 20 minutes or so.
This is a very sturdy exercise machine. It was easy explanatory directions to put together the Velocity Exercise Magnetic Recumbent Bike. Although the Bike seat could have a better one, because I go for 1 hours on it without any discomfort.
I can also reach the Pedals I am 5’1 height. I am starting to see a real change in my shape and my clothes are fitting a little bit better. The Low setting on it is enough and I often just keep it on their. Within an hour I am sweating up a storm. The batteries that it uses is AAA 1.2v which are the small ones, I use the 15 min charge Duracell in the compartment for the Time clock.
If you are looking for a beginner recumbent bike then this is a great deal. It got to me fast and in good condition. Assembly did not take too long; I’m a visual person so it helped seeing the picture of where each piece went vs. reading a sentence to and looking at loose parts. It’s easy to use for the whole family and will be a great way to get up into exercising.
