The Velocity Fitness Magnetic Recumbent Bike gets top marks from many of its users. This sturdy machine offers a challenging and smooth workout and lets you know how you’re doing via a large LCD display that tracks time, distance, pulse rate, the speed you’re doing and the amount of calories you’ve burned.
The Velocity Recumbent Bike is extremely well made. It features a three piece axle/crank and industrial quality double sealed steel bearings that perform without a hitch at every level of resistance. It’s also easy to move around when you’re done because a front transport wheel is included.
The Velocity Recumbent bike has an extruded aluminum sliding beam and stationary handlebars. The weighted pedals also feature comfortable foot straps. It measures 59” x 36.2” x 25.2” so it doesn’t take up a great deal of space and can be easily stored away after use.

Velocity Fitness Magnetic Recumbent Bike User Review
This is truly an outstanding bike for people looking for a good quality recumbent bike if you don’t need a lot of the bells and whistles that similar bikes have. This one costs a third of what some of those do, and the workout is just as good.
I managed to assemble the Velocity Fitness Bike in under an hour and I’m no engineer. The instructions are not too clear but if you take your time and lay everything out logically it’s pretty easy.
You get a heart and pulse monitor and you can see the speed you’re going , the time you’ve taken and the distance you’ve traveled. It has a screw type resistance system instead of the electronic systems you’ll find on far more expensive bikes. As far as I’m concerned it’s something less to go wrong. All you have to do is just reach down and turn the knob, no big deal.
What I really like about the Velocity is the incredibly smooth pedaling action. With other machines I’ve used I’ve come away with aching knees because the action has been iffy. Weighing in at about 90 pounds and having a front wheel means even my wife can maneuver it into a corner after using it.
We both find it very comfortable and it stays put even when you’re at full throttle
The Velocity Fitness Magnetic Recumbent Bike is an excellent deal and offers a great cardio workout on a well-built machine.
