Rated 3 out of 5Â by pjh42 Not as good as it might have been.
First of all, Stamina Products has EXCELLENT customer service.
The bike has some deficiencies (for me):
1. The screws are not standard so you cannot use a standard Phillips-head screwdriver. Makes assembly awkward in some places.
2. The angle of the sensor wire is critical to the meter reading. This is not pointed out in the manual. The wire is not held firm along its length.
3. There are not enough magnets on the flywheel, so the speed reading is "off" and jerky if you changed your pedaling rate.
Other than those, it's fine. Comfortable. Affordable. Seems otherwise well made. But the engineering decisions I mentioned make me wonder if something will go wrong as it ages.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by GEORGIE Totally Satisfied!
We purchased this bike for a family of 3 adults, one of which has special needs. It was fine to put together (took 1 1/2 hours). We needed to drill an extra hole for our person of short stature and this was easy. We are all satisfied with the bike. Meeting all expectations.

Still shocked that we could buy this outfit for under 200.00 !
Impressive design that takes minimal space and is easily moved out of the living room when we have guests. Assembly was quick and simple and quality of materials and hardware exceeded our expectations. My wife and I have not skipped a day on this the bike since we got it. Both of us have lowered our blood pressure and lost a few pounds in the first month. Usually ride approximately 3 miles. p/ day. I appreciate having a way to get good cardio workout without impact on my knees..
Rated 5 out of 5Â by RAD32FORD Awesome Recumbent Bike
I was looking for a small Recumbent Bike for my apartment. I checked reviews on about 20 different Recumbent Bikes and found both positive & negative on all of them. The best way to pick one is to actually try it of course and this model was on the floor and was exactly what I was looking for. Simple to assemble. The computer is basic but has exactly what I needed. I am 5'7" and it fits me perfectly and it also adjusts for my daughter who is 5'. The price was very reasonable. I would recommend this bike to anyone. I have used it for 2 weeks/1 hour each day and have already lost 6 pounds. Works great in front of the TV and gets me off the couch for one hour each day. I have also added dumb bells to my workout while I am riding. At age 55 this bike is exactly what I needed to help me lose weight.
