Stamina Recumbent Exercise Bike

The Stamina recumbent exercise bikes have been quite popular for some time. So why am I not recommending the Stamina exercise bike?

There is a point at which it makes sense not to spend your money on exercise equipment.

That price point for exercise bikes is around $250. When you drop below this level of spending you're not getting any of the features that make buying an exercise bike worth while.

The Stamina Recumbent exercise bike falls into this category. It lacks heart rate monitoring, preprogrammed workouts, a decent display console and an easily adjustable seat.

If you're shopping in this price range I'm assuming that you're a relative newcomer to the exercise bike industry and will appreciate me being as honest as possible with you.

The Stamina exercise bikes should not be at the top of your list.

If you're really strapped for cash and just can't see yourself spending more than $200, I have a suggestion for you.

You should check out the Gazelle Freestyle Elliptical trainer. I think you'll get a lot more enjoyment from it, and you'll end up using it more than a cheap exercise bike.

If you can stomach investing about $100 dollars more, take a close look at the Proform 970 Crosstrainer as a good alternative.
