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.
We have had our bike about a month now and really like it. We had a treadmill and replaced it with this and it was a great move for our home. It is a great size and fits anywhere. Very quiet which we needed as we exercise at night and have small children that are sleeping. We did have a small issue with the panel not recognizing the bike was in use so it wouldn't track anything but one quick phone call to customer service and it was easily fixed and no other issues. They were very kind and helpful. There is quite a large space where your lower back sits and it would be nice if you could adjust the back rest to remedy this but it doesn't hinder us in any way. I am 5'11" and my husband is 6'1" and we have no problem getting a good fit when riding. Great purchase!
I bought this magnetic exercise bike instead of many other brands because it has a very low profile. The screen is very low and doesn't block my vision, so I can watch a movie or tv show while I'm biking and the whole bike is low enough that it can stay in the middle of my living room all the time. I haven't figured out how to make the computer stay on one screen yet, but I hope I can. I want to stay on either my time or my heart rate rather than scan through a bunch of screens that I am not interested in seeing. The seat was a bit too far forward for me, which I'd read in other reviews. In order to fix that, I put it in the desired position, marked the holes and used some short wood screws to reposition it. Hopefully the adjustment will last. I kept the factory bolts in the bottom of the seat, so I can put it back if the wood screws come out, but the bike is much more comfortable with the seat positioned further back allowing the seatback to give proper lumbar support. In future iterations, it would be nice if there were multiple bolt-holes so customers could reposition the seat to their liking, even if they can't adjust it in a moment. [To be clear, the entire chair including the seatback can be moved forward or back, but the seat and seatback are fixed relative to each other.]
For the past 14 years, I have been purchasing the Stamina Magnetic Upright 5325 Exercise Bike on a yearly basis (2002-2016). The bike is fantastic and works really well. It runs very smooth and quiet, has an adjustment for how easy or hard the resistance is, and a monitor to calculate distance, calories, etc. I wouldn't have purchased this bike over and over again for 14 years consecutively if I didn't like the product. It's pretty easy to put together and its very sturdy and comfortable to ride on. I can't say enough good things about the bike, and plan to purchase more in the future as I have been doing since 2002! Thank you Stamina for a wonderful product!
