Stamina 1350 Magnetic Resistance Recumbent Bike Review

Stamina 1350The Stamina 1350 offers a low impact style aerobic workout that will help users increase their metabolism rates without damaging their joints. It effectively targets the hips, thighs, and buttocks areas, making this recumbent bike an excellent choice for women everywhere.

It is also a great machine for those who are suffering from injury. The semi-recumbent position allows users to exercise pain-free compared to other traditional bikes where users are hunched over the handlebars while riding.

Features

The bike features an upholstered vinyl seat that is designed to seat comfortably any user. There are multiple seat positions to choose from as well as an adjustable handrail for added support. There are oversized, weighted foot pedals that will keep feet secure while pedaling. Resistance can be adjusted through a tension knob for changes in intensity levels.

The large display monitor makes reading workout results easy. The display comes with a scan mode that will help users keep track of progress without having to push any buttons while working out. A one-button control panel helps users keep track of workout speed, distance, time, and the amount of calories burned.

The machine runs quietly and can be rolled away for easy storage. The bike also comes with a one year manufacturer’s warranty on the frame and 3 months on wear parts. Maximum user weight for the machine is 250 lbs.

Cons

One issue users report having with the machine is a possible defect in the display monitor. This defect appears when the monitor stops working when a user either starts or stops pedaling. It is caused by a magnetic pickup that moves too far away from the pulley magnet during use. The problem could easily be solved if the manufacturer engineered the product to have the sensor mounted closer to the pulley with better materials.

The problem can be fixed without having to send it back to the manufacturer if users are willing to spend a little time to do it themselves. Users who face this problem can fix the issue themselves by spending around $5 by purchasing an additional screw and heavier plastic mounting to reposition the sensor. This can be one by opening up the display monitor and reattaching the sensor up higher toward the pulley.
