Stamina is a company that has been producing exercise products since about 1987. Their recumbent bikes have a wide price range, going from around $100 up to as much as $1,000. So while they offer premium bikes for more demanding exercise routines, they also cater to the more budget-oriented market with their sub-$200 pricing on some models.
Although the brand has been around for a while, they have not been around as long as other exercise bike companies such as Schwinn, but they nonetheless produce nice-looking recumbent bikes that work exactly as advertised.
As mentioned, the biggest plus of Stamina is that some of their products are very inexpensive, allowing for a wider range of people to start doing cardio workouts. Their products also tend to be pretty straightforward; some of them may not offer a whole lot of bells and whistles, but this is the reason that they can keep the costs down so much.
But of course, the straightforward nature of many of their products can be considered a downside by some people. The technology that their products lack means that you won’t have much in the way of assisted workout routines, finer-grained resistance levels, and so on. Overall it’s not a huge deal since the point is to exercise, but it’s something to consider.
The Stamina 1350 was an excellent buy. The bike was easy to put together and it hardly takes up space in my small apartment. It is very quiet and easy to use. I usually move it to my living room to watch TV while working out. The seat is comfortable and reclined and is easily adjustable even for a small framed person and it has broad pedals. The monitor is simple and no nonsense. It displays everything I want in a touch of a button- speed, distance, time, and calories burned. This is a simple workout machine for people who do not want gym memberships and live in small apartments.[Read Full Review]
