About Recumbent Exercise Bikes
Despite the competition from trendy new fitness inventions, exercise bikes continue to be popular options for home exercise. They offer the same aerobic benefits of riding a bicycle at any time, in any weather, without leaving the comfort and safety of home. Exercise bikes don't take up much space, require little or no balance or coordination, and can provide an effective workout for all levels of users, from beginners to serious competitors. While the same could be said for a number of other types of home fitness equipment, the exercise bike is one of the few that allows you to watch television or read a magazine while you work out.
The term recumbent literally means "lying down." Exercising in a recumbent or reclining position allows the user to have full ergonomic back support, without causing strain on the arms, neck and shoulders, all of which can be common effects of using an upright bicycle. For many people, having convenient access to quality exercise equipment is critical to sticking with a long-term exercise program.

Did some research and decided that for the price the Stamina 4545 sounded like it will fit our needs. Have had very good experience when ordering from Amazon in the past and they had it at good price and free shipping. So placed an order. It arrived a day before the suggested delivery date. The package arrived in very good condition. Had no problems assembling it. Instructions clear and well written. No missing parts and all parts and screws fit well. Did not have anything falling out or apart as reported in other reviews. Computer and wheel resitance work as advertised. It is well built sturdy and stable. Will agree, tools included not worth a flip. Did not even try to use them.
Have ridden it two days in a row. About 1 hour and 45 minutes each day, by the computer 20 miles each day. (DVD and TV a must accesory for me.) Everything functioned as advertised. Only complaint and reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the seat. My rear end hung over the back of the seat. Got saddle sore where butt hung over the edge of seat. Ok, may not be a problem if one is only riding 1/2 hr or so.
My fix was to take the seat off bike. Drilled holes in the bottom of seat 1 1/4 inches in front of the orginal screw holes. I put threaded inserts into new holes and remounted the seat. That moved the seat to the rear of the machine by 1 1/4 inch. Now my rear end doesn't hang over the back of the seat. Road it a little after the modification and seems much better. In addition, leg movement is less hindered by the front of the seat.
Bottom line, for the money and what my plans for it are it is a good value. If this were my main form of exercise would probably invest in machine with more features to keep me motivated. However, would just be buying more computing power. Basic machine is solid. Wife has not been on it yet so can't tell about her experience with it.
