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.

I had a small Tunturi upright bike nearly 30 years ago but now felt that the semi-recumbent form of the Stamina In-Tone would suit me better at this age, and it does. Yes this is a "semi-recumbent" and fits about halfway between an upright and a full recumbent. I like this aspect of the design very much.
The unit is well built (better than I expected) goes together easily in a half hour ("tools" included) and while the seat is harder than I'd like, I just throw a towel over it and it's fine.
A terrific value and a great alternative to big, expensive recumbent bikes.
UPDATE July 2008, I moved up to a much larger, more expensive, heavier-duty Ironman Charger (hey it was in the Gold Box!)
The Stamina is fine, but it is best if you really need the space savings or dollar savings. HTH
Oh- the seat could be more comfortable, and it's not great for really tall people (my legs are 32" long), but I too used a pillow to 1) make the seat more comfy and 2) elevate myself so my legs could stretch out a bit more.
After I've used it a while, I'll get back to you with an update.
Last month, it broke. I disassembled it and found a busted belt. I contacted Stamina (StaminaProducts.com) and they told me that they would be happy to send out a replacement belt, and that for $13.99 it would be in my hands in 7-13 days. I happily paid the bill and waited, and waited... When I called to find out what was going on (and why they hadn't responded to my email from 4 days previous), I was told that they no longer had any parts for that model. I asked about why I was able to order a replacement part last month, and was told that they probably had the part then, but they don't now. Eventually I was provided with a refund and a better luck next time.
I feel like I got a good value for my money on the bike, but my interaction with Stamina Products left me displeased.
tl;dr version: Works great, but when it breaks Stamina does not have any replacement parts available.
After it was assembled I hopped on, expecting a lot of noise from something that was so cheap. Nope, this is quiet. I like this bike! Yes, the seat does have a wobble when you peddle faster; it is not as sturdy as one of those big monsters that cost hundreds of dollars. But the pedal action is smooth, and the electronics work even when you pedal backward.
I bought this specifically for my game room. I wanted something to sit on while watching television in the evenings instead of just vegging. This bike fits the bill perfectly. When I'm done it folds up compactly and securely - there is a pin which you insert to hold it folded (unlike my beloved Gazelle, which pinches my fingers every time) - then rolls into the closet.
You could get a better recumbent bike - no question. But you're not going to touch one for only $139.00. This is a great deal.
