stamina intone folding recumbent bike, Model 15-0201
on June 18, 2012
I liked the first model of stamina recumbent bike I purchased in 2009 and rode it for over 7000 miles. I was always having trouble with lots of noise coming from the main bearing in the magnetic wheel and had to replace it twice. I did get my money's worth out it, so decided to purchase the newer model which so far has been very quiet. It has a nicer looking body with the smooth black instead of the dull gray finish. Since purchasing it on May 24th, 2012, I have ridden it for 52 hours (approx. 500 miles) and it is still running quietly. The computer works well in alternately giving the time, distance, mph and approximate calories burned. I get off the bike perspiring every time, so I'm getting a good workout. I place a floor fan next to me while riding to keep cool. I'll be keeping track to see how long the parts last, such as the main bearing and the belt.
