Stamina 1350 Magnetic Resistance Recumbent Bike

Stamina 1350Is it really possible to find good home workout equipment at a reasonable price? This was the question we were asking ourselves when we stumbled upon the Stamina 1350. The Stamina company has built a reputation for making some very nice home workout equipment, but we wanted to see how this entry-level recumbent bike measured up. After digging into all the available information for this model, we put our findings for you here in this review.

Smooth Performance

With the low price that the Stamina 1350 is currently selling for, we didn’t expect it to offer smooth resistance, like the higher-end recumbent bikes do. To our surprise, though, this recumbent bike as a sturdy, magnetic flywheel that offers plenty of smooth, magnetic resistance.

Every time a rider pedals, the motion is smooth and free of the jerking and stopping that you would typically get from bikes in this price range. It’s not often that lower priced exercise bikes will offer such smooth, easy to adjust resistance levels, so we had to give this bike bonus points for doing so.
