I'll be honest, the main reason I was attracted to this machine was its price. After reading the many reviews on this...and other machines.. I decided to purchase it. You can't always go on the experiences of others. I am glad. It took me a lot longer to put togather...Approx 4 hours. The directions were confusing, but the pics and common sense helped. But to be fair, it was around midnight that I began assembling. I had some trouble putting the seat into the base because it was so fitted. But I guess thats a good thing. I almost gave up..but after getting some rest and wiggling the seat in place, it gave. I've had this for about a week now and I try and get about 30 mins a day.. i'm not the lightest person in the world so lets say i was surprised it's still solid. It's a bit loud, but i can still hear any tv or music playing on normal-high volume. All in all, my husband and I are quite satisfied with this product. Here's to hoping it stays that way.
This bike came with everything needed to put it together, even the tools. It took only about an hour to put together. It is easier to put together with 2 people. Very sturdy and easy to ride. I am a heavy lady and I like that it it is easy on my joints and back. I am looking forward to sweating these pounds away on this machine. When I need another piece of exercise equipment I will be purchasing it from Wal Mart as well.
I wanted something easy to use, that I would want to do every night, and I found it!
This is smooth, easy on the body, and leaves no excuses to not do a nightly workout.
I would highly recommend this, especially if you are needing a low impact workout.
Got this at my local store after reading reviews online. First of all, I put it together myself, a little time-consuming, but not all that difficult. People who said that things were rubbing on the main body of the bike obviously put the bars that connect the handlebars to the pedals on backwards, easy to do. there is nothing wrong with this bike, it is a fan type bike, so you have to expect it not to be whisper quiet, but it's not distracting or overly loud. The calorie counter is a little basic, but so what? It's an $87 bike, but even for the low price, you get more than what you pay for! I love it!!
I am absolutely in love with this bike. It was extremely easy to put together, very cheap, and makes and awesome workout! I am a very large woman.. 5'10, 270 lbs.. and this product holds me very well. I was a little nervous because of the 250 weight limit, but the bike is very durable. Very low impact and you can't even tell you're getting a good work out! I wasn't sure if I would feel the effect of the moving handle bars, but they more than serve their purpose. They make a tremendous difference when it comes to getting a good cardio work out and plus they build strength. Throw on some work out music and ride the bike to the beat, and it makes for a very fun workout! Great for bad knees and ankles! I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BIKE and would suggest it to everyone I know and everyone reading this review!
But just as a warning in case you purchase the bike, when you read the manual and go over the list of all the hardware, remember that some of the pieces are already attached, so don't be like me and get over-eager about putting the bike together and not read the part that says something like "some of the parts may already be attached!" LOL
I recently purchased this bike a month ago. First thing was I thought I was missing some screws/bolts when actually they were already attached to the parts. Apparently Customer Service wasn't aware of this because they sent out new parts. I started putting it together with what I had and that's where I found that all items were indeed in box. Didn't take long to put it together for a single woman. I began using the bike and felt the results in my arms, legs, shoulders and mid area. It definitely gives you a full workout. I started out only being able to stay on for 8 minutes. I just made it to 15 minutes. Worth the money to me.
I was looking for a bike that would fit into my apt nicely and this one does. It took about 2 hours to put together. I did have a problems with the handlebars, but that is fixed now. I have a bad back with numbness in my right leg and this helps with the circulation. It comes in a nice small box and fit into my car with ease.
I bought this bike just over two weeks ago and used it faithfully for 2+ miles every day, until yesterday when the pedal literally fell off while I was using it. The weight limit on this bike is 250 lbs and I'm over that, so please be mindful of that when you get/use this bike. Other than that I enjoyed using it and lost 5 pounds while I had it! Oh, and I brought it back to the store I bought it from and they were super nice and refunded my money, so now I'm on the hunt for a sturdier bike with a higher weight limit!
I put the Stamina 955 stationary bike together on 1/14/08 in about 1 1/2 hours and began using it on 1/15/08. The only trouble I had putting it together was with the monitor. I couldn't get it on correctly. However, it was late at night. My wife looked at it the next morning and slipped it right on. The only problem it has is that it is very loud. However, I turn the closed caption devise on the TV and so it is really no problem. I ride it two or three times a day usually after meals and as a result my blood sugar is starting to line out. As a matter of fact it is the first time since I was diagnosed a diabetic that my blood sugar has been in spec. Since I am a diabetic this is the main reason I purchased the bike. I never had this kind of success with the treadmill. I am very satisficed with this product.
This product is a Great buy for the money, easy to put together, basic -gets the job done. Why spend a lot of maney if you don't have to? You will break a sweat!
As with all manuals, this one said to verify all the parts were there. There was one small bag with some screws and bolts in it that wasn't anything near what you should have, so I emailed them for the missing ones. I decided to start putting it together with what I had and that is when I discovered that most of the missing pieces were attached to the parts they went to. I was able to put the whole thing together that day. It would have been far less frustrating if they made mention of this fact on the same page they told you to make sure you had all the nuts and bolts. The bike is easy to ride and really does work. It got my heart rate up in just a couple of minutes and that was at the lowest resistance. After only 2 weeks, my legs are considerably stronger and I find I have a far easier time getting back up from the floor if I need to get down there. Yes, I am older than most of the world and needed help getting back up, but I can do it by myself now. That is a big deal at my age. I only ride for 5-10 minutes once a day, but I am still building stamina.
This is the second purchase of the Stamina Air Resistance Upright Bike. The first bike was used every day for an hour each for my wife and I. The bike cost less than $100.00 and lasted three years. Heavy use for an inexpensive bike. The tension cable finally broke and it was less expensive to purchase a new bike than repair the old one. The bike gives you a good workout and fits easily into a small apartment. Assembly could use color coded nuts and bolts much like electronic products but all in all assembly was not difficult. The bike is a good value and well worth the price. If the price is kept competitive, in three years I'll purchase another.
went together with no problem and i use it everyday i am home and enjoy my time on it would suggest anyone to buy it with confidience
This bike is well worth the money.
A very good value.
Very reasonable price.
My family uses it daily.
I have used this bike for about two weeks now. I am extremely pleased with it. In fact after the first week I can already feel a difference in my legs. I highly recommend this bike and the price was great.
Seriously, the bike is great for the money. I was looking for something like an Airdyne but much less expensive and I found it! I would recommend this bike to anyone looking for a great workout.
I bought this bike put it together didnt even get ten miles on it when the chain come off, took the cover off put the chain back on made sure the sprockets was lined up right put it back together rode about two miles and it came off again. spend a little more and get a good product.
I have had one of these for several years. Love it. Ordered this one for my sister-in-law because she wanted one like mine. Good in house workout. Sturdy. Like the fact that I know how long I have been on it, how "far" I have traveled, and seeing the calories that I am burning helps give me an incentive to keep on with my workout.
This is absolutely the most wonderful product I have found for old people (I am 76 yrs. old) to get exercise. For years, I walked 2 miles a day, but this summer has been brutal for people with COPD and I could no longer walk. My doctor suggested a gym membership...it was too crowded, so I found this bike on the website. I LOVE, LOVE it!
The bike is great, sturdy not flimsy, minimum bells and whistles....but enough to adjust resistance, and see how fast/far your going. Gives a decent light aerobic workout. Seat is oversized and comfortable. Noise level is not too bad. I added a padded mat under it and can hear TV at normal volume.
Assembly took about an hour, (I am pretty good at putting things together) all hardware and tools were included and labeled, and in my opinion very clear, step by step directions.
