There are some people who swear by recumbent bikes, while others prefer to ride traditional, upright exercise bikes. With the introduction of the Stamina 7200, though, there finally appears to be a bike that will unite both camps. They call this model the “Fusion” because it is a hybrid of the best features of an upright bike along with the best features of a recumbent bike. The end result is a mid-level, home exercise bike that’s sure to be put to good use as part of any home exercise regimen.
Customized Riding Experience
Some at-home exercise bikes leave a bit to be desired when it comes to customizing your riding experience. Many models seem to be built for smaller riders, and offer little in the way of easy adjustments for people with longer legs. This recumbent bike is designed to offer comfortable riding for people of all sizes. The seat is simple to adjust, so you can bring it in closer if you have shorter legs, or extend it out a bit, if you are a taller rider. The end result of this easy to adjust seat is a bike that the whole family can enjoy using.
