The reason for not recommending this bike is simple. There comes a point where you should NOT even consider investing in exercise equipment, and that level is the $250 dollar mark for exercise bikes.
The Stamina 4755 doesn’t offer any features that make an exercise bike worthwhile. There’s no heart rate monitor, no built-in workouts and a crappy display console.
To top it off, the resistance on this bike is manual, so it’s a real pain in the neck to make any kind of meaningful adjustment to it.
If you’re tight on cash and can’t afford a god recumbent bike like the Schwinn Exercise Bikes, do yourself a favor and save your money until that day comes.
