Stamina Pro 15-5300 Exercise Bike Quick Stats and Features
The Stamina Pro 15-5300 upright exercise bike uses silent magnetic resistance for a very smooth and silent exercise workout. A quiet exercise bike is great if you want to listen to music or watch TV. However, unlike the style of exercise bike with a big fan at the front for resistance (such as the Schwinn Airdyne), you will need a fan to keep cool.
You get eight tension points to choose from depending on how hard you want to train.
To provide variety for your training, you can choose between the following pre-programmed workouts:
The LCD display provides you with constant workout statistics such as current speed, calories burned, distance travelled and time to get there.
You also get a heart rate monitor that is built into the handlebars so you can monitor your workout intensity and prevent overtraining.
Finally, the seat is easily adjustable (handy if amore than 1 person is training on the exercise bike) and it is wider than the average seat to provide for a more comfortable ride for all the hours you are going to be on the Stamina Pro 15-5300 exercise bike…. Right?
The Stamina Pro 15-5300 upright exercise bike is 30.5 inches by 21 inches by 53 inches and weight 67 pounds.
Below are some user reviews that I have found and included here so you dont have to search so many sites for a good range of reviews. The main source I have found for good quality exercise bike reviews by users is amazon, but there are other good reviews which I will summarise and included here to help you make the best choice for what you are looking for in an exercise bike.
The reviewer of the Stamina Pro 15-5300 is quite happy with this exercise bike, but there are a few issues.
These include an uncomfortable seat. Also, the user found that if you hop off the exercise bike for a minute or two, the calories burned reading disappears. A related problem is if you move your hands off the heart rate sensor for too long, it takes a long time to establish the correct reading again.
The exercise bike has picked up a strange noise, which sometimes goes away.
This exercise bike has started depositing small bits of rubber under the machine – it appeared to be coming from a rubber belt hidden from view underneath the guard.
Finally, the shell which is made of plastic isn’t very strong.
The goods points of the Stramina Pro 15-4300 was easy assembly. It comes mostly pre-assembled making it relatively straight forward. The levels and range of resistance were also assessed as very good. In summary, the person reviewing the Stamina Pro 15-5300 said that for the money, it is pretty good value as a start up bike.
This reviwer made the point that another reviewer had stated that the display monitor kept changing and scanning all the workout statistics – this reviewer offered advice – the mode button on the display console will let you select any workout reading you want – or it will let you scan all readings – the mode button is the answer, if you are having this problem with the Stamina Pro 15-5300.
