Stamina Airgometer Exercise Bike
Disappointment after six weeks
I liked the price, design, comfortable seat and ease of use UNTIL repairs had to be made two weeks after I got it due to a clanking noise, and then a month later when the mechanical part between the pedals broke. This has had normal residential use of no more than seven miles a day. I actually had enjoyed working out.
To top it off there is a warning not found on other exercise bikes which says," This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm." When I called Stamina customer service with my concern, they passed it off and would not tell me what the chemical was or where it was located on the bike.
Be very wary when shopping for exercise equipment, ask a lot of questions, and also ask to look at the owner's manual to see what the warnings are, so that your investment will be one that you can enjoy for years.
Unfortunately I have had to learn the hard way.
FYI I didn't buy this at Dick's Sporting Goods.
