InTone Key Specs:
You don't have to be an expert to figure out that the Stamina InTone Folding Cycle Pro is not a high-end bike. It is designed for occasional home use. With the weight of only 42 pounds, this semi-recumbent bike accommodates users up to 250 pounds. When I first saw this bike, I thought: "another weak and cheap bike designed for impulsive buyers at mass merchandising stores". I had no desire to even test it and publish a review. I apologize to the manufacturer (and to our readers) for these words, but I am here to seek honest opinion about each model.
Stamina InTone Folding Bike Review
Well, when I finally got a chance to see this model in action, I was a little surprised. Although it seems too weak, it's pretty sturdy and will not fall apart when you sit on it and start cycling. Even vice versa, if you exercise moderately you will have smooth and relaxing ride. Honestly, this bike is definitely not for fitness enthusiasts who exercise on a regular basis, 7 days a week. The Stamina InTone is a light home semi-recumbent cycle designed to be folded and stored somewhere in the closet, and to be used for about 20 minutes 2-3 times a week. This is a great exercise bike for that purpose.
With a footprint of just 40" x 25", the Folding Cycle Pro fits in almost any workout area. Folding design and wheels allow for convenient storage and easy portability. When folded, the footprint is only 17" x 25".
The Stamina InTone Folding bike is equipped with a simple LCD monitor which tracks your workout time, speed, distance and calories burned. A resistance level is adjustable through the tension knob. Simply turn the knob to one side or the other to increase or decrease resistance level.
Drawbacks: Although the Stamina InTone Semi-Recumbent bike comes with a 3-year warranty on frame, parts are covered by poor 90-day warranty. But for such a budget price you can't expect anything better.
Conclusion: Overall, I have mixed feelings about this cycle. Given that it has been designed for a target audience that needs to have a light folding exerciser for occasional workouts, it’s worth the money.
