Cycling improves your cardiovascular health, boosts the functioning of the heart and blood vessels, and decreases your risk of heart disease. Now you can enjoy all the benefits of cycling without spending a ton of money with the affordable InStride XL cycle from Stamina Products. Unlike most exercise bikes, the InStride XL cycle doesn't come with a seat. Instead, you sit in a standard dining room chair or lie on the floor, then insert your feet into the sturdy rubber straps. Once you're in, you can pedal in forward or reverse motion, with an adjustable tension knob that lets you vary your intensity and an electronic monitor that times your workouts. As an alternative, you can even rest the InStride XL on a table and pedal with your hands to experience a full-range upper body workout.
Improving your cardiovascular health isn't the only benefit of cycling, of course. It also increases HDL (good cholesterol), reduces the amount of triglycerides in the blood, and helps lower blood pressure. And thanks to the dual-use pedals, you can improve your muscle strength in your legs, arms, shoulders, and back, depending on the configuration you choose. Other cycling benefits include increased flexibility without stressing the joints, improved digestion, better lung function, and a higher metabolism.
The InStride XL cycle, which includes non-slip rubber feet, measures 19 by 12.25 by 15.25 inches (W x H x D) and weighs 9 pounds.

good deal This works out great for me, I can read, watch TV,or just look out the window while I exercise. I checked all around so I know the price is right so it's a good deal for me. My Brother saw it and ordered one right away....more info

Works Great!! I have had a couple of these but this is the first one that I have liked and found easy to use. I was able to put it together in about two minutes. I use it while watching TV or even when I am reading. The only thing I would change about it are the rubber feet, they tend to turn a little but it's not a big problem. Well worth the price. ...more info

Stamina cycle rating I purchased the Stamina InStride Cycle for my mother-in-law as she is elderly and gets no exercise and is loosing all mobility funtions due to lack of movement. The device allows her to exercise with her hands / arms and legs at an easy pace and it is rugged enough that if it gets abused, it will not hurt its funtion....more info

Stamina Cycle Review The product was not all that I had hoped. I had hoped that it was a stand-up device. I really couldn't tell by looking at it online. Additionally, the top piece, the gear, was put on irregularly, i.e., the right side drags the floor. Disappointing, to say the least....more info
Enjoying Exercise! This product is so great.....I have been raving about it to everyone I know. While attempting to survive this unending Northeast winter, this is a great way to get great cardio without trudging to the gym! This is an excellant product for the money, and a person of any age will find this easy to use....more info
Stationary bicycle We are very pleased with this. I purchased it for my husband who is diabetic and not able to tolerate a ride-on stationary bike....more info
space saving and functional I had back problems and my doctor recommended I get something like this (to be clear, he didn't recommend this brand).
A stationary bike would take up too much room in my apartment, but this is perfect, it hides easily beside the sofa, and in conveniently at hand when you need it. I like that you can also put it on the table and use it for arms as well as legs.
Also - my 10 yo put it together, so it's very easy to assemble!
I would recommend it. ...more info
Highly recommended I bought the InStride Cycle XL for my 80 year old mother who has undergone two knee replacements - this particular unit was highly recommended by her physical therapist - he was right - it is exactly what she needs to keep up with daily exercise and it is well made, easily moved from place to place and easy to store - - not too expensive either - -- I recommend it to anyone who needs this type of leg exercise....more info
Great Value! I purchased this item for my 87 year old mother. It was recommended by her physical therapist following a fall. She uses it for a half hour every day. ...more info
Great for rehab Purchased this item for my mother-in-law. She has muscle weekness and heart problems and has been in and out of the hospital and rehab. She was depressed that she was still having trouble walking and couldn't get to the gym or climb up on an exercise bike at 72. I saw this item and thought what could it hurt. She loves it! She stated that it is so easy to use and she said that she feels stronger already. When I saw her (2) weeks later, she wasn't using her cane as much. You can also place it on a table and use your arms, which is the same exercise they had her doing in rehab. ...more info
Exercising despite illness As I suffer from a neurological disease that affects my motor function, I am not able to do much in the way of exercise. For this reason, I ordered this product. I find it quite useful. Although I know that I am not burning nearly as many calories per unit of time as I would on our elliptical machine, I am moving! I have not experienced much noise with my unit as some others have complained and am easily able to have a conversation or watch T.V. while I am cycling. I have noted that this product is easiest to use at a slight angle or semi-reclining position i.e. it is not easy to do while sitting upright at a computer, but easier while lounging back in an easy chair or on a couch. Overall, I am glad that I purchased this product. I have read that Mayo Clinic studies have shown that this type of mild exercise done frequently is even more effective than strenuous exercise done in small amounts. ...more info
Excellent I purchased this for my father (88) based on the recommendation of his rheumatologist. Father says that it has greatly relieved the pain in his meniscus shattered knees. He now uses it for 20 minutes at a time, twice a day....more info
great fast, free delivery. Received as expected. Would def. buy from this seller again....more info
Good value. I purchased this product as a replacement for the basic pedal exerciser model, which broke after about a year of use. This is much sturdier than the old one. A great benefit is that it slides far less on my hardwood floor. The timer is pretty cheap and nothing fancy, but, let's face it, if this is your primary piece of exercise equipment, that is exactly what you need. The size is also quite convenient for hiding it away when it's not in use.
I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to be able to do some exercise while watching TV, but doesn't want to put the time and money into getting more complex exercise equipment for their living room. ...more info
Stamina InStride Cycle Stamina 15-0120 InStride Cycle XL I received my order in a timely fashion. I love this cycle and have gained stamina in the short time of using it....more info
Nice Supplemental Piece of Exercise Equipment Next to my treadmill I wanted something that flexed/worked my knees a bit -- like a bicycle would, without having to commit to a full stationary bike. Using this unit does not feel like full-on cycling because the range of motion just isn't wide enough, but it does the trick and is exactly what I was looking for and expected, and the price is right. Unless you're completely sedentary I can't imagine you'd ever work up a sweat or breathe too hard, but it will slightly increase your heart rate and circulation, and you can definitely feel it in your calves and thighs after just a few minutes of pedaling. On a linoleum, tile or coated wood floor -- anything with some "tack" -- the unit does not move around at all, but on slick carpeting or bare wood floors expect movement. Unless you have a high working surface or are of short stature, I can't imagine pedaling on this under a desk. It took all of 10 minutes to assemble (no tools needed), functions quietly and smoothly, and stores easily. I haven't used it to work arms/shoulders as I have free weights and exercise bands for such things, but can imagine it would be good for the sedentary/elderly; there's also a two-sided flyer included that offers suggested routines. I knocked off a star because of a few claims. It won't provide a serious cardiovascular workout, nor is it a major calorie-burner. And though perfectly functional, the "electric progress monitor" is merely a timer of stopwatch variety and not connected to the unit in any way but for display. But overall this unit is a nice supplement to other exercise equipment when space is at a premium....more info
Love my InStride Cycle XL After following the advise for a couple of weeks of a home health physical therapist who did not want me to use this item, my Physician's Assistant told me it was an excellent tool to help me recover from double knee replacement surgery. I can tell a huge difference in the flexibility of my knees after only three days of use, and can now drive my pickup which has a manual transmission. I highly recommend this product....more info
good Good for the price. Does what i wanted and expected. It does get warm when used and you have to let it cool down to move it. Easy to use, and store in a small living area. ...more info
Good office cycle I got this product for my office. I like it because I can hide it under my quest chair and it is out of the way. I mostly use it while I sit in my office, during a teleconference, or while reviewing a document. It is very useful for small space.
Due to the fact that it is a small cycle, the resistance control is not very good, and the counter is very cheap and un-useful.
Overall for office exercise I like this cycle and I recommend it for anybody who is looking to get their legs moving during long office hours.
Easy excercise I am a diabetic person with leg problems and this little devise helps me to do my necessary exercises, it is very portable and easy to use....more info
Great for Seniors I purchased this item as a therapy tool for my disabled mother. She has been able to "pedal" it and strengthen her body. It works great....more info
Sturdy parts but needs QA The price was right for this product and the parts are sturdy and plenty strong. The welding was not great though, and the product was mis-aligned which causes it to wobble
Clip to attach small plastic timer was also welded about 1/2 too high so that it could not properly attach....more info

Great for city seniors with little room to spare. Bought this for my in-laws in their late 70's. They live in NYC all their life, never play any sports or excercise, walking becomes a problem if they don't keep up with some kind of excercise. This mini bike is perfect for them as a starter. Small enough for having it in living room or on a table for arm workout. They love it, and most of all they don't feel intimidated because it's low impact option gives them more confidence that they're able to do it. Sometimes smaller is better and this is one of them. Very good quality in material and structure....more info
Feedback UNIT LOOKS A LOT BETTER THAN SIMILAR ITEMS I'VE SEEN. I TRIED IT OUT AND IT WORKS OK. NOW IF I COULD JUST MY WIFE TO TRY IT BECAUSE THAT'S WHO I BOUGHT IT FOR....more info
Easy ~ This isn't the fanciest piece of equipment in the world, but is easily serving it's purpose. It was pretty easy to put together and put to use. The cycle doesn't take up a whole lot of space,and is definitely something you can use while typing Amazon reviews.
I've also used it tabletop for arms, which I'm hoping will be part of my recovery following a broken left arm.
The timer's also helpful, but several times I've not held the off switch long enough and found it still running the next day. If you want no-excuse low-impact activity that allows multi-tasking, this is it....more info
I give this product 0 stars I live a sedentary lifestyle. I bought this to get a little exercise, after reading that it wasn't much exercise but might be good for someone who was sedentary. That'd be me. Thing is, I took it out of it's box in the kitchen, then since my friend was sitting in the living room, I decided to put it together in there. The right pedal fell off while i was carrying it. Looked at the broken part, and i kid you not there was rust on it. so i got a refund and bought yarn. i am trying to find other ways to help myself not be sedentary. i've started doing some walking. it's free....more info
Pretty Good Works well.... Use it as an extra boost..
I use it when watching TV, reading a book or talking on the phone. If you have a problem with it slipping, use a non-slip rug pad, makes it much more stable....more info
Good deal for a cheap remedy. I needed a way to exercise my legs to improve circulation(diabetic with heart problems)and this does the trick!!!! This is not a sophisticated machine and the timer is really worthless. But it works wonders on my circulation issues in my the legs. I will try it on my arms for my back. It is no substitute for a tread mill but if I could do that well I wouldn't have needed this....more info
Simple but efficient It's small and doesn't cost much but it does the job. My wife had a serious ankle sprain and the doctor recommended it for therapy....more info
Building my stamina Being a 78yr male I have found the instride cycle to be a great way of exercise indoors. I use it for both my legs and shoulders. I have lost 10 lbs in 2 weeks, but more importantly my body feels better....more info
MAYBE I NEED ANOTHER ONE BUT... WHILE USING THE PRODUCT IT STICKS AS IT TURNS - NOT GIVING ME A TRUE FEELING OF RIDING A BIKE. ALTHOUGH, THE RESISTANCE IS DUE TO TURNING THE KNOB IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TUBE, IT DOESN'T SEEM TO GIVE YOU A TRUE VERSION OF EXERCISING. IF THE PRODUCT CAN BE IMPROVED IN RESISTANCE AND SMOOTHNESS OF PEDALING - IT WOULD PROBABLY BE MORE EFFECTIVE....more info
Kind of Pointless I had high hopes for this cycle even though I had read other reviews. Let me just say they were all completely correct! This product may be fine if you are going through physical therapy or are just beginning to move, but this is NOT a replacement for regular exercise. When I try to pedal faster, the feet raise up off the floor! This is also not that great for under the desk unless you are shorter than 4'10". Your knees will hit the desk. I did not use it for arm exercise, so maybe this is a better purpose for the product. The bars get very hot after 10 minutes of work to the point that I have burned my skin...through pants. I may not be the intended consumer of this product, but I can tell if something is of good quality, this is not. I ended up buying a regular old recumbent bike for in front of the t.v. ...more info
Stamina 15-0120 Instride Cycle The Stamina cycle is a great buy. It is very sturdy. It tends to slide but thats easy to correct by designing a small rope and looping each side to a chair.

Great for upper body!!!! Stamina 15-0120 InStride Cycle XL
Here's a positive review. Let me start off by giving you a little background about why I purchased this product. I'm in my early 30's, very athletic/marathon runner in fact. I injured my achilles tendon and had to give up my once very active lifestyle for over a month now. Since I couldn't even walk without the use of crutches I had to find something else to get my cardio in. Since I knew I would only be off my feet for a few more months I needed something inexpensive but sturdy. Using this product for my upper body was perfect. Despite all of the other reviews about only having two speeds I can understand this concept if you're in your golden years, but for younger people this product works great. Changing both hand positions and directions give you a kick-butt work out. I have only used the bike for about an hour total. I haven't heard any goose sounds from the center crank and hope I don't. I figure if I do, it will be about time for me to start running again and shelf the bike. The only negative I have found so far is the metal arm connecting the pedals get hot to the touch and you can smell the grease heating up. I couldn't see myself ever using this product as a sit-down bike. I hope this review helped........more info
Doesn't work with normal height office desks. It is a good product, just as advertised, unfortnately it doesn't fit under my desk. Once I start peddling, my knees hit the top of my desk. Also, I have a rolling chair (as most offices have) and that makes it quite difficult. I need brakes on the chair! So, I took the device home and use it while I watch TV, so disappointing in that sense. It would have been nice to find a product that I could use at work. ...more info
Cycling at home I've been having problems walking and therefore, don't get proper exercise. The Stamina InStride Cycle helps me with this. I can sit and cycle. I am still comfortable but can get some exercise. It's great. It was easy to put together and simple to use. I haven't tried the arm exercises yet but that looks interesting too.
Just right Affordable, small footprint under the computer or in front of the TV - perfect for a newly diagnosed diabetic who must exercise when blood sugar levels are high and the weather outside is terrible. Perfect for that 10 - 30 minutes of muscle movement. My dietician recommended this type of product to help with needed exercise. Easy to put together. No reason to spend a lot of $ and I think we can travel with it also because the size is great. And free shipping and delivered in a week or less!...more info
Excellent Source of Walking in Place I purchased this product to continue my walking in place exercising while at my desk during work. I absolutely love it. Eight of my walking team members at work have ordered it also. I feel different muscles in my thighs being worked out as I petal the bike in place. It works great for me and is a great product. I only wish it had a pedometer along with the timer on it. I clip my pedometer to the side of my shoe to get my steps accounted for. I recommend the machine for those who want to work out and strenghten their leg and thigh muscles, especially to improve circulation. ...more info

Poorly designed useless product I didn't have high hopes for this dirt cheap exercise machine and it didn't even manage to live up to those. Basically this machine is useless unless you find a way to anchor it to the floor and/or are too small to actually move it. My intention was to use it at the office under my desk but I couldn't make it stay put no matter what I tried. In addition, the difficulty setting mechanism is impossible to use and has only two levels - frictionless and stuck. Overall this was a big disappointment and I ended up returning it (thanks to Amazon for the great return policy). In two words - don't bother....more info
Great Deal This product was exactly as described. I purchased this cycle for physical therapy for a frozen shoulder. Works great on tabletop, does not slip. Best deal I have found on the internet. ...more info
Very Satisfied I purchased this product for my 88 year old visually impaired father. As he was no longer able to safely climb onto his stationary bike, and since he needs and enjoys the exercise, the Stamina Cycle is perfect. I highly recommend it for people with limited mobility. ...more info
Short pedal radius Stamina 15-0120 InStride Cycle XL I am a senior with compromised leg muscles due to old polio. I hoped this device would provide a simple way to limber up my legs in the morning. However, I discovered that it has a pedal radius of 4". Normal exercise machines and adult bicycles have pedal radii around 7-8". Using this machine is like pedaling a kiddie cycle. It gives me some limbering, but not enough range of motion to really do any good....more info
Stamina Instride Cycle XL Stamina 15-0120 InStride Cycle XL - works great with any chair, although I bought it to use with the Resistance Chair as part of a physical therapy program following knee surgery. I've never used it over 15 minutes at a time but care needs to be used when moving it because it does tend to get hot at the top where the tension knob is....more info
