The seat is positioned on a smooth aluminum rail with rollers that make it quick and easy to adjust so that if there is more than one user in the house, changing between them is fast and simple.

What Makes the Fusion Special

Recumbent bikes are known for their added comfort, but they are often downplayed due to the fact that they don't provide as much resistance, and don't feel like a bike when you ride them. The Stamina 7200 Magnetic Fusion Recumbent Exercise bike excels in the recumbent arena because the seating, while still in the comfort zone, at 45 degrees puts you in a more upright situations, with upright handlebars along with side bars for common recumbent positioning. The upright bars give you more of a street bike feel, but still alleviate pressure on the wrists because there is a backrest, and you aren't leaning over the bars holding your upper body in position.
