It only weighs 60 pounds and can be easily moved by two people and takes up very little floor space. On bare floors or thin carpet I believe one could drag it easily to another position.

It's quite heavy, if you're moving it up or down stairs, it won't work well for that, but if you're moving from room to room on one level, there are wheels on the front support that make it east to roll from room to room.

The seat is farily low to the ground and it's very easy to walk through to the seat with no climbing necessary. As long as you can get your feet on the pedals and keep them there, I believe this bike would work for you.

answer 2
This bike has a lot more resistance than other recumbent bikes. If your doctor thinks a recumbent bike will work for your needs, I would look at one that is not magnetic resistance. If all else fails try a recumbent bike out at a local gym to see if it will work for you. Usually they will allow a one day free pass. ;) (I would definately talk to your doctor first).

You can gear it down to be very easy to turn but it does not have loops over the foot to hold your right foot in place. With variations, I could see it helping you, especially with the circulation.

I think you could. I have temporarily lost use of one leg and can still use the bike, although even at the lowest tension it does require some effort to pedal with one foot. Your other foot can either rest on the middle of the bike or on the floor, but it might be a good idea to not install the pedal on the side of the crank you won't be using.

Its a great bike, but you say you have little use of your right leg so you may want to get a bike that has straps on the pedals so your feet don't slip off.

There is no way to keep the feet attached to the pedals. I don think that since you had a stroke with little use of your right leg that you would be able to do so. Not unless you can find feet attachments to use on the pedals.

the seat is not much more than a foot off the ground. This is a great plus for me, as I really need stability and shied away from the higher, more upright model. I am finding this recumbent style is far easier on my bad knee as well. I reviewed this under "Highly Recommend", if you want to see other points I liked.

I'm no doctor, but before I got this bike I couldn't walk around my block without getting winded and my lower back aching real bad. In less than a month, I am now able to "ride" for 3.5 miles a day in about 30 minutes. I can definitely tell a difference in the muscle tone of my legs.

Yes, I believe it will. I had a total left knee replacement a few years ago. Since I no longer walked for exercise and walking has been difficult (need the other knee replaced); I needed a stationary bike w/back support. This product is meeting my needs and I believe it will work for you as well.

I had both my knees replaced and use it 5 times a week. My physical therapist advised start with 3 to 5 minutes and keep adding until 10 or 20. They started my therapy sessions with a 5 min bike ride. After the second and 3 months I increase the tension slightly. Your body will tell you if your pushing it.

I had TKR April 12th and only recently was able to use my bike, bought specifically for post-op exercise. I'm 9 weeks out and just started using it last week, albeit slowly. The range of motion will be too much initially, but your therapist will tell you that a bike is the best exercise for knees, new or natural, once you can ride without pain or discomfort. I'm well pleased with the quietness and quality of the bike and the seat is very comfortable. Anything you can do to strengthen your leg muscles prior to surgery will definitely be to your benefit.

Question

Display not working

I bought this bike. It's called the Stamina R360s Recumbent Bike. However, I'm having a problem with the display. It has the word "STOP" on the upper left hand corner, and it doesn't matter how I pedal or push the mode button (I also tried resetting it), the time and speed remain at 0.00. Is there something that I need to push or am I missing something?

You probably should check all of the electrical connections and the wires going into the connectores. If that doesn't fix the problem you should call the company at the number in the insruction manual. I called them for a question I had and they were very responsive and friendly.

I owned this bike a few years ago, sold it when I moved across country but I'm buying a new one soon since I loved it SO much. With my old one I weighed over 300lbs and it held me just fine, no problems, not even in the long run. Now, that being said, being over the weight limit would probably void the warranty so I wouldn't suggest wasting the money on an extended warranty. Other than that, I'd say go for it.

Weight limit per manufacturer is 250 lbs. There were reviews of people that were over the 250 using the bike, but they never said how much they weighed to start with.

Leslie Sansone does Walking Workouts that are not like a typical walk, and you can do it to match what you can do. It might be a starting point for you. I do the Walking workouts, and bike to keep my body guessing, and I have lost some pounds that way. Leslie Sansone's Walking DVDs can be found at Wal-Mart. Good luck to you on your journey!

I would look into getting a more upright bike with arm movement. It would help you lose alittle faster being that it would work more of your muscle groups then just the legs.
