The steel construction of the CPS 9190 base is solid, and allows you to comfortably stand up in order to build speed, like you are riding uphill. The seat of this exercise bike adjusts up and down as well as side to side, so that you can maximize the comfort of your ride. The handlebars of the CPS 9190 have a no-slip design, and are adjustable. The tension of the pedals is also adjustable, so that you can choose how much resistance you want. Stamina recommends using this exercise bike three times a week for at least twenty minutes. The CPS 9190 has essentially the same specs as the higher cost CPS 9200, but has a lighter flywheel (22 pounds as opposed to 29 pounds), and is not designed for more intense indoor riding as the CPS 9200 is. The Stamina CPS 9190 comes with a three year frame warranty and ninety day parts warranty.
