The forty five degree angle of the padded oversized seat aligns your feet, legs and hips. This allows you to put equal energy into the down and upstrokes, for a complete workout. There are eight levels of magnetic resistance to choose from, depending on how intense you want your workout. The InTouch monitor of this exercise bike measures time, speed, distance, calories, program and pulse, with the push of one button. The Magnetic Fusion 7100 comes with seven modes (six of which are pre-programmed workouts), including manual, fat burn, maximum fat burn, aerobic, hill, mountain, and plateau. This is not as much as the higher cost Fusion 7200, which has twelve modes to choose from. The Fusion 7100 also lacks the weighted pedals, aluminum seat rail (with rollers) and molded seat of the 7200. The Stamina Magnetic Fusion 7100 comes with a five year frame warranty and a ninety day parts warranty.
