The Stamina CPS 9300 Indoor Cycle exercise bike gives you the consistent, cadenced ride of a real road bike due to the heavy 40 lb weighted flywheel that builds momentum for that outdoor feel.
On top of that, the CPS 9300’s sturdy steel frame gives an exceptionally solid ride. The seat adjusts up and down as well as fore and aft to put you in proper riding position. The Stamina CPS 9300’s InTouch® Fitness Monitor with its large, easy-to-read LCD display tracks time, distance, speed and calories burned or set it to scan and track all readouts.
This is the bike for well balanced, low impact cardio workouts and for bikers who want to train indoors on bad weather days. Read on for our full indoor bike review of the Stamina CPS 9300 indoor cycle.

Shipping and Assembly:
Shipping costs will vary for the Stamina® CPS 9300 depending on where you purchase from and what type of delivery you prefer. However, some retailers, such as Amazon.com, will provide free shipping.
The Stamina® CPS 9300 comes pre-assembled and goes together very quickly. Stamina® includes a step-by-step, illustrated manual to walk you through the simple process. In a half an hour or less from the time the packaging arrives on your doorstep, you can be training on this bike.
What We Love About the Stamina CPS 9300:
What we like best about the Stamina CPS 9300 is the price. This bike retails around $700, but you can find it online for less than $400! That’s unbelievable! For less than $400, you’re getting a pretty solid bike. At over 100 lbs, with a 40 lb flywheel and a steel tube frame, this bike is going to stand up to your workouts and outlast your $400 investment.
The Stamina CPS 9300 comes with the InTouch® Fitness Monitor. Now, the computer is pretty basic, but the fact that there is a way to get real time workout statistics is really good at this price point. Don’t believe us? Take a look at the Spinner® NXT and the Bodycraft® SPX. These bikes will run you two or three times the price of the Stamina CPS 9300, and they don’t have any computer whatsoever. The InTouch® Fitness Monitor provides you with time, distance, speed and calories burned readouts that can be set to scan throughout your workout.
Delivery is the biggest concern for the Stamina CPS 9300. There are a ton of comments stating that users received bent and broken parts. Even people who rated this bike very high stated that they had delivery issues. It appears that Stamina just isn’t packaging their product securely enough. Customer service appears to be very accommodating and not an issue at all. Again, the issue seems to be packaging and care during transport.
Parts Fit & Noises
There were a lot of comments concerning the fit of the seat and handlebars. Both appear to have some wobble. Nothing that is going to make you lose your balance on the bike, but there is definitely some play in them. A lot of reviewer also comments on squeaking noises in the bike and clunking noises in the cranks and pedals. It appears that Stamina hasn’t finely tuned their parts for this cycle.
Final Word on the Stamina CPS 9300 Indoor Cycle:
In this price range, it is going to be tough to find a better bike than the Stamina CPS 9300. The bike is heavy and solid and has really good adjustability to fit just about any user. Now, it’s definitely not a slam dunk. There does appear to be some issues, especially with delivery. The good news is that it seems like Stamina® is used to dealing with these issues and they are very accommodating.
