Default Treadmill Vs Fixed Bicycle For Fitness

I have personally conducted an experiment to see which one of these two treadmill or fixed bicycle is more effective for fitness and gaining strength. And for me the fixed bicycle has been more effective. Treadmill is good for general fitness but fixed bicycle is more than that and is an effective tool to improve stamina and endurance power.

Default For me...

For me, it depends how much energy I put into either one, I tend to have more stamina over time to work harder on a treadmill but indoor cycling can be as much a workout if I get past the tedium of it with intervals.

Having done triathlons some years ago, I found out that if you do both the treadmill and cycle and add swimming, you will be buff and strong all around.

=========================
'stamina and endurance power' DOING WHAT?

What was your test for determining the amount of change?

If you want to be accepted & recognized as providing reliable information, then you need to be more thorough in providing details.
e.g.
The training procedure on each device, amount of time, heart rate, 'perceived exertion' (Borg scale) etc.
The test procedure to determine amount of change that resulted from training.
