    Last Piece of Equipment Needed 4 the Basement Gym

    This review will be broken down into two parts: Installation/Delivery & use of the product. Installation/Delivery: Firstly, I am so happy to currently be a member of the Total Tech Membership. As a result, I was able to get this bike for $500. That $500 included not only the bike, but also the delivery AND installation. I ordered the bike about a week ago and set up delivery/install for Friday 1.21.22. The two guys that came to complete the bike delivery and set up were AWESOME! I think we were their last delivery on Friday as they called and said they were driving back from Sheboygan then to Green Bay to pick up bike, then up to Door County. Even though I could tell they had a LONG day these two guys were EXCEPTIONAL. They came in brought the bike downstairs and happily went to work on putting it together. They got the whole thing together and rocking and rolling in about 40 minutes (totally worth me not doing it b/c I'm sure it would've taken me much longer). They gave me a tutorial on use and took everything away. Both of these guys deserve a TEN out of TEN for their efforts & hard work (even on a late Friday night). Thanks MUCH to them Use of Product: my wife did a ride yesterday on the bike and I used it this morning before work. The product is SUPER easy to use and it is VERY VERY QUIET (you can hardly hear it running). I love that they have user profiles that keep track of your workouts and overall distances that you bike (it allows 4 profiles). This bike has a great display for your workouts and it has plenty of choices for programs. It also has a fan and though I haven't used it yet it has a USB port and speakers for listening to what you'd like (I am an ear buds kind of guy). When using the bike it is VERY comfortable (I'm 5'10') and the seat moves with ease. This was the perfect last piece of exercise equipment we needed for our basement gym and it provides a good workout without major stress on the body. I would HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone who is on the fence about buying it. The bike (as you can see in the pictures) does not take up that much room compared to other pieces of cardio equipment as well which is a bonus.

    My husband and I love this bike! It has wheels on the front and a handle in the back so it was easy to roll into place. We programmed ourselves as different users and I love how it recognizes me without me touching a single button. The seat is easy to adjust and comfortable. We weren’t looking for a lot of bells and whistles so haven’t tried a lot of the programming yet, but it definitely meets our needs and then some. The delivery was easy with friendly service.

    Great Exercise Bike

    I am really glad I purchased this exercise bike. I paid the extra fee for assembly and was happy with the service. The bike is sturdy, easy to use, and presents many opportunities for challenging levels and programs. I have had back surgery and the adjustable recumbent position prevents back pain. I placed it in my den/TV room so I can easily watch TV while cycling. Also I like to use the small shelf to place a book or pod cast video while on the bike. My gym closed permanently due to the pandemic so this allows me to keep fit conveniently at home. The only negative is the heart rate tracker doesn't really pick up. Overall very happy with this bike!

    Whisper quiet and syncs with Explore the World app, which is fun. I’m going to get an Oculus Quest and ride with VZFit on Google street maps so the motivation to explore helps the motivation to exercise. But even if you don’t want to get into all that, it’s a great bike. I’m 5’1 and in my 50s.

    This bike has 25 levels but I can only get up to level 9! No noise! None! Very comfortable seat that doesn’t go up your fanny! A cup holder for your water and a place to connect you phone or tablet. Bluetooth ready. You can’t beat this bike. Excellent quality and low price. Stop looking and grab this bike. I ride for an hour watching Netflix:)

    The bike is smooth to ride and is very quiet. I would recommend it in the recumbent bike market. Additionally, its easy on spine and works great for arthritic knees or post knee replacement

    I bought this Exercise bike not too long ago and gave it a good couple weeks of use. The app it claimed to have, that connected it with other health/fitness apps no longer exist. The secondary app which is supposed to allow you to update the firmware of the unit doesn’t even recognize this machine. My iPhone and other devices do not find any Bluetooth broadcast from this unit either. While, i think its a pretty well made product for the price and easy to use for simple work outs; Be aware this unit is a 2016 model, and does not do all the interactive things it claims. Lastly, the heart-rate monitor grips are a little low and awkward, and are definitely inaccurate. Just be aware. Its not a piece of junk, but it does have flaws. If you live in or near Brentwood, Ca , you can get the unit i returned in mint condition at an open box price. Already assembled, by yours truly!

    Like the bike. Took me less than an hour to assemble. I gave four stars because the seat raises to make room for leg length and I feel like I’m sliding off the seat (long legs). I wish the seat just went back and not back and UP.

    I purchased this after my old treadmill started to suddenly start and stop at random due to a motor finally giving up the ghost. Having gotten older and having no desire to fall and be catapulted across the room, I went for this. I purchased this at $499.00 while it was on sale. It has 25 resistance settings, it adjusts really easy for the seat, which is comfortable. It has a built in 3 speed fan in the console that you can aim at your face. It's bluetooth enable for several apps, though you can't play music through blue tooth, but it does have a usb and an audio jack that you can hook your phone to if you want tunes. I had it assembled for me since I didn't want to carry the box up the stairs, but watching it put together I'm pretty sure I could have done it myself. Since the assembly was free at the time it was a good deal. I really can't think of anything negative about it. You can put in an exercise profile for up to four people including age, height, weight and what your exercise goals are, and it will track for you, or the blue tooth will let you get a fitness app.

    No Need to Buy the Fancy, Expensive Bikes

    One thing I've found is that most fitness equipment sellers are increasing their prices by 25 percent and more because so many people are setting up home gyms. That's disgusting. So I was happy to find this Schwinn recumbent at it's pre-coronavirus price. I read a bunch of reviews, many of which gave glowing reviews of the Schwinn, even among the bikes costing twice as much. I've now had the bike for 4 weeks and I'm impressed with its smoothness and it quality. It's feels like the bike I used at my gym.

    I bought this for my wife in anticipation of winter coming and her not being able to do her usual 5 mile walk due to ice and snow. I put it together myself, which was fairly easy. We're now having a little trouble understanding the programming --- we may consider scheduling a appointment with a member of the Geek Squad if we don't get this figured out. The user's manual, that can be found on-line, is not very clear and almost seems to be missing information. My wife is riding it, without any programming, and she seems very happy. She says it's comfortable and the seat adjustment accommodates her long legs.

    Excellent exercise bike at an excellent price. Free delivery was included and much appreciated that they moved the heavy box into the back room for me. Setup took about 90 minutes with assistance from a step-by-step YouTube video that made identifying parts and order a breeze (SEARCH: "Complete! Assemble Schwinn 270 Recumbent Exercise Bike") The bike is very comfortable and includes a console with lots of information and ability to setup custom programs. It's really not too bulky either and fits well along the wall of our room, so its pretty much out of the way. It has wheels in the front and a handle in the back to enable you to easily lift and move the bike. There is also a media shelf underneath the main display to hold your phone or tablet, and also a USB port to keep your device charged during your work out. The only negative thing you might have is that the Bluetooth capability is limited to using their app for downloading information about your session. You can't stream any music to its internal speakers at all. You will need to use the supplied 3.5mm input port and cable to attach to an MP3 player or phone that has a similar jack to play any music from the speakers. But you can just use your own phone or tablet along with wireless earbuds or headphones for better sound. The bike itself is very quiet when pedaling, which is nice. It has 25 levels of resistance which is plenty, and includes a heart rate monitor via the handles mounted on either side of the seat. A little nice addition is the cup holder/storage for your water bottle and/or remote control. Compare all this to the very similar (and more expensive) Nautilus R618 Recumbent bike that has almost identical features and made by the same company.

    I wanted something with consistent resistance similar to riding a bicycle at a slight upward grade. I was reluctant because of the price because I’ve had much more expensive exercise bikes in the past, but I read the reviews and took a chance. The way the resistance works is ideal. I love this bike! If you’re debating I strongly suggest you take the plunge. You won’t regret it. There is no better bike for the price. I don’t think there’s a better bike for twice the price.

    we ordered the Schwinn 270 and it was delivered quickly, and the delivery folks even took it downstairs, a welcome benefit for us 67 year old geezers. We both walk but the bike will help as the weather gets nasty during the winter months. Took 2+ hours to assemble, but I watched some videos online before tackling the assembly. Some of it was a tad tricky, but taking my time paid off. The unit fired up and works well. Now we will see how their free app works out. I like the overall construction. we don't need the online instructors or motivators, we just need to get some miles if the weather is ugly outside. BB had a price that was the same as Amazon, and I prefer using BB in case of a return that would be needed locally.

    Good, solid bike, but setting seat is not easy.

    This is an excellent exercise bike. It is solid with plenty of features to set the level of workout you desire. However, if more than one person is using the machine, it can be difficult to set it back to the distance that fits you. When you release the catch, it will fall to the bottom if you don't resist and there is no reference point other than trial and error. I plan to tape a flag on the moving platform and mark the set points on the rail. But, it is hard to see the rail from the seat and difficult to move precisely when you are not on the seat. This is a big miss in a shared machine. Seat location is critical as the large pedal diameter can create a tradeoff of too close or too far (or both) for short users.

    Let’s start by laying out that I am a big guy. Obese and 6’5”. That being said I can fit on this bike fine. The chair doesn’t hold my back very well, but for 60 minutes exercise it works. The bike itself is nice. It’s sturdy, me and my husband could get it down the stairs and at it up, and it’s comfortable to sit in. There are some issues. First the display isn’t great. It’s hard to keep track of your goals and set up a routine. Second the fan isn’t great at hitting my face. Finally the shoe holder is too narrow for my size 15 feet. I have to ride barefoot to get my feet to fit. These are minor things, but for the price tag they matter. The setup was pretty straight forward. A little annoying with some of the directions. Took about 30 minutes. Overall I am pleased. This is on par with the one I used to use at the gym. It’s a good exercise and fits nicely into a corner of a room. I’m glad I bought it and for a big guy I am pleased it is big enough and sturdy enough for me to use.
