Schwinn Exercise Bike: Schwinn 220 Recumbent Exercise Bike

Schwinn Exercise Bike: Schwinn 220 Recumbent Exercise Bike

5-Star Review:

The price on this item was excellent, and it was purchased at a time when Amazon offered free shipping; making it a super bargain. We were able to see the same item at a local Sports Authority to test it out; it's a quality machine, and just the right size for our upstairs extra bedroom, while fitting in as another piece of furniture. 

I had read reviews about having difficulty assembling these bikes, but had no trouble at all. I am over 65, but put it together in 1-1/2 leisurly hours. Liked the fact that it came in parts, since I unpacked it in the foyer, carrying upstairs in several trips. My (also over 65) wife is primarily "riding" this; likes the recumbent style, giving back support, while getting much needed exercise. 

It does have some special "programs" that can be customized, but she just hits quick start; we really don't need anything too complicated-fits the bill perfectly. It's very quiet, and does not compete with her TV viewing. I did like the Schwinn name, although I found that they are now owned by Nautilus (also a good company name). 

I called about the control panel, on their 800 number, and they were very helpful. This is the largest item that I've ever ordered online, but won't hesitate in the future, particularly from Amazon.com.

5-Star Review

I've had this bike for about 5 weeks now and am very pleased with my purchase. I just sit in front of the TV and play PS3 for about 1-2 hours every day and burn plenty of calories. The chair is much more comfortable than our old standard exercise bike, which is paramount when using it as much as we do.

We also looked at the more expensive, older Schwinn model. Personally, we liked this one better, and it's 200 bucks cheaper. This one was more comfortable and also much more easily adjusted, which is nice when you have 2 people using it at very different heights. This one hasn't been on the market as long, so I'm not sure how it'll last over the years, but so far it's been strong and sturdy. Still, we got a 3 year warranty (not from Amazon) just in case. Even with the warranty it's still much cheaper than the $[...] Schwinn model.

As for negatives, you can get a lot of resistance from this bike, but each step up is a big jump. It would have been nicer to be able to ramp up more gradually. Also, I believe the calorie burner count is too high. I have a hard time believing that I can burn almost 1000 calories in an hour (although I do get the resistance up pretty high and break a good sweat).

All told though, this is an excellent bike at an excellent price. Highly recommend.
