Schwinn 201 Recumbent Bike

Schwinn 201 Recumbent Bike

Pros: solid well built bike good features, great bike for good price
Cons: short power adapter cord a wall outlet is needed near the placement of bike
The Bottom Line: I feel like I am at a gym riding this bike. Solid construction, nice computer
console features most important EASY to pedal- if you want it to be.

The assembly of the bike was pretty easy, and for the most part I did it myself. Everything was clearly labeled. All the tools are included. I only had my husband help me attach the console.

I was so happy to discover not only was this bike easy to pedal but you could change the resistance very easily on the computer console by just a press on an up down button.

Bike has 8 resistance levels so if you want a hard work out you can also get one.

I have been using the bike for over two weeks now, enjoying the variety of program’s which includes 6 pre-programed settings and a manual setting which you can pick your goal and resistance level. The console which is computer controlled shows the RPM’s/speed/distance /calories / time and pulse. The controlled, Eddy Current Drive System is Belt

The Dimensions are 56″L x 25″W x 38″H/142 L x 64 W x 97 H cm
Product Weight 93.5 lbs/42 kg and Max User Weight 300 lbs/136 kg .

The seat is comfortable however I find it better to sit on the edge then lean back. There is plenty of leg room even for a tall person, you can easily adjust the seat. Another neat feature is the wheels on the front so you can move it around easily. The hand grips are on the sides which measures your pulse. There is also a recovery feature to measure the amount your heart rate drops in one minute after you stop exercising. It also has a water bottle holder and a rack for your magazine or TV remote. The bike is also very quiet so you can watch TV while riding or have a conversation.

I bought the bike for $299 free shipping, I feel this was a great price. I really recommend spending the extra money to get this bike over those in the lower $200 range. In fact I can’t see any reason why I would pay more for a bike when this bike has all the features I personally need. I should add if you have back problems such as myself I think you will
