What customers say about "Key Specs"
Schwinn Airdyne AD6 Exercise Bike
  • The resistance matches my demands either faster or slower for my usual 20 minute workout.
  • The natural resistance works well, as does the upper body workout using the handles.
  • Air resistance rises fast with increasing speed making this very challenging. If you like challenge then you should definitely buy this bike.
  • It would be nice to have greater control over the resistance other than relying entirely on exponential wind resistance.
  • It's got too much resistance on it and when I called to find out how to lower it, I was told it comes preset and that's just the way it can't change it. So there is sits, because it's too hard on my joints.
Schwinn Airdyne AD7 Bike
  • The unit operates very smoothly and provides a great workout.
  • This thing is a beast, super well constructed.
  • Operates smoothly. Solid, heavy construction.
  • Well built bike where I can build up resistance by peddling quicker.
  • The AD7 has the greatest resistance, finally i found resistance for hardy man like me.

What customers say about "Design"
Schwinn Airdyne AD6 Exercise Bike
  • Bike is well made, and was easy to assemble, just take your time.
  • The Schwinn Airdyne AD6 Exercise Bike is a solid piece of equipment. It is built to last a very long time with minimal maintenance.
  • Assembly was easy and only took about 30 minutes total including leveling.
  • This bike fits me perfectly. My wife is 5' 2" and the seat adjusts to her height easily, so she is comfortable with it also.
  • I don't ride this because the seat sits too far back and there's no way to adjust it forward.
Schwinn Airdyne AD7 Bike
  • This bike is solid! Easy to assemble.
  • Well built and well designed. Very pleased with this bike.
  • The two axis seat adjustment is a nice feature.
  • Seat position could be more flexible: Horizontal distance too limited.
  • The only down fall is the seat is uncomfortable after sitting on it for a longer period. I cant seem to find the right adjustment for it not to hurt.

What customers say about "Features"
Schwinn Airdyne AD6 Exercise Bike
  • The cardio movement is great for my upper and lower body workout; the computer console is great too!
  • The console displays RPM, speed, distance, watts, and calories. Very convininent features for that price!
  • I really like that console, easy to read even in dark room.
  • Instructions are clear enough, except that the manual that came with it was missing an entire section on how to program the console.
  • The console is not readable except in fairly bright light, which does not exist in my workout location. I have to keep a flashlight nearby to see the screen.
Schwinn Airdyne AD7 Bike
  • The console is fairly good and provides a decent amount of utility.
  • In use it generates a lot of breeze with the air resistant fan and keeps you cool.
  • Solid, functional, as advertised. Easy to get a good workout, including upper body.
  • it’s disappointing that Schwinn didn’t include Bluetooth and other options that are available on their recumbent and traditional upright exercise bikes.
  • Expensive, and for the price, I believe it should be able to accommodate a reading stand. A clock would be an easy, inexpensive addition.
