What customers say about "Design"
Schwinn Airdyne Pro Exercise Bike, Silver
  • It was pretty easy to assemble and has very smooth operation.
  • I jumped right into my first workout after assembly, and it was GLORIOUS! Thanks for an awesome product!
  • I assembled the lower frame sections with the rollers first and then rolled the bike into my living room for final assembly. The instructions suggested two people assemble the bike.
  • Excellent! Easy to assemble and NO issues! I'm 6'5" and 320lbs. I was conserned. It is stable ,sturdy and does not seem to stress under my weight.
  • The multi position grips are a must due to different users body types requiring multiple configurations of the seat, both forward / back, and up / down, which will put you closer or further from the "Handlebars". Seat adjustment is quick and stable once tight
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 Pro Exercise Bike, Silver
  • The display offers several options for workouts: interval training, time goal, calorie goal, etc.
  • The fan is louder at higher rpm's so volume on the tv or stereo will need to be adjusted up up.
  • Software is frustrating. Can't keep miles ridden or MPH visible (switches back to RPMs and Calories). You have to press multiple buttons to see this info and it won't let you customize the display to what you want to see regularly
  • The buttons on the dash have very little feel
  • The interval program don't seem to be working correctly either. I finally got one of the intervals to work, and then half way through round three the whole thing just froze.
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.
