Schwinn 270 Recumbent Bike

This is an attractive well built bike with some great features. It is easy to assemble, Once it was built setting up the very bright control panel and first user was easy enough to do without instructions, but not exactly intuitive. If you're using it in a window lit room then it's not that bright, but at night I wish I could dim it a bit. Riding it is super comfortable and quite other than a status beep every 2 minutes, it's not too bad but it would be nice if it could be disabled. The amount of feedback is great including heart rate, speed, resistance, intensity, RPM, and more. Most of all, I liked that I got specific calorie data for my settings and not a generic average. Very quite in operation with a comfortable seat that is easily adjusted with a single adjustment lever, so the seat can slide up/down it's track. Plug in to add your music player to feed the speakers. A quite fan that is a gentle breeze and not much more even on high. The best all-around exercise bike on the market today. Currently available at an exceptionally good price.

Comfort & Ergonomics, The seat is something like you would find on a good office chair - wide, supportive, and well padded. It will support someone of up to 300 pounds, and it sits on a rail, allowing for easy backward and forward adjustment. There are forward handlebars to make it easy to get on and off, but in use you would normally grip the supports on either side of the seat.

You won't be worrying about the TV with the Schwinn 270 Recumbent Bike either - you'll probably be too focused on the multi-function, twin LCD display. There are the usual settings for time, distance, heart rate, and calories, but now you get access to all kinds of extras - 29 in all - allowing you to not only monitor current performance but track it over weeks, months, or even years. The same data can also be used with the popular MyFitnessPal calorie counter app. There are 25 resistance levels, delivered by a small, but high-inertia flywheel that keeps everything nice and quiet. Further features - unrelated to the fitness aspects - are a USB charging port so you can use your smartphone or tablet while exercising, a media rack, and even loudspeakers built into the display.
