    Schwinn - Get your Act Together

    I will start with saying this bike works very well - gives me a great workout. It was definitely more of a challenge for me than my previous Weslo bike I had for over 13 years. That said - I do not feel as comfortable on this bike as I did my Weslo. The arm bars seem to be set too far away from the seat, causing the rider to need to lean forward on the very narrow and hard seat (as many other reviewers state). No adjustment of the seat up or down seemed to help this issue. So, since my Weslo bike was not "fixable" I had to devise a way to make this bike work better for me. I bought a pool noodle, with a hole down the middle, and cut off about 5-6 inch pieces. I sliced those pieces in half down one side and wrapped them around the handles on the side toward the seat. I then used duct tape to tape them very tightly around the handles so they would not slip. This has made a huge difference - I can sit up straight (reducing stress on my low back and preventing pressure on... 4/5 Rebecca (San Diego, CA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Huge THUMBS UP

    What a sturdy, quality piece of workout equipment. Even if you just buy it for hip, knee post-op or pre-op ( ask Dr. first ) or for the fastest way to burn calories. Also you'll love the monitor which gauges your reasons, for riding. Two double AA Batteries come included for it..Following information covers many of your questions, hopefully.I have used this model in the past, and before I bought my semi-recumbent stationary bike. This one far exceeds the benefits of the semi with the fastest workout even if you are on it one minute at moderate speed. You will be breathing hard then, unless you are accustomed to long, hard workouts.. With the semi-recumbent it would take 4 minutes for heavy breathing.. No moving arms on those. After 3 months I sold it. This bike works everything out...all muscle groups and what an aerobic workout. It works just as described in the onsite description. I am loving it. I am so thrilled. I hired a general contractor to put it together for me... 5/5 OceanBreeze (Pacific Northwest) - See all my reviews This review is from: Schwinn AD2 Airdyne Bike (Sports) What a sturdy, quality piece of workout equipment.

    Excellent exercise bike

    5/5 Gordon Karsin (KAMUELA, HI, US) - See all my reviews This review is from: Schwinn AD2 Airdyne Bike (Sports) This airdyne is amazing. It took me about an hour to put it together by myself. The seat is not so comfortable so I ordered another from Amazon. You can use your arms and legs together or just the legs or just the arms. You get a real workout in a short time. I had to start at five minutes and work up. I highly recommend this Schwinn Airdyne. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 1, 2014

    More comfortable than a pillow!

    5/5 huggyface - See all my reviews This review is from: 1-1/2" Thick - 12" Wide - Bicycle Seat Cover / Gel Pad-Wide I bought this after 3 weeks of horrid pain riding my new Proform stationary upright. I am a large girl (280 lbs), so the combined pressure of my own weight plus a hard bike seat caused pain so great I could barely walk after a ride.The benefits I have noticed from this seat:*I can ride longer, peddle faster*Drastic reduction in pain around groin, buttock, and lower back areas*Referred pain from my spine to left leg is no longer a problem while I ride. Before, my left leg would get tired and hurt after only a short ride.*Gel moves and adjusts with your weight as you peddle, reducing friction and "saddle sores"*Comfortable for plus-sized peopleWithout the pain from my seat, I can now focus on my ride and put more into it, instead of thinking about how much I want to get off the bike. Now instead of asking myself "When can I stop?" I ask "How long can I go?" Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 20, 2010

    A Bum-Saver

    So here's a question: How can a gel seat cover enhance your level of fitness? Answer: When you aren't avoiding the exercise bike because of a painful bum. Bought this to use on my Schwinn Evo Comp exercise bike. While this bike advertises a wide, comfortable seat, I found that I needed more help. This gel cushion was a perfect fit and does make the seat softer. Now to the real shocker.... Just minutes after placing my order with Amazon, I got an email from this supplier asking me to confirm the size of my bike seat. It wasn't some automated response, it truly was a nice woman who was just trying to be very helpful. What amazing customer service!One word of caution unrelated to this product, though. Amazon had this product + a sheepskin cover listed as "frequently bought together". I ordered the exact sheepskin cover and it didn't come close to fitting, way too small. Don't bother with the sheepskin, unless you carefully check dimensions first... 5/5 Southern Belle (Georgia, USA) - See all my reviews, July 4, 2015

    My buns are in heaven.

I was having trouble taking long rides on the bike because of the comfort of the seat. This is the cadillac of bicycle seats. Plenty of gel and is abolutely perfect.
