    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?)

    I would have liked the console to be more programmable

    I have used this bike for a little over one month and find that it is every bit as effective as the ski machine I have used for years. Unlike other customers, I have not found the seat to be all that uncomfortable, although I only sit on the seat for 35-40 minutes. However, I must admit that I am somewhat used to such seats having ridden bicycles for several years. My one complaint has to do with the console; it was difficult to firmly attach to the frame, and has come off a few times. Also, I would have liked the console to be more programmable; for example, rather than scan the activities, I would like the ability to either focus on one or two of the activities for a more extended period of time. The absence of a heart monitor is, for me, a non issue as I believe a dedicated heart monitor is more accurate than those typically found on most exercise machines.Addendum: After 9 months I am revising my review of the Schwinn AD2 Airdyne primarily because of what I... 2/5 covalent Bond - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    and the clicking is getting worse the more I ride

    4/5 Sunshine (Michigan) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Schwinn AD2 Airdyne Bike (Sports) The seat is very uncomfortable. I had to buy a quality replacement seat which solved that issue. Little trouble putting the bolt in one place, it wasn't long enough. I had to go to the hardware to get a longer bolt, and that problem was solved. I am having an issue with a clicking noise coming from the fan area. I found the problem, which I cannot fix, and the clicking is getting worse the more I ride. I am supposed to hear from a Bowflex technician in a few days to help me with his issue.

    Maybe it will be useful, but it's disappointing

    So far I'm disappointed. Some of the other comments have pointed out the major issues that1. the fit is very tight, and it seems impossible to install it without scraping paint off the cycle.2. The reading rack sits high, very high. I think it will work for me (I have the seat at position 8), but my wife may have to look up at it (she uses position 6).3. Once installed it's not possible to slide the rack back and forth (as might be needed for different readers) even though the adjusters seem to suggest it should.4. Installation is a challenge. I like the tip about eliminating the adjuster to allow the bolt to fit. My wife and I worked on it tonight for 1/2 and hour or so and could never get the bolt to pass through as designed. In my case there were some additional problems.1. The supports, attached as instructed, were not aligned exactly. That meant the whole rack is skewed slightly to one side.2. All the parts were included, except on nut... 2/5 David Housholder (Marietta, GA (USA)) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Useful accessory - with some cautions.

    This rack is a useful addition to the AD6 and generally fits the bill. Although I like it, there are a couple of issues.(1) It ought to be very simple to install, but you'd never know it from the instructions, which are very faint and have tiny diagrams. You'll need a 5mm hex wrench (instructions say 6). They show an open-ended wrench as a required tool but don't specify the size (it's 10 mm); you can also use an adjustable wrench. Having a third hand would help, but I was able to install it without it.(2) The clamping system has an "interesting" design. It looks like it is intended to allow it to be adjusted for users of different heights, but, if so, it doesn't really work that way (and the instructions say to not slide the clamps on the rails of the bike). If you have users of significantly different heights, it's not adjustable without tools, and it's awkward to do so.It's an ideal size to prop up a small tablet; the flat portion of the... 4/5 Regnad Kcin - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Average book/e-book reader, outstanding tablet holder

    So I like to watch tv with the AD6 bike, which is fine, although you have to turn the volume up since the bike itself can get loud, which may be a problem if you live with other people nearby such as inside an apartment or someone sleeping in the next room over. Since I work third shift, keeping noise to a minimum is usually a requirement when I get home.Installation was pretty easy and took about fifteen minutes. The stand itself is pretty sturdy, and while you can install it by yourself, it's probably easier with two people, one holding the stand up while the other attaches it to the bike. It sits up pretty high, so that a book is at about eye level when you're sitting on the bike.Regarding regular books, it was a bit hard to read small text with it, and I found it easier just to hold the book in my hands to read. Of course that means you can't use the hand portion of the bike, which defeats the purpose of using this particular bike in the first place unless... 5/5 Ashlem (United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
