    Schwinn

    The next iteration of Schwinn's Aerdyne bike is a good one. High quality and attention to detail. Comparison to the AD4.

    We have used the Schwinn Aerdyne AD4 in our home for about three years. I'll start with a review specific to the AD6, and then provide some observations about how it differs form the AD4.SHIPPINGThe AD6 came in a "Shipping-proof" box. Very well-packaged and secure. It is very heavy, of course, so be prepared to have help brining it in the house. The AD6 arrived completely unscathed. Not a single scratch or dinge on any elements of the bike. All parts were there and easy to unpack. Great job on the packing and shipping.ASSEMBLYA very straightforward once-person job (but note that the instructions recommend that two people set it up). It took me about an hour from opening the box to using the bike. All parts are clearly labeled "left: or "right", there are just a few screws, bolts, and washers that re sealed in a labeled hardware card, and all required tools are provided. Holes for bolts lined up perfectly. Schwinn clearly made ease of... 5/5 Mark B - See all my reviews, November 4, 2012

    SCHWINN AIRDYNE AD6 IS AWESOME !

    This exercise bike is amazing! I had meniscus knee surgery 1 year ago and it is still not right. So it has been difficult to workout at the gym. On this bike you use your arms as well as your legs which takes pressure off of my knee. My arms and chest are sore my first week but that will go away. My mom had the original Airdyne when I was a kid and so I was happy to find that they still make it. This model apparently is their newest for 2012/2013. When I called customer service they had no idea it even existed. I guess corporate does not communicate with customer service or it is that new? But the lady was very helpful and found all the information I needed. I paid $721 including tax. My 2 local sporting good stores only had the 'Evo' for $750, $58 for tax and $200 for shipping and assembly. If you have 'PRIME' with Amazon you get free shipping, that alone would pay for Prime plus some. It is manufactured in China but the Schwinn Quality (now owned by Nautilus or Bowflex or Universal,... 5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    AD6 design flaw - hand grips too far away - not for shorter people

    Before I purchased the Schwinn Airdyne AD6, I did my homework. I read the product literature as well as the mainly favorable reviews. It sounded great, just perfect for my needs. I tried to find it in a local store so I could see how it felt before ordering it, but wasn't able to. The service I received from Amazon was top-notch, as usual. Unfortunately, though, after the bike was assembled I discovered I could not reach the hand grips when the arms are in the fully-extended position (I'm 5'4"). And there are no adjustments provided to address this issue (adjusting the seat height doesn't solve the problem). I have to conclude that Schwinn/Nautilus does not test its designs on a range of real people. Very disappointing, especially since the AD6 seems to be an excellent piece of exercise equipment in most other respects. This same user-height-related issue likely applies to the other Schwinn Airdyne bikes as well -- the AD2, Evo Comp, and the AD4.4/17/13 UPDATE:... 3/5 Mirage - 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?)

    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?)

    Works great, very sturdy

    I use this to hold my iPad while I'm exercising, and it works great for that. Even with the case on my iPad, it fits fine in the rack. It's solid as a rock and is well-built.As noted, it takes 3 hands to put together. I installed the arms to the bike first (not too tightly) and then installed the rack to the arms. The problem I ran into was trying to hold the arm, the spacer, and the adjuster lever while pressing up on the adjuster lever and spacer to get the bolt through the adjuster lever and the opposite side of the arm (you'll see what I mean if you get one). I never could exert enough force upward on the spacer and adjuster while trying to keep the arm from moving and also threading the bolt. Since I'm the only one who rides this bike, I really didn't see any need for the adjuster levers. They allow the rack to be moved for different riders. I solved my dilemma by leaving the adjuster levers off. This made it SO much easier to thread the bolt through both sides of the... 4/5 Jon W (Missouri) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
