    EXCELLENT AND STURDY ADDITION TO MY FITNESS ROOM

    I am a Mechanical Engineer and have been knocking around all kinds of machinery for over 60 years. The Schwinn Airdyne AD6 Exercise Bike is a solid piece of equipment. It is built to last a very long time with minimal maintenance.The package arrived in a few days undamaged and complete. It is rather heavy and would be difficult for one person to handle it without a hand truck or dolly of some kind. Assembly was easy and only took about 30 minutes total including leveling. I am 6ft and 200lbs (down from 230 recently). This bike fits me perfectly. My wife is 5' 2" and the seat adjusts to her height easily, so she is comfortable with it also.My only minor complaint was that the handlebars came with the R & L stickers on the wrong parts. I guess if you are a really tall person, you could mount them backwards and they still work just fine. I suspect that some people the complained about the handlebars being too far for their reach in other reviews may... 5/5 Mike Conyngham (New Kent, Virginia, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    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?)

    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 (US Rocky Mountians) - See all my reviews, November 4, 2012

    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?)

    Love my Airdyne Pro!

    5/5 LadyBug (Mountain View, CA United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Schwinn Airdyne Pro Exercise Bike, Silver (Sports) I recently purchased this Airdyne Pro and absolutely love it! It can be used in multiple modes to vary the workout: legs only, legs and arms, arms only, and also standing (similar to an elliptical motion). It was pretty easy to assemble and has very smooth operation. The display offers several options for workouts: interval training, time goal, calorie goal, etc. It also seems to provide a great cardio workout in less time than other exercise equipment options, possibly due to the increased resistance of the fan. I have friends/family who have been owners of several generations of Schwinn Airdyne exercise bikes, so this option for my home gym came highly recommended. I am super pleased that I selected this product! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 7, 2016

This review is from: Schwinn Airdyne Pro Exercise Bike, Silver (Sports) This is an expensive bike, but, the action is smooth and quiet compared to all the cheaper bikes I've owned. I would have given only four stars because of the price and a slight difficulty with assembly, but it came with a help line phone number and they were GREAT! I had difficulty assembling the arms and called. They walked me through a specific procedure and I had the arm on within 90 seconds. DO NOT take a hammer to try to assemble - CALL they have a specific way to mount the arms that works.
