Schwinn airdyne bike and heart rate!?

Would I be able to get my heart rate to like 80 to 90% of my max HR and keep it there for 40 min with an airdyne. Does it provide really intense exercise like a spin bike and can you stand on it like a spin bike. What are your thoughts on this bike and its workout intensity?


I think you should go with Schwinn Airdyne Upright Exercise Bike Upright exercise bike with unique air resistance system Air system offers as much resistance as you can handle Dual-action arm handles work upper and lower body Console tracks time, distance, calories, RPM, and more Measures 22.5 x 48 x 50 inches (W x H x D); weighs 96 pounds

Spin bikes are made to be able to stand up and pedal if that is what you want to do that is the best choice.
g-man | Jan 11, 2011
The Airdyne is a well built and effective exercise machine. There should be no problem for you to get into the 80 to 90% range with sufficient effort on your part, (i.e. faster peddling). But I can say from experience that you cannot stand up on an Airdyne while peddling. That's also true for most trainers since the bike is secured to the trainer at the rear axle there's no means of rocking the bike which is necessary to be comfortable when standing out of the saddle. The Airdyne presents even more problems with the handle bars moving back and forth.

What's the best upright exercise bike on the market?

I think it's Keiser, but maybe someone has a better idea? I want to buy a stationary upright exercise bike for home, but I'm having trouble finding a used Keiser bike for sale in my area. Is there another brand that's just as good or better?


The Schwinn Airdyne or Aerodyne or soemthing like that has been a staple of exercise bikes for awhile. Assuming you want an exercise bike, and not a Spin bike

    Best Full-Body Bike Workout for Your Money

    My doctor diagnosed me with bad knees last month and recommended that I get more bicycle exercise to strengthen them. I usually prefer full body exercises, such as an elliptical. However, the doctor told me bicycle exercise was best because it puts my knee at a 90 degree angle, whereas ellipticals only achieve 20-30 degrees. I looked at other exercise bikes, but disapproved all of them since they only worked the lower body. Luckily, Schwinn's great reputation in quality exercise bikes helped me find this one. Here are the pros and cons:Pros:-Full body workout that strengthens knees (like an elliptical, but better for knees)-Low cost (I paid only $399)-Easy assembly (took just 30 minutes--$200 savings from other Airdynes which require professional assembly)-Digital workout display shows time, calories, distance, speed, and rpm--I love how it cycles through them automaticaly every 30 seconds-Kicks up wind which helps you stay cool-Not... 5/5 S.

    Love this Bike - Great Price

    Great Purchase. I Spent a lot of time looking and comparing reviews before purchasing this bike. I was torn between the wind resistance bikes and the basic battery operated resistance bikes. I ordered this one, received it within a week and it took, literally, 10 minutes for my boyfriend and I to set it up.He is right at the weight limit (250) and were worried that the bike would shift side to side while riding but it doesn't at all! It's really sturdy and its a GREAT workout! I could only do 15 minutes for the first few days and was completely out of breath (and definetly felt it the next day).I love that there is 2 ways to use it: Upper body only (Arms/back and chest)with your feet on the footrests, or upper and lower body together. When your legs get tired, you can always put them on the foot rests for a minute and work only your arms."Con's"I have only had the bike for a couple days and there is only 2 "con's" I can think of is:1.

    Compact machine; excellent work out

    Ordered this bike from Amazon last Fri; received it Sat. Well packed with all necessary tools/hardware. We are not mechanical, but it went together very easily and quickly (30 min). One person could have assembled it, but it was easier with two. Hardware is well machined and everything went together smoothly, so there was no frustration. Assembly instructions were very clear; excellent illustrations. As another reviewer mentioned, the hardware for attaching the handle bars was already affixed to the place where the handle bars attached. The instruction book should have said, but another reviewer gave the heads-up on that, which was helpful. It is sturdy and well designed. I can workout in boot-cut jeans and there is nothing to catch your pantleg, and I can work out barefoot or in houseshoes (probably not recommended, but if you have only a few minutes to be on the machine, it works). You can vary your workout, doing only the handle bars to work the upper body. You can push... 5/5 Glen Grossman (Edmond, Oklahoma) - See all my reviews, January 9, 2012

    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 Berela (Duke City, NM) - 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.

    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 Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Stamina

    Smooth, quite, good workout

    Just put together today. Before ordering, I checked out several exercise bikes in retail outlets. Couldn't find this model, but saw similar "air bikes" at Sport Authority Dick's, Sears and really liked them as a class, ended up ordering this Stamina model from Hayneedle. This bike is similar to the popular Schwinn air bike which costs about $175.00 more. A few differences. The fan is about 2/3rds the size of the Schwinn, the length of each bike is about 50 inches. The total weight of the two bikes (this one is lighter) is about 10 pounds difference. Also this has a plastic fan, the Schwinn is metal. It is inside a heavy steel cage, so should be no problem. Unlike some other brands does not throw a lot of air in your face. It does generate plenty of air current, enough to keep you cool, once you pedal harder but not so hard that it gets annoying.First impressions: The Stamina is well made, frame is tube steel, has a over sized seat, which is comfortable enough, after all it... 4/5 William Schlake - See all my reviews, September 23, 2011

    Not as happy as I wished I was..........

    I have mixed comments on this bike. I bought it specifically because it had both the leg and arm movements. I had shoulder surgery and the arm movement was very helpful to keeping the muscles and joint loose post-surgery. For that, I love this bike!Problem is (I read reviews that discussed this issue prior to my purchase, but went with it anyway) between the construction of the moving arms and the foot pedals, we are always having to tighen the nuts & bolts, or they constantly come loose - a foot pedal has actually come off while I was riding! We are tightening them so much that I feel we might eventually strip them, making the entire bike unusable. Also, the left pedal action makes very loud squeeky noises (I feel the noise in my foot) that are very annoying, causing me to pedal different than normal to lessen this problem.These problems are not acceptable, in my opinion. I did contact Stamina direct via email, and never heard back from them. Their bad,... 2/5 Lori Pape (Tollhouse, CA USA) - See all my reviews, September 16, 2012

    Great Less Expensive Alternative to Airdyne

    I just bought this bike and it is exactly what I hoped it would be. I was looking for a used Schwinn Airdyne exercise bike but found the Airgometer new for the same price as a used Airdyne. It took me about 2 hours to assemble (I am not generally mechanically inclined) and the directions were fairly simple to follow. I especially appreciated the many diagrams and descriptions of parts - they really helped when my 3-year-old dumped the tray of nuts and bolts all over the floor. All tools necessary for assembly were also included in the box. The fan is plastic rather than metal, and I think this makes it quieter than the Airdyne, with all of the same great benefits of the Airdyne. It feels very solid once put together and I'm very happy with my purchase. The ride is smooth and the monitor displays time, miles, and calories burned. It doesn't have a spot for my mp3 player, but I've just been attaching it to the water bottle holder with a strap and it's worked out well.

    I'll have to come back after a while using this and add info, but after about a month, I am very pleased.Now, I was one of those folks who, back in the late 90s, was really into spinning. This bike is pretty much what I remember of the original spinning bikes.Construction: seems pretty solid so far. Looking at the parts, the connections and so forth, I don't see anything I expect to become a major problem in the long-term.Computer: Useless and annoying (it cycles through the functions and you can't pause it), but completely unnecessary.

Get on there, push yourself, adjust the tension as needed, and watch a half-hour TV show, which leads to...Noise: This seems, from what I've read, to be a big issue for other people with other bikes.

    Very pleased

    My husband and I are quite pleased with this bike, its very sturdy and we had no shipping issues. We've had it for two weeks now. As another reviewer noted its quiet and smooth. I can ride it comfortable, but so can my husband which is great because he is 6'4" and fits on this bike very comfortably(not true of all bikes!). It took 2 of us 15 minutes from bringing it in the house to riding it(including clean up of the shipping box). My Dad also bought one and put it together himself and said it took 30 minutes and he felt it was easy. One thing I love about the bike is there are no places where my 2 year old can stick his fingers into and become injured when I ride it! You do have to change the resistance manually which I could see bothering some people, but it doesn't bother me. Its not difficult to do and you don't have to get off the bike to do it, although you do need to slow down a bit.

    Poor Quality Control

    I ordered one of these Schwinn IC2's for my wife who loves spin classes. I didn't expect the quality you find with professional models but after returning two units I've given up on Schwinn.The box arrived intact but upon opening it became evident that the foam packing was not up to the task. Most of it was crushed and there were scratches and dents in the bike. I assembled the bike anyway and instantly noticed a grinding noise. I checked the chain tension and found it was too loose. I removed the chain guard and tightened the chain but the grinding persisted. I called Schwinn customer service and they guided me through checking the chain tension to ensure it allowed about 3/8" deflection. Everything was good but the problem remained. Next they had me completely loosen both adjustment bolts and tighten one turn at a time. (I achieve the proper tension when there was about 1.9 cm between the opening and the bracket the bolt head pressed against.)

(I achieve the proper tension when there was about 1.9 cm between the opening and the bracket the bolt head pressed against.) This still didn't fix the...

    Pleased with the overall parts quality. a little noisy initially

    The bike arrived 5 days after my order was placed, well packed and with good instructions. A large scary label fell out of the instructions that said "This product contains chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. This Product is not a toy and it's not designed/intended to be used by children 12 years of age or younger." This prompts me to want to call the manufacturer to find out which part(s) they are talking about. I took off a star because of this and the noise coming from under the shroud covering the main mechanism. Not the best way to find this information out after the product has been delivered and unpacked. I hope I don't have to return it. (UPDATE: I called IMPEX and they said the seat material is the culprit if it is eaten. They are required to make the statement by law). I expect many modern devices have similar cautionary notes, most in very small print. IMPEX sent me a copy of the Prop 65 explanation. It... 5/5 John E.

    well made and comfortable to use

    It is not often that a self-assembly product comes with fasteners that are separately binned according to the assembly step # AND also includes all of the tools that are need, but that is what this bike provides (i.e., you could assemble it on a deserted island). It even comes with 2 AA batteries for the computer. The bike appears to be designed for the long-haul. For example, there are several places in the assembly where 4 bolts are used instead of 2, although 2 would seem to be adequate. Sitting on the bike gives a confident feeling of sturdiness and balance. I purposely leaned in all directions but never felt like I was anywhere close to tipping over. I typically use the bike for 20-30 minutes at a time. The ergonomics are very good in that I can end a session without having any unusual cramps/strains in my body. Although the seat is large and fairly soft I find myself shifting around on the seat about every 5 minutes to appease my bottom. That may just be me, but I think that a... 5/5 00harry00 - See all my reviews This review is from: Marcy Air 1 Fan Exercise Bike (Sports) It is not often that a self-assembly product comes with fasteners that are separately binned according to the assembly step # AND also includes all of the tools that are need, but that is what this bike provides (i.e., you could assemble it on a deserted island).

    Buy It You'll Like It

    This is a Great Bike at a Great Price (under $300). I am 57 years old 5'11 and 190lbs. The Bike fits me fine and provides excellent exercise at what ever level you want to push it too. I decided to drop my Club Membership and Build a Home Gym, and the Marcy Air 1 Fan Bike is my favorite piece. It rides smooth and is a snap to put together by yourself, with most of the tools you need to assemble it included. I Cranked the front foot rests down hard with a Crescent Wrench, but basically its a snap to put together, about 45 minutes for me by myself.The Bike combines an upper and lower body work together, you can not turn off the upper arm extensions, so if you just want a true bicycle workout, its not the bike for you. You can of course just sit upright and pedal without engaging your arms, but that is not as ergonomic.

    Great bike, but be wary of the seat

    This exercise bike is a good value for the money. It is quite sturdy for an inexpensive bike, works well, and is easy to put together. I also like the handlebars, so my upper body can be getting a workout while I'm pedaling instead of just my legs. I got this bike because I needed to rehab my knee after having microfracture surgery. The only reason I can't give this bike 5 stars is because of the hardness of the seat. Even though I purchased the Sunlite Gel Bicycle Seat Cover (which Amazon suggested in the Frequently Purchased Together section of the bike's webpage) at the same time that I purchased the bike, it barely makes a difference. After 30 minutes of riding, I am literally forced to get off of the bike. I also put a thick towel on top of the Gel Seat Cover, and even with that extra measure, my butt and family jewels are rendered numb from the hardness of the seat.

    In all honesty im 6 Feet Tall and its fine i don't see any problem with it, i read the other review about "it's for midgets" and that not true. I have it on the highest seat setting and my knees still don't hit the bars or my chest lol. Its a great bike... i would only recommend getting the gel seat cover they recommend to get, i think its called "Cloud Nine" Other than that your good to go. I also read that it's a bit loud and that it makes it difficult to hear the TV at the same time your using the Bike. Well i have mine right in front of the TV and yes the bike makes some noise....but nothing to stress over, all you have to do is raise the volume a little and it's good,the bike isn't that loud. Now lets get to assembling part,oh wait i forgot to tell you there barely is any assembling to do, i put it together in 30 minutes and the instructions were good to me. The only thing i found tricky was putting on the left pedal, it screws on the opposite way of the right pedal. The only... 5/5 V. Dibartolo (Brooklyn) - See all my reviews, March 4, 2010

    For Real Men, With Real Butts and Real Plumbing

    I bought a Raleigh GRUV bicycle a few months ago so I could do some riding with my girlfriend. The GRUV is an odd looking machine, but it was absolutely the most comfortable bike I test rode. Having not been on a bicycle for over 25 years, I wanted to build some endurance before I got together with my gal for a pleasant weekend ride. After my short "practice" rides in the evenings, I suffered from some mild but noticeable numbness in unmentionable, "manly" areas. I never suffered from this when I was a youngster, so I figured it would pass after I got used to riding again. I figured wrong. I went for my much anticipated weekend "date ride" (about 10 miles worth of nice, paved trails). By the end of the trip, the "comfortable" stock seat on that bike had caused many miserable and painful "sensations". So I did some research and came-up with the Schwinn No Pressure Bicycle Seat.

    Kind between your legs but better for high handlebar bikes

    I got this seat for my mountain bike because I realized that I wasn't a hardcore mountain biker who wants the lightest seat possible with best control; I'm a casual city rider who hates pain between the legs and worries about his man parts. So I was looking for a comfort seat. I compared this with the seats that have two pads and have glowing reviews from people with prostate problems and this was, well, cheaper. It also looks a bit more comfy.This seat is comfortable to sit on. Very comfortable. Like an office chair or better. If all we did on bikes was sit, this would be the best seat money can buy. However, we also pedal on bikes, and that creates a bit of a problem. Specifically, as you pedal your legs push down on the front edge of the seat on the downstroke and after a while it hurts. Normal bikes (not the cruiser kind) have the center of the pedals right under the seat. That's fine if your seat is a narrow ridge that is squashing your man parts and your... 4/5 G.

    FANTASTIC!!!!

    WOW!! This seat is great! I had an ileostomy about a year ago, and during the recovery process I gained a lot of weight. This weight, coupled with a very tender backside, meant that I needed an extremely comfortable seat. I saw a seat at Wal-Mart that had springs, gel, and was nine inches wide. When I pushed on it, it seemed like a very comfortable seat so I purchased it. After installing it, I rode approximately two blocks and had to get off, needless to say, I returned it, and purchased this one. This seat is truly a godsend! I don't know how they make it so comfortable, ( there are no springs that I can see ) but it is like sitting on a heavily padded bench. It also adjusts front to back, like a car seat, once it's set, tightening the mounting nuts locks it securely in place. I found this feature handy due to the fact that I'm over six feet tall and needed the leg room.

    The Real Thing!

    To give a little perspective to my review here is a short introduction to why I bought the Assault Air Bike. I am a bike fanatic and love riding my mountain bike, usually a few times a week. The great thing about a mountain bike is that it exercises your upper body as well as lower body (unlike a road bike). I have a top end spinning bike but never liked it much. In the vacation cabin we visit every winter the owners have a very old Schwinn Airdyne Pro in the basement. I always thought it just looked like a low tech waste of time. This year I hopped on and WOW I was in love! It was a full body exercise like an eliptical machine, but I was riding a bike and it didn't hurt my back the way elipticals do for me.I started my quest to find an air bike.

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?" 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 20, 2010
