    0 3/5 Low (New York) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Schwinn Pillow Top Cruiser Bicycle Seat (Sports) Out of the box it seems very soft & cushy but once I installed it after about 10mins it felt hard. I took it off and took a better look at it, Theres 2 screws that you need to loosen up to make this seat work better, I guess the factory overtightens them to be sure, but by doing this they totally compress the rubber springs making the suspension/cushion useless. I just loosened the screws and now the seat works 100% it was $$ well spent. All & all a pretty good seat with plenty of cushioning. Just wanted to pass this tip off 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 22, 2009

    Comfy - even for an ectomorph

    I'm as close to a classic ectomorph as it comes (6'2", 165lbs) so I don't have a lot of -ahem- padding back there. Let me tell you this seat is bliss! It's wide and soft and also narrow in all the right places. The seat is not soft like a pillow top mattress, rather I would best describe it as supportive - firm but still plenty padded. There are rubber bumpers in the back which do a good job absorbing the bumps, even with a hardtail bike. There is a small channel down the middle to protect your man parts, but it's not as deep as other seats so if man part protection is really high on the list, you might look elsewhere. Otherwise, its really comfy and I can pedal for miles in this saddle.I was quite surprised to find it ships with a seat clamp that fits 7/8inch seat posts (BMX style). If your bike is more modern, chuck this out and clamp to the seat rails directly. The seat rails are rather short so there's not a lot of fore-aft adjustment possible.The... 5/5 Cajtar (SoCal, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Schwinn Airdyne AD4 Upright Exercise Bike

    Rating (250 reviews):

    Schwinn

    This enduring classic is built to last.

    The Schwinn Airdyne Upright is a classic - virtually unchanged for at least 20 years (I used them at Columbia University's gym back in college in the early 80s in essentially their current form). The lack of evolution speaks to their excellent functionality. The Airdyne differs from most exercise bikes in having a large air-resistance flywheel instead of a smaller heavier flywheel with mechanical friction or an electric magnetic resistance flywheel that needs power and the electronics head to operate it. The advantages are fourfold: 1) the larger flywheel is exceptionally smooth, 2) the air resistance is naturally graduated (i.e. the faster you pedal, the greater the wind resistance and the harder it gets to pedal). This resistance approach means you organically find your level by pacing - with no need to ever set resistance manually. 3) The air resistance flywheel kicks up wind that cools you as you work out. 4) Mechanical resistance devices tend to wear out first - becoming... 4/5 Joshua G.

    Excellent product, but....

    Surprisingly, my Airdyne was delivered disassembled, and with no accompanying assembly instructions of any kind. I am no mechanical genius, and this didn't look like a job for the faint of heart in the first place. Unable to obtain any assembly instructions from either Amazon or Schwinn, I tried a local bike shop. For an $85 fee, they assembled my machine. When I inquired about the lack of assembly instructions, they told me that this was a deliberate omission, and that self-assembly invalidates the product warranty. I can't vouch for the absolute accuracy of all I was told, but I feel that I should at least sound a faint alarm.

    still the standard

    I bought one of these in 1988. It was already -quite- old, (probably from 1977, the first year it was made, which means the 30 year warrantee is -still- in effect!), and not well taken care of. Whatever abuse it took only made it a little dirty. It's almost 2007, and it's still working perfectly. The all-steel construction has kept it repair-free while newer machines go into the garbage. Different year models come with different monitors, so I won't go into that, but the machine itself is always the same: No shifting. The fan-resistance increases with pedaling speed. Arms and legs contribute whatever proportions of the total effort you desire, a very natural intuitive movement. For arms only, there's a foot-rest, for legs only, just hang your arms at your sides. (The Airdyne is not a bicycle, not a 'spinner', it is a thing unto itself, but unless road-bike technique is an issue, it will do more than spinning can do for your fitness.)The warrantee, or any other right to complaint,... 5/5 .

    0 5/5 aloekat - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: OLD SCHOOL STYLE BICYCLE SPEEDOMETER FITS 26-27in. WHEELS (Misc.) I put my speedometer on a Walmart 26" Schwinn cruiser. I also have a china 2 stroke motor on it, my bike is a lot of fun to ride and this speedo helps set the pace as I ride to work everyday. The vibration from the motor does not affect it at all and I was surprised how steady the needle is, even going down hill at 25 mph. I cruise about 20 mph and peddle about 5 mph. Only 50 miles on the speedo so far but seems to operate dependably. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 4, 2013

    No instructions. Pedal fell off 2nd time riding it.

    The bike looks nice. It comes with a lot of bells (literally) and whistles. I was super into this bike when I first got it set-up. It's simple and light. I wish it came with some instructions for assembly, but it's far enough along that the pictures on this page should be enough for you to figure it out.The bad stuff: the bike scratches super easily, but I kind of want it to look a little beat-up to deter thieves, so that might not be a bad thing. What REALLY bothers me is that today, the 2nd day of my ownership, the pedal fell off. The hole in the crank is just totally worn out, when I tried figuring out what happen, a bunch of fine filings came out, as if the thread was just totally demolished. Installing it felt totally fine, so either I'm secretly mega-strong or the metal is junk. Considering that the pedals are the brakes on this thing, having them suddenly fall off is pretty distressing! I'll be contacting critical about getting replacement crank, preferably from... 2/5 Adalberto N. Garza (MIT, Hell) - See all my reviews, June 30, 2013

    I Expected To RIDE This Bike

    I was SO excited to get this bike!!!It's beautiful and affordable (compared to the real deal) but NOT FUNCTIONAL. I am currently sitting in my apartment absolutely pissed because I was half way through assembly when I realized the Left Pedal and it's receiver were stripped! I can't screw in the pedal, and upon closer inspection it looked like it was used before - stripped down with black scuffs and dirt chunks on it.After inspecting the bike I realized this - some of the parts looked brand spanking new, and others not so much. For one, the pedal that I couldn't install was obviously pre-used and pre-stripped. The tires were slightly worn with black, dirty streaks on the center of the tread.Additionally, the front fender was bent and missing the installation hardware. The bonus reflectors they included were also missing all of the installation hardware.I know this isn't a million dollar bike, but I expect some quality control, all new parts, and most... 2/5 CriticalCyclesTEAM, August 7, 2013

    Great... before it broke

    I really enjoyed this bike while it functioned properly, but that was a short period of time. Two months after buying the bike, I noticed the pedal come loose while riding it. When I pulled over to take a look, I found that the threads had completely worn away. The pedal could have totally fallen out while I was riding it. Since the pedals are also the braking mechanism, this presents a very dangerous situation. Critical Cycles was of no help when I contacted them. The bike looks great, but unfortunately it's ultimately a low quality product from what seems to be a low quality manufacturer.UPDATE: Critical Cycles reversed course and decided to ship a new crank set. I very much appreciate their decision, and they always responded to problems quickly. Still, the malfunction put me in a dangerous position and cannot be completely rectified by a part replacement because there was potential for serious damage. Critical Cycles seems to be trying hard, but at the end of the day... 4/5 LI (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    I was able to do all of this by myself (I'm a women) via the easy to follow instructions

    First off, I want to start by saying I was very surprised to not be able to find one single review on this bike before I bought it! I actually picked mine up from Walmart (of all places) this weekend. If you google this bike, you will see that it goes for $988.00! However, I bought mine for $247.00! Since there were no reviews on this item, I based my decision to buy it mostly on the fact that it was going for $988.00 on line and the fact that if I got it home and it wasn't satisfactory, I could simply bring it back to the store for a full refund. So I went for it. It came in a big box (but it fit into a full sized vehicle trunk), so obviously I knew there would be some assembly to this. Please note, the box was VERY heavy, and I as a woman could NOT lift the box in and out of my car and even struggled a bit getting the frame out of the box by myself. The main frame and fly wheel all came already assembled in the box.
