    Schwinn AD6 Airdyne Exercise Bike (Black)

    Rating (142 reviews):
    (4.1/5)
    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 Jason Dude - 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?)

    0 5/5 Cris Caccavale - See all my reviews This review is from: Schwinn Adult Exercise Bike Seat Cover (Toy) I ride my bike to and from work at least 3-4 days a week. When I started it was very rough. I was in pain from riding more than a half hour at a time. Since I bought this seat, I have been able to ride much longer. It doesn't completely remove the pain from riding long distances/times, but it certainly helps. I have used it on several 50+ mile trips, and it has held up very well. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 1, 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 dont usually write reviews but I cant help but have to write this one in order to warn other customers about this bike. I was really excited to receive this bike and now I have spent time putting it together, only to send it back, carry it to the post office and wait for a refund. Not worth it.First of all, the biggest problem was that I ordered a black bike. Everything was black except the rear tire which was the hunter green they also sell. The bike comes with the back tire assembled, so this was a big mistake on their part.There are no directions, and I knew I had to watch a video to assemble it. Okay cool...problem is that the website sends you to a bike that is not the bike I bought or even the same brand. OKAYYYYY I go on their website.

It looks great put together...if you can figure it out without any instructions. They give you a website to go to but it's a YouTube video of a some other bike from a different brand being put together. It's great looking if u can get it all together. I am still waiting to ride it as I did not receive the screw that tightens the seat in place and will have to buy one somewhere. Also, the kickstand is angled so far forward that the bike tips the other way if I try to stand it up. Oh yeah...the back fender rubs the tire so I will have to bend that. Also two reflectors didn't come with any mounts and I have two screws left over that are mismatched to each other but don't fit the bike. And....the rack is loose. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 17, 2014

    Pyramid Speedometer/Odometer Installation

    I purchased this item from Niagara Cycle Works and received it promptly. Their price was more appealing than RDS Bikes. This type of instrument was common years ago but the older ones were made of metal and had a small diameter metal wheel attached to the spokes. The disc was perforated near the outside edge and a metal gear meshed with the disc to drive the speedometer cable which in turn operated the speedometer and odometer. This made in China product is genuine plastic. While not the quality of the old American models, it operates very well and for the money I am most satisfied with it. It is easy to read while riding compared to the electronic models which can be very difficult due to light reflection. The installation is very simple. Noting a complaint regarding lack of instructions, here is how installation is done: The accessory has 3 basic parts - the head (as pictured above), the drive cable and the drive gear assembly. Starting at the bottom, the drive gear has a metal arm... 4/5 Ward Boote "Bootlegger" (Wyalusing, PA in The Heart of the Endless Mountains)) - See all my reviews, April 27, 2007

    Mounting Instructions

    After struggling for some time with the speedometer without instructions I decided to write a short instruction--I hope it will help without pictures. The main idea is that the speedometer is attached to middle right side of the handlebar and the grey round plastic part that turns inside the suspension forks of the front wheel on the right. Then just attach the short black cable and you are done. I can't believe that they dared to sell this item without instructions; therefore only three stars. Otherwise, I would have given 5 stars because it is great fun and EASY to read. And you do not have the problem that the display turns black when the sun shines on it, which can be the case with the electronic speedometers.1. Attach the speedometer with the large black plastic screw to the metal mounting bracket by aligning it with the two indentations. Make sure the speedometer is not upside down.
