Schwinn 140 Upright Exercise Bike Review
The Schwinn® 140 upright bike utilises your core muscles to balance your body weight and it provides all this in with a compact design. As with other Schwinn models, the 140 provides excellent comfort during exercise by way of oversized ergonomic pedals and an adjustable console, handlebars and an extra-wide seat.
The BioDyne™ performance provides a real road feel by use of a perimeter-weighted flywheel. This creates a smooth, consistent workout, while the oversized stabilizers and levellers give a solid workout platform making sure the bike stays in one place while you pedal.
Some of the other features of the bike include:
• 17 workout programs, including 8 course profiles, target heart rate, 2 user profiles with custom workouts
• Telemetry-enabled, integrated grip heart rate system for easy fitness monitoring
• 16 resistance levels
• Water bottle holder and magazine rack
• Wheels for easy transport around the house
• A 10 year frame, 2 years parts, 1 year electronics, 3 months parts wear and 3 months labor manufacturers warranty
The first thing to say about the bike is that the assembly was surprisingly easy. The instructions were clear and the design of the bike is simple enough to be put together with minimum drama. Once constructed, the bike is extremely solid with no squeaks, rattles, or loose parts.
The pre-programmed are pretty standard, however the ability to create your own is pretty neat.
Very impressive is the noise, or should that be the lack of noise, created by the bike when in use.
All in all this is an affordable, quality bike that does just what you want it to do and does it all practically silently.
Here’s what one owner said about the bike:
This is an item that I will keep for years, possibly decades, to come. I love the durable quality of the finished product combined with the high-tech appearance of the back lit screen and the ability to create up to 2 different User Profiles to track workout progress….really it’s a wonderful piece of exercise machinery and I’m glad I made the investment in a quality product.
