Recumbent Exercise Bike Review | Schwinn 240 Low Impact Home Cardio Cycle

An upgrade to the bestselling 220 and 230 models, the Schwinn 240 is a feature-rich, high-quality recumbent bike with among the highest consumer satisfaction ratings we’ve seen in a stationary exercise bike.

The Schwinn 240 is an uncommonly quiet recumbent bike with a compact design, smooth, comfortable ride and a perimeter weighted flywheel simulating the feel of a more traditional outdoor bike.

Features include a 20-pound flywheel, 16 resistance levels, 17 programs, adjustable seat, and both telemetry and contact heart rate monitoring. Schwinn Advantage workout tracking lets you easily set fitness goals and measure your progress right on the console.

This is a sturdy, well-built piece of equipment that's not easy to move from room to room -- choose your workout spot before unpacking and assembling. Assembly will take about two hours.

Another minor criticism is that the written instructions are not very detailed and programming the various functions may require some guess work.

A recumbent bike of this quality is a good investment for those with with back problems and other conditions that require comfort  and a padded ergonomic seat with lumbar support.
