This bike is very solid and quiet.

I would recommend and will buy another Schwinn bike in the future if this one remains durable as it appears to be.
Clyde Dearman
The bike was easy to put together and I did it in a little over an hour.

Easy to setup and use. Very sturdy piece of equipment. Gives one a good workout. Comfortable and useful like some of the thousand dollar bikes. Slightly better than Schwinn 240 with additional programs and bigger console to rest your reading materials or Kindle/ipad etc. I was originally looking to buy Schwinn 240 but since 240 was getting discontinued decided to buy Schwinn 250 to make full use of warranty and service. I could not find a better price for this in local stores, Amazon had it delivered in three days with free shipping and no tax.

UPDATE Jan 20th, 2012 - I have been using this for a while now and it is awsome machine. I also use kindle fire while using it and this seems to be an excellent combo if you want to loose weight. I read books, magzines, watch movies, listen to music, check email and surf web and time flies by. I only intend to use this bike for 30 minutes but while using kindle fire I seldom finish in less than an hour. I am able to see difference in my weight in just weeks.

Schwinn 250 Recumbent Exercise Bike

Executive Summary: The Schwinn 250 is a decent set-up for the price. Check out the manual before you buy, especially the section describing the Heart Rate Control.

Summary: The Schwinn 250 is a pretty good recumbent exercise bike. I'm a little dissapointed in how the features list translates into actual features. The "3 polar heart rate programs" doesn't mean three seperate heart rate controlled programs. The manual, which you can find online, has only ONE program with THREE levels: 60%-70%, 70%-80%, and 80%-90%. I do not agree with the definition that a LEVEL is a PROGRAM! Cheaters! On the console, I also only find one HRC program. In my testing the heart rate control does work as advertised, the resistance adjusts to have my heart rate remain in the zone.

Long Version: I upgraded from a Vision 2100 recumbent exercise bike to the Schwinn 250 recumbent excersise bike. I choose the Schwinn 250 based on the reviews and the features list. Below I will talk about my previous recumbent exercise bike experience, how I use the recumbent, why I picked the Schwinn 250 and my first impressions with the Schwinn 250. After those I will discuss things I've learned while using the recumbent for a few months.

Me: I wore out the previous recumbent. I bought the Vision new in 1997. Some years I used it a lot and other years not so much. In 2008 I came up with a plan to start bicycling again that included achieving a fitness level before buying a bicycle. In 2009 I implemented the plan and completed 183 exercise sessions, at a minimum of 30 minutes per session.

I have a really "bad" back, and have had to give-up walking and going to the gym. By trial and error I eliminated every type of exercise that increased the pain. While I am not exactly "in love" with exercise, it has always kept my weight under control. And,I discovered without a regular form of exercise I didn't feel as well as I had, and I started to gain weight. In desperation, I tried my friends Schwinn 240. Using a recumbent bike, didn't hurt my back. It had many good qualities, but the seat wasn't quite as comfortable as I would have liked. I came to Amazon to order the 240, and was excited when I read there was a new bike, the Schwinn Recumbent model 250. I immediately ordered it. I was pleased when Amazon notified me that I could expect the bike between November 25, and December 13, 2011. The bike was delivered at 9:30 a.m. November 25, 2011. The box was in good condition & the bike parts appeared perfect.My husband immediately began assembly. It took about 3 1/2 hours, he followed the clear instructions, & having the parts individually labeled was an amazing help. I could not wait to try it out. I got on the bike moments after he had completed assembly, I found the seat to be exceptionally comfortable, it was enough wider that my husand could use it also. The higher seat back supported my back better than I could have dreamed. The seat also has a better comfort factor than the Schwinn 240. It operated so quietly that I could listen to t.v. or have a conversation and not miss a word. When I got up the next morning I felt I had discovered a miracle, my back hadn't gone into spasm during the night. I used it again today and I love, love it even more. Thank you Amazon.com for carrying quality products. It was an added bonus not to pay for shipping the bike Thanks again Amazon.com..

This bike is built to last. All the parts are beefy. The MP3 port is really not what it is ad. as. All it is a 2 speaker port. No amp or vol adj. I have to have my MP3 turned all the way up to hear it. But the bike is extremely quiet. The only thing that you hear is when it changes the resistance levels and that is a very quiet motor sound. The display large and easy to read. If you have the display tilted all the way forward it gets in the way of the handle bars that are up front. You will not be able to put this in front of you tv and be able to see it since the display is right there. The fan is kind of a joke. It moves very little air even on high. But i guess that something is better than nothing.
The assembly went smoothly took a little over an hour but I did it by myself. The bike is heavy so you may need a helper when unboxing\assy. The seat adjustment knob have to be lossened all the way before the seat will slide. I would have changed this with something that is a little quicker (coarser threads).
None of these little drawbacks takes away from the quality of the bike. I would still recommend this to anybody that wants a recumbent bike.
