Shipping - While this isn't directly related to the bike, our box did have minor damage, including some of the foam inside being broken. I only mention this as it relates to the boxing Schwinn uses. The bike doesn't appear to have taken any damage though in our case, so this wasn't a problem.
Build Quality/Construction - The bike seems very sturdy, and the materials are high quality as far as I can tell. The flywheel on ours seemed to have some minor knicks/imperfections upon visual inspection, but this hasn't had any negative effect on the performance of the bike. The bike was fairly easy to assemble, and took about an hour. There are parts of the assembly where having a second person helps, to hold something up while you connect the electronics, etc.
Resistance - The bike offers 25 levels of resistance, and the magnetic flywheel changes resistance so smoothly you barely notice it. The pedal motion is also really smooth and consistent, the bike's motion has a great feel to it. I can't believe it only cost me $400.
Display - The display is fairly basic, but gives the information needed. There are actually two displays, which is nice, as one can show you statistics while the other has bars to show the course or program you are doing. The 2nd display is visible even if you put a book or tablet on the holder, which is also nice, so you can still see your statistics.
Settings - There are several programs available, including ones that adjust to keep your heart rate steady. Once you select a program, you can choose a goal of calories, distance, or time. You can also set up user profiles. The profiles let it calculate your calories, etc. more carefully. Also, you can apparently upload your workouts with a USB stick to track them online, I haven't tested this feature yet.
Features - The bike has several convenient features. It has nice extra-large pedals (they don't have the problems mentioned in the other Schwinn model reviews). The seat is easily adjusted by pulling out the knob, and is large and pretty comfortable compared to other bikes I've tried. The bike also includes a cupholder, a fan that puts out decent air, and speakers which you can attach your iPod/tablet to.
Aesthetics - The bike is very pleasant to look at. The matte black finish really looks high quality, and the red accents are a nice touch. My wife isn't even ashamed to have it in our living room, which can't be said for most fitness equipment!
Sound - The bike is really quiet. One time, my wife didn't realize I had started pedaling because she couldn't hear anything from accross the room watching TV. The console does make loud beeping sounds when you push the buttons, or when you achieve a new record for distance/calories, but you can turn those off if you don't want it to make noise.
Overall, this bike is an amazing value. My wife and I both really enjoy it so far, and I would highly recommend it. We are really happy we took the risk of preordering this one instead of choosing other options we tested at several fitness equipment stores.
