1. The seatback and saddle are VERY HARD plastic. If you're bottom and back don't fit perfectly into the dimensions of the seat, you are in for an uncomfortable ride. After my first hour-long ride, my lower back was left bruised. I solved this problem by using two folded towels to as cusions (see photos).
2. The electronic console is not very intuitive. Maybe I'm used to riding the bikes at our gym which allow me to select a program, level and time with a few quick button pushes, but I find myself having to reset and start over because the controls are not marked very well (arrow UP for next choice, or arrow RIGHT? Whoops, wrong one. Start over.)
3. I'm 6'4" and the seat does not go back far enough. I'd guess this bike is best suited for people 6'2" and under.
4. When I get up to speed and hit a challenging level, the seat creaks loudly. There is no way to tighten any screws or bolts to quiet it down.
5. There are two plastic pieces that are supposed to "snap" into place (See photos). The cap over the post just under the seat does snap on, but if you brush it while mounting the bike, it will go flying across the room. The cap the hikes a joint just under the seatback just rests atop it. If you move the bike or brush against it, it will crash loudly to the floor. I can't believe the designers didn't put a couple screw attachments on these pieces. Trust me -- this will bug you every time you use the bike.
6. After three rides, the left pedal strap broke (see photos). I now have to put the strap on a smaller setting, so my entire foot doesn't fit on the pedal properly.
That said, I only paid $349 for the bike and aside from the creaking, the actual crankcase and mechanism are fairly quiet. I really want to give it three stars, but the compromises this bike demands could very easily have been engineered out during the design phase. They provide just the kind of excuses many of us will use to NOT get on the bike.
If you plan to use this as an occasional exercise option and only for short spurts, then you may be satisfied with the Schwinn 230. But if you ride for more than a half-hour, the seat will most likely leave your back and bottom aching.
Hope this helps.
Unfortunately the bike arrived damaged. The plastic cover for the flywheel had two screw brackets broken off. In addition the display console had circular scratches around each of the mounting screws, indicating to me a refurbished console. I contacted Amazon and they suggested returning the bike on their nickel and they would ship a new one. Unfortunately I had bike parts all over the basement after lugging this baby downstairs. Repacking and hauling it up again was more than my 72 year old body really wanted to handle. Amazon suggested contacting Schwinn for new parts under the bikes warranty. Reluctantly I did, fearing the usual gut searing pain you usually get from companies when trying to exercise warranty issues.
Boy, was I wrong! Schwinn could not have been more responsive! They immediately checked to see if the cover and console parts were in stock and they were. They would be shipped that day with delivery in 4 or 5 days. In addition they were sending out technicians to install the parts within the next two weeks after we settled on a mutually agreeable date and time! I didn't think this was necessary but the Schwinn rep insisted! The rep also suggested I put the bike together and use it until the the parts and techs arrived which I did (90 minute assembly, tops).
That, my friends, is what customer service should be. The bike is everything I thought it would be and with the help of Amazon and Schwinn (Nautilus) customer service, the experience was a breeze. Kudos to everyone.
