He is right at the weight limit (250) and were worried that the bike would shift side to side while riding but it doesn't at all! It's really sturdy and its a GREAT workout! I could only do 15 minutes for the first few days and was completely out of breath (and definetly felt it the next day).
I love that there is 2 ways to use it: Upper body only (Arms/back and chest)with your feet on the footrests, or upper and lower body together. When your legs get tired, you can always put them on the foot rests for a minute and work only your arms.
I have only had the bike for a couple days and there is only 2 "con's" I can think of is:
1. With wind resistance bikes, the resistance increases as you pedal faster. BUT as you pedal faster, the sound of the bike increases. Makes it really hard to watch tv.
2. There is not a console for magazines, ipods, etc. (I knew this when I bought it, and it wasn't a big deal to me, but since it is louder when you pedal faster, it would be nice to be able to read while working out)
1. Awesome workout, love that the arms are involved too, makes it like an elliptical but WAY easier on the knees
2. Nice breeze generated when you pedal to keep you cool
3. sturdy, even at the 250lb weight limit
4. easy to set up (10 minutes with 2 people) - comes almost completely assembled, all we had to do is put on pedals, seat and arm things
5. good range of motion & smooth gliding of arms and leg elements)
-Full body workout that strengthens knees (like an elliptical, but better for knees)
-Low cost (I paid only $399)
-Easy assembly (took just 30 minutes--$200 savings from other Airdynes which require professional assembly)
-Digital workout display shows time, calories, distance, speed, and rpm--I love how it cycles through them automaticaly every 30 seconds
-Kicks up wind which helps you stay cool
-Not as loud as other Airdynes (I can watch TV if I turn it up)
-Lighter than other Airdynes (but will still be a 2-man lift for stairs)
-Takes up only a small footprint (about 4' x 2' area)
-No electrical connections required
-Cannot "dial up" resistance (must pedal faster)
-No handlebars for hands when I want to work just legs
-No waterbottle holder (I just set mine on a nearby table)
-Not as durable as all-metal Airdynes, but still good durability
-Although the seat is not like a skinny bicycle seat, it took some getting used to before I felt comfortable on it (you might want to buy a seat pad if you are worried about this, but you can order that later, if needed)
I consider Airdyne bikes to hit the mark as far as giving me a full-body workout which strengthens my knees. The one drawback is that you cannot "dial up" the resistance on this bike--in order to increase intensity, you have to pedal faster; however, my lower body is sore after riding on this for 20+ minutes. Schwinn has three models of Airdyne bike, and I was prepared to get the most expensive. I consider this one to be the best since it does not require professional installation ($200 savings), is cheaper to begin with, is easier to move around the house, and provides the same great full-body exercise as the more expensive models. Unless you are adamant about passing your exercise equipment down as a family heirloom, this bike is the best.
I have also purchased a couple sets of Power Systems Versa-Loop Resistance Band, a couple of Stamina 15-0120 InStride Cycle XL (one for the office and one for home), and a pair of Valeo Adjustable Ankle or Wrist Weights for leg workouts (see my other reviews on these items for details). I consider them to constitute a complete strength-training program targeting my knees.
