I’ve used this bike 2 to 4 times a week for two years and I’ve done nothing to it. It’s still sturdy and quite.
I did research for over a month before buying this bike. I looked at bikes from $500 to $1500 and everything in between. I had been using a Keiser spin bike at the gym and for me that was the gold standard. I was going to buy an M3 until I tried one of these at my friends house. Its an absolutely perfect spin bike! Yeah yeah yeah, it’s not a keiser but it’s quiet, very heavy, and heavy duty. All you need is an IPad and you’re set! I’ve been using mine 3 to 5 times a week for almost a year. It does not slide around, the parts are very well made, and it’s extremely quite. I use it in the morning while everyone is asleep, you can only hear it if your are in the same room. Hope that helps, it’s a great buy. No need to spend more when this does the job better than I could have ever expected.
UPDATE 5/29/18: Having now put around 20 hours/200 miles on this thing I am a true believer. Schwinn is the way to go for this type of bike. Amazing value and dependability
- Main problem: this bike is not for tall folks. I'm 6'3" and the bike it a bit too short for me.
- The flywheel is not exactly quiet - expect some grinding and squealing noise at higher efforts.
- The seat mast is made of thin aluminum and gives considerable flex.
- The pedals are very cheap - I opted to replace mine.
- The computer is junk. Most of the readouts are useless and the only useful one for Peloton classes, cadence, shares the space with distance. What?
- Only very specific heart bands will work with the computer. Both of the straps I had (Garmin and TomTom Bluetooth) didn't work.

I use this bike with the Peloton app. The computer readout displays RPM (cadence) although the RPM information alternates with the speed (km/h) information so it's a bit of a nuisance if you're trying to follow RPM closely but the display is showing speed. Over time you'll know the speed equivalence of RPM/cadence so it doesn't bother me that the display doesn't show RPM all the time. (ie: 35 km/h = approx 90 RPM, 25 km/h = approx 70 RPM) The Schwinn bike does not display resistance levels. One tip I have if you're using the Peloton app is to go and try the Peloton bike at one of their showrooms. You'll get a good feel for what a resistance level 20 / 40 / 60 feels like so you can adjust accordingly with the Schwinn bike based on feel. For me close enough is good enough. Peloton resistance levels are generally a range/guide and each person adjusts according to their comfort/ability anyways.
The calorie information does not take into account resistance. It seems to only take into consideration time and distance. The bike does not come with a heart rate monitor despite the computer having a box that would show heart rate/pulse if you purchased a compatible remote heart rate monitor.
If you use a large tablet (for the time being I use my iPhone) it can be difficult to grab the water bottle out of the water bottle holder since the tablet would be in the way. I would purchase a separate water bottle holder if I do use a tablet in the future.
I have Specialized cycling shoes with shimano clips. They are perfectly compatible with the clips that come with the bike. No issues at all clipping in and out of the bike. I have taken off the cage straps as they kept slapping the pedal itself and making noise when pedaling with cycling shoes.
Assembly was easy and straight forward. You'll need two people - one person to hold/lift the bike up while the other person places the front and back base brackets in place. The box is also heavy and should be moved by two people.
All in all, I love this bike. It solid and well built, looks great, quiet, feels great, rides smooth. This isn't a Peloton bike but it does all the things that spinning bikes are supposed to do. If you're looking for a cost effective alternative to Peloton bike or just a solid spinning bike for your home, I highly recommend this one.
A bit of cheapness when it comes to the water bottle holder/tablet attachment. It goes on slightly crooked even after many attempts. This mainly upsets me because when riding my ipad slowly shakes off the bike as it is on a slant.
The cleats that came with the bike are absolute trash. After having a lot of trouble with them, I Took them into a cycle store with my shoes and they basically laughed at me saying that these weren’t even real cleats. I’d recommend purchasing your own for only around $25.
The flywheel started making a squeaking noise after only 2 rides, but will have it looked at by a tech soon.
The digital monitor in the centre is only really useful for speed, I cannot figure out how to personalize it so that it gives the correct caloric output and stats etc.
Other than that, the bike is of a high quality and I’ve been getting great workouts daily!
Great with my peloton app.
I have an Ipad pro 12.9" with a large hard case and it fits perfect on the provided slot.
Only downfall is the seat.... Oh it's toooo hard, hurts the bum. But not a huge deal just got another schwin larger and more padded one from Canadian Tire. Problem solved.
Note to those who say the flywheel screeches: just add some silicone lubricant to the felt pad. Takes two seconds to do and make any noise disappear. I got a bottle of treadmill lube from amazon as well for just a few bucks.
Also, the bike wheels started making squeaky sound after a several uses.
The seat is really hard to sit on, but gets improved with an extra layer of seating that I bought separately.
I’m quite disappointed at Schwinn considering they makes such good quality of outdoor bikes ..
I basically stopped using after a month and now it’s sitting in my living room collecting dusts :(
I probably would not have bought it if I knew the quality is like this ....
