Schwinn Airdyne AD2 Upright Exercise Bike
Great Exercise Bike
Perfect bike to build up stamina at your own pace. It is very quiet. The seat is very uncomfortable but I compensate by putting a small pillow on top. Highly recommend. Had to reorder because the initial box arrived damaged. QVC customer service handled the problem excellently. The only frustration was having to repackage the box. I did request that the item be inspected before leaving the factory. The second shipment was perfect.
I just received my bike, and had no problem putting it together being I'm a 70-year-old widow. I gave it only four stars because as the other people say the seat is uncomfortable but I'm hoping to get a gel seat to put on it.. I'm hoping now to get in better shape, as I have one knee replacement and the other knee is in bad shape so using the bike would be the best thing for me.
I RECENTLY HAD KNEE REPLACEMENT SURGERY & WAS VERY EXCITED TO RECEIVE THIS EXERCISE BIKE TO HELP WITH MY REHAB. GREAT - IT WAS DELIVERED ON TIME! BUT,WE DISCOVERED THE BASE OF THE FRAME WAS DEFECTIVE & THERE WAS NO WAY TO ATTACH THE STABILIZER BAR.. I WON'T REORDER IT FROM QVC, BUT WILL PURCHASE LOCALLY SO I WON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE HASSLE OF REPACKING A HUGE, HEAVY BOX & SHIPPING IT BACK. A WASTE OF TIME! VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!
While it is easy to assemble, the seat is very uncomfortable.
This is a very well-built bike that my whole family can benefit from using. It has replaced our inconvenient health club membership and has paid for itself. It is easy to fit into our schedules and incorporate with other exercise especially if it's too cold to get out for a walk. I can also watch the Q while burning calories! The seat hasn't been an issue for us. The digital read out is pretty awesome, too!
I have never purchased an exercise bike or a Schwinn product and I love this bike. Quiet enough to watch TV and use after everyone goes to bed. Not difficult to put together 30 minutes tops and does not take up a large amount of space. I had considered a tread climber from one company but heard it is a product that is needs repair quite often so that was a deal breaker right there and it was much more money. Price was right on this Schwinn Airdyne and easy pay a blessing. This is a good investment in your health so I highly recommend it!
Thanks Schwinn - I Knew I Could Count On You
Received 4 days earlier than anticipated. Bike was packed very nicely. (After reading the horror stories of some other exercise equipment and how terribly it was packed, I was alittle nervous.) Everything was there including the tools needed to assemble. Easy to put together by self - I am a 57 year old female - had no issues other than some of the screws are already on the bike (for handles and seat). Careful taking them off or putting them on as I dropped them twice and you guessed it, they dropped right into the wheel - took forever to get them out........seems it took longer to unpack than to put it together, not counting the time I took trying to recover the screws. Seems very well built.......wanted a treadmill but beings I live upstairs, this was a better option and the easy pay is great......will buy an elliptical once this is paid for. Like the monitor also.
New knee rehab
Best purchase ever. ...I was told by my orthopedic surgeon & Physical therapist to get a stationary bike for rehab to help build the muscles in my leg after knee replacement . The bike arrived before said delivery date & only took my husband less then 30 minutes to assemble. It is very quiet ! Super well built !! I would definitely recommend this bike to all.
This bike was very easy to assemble and is simple to use. I would recommend purchasing a seat cover to increase comfort while riding for longer than 10 minutes. I love that it requires no electricity to use and it isn't terribly loud either. I have found this to be a great way to work out while minimizing impact on my knees and ankles (I am prone to fractures). Very well built machine.
Well built bike
I received this bike today. Assembled it myself. Very easy...even for a girl. No need for two people. When I ordered the bike, I also ordered a gel seat cover that fits all schwinn airdyne exercise bikes....costs about $35.00. Well worth it. I cycle an average of 18.0 mph for 30 minutes, 4 days a week. It is a good workout and the bike is very well built. The workouts can be as challenging as you want to make them. The price that QVC offers this bike is excellent. I have seen the AD2 at a well known store for about $550.00. That doesn't include shipping, either. I have been shopping for a gym quality excercise bike and this is the one. Glad I purchased it.
Great bike but the seat not so much.
Love the movement and workout that I get with this bike but the seat is so uncomfortable I had to order a gel cover from Amazon to make it bearable to ride for over 10 minutes. Even with the 1 1/2 inch gel cover I have to put more cushion between seat and cover. Not sure why Schwinn hasnt replaced this seat with a better one since this has been a problem for a long while. This is a special welded bracket for the seat to attach to so you cannot buy a better bike seat to replace it. Now with cushion/gel cover I am able to ride for over 45 minutes without a pain in my okole. So glad because it cost me $150 in shipping to get it to Hawaii and I don't want to spend the same to return it. Nobody sells the Airdyne here.
Great Workout and low impact
My Dr. recommended an airdyne bike for me due to lower back problems and heal spurs. I am LOVING it! I haven't been able to run or use and elliptical since May and it feels great to work out again. The bike is very sturdy and smooth. At first I thought it would be too easy but about 3 minutes into the workout I was really feeling the burn. The seat is a bit uncomfortable but it's no different than any other bike seat. I am so glad I purchased this bike!
