Schwinn is a well-known American company founded in 1895. They’ve been producing bicycles since the very beginning, though they’ve been making recumbent bicycles for a lot less time, since about 2003. Their recumbent bikes tend to be fairly affordable, with prices ranging from $299 to about $499. Their most expensive bikes have some rather sophisticated technology in them, offering plenty of feedback on things such as miles travelled. They also have built-in workout programs that can be used to guide an exercise routine.
Shwinn has a very strong market position with plenty of well-reviewed exercise products. The use of technology on their products is also quite nice, offering things like multiple levels of resistance (around 20 or so), and several different workout programs (as mentioned).
They also have the benefit of experience. Being that they were established as far back as 1895, they’ve been in the market for an extremely long time and very much know what they’re doing.
The only real downside to Schwinn products is that they can be slightly expensive. The prices aren’t too bad for what you get, but it gets steep fairly quickly, and they don’t cater too much to budget-conscious buyers. Regardless, their products are still about as high-quality as you can get.
Schwinn has a long-standing reputation for developing innovative and long-lasting bikes – and the Schwinn 230 Recumbent Bike is no exception. This bike delivers the best workout in a comfortable and manageable position: with a contoured adjustable seat and lower back support, you’ll feel great while you’re working up a sweat. It has a console to track your progress, and you can choose from 9 course profiles and 20 resistance levels.

This is my first recumbent bike. It was easy enough to assemble and had has all the tools included in the packaging. It is doesn't come with an AC adaptor or batteries and you might need extension cords. There are 6 programs and 8 resistance levels. The heart rate monitor is a nice feature and I hardly use the speakers. The console has a shelf to place a book or tablet. The best feature is that this bike has wheels. So you move it in front of the TV if you want but it is sturdy and stable to be placed on a rug. It is a very quiet bike, so it is suited for houses with babies or second floors. So far, I am loving it.[Read Full Review]
