Schwinn 170 Upright Exercise Bike
Schwinn has come a long way since their days of just being a bike manufacture, as they now manufacture quality exercise machines offered at prices which makes their competitors look twice. The 170 is the top of the Schwinn budget line which makes it the perfect marriage of technology and price. Like most bikes in its class, it has a small footprint but retains has a solid, sturdy base. 25 levels of Eddy Current Resistance offer the perfect level of smooth, quiet magnetic resistance for any user.
The bike is programmed with 29 preset workouts and while the console itself looks a little intimidating at first (considering how many buttons it has) it’s pretty easy to navigate once you know what all of the buttons mean. Of course this machine shows all of your key metrics and offers a backlit screen, but it has a ton of extra features which will make you feel like you are actually at the gym.
There’s a USB charging port, a set of decent speakers, a three speed fan, a set of hand grip heart rate monitors, and a water bottle holder. On top of that it has over-sized pedals for easy pedaling and a surprisingly comfortable seat. This bike has one of our lists best warranties for a budget bike, with a 10 year warranty on the frame and two years on parts. As a nice bonus, Schwinn even offers a 90 day labor warranty.
