The Schwinn 170 Upright Bike is more or less the same as the Schwinn 270. What’s the difference then, you may ask? Well the 170 is a traditional, upright exercise bike whereas the 270 is a recumbent bike. Therefore, the difference doesn’t lie in the number of programs, resistance settings or any other feature, but rather the comfort level, with recumbent models typically being more comfortable.

The Schwinn 170 definitely trumps previous models such as the Schwinn 140, as it comes with 29 built-in workout programs, offering more than enough variety for even the most dedicated of fitness enthusiasts. These programs consist of 12 profile, 9 heart rate, 4 custom, 2 fitness test, 1 recovery test, and 1 quick start. All the programs appear to be well-designed and should put you on the right track for achieving your fitness goals.
There are a generous 25 levels of eddy current resistance settings to choose from which, again, is more than enough for the dedicated fitness enthusiast. Like all of Schwinn’s recently released exercise bikes, the level of resistance can be changed via 10 resistance quick keys, and the workout is smooth and quiet due to the high inertia perimeter weighted flywheel
The Schwinn 170 features the company’ popular DualTrack LCD display, allowing you to track 13 different display feedbacks, including all the usual ones such as speed, distance, calories burned, resistance level, and so on, as well as things like %complete indicator, intensity meter, HR zone indicator, and more. USB data transfer functionality to the SchwinnConnect website and MyFitnessPal is also included.
The comfort of the 170 can’t compare to the 270 as they both serve different purposes. However, that isn’t to say that the 170 isn’t comfortable, as its oversized, padded, and contoured seat makes sure that it is. Combine this with the easy seat adjustment, 3-piece pedal cranks and oversized pedals with toe straps, and you can see that you’re backside won’t
suffer as you cycle.
Other features include acoustic chamber speakers, removable forearm rests, a water bottle holder, and transport wheels.
The Schwinn 170 is backed by a 10-year frame, 2-year mechanical. 1-year electrical, and 90-day labor warranty.
If you’ve read any of our other exercise bike reviews then you know that the most common complaint we have is the ineffectiveness of the fan. The Schwinn 170 is no exception, with its stream of air not being powerful enough to refresh you during a workout, in spite of its 3-speed setting.
Anything Else You Should Know?
You are able to measure your pulse in two ways; you can either use the contact heart rate grips or purchase a chest strap as the bike is telemetry enabled. 4 users are also able to input their data, customize their own programs, and access these customized settings without losing any stored information when using the bike.
