Schwinn 140 Upright Exercise Bike Review

[wptab name=’Our Analysis’]

The Schwinn 140 Upright Exercise Bike offers good value for money when you consider what you’re getting for the price (the Schwinn 170 is also worth a look at), such as a generous number of workout programs (17) and resistance levels (16), not to mention that it offers quite a comfortable workout experience, which is a rarity for exercise bikes.

The 17 built-in workout programs consist of 8 course profile, 3 heart rate controlled, 2 custom, a quick start, fitness test, distance goal and results mode programs, which should be more than enough variety for most people. Considering that there are 16 levels of resistance, it’s also very likely that you’ll be able to find a setting that is challenging enough for you, even if you’re in excellent shape.

The Schwinn 140 Upright Exercise Bike features a 20-pound flywheel, thereby making sure that the pedaling motion feels both smooth and natural, similar to a true road feel, and that the bike doesn’t wobble as you cycle.

One of the best aspects of this bike is definitely its high level of comfort, which is something that Schwinn are renown for. The seat is oversized and thickly padded so to deliver a comfortable workout experience, and you can adjust the seat both horizontally and vertically, allowing you to get into a comfortable riding position regardless of your height, weight or leg length. The pedals have been ergonomically designed and are also oversized, again, allowing anyone to find a comfortable fit. The handlebars are also adjustable, which is something that taller individuals will appreciate.Schwinn 140 Upright Exercise Bike Computer Monitor

The backlit display provides you with important information as you cycle, including resistance, calories burned, speed, distance, watts, rpm, time and interval time. Your heart rate can also be recorded thanks to the inclusion of heart rate sensors in the handlebars, or you can even opt to use a telemetry enabled device, as the Schwinn 140 Upright Exercise Bike offers support for these type of devices.

Schwinn 140 Upright Exercise Bike User Reviews

The Schwinn 140 Upright Exercise Bike has received favorable reviews from users. Many people have commented on just how quiet the bike is when in operation, making it a good choice for those who don’t want to annoy others or like to watch TV as they work out. Many have also stated that they enjoy the smooth pedaling motion, as it feels as if they are riding a real bike.

Others have stated that the assembly process is easy and that it shouldn’t take anyone longer than an hour to fully assemble the bike, and that the bike is very comfortable to use, which is largely down to the fact that everything is adjustable. However, some very tall users (6′ 3″ and taller) have run into an issue. While others have said that it’s hard to fit a water bottle into the water bottle holder, although this seems like a minor issue in the grand scheme of things.

Overall, the Schwinn 140 seems to be a solid buy and offers good value for money. It’s comfortable, features a wide range of built-in workout programs and resistance settings, and is able to deliver a smooth, natural pedaling motion. However, individuals who are over 6′ 3″ should, as stated, be aware of the fact that their knees may hit the handlebars when pedaling.
