The Schwinn AD2 Airdyne Bike is not a traditional bike machine found in most gyms since it uses wind resistance technology instead.
The best home exercise bike is designed for home use since it not only primarily exercises the legs but the entire body. This is because the Schwinn AD2 synchronizes the arm and leg movement, which mimics the natural human walking motion.
The beauty of this excellent stationary exercise bike is that the exercise resistance can be adjusted through air displacement.
An individual can use the Schwinn AD2 to do only a bodyweight exercise since stationary foot peg rests are placed beside the LCD console.
The bike is considered to be a basic exercise bike since it is designed with a belt drive system instead of a weighted flywheel drive.
The Schwinn AD2 Airdyne Bike is a considered to be a lightweight exercise bike since the maximum user weight is computed at only 250 pounds.
The Included seat is considered to be also basic and may eventually be changed to a more comfortable design.
The advantage of the adjustable seat post system is that the home exercise bike can be used by individuals from 5 feet to 6 feet tall.
Another advantage of the Schwinn AD2 is that this home exercise bike gives a basic workout to the individual since the exercise can be limited to only the upper body, the lower body, and both the upper and lower body.
Schwinn AD2 Airdyne Bike Features
This stationary exercise bike can also be easily stored since it can be moved from room to room with the included transport wheels.
Another advantage of the Schwinn AD2 takes up a small space, which is at a maximum of 4 feet by 2 feet.
The main disadvantage is that there is no resistance level to this stationary bike exercise. Due to the essential nature of the bike design, the user can do other activities while exercising such as watching television, listening to music or reading a book.
The reason for this is that the LCD console only displays the time, calories used, distance, and RPM, which makes exercise monitoring of minimal interest to machine users.
Ease of Assembly
The main advantage of the stationary bike exercise is that it can do easily assembled without the need for professionals.
This is because the only electrical or computer parts in the entire bike machine are on its console, which is powered by two AA batteries.
The basic design of the Schwinn AD2 Airdyne Bike reveals its biggest problem, which is that the seat is only moved up and down depending on the user height making the exercise experience uncomfortable for most users. This is improved when the included seat is replaced with a conversion kit that has a standard post.
Another problem for machine users is that this is not designed to hold electronic devices or magazines, which makes reading or listening to music difficult.
In order to improve the resistance, the user will need to pedal faster, which will make the air displacement sound louder.
The advantage of the air displacement technology is that it mimics the movement of a fan, which can be used to cool down the user.
