The Schwinn 240 Recumbent Exercise Bike is one of the most popular recumbent exercise bikes on the market today. Customers who have purchased this bike rave about its comfort, sturdiness, and easy adjustability.
There have, however, been some issues with shipping including missing parts on occasion. Assembly takes about three hours, but can take a little bit longer for some. The bike comes with a 5-year warranty on the frame and 1-year warranty on parts.
The Schwinn 240 Recumbent Exercise Bike is built with a padded ergonomic seat and adjusts easily to provide excellent back support and overall comfort. A weighted flywheel enhances the ride, mimicking the feel of true outdoor biking. Stabilizers and levelers are built into the bike as well.
Included with the recumbent exercise bike are 17 workout programs and 8 different course profiles. Two user profiles are available, allowing for workout customization. There are 16 different resistance levels, a water bottle holder, reading rack, transport wheels, and the bike can switch between miles and kilometers.
The Bottom Line
Overall, the Schwinn 240 Recumbent Exercise Bike is a great product. It’s received overwhelmingly favorable reviews, its built to last a long time, and comes with a wide array of features that should satisfy any fitness enthusiast. I would say 17 workout programs is sufficient for just about everyone and the 16 resistance levels gives you the flexibility to mix up your workouts making them both fun and challenging.
Also, I like how they pay attention to not only the build of the bike and features, but also the little things like including a reading rack and water bottle holder. These things seem small, but they will add to the experience and make you want to work out more often which is always a good thing.
