This ain't the AD6, which I had hoped it would be. Class D Ball, not the bigs. Get the AD6 and we got a deal. Pass. But thanks for saying it's the AD2; I almost bit.

Over my lifetime I have purchased varies types of Stationary Bikes, alas they all turned into coat hangers and dust collectors. Always to be banished to the basement. Now I use the local health clubs bikes.

I can only vouch for the Schwinn brand, as I own a Schwinn 860 treadmill. I purchased the treadmill here on woot several years ago and it has delivered EVERYTHING IT WAS ADVERTISED to deliver...and I put a lot of miles on it. It still works today as well as it did when I bought it about 4 years ago. One other thing, the woot price was at least $500 less (maybe more than that) than I would have paid if I purchased in any of the sports department stores locally.

I also own an exercise bike which I purchased before I bought my Schwinn treadmill. Had I purchased a bike after the Schwinn treadmill, you could be certain it would have been a Schwinn.

I've owned the same one for 15+ years and it's bullet proof. However the one I own is more like the AD6 model than the one pictured here. If the AD2 has similar craftsmanship to the one I purchased years ago, this is a good deal.

15 years ago it was a very different world. I'm SURE that the products are also very different.

Now appearing at a garage sale near you!

Seriously, after my wife wore out our original Nordic Track, I kept finding dusty unused ones all over..one was even on the street with a FREE sign!

Many charity thrift stores no longer take exercise gear, so it is a buyers market.

However, a lot of what you find is poorly designed "as seen on TV" gimmicks with names such as "Butt Buster" or "Fat Flipper."

Situps, pushups and squat thrusts are cheap and you can take them with you.

acpress.com Not cute, but useful.

The question is whether this is the SAME company or simply somebody who bought their name and is riding on the history while importing products from China.

RCA? Polaroid? Sunbeam? Westinghouse? Bell+Howell? Mostly just names on a sticker.

You are right. Schwinn was bought out by a Chinese company. This is not your father's Schwinn. But this could still be a good product. Looks like a good deal for $229.

Is the tension on the handlebars adjustable?

How loud is it? Will they hear it in the apartment below me?

This seems rather expensive for a clothes hanger.

It's hard to describe the resistance (tension) on an airdyne, but the faster you go, the harder it is to sustain that pace. The resistance comes from the large fan pushing air, so at low speeds it seems quite easy, but as you up your RPMs to a casual bike riding pace, it still feels easy but you're working pretty hard. Crank it up to 60 rpms and most people can't hold that pace for 10 minutes...

And yes, it will rumble quite a bit.

"Henri’s friend Eric, a learned barber who collected the first editions of writers who never had a second edition or a second book, decided to give Doc a rowing machine he had got at the bankruptcy proceedings of a client with a three-year barber bill. The rowing machine was in fine condition. No one had rowed it much. No one ever uses a rowing machine."

How do you contact woot? I have sent emails to them about a product I received that was damaged, and have not received even a bot response.

What about the handlebar tension? Does it also increase with speed?

Thanks!

Would buy but.... Ordered 4 Schwinn Exercise Bikes this year (one last year that had to be left somewhere when we moved) and each this year except for the last one we finally got was a NO SHIP - never received and had to email customer service 3-4 times each to convince the other item in the order thaw was shipped (weight 1#) was not the bicycle but the other item. Finally learned if your address has a PO box as well as a physical address, many items do NOT ship. The post office makes us put the PO box or we get nothing in rural Texas so anything larger than a Bread box is a non item any more in WOOT for us. Been Wooting 9 years and the grief this year with NO SHIPS and DOA's has been more than the 1st 8 years combined.

Yes, you "row" and pedal in sync, as you push down on the right pedal, you pull the right handle back toward you. Down left/pull left.

Yes, that was the first thing I did when I received the laptop. Never received even a canned response from them.

As someone who was 189 at the peak of his fitness (wrestling, football, track.) I barely had any fat on my body. I think the 250 weight limit is pretty low for anyone who really wants to lose weight.

@thunderthighs can help

to the woot staff member that screwed up the back2skool code so I could get a lot of nice things for free - thank you.

Since we don't keep parts on hand, your best bet is to contact Schwinn (here) and ask them to send you what you need. Please feel free to use the support tab at the top of the page if you have any problems speaking with them.
