Get On the Road to Fitness with the Proform Whirlwind Upright Exercise Bike
The Proform Whirlwind Bike gets you to the finish line and has you beating the competition, even if it means beating your own personal best as it gets you to up the ante a little higher each time. With its patented RaceTrack™ feature, you can monitor your progress in a track-style display so you are always on top of your workout.
You’ll be amazed at the total body workout you’ll get while riding it as the XP Whirlwind 280 Upright Exercise Bike works a bit like an elliptical trainer with its Dual-Action Upper-Body Arms feature that trains your upper and lower body simultaneously so you tone all your major muscle groups at a time. You can vary the resistance by working your legs against your arms and vice versa or just use your arms or legs. The powerful resistance system is provided by a fan/flywheel that uses the power of wind to keep you cool while working your muscles, so the faster you pedal, the more you increase your resistance and the cooler you feel. With a ride that feels so natural, you can almost imagine the breeze in your hair!
Comfort features include an adjustable seat that slides easily until you find the position that is just right for you. Bigger and cushier, the seat guarantees not only a productive workout, but a comfortable ride, while textured pedals provide a stable platform for your workout. Other convenience features include a brightly lit LCD display ... read more

Good, solid bike

I disagree with the poor reviews. I also bought the older version of this bike, and it did start to breakdown, but that was after over 10 years of 3-6 days per week of use. The new bike is sturdier and quieter. Compared to the competition, it is a great bike for the price.

Bearings failed but cheap repair ...

Bearings failed after light use.  However, the bearings used are the old-fashioned American style bottom bracket bearings used in older bikes and still in some kids bikes.  I replaced the worn out bearings with a new set of one piece "Ashtabula BB030" bearings.  These are a high quality 10 ball bearing race (compared to the 9 ball original set).  The bike now runs very smoothly - the cost of the replacement was $15.95 plus a bit of effort to get the old bearings out, clean up and put the new ones in place.  You will need a couple of bike tools - a puller to get the pedals off and another bike tool called a Pin Spanner, I used a yellow handled Pin spanner that did fit the key slots nicely.  Cheap fix and the bike now runs better than new ..

Sturdy and a great value


This bike is nice and sturdy. I had a friend put it together, and I have been using it three times a week. Too bad it does not have adjustable tension, but it will give you a great workout! Be ready to sweat!!!

Great for workout


I had no issues with putting this thing together per the instructions verse some reviews. I took my time and it went together nicely. It was a bit confusing though on the pedals as it does ask you to verify all pieces are there before assembly and one washer it shows is actually inside the plastic so don't really expect to see it loose.

Good bike


We've had ours for about 3 weeks and I'm pleased with it. I put it together by myself and am satisfied with the quality. I am a 60 yr-old out of shape grandma and I ride while I watch tv (pedaling backwards during commercials to exercise different muscles and cool off, thanks to the fan). I'm up to about 45 minutes a day. I'm well satisfied with this bike. My husband, recovering from coronary bypass surgery, also uses the bike on days that he doesn't have cardiac rehab and has no complaints about the bike either.

Pedals snap like pretzels


I bought this product in early 2011 and it has been lightly used on an irregular basis since then. I've had to replace both pedals, at $45 a piece, in the past 7 months because they snapped off at the crank arm. The rest of the bike is well made but the pedals must be made of a cheap quality steel. I've never experienced bicycle pedal shafts breaking in half.

Not recommended


This appeared to be the perfect machine for me. I needed both an upper and lower body workout at a reasonable price, and this bike offered this at a great price. I purchased the bike in the store after trying it out.

After assembly (I am very mechanically inclined) the bike appeared to functioning perfectly, and the workout was just as I had hoped for. However, after only 3 weeks of daily use (20 minute workouts) it started to make a squeaking noise and I felt a vibration in the left pedal. Because I had read the reviews for this bike I knew that this was the beginning of the end for the bearings.

But this is where it gets good for Sears. Their online return procedure is exemplary (return or exchange in 5), provided that you can get the bike back to the store (no problem for me). A very simple and painless return to the store. I am now getting the Schwinn AD6, the quality and build are superior.

Please do not buy


This was the perfect bike for me.
But the quality is awful. A pedal just broke off, the steel shaft broke!.
Pay a bit more and get something that might last
