I searched the internet and compared a number of recumbent bikes. I found this one with features offered by other brands at a higher cost. The Schwinn 270 had a lot of positive recommendations from articles I read. I was not disappointed in my purchase.
I've had it for only a few weeks, love it so far. My husband had no problems putting it together. Seat is very comfortable & easy to adjust. Would highly recommend to anyone to purchase if wanting a recumbent bike.
Plan on spending about 90 minutes assembling this. It helps if you have more than one person to put it together. Comfortable to use, sturdy for a 6', 300 lb guy. Seat adjustment was easy, and I figured out how to program my user info without reading the manual. Don't expect stereo quality sound from the speakers on the console but they do work just fine, especially if you don't want your iPod or streaming music booming in the next room.
very large easy to put together works really well least that a week old
