In summary, this Schwinn 230 Recumbent Bike is an excellent exercise bike with all the bells and whistles. A great addition to my home gym. After trying Schwinn 270 recumbent bike at my local sporting goods store (Dick’s Sporting Goods) and liking it a lot, I was contemplating between the 270 and the 230. Basically there are three main differences: (1) The 270 has 25 levels of resistance versus 20 levels for the 230. (2) The seat has cushion on the 270 while the 230 has a plastic seat with holes for airflow. (3) The 270 could have up to 4 saved profiles and the 230 could have 2. Number of profiles on the 270 might be a good feature for folks who would share the bike with more than 2 people but I was only sharing with my wife so it wasn’t a big deal for me. And since the 230 is a new model (2016 vs. 2013), I decided to go with the 230 and I couldn’t be happier. Before I talk about pros and cons, I just wanted to talk just a little bit about myself so you get a better perspective. I’m 5’9”, male, 160 lbs, in my 30s, in a relatively good shape but nothing close to a triathlon athlete or body builder. I’m just a casual rider who puts in about 30-45 minutes, 2-3 times a week. Pros: – The bike has a very smooth ride on all resistances. No squick, no thump, just a smooth sound of a well-oil machine probably very close to those heavy duty commercial grade exercise bikes you see at the gym. – Slider seat is so easy to adjust. I know for this price range, this is a requirement especially when two of us are sharing this bike adjusting back and forth. – Sturdy! Of course as I described above I’m not testing this Schwinn 230 Recumbent Bike to it max limits since I’m just an average guy with average use but so far, nothing is shaking and nothing is loose. – Low impact on your knees and joints but you could probably say the same on all bikes and elliptical machines. – Programs. Many programs to choose from. Some are fun while others I’m never going back to but that’s just based on my personal preference.
