Comments:

Better workout than running on a treadmill with less impact. Requires less space than a treadmill as well. Can be noisy when pushing higher levels but that's due to the ingenius wind resistance design. Only downside - every now and again, some loud "bang" noise and the chain starts making some noise. Not sure why that is the case.

Comments:

The Schwinn Airdyne EvoComp is exactly as I expected. Every review I read said it would be difficult to assemble, and they were all correct. Assembly took about 2.5 hours, but not due to the product itself. It was entirely due to the poor assembly instructions that come with the bike. So believe all the reviews that state assembly will take some time. My only other disappointment is that it is not as quiet as I expected. I have used a traditional Airdyne quite a few times and when I read that the Airdyne EvoComp would be quiter I was excited and it was one of the factors that lead me to spend the extra money. By the Airdyne instead of the Airdyne EvoComp if you are purchasing it exclusively for noise levels. The difference is barely noticable.

I am VERY happy with this exercise bicycle. I considered and compared many different products. I am absolutely satisfied that I got the best product and the best price. Yes, it took me the evening to assemble and I had to purchase some metric wrenches, but it was all worth it.

I used the Schwinn Areodyne Comp at the Physical Therapy clinic where I was receiving treatment. It helped me gain a lot of physical endurance, gave me a great cardio workout, and helped me lose weight. When I saw a great price on one at Abe's of Maine, I just had to have one of my own. I know it's a well built machine, comfortable, and easy to use. I would have given it 5 stars, had the assembly instructions been clearer. Not difficult to do, just had some confusing parts, luckily I was able to figure it out. Schwinn should re-write and publish a new instruction manual.

We have used a Schwinn Airdyne bike for over 20 years for our regular excercise routine so when it was time to replace our old bike, we did not consider any other bike, but decided we would like to try the newer version of the old style. We LOVE the Evo Comp even more for its smooth, quiet ride and great resistance. We are very pleased with our choice!

The fan cage was improperly aligned when received resulting in gouging of the fan belt. Cage was properly aligned and no further problems. I hope the belt was not too damaged. Directions should notify assembler to check cage alignment.

...you are looking to use it for rehab OR you are prepared to work really, really hard! I bought this primarily for high intensity interval training, and it is a great machine for that purpose. First a couple of things about assembly. I read lots of horror stories about how difficult assembly is. If you are prepared to do two things first, assembly will present few problems. First, seperate and ID all the parts. I know that's contrary to what most men want to do, but it made things so much easier. Second, have the necessary tools ahead of time. I didn't do that. I had the English wrenches and the allen wrenches, but I did not have the metric wrenches. If you ID the parts and have the tools, you can be done in under two hours. Now for it's uses. It would be great for rehab, as it's very low impact and allows for both upper and lower body work. Aside from that, it's best use is for high intensity interval work. In fact, it's probably the best method for this type of training as you can acheive the right intesity without risk of injury. If you use if properly for that, you will hate the workouts, and you'll feel like you want to die when they are over. Combine these workouts with a proper diet, and you'll loose weight and increase your cardio fitness. If you are not willing to put yourself through that, or if you want something for long, steady state cardio, there are cheaper alternatives. One final thought. It is quieter than the large fan model, but it still makes noise. If you need something whisper quiet, this is not it.

Comments:

I used an Airdyne in the early 1990's to help me aerobically train for motocross racing as the ergonomics are similar to riding a motorcycle. The Evo Comp has much less noise emitting from the drive train and fan assembly than the early models. This is an excellent product!
