Sturdy, efficient and highly professional, it should come as no wonder that the Schwinn IC2 is one of the most sought-after indoor cycling bikes. Held in high regard by both novice and veteran athletes, this indoor cycle comes with a variety of features such as easily-adjustable pedals and multi position handlebars, and a handy LCD display. This particular spin bike is also oozing with comfort and ease of use, something that users will undoubtedly appreciate since it will help them indulge in lengthier workouts.

In fact, apart from the Schwinn IC2 we also took the time to review its more expensive models Schwinn AC Sport and AC Performance Plus.Schwinn IC2 Black spinning bike

Product Features and Comfort

Unlike most other exercise machines, the Schwinn IC2 delivers a surprisingly silent workout that certainly attests to its professional quality. Its near-silent feature is largely related to the smooth chain drive system that also offers quite a realistic outdoors biking sensation. In fact, the weighted 31 pounds flywheel also adds to this experience and has the added advantage of keeping the machine firmly into place no matter how energetically you train. The silent feature can be quite a motivation factor as well, because it allows you to listen to some music or watch TV as you cycle.

Another extremely helpful feature is the LCD console. Few spin bikes are equipped with these accessories but this machine does give you an accurate readout of the number of calories burned, distance covered, speed, time and RMP. While this bike does not really allow users to set the console on a specific readout, it does provide a continuous loop of all the exercise-relevant data to let you know how much you’ve advanced, which can be quite motivating to any person who’s trying to lose weight.schwinn ic2 handlebars

Although this model’s 250 pounds of maximum user capacity might seem not much, it’s however more than the offered by the similarly-priced model Bladez Fitness Jet GS.

While the bike does not claim much floor space, its diminutive frame manages to remain completely stable, even when used by overweight people. This is largely due to the dual stabilizers that, when coupled with the flywheel, keeps the bike completely into place. Best of all, the handlebars and saddle are completely adjustable, textured and padded to guarantee your comfort while encouraging you to spend more time on the machine.

Wide pedals with firm straps along with an ergonomically-shaped water bottle holder are also included for this same purpose. In fact, the bottle holder can also double as an MP3 or iPod dock. Users who like to train for longer periods of time will undoubtedly relish in the built-in fan that will keep you cool and sweat-free. Lastly, thanks to the unique Direct Drive Gearing System, athletes will be able to experience various tension levels that are adjusted in various increments.

Assembly and Parts

While a few users claimed to have had some mild setup problems with this model, I personally found it quite easy to put together. The bike’s simple design largely accounted for the fact that I only needed around half an hour to less to assemble it, even when I’m not really used to such technical jobs. I didn’t have to rush to the store to get any screws, knobs or any other such accessories because these were already included in the packaging, along with the partially mounted frame. A detailed instructions manual also comes with the bike and this is bound to make things much easier for new users.

Drawbacks

A few users did complain about the limited weight capacity of 250lbs. Some people also had some issues with the delivery process but this was linked to the courier service and not Schwinn Fitness. Otherwise, except for these minor drawbacks, most customers were satisfied with this item.Schwinn IC2 Black indoor cycle
