I used to teach at a low budget gym that had a cycling studio setup with refurbished and garage-sale-bought really old Schwinn bikes – the resistance knob mechanism was built on the outside with no encasement and you can see the brake pads as you turn the knob – just like when I was a kid riding a regular street bike. They also had the Fizik saddles that just…hurt!!Ouch, it hurts just thinking about them.
I sub at a facility that uses the Schwinn® IC2 bike. These bikes feature an onboard computer, are easy to operate, comfortable and quiet.
