Product Summary

Not everyone needs a recumbent-style bicycle, but if you’re someone who does then the Schwinn 230 Recumbent Bike is one of our top picks. At only $500, with free shipping, this bike comes with 16 levels of magnetic resistance, only weighs 80 pounds, and has Bluetooth connectivity so you can use it with any heart rate monitor or fitness tracker you want.

One of the other great features of this bike is that you can connect to apps like Zwift or Explore the World for live and on-demand workout classes. The bike comes with its own media stand, so you can place your iPad or other smart device on the console when you’re ready to ride.

The bike is made with lots of plastic, which we generally don’t like, and the console isn’t backlit, but all told those are minor problems. If you’re simply looking for a bike that can help you maintain or improve your cardiovascular fitness, you’ll want this one.
