Product Summary

The Schwinn IC3 bike is sturdy and durable. If you have any problems with the bike, reviews state that the customer service Schwinn provides is excellent. The 40-pound flywheel helps power a quiet ride, which means you can place the bike wherever you want to place it in your home or gym. The infinitely variable resistance lets you create the workout that you need depending on your goals.

Whether you have cycling shoes with clips or sneakers, the dual SPD pedals will work for you. The handlebars are padded and come with multiple grip positions so you can put your hands where you feel comfortable. This bike also comes with a ventilated race style seat to help you prepare for races that you may or may not have coming up. The seat and handlebars are easily adjustable so you can find the height and distance that is perfect for you or your family.

In regards to technology, this Schwinn bike comes with a LCD console that can monitor heart rate as well as your standard metrics like time, distance, and calories. If you are somebody who likes to follow a workout online, you can use the multi-media device holder, which is the perfect size for a tablet or iPad. There is no connectivity option on the IC3 though, so you’ll have to stream any online workouts separately.

For $700, this bike isn’t the greatest value, but Schwinn is a reputable brand so you should get a durable product.
