The Schwinn 220 Recumbent Exercise Bike 2012 Model is a revised version of a previous model so you would have thought that Schwinn was going to amp it up a bit more than they did – unfortunately it is a little bit of a let down. The bike overall is great and can be found for a decent price when on sale, however the new features that were added to the bike are somewhat lacking.
The oversized console they put on this unfortunately is not back lit so if you are in a dimly lit room good luck trying to read it. Additionally the fan is useless as well.
Overall a good bike and a Schwinn so you know it’s going to last – just not sure why they made a new version of the model when the other was just as good.
