The Buzz

UPDATE:  The 140 upright bike is no longer available for sale. Check out the new 170 upright, an upgraded model with more advanced features.

There’s no fan, but the Schwinn 140 upright exercise bike includes an oversized saddle, reading rack, water bottle holder, frame levelers, and transport wheels. Mechanical components include a 20-pound flywheel and the sophisticated Eddy Current Brake (ECB) system. Resistance levels from 1 to 16.

Part of the BioFit™ Comfort technology on the Schwinn 140 includes the dual density premium pedal design, giving the pedals a 1-degree tilt for a more comfortable pedaling stance. The extra-wide seat is adjustable, as are the handlebars.

The whisper quiet ride is often the first thing mentioned in the many positive reviews on the Schwinn 140 exercise bike. It is an impressive looking stationary bike with quality components, including a stable 88-pound frame to handle most any size user.

The upright bike assembles easily right out of the box, but unfortunately, does not ship with the 48-page user’s manual. If you want to review how to operate the console and get the most out of the programming, you should download a free copy from Schwinn Fitness.

Our Take on the 140 Exercise Bike

Another nice feature of the Schwinn 140 exercise bike is the on-board computer with Schwinn Advantage™ which automatically records every workout in your User profile so you can track your fitness progress. It also has one Guest User profile (no data storage). There’s no On/Off switch, but the console automatically powers down after 5 minutes of non-use.

Some users don’t like the LCD display, which can be more difficult to read than an LED display, especially when you glance at the console at an angle, but that’s a personal preference.

Other than that, few users have complaints about their new 140 model. For $349 at Amazon, the Schwinn 140 upright exercise bike is a Good Buy.
