The Schwinn 150 Upright Exercise Bike – An Upgrade of the Schwinn 140

The Schwinn 150 upright exercise bike has the same specs as the best-selling 140 model, and comes with some welcome upgrades such as a more attractive display and an MP3 plug-in with built-in speakers.

The Buzz

UPDATE:  The 150 upright bike is no longer available. Check out the popular 170 model, an upgraded version with better features.

The Schwinn 150 upright exercise bike has an AC adapter plug and is built on the same frame and comes with the same warranty as the 140 model.

It has features such as a quiet Eddy Current Brake system, 20-pound flywheel, a 275-lb user weight capacity, 20 levels of resistance, a fully adjustable saddle, tilting console, oversized pedals, fully shrouded flywheel, cooling fan, and transport wheels.

The Schwinn 150 upright also features a Polar heart rate chest strap and contact heart rate (CHR) pads on the handlebars. Unlike the 140, the 150 model has an MP3 music input port and speakers (but just the plug-in and not actual integrated controls).

Our Take

Schwinn 150 Exercise Bike

We found some users who don’t feel that the fan puts out much air at all, and the 90 day warranty on wear parts is weak.

While there are some good user reviews on this $315 model, the Schwinn 150 doesn’t hold up to the better Nautilus U514 exercise bike which costs about $50 more but comes with a 2-year mechanical warranty and a 1-year wear parts warranty.

You would spend more than that just paying for an extended warranty on the Schwinn.

Nautilus makes Schwinn which is why both makes of bikes seem to share the same features and overall design. The Schwinn 150 upright exercise bike is a very good model, but we feel you’ll be happier if you spend a few dollars more and go with the Nautilus U514 to get a better value.
