How long will the Schwinn 170 Upright last?

The Schwinn 170 Upright Bike has a commendable 10-year frame warranty despite having a light weight of only 58 lbs. There is a 300 full lb. maximum weight which is mostly believable considering Schwinn is a reputable company and there is a credible warranty. Other coverage for the 170 Upright is 2 years on parts, 1 year on electronics, and 90 whole days on labor. Light use is best for this bike, but an extended warranty adds a worry-free environment for those looking to work out more than a few times a week. With proper care and maintenance, a user will see many years of workouts from this machine.

Brief Overview

The Schwinn 170 Upright Bike brings the world of cycling fun to a residential environment and comes with a few pleasing features for motivating hardened souls into exercising their way to better health. It is touted as being easy to assemble yet the option to have it professionally built in-home is offered at purchase for those with limited mechanical abilities. It is a hearty riding machine and a great investment for anyone looking to add an upright bike to their indoor workout regimen.

Overall Quality

The Schwinn 170 Upright Bike has many commendable product features for those looking to cycle their way to better health.
