How long will the Schwinn AD6 Airdyne last?

The Schwinn AD6 is one of the strongest build bikes in this class. Weighing in at one hundred and twelve pounds. Also, Schwinn is backing this bike with a decent warranty. We would propose this bike be purchased for someone using it more frequently than just a few times a week. We keep in mind that there is no perfect bike in this price class. Simply put, the cheaper the bike the less number of years you will get out of a machine.

Brief Overview

The Schwinn AD6 Airdyne is in second place in its price point, because of the great sale price and overall value. The sale price is great for the bike quality and features provided. Thus, we have put the Schwinn AD6 in second place for the 2021 Best Buy for the $400 to $699 price class.

Overall Quality

The Schwinn AD6 Airdyne has a great sale price, and yet has some great attributes. The sales price of this bike is nearly half of its MSRP, making it a great buy. The AD6 Airdyne bike is among other quality-built bikes that have a belt drive system, known in the industry for its reliability. The infinite resistance permits users to push the limits when using this machine. Schwinn offers a modest warranty; ten years Frame/ two years parts/ one-year electronics. Schwinn let us down in a couple of ways, first off there are too few programs on the AD6 Airdyne, even when compared to the price range below this has nearly twice as many programs.
