Overall Quality

The Schwinn IC3 Indoor Cycling Bike offers unlimited levels of resistance with a smoothly operating 40 lb. flywheel for those looking to intensify training sessions. Quickly add or remove resistance with a twist of the handy knob located in the frame body. Shaped like a racing bike, the IC3 is built for comfort with both seat and handlebars adjusting in a vertical and horizontal motion. Premium ergonomic handlebars provide various gripping points while feet are secure in either toe cages or clicked in with SPD special made riding shoes. A small LCD screen shares 6 fonts of information but heartrate information must be collected on a strap that is not included with purchase. Transport wheels help the IC3 to move easily out of the way when exercise is complete. Other conveniences include an integrated tablet holder and a place to rest a water bottle.
