The Schwinn A20 comes with the Eddy current resistance system so it is possible to get a hard workout if that is what you desire. It is also a recumbent bike so it is easy on the back. The LCD console gives the user the ability to track distance, time spent pedaling, pulse, RPM, speed, calories burned, current resistance level and your course profile. This model can accommodate individuals up to 275 pounds. It also comes with a durable belt drive motor and is known to run both smoothly and quietly.
Easy setup as long as you read the assembly instructions before starting and it's better if it's a two-man operation. The seat is easy to adjust which is nice if multiple bikers will use the bike. It's really quiet during operation, which allows for reading, watching TV or listening to music. This is an affordable model and good value for the features
The display is difficult to read in low light due to small lettering and lack of bold font to the lettering and no backlight.
The Bottom Line:
The Schwinn A20 performs well as a recumbent exercise bike and it's very quiet when in use. The resistance is very easy to adjust and there are eight resistance levels and six pre-set programs so something for everyone in the family who wants to exercise. This may not be exactly the same quality of a gym bike but it is stable, built of quality craftsmanship and you will get a good workout using it.
