The Schwinn 240 Recumbent Exercise Bike has been one of the best-selling exercise bikes for a long time. The main reason for its success is that you get good value for your money. It has all the features you expect from a high-end bike but is cheaper than most of the competition. You can find cheaper exercise bikes but the Schwinn 240 is one of best recumbent exercise bikes.

Schwinn 240 Owner Review
We purchased this bike in April or May of this year and we have been VERY happy with our purchase. The bike took a while to set up, but we were prepared for that. All of the pieces were quality, as we expected from Schwinn, and nothing feels chintzy. Pedaling is silent and is very, very smooth. This bike is comfortable and has just enough features to be helpful and informative without being TOO much.
