Schwinn 112 Exercise Bike

The Schwinn 112 Upright bike rest above the Schwinn 101, and Schwinn 103, and sits below the Schwinn 113 in their upright exercise bike lineup.

When you move up the Schwinn ladder away from the entry level bikes (Schwinn 101 and 103), you're getting better bang for your buck, and not having to invest much more money than the budget models.

The thing you'll notice first while inspecting the Schwinn 112 is the amount of adjustability of the seat and handle bars. You may think that getting the additional adjustment options isn't that big of a deal, until you start riding the bike for prolonged periods of time (that's why you're getting a bike in the first place, right?)

Schwinn 112 Key Specs and Benefits

  • 16 levels of resistance
  • Workout programs including 6 profile courses with Calorie Goal, BMI Measurement, Recovery Test, Results Mode, Quick Start and 1 Manual mode
  • LCD computer display including Time, Interval Time, RPM, Watts, Distance, Pulse, Speed, Calories, Resistance and Alpha-numeric prompts
  • Regular Schwinn Bio-Fit Comfort saddle with micro-adjustable fore/aft seat slider
  • Schwinn Bio-Fit angle adjustable handlebars with integrated grip heart rate sensors and micro-adjustable fore/aft console slider

You'll also notice that the pedal cranks, seat material and frame materials have a higher quality level and there is more heft to the entire package. The maximum user weight on the Schwinn 112 is an ample 300 pounds.

I like the Schwinn 112 upright bike a lot more than the lower end Schwinn's for the better fit and finish, and the adjustability factor. And almost came close to recommending it, but when you compare it to the Schwinn 113, there is no contest in my mind...
