Schwinn 213 Exercise Bike

The Schwinn 213 recumbent bike sits atop the Schwinn recumbent exercise lineup with models that include the Schwinn 201, Schwinn 203, and Schwinn 212 exercise bikes.

*The Schwinn 213 recumbent exercise bike is the equivalent model to the Schwinn 113 upright exercise bike. The review below was taken from that model as they share over 90% of the parts.

Yes I know that the Schwinn 213 recumbent bike is the most expensive model they make, and it's easy to recommend the 'best' model above the lower end bikes, but bear with me for a minute and let's find out why...

For starters, the Schwinn 213 isn't really that expensive of an exercise bike for the amount of value you get (under $400).

To get the comparable amount of features, the adjustability of the handlebars, seat and bio-fit pedals - and the backlit LCD console, integrated workout fan and long warranty, you'll have to spend much more on a comparable model.

Schwinn 213 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
  • Backlit 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

I'll also go back and reiterate a point I made when comparing the Schwinn 201 and 203 recumbent bikes to make a point about investing in equipment.

The Schwinn 213 packs additional features and conveniences that far exceed the small investment you would make buying the Schwinn 212. It doesn't even make sense to get the lesser model when you gain so much for so little invested.

The Scwinn 213 exercise bike is my 'best buy pick' in this price range and a great all around bike for the home user on a budget...
