    i have the same problem. I followed all the instructions to install it correctly but i just can´t get it to work. It doesn´t seem to receive any readings from the sensor on te fork!

  • romeo803 Mar 15, 2009

    Usually the magnet(pick up) must be within 2 mm of the sensor on the fork or downpipe to work.Can't get it close enough on the Schwinn. Sorry

    I bought a Fantastic Bell monitor with 20 different reports ($ 9.00 at Walmart) and it didn't work on the Schwinn exerciser either . will make a book stand out of the speedometer shelf.

    Will use the new device on my mountian bike

SOURCE: Have a Schwinn xr7 exerciser bike, need new pedals or straps

I am not sure what type of bike you have (did not bother looking it up), but I myself too have a schwinn exercise bike (recumbent) and the straps recently broke, and when I sent customer service an email from their site they said they sell replacement straps.

I included the kind of bike I had when I inquired so the price given to me might be exclusive to my bike only, so you'll have to contact customer support yourself to see if they sell replacement straps for your bike and if so how much.

I need an owners manual for a Schwinn Recumbent Model 230 exercise bike. On line manual isn't for the 230 that i have. Will you send me one please?


We don't send anything. We are FIXYA, we are not Schwinn.

There are 5 different 230 models depending on the year. The manuals are in this link.

I've had a Schwinn 270 recumbent bike for 4 years. The resistance is completely gone. Suggestions?


I suggest you check the troubleshooting guide in the manual, as there are several causes for the resistance not changing. http://download.nautilus.com/supportdocs/AM_OM/Schwinn/SCH.270-MY17.AM-OM-W.EN.pdf I would suspect that no resistance at all might have to do with a failure of the servo motor, which appears to control resistance through interaction with magnets on the wheel.

Secondly, you can try contacting Schwinn Fitness: Customer Service

If you still can't figure out the problem you may need in-person help. Find a place that sells Schwinn exercise bikes or see if someone at a local gym that has recumbents can help you. The bike is apparently made by Nautilus.

I have an old Airdyne, probably 20-25 years old. I don't have the owner's manual any longer. All I want to know is what the rate of energy (calorie) expenditure is at each level on the speedometer. I've...


Stationary bikes provide a no impact workout because your feet never leave the bike pedals. This is preferable if you have back or joint problems that cannot tolerate repeated jarring of high impact exercises.

Stationary biking can burn 315 to 466 calories when done vigorously. This is a great exercise especially if you are trying to lose weight. You'll burn more calories in less time compared to other cardio exercises like high impact aerobics. You'll never burn this amount of calories while playing.

How about going to a Schwinn dealer who has been in business for a long time? The speedometer drivers are no longer available, you have to get it changed over to electronic. This not something that you can do on your own, it has to be done by someone who knows the product. We have been in business 40+ years and sold Air Dynes since 1979, I do know what I am saying.

You need a watch battery that can be bought at any drugstore or grocery store. It is LR44 or A76 size battery. Install the battery and tighten the little black cover and you'll be timing your workouts right away.

Battery missing for exercise bike


I have a Schwinn airdyne (model AD-3) that uses a button type battery in the count-down timer, which is above the work load indicator or the 'speedometer'. According to the manual I was given with the bike, it utilizes a 1 1/2 volt watch - type battery (LR44, A 76 or equivalent).

Hope this helps.
