    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!

    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.

What's the best exercise bike there is?


It is very difficult because there are two main versions of exercise bikes, so I've picket two of each type. If you prefer an upright bike the Schwinn 140 Upright Bike is the best pick, if you're more into recumbent bikes the best option is Nautilus R514 Recumbent Bike, both of them won the 2011 best exercise bikes.

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.
