SOURCE: The tension on the recumbent exercise bike does not get hard

If your bike has magnetic resistance and you changed the batteries this should make your tension work properly. Since it did not I believe that there are magnets somewhere on your bike that are wearing out. Or it could be a computer part. Your manual should tell what part you need to order and replace. I hope this information has been helpful.

Also make sure the batteries that you put in your bike are really new ones. Sometimes you can purchase new batteries at a store and they are actually a little weak. I had this problem with an elyptical trainer and I went and got other batteries and this fixed the problem.

SOURCE: No resistance when I pedal the stationary exercise bike

Hi,

I looked into this thinking is must be a simple belt, or tention wheel, but these devices are much more complex than the average exercise machine. See the Recumbent selection here.

It appears that the tentioning device is a magnetic brake.
This would require that it be plugged into a power source and programmed to provide a desired tention.
I've never used one of these so I can't say what kind of programming options there are or where they are found.

Hope this helps.
Richard.

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.

What are the benefits of recumbent exercise bike?


Recumbent exercise bikes offer a few benefits. First of all, they have lower back support, which is important for people with low back problems. Another benefit is that put less pressure on the knees compared to other exercise bikes. Moreover, if you have limited space available, these chairs are a great choice since they are very compact.

What's better a recumbent or an upright exercise bike?


Recumbent bike works best for elderly people with back and hip problems because of the relaxed position and the angle that put's less pressure on those areas. Upright exercise bike works on more areas than the recumbent bikes including the lower abdominal muscles.
