Question about Schwinn Original Airdyne

2 Answers

I have an older schwinn airdyne with the speedometer cable. The gear that the speedometer cable attaches to on the wheel has gone bad, thus not allowing the load meter to register. I have a good donor gear, but I can't seem to figure out how to remove the wheel to install it. Any help?? Thanks!

I would take it in for service and let the professionals give it a tune up. You have a very good machine and I am sure that it needs to have the bottom bracket tightened and lubed. We have sold over 5000 Schwinn Air Dynes since 1981 and they are always worth fixing. So give it some love and it will be with you forever. Doctors and sports teams love these machines because it has a measured workload and they can write a program for you. We sell lots of excercise machines, treadmills etc but the Schwinn Air Dyne is the best of all of them.

What kind of batteries does the schwinn Airdyne take its about 22 yrs old?


Most computer console batteries for Airdynes are AA, you'll have to open up the console/meter housing in the back to replace them. I will be attaching a link to a diagram of the housing. Hope this helps, sincerely SportSmith..

I have an older (25+years) Schwinn airdyne bike. The mchanism on the front wheel hub that drives the cable to the speedometer is not working. As a result, cable not driven and no load or speed...


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.

Owner's manual for older Schwinn Airdyne

Follow this link and you can download the owners manual as well as the exploded parts schematics. There will be information about the different years. other than the consoles they have remained the same for 20 + years. If you ever need to replace the bottom bearing be sure to get the lock ring as well. It changed from left hand thread to right. Thats it. You can also upgrade the console to the newer version. A little expensive but with proper care a 20 year old Airdyne will last till the frame rusts out from under it.
