The Airdyne also gives you an upper body workout with the two rowing handles. The weighted flywheel would be the most common method of resistance found in most upright exercise bikes and provides for the greatest level of adjustment through either digital or dial adjustments.
Schwinn’s upright exercise bikes also include LCD displays to keep you informed of your training progress. Schwinn’s 140 exercise bike even has built-in stabilizers to help keep everything balanced as you spin those pedals rapidly during the peaks of your workout.
