Founded in Chicago in 1895, Schwinn has been in the bicycle industry for more than 120 years. Ignaz Schwinn’s brand dominated the American bike industry for most of the 20th century. Having made their mark on the road bicycle market, Schwinn also entered the commercial fitness market. Today I will be looking at one of their fitness bikes, the Schwinn 270 Recumbent Bike.
In this review, I will discuss what a recumbent bike is, how it works and why anyone should choose a recumbent bike over an upright bike. I will also compare the 270 to the Schwinn 230, and reveal where to buy the Schwinn 270 Recumbent bike at the best price.
With this bike, Schwinn has laid claim to the title of the best recumbent bike on the market. In this review, I aim to find out if that is true.
Before we can look at the Schwinn 270 in detail, however, let’s look at what a recumbent bike is.
