Takeaway: The signature feature of the dual action Schwinn Airdyne AD6 is the fan: The harder you pedal, and the faster you work those arms, the more resistance is generated. It can deliver a killer workout for users looking to build up their fitness. Just keep in mind that the noise level will build up as well. While it's not the cheapest Airdyne exercise bike Schwinn offers, the mid-range AD6 provides a nice ratio of features to price.
