Schwinn IC2 Console

The Schwinn IC2 has a Basic LCD Console.

Schwinn IC2 Vs. Sunny Console Comparison: The Schwinn IC2 has a basic LCD console that will show your workout data while you are cycling. The Sunny does not have a workout computer and is a basic solid indoor cycling bike.

The Schwinn IC2 console gives a single readout of one of the parameters that includes speed, RPM, distance, time and calories.


Bottom Line Schwinn IC2 Vs. Sunny SF-B1002: The main difference between the models is that the Sunny SF-B1002 is a heavier duty bike, that weighs more, has a heavier flywheel for stable ride, has caged pedals, and can handle a heavier rider (up to 275 lbs.). The Sunny bike also allows you to move the seat horizontally (Fore/Aft), while the Schwinn IC2 can only move vertically. The Sunny has adjustable caged pedals. They both use friction resistance, the Sunny uses leather, and the Schwinn uses wool felt pads. These pads must be replaced from time to time.

In Schwinn’s favor the IC3 has a longer warranty, and has a simple LCD console to display some of your workout metrics.

Both bikes come in around $300, so they are similar in price.

Schwinn IC2 Residential Warranty: 5 year Frame; 1 year mechanical & electrical; 90 days labor
