Because of COVID-19, the rec center cardio was not available and this takes care of that problem. We think the bike is sufficient to get the job done, and given the price point and weight, appropriate for the home. We didn't want something overly heavy and hard to move. Regardless of those constraints, the bike works well, was reasonably straightforward to put together, and answers our needs.

Was told by a cardiologist that exercising 5 days a week and a stationery bike is a must for me. So this is my first stationery bike ever. Have chosen Schwinn 170 over all other comparable models/brands. Assembled it myself! Absolutely love this bike. Still learning the navigation panel though. And I use the Schwinn app too! Thank you!

I bought this bike after looking for months for something used in my size the only downfall is that it didn't come with a dropper post

These are much more complicated to assemble and way trickier to properly adjust than rim brakes. I chose this for the disk brake which I thought was a good thing and for the aluminum fork which is found in higher-end bikes over $700 - otherwise, you'd be in the $500 range. However, I'm also a bit disappointed with the quality of several other items. The derailleur, one of the most critical components, is not a Shimano but some unknown brand. We'll see how it goes.

This definitely seems to be a quality bike. I’ve only had it out riding a couple of times so far. It’s pretty quick, smooth and easy to handle, but not the most comfortable (mainly the seating). Assembly wasn’t too bad getting it together, but I definitely recommend an expert for tuning (I took it to a bike shop). I do like the disc brakes and the lightness of the bike.

I was hoping to get a Diverse 3 because of the excellent reviews, but couldn't find one and settled for the 2. It is a very good bike. Much better quality than I anticipated, exactly as described, very well packaged and those pieces that were already assembled were put together very carefully. The gears were perfectly tuned. The bike rides and shifts well. It feels sturdy and the Shimano components, though lower-end, perform very well. Not sure how I could be more satisfied at this price. Thank you Vilano and Cycling for Less.

Love this bike! Only $250, if I ever upgrade I will look at more Vilanos!

It's a damn nice bike, But the instructions on how to assemble were a bit vague. A bigger page with actual images would be much appreciated, the instructions sheet was small and were a tad confusing in wording. That aside, the bike rides great, just make sure to do a once-over before riding, so you can tighten anything. Don't assume all of the bolts and nuts are tightened from the factory. Even the small version of this seems to be a bit tall. I'm 5'6, and I have to hop up a bit to get on. I love it, the paint finish is brilliant, nice matte army green.

For the price, you should probably buy it. I found the seat uncomfortable but know others were ok with it - replaced it with one that is softer and has shocks. Also, you will likely need to adjust everything...brakes, gears etc. With some YouTube videos, you can do it all if you’re handy. If you’re not comfortable with that kind of stuff, you prob should buy a bike from a bike shop. It does look quite good, though.

Took it out for the first ride yesterday rode about 20kms and it was perfect, with no rattling or noises coming from the frame, the breaks are extremely sharp and it rode very smoothly the whole way. Ultimately the bike is in mint condition, super stylish and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to cruise around the city or go for small bike trips. It doesn’t go super fast but faster than most. I am considering buying another one for my partner. I bought a very secure lock with a wire to thread through because in Toronto bike theft is very big.
