Advance on airdyne

They are asking 150 firm on this older model of airdyne. Everything works great they say. What do you you guys think.

Re: Advance on airdyne

That is the model I have, which I bought off craiglist for about $100. It is solid as a rock. Take it for a spin and you'll be able to tell if everything works. The older models don't track calories, though, so if you want one that has a monitor that tracks calories, you'll need to find a newer one.

Re: Advance on airdyne

Michael is correct about the cal counter etc. You can (I think) buy a kit to upgrade that bike to a more modern computer. I think it is about $300.

Re: Advance on airdyne

I'd pick it up regardless unless you absolutely need cals.

I have 5 of em. 3 that track cals properly, one of these older styles with the load indicator, and one that doesn't even have a monitor at all.

You can still do tons of stuff on it, intervals by effort rather than tracking cals.

Or, you could buy it and probably sell it for twice as much

Re: Advance on airdyne

Jay is right, you can do tons of stuff on them regardless. I am a little anal when it comes to equipment. For $150 it is a pretty good deal. They are pretty much indestructible

Here is a link to the kit to upgrade the monitor.

Re: Advance on airdyne

$150 is a good price, these units (with a bit of maintenance) last forever. Offer the seller a bit less, but don't feel bad about paying their asking price.

Like stated above, these (without the calorie meter) are great for tabata and other interval training, warming up, cooling down, and breaking up soreness. I recently picked one up and use it almost daily.

Also, these take up very little space in the gym.
