The seat is extra wide and easily adjustable. The handlebars are also easily adjustable using a slider, making it easy for other people to use the Schwinn 130 if required.

Below are some user reviews that I have found and included here so you dont have to search so many sites for a good range of reviews. The main source I have found for good quality exercise bike reviews by users is amazon, but there are other good reviews which I will summarise and included here to help you make the best choice for what you are looking for in an exercise bike.
The Reviewer was happy with their purchase. The main draw back that the reviewer had was that the seat was not comfortable for them after working out for over half an hour, even with special padded bike pants. Also, the frame of the Schwinn 130 did not feel as solid as the reviewer wanted.
The pluses included the workout programs that provide good variety and the Schwinn 130 is silent, so watching tv or listening to the radio is not a problem.
Overall they were happy with the purchase.
Rating for Schwinn 130 - 4 stars
The seconder reviewer rated the Schwinn 130 poorly.
First of all the heart rate monitor cable was broken. Secondly, there was a knocking sound after each revolution of the pedals, and because of this the pedal action was not smooth.
They also agree that the frame feels less than solid.
Overall they were not happy with their purchase.
