Indoor bike-Schwinn vs cheaper knock offs?

I use one of those basic, solid looking Schwinn bikes regularly at gym (older model) but now I want to buy one for home use too. Not really interested in the apps and online community training aspect, my heart rate monitor and fitness watch is enough for me.

So currently Schwinn seems to have 3 models-

IC8 seems to be available in CH for CHF1200 (magnetic resistance)

IC7 seems to be available in CH for CHF800-1000.

IC2 seems to be available in CH for CHF700

I think IC2/7 will be enough for my needs.


VS



Then there are some bikes available for under CHF500, are they really that inferior for basic cardio? Visually they look solid enough but could the flywheel, braking system, chain etc really fall apart too soon? It will get used daily for at least 2 hours and won't be a house decoration item


For CHF219
For CHF500
For CHF513


Any opinion or personal experience? Thanks
