I just recently bought a used Johnny G Schwinn Spinner Pro. I brought it home and it vibrates the whole floor when I use it. This normally wouldn't be an issue, but I live on the second floor of an apartment building. Any ideas on what I could do to cut down on the vibration? An specialize mats?

Get a mat. I think there might be some examples on the Spinning website, but I'm not sure. Really anything designed to fit under most cardio equipment will work. A mat made for a trainer might also work, but I'm not sure if they're thick enough for how heavy those spin bikes are. A mat will help absorb the noise and vibration. Also be sure the legs of the bike stand are level.. in case your floor isn't.

I have no suggestions, our spin bike (Vega Spin Bike

doesn't do this... though it does rattle a bit when my sons push their cadence up over 160 and sounds positively noisy when 15 1/2 year old exceeeds 230...

But no vibrations on the floor... but we are a one level house, with solid foundations...

yeah, rubber mat or rug underneath to dampen the vibrations.
