If you'll be using an exercise bike often, you'll want one that's sturdy, durable, and silent so you can exercise whenever you like. Today, one of the best exercise bikes on the market — the Schwinn IC4 (known as the 800IC in the U.K.) — is on sale and available for just under $1,000 at Amazon, but for a limited time only, even cheaper over at Walmart for just $899.

During our Schwinn IC4 Exercise Bike review, we found many things to love about this bike. It took less than an hour to set up from start to finish, and because of the transportation wheels, it was easy to move around. The bike is comfortable and sturdy, and the four-way adjustable handlebars can be easily adapted to suit your height.

The crisp LED screen is another highlight, and you can charge your device while riding. The display shows all the useful metrics you'd want, such as time, calories, speed, distance, resistance level, and pulse. If you already have a subscription to Peloton or Kinomap, you can sync the bike to these for access to a larger library of live and on-demand classes.

Don't miss out — get this highly-rated exercise bike before Walmart's sale stock runs out. If you've missed the deal on Walmart, head to Amazon where you can still make a decent saving.
