High-performing. Durable. Comfortable. These are just some of the adjectives used to describe the Schwinn IC4 Indoor Cycling Bike when we recently reviewed it in detail. And now, you’re in luck because it’s on offer at Amazon with a massive $400 off for a limited time only.
Our guide to the best exercise bike features the Schwinn’s IC4 bike, and for good reason. You can easily clip in a water bottle and a tablet for an easy and comfortable ride. The race-style seat is height adjustable and there are 100 different resistant levels.
We love that it can be used with cycling apps such as Peloton or Zwift without buying indoor bikes from these manufacturers, because these are traditionally more expensive in comparison to Schwinn’s IC4 Bike. A two-year warranty is also included.

Price history: This deal is the lowest price we’ve seen in the 30 days at Amazon. Amazon and Best Buy are offering similar prices, whereas Walmart’s prices are $200 higher.
Reviews consensus: The Schwinn IC4 is a great stationary exercise bike that has the perfect combination of excellent design and performance at a budget friendly price. It provides a premium experience, is easy to set up and use, and the almost silent flywheel makes it a pleasure to ride.

Featured in guides: Best exercise bikes
Buy it if: You’re looking for a high-performing and premium exercise bike. Schwinn’s IC4 Indoor Cycling Bike is easy to assemble and move around, has a crisp LED screen, and we love that the flywheel is almost silent. This makes it ideal for people living in shared accommodation or who like working out while everyone else is still in bed.
Don't buy it if: Compared to the Peloton Bike, the content that you get with the JRNY app is limited. The power lead is short, and we disliked that the heart rate monitor needed syncing with app every time you used it.
