Save $400: As of Nov. 4, the 4th generation Schwinn indoor cycling exercise bike is up for $799.99 on Amazon. That’s roughly 38% off and beats Walmart’s current sale price of $999.99.
If you’ve currently been eyeing the Peloton bike but seek a more budget-friendly alternative from a reputable company, the Schwinn IC4 indoor cycling exercise bike might be the one for you. Though major conglomerates such as Walmart often run great deals, at the time of publication Amazon won the discount war at $799.99.
Retailing at an average price of $1299.99 — a bargain against the Peloton even then — the Schwinn IC4 also offers the convenience of a challenging home workout without the hassle of a commute to the gym.
But that’s not even the best part: if you can find previous generations of the Schwinn indoor exercise bike, you may even save a few more bucks.
Featuring the well-known Schwinn mountain bike seat, this exercise machine also includes adjustable handles, clips that fasten toes to the pedals, and a device holder for your tablet or smartphone.
A few catches? You’ll need a JRNY membership, but this is free for up to one year with the purchase of a new exercise bike. After that, a subscription will run you $149 per year or $19.99 per month.
The Schwinn IC4 indoor exercise bike is also compatible with Peloton and Zwift apps for users who prefer other bike-riding or workout experiences. Complete with 100 micro-resistance levels to choose from, this bike is sure to benefit both inexperienced and veteran fitness enthusiasts alike.
Note that the bike will require assembly and it weighs approximately 106 pounds (48kg) without the packaging. Additionally, a few Amazon members mention that the bike is challenging to use for people who are less than 5 feet (1.52 meters) despite the fact that Schwinn says the bike is made for people who are 4’6″ and up.
Despite this, the bike enjoys favorable feedback overall and several reviewers recommend buying a treadmill lubricant to prevent unseemly squeaks that may disturb your workout at higher resistance levels.
