Best of 2021 AwardSmart-Review Commentary: The newest Schwinn IC4 indoor cycling bike sells for a fraction of the Pelaton bike, but can connect to the Pelaton APP and dozens of other APPS via its built-in Bluetooth®. You can use your tablet, smartphone, or Smart TV to display the workouts, scenary, and other information. The bike features silent, maintenance free magnetic resistance.

The Schwinn IC4 has a backlit console to display all of the workout data. The included Bluetooth® LE (BLE) heart rate armband will provide heart-rate data to the console. The seat and handlebars have both horizontal and vertical adjustment options for best fit. This model has a very good warranty and should fit most needs as its maximum user weight is 300 lbs. The Schwinn IC4 is a fraction of the cost of a Pelaton Bike, but can link into the Pelaton APP, making it a Smart-Review Top Pick and a very good value (when compared to Pelaton). This model won our BEST of 2021 for cycling bikes under $1000…
