- It's available now (who knows when BB will have the ic4 again)
- The $300 price difference will allow me to buy a Wahoo cadence meter for ~$60 on amazon (if I want to have cadence on the Peloton app screen, but I think I will be fine with just watching it on my phone)
- Price difference will also allow me to get a cheap pair of 2/3 lb dumbbells and switch out the pedals to SPD if I decide the cage isn't for me
- Build quality seems pretty comparable
- The free class trial with Echelon will save me the cost of the Peloton classes for the trial period (I think the Echelon classes won't be as good as Peloton but I'll use them until the trial runs out)
Cadence sensor: $65
SPD pedals: ~$100? (for something half decent)

For a ~$150 price difference, the IC4 seems like a no brainer?

The echelon is also missing a heart rate sensor, which the IC4 has.

I would agree the echelon is good value. However, if in the end you're going to get SPD pedals, heart rate sensor, and a cadence sensor, it almost diminishes the price difference imo.

Hahaha I ended up snagging a Schwinn on Friday, November 20th when BestBuy had them back in stock. I had the same logic as you after I saw them in stock at BB.

Just noticed that the Best Buy link says “Page not found”. Is that just because they don’t have any in stock or because they’re not selling it anymore?

They will typically remove the page when its out of stock. When its in stock, or about to be, the page will go up again. This is how they've done it several times its been in and out of stock so far.

Web page seems to be back up! Hopefully that means we’re closer to it being in stock again

Is it just me or is Peloton now $17 a month instead of $13?
How many of you have jumped ship to Apple Fitness as a result? (but you need to buy the Apple watch which is a downer for me.

I signed up on November 24, 2020 and the price was $16.99 per month so it must have gone up before then.

Did you see it back in stock or just that the page had come back? I've been watching it for about a month now and haven't seen it be in stock at all.

Has anyone actually received word about the delivery dates? This is getting next level absurd.

They cancelled a previous Schwinn IC4 order of mine after waiting a week with Invalid Date.

I ordered again on January 6th. Despite them jacking up the price $200 and restocking WITHIN TWO DAYS of the cancellation.

I feel like a masochist at this point. Still showing Invalid Date. If they cancel on me a second time, maybe I’m the fool?

I would definitely contact customer service and ask them to honour the price of your first order, since they cancelled it.

Every time it pops up on the website it says that backorders will ship on the 21st, so hopefully that's true? I haven't managed to place an order but have been stalking their site.
