The 5 Best Spin Bikes for Your At-Home Spin Studio (AKA Your Basement)
Welp, it doesn’t look like Flywheel or Soulcycle will be opening their doors again anytime soon. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up your fave form of cardio for the forseeable future. Tons of riders have been taking matters into their own hands—by buying their own spin bikes and tuning in to Instagram lives from their favorite instructors. And no, it doesn’t necessarily have to set you back thousands of dollars. Here, the five best spin bikes on the market that you can use at home.
1. pooboo Indoor Cycle Bike
OK, you can’t beat the under $400 price point on this one. And reviewers assure that it’s not cheaply made. “It is stable, quiet and performs well,” writes one reviewer. Plus, it has transport wheels in the front so you can easily move it out of the way when it’s not in use.
2. NordicTrack Commercial Studio Cycle and 1-Year iFit Membership
This is about as close as you can get to a Peloton—without actually paying Peloton prices. Its 22-inch HD touchscreen allows you to stream on-demand workouts, and each bike comes with a year of free access. The coolest part? This bike automatically adjusts your incline and resistance in class so you don’t have to worry about fiddling with it.
3. Sunny Health & Fitness Indoor Cycling Bike
Dim the lights, blast some music and you’ll hardly realize that you’re in your living room, not riding at your favorite studio. This bike’s magnetic resistance system offers a smooth, quiet ride just like the one you’d expect in class.
4. L Now Indoor Cycling Bike
With two-way adjustable handlebars and a four-way adjustable seat, you can customize this bike to fit your preferences. And the LCD display lets you keep track of your time, speed, distance and calories burned. It’s so convenient, you might not even want to venture back to spin class once social distancing is over.
5. Peloton Bike Basic Package
It’s the OG at-home spin bike for a reason. Users love its on-demand and live classes that make you really feel like you’re in the studio. At-home delivery is included with the basic package, so be prepared for Peloton to deliver a fully-assembled bike right to your door. Just be aware that you’ll have to pay a $39 per month all-access fee to be able to view classes.
