The new year usually brings deals on lots of fitness equipment, even big ticket items like Peloton machines and Bowflex dumbbells. Exercise bikes, in particular, are seeing big discounts at the moment—especially if you’re willing to look at brands aside from the ever-trendy Peloton. In fact, brands like Equinox+, Nordictrack, and Echelon, boast bigger discounts than Peloton right now, so they’re worth a look.
The SoulCycle at-home bike is $1,100 off
Equinox Plus’ SoulCycle at-home exercise bike is currently $1,400 (originally $2,500) after an automatic promo code (“JOIN-PACK”) is applied. The SoulCycle at-home bike challenges you to do workouts at the beat of music and other cardio and strength training challenging workouts. Its main drawback is a lack of an automatic resistance adjustment, which you find on other bikes at this price point, but it’s a comfortable premium bike with all the other features you’d expect, like a large touch screen, great classes for $40 a month, live workouts, and other at-home workouts.

The Nordictrack Commercial Studio Cycle is 40% off
The Nordictrack Commercial Studio Cycle is currently $899 (originally $1,499), a price it hit for the first time back in December of 2023. This model compares with the Peloton Bike, since it has a lot of the same features, making it an attractive budget alternative. Here’s what you can expect from this spin bike:
This bike comes with a 22″ rotating touchscreen and a 30-day trial of the iFit subscription (it costs $39 per month afterward) that grants you access to video classes and fitness instructors. It allows for your live trainer to incline, decline, and adjust the resistance for you during your workouts (something the Peloton doesn’t do). There are a variety of fitness-level workouts to choose from, with leaderboards to compare your performances with others. You also get a fan and other accessories (stuff you usually have to pay extra for if you buy a Peloton).
Echelon has some budget spin bike options
If you’re looking for an even cheaper option than the ones mentioned above, consider these exercise bikes from Echelon. These bikes have their own membership app with endurance, climbing, and HIIT workouts starting at $11.99 per month.
