YOSUDA Indoor Cycling Bike Stationary
The YOSUDA. Haven't you heard of it? That's probably because the company only makes exercise bikes. This is a super quiet, belt-driven bike that won't drown out the TV while you're getting in your afternoon workout. Overall, the YOSUDA is a good bike with a killer 30-day full refund guarantee and 1-year free parts replacement warranty. While this bike is definitely made with the budget-conscious in mind, it’s also one of the most highly rated on Amazon with over 700 reviews and 4.3/5 stars as of this writing.
Not to brag, but the Women's Health Indoor Bike is one of the best exercise bikes you can buy, and it's got the features and results to back that up. With multiple levels of resistance, this bike's flywheel helps you get a quiet and smooth riding experience that will still give you a full-body cardio workout. And with a padded, oversized seat, this will be a comfortable ride (if you choose to remain seated).
Best for Beginners
This no-frills bike might not have all the bells and whistles of other models, but it'll get the job done—for less than $350. Use it with your favorite app or on its own for an endorphins boost and a great sweat sesh.
Best Smooth Ride
Looking for an indoor bike that will give you a smooth ride? The MaxKare Stationary Bike features a belt-driven mechanism that ensures smooth and quiet workouts while its 44 pound flywheel guarantees stability during your cycle.
Best for Tech
The LCD monitor on the Cyclace allows you to track your time, speed, distance, calories burned and odometer while you are cycling. You can also stream your favorite classes thanks to the integrated phone/tablet holder that accommodates most devices. As far as the bike itself, it offers a comfortable seat cushion and various resistance levels that allows you to really build up a sweat.
Most Classic Ride
This durable stationary bike boasts features such as a padded contoured seat, easily adjustable handlebars, and built-in tech that tracks your progress (distance, cals burned, heart rate) and offers 29 present exercise programs. You can also toggle between 25 resistant levels by simply clicking a button on the computer's console.
This fully customizable bike doesn't come with all the bells and whistles of the more expensive models, but it's effective and will save you money. It offers a tablet holder, a smooth and silent ride, and magnetic resistance.
Best for Sneakers
This Joroto bike is one of the most affordable alternatives to the Peloton. Although it doesn't come with a screen, the handlebars can easily hold your tablet, letting you watch whatever you want while you spinning up a sweat.
Best Stationary Bike
Peloton's at-home stationary bike syncs its users with highly qualified trainers as they ride along to a heart-pumping playlist from Peloton's extensive music library. The bike itself is sleek, compact, and super quiet. But you'll still get the feel of being in the studio, thanks to the jumbo-sized monitor, live classes, and real-time leaderboard.
Best New Bike
SoulCycle's new at-home bike will bring the endorphin-boosting experience from its fitness studios into your living room or home gym. The bike features a 21-inch screen and pin-drop quiet wheels. With the monthly membership you'll get access to their surround-sound classes and noteworthy trainers. You can preorder your bike now!
