The best indoor spin bikes and exercise bikes on Amazon that are in-stock

[Original Post 23-03-2020]

[Updated 03-11-2020] Updated stock levels, pricing and added new products

When I first wrote this in March, I never thought we would be experiencing lockdowns in November, but here we are. Gyms are closing and the weather is awful making outdoor activities less appealing than they were back in March.

While there are plenty of ways to work out at home for free, things like exercise bikes can offer an excellent alternative to the gym. They are more affordable and smaller than treadmills while making less noise.

There are a lot of options on the market, I am sure most of us would love a Peloton, but their monthly membership is more than my gym membership. I am a big fan of smart turbo trainers and Zwift, but they are also quite expensive too.

The options that are currently available on Amazon are a mixed bag, it would seem high demand means a lot of stock is not available for a little while.

Best reviewed bikes on Amazon

I have not used any of these bikes personally, I have just highlighted the ones with the best reviews on Amazon. I have included two Sportstech models because they are well-reviewed, I just don’t like the fact they have raised the prices very recently.

If you are not very fit you can probably get away with a bike that has a lighter flywheel. With upright bikes, they have a lighter flywheel as they then use magnetic resistance to control the difficulty better.

With all exercise equipment, you get what you pay for, if you are very fit, or hope to increase your fitness considerably then you will quickly outgrow cheaper products.

Companies that have hiked their prices – Sportstech

Some companies are exploiting this by hiking their prices. The brand called Sportstech who claims to be a German quality brand is particularly bad for it, several of their products I have checked have seen a price rise since March. These tend to be their (slightly) more affordable products, which I imagine what most people are currently looking at,

For example, the Sportstech RSX400 Rowing Machine was £359 from January through to 16th of March then it jumped up to £419, and now £429, that’s almost a 20% price hike. The Sportstech F17 treadmill was £529 from January and is now £615 which is a 16% price rise. Their premium price products don’t appear to be affected.
