How Much Does a Spin Bike Cost?

A spin bike is a very approachable cardio machine for your home gym. That means many people who aren’t familiar with gym equipment are wondering how much they should spend on one. I’ve done some digging into the numbers and here’s how much spin bikes cost.

Spin bikes can cost anywhere from $150 to $2500. A solid and smooth spin bike can be bought for $300 and up. People who want a bike that’s high quality but doesn’t have all the latest tech and mandatory subscriptions are best off with a spin bike that costs $500-$1000.

Below you can find a list of spin bike prices and what you can expect in the different price ranges.

Here’s a list I compiled with spin bike prices of a lot of popular models. This is where the information in this article is coming from.

You can see that prices for spin bikes range from $150 to about $2500. The average price of spin bikes in this list is $844. That gives some indication of what you can expect to pay but since this is not an exhaustive list it’s not a very reliable number.

Here are some other observations from this list:

  • Wide Price Range: There is a significant price range between the least expensive and most expensive stationary bikes, reflecting the variety of options available to consumers at different budget levels.
  • Average Price: The average price of the bikes in the chart is approximately $844.43, indicating that there is a mix of budget-friendly and premium options in the market.
  • Popular Models: Some of the popular models in terms of price include the Peloton Bike at $1095, the Echelon EX5 at $600, and the NordicTrack S22i at $1899.
  • Variety in Features: The chart includes bikes with different features, such as magnetic resistance, smart capabilities, and brand-specific options like Peloton’s Bike+ and Spinning’s Blade ION, which are at the higher end of the price spectrum.

A better way to look at what you can expect to pay for a spin bike is by looking at the different price ranges and matching the price range to your needs/expectations.

Spin Bike Price Ranges

How much you should pay for your stationary bike depends on your budget and how you use it. People who want a relatively relaxed workout a few times a week can get away with an entry-level model. People who want to work out hard are best served by a mid-range model. And if you want all the bells and whistles, the high-end range is where you need to look.

Let’s take a look at the different price ranges and what you can expect from them.

Entry-Level Spin Bikes ($150 – $500)

In this price range, you mostly find small brands that aren’t known. They’re often OK but parts availability and reliability are a concern with those brands. However, there are a few established brands that sell bikes in this range.

  • Basic build materials, often with a more compact and lightweight design.
  • Manual resistance adjustment.
  • Limited technology and features, if any.
  • May require some self-assembly.
  • Suitable for beginners or those on a tight budget.
  • Usually not the sturdiest or smoothest.

I’d recommend spending at least $300 on a spin bike. The models that cost less than that work but the longevity isn’t great and they often don’t feel sturdy enough to go all out on a hard workout. The YOSUDA bikes are a great starting point for affordable stationary bikes.

Yosuda Magnetic Plus

Affordable, smooth, sturdy, quiet and with magnetic resistance. This is a great deal!

Mid-Range Spin Bikes ($500 – $1,000)

There are a lot of spin bikes available in the middle of the price range. Most people will be best off with a bike in this category. They are generally reliable, smooth, and sturdy and have some nice features.

  • Improved build quality with more durable materials.
  • Adjustable features, such as seat and handlebars.
  • Better resistance mechanisms, like magnetic resistance.
  • Basic workout data displays.
  • Some pre-programmed workouts.
  • Sturdier frame and a smoother ride.
  • Good balance between price and features.

Schwinn IC4

Excellent build quality, a quiet drive and plenty of adjustment options make this a great choice.

In this price range, look at Schwinn bikes. They have several models in this price range and they are good value for money. Echelon is also a popular choice. Most people will be best off shopping in this category since you get that extra bit of quality, smoothness, and sturdiness.

High-End Spin Bikes ($1,000 – $2,500+)

Demanding people should shop in the high-end category. Here you’ll get the best materials, build quality, and customer service combined with all the tech.

  • Premium build quality with high-quality materials.
  • Advanced resistance systems, often with quiet magnetic resistance.
  • Extensive technology and features, including touchscreen displays, app connectivity, and virtual classes.
  • Extensive workout data tracking and analysis.
  • Highly adjustable and comfortable design.
  • Often comes fully assembled or with white-glove delivery.
  • Suitable for serious fitness enthusiasts and those looking for an immersive workout experience.

These bikes are for the serious athlete, people who work out hard every day, or those who want all the latest features. And of course, people who just want the best. The Peloton bikes fall into this category of course but there are alternatives.

Factors Affecting the Cost of Spin Bikes

Of course, prices don’t just come out of thin air. There are a lot of factors that impact the price you have to pay for a spin bike, here are the most important ones:

  • Materials, design, and build quality: Just like anything else, the materials used, how it’s built and the design are going to have an impact on the price. In general, a higher price will get you a better bike but you do run into diminishing returns after about $1500.
  • Features and Tech: This is a big one. Some modern spin bikes have big screens and a lot of tech built-in. This adds a lot of cost.
  • Brand: Well-known brands demand a premium price although usually this is backed up by higher quality and better warranty conditions.
  • Size: A larger bike needs more materials to be built. That means larger models will cost more.
  • Resistance Type: Different spin bikes use various resistance mechanisms, such as friction resistance, magnetic resistance, or air resistance (although those technically aren’t spin bikes anymore). The type of resistance can impact the price, with magnetic resistance typically being more expensive due to its smooth and quiet operation.
  • Weight Capacity: Spin bikes with higher weight capacity need to be sturdier and more durable. This added strength can contribute to a higher price.
  • Adjustability: Spin bikes with more adjustable features, like adjustable seats, handlebars, and resistance levels, tend to be priced higher.
  • Warranty: The length and terms of the warranty offered by the manufacturer can affect the price. A longer and more comprehensive warranty might result in a higher cost.
  • Accessories: Some spin bikes come with additional accessories, such as water bottle holders, device holders, and pre-installed workout programs. These extras can influence the price.
  • Shipping and Assembly: Shipping costs and whether the spin bike comes pre-assembled or requires assembly can also impact the overall cost.

In my experience, you want to focus on the build quality, resistance type, size, and weight capacity. The big screen is nice but you can usually get the same functionality with the iPad you’ve already got laying around. However, the basics are important. The bike should be sturdy, smooth, and fit you. A bike that’s not smooth will be frustrating long after the novelty of the big screen wears off.
