Exercise Bikes...Cost of yours if you own one

I'm looking into exercise bikes. Can I ask what you paid for yours if you own one?

Just curious what other Pters are/were open to spending on an in home stationary exercise bike (whether recumbent of not...).

TIA!!

I have a Schwinn Airdyne that we bought about 5 years ago. I chose this one because it also works my arms and obliques.

I have this one. I bought it because it had really good reviews, it is similar to the one that I used for spin class at the gym, and it didnít cost too much (it was $271 when I bought it). I have only had it for about two months, but have done spin classes on the peloton app and the apple fitness app and I have no issues with it so far.

I bought this over the summer when I was doing physical therapy for my knee. The bike is the only exercise I can do without knee pain. I didn't want to spend a ton because I was hoping to eventually get back to my gym when all this is over. It is very comfortable and can be folded up and put in a closet.

I like the little ledge that holds my ipad while I am on the bike.

I bought a Marcy recumbent bike from Walmart for about $150. I needed the recumbent style since I have both knees replaced and one knee only bends enough for me to sit in a chair (about 100 degrees). I canít use it more than 15 minutes at a time since my knee still hurts me a lot, but itís enough to get in the movement I need.

Thanks for your replies! I am looking at Amazon, too, so I appreciate the links!

I am still unsure...I am so cheap when it comes to spending $$ on myself!

I bought a Sunny B1509 off Amazon two years ago. I paid close to $300. It's on sale for $399 now. I use the Peloton App which costs me $14 a month for an endless supply of classes - spin, tread, yoga, Pilates, strength, meditation, stretch, etc. I'm almost at 1,000 rides! I did switch out the pedals for clip-in, so I bought those, clip-in shoes, a cadence and a HR monitor

PM me if you have any questions.

We have a Feierdun folding bike. I donít remember exactly what we paid, but it was between $150 and $175. Itís nothing fancy, but I like it.

Before my total left hip replacement, I started physical therapy. They have a NuStep recumbent bike. I fell in love with it, and just before my post-surgery PT ended, I bit the bullet and purchased one for myself at home. It had a hefty price tag ($3800), but is the best thing to do for me. Both my DH and DD2 use it too.

It has never had to be repaired, oiled, or otherwise maintained.

I had a Schwinn AirDyne for a number of years, but, I have short arms and legs and could just never get it adjusted to the point that it was comfortable or that I was getting the benefits of the machine.

With our long winters, my NuStep has been a godsend.

I got this one off Amazon last January for just under $200. It has three positions and it has arm straps and leg straps to exercise those too. It's very quiet. I like it, but I don't use it as much as I should haha! Got to get better at that!

My sister has a Schwinn exercise bike. She's had it for 15 years, and it's still going strong! Don't forget to buy a mat to go under your exercise bike.
