At-home fitness bikes are certainly nothing new—especially for those who work from home or simply don’t have the extra hours in the day to make the commute back and forth—but they’ve never been quite as in-demand as they are nowadays. Given that many gyms, fitness studios, and some exercise classes are still closed for the time being, virtual fitness and at-home workouts have never been more popular. For cycling and spin aficionados, the premium Peloton bike has been a game-changer over the course of the last couple of years, allowing loyal converts to the $2K+bike to get the same in-class experience from the comfort of their own homes.

Unlike traditional exercise bikes, the Peloton is engineered with a slew of upgraded features that help keep you accountable and motivated—just like you would if you were going to an IRL class with a helpful instructor cheering you on. From live streaming functionality to 24/7 access to deluxe virtual fitness classes, and a super-advanced touch-screen that allows you to stream your favorite content and music, there’s plenty of reasons that justify the indoor bike’s steep price tag.

Fortunately, if you’re just not quite ready to shell out a month’s worth of rent to elevated your at-home workout setup, there are a slew of comparable alternatives to the Peloton bike at much more palatable price points. The Echelon Connect cycling bikes are perhaps the most well-known Peloton dupe, and while it’s still about a grand, it’s nearly half the price of the original. Plus, Echelon also offers financing payment options, making the investment just $22 a month (that’s much less than a gym membership!). But, if you’re still not exactly comfortable with shelling out a grand for a bike, we get it. Fortunately, there are plenty of other more affordable options to choose from as well. Scroll through below to check out our favorite Peloton bike dupes.
