Are exercise bikes good?

Absolutely, and there are plenty of exercise bike benefits (opens in new tab) that come with powering the pedals. Not only do they help you melt the calories, but they also get your heart and lungs pumping which builds your cardiovascular fitness, too. Exercise bikes even made it into our competitive round-up for the best exercise machine to lose weight (opens in new tab).

But just because an exercise bike on sale (opens in new tab) has caught your eye, there are some factors to consider before you hop on the saddle. Exercise bikes are great for improving your health, but they're not all built equal. 

If you're looking for high-tech features like a touchscreen, on-demand library, and advanced metric tracking, brands like Peloton (opens in new tab)could slot perfectly into your life. If you're just keen to save space and hassle, you can afford to pick up a basic no-frills model at more than half the price. 

Why buy an exercise bike on Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day covers July 12-13 this year, and rewards Prime members with a wealth of wonderful discounts across various brands and categories. Not a member? You can still sign up for a free trial (opens in new tab) to access discounts. 

It might seem like a no brainer to swoop in on exercise bike deals during this time then, right? Well yes, as the cost of living continues to increase, this slashing of prices is just the tonic we all need. So, if you're in the market for a new exercise bike, it's a brilliant time to buy.

And although Prime Day is still building in popularity, it hasn't hit the heady heights of the post-Christmas January sales just yet, so you might just be in luck when it comes to stock. But increased demand can take its toll on manufacturing and production, so it's best not to wait around if you've found your favorite model, as it could be snapped up fast.

We recommend checking out daily deals, coupons, and spotlight deals each day to see what's available.

Why should you wait to buy an exercise bike?

Competitors are now launching anti-Prime Day deals to lure customers, which means you can find plenty of opportunities to save elsewhere. Before you head straight to the Anazib checkout, it could be worth having a shop around to see what else is out there. 

You might also find the brand of bike you want isn't available on Prime or won't ship to your location, so checking other retailers is a must if you're set on your style.

Some models, like the Schwinn IC4 Indoor Cycling Bike (opens in new tab), for example, list updated prices leading up to – and during – Prime Day, so you might run the risk of buying too early rather than waiting it out for further price drops. This bike is currently pedaling a 37% discount at Amazon. (opens in new tab) 

Make sure your address is updated with your current location when you're searching online, and we also recommend signing up for notifications on your favorite products – this way you're the first to know when price or stock changes. Not found what you need? Holding out for sale events later in the year could be your answer.
