SAVE $200: As of Feb. 25, the $1,999 NordicTrack Commercial S22i Studio Cycle ships for free from Amazon with scheduled delivery date availability in as soon as four days.
From the MYX to the Bowflex C6, the Schwinn IC4, the Cyclace, and the Echelon Smart Connect Bike EX3, there’s no shortage of excellent Peloton alternatives out there. But most of them come with a catch: The mid-pandemic demand for spin bikes and another home gym equipment is so high that they’re backordered for weeks, sometimes even months. (Personally speaking, the Schwinn bike I ordered back on February 16 is still a good six weeks out.)
The NordicTrack Commercial S22i Studio Cycle is one rare exception: Currently sitting at its $1,999 MSRP on Amazon, where it normally sells for $200 over retail price, the bike ships for free and arrives in mere days with your choice of scheduled delivery date. (Meanwhile, you’d pay $199 for “Threshold Delivery” to your front doorway if you ordered it via NordicTrack’s website.) At the time of writing on Feb. 25, you could set a date as soon as March 1 in multiple cities across the country.
(Yes, it’s a hair pricier than the standard Peloton Bike, but the S22i arrives in a matter of days as opposed to six to 10 weeks. Think of it this way: You’ll be getting two months of extra workouts for $100, which is less than what you’d pay for a gym membership in a major metropolitan area.)
Updated at the beginning of the year, the S22i is one of the closer Peloton Bike+ dupes we’ve seen with its magnetic resistance, live resistance and incline adjustments, Bluetooth support, and 22-inch smart HD touchscreen, which can swivel a full 360 degrees depending on whether you’re riding the bike or using its display to watch a workout class. And speaking of: The bike comes with a free 12-month iFit family membership (a $396 value), which gets you access to an ever-expanding library of live and on-demand workout videos led by personal trainers. (Two three-pound dumbbells are also included — you’ll need them for certain exercises.)
