Click Here To Shop For SPIN Bikes and Other Top-Rated Indoor Exercise Bikes

SPINNING brand cycling bikes continue to grow in popularity, because the ease and convenience of indoor cycling allows anyone to engage in a serious program of fitness training with high efficiency, low risk, and really not that much expense. The cost of exercise bikes has gone down as the competition has gone up, and that’s been great for exercise consumers because it means that today’s exercise bikes are of a much higher quality than comparable bikes from just a few years ago, and at extremely attractive price points. These newer bikes provide some really compelling features for a smooth and concentrated workout. This in itself is a great argument against buying a used spin bike; the newer models are affordable, well-built, and will last a very long time.

Should You Buy A Used SPIN Bike This Year?

The market for Genuine SPINNING Brand exercise bikes has really bloomed in the last few years, and this means that many fly-by-night exercisers are giving up their dust-collecting bikes and selling them on the used market, through sites like ebay and craigslist. However, despite the temptation of saving some money by buying a used SPIN bike, Schwinn, or Star Trac, I ultimately recommend paying slightly more for a brand new model? Why? Because there simply is no way to ensure that your bike has been well cared for, nor two ascertain the amount of use it has gotten. The price difference between used cycling bikes and new ones is simply not enough to justify the risk, especially considering the very low prices available on new models, which are improved every year.

The indoor bikes listed here are typically what would have been considered commercial quality only a couple of years ago. You can now own these used exercise bikes and have them in your home for less than the cost of a single year’s gym membership. Read More »
