If you have ever gone online to look for a spinning bike, you will know that some of the best ones, ie the ones that you might find in your local spinning class, can easily cost $1500 – $2000 or more.

Therefore I thought it would be a good idea to discuss a few spin bikes that are a lot more affordable and offer real value for money, and have managed to find three in particular that meet these criteria.

The first of which is the Sunny Health & Fitness Pro Indoor Cycling Bike, which could easily be described as an entry-level machine, but is still perfect for home use.

Despite its relatively low cost, this particular model was named by this site as one of the best spinning bikes in 2014/2015, and it’s hard to disagree because this bike has an impressive 40 pound flywheel, a full range of resistance levels in order to provide a challenging workout, and a strong heavy-duty construction that can handle even the most rigorous of workouts.

It also provides you with a smooth and very quiet workout, which is always beneficial if you are planning on using one of these bikes at home, and is comfortable to use because it has an adjustable seat and adjustable handlebars. So overall I think this represents excellent value for money.

Another of the best spinning bikes for the money is the Horizon Fitness M4 Indoor Cycle, which is a little more expensive, but is still a fraction of the price of some of the top-end models.

This is another strong, well-made bicycle that has a very large flywheel and delivers a smooth and very quiet workout. It also has all of the essentials that you should always look for, such as an adjustable seat and handlebars, and adjustable resistance so that you can increase or decrease the intensity of your spinning workout.

Unlike many other bicycles in this price bracket, it also benefits from having a water bottle holder and a basic LCD console that enables you to track your time, speed, distance and calories burned, which is another reason why it is good value for money.

Finally if you are looking to purchase a spin bike that is on a par with some of the commercial bikes but is nowhere near as expensive, then the Sole Fitness SB700 Exercise Bike is worth considering.

This one has a really solid construction and a weight capacity of 300 pounds, and comes with two water bottle holders, as well as a larger flywheel (48 pounds) and a slightly better LCD console than the model above.

This bicycle is ideal for performing spinning workouts at home, and will also benefit outdoor cyclists during the winter, for example, because it offers a very realistic riding experience with its adjustable positioning and its variable resistance levels. However its the strength and performance of this bicycle that puts it on a par with some of the more expensive models.
