- Flywheel bikes are now available for online ordering via Amazon Prime and Best Buy.
- The bike itself retails for just under $2,000; there’s also a bike-and-tablet combination.
- Best Buy plans on stocking the bikes in 100 of their stores by the end of the year.
Amazon Prime has all the basics: bulk packages of toilet paper, any book you could possibly want…and now, Flywheel bikes.
For the uninitiated, Flywheel is an indoor-cycling studio that offers a variety of classes that let you track exactly how you’re doing each class so you can compete against others taking it (and yourself). Last year, Flywheel launched the Flywheel home bike, a version of its high-performance bike that’s compatible with on-demand and real-time programming.
But now, the bike’s also available on Amazon Prime and through Best Buy’s site. The bike retails for just under $2,000 at both outlets (that’s the same as what you’d pay buying the bike directly through Flywheel, FYI). Best Buy also has plans to stock the Flywheel bikes in 100 Best Buy stores by the end of the year, according to Business Insider.
With the bike, “elite” instructors “hand-picked from studios across the country,” offer up high-intensity interval training and performance tracking help you take great classes at home, according to a press release from the company. There are thousands of live and recorded cycling and “off-bike” classes for you to chose from, ranging from five minutes (when you’re super pressed for time) to 60 minutes. New workouts are added daily.
The bike also comes with wifi, has multiple seat and handlebar settings, has two water bottle holders, and comes with weighted bars.
We’ve actually tested the Flywheel bike and can confirm that it’s awesome for any cycling fanatic who wants the standard Flywheel experience, minus the commute to a fitness studio and having to plan around a pre-scheduled class.
Worth noting: Best Buy is also going to start NordicTrack treadmills and Hydrow rowing machines online (with the same rollout plan to bring them into 100 stores later in 2019). Just in case you want to start making your Black Friday shopping plans early…
