Save up to $250 on the Peloton-alternative Myx exercise bike – CNET


Myx Fitness

There’s no question that Peloton offers a compelling at-home exercise experience with its robust bike and live classes broadcast on the large display. But prices starting at $1,895 (plus $40 per month) is a lot to ask. Newcomer Myx Fitness has an alternative: A bike with a massive 21.5-inch display that makes the whole thing feel like an homage, if not a carbon copy, of Peloton, but priced at just $1,299. And through Friday, March 19, you can shave up to $250 off the cost. That’ll net you a Myx for as little as $1,049. I say “as little as” because you need to spin a wheel when you arrive on the site. You can save $50, $100, $175, $250 — where she stops, nobody knows. 

The Myx is a full-featured exercise machine, complete with reversible pedals (you get toe-cages on one side, shoe-clips on the other), adjustable seat and handlebars, and 21.5-inch touchscreen that you can tilt and rotate, so you can use it off-bike as well.

The biggest difference between Myx and Peloton aside from price (not only is the bike half the cost of a Peloton, but the monthly class subscription is $29 rather than $40) is that classes are broadcast on-demand rather than live. In CNET’s recent roundup of the best Peloton alternatives, Rick Broida actually preferred the on-demand style of classes to a live session, but your mileage may vary.
