The NordicTrack S22i studio cycle is one of the most popular and highly rated indoor cycling bike options you can buy, but is it worth the money? At right around the $2,000 price point there are several other popular choices such as the Keiser M3i and the standard Peloton bike. The former does not require a monthly fee, while the latter is facing supply chain problems which could prevent you from getting a Peloton for months to come.
One key difference about the NordicTrack S22i studio cycle is you can order it on Amazon and it'll be delivered to your home within a week, so you can get back into your regular cycling routine regardless of whether your gym is closed down or if it's too cold to ride a bike outdoors. Speaking of outdoor riding, the iFit platform on the NordicTrack S22i bike puts it's best foot forward to simulate real outdoor riding. The incline and decline feature on the bike simulates riding up and down hills in the instructor led iFit classes on this commercial studio cycle. While the NordicTrack S22i is the flagship model with the 22 inch touch screen, you can always take a look at the less expensive NordicTrack S15i as well as the NordicTrack S10i. They are basically the same indoor bike with a smaller screen corresponding to the number in the model nomenclature.
