Freebeat’s Lit Bike offers a variety of spin classes, as well as other off-the-bike workouts, that you can filter by length (15 or 30 minutes) and level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced). This one’s a great option for beginners who want to get into cycling and have room to progress.
And if you’re really up for the challenge, users can participate in competitions available on the bike’s platform to win rewards like Amazon and Spotify gift cards, as well as membership credits and more—a great incentive to push yourself. But because the membership will cost you an additional $39 per month—and it doesn’t feature any other connectivity or streaming services—our tester gave it a 3.5 out of 5 for value.
Testing Notes: “I would recommend this bike. It’s sleek and well-built, and overall we are happy with it.”
We appreciate that the bike was easy to assemble and provided a stable, comfortable ride. It also boasts unique features, like a touchscreen display that can rotate up to 180 degrees, a smart saddle that detects when you're seated or standing and adjusts accordingly, and auto-resistance, which sets the resistance based on instructor cues. But the toe-caged pedals can only be used with sneakers or athletic shoes, so additional pedals are required for clipless cycling shoes.
