Are there any cheap knockoffs? And whatís the price range for them?



They have also acquired a whole stable of competitors:
- Echelon - https://echelonfit.com/
- Soul Cycle / Equinox also have a bike of their own: https://soul-cycle.com/at-home (interestingly enough, the day they announced this, there was a campaign started to boycott SoulCycle and Equinox because their CEO was hosting a trump fundraiser)
- Mirror isn't a direct competitor but in the same space: https://www.mirror.co/

There are also a bunch of companies that make trainers to be used by Zwift that are also making bikes as well:
https://wattbike.com/
https://www.wahoofitness.com/devices/smart-bike/kickr-bike
(Apparently Zwift might be making its own bike as well).



Echelon's bikes are cheaper, but also have a monthly membership of around $40/mo, and you need an iPad

If you buy from them you need a minimum subscription - if you just want the bike - likely need to buy used from someone who wants to sell their bike.

Check out ebay. Pretty good deals.  But you need to use a membership on the device. IIRC

I'm not sure what you are asking - the value in a Peloton or similar is the connected classes and workouts. Unfortunately no one gives those away for free. You can find plenty of exercise bikes under $1000 (I think Nordictrack or Sole make some in the 7-800 range).

Iíve only used peloton once,
but basically just looking for a bike that has an interactive screen and that there can be different levels of difficulty. I donít need classes or specific workouts

If you are not purchasing it for the interactive class functions, I would say you are spending money unnecessarily.  The whole point of the Peloton is the motivation that comes with doing a class with direction.  And don't buy the bike if you won't pay the monthly subscription fee.

The bike itself is not going to be changed anytime soon, they upgrade the screen every once in a while.

I got mine on used on craigslist and am very happy with it.
