    Could you please do a review of rowing machines next?

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the suggestion, Andrea! I’ll be sure to pass it along to the team! 🥰

  2. everest716

    There’s an Echelon for $297 at Walmart right now! I thought I got a great deal when I bought ours for $500 a few years ago. It’s a great bike!! For rowers, I highly recommend Concept 2.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for mentioning that option, everest716! We have a post on that bike here! Happy to hear you’re loving yours! Thanks for sharing your recommendation on a rower. 🤗💞

  3. Amy

    I have #6 and love it. I cross train with it at least twice a week and I really love iFit and all the trainers! Definitely worth it.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks so much for sharing how much you enjoy and use your bike, Amy! 🚲🙌

  4. stephanietaylor

    Could you guys put together a list of treadmills or have you in the past?

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey stephanietaylor! We have this post on treadmills, if you’d like to check it out! Hoping that might be helpful! ❤️

  5. JenK

    I use to own a peloton, Great bike. BUT! after paying what I did for the bike and then having to do the high price subscription I sold it. I now have a Sunny SF-B1877. I attached a wahoo cadence sensor (adds it right to my app screen), and bought a resistance gauge off of etsy. I use the peloton digital subscription that my insurance pays for a year at a time (check with you insurance). I then screen cast my classes to my bedroom tv. So for a grand total of $360.00 I have a bike that is like my peloton for a heck of a lot better price point. In my opinion look at your options before you purchase.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for sharing your experience with a previous bike in comparison to what you use now, JenK! Glad you’ve been able to set-up a space and features to make your current one work just as well at a lower cost! 🙌💕
