Needless to say, there are some differences between the EX-15 and the Peloton bike. The big one: Echelon's bike doesn't include a screen, meaning you'll have to supply your own phone or, preferably, tablet. In a way that's good, because if you'd rather, say, watch Netflix or run a third-party cycling app, you can; you're not locked into a single ecosystem.
If you do want the traditional classes, stat-monitoring and all that, Echelon's fitness subscription costs $40 per month or $400 per year. It includes not only bike classes, but also yoga, HIIT, scenic rides and so on.
The bike itself is fairly basic, but with a very solid build, fully adjustable seat and handlebars, toe cages for your feet and a magnetic-resistance flywheel. A few years back I tested a very similar Echelon bike and found it comfortable and sturdy.
Take note, however, that while there are some 1,400 Amazon customer ratings with a solid 4.5-star average, they aren't all for this bike: They're spread out over half a dozen Echelon models. That's a good overall endorsement of the brand, but the average for the EX-15 might be a little different. (Alas, Amazon offers no way to tell for sure.)
