NeXfit, the makers of the bike, have combined a high-quality home fitness bike with a PC game controller, letting you control the game with the bike itself.

The model in the above image is the BK-A6, which you can buy today for $2,499.99!!

I think you can get lipo for less than that :lol: Pretty cool though. At my gym they have spinning classes where you have a projection of a road etc so it looks like you are actually riding outdoors. I haven't tried it but I think I'd rather be outdoors. Now, if only it wasn't 20 degrees out and I actually had a bike :roll:

Oh geez, they'd have to be hooked to a feeder tube and an IV. We won't mention the nether regions.:lol:
