Amazon removes the $500 Prime Bike, says it has nothing to do with the Peloton knock-off

This comes the day after Echelon Fitness announced the product, touting the partnership that resulted in “[Amazon’s] first-ever connected fitness product.” The $500 bike certainly looked the part as a Peloton knock-off. Despite weighing 45 lbs less than Peloton’s original, Echelon’s Prime Bike had the same color scheme, design and features, minus a large video monitor.
