Cyberbike, a “Bike It Out” for Wii, is coming this month

The Wii seems like a natural for an exercise bike, and now there is one on its way to these shores.  Cyberbike Magnetic Edition, which has been for sale in Europe since last year, is due to go on sale on June 28.  So far the only place to preorder is Toys R Us, where it lists for $200, free shipping (plus tax if applicable).

That’s comparable to many exercise bikes, and the fact that you can play Mario Kart and other games (the bike comes with a game) makes it less likely to become a clothes hanger.  Since the Cyberbike plugs into the Wii’s Gamecube ports, similar to a DDR pad, I’m curious if it can be made to work like a dance pad for Walk It Out.  If so, being able to bike all over Rhythm Island is worth a couple C-notes to me.
