Thoughts on peloton

Hello MFP community!

I’m in the market for an at home spin bike and subscription and have been seriously considering a peloton. I’ve also looked into proform and I’m leaning towards peloton.

If you have some honest opinions about either brand or even a different brand, it would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers!

    I'm an outdoor cyclist, road and mountain, but I've always enjoyed indoor spin classes. I can't see myself spending Peloton money on an indoor bike. I would put that towards a new road or mtb, but that's just me. I have the Echelon Sport from Walmart and I use the Peloton app. It's a great workout. I'm a fan of their strength classes too. There are a few groups on Facebook that discuss the pros and cons and bike reviews of non Peloton bikes.

    I am relatively new to spinning (doing a ride right after I post this). I purchased the Schwinn IC4. I am currently using it with Apple Fitness which sync with my watch and phone and I stream the workout on my flat screen TV. Apple fitness is $80 per year I think. The IC4 is supposed to be compatible with the Peleton AP as well. There are facebook groups that address this whole concept.

    It’s amazing!! The Peloton is the Best purchase I’ve ever made!! It’s totally addicting. Download the app and see everything that you get along with the cycling classes. I think there’s a free trial? It’s overwhelming and it’s awesome! We just ordered the treadmill we like Peloton so much.

    I’m a cyclist - gravel/mtb/some road and would not use that money on a stationary trainer, but I love riding a real bike and, training on one. $4000 for a stationary bike is exorbitant. The best way is to buy a road bike, a smart trainer or smart trainer compatible and subscribe to Zwift or Trainer Road and you’ll still be at less than Peloton AND be able to ride outside also :) #ridebikes

    Hey! How often do you ride? What’s your favourite bike? I just bought a gravel bike! Can’t wait for it to arrive
