Here it is – this year’s No. 1 Peloton App Accessory! Plenty of pictures and videos below.
Whether you are shopping for someone that needs a little more fun spinning at home or you are looking to spice up your spin life, this gadget is a no-brainer!
Cyber Monday is the absolute best time of year to turn your spin bike into a Peloton clone with all of the Peloton App accessories.
Normally I would have guessed that the Peloton bike would be this year’s No. 1 gift; however, Peloton is already alerting buyers of potential shipping delays. So it may just be the time to find another (and more affordable) spin bike like my old Sunny.
So if you are in the market for a spin bike to use at home with the Peloton App, some weights for strength training (which are really hard to come by during this pandemic), or a heart rate monitor, this is your chance to save big. You may even be able to score a deal on a flat-screen TV for watching the Peloton App on the big screen (like I do).
Of course, if you indoor cycling at home is not your thing, there is always a Baby Yoda…
Start Spinning at Home!
Here are some ideas for everything you need to start spinning at home with the Peloton App (which is still only $12.99/mo., by the way!).
The holidays are right around the corner and I would have predicted that the Peloton bike would be this year’s No. 1 gift for home exercise enthusiasts; however, with reported shipping delays of up to 4 months it may be time to find another (and possibly more affordable) spin bike.
Peloton is undoubtedly the leader in the spin-at-home movement and they only grew in popularity during the pandemic. But as we know, not everyone can afford to buy a Peloton bike and then pay its $39 monthly fee. (I can’t, that is for sure – its just not in the budget.) As I’ve explained over the past couple of years, that is where the genius of their Peloton App comes into play. For only $12.99 per month, you can access all of the same live and on-demand classes on their own less expensive bike. If you follow my blog posts, I’ve been preaching about how great the Peloton App is for a while now. It’s truly wonderful.
If you are thinking of giving someone an exercise bike this Christmas but can’t go all in with the Peloton or don’t want to deal with shipping delays, there are many other types of bikes out there at various price points that can be paired with the Peloton App. I tried a bunch before I bought my Sunny and here is what I found.
I recently celebrated my 500th Peloton ride on my wonderful (and budget friendly) Sunny Bike. Along the way, my Sunny was used and abused, therefore I made sure to give it some TLC.
Like any piece of machinery, a bit of upkeep is is needed. Here is what I did:
Peloton recently announced that you could now finance the purchase of a new Peloton bike. Is it a good deal? Here are my thoughts:
Buy Without Financing: As detailed in my earlier Peloton App blog purchasing a Peloton bike without financing costs about $3,000 when you add in delivery, $468 class subscription fees for the first year ($39 per month), $125 for clip-in shoes, exercise mat, etc. Way outside of my budget.
0% APR Financing: While a 0% down APR sounds like a great detail, the devil is in the details. For qualified buyers, Peloton allows you to make 39 monthly payments of $64 for the Peloton Bike+ or $49 for the Peloton Bike (the original). In addition to the cost of the bike, shoes, etc. to qualify for the 0% financing you need to commit to a 39-month class subscription of $39/mo. totaling $1,521. By my math the grand total over the 39-month period will be almost a $4,053 – $4,455 commitment when you add all the extras.
You’ve asked and I answered. With permission from Peloton App User #Libow, I’ve posted a comprehensive review of 40 different spin bikes to use with the Peloton App to help you create your own Peloton hack. This list includes everything that you need to know to help you decide which at-home spin bike is best for you and your budget. I wish I had something like this when I was deciding on my first spin bike (and the inspiration for my original Peloton App review).
As for me, you all know that after taking 500+ rides on my very affordable Sunny SF-B1509 that I recently upgraded to a beautiful Keiser M3i. I found this information very helpful in making my purchase decision.

Hey everybody! I hope that everyone is staying safe, healthy and sane.
I decided to bring a little fun into my home gym and bought a really fun disco ball for my Peloton rides. It is SO MUCH FUN! I turn down the lights, crank up the music and turn on the disco ball – the pattern of the lights change to the beat of the music coming from the Peloton App. It comes with a small remote that I keep with my bike.
I have added some pictures and videos.
Peloton recently announced that the Peloton App is now available on Apple TV and Roku TV. This is in addition to Amazon Fire TV and Android TV which I think is now all the major streaming platforms. Apple and Roku users can now view Peloton App users can now access classes directly from their TVs, all you need to do is add the Peloton channel.
