You’ve asked and I answered. With permission from Peloton App User #Libow, I’ve posted a pretty comprehensive review of about 40 different spin bikes to use with the Peloton App (at a fraction of the price). This list includes almost everything you will need to know to help you decide which at-home spin bike is best for you and your budget.
Read on to access the spreadsheet.
As for me, you all know that after taking 500+ rides on my very affordable Sunny SF-B1509 that I recently upgraded to my beautiful Keiser M3i. I found this information very helpful in making my purchase decision. I still couldn’t fathom buying the actual Peloton.
It includes an in-depth analysis of the following features:
- Flywheel weight
- Resistance Type
- Belt or Chain
- Measure Resistance Range
- Cadence Monitor
- Tablet Holder
- LCD Display
- Heart Rate Monitor
- Requires Electricity
- Pedal Type
- Power Output
- Weight holder
So if you are interested in using your own bike with the Peloton App, I hope that you find this information and review as helpful as I did! Of course, if you choose a bike that doesn’t have an onboard computer with Bluetooth like my Sunny, you will want to pick up a Wahoo cadence sensor and a mat for under the bike.
UPDATE: I’ve had a few questions and thought I would clarify…you can use ANY bike with the Peloton App, not just the 40 or so on the spreadsheet!
