My Peloton Bike Hack! How I saved $2,400 by using the Peloton App with a less expensive bike! Learn how…
Are you considering getting your significant other a Peloton exercise bike for Valentine’s Day? What a great idea! While prices are down for first-generation Pelotons, there are still other options to consider.
And if you are reading my blog, you are probably looking for a cheaper alternative to the Peloton. I get it – you may not be able to afford to buy a Peloton bike and/or want to pay its $39 monthly fee. I didn’t want to, that is for sure. 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 your own bike. Brilliant. There are a bunch of other bikes out there that can be paired with the Peloton App. I tried a bunch before I bought my Sunny and here is what I found.
When taking a Peloton class, knowing your cadence number is a must. While riding, Peloton instructors shout out how fast you should be pedaling – this is what is known as your “cadence.” The actual Peloton bike and other bikes like the Keiser M3i display your cadence. For everyone out there using the Peloton App with a budget friendly bike (like me), you need to get a cadence sensor. But with so many on the market, its difficult to know what to buy.
