My Peloton Bike Hack! How I saved $2,400 by using the Peloton App with a less expensive bike! Learn how…
As I expected, Peloton recently confirmed that it will soon launch a Peloton Rowing Machine although no further details about the rower or its interoperability with the Peloton App were provided. The Covid-19 pandemic will likely delay things. And I sure I they will be taking pause after the recent Pelton treadmill tragedy.
It is not a shock because just before the pandemic Peloton acquired Tonic Fitness Technology, a company that has been manufacturing Peloton’s high tech spin bikes for a bunch of years. And Tonic recently filed a patent application for a a high tech indoor rowing machine with the U.S. Patent Office.
Piecing in all together…
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.

Hi there! I get a lot of email asking me how I display the Peloton App classes to my TV. There are several ways and each has its pros & cons. I’ll share what I know and what I do:
Its been almost two years since I started using the Peloton App with my own Sunny Spin Bike and my Wahoo cadence and speed sensors. What an amazing experience. I am in the best shape of my life and more importantly I have proven to myself that I have a passion for spinning – I am so happy with the variety of Peloton class options, have exercised my butt off and the bike didn’t turn into a clothes hanger.
Now I am considering an upgrade. Why? For no reason in particular. My Sunny still works great. I just want to move to more of a commercial grade exercise bike. I have stashed away $100 per month for the past two years and I am deciding between a Keiser M3i and of course, the Peloton.
After doing a LOT of research comparing and contrasting the two spin bikes – I thought I would share what I found.
Peloton has made some awesome updates to its app and I want to share the news. There are new ways to display metrics, shout outs for at home riders, the ability to see and high five other rides and currently a 2 week free trial. Bottom line, the updates are fantastic!
If you read my earlier blog post about using the Peloton app with a less expensive Sunny bike, then you already know that I use a Wahoo cadence sensor and a Wahoo heart rate monitor to get my cadence and heart rate metrics. You can use the same sensor and monitor to view your metrics right on the app. Very cool.
