UPDATE 2022: It is finally happening! Peloton will announce that it is launching its rowing machine at Homecoming this weekend!! After the delays caused by the pandemic, they’ve finally done it. Hooray!! But we’ll have to wait until August! Booo!!!
Here is a screen shot from their teaser video
Details are Scarce: Like the Bike and the Tread, the Peloton Rower will have the same type of touchscreen and will offer classes taught by instructors both in the studio and on the water. No further details about the rower or its interoperability with the Peloton App have been released. But this is for sure – unlike when the Peloton bike first came on the scene, this time Peloton will face some competition with other connected rowing machines already on the market. And of course, there is Apple Fitness+ and its rowing classes.
The release of the Peloton Rower is not a shock because as I reported 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 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 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.

My Peloton Bike Hack! How I saved $2,400 by using the Peloton App with a less expensive bike! Learn how…
Hi there! I get a lot of emails 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:
Since publishing my original post about using the Peloton App without the Peloton bike, I frequently get asked where to place the Wahoo Speed Sensor on my Sunny spin bike. And how to set the proper circumference.
This is how to do it…
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.
