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 wrote my original Peloton App review.

As for me,  you all know that after taking 500+ rides on my very affordable Sunny SF-B1002 that I recently upgraded to a beautiful Keiser M3i.  I found this information very helpful in making my purchase decision.

Read on to access the spreadsheet.

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.

I did it!  500 rides with my trusty Sunny Bike and the Peloton App (during a global pandemic).  There were no shoutouts from the Peloton instructors, no balloons or fanfare but just a GIANT sense of accomplishment!  I am SO happy to have hit this milestone.  I am in the best shape of my life and have found a new community of friends along the way.

Now that I have hit the 500 ride milestone I have decided to upgrade my bike.  My Sunny still works great but I have decided to buy something a  bit fancier now that I have proven to myself that I am in this for the long haul.  Believe me, the Sunny was well worth my initial investment – per my math, it came out to about $0.75 per ride!   What a bargain!  Using your own bike with the Peloton App has a lot of advantages, the price  being one of them! 

Peloton App + Sunny

After a lot of debate between a Peloton and a Keiser M3i, please read on to see why I decided to buy the Keiser….

UPDATE: Peloton confirmed this week that they WILL indeed launch a Peloton rower in 2020 although no further details about the rower or its interoperability with the Peloton App were provided.  The Covid-19 pandemic is likely to delay things is my guess.

OK, this is purely speculative but I THINK Peloton will soon be releasing a Peloton Rowing Machine.

This past October 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…

Hi Gang,

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.
