I get a lot of emails asking me to respond with a simple list of all the bits and bobs needed to use the Peloton App  with your own spin bike (meaning, without the actual Peloton bike).  Well, in addition to replying to those emails, I thought that I would post my advice here, too.

Of course, my detailed review of the Peloton App with all the lovely pictures and videos can be found in my super popular Peloton Alternative post!

Here is my list

The most frequent questions I get about using the Peloton App with my Sunny Bike are about resistance.   The questions generally go something like this:

  • How do I measure resistance on my Sunny?
  • Is there anything similar to the Wahoo cadence sensor that will measure resistance?
  • How do I convert Peloton resistance when using my own bike with the Peloton App?
  • Is knowing your resistance worth the extra money to buy the Peloton bike?
  • How do I  convert Peloton resistance to my Sunny or Keiser M3i?

My answer is always the same.  Let go of not knowing. Work hard. Get sweaty. Let your fitness do the talking.

I chalk it up to FOMO (fear of missing out). But if you absolutely, positively need to know your Peloton resistance, I have some advice:

What works for me?

Very exciting news!  I got my 1st shout-out from Miss Ally Love during my 250th ride with the Peloton App.  I normally only take on-demand classes but with such a milestone, I rolled the dice, crossed my fingers and took a live class hoping to hear my screen name.

Half-way through the class, I was delighted to hear Ally exclaim, “MomJeans1973.  250th on the App.  What’s up?!”

Hi everyone,

I get a lot of email asking about the Wahoo cadence and speed sensors that I mentioned in my earlier “Peloton on a Budget” blog post so I thought I would write a post dedicated to all things Wahoo.

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.
