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.
Read on to access the spreadsheet.
It includes an in-depth analysis of the following features:
- Flywheel weight
- Belt or Chain
- Resistance Type
- Measure Resistance Range
- Cadence Monitor
- Tablet Holder
- LCD Display
- Heart Rate Monitor
- Requires Electricity
- Pedal Type
- Power Output
- Weight holder
So if you are interested in using your own bike with the Peloton App, I hope that you find this information and review as helpful as I did! Of course, if you choose a bike that doesn’t have an onboard computer like my Sunny, you will want to pick up a Wahoo cadence sensor and a mat for under the bike.
UPDATE: I’ve had a few questions and thought I would clarify…you can use ANY bike with the Peloton App, not just the 40 or so on the spreadsheet!
