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-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.

It includes an in-depth analysis of the following features:

  • Brand
  • Model
  • Flywheel weight
  • Belt or Chain
  • Resistance Type
  • Measure Resistance Range
  • Cadence Monitor
  • Tablet Holder
  • LCD Display
  • Heart Rate Monitor
  • Bluetooth
  • Requires Electricity
  • Pedal Type
  • Power Output
  • Cupholder
  • Weight holder
  • Weights

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.

Happy spinning!

Can you tell me how the resistance levels on the Stryde bike compare to the resistance levels on the Peleton App? They are both leveled 1-100, but they don’t seem like 1 to 1 comparisons when on the bike.

Wondering what prompted you to upgrade your ride? I know you originally said the Peloton was too pricey and having over 500 rides on your Sunny, you must have been content. Mainly want to know what your motivation for the change. Was there a reason that you went from the lower cost alternative that you had, to the more expensive option? Mainly asking out of curiosity, I bought the Sunny alternative as I too was concerned my commitment would waver, my husband thinks I will ultimately want the more expensive option, I’m not sure at this point, my thinking is… Read more »

Hi! This blog is amazing. Thanks so much. I want to set up the app on a tv using Amazon fire stick. I have an android phone. I will get the wahoo cadence and speed sensor. Do you know if using the fire stick app I will be able to see my cadence and resistance on the screen? Thank you!!
