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…

1 – Place the Wahoo Speed Sensor on your spin bike

It was simple.  First, I placed the Wahoo Speed Sensor on the outside of the front wheel so that it would get the most rotation. It was an easy setup. I used a video I found on YouTube as guidance – “Garmin Speed Sensor Review + Spin Bike/Trainer/Indoor Setup”.

Here the link to the video guidance:

The photo below shows how the Wahoo Speed Sensor looks after it was installed on my spin bike.

2 – Setting the Right Circumference

Second, for circumference,  I used the Wahoo Tire Size conversion Chart and set it to 1.34 within the Wahoo App. (download the Wahoo Tire Size Chart PDF)

You can use the Wahoo sensors along with the Peloton App with almost any spin bike.

I hope that this helps!

Happy Spinning!
