The leaderboard is very motivational for me and the bike quality is very very good. It’s actually hard to get on a bike at a hotel after riding the peloton. I still use my road and mountain bike but not for a workout, more now for enjoyment. The peloton has taken over as the fitness regime… just so easy to knock off 20-30 high intensity minutes!
Excellent.

Bought 3. One for my primary house. One for my cottage. And one for my yacht. Also, the price drop will help boost up my Peloton share price for the next earnings quarter.

I suggest getting a 4th one for your jet if the budget permits. We have one on ours and its really great on those super long trans Pacific flights.

you mean space is not limited? As I imagine "budget" is no longer a concern..

Not wanting to assume anything about an individual's financial situation, I tried to read inbetween the lines. Buying one each for your primary house, cottage and yacht tells me that money may be a little tight.

But yes, the lack of size distinction on the term "yacht" means that space may also be an issue.

That’s exactly my setup, I use an iPad and it works great. The only downside about the IC4 is the water bottle holders are in an awkward position when you climb so I put mine on the table beside the bike. There’s no leaderboard but that doesn’t motivate me, I use my heart rate to see how hard I’m working. Make sure you put a note on the Peloton to IC4 resistance conversion. Buy a fan to get some air moving. I pay $12.99 + tax a month and discount it further by buying Apple Store gift cards when they go on sale at Costco $200 for $167 (this sale may not come back though if you can use them for hardware). Paid $999 for the bike. The big downside to Peloton is your locked into their ecosystem and from what I recall you can’t use Apple Fitness or Zwift with it.

i gotta say after using my nordictrack s15i now for a month, its been really great, i have done 30 workouts, 153 miles in, its been really engaging and fun, for the record i have done 29 scenic rides, and 1 spin class, i didnt like the spin class, but the scenic rides are amazing. i did a whole series in Turkey and New Zealand, the auto incline and decline is a must have after using it for 30 days.

so far i have worked out more in the last 30 days then i have in the last 20 years combined.

First step was the hardest, which was willing to part with $2k on anything on RFD.
Once the pretty bike showed up I just knew we made the right choice. Started with the beginner class and that was interesting. Got a feel of how the bike works and how to get into the different ranges that they want you in. Only mistake was thinking a n00b could do another class that was live in the same sitting. What a kick in the arse, but well worth it.

Makes the sudden prospect of winter coming not seem as bad as I'll be able to ride indoors.

I could be totally wrong but I wanted to chime in.
Close but not quite. You'll need a Peloton bike in order to show up on the board. You can follow along, but the Peloton app won't register a non-Peloton power and cadence meter. If that's not a factor, then Echelon Sport bike is a much much cheaper alternative.

Not trying to be too controversial here.
This is bang on. I am one of the ones with an Echelon (from Walmart) and use the Peloton app. Its been great and I love it.

If I knew what I know now (that I like it, and have kept with it) and were to do it over, at this price, I may splurge on the Peloton. Not having to fiddle with separate apps (echBT & Peloton) and having a larger dedicated display would be worth a bit for me.

No idea if the bike quality is better or just similar, or if the digital fees are more expensive with the bike.

One year after getting my Peloton bike, I've done almost 400 rides and 900 exercises in total. Way safer than going to the gym. Loves it. Just like my massage chair, it's expensive but worth every penny if you really use it all the time.

I honestly agree with you if you’re going to use it peloton is great, the classes in itself are amazing. Personally, I would go the bow flex or Schwann way, I ended up doing echelon which I regret.

My main issue with buying a peloton is… if they go bankrupt, then you just have a really expensive bike.


Edit: to clarify, only reason I don’t like the echelon is because I learned I’m not into spinning, I road bike during the summer and echelon customer service is absolutely crap when I had part issues.

The sole bike that Costco had for a while is also quite good for $899 when it comes back in stock. Comes with a cadence meter and good saddle and a tablet holder.
Any app and tablet / phone and you don't need to spend that kind of money on the peleton gimmick

I'm not worry about their bankruptcy. They charge $50 per month per bike, so it's not like they don't have a steady stream of revenue. Their stock price may not do well at times, but there are millions of subscribers to keep them going. Their classes are very good or at least I'm still interested in doing it after a year.

Debating if I want to spend the extra for the + or not?

Peloton did 1.86B in revenue last year. They are losing money, but I highly doubt they're going bankrupt anytime soon.

Heard so many good things, but can't justify a $50 a month monthly subscription.

You can pick up a used Echelon Sport bike for $400 on Kijiji and put your ipad on it and connect - Echelon is virtually the same.

I know a lot of people buy into the Peloton name (much like a Mercedes I guess) but I've used both and I don't think it's worth the extra $$.

I would have bought the Peloton if the screen wasn't completely locked to the peloton app. If they allowed us to use it to watch netflix etc. I would have definitely bought this bike. I ended up getting a Schwinn IC4 and pair it with an iPad which has been great as well.
