Peloton Australia Bike Experience

Hi

I’m looking to buy this bike. Wondering if anyone has? What’s your experience been.

Also please don’t take this as an invitation to tell me why I’m an idiot. This is a carefully considered decision - I’m most interested to hear from actual owners

Thanks

    I use this while drinking juice made from my juicero.

    Clearly not enough.

      because i have neither pre-existing road bikes or trainers or easy space for two set ups - there are two adults who will use this. But sure you know more about my decision process … tell me more…

    Have you considered a bike and a trainer?

    I don't have the bike, but I did sign up to the 3 months free app just to look at the workouts and see if I like them. I tried a few and have to say I can get similar workouts from Youtube and can't justify spending a monthly subscription for them.

    In terms of the bike, we do have family friends who bought it in America, I haven't asked them specifically how it is but looking at some of the videos they posted, it does seem to be a pretty cool and high tech equipment. Personally I'm happy with my Zwift and smart trainer setup for a much lower cost.

    You're not an idiot.

    I was considering Peloton but ended up with Concept2 BikeErg (to use with Zwift).

    Peloton have a 30 day home trial.

    If you already have a (spare) bike, maybe get one of these smart trainers (or similar) https://www.99bikes.com.au/wahoo-kickr-snap-smart-v2-smart-t...

    Connect with Zwift, to see if you like it. before expending $2,000+

    The trainers can be found on gumtree/marketplace as people buy them, and then don't end up using it for whatever reasons.

      Unfortunately starting with zilch. Also cycling is going to be a major part of rehab post injury but need to start indoors - hence haven't rushed out to find a road bike … yet

        The advantage of TheMindsetTraveller's advice is, that once your rehab has been going for a while, you can shift things up by some road/bike path riding. Indoor riding can become tedious after awhile.

        Are there any others in the household who might use the Peloton?
