    I love my Peleton, when I use it!!! But I am so over paying a monthly fee for something I paid so much for to start with. So until I get motivated I am just tossing money away…. Anyone want to buy a bike bahaha?

    • lydia999

      I am obsessed with my Peloton. You can sell yours for about what you paid for it. The demand is really high for them!

    • sandy-4

      I know someone who wants one if you are in ct or mass

  2. Tammie

    Love my Peloton! So worth the added expense if you can fit it in the budget!

  3. ashleybg01111

    Nice post with great Info but the Peloton is really an awesome bike and membership. It’s more cost effective than going to a gym and the classes are top notch. I’ll share my referral code if anyone wants it. You get $100 in accessories. I get $100 in apparel. Code: 7NMSFA I can answer questions if anyone is interested!

    All for the alternatives. Pelaton is part of the anti-consumer friendly group of companies that needs a reoccuring slice of your income or doesn’t want to you to repair the device. It’s being pushed into all aspects of our life (cell phones, automobiles, farm equipment), that in order to use them, you must pay a monthly fee to use or buy new when something goes wrong.

    A few people got hurt, and Peloton had a reason/excuse to force the monthly subscription, just to activate your machine.

    support Right to Repair. There is no way to get away from these companies (Apple, cough cough), but preventing you from repairing your device on your own terms should be a big no-no. Apple prevents other companies from selling the parts needed to repair your phone/ipad/laptop to anyone but them, allowing them to say something isn’t fixable because they don’t fix it, when in reality it is, but the part has to be salvaged because it cant be sold to a repair shop)

    I have a Sunny bike and love it- I use the Peloton app and all the classes are great! Just pay $13.99 a month for unlimited classes! I lucked out and got my Sunny at Play it Again sports but it was brand new, so you may want to check resale or Marketplace!

  6. Sheila

    For those who didn’t care for the peloton like myself…couldn’t get past the sitting down and exercising thing… consider the bow flex max trainer. We love it so much. Going on three years now and it gets use daily between the family and no membership fee

    • H Jewell

      We have a bow flex and are OBSESSED with it also!! Good work out in 15 minutes!

  7. Dani

    I found a non-Peloton spin bike on Facebook Marketplace by patiently waiting for the right deal to pop up — my patience paid off as I spent $25 for a Schwinn Spin Bike!

  8. Ally

    I love my Peloton. I think what people don’t realize is that Peloton offers more than just cycling classes. They have strength, yoga, bike bootcamp, barre, cardio, and all sorts of other classes you can take off your bike. I cycle 3-4 times a week, and do strength training 3-4 a week. It sure beats going to the gym! Their resale value is very high too. If you want $100 off your bike use my promo code BEFWZ6.

  9. Joy

    I have a Schwinn IC4 and use the Peloton App for $14 a month! The app has a lot of different types of non-bike exercises too.
