Hey everyone. In the coming months I will be cancelling my gym membership and during this time looking for equipment to add at home. I have used spin bikes at my local gym but of course nothing like the Peloton and the "digital studio" that comes with. The Peloton (or similar bike) will likely become part of my core workout routine so I will be using this community to assist in my research and share my findings to help other newbs like myself.

Awesome! Please share your research ftrider! I've also been debating getting a Peloton but I have a trainer for my road bike and I'm not sure if I should just keep with that and then do an online class. I'm interested in hearing your thoughts.

Am I correct that the digital app without the bike is less than the subscription cost for the app when it is connected to a Peloton bike? Seems strange that their bike would make it more expensive, but maybe it is worth it! :unsure:

The app has been set at $12.99 a month while the video access subscription that comes with the bike has been set at $39? With the purchase of a bike you do get access to the app for a 14 day trial so that could be a good way to determine the differences between the two.

No I'm not set on Peloton, but I haven't heard anything about Studio or Zwift. Are they good?
It largely depends on what you need.

Zwift for example is favored by a few competitive friends of mine that always race together, competitively.
Every platform has something different to offer.

Zwift looks fun for those who prefer unstructured rides, but it might be difficult to stick to a plan on it. I think it would be more useful as a recovery session or when want to take a break from the competitive stuff. Imo it doesn't look ideal for training.
