Looking around at where other riders keep their Peloton to get ideas for my home setup, i'm starting to realize some get way too close to other non-exercise related areas. One is this setup next to someones dining table. At this point it seems forced and not worth having in the first place, sort of weird to me. What are you guys doing or would recommend?

I'm hoping that since its on wheels that I can move it in and out of storage when I want to use it. Do we know if its in any way collapsible to make it smaller when not in use?

This is one of the main reasons why I've been looking into other foldable exercise bikes. The Peloton takes up a bit more space than I would like.

Its no larger than any of your run of the mill spin cycles and you aren't going to get the same level of tech and resistance from anything collapsible. Some of the best folding options can be found here, but not all that impressed with their quality.

I suppose it might be better to place it out in the open where you are forced to look at it and use it. Taking an out of sight out of mind approach is probably the main reason why so many exercise machines start to collect dust.

Its probably safe to say that people living in the average condo build today, will be dealing with some squeeze because 9 foot ceilings are terrible for doing anything side from most things people should use them for, which is limited.

Peloton spent a lot of time getting this bike to look the way that it does for that reason I think. Older machines are quite unappealing to look at and thats often why they are hidden away in a corner. Still dont think this should be a focal point for a room, but its an improvment.

Is it possible that Peloton will get more aggressive with their studio strategy?
Pop-up style shops are popular and Peloton could really benefit from that model.

Found a picture of what i'll most likely be dealing with. Work from home while on the Peloton and watching my young one at the same time. Having kids is really a big barrier to hitting the gym.

I was watching a youtubers review of the Peloton the other day and a similar setup came about. For parents trying to keep fit its a clear win. Which makes me wonder about the demographics. How many buying these to use at home are parents?

Like many other bikes out there the Peloton has wheels so easily moving it around is possible.
LOVE those wheels.
Its precisely why i'm going to copy what this one person did and keep it in my study room for those early morning workouts.

Well, Peloton couldn't do it any other way. An at-home system has to be versatile... at least for those of us without a full time dedicated space for the cycle. Where are you keeping your Peloton (or will be)?

Agree.

Now if we could have something foldable and compact that would be game changer.
I assumed Peloton factored in that more people are living alone these days, thus have the space. If you can afford the Peloton, chance are you can afford a place with space. For those it is, hit up the Peloton studio... or the gym.

IMO, any way to save on space is a bonus. Why hog up another room if you don't have to?
Now it seems the Peloton bike idea is being picked up by other major players in the fitness space. As it grows, so will our options in very local and convenient ways. Equinox is one of them. Closest one is a 10 minute drive from me.
