Agreed.  I have a playlist on my ipod that is just from songs heard on Peleton.

I do not have any exercise stuff because I`m way to lazy, but the thought crossed my mind once.Since spending (for me at least) over 2k on a bike that doesn`t even have tires seems slightly insane I found this alternative for the not so free spenders.

Can’t think of it like that, we looked at it like a gym membership for a family. Plus you can get a workout anytime

People have to do what is right for them.  For me, this was the best money I ever spent.  I'll spend more for the convenience of getting everything together as opposed to peace mealing things together.  Also, without the bike, you miss out on the platform and metrics which is what separates it from other pieces of equipment.  Seeing your metrics on the screen, and having them compared to other riders or to your own personal history is incredibly motivating.

I got mine a few weeks ago.  I love it. Iíve used it almost every day since. Easy to stay motivated and i get that high riding the bike that i could never get running. Did my first 45 minute ride last night.... it wears you out, for sure.

The app is looking intriguing to me - have a bike and a trainer I can attach it to already.  Just need a bracket for my phone.

The convenience of the actual Peleton bike is really tempting and I know the reviews they allow on their site are extremely positive, but a little research shows a ton of issues with delivery/install/and customer service for the actual bike from folks that don't get to post reviews on their site. Hard to reconcile so giving me pause.

May try the app and go from there!

What are the complaints?  I'm sure delivery and install varies depending on who happens to bring your bike but I had 2 guys that were awesome.  One even left me his cell number in case I had any questions after he left.  I haven't had much need for customer service aside from my HR monitor strap coming apart and they sent me a new one immediately.

Glad you had a good experience.
