I am considering getting the Peloton bike and wanted to know if anyone here owns one and what their experience has been like... good, bad or indifferent...

Thanks in advance...

I personally haven't tried it, but I have a few friends that have and they seem to be using it all the time.

Zwift is definitely cheaper at $15/mo. (a compatible trainer to attach to your bike can run about $1000 or so) by comparison (you'll also need an iPad or computer nearby):

- Zwift is more like a video game you control with your bike
- There is a lot of hardware flexibility - you can, for example, connect zwift to a large tv, or change the bike, trainer, tv, ipad/computer independent of one another

Peloton is more of an all-in-one solution - to make you feel like your interacting with a live class and real people. You're kind of locked in to the technology -i.e. if they upgrade the bike, are you going to spend another 2 grand on a new one?

Additionally if you are anyway a rider you’ll probably have a bike.
