    this the biggest issue. If they’d have released a statement people could have made an informed decision. I’ve had my bike for close to 3 years I have absolutely loved it and a $700 credit towards the upgrade is cool. But if I had just gotten it I’d be pissed.

    i think a 90 day period would be more appropriate but you’d still get people bitching about that albeit id assume less considering how many they have sold recently

    Got my bike on August 19th. Upon first glance, if I wanted to trade it in for the Bike+ they would require me to return it under the 30 day trial program, and then place a new order for a Bike+. That's.... really lame

    How is that lame? You’ll get to use your current bike likely for a couple months as pickups are delayed, trade it in for full price, and then have an upgraded bike delivered to your doorstep. Or you could take the almost $400 credit they’re giving out which they’re not in any way obligated to provide. I’m failing to see the problem here. That sounds like a sweet deal to me and excellent customer service. I’d be bummed if I had received delivery two months ago, but not in your situation. You hit it perfectly.

    By the way, there have been rumors swirling for months that a new bike was coming this year. I drug my feet on my purchase for this very reason. It’s just the nature of product life cycles and tech more specifically.

    isn't there already a third-party attachment that swivels the og bike's screen? what are the other selling points?

    Screen is two inches bigger
    Screen rotates
    Forward facing speakers with “sub-woofer”
    Apple watch and GymKit integration
    Auto-follow instructor resistance
    Minor styling updates

    While I've been told two inches doesn't make a difference, those changes aren't quite enough for me to switch to a newer one

    Under the 30 day trial, they pick up the bike ASAP. Who knows how long delivery for Bike+ will take. In addition, my firm pays for monthly gym memberships, including Peloton, so a ~$400 variation in the cost of the bike is fortunately not all that important to me when that cost is spread over 3 years.

    And you drug your feet yet didn’t wait the entire time, why? Because it didn’t make sense to wait? Hmm...
     
  10. stringmusic24

    stringmusic24 Iconoclast, Aspiring Misanthrope

    Uh, Peloton paused pickups so ASAP right now is weeks or more. Delivery for the Bike+ is 4-6 weeks as of this morning.

    Again, I’m not really sure what you’re complaining about. Trade it in or don’t. Either way they’re doing everything they can to help out people in your exact situation. You should be thrilled.

    I ordered my bike such that it would be delivered after this weeks earning call which is when I predicted they would release details on the new bike. Had they not released details I was going to delay my delivery.

    I'm complaining about the fact that if I were to use Peloton's Trade-In policy, they would pick up the old bike and deliver the new bike in the same transaction. On the other hand, because I fall into a different category, it appears I have to return my bike at an indeterminate date under their 30-day trial policy while also ordering a whole new bike on new terms. That's two separate transactions. Again, I said it was "lame" but not a deal breaker. Had I known a new bike was coming, I simply would have held off on purchasing.

    And I'm happy for you that you spent all this time researching and timing your purchase. I went online and ordered a bike that my wife wanted and I had anecdotally heard was worth it. I didn't bother looking into Peloton product release rumors because I have better things to do with my time.

    Do you always buy $2,500 purchases on a whim?

    And I'm trying to tell you that your current bike almost certainly won't be picked up before your new bike comes in. This is a sweet deal for you, that's all I'm saying.

    BTW, I know so much about this because I've been buying PTON stock since March, so maybe not a huge waste of time after all.

    I think it’s a legitimate grip that peloton didn’t announce this a few months before the release. People thinking of buying the bike could have made a more informed decision.

    No, it isn’t. There have been whispers this was coming forever. There’s always going to be a cutoff point. The new features aren’t even worth the discussion anyway.

    Oranjello find out if they are waving the restocking fee or whatever they call it. If they aren’t it might be more expensive for you.

    I’m not talking about cutoff of ownership date I am talking about “hey in 3 months we are releasing a new bike” people could have said well I’ll wait. Apple, gaming systems, Samsung etc all do it. Peloton could have done it. My bike is in perfect shape. I don’t have the room to do floor exercises where I have the bike so I have to do them in a different area so the swivel screen would be pointless to me. I wear headphones so the new speaker is pointless to me. I have no dog in the fight I am just saying I understand why people like Mix are upset.

    how much experience do you have with cycling? Indoor and out. If not a lot start with low impact or beginner classes. If a lot try some 30 min theme rides. Robin, Alex, Olivia and Kendall are probably your hardest instructors.

    I approved your request and followed you back. Mix still won’t share his name.

    Peloton Beats Estimates - Connected Subscriptions Double

    Peloton shares jumped after hours Thursday after the connected-fitness company reported fiscal-fourth-quarter results that topped analyst estimates. For the quarter ended June 20 Peloton earned 27 cents a share, compared with a loss of $2.07 a share in the year-earlier quarter. Peloton doubled its connected-fitness-subscription base from a year earlier to more than 1.09 million while paid digital subscriptions tripled to more than 316,800.

    Yes hi hello, my wife finally got the fake bike that she's dreamed of for so long because I am an amazing husband who is also interested in traveling nowhere.

    That being said, any recs on must have accessories? We have a decent gym setup so don't need mats, etc. What do you wish you had or had known before you put your old wrestling singlet on for the first time?

    I look forward to participating in this very long thread until I go back to the one about running.

    Emma for life. Honestly very few not good ones. Find ones who use music you enjoy and do beginner ones from them.

    I had zero experience cycling and I’m just about to finish the beginner program they have on there. It’s six weeks of various classes and instructors. Thought it was good to get acquainted with the bike and gives you some structure.

    First attempt at getting peloton to give me a refund even though I moved up my delivery two weeks to not be technically eligible based on their criteria was unsuccessful. Chat support basically told me to fuck off.

    my problem is i was originally scheduled for a delivery of 8/15 but i called and had them move it up to 7/31 so i’d have the bike earlier. now they’re saying tough shit bc it’s based on your delivery date but i didn’t know they were going to announce this so i say thats bullshit. going to have to call them i guess and hope i get someone who isn’t an asshole

    None of this is galaxy brain stuff, but:

    -Good cycling shoes are an absolute must
    -Good wireless headphones
    -3 lb. weights
    -Cup holder is pretty small so I got a smaller Swell bottle

    These 32 oz Gatorade squeeze bottles fit perfectly. I usually go through 2 of them on a 45 minute ride.
