    I think I’ve asked before but I’m an idiot and can’t figure out the best bet in terms of a heart rate monitor.

    Seems like I’ve read conflicting reports on which ones work/connect to your peloton, or if that’s even needed?

    Id prefer to do something on my wrist (Fitbit, Garmin, etc)

    Peloton website will tell you what works with it. For just working with peloton you could pretty much use anyone that’s compatible. Think most are other arm or chest though.

    Got an email on Wednesday from Peloton that due to “unforeseen circumstances” mine wouldn’t be delivered on Thursday and they would let me know the new delivery date within 72-hours. They emailed me during my delivery time on Thursday saying they will refund $100 and it will now come the 23rd.

    I am not happy.

    speakers or bike? It’s a really well made quality piece of equipment. I’ve ridden with my wife asleep and it makes basically no noise. As far as the speaker I usually wear headphones but I don’t think the old one is too loud. The new bike has a upgraded speaker and is supposedly considerably louder.

    So, Bike+ was delivered broken. Keep getting Output errors, and the bike fails Calibration. Output is either 2500 or 0. Support was generally helpful, sent me a new screen and still getting errors. Got approved for a Technician to come out and the first available appointment is... November 9th.

    Oh well, I'll be #1 in every class I take and my stats will be shot to shit, but at least I'm ridin.

    It just about killed me, but I hit a new PR on a 45-minute ride today: 729 kj. First one of those on a 45-minute ride in a long time.

    TWSS. This particular ride had quite a few climbs, which is why the numbers netted out that way. But I was also doing sprints at 55-65 resistance with 90-100+ RPM.

    Boy, has this escalated quickly. Pedals straight locked up during the middle of a ride yesterday, which was... fun. Pretty sure I'll need to take a bit of time due to a twisted knee, yes I know that probably means my form was shit.

    Sent a rather strongly worded letter to my Support rep about wasting an entire month, blah blah, which apparently got their attention. Doing a full frame swap this Thursday now, so here we go. Starting Friday, y'all can find me at the bottom of the leaderboards LET'S GOOOOO.

    One very nuanced thing that I'm wondering if there is a way to change.

    The Personal Record tracker on the leaderboard just shows your straight line results across the even amount of time - is there a way to edit this to track where you ACTUALLY were at that point of your PR ride? For example, using round numbers, if your PR is 100 for a 10 minute ride, your PR tracker will show 10 after the first min, 20 after the second min, etc. In reality, you probably were at 12 or 13 after the first minute, 23 or 24 after the second minute, etc. then tailed off later in the ride (at least I do). When I'm tracking for my 30 min PR, I'm usually up a good 9-11 over my PR halfway through, then lose ground in the second half of my ride and its frustrating. I'd like to just compare the actual numbers.

    The new bike came in today and it's beautiful. I'm pretty impressed with the updates over the original. About to hop on for my first ride and will report back.

    Have a NordicTrack Commercial S22i arriving tomorrow.

    Are we all rivals and hate each other or are we still bros? Does anyone else in here ride anything other than Peloton?

    Yeah, the Peloton Bike is cheaper than the S22i so your comment doesn’t make any sense.

    Correct. It just divides the output by the total number of minutes in the ride.

    It really sucks when you’re gunning for a PR and the instructor shuts the class down for a cooldown with a minute or two left, but you have to keep going hard to hold serve.

    I just read a lot of reviews and comparisons online and it seemed like the best fit. Most of the new additions to the Bike+ (rotating screen, automatic resistance adjustment during instructor led classes) are things that the S22i had that the OG Bike did not.

    Decision came down to just the Bike+ or the S22i and didn’t really feel like I could go wrong. The main advantage that Peloton Bike+ had was larger class selection and variety and the community, but NordicTrack still has way more than I’ll ever need. The NordicTrack has automatic incline/decline adjustments too which was a plus. We have a friend who actually just sold their Peloton to buy the S22i so that definitely played a small factor as well in breaking the tie, but they still had great things to say about their Peloton.

    But I know Pelotons kick ass, I really wasn’t coming in here to try to make a case for something else, I was just curious if it was Peloton only riders in here or if it was a wider community at all. I’ve already learned some good tips and such from just following this thread the last couple weeks (I’ve always been an outdoor only rider so this will be totally different I know). If no one else uses anything else I’ll probably just read the thread and maybe ask questions here and there.

    All jokes aside it’s a cool thread to discuss cycling (indoor and out) and overall fitness. Most itt have pelotons but some have “bootleg pelotons” or better said regular stationary bikes and use the app. We also have a couple users (like you) who have different high end bikes. It’s titled the “peloton thread” because that is what was out when we started it. I forget which other high end bike works with peloton app. Does Nordic give you other classes with your subscription or is it just cycling classes? The great thing about peloton is the added content (yoga, meditation, stretching, strength and running (out and indoor).

    Initial impressions:
    - It looks amazing. The frame is basically identical, but the new styling updates really add a lot. As my wife said, "I have to say, they really do make a sexy bike".
    - The screen. Damn. It's not a huge difference in measurement, but it is a big difference in experience (TWSS?). If you've seen the Tread in person you know that the screen on that is over the top. The screen on the Bike+ feels closer to that. Awesome.
    - The movement on the screen is the marketing point. 180 degrees each direction for 360 total. It also tilts up like the last one and down a little bit for floor classes.
    - The sound is significantly improved. I'll likely still use AirPods most of the time, but a nice add nonetheless.
    - The flywheel on this bike feels smoother. It's likely just my particular bike, but I noticed a difference. I also noticed my outputs were a bit higher. Most people have said their outputs have gone down with the +, but I suspected I had a "harder" bike, who knows.
    - I haven't used Auto-follow much, but I will once they add functionality so that you can pedal outside the range and then be auto-adjusted to an equivalent new resistance. That should be an easy software fix.
    - The handlebars are one of my favorite new features. Gone is that weird hump in the middle. These are more useful in all the different positions.

    If I have one gripe it's that they didn't add a fore/aft adjustment to the handlebars. I assume they couldn't due to the internal cable routing. No big deal. 100% happy with the upgrade.

    I will do ride 1400 tomorrow or Friday. Either with BAE or Olivia. I am hoping to hit 1500 by the end of the year. stringmusic24 i told myself I don’t need the upgrade but your review makes me want it.

    Good deal. I'm primarily a mountain biker and using the Peloton as a training aid, although I must say I've been addicted to this spin bike recently. Question about the incline: On a stationary bike does that make any difference in terms of difficulty? It seems to me it wouldn't, but maybe I'm wrong.

    That happened to me also. There was a Covid outbreak in their Dallas warehouse and shut it down for two weeks. Probably happened in whatever warehouse yours is being delivered from.

    I just took a new job which I will be traveling and staying at a relative before deciding if we want to make the move a little bit further north. The wife gave the green light to get the new bike and then have the old one here for her to use.

    On vacation this week and today is our last day. Doing tennis drills for the third and final time of the trip and just twisted my ankle horribly. Basically have a tennis ball on my ankle.

    Will probably do a bunch or recovery rides. Nice to have the peloton under these circumstances.

    That just seems insane to me. Also took it this afternoon and PRed at 347, about died. Music was of course dynamite, also glad to get a crown comment within the first 15 seconds with all the facial expressions throughout the ride. You do you Robin.

    I will be doing that ride today, but closer to a 170-180 avg output. None of this 284 nonsense.

    If you aren't familiar with Hamilton, you won't be nearly as jazzed as the folks who know it. I'd recommend watching it on Disney + if you have it and then riding it.

    Yes. But if you’ve never heard the soundtrack or watched the show, I honestly don’t know how much you’d get out of it. I am unabashedly a huge Ham fan, and my love for the show and connecting to the songs definitely helped me during the ride.

    There's some serious emo erasure on the Peloton app. They just call them "2000s Rides" instead of Emo Rides, but there's some pretty great ones with Kendall.

    Emma has the best music overall but Kendall's metal / emo type rides are pretty good for their specific genre. Emma seems to do stuff like throw "My Sherona" in there just to throw you off
