    Thinking of upgrading to the Bike+, but given the current state of the company does that seem like a wise investment?

    I could be talked into a rower but not for a year or so based on space.

    I wouldn’t trust a new machine released by a sinking company. Like all have said, I’m sure they’ll eventually get bought out, but that seems like a big risk.

    I mean, I’ll probably buy the rower too.

    Emma will always be BAE but I love Kendall. It’s refreshing to take a class with someone who you know also deals with mental health issues. She is so authentic when she speaks and opens up. Have taken other mental health classes with her and loved them. Took her “anxious” class and idk how to explain it but you could feel her struggles you could tell she wasn’t reading off of a script. Anyway if you deal with mental health issues I highly recommend taking her classes.

    I’m glad you had that experience. I took that class for the music but I figured it would be a helpful and useful class for those who need it

    thank you.

    they are helpful. It’s like a quick therapy session with someone who understands and sees you. If that makes sense. It’s cathartic in an extremely emotional the room got dusty kind of way.

    The way she set up the class simulated an anxiety attack. Not exactly but it was a good simulation.

    My warranty is expiring on my bike+. Should I extend it?

    we don’t use it nearly as much as we should, but it drives with bent wheels (they replaced) and then something within the pedals/crank was bad and they sent a repairman out.

    Not my highest output per minute but just had my highest single ride output, 45 minutes 463 output 15 miles. Never went below 63 resistance

    first month I was struggling to go up to 50 resistance

    Been a rough May. Was not feeling well with norovirus for a few weeks to startthe month. Finally got a few rides in a few weeks ago. About 10 days ago, I slid in a slow pitch softball game due to my cleat giving out and now have a strawberry all the way down my leg that hurts like a bitch. It's healing, but I have to dress it every day and don't want to get it sweaty and run the risk of infection. My May summary will look outstanding with...3ish total rides.

    so you like the lower cadence and higher resistance stuff obviously? That’s tougher for me… makes my knees hurt

    Yeah very much so, I tend to lose focus during rides (watching sports on tv) and can’t stay consistent with high speeds

    well I applaud you… I prefer to ride steady in the 50-53 range and PowerZone ride

    I can do a bit more in output than where you’re at but not by much and you’re definitely riding more weight than I can turn in the saddle … once resistance gets over 60 I have to get out of the saddle and I can only do that for a few mins before I die
