Peloton Bike Review (2019) – Why it will NOT change your life

Peloton Bike Review (2019) – Why it will NOT change your life


if you are shopping for the peloton bike
and are wondering is it really the right fit for you stay tuned to this video all
right #racefam the peloton bike has been crossing my radar screen like crazy
lately so I wanted to take a deeper dive and really understand what is it about
this thing that is so appealing and really why does it appeal to a certain
segment of the population that are all for the peloton bike but would never
consider becoming a cyclist why is there such a gap between those two parties I
wanted to understand load a little bit better and the only way to understand it
is to go try it so I called my friend who has a peloton bike and asked him if
I could come out and run through a workout let’s check out my first workout
on the peloton bike anyway Brad was kind enough to let me borrow the peloton and
give it a shot so I’m gonna give it a fair shake I’m gonna get a good workout
in and then I’ll catch up with you guys and let you know what I think it is the
peloton bike live and in the flesh so it’s a pretty well-constructed bike it’s
nice and heavy it’s got a lot of features going on for it it looks really
super clean and modern it definitely is something that you would be happy to
have in your house links and you can change instructors you like the length
of class the music genre you like and then the class type so alright length
let’s go 20 minutes music let’s go hip-hop pro cyclist let’s go
beginner that would make sense 20 minute beginner ride oh maybe I’ll do a live
class oh this one’s in in session alright I’m gonna join her class so this
instructor she seems like tons of energy really prone run but she soon
all that stuff so that’s great you see this this is the angle grin I feel like
that’s a nice angle I feel like there’s other reasons for that camera hi ro
inspirational angles okay folks Connecticut Minneapolis that’s cool I
guess Iron Man’s and high-five me thanks bro my supposed to do tell me wanna do 50
plus though didn’t think about seventy Katie’s got it Rock don’t bin doesn’t like rock all
right let’s get off then Cody Cody likes hip-hop nope Cody likes electronic feel
like fishin all instructions I’m 100 mm get in it como no Shoei as
far as the workout itself I sort of struggle to get through it I struggled
to find mental focus to key in on the workout the reason is because unless
you’re verbally paying a lot of attention to what the instructor is
telling you I found myself getting lost frequently so they would say 45 and I
put the resistance on 45 and then I would daydream for a second and next
thing you know she’s standing up and I really had no idea that we were doing
that now so I got lost and then once you’re lost you have to wait till they
verbally tell you where to pick it up again you have to pay attention or
you’re gonna get lost but for me it just felt like too much work and then putzing
around with the resistance knob and I don’t know it just felt felt like I was
more focused on getting those things right and less focused on getting
performance out of my body I will just say that yeah so that’s my take on the
peloton bike now if you were going to walk into a bike shop and try to
replicate the experience of the peloton bike let me show you what that might
look like because I get from watching the videos on peloton bike reviews that
I think a lot of the people that ride the peloton or consider the peloton as a
choice in their life I don’t know if they know that bike shops exists I am
here at recyclates bike shop but you could replicate this at any bike shop
across the country so I walked in and I told Laura Laura I want to have an
experience just like peloton in my basement what do I need from the local
bike shop that could give me that same experience first thing we found is a
bicycle you can get a bicycle that’s a little bit nicer than the bottom of the
line for about $800 at a bike shop to replicate riding inside we can also get
a smart trainer that will interact with various programs for about $600 can do
clipless pedals and shoes pedals are gonna start at about 50 bucks and shoes
we’ll start at about $100 we’re just gonna use Swift in this example because
it’s the simplest way to get new people into indoor cycling in my opinion so in
order to do this whiffed you really just need a laptop which I would argue most
people probably already have but if you wanted to really have a nice experience
I think upgrading to an apple 4k is totally worth it so a flat-screen TV I
bought at a pawn shop for $36 all in everything that we can think of oh so
now we’ve seen what you can put together with a reasonable budget to replicate
the peloton experience by going to any bike shop in the country now I guess
it’s time for an overall take away on the whole experience well I think it
comes down to this can the peloton bikes be something that people will get
passionate about and that they will continue to do for years of their life I
think that answer is quite honestly absolutely not the reason is because the
peloton bike doesn’t make you passionate about your shared experience when you go
write a bike outside with friends or without friends you
experience nature and yeah you deal with cars but mostly you’re outside getting a
thrill some rush of air exercise transportation adventure getting from
point A to point B joining a group ride not joining your group ride trying
racing intent you just get a lot more experience you develop passion for a
sport and everything else take cares takes care of itself so if you want to
lose 5 pounds if you want to become a little bit faster cyclists that’s gonna
happen because you’re passionate about the sport if I want to lose 5 pounds on
the peloton I have to be pretty disciplined to hit
my basement enough times throughout the week to lose five pounds it’s not fun
yeah sorry cycling is fun a lot yeah a lot so if
you buy a bike you buy smart trainer you get an Apple TV you can have all the
same experiences of the peloton bike plus you can go outside and engage in a
social sport and develop a passion for something that will truly change your
life I know many people that have ridden a bike at a high level for 4050 years
and they don’t show any signs of slowing down I don’t know many people that are
passionate about running on a treadmill no one I know no one who is passionate
about running on a treadmill which is pretty much what the peloton bike is if
you’re looking to gain performance make friends experience new things enjoy what
life has to offer then buying a real bike is probably for you thanks for
