DIY indoor bike for Peloton Digital
I'm not particularly motivated by leaderboards, so I cobbled together my own setup for Peloton Digital's cycling classes. I should be able to use the same setup for Apple Fitness+ when that arrives, although I'm not entirely sure I'll switch over when it's released. It is a wee bit cheaper ($10 vs $13), but having a friend on Peloton is more motivating than anything.
Already had: $1200
- Apple Watch S4: $400 from Apple in October 2018
- 12.9” iPad Pro: $800 from a friend (coincidentally the same friend who has a Peloton Bike) in December 2019
All these link to their original product pages (not Amazon).
- Sunny Health SF-B1805: $600 from Amazon
- Wahoo Cadence Sensor: $40 from Amazon
- BlueHeart Pro: $10* from the iOS App Store
* You can use it for free, but it's supported by ads. $10 seems like a decent price when the alternative is buying a whole HR monitoring device.
DIY upfront cost: $1850 Peloton Bike upfront cost: $1895
- Peloton Digital: $13/month
DIY recurring cost: $13/month Peloton Bike recurring cost: $39/month
I've now taken two classes, and I'm hoping to get some hand weights for either my birthday or Christmas to join in on that aspect which seems popular in a lot of the classes.
