2021 PELOTON BIKE REVIEW | WHY I’M RIDING LESS | PLUS HUGE MONEY SAVING TIP!

Jun 08, 2021
Hello, in this week's video I am going to

review

the

peloton

's bicycle after 350 training sessions and one year 220 of those training sessions are on a bicycle. I'll tell you what I like, what I don't like, what's changed in the last This year I'll also talk about why I ride

less

than before and if you're torn between the

peloton

bike

and the peloton

bike

, I'll also give you a great advice that can save you hundreds, let's get to work. As you can see, I have done 350 workouts, of which 223 are recycling, 45 are stretching, 39 are strength training, yoga, meditation and cardio, so there is a whole ecosystem with the peloton.

I'll link to my full platoon playlist at the end of this video or a link. up now, but today we're just going to talk about the bike, so the bike itself has done three, about 300 rides, I would say because I do the vast majority of the rides, but my family uses it just as well, not as well as I do. . I would say the bike is in exactly the same condition as it was 300 rides ago. I mean, I can't really see any wear. There's a little bit here, if you look, it's just peeling off some kind of paint, that's where the shoes have been put on and taken off over 300 times, but everything is very tight maintenance-wise, the only thing I had to do yesterday was tighten this, so after 300 bike trips on the many climbs, this had just happened. it came loose a little bit and that was just an allen screw and a 30 second job really so when you ride the bike it's also extremely smooth if you can hear it but that's the noise it makes compared to my voice the only thing it would make .

2021 peloton bike review why i m riding less plus huge money saving tip...

Let's just say it takes a little time to get used to the seat. It is a gel seat but it is a little firm but you will soon get used to it so with the bike you get a 12 month parts and labor warranty. and I can. I have spoken to the customer service people a couple of times and they have been very helpful. They are a very pleasant company to deal with. I know some of the

review

s are a little hit and miss with Peloton, but every time I call them. From the UK to the UK call center they have been exceptionally good, so I was listening to the Pillow Buddy podcast the other day and they were saying that they had quoted someone in the peloton to say that these bikes are designed to last seven to ten. years, so I don't know how accurate that is, I don't know if they're like Elon Musk with Teslas like enormously optimistic, but it looks really sturdy and it looks as tight as the day I bought it, you can get it. an extended warranty for these bikes that takes them up to 39 months and coincidentally that's the type of payment, so it's a 39 month payment plan and that's £185 after the first year to extend your warranty for 27 months until the end of those 39 months so I have mixed feelings about whether I will buy it or not because the warranty comes out in about a week if they are designed to last seven to ten years I don't know.

From what I know so far and my experience with this bike I don't expect to have any problems in the next 27 months and I don't normally buy extended warranties. Part of me thinks I could. I think I'm leaning towards getting the extended warranty on the bike, a peloton call out charge, I think it's at least £100-150 anyway, plus parts, so maybe it's worth doing, maybe don't be, so the next thing I want to show you are the platoon shoes, so different. Every other person in the world in our family has the same size feet, so these shoes have done 300 runs, 300 runs with high height, most of those runs have been done by me 223 and the rest by the other best in the family , as you can see.

We're just in really good condition after those rides, so we push and there's a little bit, it's kind of nice, just a little bit of shine, there's a little mark there, I think it's the heel, I mean, this part takes a lot of wear. . Getting the shoe on and off, but the shoe assembly doesn't seem to be much different, so when I get the bike, maybe a little wear on the bottom of the shoe, but they're replaceable, they're pretty cheap. to replace but everything works and they have been put on and taken off 300 times so I think they are in excellent condition as all the stuff with the pellets in the shoes is expensive you could probably get them for half the price say in Amazon, a comparative pair.
I think I'm probably going to keep this bike for 39 months, another 27 months. I really hope the shoes are the same or very similar after 27 more months of having them. I don't plan on buying another pair of shoes in that time. I'm going to own the bike sooner, maybe we'll upgrade it to a newer model, so let's look at the cost of the bikes, the bike and the bike plus, and I can tell you which package I think you should go for so you know what. you're thinking I think you think this guy over here you're thinking I've seen this guy before wait so I bet you're thinking that's me, aren't you that guy over there? he's not me, he's very handsome but he's not Anyway, let's look at the prices, let's get the bikes up, so what the peloton is saying these days is that the peloton bike, the standard bike, which is the one I have , it costs 1750 from 1750 and 45 pounds a month, remember that if you are purchasing a purchase, you will have to add your monthly subscription to which is 39 pounds a month or dollars or euros depending on where you are, so when it comes of the bike, I recommend the essential package and the reason for I mean, it's 150 pounds or 150 or euros, where you cost more than the basic package, but you get the shoes that I just talked about and a set of weights, so I don't really do much type of cycling and arm classes together but they are actually very good and you get a really good arm workout, the next pack weighs 100 pounds so the headphones I talked about before you will probably never use, so the next package is the one it works its another 100 quid you get a peloton bike map plus a heart rate monitor plus the headphones i think you could do better than both and un

less

you particularly want a branded mat from the peloton, you can get a bike mat, a good bike mat. for around £30 or $30 so the essential package is what I would go for with regards to the bike and if you go for the bike maybe I wouldn't go for the basic package I would look at the essential package. because even though it's 200 pounds heavier, the shoes get some weights and a mat, making it a little more cost-effective.

My other tips are if you can try to exercise in the morning because if you can get out of bed 20 minutes early and get on the bike, there will be no more showers during the day. Anyway, you're showering like you normally would in the morning so the bike saves a lot of time. I would also say to make sure to stretch after the walk. If you walk a lot, you'll get a little stiff and get a little fatigued, so stretching really helps.
I have a little stiffness in my hips. If I ride a lot without stretching afterwards, my other tip is that when you pick up the bike and you've done 10 rides, you can get a referral code now peloton, don't really advertise this, but when you start talking about the peloton bike with your friends, what you will do, you can give them your referral code, they will get 100 pounds to spend in the clothing store when they buy their bike. and then you'll get £100 to spend in the clothes shop too, so you can buy t-shirts, you can buy water bottles, you can buy towels, there's a lot of things in there that you wouldn't normally buy because of the peloton.
It's quite expensive to buy, but when you get them for free and only pay for shipping, then yes, it's a good deal. I think if you have a friend who has a platoon, talk to him and ask for his code first. you buy your bike if they don't have a code then I will put mine if it is available in the description and then you can use my code so I will show you the screen of the bike so this is a standard. bike, so the pelotons say this screen is 21.5 inches, which is pretty good, the peloton plus bike is 24 inches, so if you look at the screen here, if you imagine it without the border around it, that's the size Plus the screen, both are high definition, so one is not 4k, the plus is not 4k, which I think it should have been, both are high definition screens and when you ride a bike, anyway, we're pretty close to the screen so I don't think the bigger screen will really make much of a difference, especially since the quality isn't any better now that the screen plus has a faster processor and more memory, so let's take a look at this and then.
You can see what you think of the speed, uh, the plus bike will be faster than this one, so on the screen what I really like is that you have the next class ahead of you, so there is an endurance course in the power for 45 minutes after that. I have a 20 minute walk on the new wave after that, you have some yoga, another walk at one, every kind of minute, there's something that starts, so 45 minutes of yoga, hitting hills, legs and glutes, I like the fact that you can just flip through there if you want to see the classes, you can isolate them so you can just go on the bike, just to the training camp, if you want to get off the bike and do some weights along the way and then onto the floor .
I can click between strength cardio stretching and yoga etc. I have reviews on these or reviews and all of them coming soon, so I won't go into too much detail now, but as I mentioned, I will put a playlist at the end with All my videos are for peloton, so when you're

riding

, if you want to watch the ride live, you can click on the calendar and it will show you the live tours coming up so today Wednesday and these are the tours and the times. They vary throughout the week, so for example, one thing I don't quite understand is that every morning there is a trip at 7:30 where the other one is, except on Fridays and weekends, so If you want to travel, say on Monday, you can do it there at 7:30.
It's 7:30 there, but if you like to ride your bike at 7:30 a.m. You can't always get a live class if you don't want to watch the replay, so the encores mean these are repeat rides, so it's understandable that Christmas Day is all on-call rides, but you can remove them by simply flipping a switch and you get just the live trips. One thing I really like about this screen is that there are no physical buttons, it's a bit like a tesla. In that sense, they can put things wherever they want, so, for example, this sign has appeared here and it is not normally there.
Your instructors, when you do some tours, you will see that they start to recommend the instructors that you like. to travel, so alex has six new trips, Kendall has six tandys and these are the people I travel with the most. He also recommends daily picks, so these are popular trips right now and he'll also say this is how I usually travel. I usually do a 20 minute tour if I'm short on time and a 20 minute tour is recommended if I want to try something new. It is recommended that you can watch the most popular tours at the moment and you can also watch the strength workouts and there are also challenges and programs, so when you watch the programs, it actually gives you a lot of rice, uh, if you have a specific goal to accomplish, it's about discovering your power zone, hopefully this will give you an idea of ​​the speed of the Peloton Bike Screen I'm just going to look for some rides, so we'll do a ride with Christine, it'll be 45 minutes .
As I mentioned, I find this quite fast, but if you buy the bike and also, it will be faster. Christine doesn't like hip-hop rides, okay let's see what we have there, and one thing I really like about the peloton infrastructure is that they are always looking to improve things, so the experience on the bike now is better. It was a year ago when I bought the bike there are new things coming in all the time like peloton sessions which means when you go into classes there might be 10 classes lined up and they are all on call rides which means that were recently recorded. but the leaderboards are live so you can choose from 10 different classes all starting in five minutes and you can jump in with a friend and you can be on the same live leaderboard.
I think class buildup is coming soon, so that means if you want to just build up your classes by saying I want to do this warmup, this walkthrough, and then this cooldown, you can do that for me. I really like the peloton sessions. I think the stacking thing, I mean, will improve things, but I don't think it's a

huge

improvement, plus no matter what your ability is, there's a ride or a class for you, so I tend to jump into all the classes. except Tabata. I don'tI like to hit if I see Dr. Tabata on the street. and he may well end up having problems, so when you go into a class, they will give you a resistance range, so you will be in that resistance range and also cadence, so if you are really fit, you will be at the higher end and if you are not as fit you will be at the lower end.
There are also recovery rides or low intensity rides for people who are new to this and then you just graduate to that slightly harder ride and then you'll get a style of ride that you really like. I don't particularly like hitting and hitting, but I do like an uphill ride, lastly, if you ride at the same time every day, so let's say for example you choose midday. class every day that's your class umYou will get to know the people around you because you will have a certain skill and on the leaderboard there will be other people with the same kind of skill as you and you will be with them and you will start to high five those hands with them um, you could try, maybe you know that you always beat someone, um, and then that, but today they're pushing you, which then pushes you or the next person that usually beats you, maybe you want to catch up to them.
So you get like these little platoon friends around you, you'll probably never meet them, but it also adds a competitive advantage. I'm not a competitive person, but I really like it. My archenemy is a lady named Carol. She's 60 and she's from Chelmsford so I mentioned at the start of the video that I'm writing less and there's a good reason for that. What I found for me in general is that I usually do 20 classes of 30 or 45 minutes. I'm not going to 60 or 90, it's basically too long for me. I get bored, tired and don't really enjoy them, so I ride less and do more 20 minute classes because it seems that way. be the sweet spot for my ability, I'm a lifelong asthmatic and have about 65 lung function, so 20 minutes is about right for me.
Plus, I don't get bored and I feel good. I can do that almost every day and what I found out is that I'm also doing a lot of other platoon exercises, so as you saw on the screen before, I'm doing strength exercises and also yoga, which means that every day I could do two workouts so I'll do 20 minutes of strength and then 20 minutes on the bike and that's my 40 minute workout for the day and if you think your time is tight and 40 minutes is a long time I'd say I spent over 40 minutes driving to my gym and back before even doing a workout, so 40 minutes at home directly on the bike or doing another peloton type workout, I mean, you can fit it in very, very easily and I've been so impressed with the peloton as an ecosystem. that I canceled it. my gym I have been going to the same gym for 25 years.
I canceled the gym and this is our workout. We are now building a home gym and have also ordered the platoon tread for that home gym. So while there is a cost involved with the peloton, it will still be cheaper than what I was paying for my gym membership and it will still give me a lot more time in the day, so ultimately, here's my big tip if you're torn between the platoon. bike and the peloton plus so the biggest difference between the peloton and the peloton plus in my opinion I think the peloton plus is uh it's a newer bike obviously it has a faster processor um it's a step up from the platoon, but I've made a whole video about this, so I'm not going to talk too much about it now, but the biggest difference for most people is the ability to rotate the screen to rotate it, so the platoon plus has a returnable rotating screen, while the standard.
Pellet bikes have a fixed screen that you can tilt and tilt, but you can't turn, so if that's your only reason for going for the peloton, plus you're probably looking at packing it right, maybe 600 pounds. More than what I recommend is this, like I told you, it's a standard bike, but check this out, if I want to do a floor workout with my standard bike, I can turn the screen and tilt it down so I can work out and do some yoga or some strength training, so this is due to a device I installed on the back.
Let me show you. There's a kickstand here that raises the screen slightly, which I really like. I think it puts him in a better position, but. It also allows you to rotate the screen, so this device is a fraction of the cost of purchasing the peloton bike. Well, I hope you enjoyed this video and I hope you found it useful. I'll put on my full platoon playlist. here, which includes all my other videos and also the video about this one if you want to get one and until next time, see you soon.
