Same with me, I just generally have VLOGS Youtube from GCN, Harry's Garage, trainerroad etc whilst I'm on Wattbike ... can't really tell you whats going on as I'm usually wondering why the last 30 second effort felt like it last 30 mins smile
Very much this

Unless Im doing a recovery ride exclusively in Z2 (which is rare) I just dont bother with trying to watch anything, its thrash metal and 160bpm dance music all the way. And a sick bag

Can anyone suggest non Peloton shoes which fit the Peloton cleats. It's my wifes bike (which has cleats fitted) and I fancy a go but don't want to spend 120 on the official shoes. TIA

Any cycling shoe with a 3 bolt fitting will work.

You’ll need a pair of Look cleats too, you can’t easily swap them between shoes.

Are the Shimano SPD cleats suitable. Cheers

No. A peloton comes with Look-compatible pedals as standard so you need Look cleats assuming it’s standard. It’s like needing an Apple charger to charge Apple products. Look pedals don’t fit shimano cleats and vice versa.

Choose your shoes with 3 bolt compatibility then buy these

Yes, you may be better with these

as they offer some float which allows some movement, I didn’t realise I linked to zero float cleats in the first response. explanation of float here:

https://www.cyclingweekly.com/fitness/bike-fit/sho...

But the gist of it is “ movement, normally in the form of the heel moving towards or away from the bike, allows the foot to centre itself during the pedal stroke.

The main reason riders choose a floating cleat is that the positioning of the cleat on the base of the shoe is slightly less critical than that of a fixed-position cleat”

hehe that's what I have.

I bought it for the wife a couple of years ago and we didn't use it much.

Since lockdown though its been used a lot. Wife has Les Mills on our smart TV and she does the RPM spin class on it. I use it for Les Mills The Trip which is like riding through a virtual course. Quite a few to choose from and I'm really enjoying them.

I appreciate its a very basic and cheap bike (think I paid under £200 for it a few years ago) but I've been pleasantly surprised by it. I usually steer well clear of 'home use' gym equipment as its usually utter crap but this is very well built and does the job.

Just started to look at that Wattbike Atom you posted above though and having dirty thoughts!

We bought the Peloton system a cpl of months ago.

The classes we get subsidised/free via the health insurance. My wife uses the yoga classes everyday along with her mother and all of us use the Peloton bike at different times of the day...we've renovated the barn for them to live in. Its a one shop system that offers ease of use, fitness, variety within 10seconds of convenience. Absolutely perfect.

The classes are just that, fitness/spin classes basically with a bit of variety thrown in. The system is absolutely perfect for what it offers. It doesn't pretend to be anything else.

Is it expensive? Hell yes. Is it worth it? Depends on your circumstances. For us...absolutely. The whole system is used by multiple people, multiple times a day. Without any need for going anywhere near buggering about with an actual bike outside. I do 5km walks and run out onto our lanes for that.

Its expensive, but perfect for our circumstances.
