    I looked at the peloton but you can get a cycleops Bluetooth trainer and a pretty good bike for less. Using that with Zwift or Roovy
    Gives you exceptional training options for $15 a month or less. Also, the Bluetooth trainers automatically adjust the resistance as you climb or descend for a more realistic experience. Also, when the weather is nice you can get out and ride!

    Here is my setup and I love it!

    We are into our 3rd year with the Peloton bike. My wife, daughter and I use it all the time and we still love it. The bike has been trouble free for what must be 1000s of miles and the classes never get boring. We love it.

    I have a treadmill with iFit. Seems like the same concept.

    I bought a Peloton about a year ago and love it! I have about 160 rides so far.
    I ride my "real" road bike outdoors when the weather is good but hit the Peloton a lot during the winter, or when I don't have the time for a full road ride. I find I actually get a better workout on the Peloton because the instructors really push me and I get competitive with the other people in the class. You always see where you rank on the "Leaderboard" whether it's a live class or a replay out of the library. If someone passes me, damn it I'm going to pass them back! There is always music and the time flies by. The instructors are great. Occasionally they'll have a current Tour de France or other professional rider lead a class which is fun and interesting. I end up burning 600 - 700 calories in a 45 minute session.
    For me, it was well worth it.

    Not to hijack this thread (since stretchgeneral is my neighbor :)), I started my own titled The Future of Fitness. For some it can be a great add on to your existing Peloton or other exercise bike.
