    I'd guess $1500-$2000. I've never used one before. Is it for upper body strength? I don't see myself using that over the bike.

    Didn't realize this thread was here. I've had a Peloton for 18 months or so after deliberating for about 12 months prior to that. I accomplished some pretty big weight loss back in 2015-2016 but injuries from over-training piled up and I got myself to a point where my knee and ankles became so screwed up that my usual work outs on the elliptical and treadmill became a real killer.

    The Peloton bike not only saved me in terms of workouts, but it got me to a point where I could start doing those other things in moderation again. The thing is stupidly expensive (I'm still paying mine off), but it's been worth every penny. I usually ride 5 days a week.

    I'm actually a pretty big Wilpers fan. Love Power Zone training. I also enjoy Olivia and Dennis. And lately, Kendall because her playlists are better than just about everyone else.

    Hey. Supporter

    First (and last) time I’ll be watching. Let’s go Boo Crew.

    Maybe so, maybe not.

    Kendall's new emo ride (9/5/21) was typically great playlist and pretty damn difficult. I was coasting through the first half of class and then MakeDamnSure hit and she was asking for 80 resistance with 70-75 cadence. Yeeeeeeeessssssshhhhh!

    Hey. Supporter

    Bradley has a new 20 minute pop punk ride. Will take it tonight.

    @maryp1603 I love Bradley's pop-punk rides. He is a ridiculous human.
     
  14. Been doing the discover your power zone program. It's more mental than physical. Actually sticking to the zone call outs instead of doing as much work as possible us tough because you feel like you aren't working hard enough. But gonna stick to the program and hope to see a difference at the end.
     
  15. Has anyone replaced their pedals in the peloton? It's recommended to every year but I don't really understand why
     
  16. Drewski

    Maybe so, maybe not.

    Usually takes me a few months between PRs, but I managed to get both a 30 minute and 20 minute PR last week.

    Got the 20 minute on Bradley Rose's 20 minute Pop Punk Ride from 8/18/21, beating my 249kj with a 252kj. This entire forum would love the playlist on that one.

    Got the 30 minute PR on Ben Alldis' 30 minute Climb Ride from 4/19/21, with a 376kj beating out 372kj. Pushed so hard in the "cool down" to get the PR I nearly puked haha.

    Has anyone dealt with MCL ( lower inner knee) pain in one knee while riding? The second I get on the bike basically, it hurts. No matter if I do a low impact or a ride with lots of standing. I’ve asked a friend to look at my form on the bike, seat height, closeness, etc. everything looks as it should, but neither of us are experts. I’m 5’6 and have my seat at 20 for height and B for closeness.

    A google search mentions moving your cleat on the bottom of the shoe so it’s more inward, but I need to find that tool, which might be a challenge. ‍

    if anyone has experienced something similar or has tips, I’m interested in advice!

    I would recommend getting a professional bike fitting. I paid $150 for Team Wilpers to do one over FaceTime and it totally changed my ability on the bike. $150 sounds steep, but a new injury or aggravating an existing one would be even worse.

    You can see a bunch of people's positive experiences here, However, if you read this post it seems like the quality has gone down recently and they recommend VirtualBikeFitting.com.

    I will look into something like that, I didn’t realize it existed. Thank you.

    Hey. Supporter

    Worth it?
     
  25. Haven't done any workouts yet but it was only 30 bucks. I could have used the Roku app on a tv to do workouts but I wanted to use the heart rate monitor and for the data to be collected. I think it will be worth it.
