Peloton Review: What to Know Before You Buy

If you thrive on the competition and camaraderie of studio cycling classes and are intrigued by the idea of replicating that experience at home, a Peloton Bike could be for you. Becoming a member of the Peloton pack is an investment, requiring roughly $2,000 for the first year and more than $500 each year thereafter. And that’s for the base model. But for a set of indoor-cycling devotees, these recurring costs for live-streaming and on-demand classes make financial sense: Specifically, those who typically take four or more Peloton-style studio classes a week may find the at-home bike and classes to be a superior value in as few as four months.
