    We will just have to embrace the liminal and androgynousness that is the Peloton Group. Shit maybe we are a Cult?

    Pedal on.

    "hi honey, what're you up to?"

    "just about to start a session"

    "you on the bike?"

    "no, I'm approaching the nexus of media and fitness"

    Iím on there. I spend most of my time running outside in the summer and fall, so I donít do many of the spin classes. I really like that the classes are on demand, itís hard with my schedule to join live classes. Right now I use the yoga classes and some of the outdoor stuff to change things up. Iíll do the occasional spin class if the weather is really bad. I don't have a peloton bike, wanted to see how much Iíd actually use it first. I may splash out this fall or winter and get their bike.

    FYI- Jess King is the best. Totally weird, but the best. Her EDM classes rock.

    I have only done 1 live class. Never seem to get on the bike at the right time.

    It is pretty addictive. I was on the fence for a while, but when my wife hurt her back, we decided to go for it. Not a cheap venture, but when I see what the Mtn Bikes I rent in Pisgah actually retail for, I think it is a decent investment.

    Yes, it is a stationary bike, but it is really built well, and the screen is interactive. The only thing they missed on is having gear shifters that control the resistance. I would also love if it inclined and declined automatically in sync with the scenic rides, along with automatic resistance changes in sync with the hills, but that would be a much pricier bike I think.

    We put a cheap 55" tv in our workout room. We stream the floor workouts to that. Very nice setup for someone that hates the gym.

    (brag) I got 90 days on the rollers this year. I watched every episode of Narcos, some movies, and 2/3 rds of Breaking Bad...I donít know if I could bail to another platform without trying in a few times first.
    I bet I could put out more watts per session if I joined something that had groups, but I am pretty happy with my results so far this year.
    Thoughts?

    I am going with:

    #PowderRiders

    I will try to make the group all official and shit through FB

    I understand that we wonít all be riding together all the time, but if we build a big enough tribe we might always have a buddy or two to ride with.

    To the previous post about groups being a motivator. I find them to be. Having a live and alltime leader board to pace, as well as my PR for ride lengths has helped me to stay motivated.

    Peloton Group

    Such a long hashtag how will I fit #sweaxyaf on that line too.

    I donít do FB so I donít know shit about the groups or where/how to join the group in the app. I just see an array of hashtags and search them on IG or twitter.

    Tech question: Any tall riders using these bikes? I'm only 6'2" but the $400 spin bike I bought on CL is too small for me (I think it is a rice burner), so of course I should invest in one that costs about 5 times as much and get a monthly subscription

    Smart Trainers. Same things except you use a real bike that you can also ride outside when the mood strikes you.

    Yeah, we get it. Now I need my bike, my wife's bike, kids' bikes. I would have to switch them out. I would then need to subscribe to Peloton anyway, or use Zwift.

    I looked into them. Some looked pretty cool, but Zwift gets mixed reviews. Peloton gets damn good reviews, but I suspect anyone that shells the money out is going to give it a good review just to justify it.

    Whatever works for you is the right answer. I needed something that worked for the whole family.

    Totally adjustable height on handle bars, seat post, and seat slides back and forth. Bit of a learning curve to get the right setting, but it is well marked with letters, so you just write down your optimal settings once you get it dialed.

    How about: #PowRide

    is that short enough to let everyone know you are sweaxy?

    So so we canít link up through a member search through the location line. We can only search through the user name. So the best way to do it really is to just share our usernames with each other.

    Why should the hashtag be anything but #maggots?

    I think the group should simply be called

    #trainingforAK

    I don't think anything is more subtle and perfect, but I will let y'all decide. Like I said, if we have a group, I will have to ride more.
