An Android-powered Peloton Bike?

Posted by Trent Nouveau

Designed from the ground up by Peloton in NYC, the Peloton bike merges a slick design with modern technology powered by Google's popular mobile Android operating system.

"With a near-silent belt drive system and a magnetic resistance flywheel, this bike rides smooth and quiet, [with] carbon steel and monocoque construction " a Peloton Bike representative wrote in a recent Kickstarter post.

"[It also features a] 21.5" Full HD, multitouch console, connecting your home WiFi to deliver live and on demand studio cycling classes from the best cycling instructors - anytime."

Indeed, the Peloton homescreen provides quick access to fantastic classes broadcast live or on demand.

"[So you can] choose your favorite instructor, class type, or find a ride that's popular with your friends," said the representative. "Live classes are broadcast from Peloton's studio in NYC on a regular basis each day and new on demand classes are always added to the on demand library so you can get a great workout anytime."
