How to Build a DIY Spin Bike for Apple Fitness+ and Peloton


In a detailed post on his website, developer James Montemagno has shared how he put together the Sunny SF-B1002 Bike, the moofit cadence sensor, a tablet holder, and gel seat cover to build my own at home spin bike ready for Apple Fitness+ and Peloton digital.

Montemagno notes that even though Peloton bikes are beautiful, they are quite expensive which is why he decided to invest in a DIY bike. Moreover, he now has the choice of whatever service he wants to use and not just Peloton.

As to why he chose the Sunny SF-B1002, here’s what he says:

The Sunny Bike is bare bones with no sensors, no display, cage only pedals, and no tablet stand. It does however have one big advantage which is a big beautiful 49 lbs. flywheel. It isn’t magnetic resistance but has a nice leather resistance pad.

It was surprisingly easy to put together as it included great directions and all the tools required.
