I think it us OUTRAGEOUS that people are suing Peloton for the music purge. However what’s more OUTRAGEOUS IS people who have bikes or treds are paying more per month for membership and
availability of classes as opposed to app members with no Peloton merchandise for more than 50% less. What are you doing to apeal to the real members or people who buy the merchandise? Now there is no Peloton delivery it service people! WOW!!
