Tightening Your Pedals
We recommend tightening your pedals after your first few rides to make sure they are securely fitted to your Peloton Bike or Bike+. Follow the instructions below to tighten your pedals.
Replacing Your Pedals
Pedals on any stationary bike should be replaced regularly to avoid failures that can result from wear and tear.
To properly maintain your Peloton Bike or Bike+, we strongly recommend you replace your pedals annually. New pedals are available on Peloton’s website. Follow the instructions below to replace your pedals.
If you have any issues replacing your pedals, we will be happy to walk you through the process. To contact our Member Support Team, click here.
Adjusting Your Pedal Tension
If this is your first time clipping in and you're having difficulty, or if your shoes start to feel loose in the pedals, you can adjust the tension on the pedals for a more comfortable fit. The tension screws are located on the back of the pedals and help hold your cleats and shoes securely to the Bike or Bike+. Adjusting the tension periodically to ensure you have the optimal fit for your personal preference is recommended. Below is an image of the tension screw.
Before adjusting the tension on the pedals, lock the flywheel and crank in place by turning the knob fully to the right.
- Turn the pedal upside down so that screws are visible.
- The tension screws are located on the back of the pedals with a plus and minus sign above them.
- If you are having trouble clipping into your Bike or Bike+, or if it is too difficult to unclip from the Bike/Bike+, we recommend loosening the pedal tension using the 3 millimeter Allen key included with your Bike/Bike+.
- To loosen the pedal tension, turn the screw toward the minus sign (counterclockwise) one-quarter of a turn at a time. After each quarter turn, try clipping in.
- If it becomes too easy to clip in, we recommend tightening the pedal tension using the 3 millimeter Allen key included with your Bike/Bike+.
- To tighten the pedal tension, turn the screw toward the plus sign (clockwise) one-quarter of a turn at a time. After each quarter turn, try clipping in.
