Maintaining Your Pedals
It’s important to maintain your pedals to keep them in good working order. We strongly recommend that you inspect your pedals on a monthly basis to make sure that they are clean, turn smoothly, and are free of any damage.
In addition, you should also tighten your pedals occasionally in order to make sure they are securely fitted to your Peloton bike. To get familiar with the easy and important process of tightening your pedals, please watch the below video.
- Before you tighten your pedals, turn your resistance knob fully to the right to lock the flywheel and crank.
- The left pedal is reverse threaded. When facing the left-side crank arm, you must turn the pedal counter-clockwise to tighten it. Thus, turning to the left (towards the front of the bike) tightens the left pedal.
- The right pedal is threaded normally, therefore, when facing the right-side crank arm, you must turn the pedal clockwise to tighten it. Thus, turning to the right (towards the front of the bike) tightens the right pedal.
Replacing Your Pedals
Pedals on any stationary bike should be replaced regularly to avoid failures that can result from wear and tear. We highly recommend replacing your pedals annually as part of routine maintenance to ensure that your Peloton Bike remains in proper working order.
