Welcome to the community!

  1. I started with wearing regular gym shorts, but they would often catch on the saddle when riding out of the saddle. I ended up getting a pair of Pearl iZumi bike shorts from REI for about $50, and also a pair of hiking shorts with a liner for about $20. The hiking shorts are a little tighter to the body than regular gym shorts so they work pretty well, but the bike shorts are tight to the body like a yoga pant so they are my favorite.
  2. I ordered these at the recommendation of other users in similar threads. They are very mild but do a good job getting sweat off the frame and advertise as safe for a Peloton. For the screen get a dedicated electronics cleaner. Windex makes a pretty good wipe that is dedicated for screens and is widely available.
  3. We have our bike set up in the living room, so we cast the Peloton screen to our Fire Stick for doing the yoga classes. A lot of people say they have the best luck with Apple TV, but we haven't had any issues with the stick yet.

Congrats! This is a great way to exercise when you have kiddos at home. I think you'll love it.

As for a mat, I went with one of these from Amazon. I have hardwood floors and this has done a great job of protecting the floor.

For an arm band monitor - do you mean like a heart rate monitor? I use a Garmin chest strap with mine and have had zero connection problems. I love it.

Once you get the bike be sure to check in here and let us know how you are loving it. We've got a fun community here.

u/adambean · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

Thanks all, great feedback! Getting ready to check out stuck on the $100 referral code. ALL of their accessories ... are much cheaper elsewhere in variants.

So, how best to spend it? Per @Kraphtyone, shoes for my wife seems like the best bet (spending an additional $25)?


Shoes: I still don't understand options with the shoes to buy elsewhere (more so for my giant wide feet). Do I need to buy a particular type of cycling shoe with certain cleats?


Heart Rate Monitor: Is this the recommended option? - what about sharing? Would you recommend something over the wrist or chest for sharing?


u/anightperson · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

alright !!!!! that’s SO exciting welcome 💪🏽
one thing you’ll want is to get is Dry Lube Cleat Spray after a few rides unsprayed when you’re out of the saddle it may start to squeak on your pedals. Of course make sure your pedals are tightened. The real culprit however is just friction from the pedals to cleat. Just spray this inside your cleat crevases and wait to dry & the noise should disappear. I bought 1 bottle, sprayed once & the noise hasn’t come back lol in i feel like a little less than a year. so it’s TOTALLY worth.

welcome!! ✨✨✨✨

u/emmygurl09 · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

My husband and I have our DIY setup in our garage and absolutely love it! I was hesitant to purchase a new Peloton since I had never been the workout-at-home type and was worried this expensive piece of workout equipment would become a dust collector in our garage. We decided to try the DIY workaround before investing a lot of money into the "real" thing.

We use a Sunny B1805 with the Wahoo Cadence sensor attached to the crank arm. I really wanted a magnetic belt drive and this one was probably the most affordable we found. I wish we had spent a little more and invested in a bike that comes with SPD pedals since I know we will be upgrading those in the near future. Other than that the bike is great and I highly recommend it!

We live in CA where the weather is mild pretty much all year so we decided to put the bike in our garage. We screen cast the classes to a TV we have hung up on the wall using an AppleTV and use our phones to view cadence in the Wahoo app. I also have a FitBit Versa that I use for HR purposes, though it does not sync with the Peloton app (huge bummer).

Other odds and ends we have in our setup: WiHoo Mini Handheld Portable Fan we attach to the tablet holder, floor fan, a set of Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbells for strength classes (we don't do weights on the bike), and a basic Yoga mat.

It has surprised me just how happy I am with this setup! I thought I would feel like I was missing out by not having the leader board and not being able to track my stats. But I have yet to take a live class since the times don't work well for us west coasters with 9-5 jobs and commutes. And while I would like to be able to see output and resistance, I don't feel like my workout is suffering for not having them. I used to take spin classes regularly and most of those were about feel rather than exact numbers.

We've been using this setup since July and, honestly, I don't see myself buying a Peloton now. If anything I may upgrade to a better bike at some point. But for $20 a month I am getting an excellent workout that dips and sways with my schedule. I don't think I could justify being locked into $40 a month when I don't feel I am missing out much on the extras that come with the full price.

Here's a pic of our setup.

u/anandamides · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

Have you look on craigslist for a used sunny bike? I paid $150 for something similar to this sunny:

I was taking spinning classes in person, and I took a peloton class in nyc and liked the classes better. I wanted to prove to myself that I would use it, so I got the sunny off craigslist. At that point the bike was ~6 months old. I upgraded the bike with SPD clips, a wahoo cadence monitor, and phone holder. Since I was using the app nearly daily, I set up a craigslist alert for a used peloton bike an upgraded. I sold the sunny bike for the same amount I paid for, and the bike was still working great.

The main reason I wanted to upgrade was power zone training. The leaderboard isn't that motivating to me. The exact resistance numbers are helpful but my resistance estimates were pretty good (which I could tell from taking classes in the studio in nyc). My sunny bike was a good intro to peloton, and I don't have regrets. It was a solid bike.

u/cas_sj · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

Welcome here! I'll jump in on some of this....

I've worn Fitbits for several years - like 'em and think they're probably very good as pedometers and overall activity trackers during the day. But they really don't work well for strenuous exercise. The technology with the optical sensors simply doesn't react quickly enough to be accurate.

Much more accuracy with a chest strap heart rate monitor (I think gold standard) - my choice, a Wahoo tickr ( But I've used cheaper models in the past like this Garmin ( and they do fine. A lot of people seem to like the Scosche arm bands ( - I can't speak to the accuracy of those compared to a chest strap.

Regardless of what you go with, you'll want accurate heart rate feedback to sync with your bike (Bluetooth and/or ANT+ connectivity). Unless they've changed things with the newer Fitbits, I don't believe your Fitbit will sync with the bike's Android tablet - you'll want your HR monitor to "transmit" to your tablet so you can follow your heart rate data/zones on the tablet as you ride. [One nice thing you've probably noticed tho - the bike now syncs/uploads your workouts to your Fitbit page - with accurate heart rate data from the bike assuming you're using an accurate HR monitor, so you don't have to log your workouts separately to Fitbit.]

Here's the mat that we use under our bike ( - priced reasonable enough, and works fine. One note - if you're putting the bike on anything other than a hard surface (i.e. carpet), get a thick piece of plywood to go under the mat - really helps with stability.

I use Jaybirds and wouldn't ride without them, but there are much cheaper (and more expensive) options for Bluetooth earbuds. My wife doesn't like riding with earbuds and went with a small external speaker ( that seems to put out pretty decent sound. Regardless of what you go with, you'll want to use something other than the speakers on the bike - they put out plenty of volume, but they're on the back of the tablet and sometimes the instructors sound "muffled" and can be hard to hear.

For what it's worth, my input.... ;-)

ps - Final thought on your concerns about moving the bike. Wheels are at the front, where most of the weight is with the flywheel and tablet, so I think you'll be fine - it's designed to be tipped at the front and wheeled into place.

u/QARunner · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

A fan is essential. I ended up switching from stand fan to a carpet dryer. The carpet dryer fan sits in front of the wheel and blows air up through the handlebars. It's the best fan solution I have found for spinning. There are multiple brands but I have the one below.

Get a heart rate strap. The best one I have found is the Scosche.

I like decent sound while riding so I bought a set of Audio Engine speakers which I connect to the bike bluetooth using an audio engine B1 bluetooth receiver. I got thew small speakers due to available space but they work well with a subwoofer I already had. There are many brands of powered speakers that are cheaper.

Finally, for mood lighting I bought a Phillips Hue Bloom light which I point at wall in front of bike.

u/paulc1978 · 3 pointsr/pelotoncycle

Touch crowd. Since I don’t know where OP lives I can’t recommend a bike shop but it’s worth taking the time to get the right shoes and cleats. It’s worth the effort.

As for HRM straps, this one seems popular with the crowd here. Scosche Rhythm+ Heart Rate Monitor with Armband, Black

And I like the Jaybird X4 for wireless earbuds. Jaybird X4 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones for Sport, Fitness and Running, Compatible with iOS and Android Smartphones: Sweatproof and Waterproof - Black Metallic/Flash

u/Lesbaru · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

Wifey and I got the shoes, the mat, and a set of 2lbs weights so it would look super sleek.

Sorry for the crap formatting below. Mobile/sleeping baby on me.

For headphones these have worked well, though the slack is a little burdensome with longer hair/sweaty neck, you can’t beat the price:

LETSCOM Bluetooth Headphones IPX7 Waterproof, Wireless Sport Earphones, HiFi Bass Stereo Sweatproof Earbuds w/Mic, Noise Cancelling Headset for Workout, Running, Gym, 8 Hours Play Time

For HRM, like others have said - here’s the amazon link. Battery life and quality is great:

Scosche Rhythm+ Heart Rate Monitor Armband - Blue - Optical Heart Rate Armband Monitor with Dual Band Radio ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart

u/SanchoPanza360 · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

My 2 cents, i did end up researching a lot of these questions individually.

  • A) Peloton will automatically insert it based on the old method of 220-age
  • B) ?
  • C) The zone breakdown on the Peloton bike is inaccurate. It is best not to rely on it.
  • D) Most people recommend the Scosche Rhythm+ Heart Rate Monitor Armband, you can find it on Amazon.
  • E) Take the latest average heart rate across all of the FTP tests you've taken, and use the Data Cranker website to calculate your zones.
  • F) ?
  • G) Individual HR zones are based on the physiological process of going from a resting level to a breathless level. Thus it is important to know the resting HR as well.
  • H) Christine D'Ercole has a good write up about how she calls out the cues and how to apply HR Zones. It is in the notes on her Facebook page. More specifically, the beginner instructions and what classes to take regarding Heart Zone training.
  • I) Everyone is different, it really depends on the individual. Be wary of any chest pain, dizziness, lightheadedness or neck/shoulder pain. Talk to your doctor if you are experiencing any symptoms.
u/chailatte_gal · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

I have been an app rider for 2 years. I started out with the app just to see if I liked peloton. For $15 a month I still get a great workout. I can match tempo of the instructors by watching their legs. I still push myself even without metrics. You could always do a Fitbit or Apple Watch if you wanted for heart rate. I just couldn’t justify the price tag when I get a good work out just fine with this bike.

I have this bike. It works great! if you go this route comment back and I can link the mat and iPad holder I have to.

u/NoDepartment8 · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

I got a Sunny flywheel model SF-B1002 in November. I’ve taken spin classes on Schwinn flywheel bikes and the magnetic resistance bikes and strongly prefer the flywheel. I had clip shoes so I upgraded the pedals, added a handlebar mount for my iPad, and got a Wahoo heart monitor and cycling cadence sensor.

My only issue with the Sunny is that I can’t get it leveled on my flooring so it wobbles a bit when I’m out of the saddle. This is a minor annoyance and just reminds me to keep my weight back over the seat and to be firm through my core.

Excluding the app subscription I’ve spent less than $500 on a setup that allows me to take classes that fit my schedule. And since I first started considering the app Peloton have added a bunch of different types of classes so I’m pretty satisfied. I don’t value the leaderboard/shoutout/social aspect of the service (I’m always in the back or off to the side in my own little zone during live classes) so I doubt I’d upgrade to the Peloton bike. If this breaks down I’m more likely to replace it with another Sunny, try to find a Schwinn flywheel bike used from a gym, or to go to live classes instead.

u/Kraphtyone · 3 pointsr/pelotoncycle

49 is a tough size. I would recommend a ratchet or Boa strap tongue for that size of foot. Just don’t get enough purchase with only velcro.

If you don’t like these, I would recommend getting a well reviewed pair from Bike Nashbar or Performance cycle. They will allow you to sort by size. Beyond that, make sure they are 3 hole compatible for the Delta cleats. Good starting shoe on my opinion. Not cheap but not pricey. You can easily spend 2x this in your size. These will last you a long time.

As far as pedal compatibility, Peloton uses the Look Delta interface. You can order the cleats from Amazon.

These have 9 degrees of float, which is what Peloton claims the ones they send with the shoes are. The “originals” from Peloton feel slightly more restrictive. I ordered the Amazon pair to fix the squeaking I get from the cleat while I am out of the saddle. The Amazon pair works just fine, and if you don’t like how much float they have, there is a bi-material pair with only 6 degrees of float.

u/jcasimir · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

I wear a size 14 and did a lot of shoe buying and returning last winter to find a great fit. I don’t think manufacturers spend much time really testing large size shoes — just take the 9/10 they designed and make it longer.

I would strongly recommend a pair of Sidi Ergo 4 or 5 in size 48. Add a pair of Look Delta compatible cleats, like below, and you’re ready to go!

Cleats: BV Bike Cleats Compatible with Look Delta (9 Degree Float) - Indoor Cycling & Road Bike Bicycle Cleat Set

u/hellomarissa · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

Vornado mid-sized fan- got mine from bb&b, used a coupon!

Microfiber towels- from Marshall’s/homegoods/the maxx near the yoga stuff. These are my favorite. I ordered some on amazon and they smelled like chemicals.

Those lavender wipes from amazon

Shoes- get them from peloton if you have a coupon, get a second pair from a bike shop or REI. My spouse got Shimano, which cater more to a wider food. Pearls are a bit more narrow. Bontrager are somewhere in the middle.

Cleats- you’ll need a second set for your second shoes, look delta is the same price on pelotons site and in stores.

HRM- I got the scosche rhythm +, I like it! More accurate then my Apple Watch.

Mat- I got the amazon one and it’s great. No issues. I got a second floor covering to set next to my bike too because mine is on hardwood and the shoes are not friendly to that.

Make sure you properly adjust your seat height, seat distance and handlebars. It’ll make a HUGE difference for your performance and comfort.

Another purchase i made to go with my bike is a good meditation pillow and yoga blocks. I do yoga, but needed more stuff that I always used at a studio. I really like using the app on my tablet/phone.

u/dashboardmelted · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

I got this one (at the recommendation of a user in this sub):

It's worked well for me, and I have it on top of an engineered hardwood floor. I hope you love your bike! Happy cycling!

u/FrauKoko · 4 pointsr/pelotoncycle

The wiki has a great section on shoes n pedals.

Swapping the pedals out is pretty easy. Just be careful to not cross thread. The right and left pedals screw in opposite.

There are a couple of dual clip options in the wiki that have look on one side and spd on the other.

I personally use these and love them.

u/21045Runner · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

I’d recommend the Peloton shoes and mat. The rest of the accessories are garbage

My recommendations:

Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones, Black

Clean Bottle 2-Pack 22oz. Water Sport Cycling Running No Mold Easy Clean

Scosche RHYTHM+ Heart Rate Monitor with Armband, Black

KinHwa Microfiber Sports Gym Towel Fast Drying Fitness Sweat Towels Multi-Purpose Travel Towel for Men and Women Workout 3 Pack 16Inch x 31Inch

u/AJ5577 · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

These are the ones -

u/discodancing · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

Hello everyone! Used a code from here earlier, now leaving my own code:

Also if you're considering getting a bike mat, you can save yourself another $30 and grab this one instead. Perfect fit:

Enjoy your new bike!

u/BaconCPA · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

You need a referral code! PM someone on here for one, it'll save you $100

We didnt ever buy a package. We bought our mat off Amazon for about 30 bucks. Just search exercise bike mat. Here's the one we got:

ProSource Discounts High Density PVC Floor Protector Treadmill Mat, 6.5 x 3-Feet

My wife found her weights at Goodwill. Really all we bought was shoes. Make sure your husband has the Delta clips for the bike. Good luck!!!

u/next_frame · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

I use the Wipex wipes here - Wipex

The sweat will get everywhere anyway so the catcher I've never looked into but these wipes along with the floor mat for me work.

I'm currently using the chest HR from Peloton package but I will probably switch like most but I figured might as well get a few months out of this one.

Small Towels & Screen Cleaner like others have mentioned, Chapstick (Sounds weird but my lips dry quickly on long rides), A good water bottle (I put some of the MiO liquid drops with electrolytes as well).

You'll find your needs as you start riding more and more.

u/kyrajane212 · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

Ok ya. So it didn’t connect the whole work out. And my Steel hr Nokia watch didn’t stay connected either bc it was too loose. Going to get the one recommended. Is this the correct one everybody! Is the best place to get it amazon?
Scosche RHYTHM+ Heart Rate Monitor with Armband, Black

u/o2go · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

I just bought the official Peloton toe cages--they are these but come with a set of Look Delta cleats. TBH, they seem like a bit of a hack and given the inevitable play between shoe and cage--clipping in/out should prove to be entertaining. In retrospect, I think I'd probably get some flat pedals instead.

u/GirrrlBye · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

Hi. I found the Peloton shoes extremely uncomfortable so I changed the pedals on my bike and reverted back to my spin shoes that I used before and in my opinion are way better. (I am very mechanically challenged and found the task to be very easy after watching a couple YouTube vids)

Here is what I purchased but found it for about half the price:
Schwinn Triple-Link Pedals

You don’t have to limit yourself to the LOOK Delta style cleats. My advice would be find shoes that you like and are comfortable. If they are not LOOK then change the pedals on the bike.

u/TechnoTheDarkOne · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

Hey Huggy Bear,


I ended up canceling my order for the Mad Dogg pedals and ordered the Schwinn Triple-Link Pedals, since the Mad Dogg pedals were going to take a week to deliver from Amazon. They were half the cost of the Schwinn and had good reviews with Peloton compatibility, but I wanted them sooner.


They also support Look and SPD, and have cages.






u/golden_light_above_u · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

Definitely worth getting in my opinion. Without it I feel like I don't really know how I'm doing -- it's feedback that I use to know when I'm truly pushing myself vs. 'gee it really seems like I'm sweating now!'

You don't need to spend $60 either. This chest strap from Garmin is simple and bulletproof. Never had an issue connecting, and I use it on both my Peloton and road bike.

u/lileor · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

I didn't buy any accessories from Peloton directly since there was no offer at the time and the referral program was still the old version where both parties got 2 months free. If you use a referral code to get $100 off accessories, I would suggest to use it toward shoes ($125) and buy everything else you need elsewhere.

Bought Diadora and Shimano shoes for me and DH from UK cycling sites at substantial discounts that offered free shipping.

Got the mat and wireless earbuds from Amazon.
2.5 x 5' mat:
Earbuds (I have an older version); I only use them on the bike so I didn't want to spend too much:

Also got a Mio Link HRM from Amazon that died within a few months, so I replaced it with the Scosche Rhythm+, which was recommended by many other riders.

I don't do arms while riding, so didn't buy weights.

u/Velodromed · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

Dual-sided pedals with toe cages on one side usually have toothy flats or SPD on the other. SPD pedals will have small jaws that face and resemble each other--see the pedal at this link for an example. It's hard to recommend shoes (as fit and feel is a matter of subjective experience) so I recommend visiting your LBS and trying some on, or ordering a few different types from a seller who offers free return shipping.

u/trudesign · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

Got these cleats:

Good selection. I now have a new project, to build a Peloton Cubbie for shoes, towels, fan and speaker. Nice

u/OrdinarySeesaw · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

We don't share because of all the sweat :)
I bought 3 of these $22 Garmins and they seem to work great.

u/rude119 · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

I don't know if you meat to ask this question to me since I didn't mention a mat but I would recommend this one from Amazon: Amazon Bike Mat. I purchased my mat from amazon (I think it was this one) when we had another bike before Peloton, I just kept it and used it since the Peloton mat was so expensive and this worked just fine. This one is a bit smaller than the Peloton one but it still works and I have plenty of room for the bike and some kettle bells. The Peloton mat is nothing special, just Peloton branded.


I also found this one from Walmart Bike Mat from Walmart, just not sure the quality of it or if it's as thick. It's also not free shipping unless you get over $35 or ship to store. This one seems a bit bigger than the Amazon one and more on par with the Peloton mat dimensions.


You can also get the weight from Amazon, colors will be a little funky, but much more economical than Peloton weights. You can get a set of 2#, 3#, and 5# weight for about $29... Amazon Dumbbell Set

u/Lovelablife · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

Thank you so much. I found a pair on amazon for 45 - just didn’t know if they were any good. Shimano PD-M520L Clipless Bike Pedals 9/16in

u/mtmtb · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

I ended up finding an exact match to my extra wide MTB shoes online and wanted another pair for the Peloton. I didn’t even realize they would only take the delta or SPD-SL three hole cleat.

I bought these converters off Amazon and they’ve been awesome!

u/flnative08 · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

Your welcome.. I was looking on the Peloton FB page and sure enough everyone else is using them based on the comments. I bought their new version for my wife and she loves them.

u/tiffani_atx · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

According to this a "gentle" cleanser is recommended. I personally use Clorox wipes but I'll be switching to these when I run out. My gym has something similar and they seem to be very effective.

u/bertman88 · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

I saw this one from another post by u/AttackJacks and it works great!

I use this and it definitely makes a difference.

I got these in size 16 back in November. Also had to get these to clip on the bike. Almost 200 rides in and they’re great.

BV Bike Cleats Compatible with Look Delta (9 Degree Float) - Indoor Cycling & Road Bike Bicycle Cleat Set

u/skooba83 · 8 pointsr/pelotoncycle

You didn't miss out on all that much to be honest. The shoes are a nice bonus, the rest of the stuff is cheaper/better elsewhere. Snag a referral code from someone and that takes the shoes down to effectively $25.

Buy this mat for $22

Get a better heart rate monitor (the included chest strap one has connection issues if you aren't sweaty)
I bought this one, though I bought it off Google Express and used a 20% coupon.

Weights? I had a set lying around, or just go to walmart and pick up a set. Same deal with a water bottle.
Headphones? I don't use them, but I have plenty of headphones lying around if I decide to.

u/Tonydb11 · 3 pointsr/pelotoncycle

Peloton uses look delta pedals and therefore you need to get Look Delta cleats.

I got these off amazon to solve a squeaky cleat issue I was having with the peloton cleat:
Look Delta Bi Material Cleat, Red

As far as the shoe you can get any cycling shoe that supports a 3 hole cleat.

u/macmutant · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

Rebok makes a good pair of indoor cycling shoes, and you can purchase Look Delta cleats separately. Both are available via Amazon. The Peloton delivery guys put the cleats on our shoes for us.



u/filthyskills87 · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

cadence and speed is the same thing in spinning, the other wahoo sensor is speed which can be used to calculate distance based on the RPM and size of the fly wheel - not as import in spinning where you are more concerned with cadence/resistance/output (power)


There is a nice chart of what the different wahoo sensors do on amazon.

u/ClipIn · 4 pointsr/pelotoncycle

Peloton support sells the Exustar "Adaptor For Clip-In Pedals" model # E-SL02A-1. Here's a pic:

They should be about $30 pre-tax most anywhere. They're $29 on amazon here:

u/IcyKettle · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

But the reviews aren't great.

There are more options if your wife were willing to switch to a different platform, like SPD. There's a ton of SPD/flat hybrid pedals out there. Cheers.

u/michaeltheg1 · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

I wipe down the mat and the bike after every ride with natural lavender + vinegar wipes ( I also wipe my shoes off with the wipes. Works well for me.

u/ettibol · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

Depending on the sealant and construction, I would not want to drip a puddle of sweat regularly on any type of hardwood. But not everyone perspires that much. Hardwoods also range in softness, so it's possible that a softer wood could be prone to impressions from shoes.

This is half the price of the Peloton mat if you don't want to use funds from a referral code for the mat: I bought from the showroom without knowing about codes and they gave me a $100 promotional credit, which I used towards Peloton shoes.

u/Arturo3 · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

We have these on both of our bikes since last August, and they work great. No issues at all:

u/poleman14 · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

I have found the wrist based HRM's to be pretty unreliable. Ended up getting one of the Garmin chest straps which pairs instantly with the bike and costs between $16-$22.

u/yanetors11 · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

I use this mat for my bike:

I like it and think it still leaves ample room for the bike and feels like it takes up considerably less space even though its only 1/2 foot less in width and 1 foot less length. No experience on my end with the HRM though.

u/Melgamatic214 · 4 pointsr/pelotoncycle

I got this one for $26 Amazon Prime and it seems to be working very well.

u/ryangirtler · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

May want to give these a try. I had a similar issue and it turned out to be the type of cleats that came with the peloton shoes. Ended up buying 2 pairs of these for my wife and I.
Hopefully if works for you too.

BV Bike Cleats Compatible with Look Delta (9 Degree Float) - Indoor Cycling & Road Bike Bicycle Cleat Set

u/redditmatt5 · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

You can buy cages from Peloton that install on the bottom of the pedal so you can slip a running shoe in, but we tried them, and they kinda sucked, your feet just weren't in the right place.

So we bought a set of these replacement pedals, and it works great until you get shoes that clip in, or for the occasional visitor that might want to try it out, but doesn't have clip in shoes:

Cage on one side, clip in on the other.

Beware, I'm not sure these are the same clips of the default Peloton pedals. They have standard indoor cycle clips. I thought the standard Peloton pedal was different, however, we never used them to clip in.

u/etm117 · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

u/toplessbooks · 3 pointsr/pelotoncycle

I have a Sunny belt style bike, I replaced the seat, added a cadence sensor, and bought a heart rate monitor. I am looking to replace my petals with clip in ones soon but have not done it yet. In total it all has cost me about $400 (minus the future petals and shoes). I have my bike situated facing a wall with peg board and I rest my ipad on the peg board while I ride. The only down side to my set up is I have to guess on my resistance as my bike does not have a digital resistance readout.

I did recently see that Bowflex came out with a bike it costs about twice what my set up is ($899 - so still half of what a Peloton is), and it will work out of the box with Peloton with no additions needed and a few extra bonuses my bike does not have like two water bottle holders and weight racks. Hard to justify the cost when I already have a functioning set up, but if I was starting from scratch that is what I would do.

I've been using Clear Gear Sports Spray. I even use a quick spray inside my Peloton shoes after each ride.

Sounds like you got the bimaterial cleats instead of the standard plastic.

Is this the mat that everyone is talking about from amazon? It comes up first in the search as a bestseller.

I use the Peloton shoes. When I bought the bike, I bought shoes for me and my wife. In the box that came with the bike, there was a 3rd pair of cleats. I swapped those with the ones on my shoes.

I didn't buy an extra pair of cleats. A new pair is $14 on amazon

This mat rocks. Cheaper than the Peloton branded one. Of you are putting it on hardwood you're set. If you're putting it on carpet I recommend going to Home Depot and spending $20 on 3/4" chipboard cut to the size of whatever mat you get.

You can use whatever shoe/pedal/cleat combination you want. I bought these to adapt the Peloton bolt pattern to a SPD cleat type

u/BanThisLol · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

90% of cyclocross shoes and 100% of mountain bike shoes are SPD. Search those two categories, you'll find a ton.

And if you do end up finding road shoes you want, you can always get these cleats so they're compatible.

They're SPD cleats for Look style shoes.

I do not own these but have thought about getting them. Schwinn Triple Link. Have seen a lot of recommendations for them.

So if you are willing to change your cleats to ‘Look’ Deltas, this will do it.Look Delta Toe Clip Pedals

i too use a towel on the handlebars, but I do a full wipe down with these

I bought this Scosche HRM: since it syncs to your bike, it doesn’t require any adjustments for swapping between users... We don’t use it at the same time so no input on if it gets too sweaty to share....

SHIMANO PD-M520L Clipless Bike Pedals 9/16in

It’s made a huge difference! I used to have the hardest time clipping in and out with the Peloton pedals not to mention they were always loose with my clips no matter how often I tightened them.

u/GlennSpins · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

With the new clips, adjust the binding tension so you can "forcefully" twist out of them. When you're out of the saddle climbing, you shouldn't have any real twisting force that would release the cleat.

For squeaks, I use this on my pedals...
