A Step-by-Step Guide to Setting Up Your New Peloton Bike

We are thrilled to have you join the Peloton family. Follow these steps to get started.

Step 1

Moving Your Bike+

With two front stabilisers and weighing 140 lbs/63.5 kg, the Bike+ is 140 lb/63 kilos. It is best to have two adults transport it from one room to another.

  1. To place your Bike+ on the floor, face your rear and lift the rear stabilizer to move the bike+ onto the front wheels.

  2. We recommend that you ask another person to help you lift your Bike+. Lift the front stabilizer and monitor arm by bending at the knees.

  3. To transport the Bike+ upstairs the front end of your bike should be pointed downwards. This is where most of the weight will be held.

Do you need to climb stairs or navigate around corners? If the touchscreen is not already removed, you might consider disconnecting it.

Step 2

Attaching the Touchscreen

To Disconnect

  1. Unplug power and audio cables.
  2. To turn the touchscreen, face the opposite direction from the bike.
  3. Move the touchscreen upwards.
  4. To remove the touchscreen bolts from your monitor arm, use a 4mm Allen wrench.
  5. Slide the touchscreen off the arm.

To connect:

  1. Place the touchscreen on the arm of the monitor.
  2. To tighten the bolts on the monitor arm, use a 4mm Allen wrench.
  3. To face your bike, rotate the touchscreen.

Step 3

Stabilising Your Bike+

  1. Move the outer feet of the rear and front stabilisers counterclockwise so that they are firmly on ground.

  2. Use your hands to gently rock the bike so it doesn’t wobble.

Step 4
