Using Dual-Platform Commercial Bike Pedals
⚠ Warnings and Safety Instructions
The Peloton Commercial Bike may be equipped with dual-platform pedals. One side of these pedals is compatible with Shimano SPD clips. The other side has a toe cage for use with athletic shoes. Always cycle with appropriate footwear. Never ride the Bike barefoot. Cycling barefoot or with inappropriate footwear can cause serious injury.
If using the clip-in side of the pedal, always cycle using footwear equipped with appropriate cleats. Make sure that your cleats are properly positioned and all bolts are fully tightened before clipping in. Riding with loose cleats could lead to serious injury.
Do not attempt to walk in cycling shoes with cleats. Wear cycling shoes only while using the Peloton Commercial Bike and remove them immediately after clipping out. Walking on cleats may cause you to fall or twist your ankle, or otherwise result in serious injury. Be careful when clipping in and out. While you may need to use some force, excessive force or aggressive movements could result in an ankle, foot, or leg injury.
Using SPD Toe Clips
Make sure the toe cages are facing the floor. Point your toes down to fit the tip of the cleat into the pedal, then push down through your heel.
To clip out, hold down the resistance knob and kick your heel away from the bike.
Using Toe Cages
Always wear appropriate athletic footwear when using the Bike or Bike+.
- Thread the toe cage strap up into the buckle and out through the other side. Make sure the straps on both toe cages are threaded through the buckles and there is enough room in the cages for your shoes to slide in easily.
- Standing over the Bike or Bike+, insert one foot into its toe cage.
- Pull the end of the strap to tighten the toe cage. It should be snug, but loose enough that you can remove your foot without difficulty.
- Push the pedal down to its lowest position. Standing on the pedal should allow you to lift yourself into the saddle.
- Insert your other foot into its toe cage and pull the strap to tighten the toe cage. It should be snug, but loose enough that you can remove your foot without difficulty.
