Or: There is a random clicking noise from my Peloton bike. Help?
First off, your bike should not be making random clicking noises. However, there are a few quick trouble shooting steps you can try before you have to reach out to Peloton support for next tier support.
The first thing to try when a random clicking noise is coming from the pedal area is to make sure your cleats are tight in your bike shoes. Get the screwdriver out and make sure they are completely tight.
The next area to look at is your pedals – specifically the part where the the cleat clips into the pedals. These sometimes have adjustments or screws that can come loose. Take care that, unless you intended to, you are not adjusting the float setting that would allow more flexibility of your cleats in the pedal.
Finally, if your bike isn’t 100% level, the clicking noise could be from one of the feet of the Peloton bike slightly tapping up and down on the floor (this would be more noticeable if your bike was not on carpet). Be sure all feet are level. You can also check the lock nuts on the feet as well, and make sure those aren’t loose and tapping on things.
One reader reported a rarer problem: the clicking noise on their bike was caused by a crank arm alignment issue – “Peloton diagnosed the problem right away as an issue with the bike’s crank arm alignment (a short video was provided). A technician is coming out this week to replace it”
