Hi! Yes, there is definitely some variance with calibration with the original Peloton bikes. I did a couple of rides at the studio in NY and the bikes were both harder than my bike at home. Peloton said somewhere that there was a variance of about 10% but it does seem to be more than that in some cases. There's info out there on how to re-calibrate your bike.This is random, but I’m so curious:
I was using a friend’s bike for a few months and fell in love with it. Bought one of my own and just received it. It feels much harder than the bike I was using before. My output is half what it used to be. Anyone know anything about this? Or have any suggestions?
If you have a Bike+ those are supposed to re-calibrate digitally so there shouldn't be a difference in theory.
