I have loosened the clip at least 6 clicks and I still can’t get my shoes out. I have worn cleats while spinning in the past and have never had any problems. Any other suggestions? Should I buy different shoes? I’m ready to return the bike.

That’s frustrating. It took me a while to get the shoe situation figured out. I remember having to loosen much more than 6 clicks initially. Maybe try to loosen more and then work back if too loose. Also make sure the cleat is very tight on the shoe, otherwise it will just twist when you twist your foot when unclipping.

Thank you! Will do!

I hate to say this because we paid so much for these bikes, but the Peloton pedals are just OK compared to the road bike world. I suggest, and I did this too as a road bike rider, take off the peloton pedals and go to your local bike shop with your peloton shoes and buy new Shimano or quality road bike pedals. You don't need top end road bike pedals since they are not exposed to the weather. Take your shoes as the new pedals may require new cleats and most bike shops will mount the new cleats for you and help with adjusting them properly. Here is another kick in the butt for you, most of the bike world uses Look KEO or Shimano SPD cleats, for some strange reason Peloton chose to use Look Delta cleats which are outdated in the bike world and not compatible with other pedals. I switched my Peloton pedals to Look KEO to match my road bikes so that all of my shoes are now compatible with all of my pedals. Peloton does some things so well and some others, well not so much.
