Hello friends , bought a bike+ recently and noticed left to right vibrations and shaking when going at high speeds. Tech came and tighten all screws but problem still exists.
The only remedy is to lower the screen but that would make riding uncomfortable.

Thoughts ?

I’m on day 2 of my bike+ after having the original bike for over 2 months. I felt this problem right away - the screen vibrations are crazy especially if you’re not holding the handlebars. Reached out to support and they said the handlebar may need replacing - checking the technician availability now but this is pretty odd! I first thought it was the stabilisers, did you notice they now have only 2 each instead of 3 on the old bike which was rock stable..

I would be curious about what Peloton does to fix if anything. I saw this if I try to get to 120 and assumed this was just because I am a big guy. As a new rider, I am far from smooth in my peddling, and 120 is not really in control for me.

Interestingly, no one from Peloton seems to acknowledge this issue. I had a technician out to my house yesterday and he made no mention of this. I’ve had multiple chats and conversations with Peloton, again nothing. I finally went to a Peloton store today and the woman said this most definitely happens with the bike+, due to the rotating screen. Have you heard anything further from Peloton?

100% my experience as well. This issue is a lot more widely spread than the public seems to be aware of. I know people who returned their Pelotons because it was that shaky. I never had that issue with the Peloton at the gym, which is the commercial version. The at-home version is hands down shaky and the technician who came tweaked a few screws and quickly left after he realized i wasn't buying his assurances everything was fine. You reach out to Peloton and they act as if they have never heard of this issue. Hands down, the commercial Peloton is a more stable, durable machine than what they sell retail consumers.

My Bike+ was delivered Friday, and I definitely notice the play in the bars. It's not a deal-killer, but I'm disappointed.

Definitely sounds like something is off. Have you made sure your leveling feet are truly in full contact with the floor? Sometimes they look like they are, but they're actually floating. I've had my Bike + for 2 months now, and I have no shaking or rattling, and my top speed has been like 120-130 cadence.

I totally agree. I had an old spin bike and it didn’t have any movement. This bike+ shakes a lot left to right when I stand up to ride so much that if I look at the screen I get dizzy. I seriously thought they installed the feet incorrectly but I can’t see anything wrong with the feet. I did read the original bike had three stabilized feet and this one only has two on front and back.

I've seen several posts on this issue. Some have found that just tightening three bolts where the handlebars meets the shaft did the track. For others who were persistent with Peloton support, Peloton sent out a technician and ended up replacing the sleeve and/or handlebars. Handlebars shouldn't shake.
