That may be a heavy lift. As you may be aware, the time frame for owners to return the Tread+ for a full refund was November 2022. As I understand it, Peloton has extended that window well into 2023. However no doubt most Tread+ owners (like me) have already returned the Tread+ for full refund or made a decision to keep it. Also, per Consumers Reports (believed reliable):
“ “By law, retailers must pull recalled items from sale. But it is perhaps less well-known that the law also makes it illegal to sell recalled products on the secondhand market.” “
Recalled products are being sold on Craigslist and Facebook, Consumer Reports says. These dangerous secondhand products are also being sold in thrift stores and at yard sales. Learn what you can do to protect yourself from this illegal practice.
So a Tread+ owner‘s best option is to take the Peloton refund offer. Or make the decision to keep,it knowing he/she may never be able to resell it. (At about 500 pounds, he/she may never be able to move it either!!!) A chancy secondary option for a fellow Tread+ owner is to wait for a Federal Government approved fix of the safety issue. That would solve the resell dilemma. However who knows when and if and what.
