Hey all,

My bike is a 2020 second hand bike but with very few rides (~35). It functions well other than this mysterious noise that occurs. I tried tightening everything I can tighten, inspecting it closely, and still can't figure out what's triggering the noise or causing the noise. It makes a sharp metallic clank that sounds like it's coming from the front. It usually occurs 2-3 times in the first 5 minutes of riding and is quiet the rest of the ride. It's most noticeable in the 30 minutes after riding making about 5-10 random loud clanks, then it's silent again. Has anyone else experienced this? Peloton support initially said that the belt needs to be realigned and the sprocket is hitting the frame. The belt itself looks aligned and in good condition when I removed the belt cover. Now they're suggesting that the magnet is hitting the flywheel and the frame needs to be swapped? When adjusting the resistance knob, none of the magnets touch the wheel and I've never seen it hit the wheel when the sound occurs. It doesn't sound like peloton support is sure what is going on either. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

@darojess did you ever figure this out? What you describe almost sounds like the sound you might hear when parking a motorcycle after a ride. Hot metals contracting will cause loud clanking noises. But on your Peloton you shouldn't have anything that heats up metal parts to the point where you'd experience the same. Or have you noticed any parts getting very hot to the touch?

Thanks for the reply @PedalStomper . I haven't really found th exact cause. I've talked to another customer rep that recommended replacing the resistance rod and the magnet assembly. There's no technicians nearby so I'm just about to do the swap myself. 馃

You may be right now though. The flywheel gets warm after a ride and I'm pretty sure that's where the noise is from. I'm wondering if somethings tightened too much and the change in temperature is what's causing the noise.
