I tried everything in this forum and nothing worked. The noise appears to be coming from crank bolt area. After inspecting the whole Peloton I’m feeling a bit anxious that you are 100% right—this thing just isn’t well built. I hope I didn’t just buy a $2K piece of garbage.

Same thing. My bike is pretty news as well. It’s not my cleat it’s a noise in the side the chain area. Now the noise and the twerking I feel in my right pedal is also bothering me. Noise is so bothersome my partner wakes up on next room over in am when I ride. So I need find out how to fix this. I had my Flywheel bike two years zero issues. If this keeps happening I’m selling this thing. I love the sceeen and classes but I do miss my Flywheel bike. It’s a way smoother ride and bike feels built way better. Higher quality.

Under the crank and above the flywheel is a loose sensor — on my bike. They’re replacing the whole bike+. I’ve reversed charges on my credit card so I have leverage if this proves to be a design flaw.

The creaking in my bike is from the crank bolt between the two crank arms. It seems there’s many ways that a Peloton bike can creak! It’s been used less than 15x and it is already showing deterioration. Tomorrow I’ll do what you did—make sure they don’t rip me off.

I’ve posted here a couple times so here’s an update. Theyd did a frameswap about 3 weeks afo and we’ve been riding successfully since. Ido feel nervous and am always sort of “taking it easy” on the bike worried I’ll cause a new problem. This is not really the ideal way to enjoy a piece of exercise equipment. Peloton really missed the mark on so many people having same types of issues. Also going to be a lot more on this forum after the holidays. GLTA

I had a clicking issue with my Bike+ when I first got it. The clicking I was experiencing occurred when I was out of the saddle. There are 2 recessed bolts on the underside of each of the front and rear legs (not the feet) that attach the frame to the legs. I tightened these 4 bolts and haven't heard the noise since.

Thanks. It's not that for my bike, but thank you for sharing another way in which a peloton may click or creak!

Same problem here. Terrible creaking/clicking from the right pedal and it feels like tiny snaps every time I ride out of the saddle.

I sent customer service a video and they said its the bottom bracket and they're sending someone to replace it.

I've only had my bike since the end of September and I've already had to get the wheel bearing replaced, too.

Is there a password for this video?
The password is MEtech. It solved my scraping noise.
