So Peloton offers a few different packs of accessories depending on what additional equipment you are looking for. They range anywhere from $159 up to $449 if you are looking to get an extra set of gear for another person. Here's what's included in each.

The Essentials- $159.
-Includes Peloton shoes (with cleats), weights, and headphones

The Works- $249
-Includes Peloton shoes (with cleats), weights, headphones, a heart rate monitor, and a bike mat

The Family Pack- $449
-Includes two pairs of Peloton shoes (with cleats), two heart rate monitors, two water bottles, two pairs of headphones, one set of weights, and one bike mat.

Since the shoes are $125 on their own, it might be worthwhile to look into one of these packages if you're interested in them. I should mention that they are other brands that have been making cycling shoes for much longer than Peloton and most of them are much cheaper and comparable in quality.

Not really seeing anything here that you couldn't buy for less from a competing brand, if you don't care about the logo. I know they also sell apparel. Over the holidays there were some pretty good offers of up to $100 on certain bundles.

A lot of people are suggesting that you clip into the bike as it makes you use more of your hamstring as opposed to your quad. Anyone know if alternative cleats like Nike are compatible with this bike? Wouldn't you just need the right connector?

There are some BV bike cleats up on Amazon that have been listed as compatible with the Peloton. They seem to also address the squeaky cleat issue that many Peloton owners have reported. They pair perfectly with Shimano SH-R065 shoes for the bike. https://www.amazon.com/BV-Cleats-Compatible-Delta-Degree/dp/B01B8P8FL6/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&qid=1530714865&sr=8-4&keywords=look+delta+cleats&linkCode=sl1&tag=peloton0a-20&linkId=5311c85b6acad5c30523bae9e1a6a58d&language=en_US

Thanks for sharing that Jmac11! I see no need to buy the Peloton branded shoes, especially at their price. From reviews it seems like these provide better lateral movement of your feet too, which should be better on the joints.

Too bad hardware seems to be an issue and is something anyone who hasn't bought, should consider before going through with the purchase.
However at the same time those overwhelming positive reviews do help and reaffirm the decision to buy them.

What hardware issues have you seen around this bike? A lot of the negative reviews I've seen, stem from the initial delivery/build when the bikes aren't being set up properly.
