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-Co...11c85b6acad5c30523bae9e1a6a58d&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.

The L handle to tighten/loosen adjust the saddle slide is cheap plastic and failed. Being mechanically inclined and having a lot of tools at home helped where I’m sure many owners might be stuck with this problem. A call to customer service was very nice and there was an offer to help but no parts are available so no help was realized from Peloton ultimately. You may want to get out ahead of this common problem of poor engineering and cheap construction. They know about the problem but do not even have replacements let along an improved fix available to provide.

Does anyone find it odd that if you go to a Peloton store you cannot buy anything there? No shoes, no cleats, no accessories. Nothing. Weird huh?

Hi everyone! I was recently looking for a way to celebrate my century ride. I came across these milestone stickers sold on Etsy that you stick onto your bike. I ordered from a shop called Dezalexa and I love the stickers. I jsut thought I would share in case anyone is in the same position that I was in and is looking for a way to celebrate thier huge accomplishments
Here is the link to where I purchased from:

Yes, I do find that weird. The accessories are nice but expensive so I'm sure the profit margin on them is very healthy. Seems like a no-brainer that they would sell accessories at the retail stores.
