I’m hoping someone here has experienced something similar and can help solve the problem. I’ve had my Peloton for about a year now. I noticed, at the beginning of the summer, the resisitance on the bike felt heavier than what was displayed on the screen. I then began to notice my output continue to drop now to the point where I’m usually around 70-90 watts off my average 30 min ride and 100+ off my 45 min average, which is a lot. At first I thought it was me but have since used my family members bikes on multiple occasions and have been at or above ride averages. I recalibrated the bike multiple times, I had a Peloton technician replace the belt and sensors but it still feels off. Had any one else experienced this?

If you've recalibrated and properly followed the instructions, replaced the belt and sensors then it's likely where it's supposed to be. I've found that my output seems to have dropped over the years and I attribute it to the fact that Peloton changed the algorithm at least twice in the past 4 years which caused everyone's output to drop. They admitted it only once, but I know they did it a 2nd time and we couldn't get them to fess up. With that said, when you recalibrated, did you do a factory wipe afterwards? They used to recommend clearing the cache but no longer do. I would first start by recalibrating and then doing a factory wipe immediately afterwards. Do not ride it until the factory wipe. (Assuming you have all 3 white pieces). If that doesn't fix it, you can hack the correction. I'll tell you how if interested. Best of luck Matt.
