Hello, I’m brand new to being a Peleton owner and did my first ride today. I noticed that my inner part right shoe was hitting the pedal every rotation. Is there a way to adjust the pedal to create more space in between the inner side of your shoe and the pedal?
Thanks!!

Welcome and congrats! If the issue is your shoe hitting the pedal you can try adjusting the tension/tightness. Here's a video on that shows how to do that.

If your shoe is actually hitting the frame you may want to try adjusting the placement of the cleat on your shoe so they're farther away from the bike. To do that loosen the screws that hold the cleat in, adjust the cleat and then tighten. Make sure the ball of your foot is over the center of the pedal and that your cleats are positioned the same on both feet.

Let us know if that does the trick!

Thank you so much for reaching out. I moved my cleat all of the way over and it still doesn’t seem to do it. I have very flat feet so that may be part of the issue. I tried to include a photo of what is going on. Not sure if anyone else has had this issue. My shoes are already scuffed from just one ride. Not sure what they will look like by 50+. Thank you again for your help here.
Other then this I’m loving the bike so far.

Hi and welcome! From the picture it looks like your shoe is actually hitting your crank (the arm attached to the pedal). Is that right or is the shoe actually hitting the pedal and making a clicking sound?

If the shoe is hitting the crank, I would suggest loosening the screws on the bottom and modifying the angle of your cleat on your shoe slightly so that your heel is pointed a bit more away from the bike while you're riding. There should be a bit of play when you loosen the screws. Then tighten when done and when you get an angle that works, make sure both cleats are attached at the same angle.

If the shoe is actually hitting the pedal, I agree the best bet is trying to tighten the tension screw on the pedal.

I actually use SPD clicks and pedals rather than those that come with the Peloton.

Good luck! Please let us know if that helps!
