How To Move Peloton Bike Easily
How To Move Peloton Bike To A Different Room
Many Peloton bike riders have enjoyed setting up at home and enjoying using the equipment. There does however come a time when people need to move. This could be either moving to a new home or switching the rooms.
This isn’t a problem if you have a home with more than one space to work out in. If not, the only way to move is by disassembling the whole machine and reassembling it somewhere else.
Other Options To Consider
Here are some other options that you can consider instead of moving the Peloton Bike from your current location:
Use Peloton Digital– This allows you to stream classes from any device. There is not live class option but there is a TON of content available on demand after watching instructors for each ride! The cost per month is additional but can save having to swap rooms.
Purchase a second Peloton Bike– I know this requires an investment of $2000+ but if you love cycling and want another bike in your home, this is an option.
Purchasing a Third Party Bike– There are some great options that are priced right where you can purchase one for less than half of what the Peloton is priced at. I have done hours of research and hope to make a blog post on my top three choices in the coming weeks! This allows you to keep your current Peloton without needing to move it or reassemble.
Moving Your Peloton Bike – What You Need to Know
If you need to move your Peloton bike, here is what you’ll need:
-A friend or two helpers who can make the transfer with you. They will help reassemble in the new location. Unless they are strong cyclists, I would recommend having someone experienced helping out just in case any of the pieces don’t fit together well when attempting. I have helped friends before and it’s not fun swearing at a $2000+ piece of equipment trying to get it into place!
-Garmin remote control for metrics readouts- It is helpful if you want to keep track of your RPMs while moving the bike from room to room. You can use a phone instead but it is more difficult to operate while attempting to reassemble.
-A Philips screwdriver and Allen wrench for assembling/dissembling. They come in the Peloton box with all of the tools required. The most challenging part about this process is having everything available, without them, you will be stuck on your indoor trainer trying to figure out how to take it apart!
-Slip resistant pads: If you plan on moving your Peloton Bike often or down any type of carpeted stairs, I would recommend purchasing slip resistant pads similar to these. If not, they are great for protecting floors during workouts!
-A large vehicle capable of fitting the Peloton box in it! Small sedans or SUVs may be able to get it into your car but just barely depending on how big of a trunk space/back seat space they have available.
To put it simply – It is possible but it requires some know-how and patience! If not, there are other options that can help allow you to keep riding at your current location without needing to move it or reassemble in a new room.
