You’re considering purchasing a Peloton Original bike trainer, but you’re looking for more details. In this video you’ll learn more about it’s mass based on my comedic yet serious reaction while learning the basic setup of the bike, connecting the bike to the internet and creating a Peloton account. Please note that the Peloton Original rider max weight according to the specifications is 297 pounds. Although I far exceed this weight capacity, I’m still using the bike. Therefore, it may fail and if it does I’ll report back here.
My above video was first released on amazon to help consumers decide if a Peloton bike is right for them and it is titled Ride with friends in the comfort of your home I then wrote this article to further help out all of you with getting to know Peloton and their products even more so you can make the right choice if you are on the fence about buying a Peloton Bike.
I uploaded my original video above to other social media outlets with different titles linked below for your ease of use.

Moving the Peloton Original alone is not ideal because the bike is extremely heavy. I was able to drag it up my stairs as you can see in this video but it was a risky maneuver doing this alone.

This video may help answer some questions you may have prior to your purchase, however, when setting up the bike it is recommended that you read the manual and the errata sheet. My learning style I prefer to read a user guide while consulting a video at the same time. For example, me and Ikea furniture have a love hate relationship. Things would be so much better if a video were to be provided with the assembly. Use care when removing components from their boxes, especially with the display. It is recommended to keep the display in its box until you are ready to mount it. One thing that may save you time regarding the assembly of the display to the mount, is that the screws to attach the display to the mount are within the display package (it is a small package).
Installation of the Feet
If you have a solid floor surface, like tile or wood, you may want to place a moving blanking under the bike. A moving blanket will provide some additional padding in case you drop something. And it will also help when you have to lay the bike on its side to assemble the feet. It is best to have another set of hands holding the bike while you attach the feet to the base of the bike. After you secure the base, adjust the feet so they are out a little. Also, by do this it will make it easier after you turn the bike upright again.
There are two components of the handlebars that you need to assemble prior to installing it on the frame: Hold the handle bar support onto the the handbars support mount while securing the screws. Once this is secure you can attach the handlebar assembly to the bike frame.
The pedals have two different direction threads, therefore you want to install the correct pedal to the correct side. Once installed, you can use the attached wrench to secure the pedals.
