The company has limited some in-home service due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and customers also reported struggling to fix their own bikes.The recalled pedals are out of warranty, and Peloton has offered to help customers repair their bikes over the phone. The company also "highly recommends" replacing pedals, which cost $60, annually.
