How to Unclip Peloton Toe Cages
Are you stuck in the toe cages after an extraordinary Peloton session and wondering how to unclip safely?
For the Peloton brand toe cages, the toe clips attach to the Peloton pedals the same way that the shoe cleats do. Ooh, yes, the toe cages actually have cleats at the bottom.
Let’s get onto the process of unclipping the toe cages from the bike;
- Firstly, Kick your heel outwards from the pedal with some force. You should hear a pop sound, which means that you unclipped successfully.
- If hard to unclip then Loosen the Peloton Pedals Tension screws using the 3-millimeter Allen key included with your Bike.
How Do You Loosen the Peloton Pedals Tension screws?
The Peloton pedal tension is adjustable from the bottom of the pedal. It is visible as a stand-alone bolt at the edge of the pedal cover plate.
So, use a 3mm Allen Key to turn the tension bolt counterclockwise. This will get the tension loose.
There are two types of Peloton toe cages attach directly to the bike pedals. One attaches on the top platform, where the peloton shoe cleats clip in, while the other attaches at the opposite side of the cleat platform, encouraging dual function.
While the removal of the two types of toe clips differs, all you need is a process for your type of toe cage. And, within a few minutes, you should ride on a toe cage-free Peloton bike.
