If you’re affected by the recall, the replacement post is your only option. You don’t have to drag that heavy bike into your SUV to return it to Dick’s Sporting Goods or anything. But that also means that there aren’t any refunds available to you with this recall — unless you just bought your Bike.

Peloton’s regular product return policy still applies with the recall. So, if you received your Peloton Bike within the last 30 days and meet the return criteria, you can request a return and potentially get a refund. The same goes for those currently doing a 30-day Home Trial — if you’re still within that trial period, you can also request a return.
