Unfortunately, buying a big piece of hardware also means setting it up.</p><p>Every Peloton bike purchase includes delivery and setup, but pandemic restrictions might prevent delivery agents from entering your home. In this case, you'll need to complete the setup process yourself. Thankfully, doing so is straightforward.</p><aside class="quick-tip headline-regular"><p><strong>Note:</strong> <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/how-to-contact-peloton-customer-service" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Peloton offers telephone support</a> for users who have trouble setting up their bikes or run into other issues during this process. In the US, Peloton Support can be reached at 866-440-7445.</p></aside><h2>How to set up your Peloton Bike</h2><p>Given that the bike weighs 135 pounds, Peloton recommends that two adults move it. The bike has two wheels on the front stabilizers to make this process easier, but care should be taken when transporting it. If you're moving the bike up or down stairs, the company also recommends you disconnect the touchscreen.&nbsp;</p><p><img src="https://static1.businessinsider.com/image/6090566834af8d001859aa2c-1512/How to set up your Peloton 1.JPG" border="0" alt="How to set up your Peloton 1.JPG" data-mce-source="Jennifer Still/Insider" data-mce-caption="Peloton bikes are fairly large and heavy so be careful when moving it."></p><h3>How to disconnect and reattach your Peloton touchscreen</h3><p>To disconnect your touchscreen, you should unplug the monitor cable and remove the square panel on the back of the screen. Then, using a Phillips-head screwdriver, remove the screws on the back of the touchscreen. Ensure someone is holding the screen during this process so that it doesn't fall.&nbsp;</p><p><img src="https://static1.businessinsider.com/image/6090577534af8d001859aa34-1512/How to set up your Peloton 2.jpg" border="0" alt="How to set up your Peloton 2" data-mce-source="Jennifer Still/Insider" data-mce-caption="Unplug the cables, remove the panel, and unscrew the screws."></p><p>To reattach the screen, line your touchscreen up with the monitor mount and using the same screwdriver, reattach the provided screws before replacing the square panel. Finally, plug in your monitor cables and you're good to go.&nbsp;</p><p><img src="https://static1.businessinsider.com/image/609057dcf22c6b00185db56e-1512/How to set up your Peloton 3.jpg" border="0" alt="How to set up your Peloton 3" data-mce-source="Jennifer Still/Insider" data-mce-caption="After replacing the screws, plug your cables back in."></p><h3>How to stabilize your bike&nbsp;</h3><p>Your bike should be stabilized on the floor at all times to prevent tipping or rocking during workouts. To do this, turn the outer feet located on the front and rear stabilizers in a counterclockwise direction until they're all firmly on the ground. To test that your bike is stabilized, you can try to move the bike back and forth to ensure it doesn't rock.</p><h3>How to power on your bike</h3><p>Connect the power cord into the power jack located on the back of your bike, just above the rear stabilizer.</p><p><img src="https://static2.businessinsider.com/image/6090587834af8d001859aa41-1512/How to set up your Peloton 4.jpg" border="0" alt="How to set up your Peloton 4" data-mce-source="Jennifer Still/Insider" data-mce-caption="Plug in the power cord at the base of the bike."></p><p>Then, plug the power supply into the wall and look for the LED light to turn green, indicating it's connected correctly. Then turn on your bike by pressing the power button at the back of the touchscreen.&nbsp;</p><h3>How to connect your bike to Wi-Fi</h3><p>All Peloton bikes require an active Wi-Fi connection to <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/login-to-peloton" target="_blank" rel="noopener">sign in and access the live and on-demand classes</a>. Once you've turned on your Peloton bike for the first time, you'll be prompted to connect to Wi-Fi. To do so, select your Wi-Fi network and enter the network password. You'll only need to complete this process oncemoving forward, your Peloton will automatically connect to this network.</p><p>If you change internet providers, get a new router, or simply want to connect to a new Wi-Fi network, you can change this information on your Peloton's screen. Tap the Wi-Fi network symbol in the top-right corner of the screen, and select your new network.&nbsp;</p><h3>How to activate your Peloton account&nbsp;</h3><p>When you purchase your Peloton, you're provided with an Activation Key.
