How To Assemble Peloton Shoes And Crampons?
Before beginning assembling, it is important to understand how to install cleats on peloton shoes. It is very simple to attach crampons to peloton shoes. You will need to adjust the cleats to your shoes. Here’s how to:
- Wear your shoes and use a marker to mark out the sole of your foot. A pencil may be helpful too. This is necessary to fit the midpoint of the cleat across your foot.
- Match up the three screw holes and place the cleats on the bottom of your peloton shoe.
- Place each puck in the appropriate place on the cleat.
- Place the screws in the holes. However, do not screw them right away.
- Make sure your cleats are facing forward so they line up with where you will place your toe. The cleats should be placed on the line from heel to toe.
- Use a 4mm hex wrench to fasten the screws until they are firm.
- Repeat the above steps with your second shoe.
- To check alignment, start pedaling. If the pressure is directed towards the axis of the pedal, everything will be fine.
- If it’s not convenient for you after some time, make sure you relax the screws. This could cause the pedal axle to move. Unclipping the cleats will be a tough one. You may likewise perceive a ringing in your ears. To solve the problem, tighten the screws more firmly.

It’s time to attach the clip. Keep the pedal at 6 o’clock. Now raise your foot slightly higher. Place your foot flat on the pedal with your toe pointing down.
Keep your feet down on the pedals and push your foot towards them until you hear a creak. This indicates that the cleats have been correctly clipped. To give it a better grip, you can either apply pressure or twist the clip.
Follow the same procedure for the second foot. It won’t be difficult because you have already done the same thing for the first foot and also because your second foot is in a balanced position. Position your foot on the pedal at 12 o’clock. The other foot should be at 6 o’clock. This is the best position to attach your peloton shoes to the pedals.
