Buying or Selling a Used Peloton Bike or Peloton Bike+? Here’s What to Know

By Team PelotonApril 15, 2024


If you’re buying or selling a used Peloton Bike or Peloton Bike+, you probably have some questions: Where should you go to purchase or list a Bike or Bike+? If you’re a buyer, how do you know how old a bike is? And if you’re a seller, how can you demonstrate the information you’re sharing is accurate?

Of course, we always recommend purchasing products directly from us, either new or through our Peloton Certified Refurbished Program, or through one of our third-party partners, such as Amazon and Dick’s Sporting Goods. This ensures Peloton Members are equipped with the most up to date features. But if you come across a used Bike or Bike+ you’d like to buy (or you’re selling your own), we want you to have as much information as possible so you can feel good making a decision.

Whether you’re a brand new rider or a regular on the Leaderboard, here’s what you need to know before buying or selling a used Bike or Bike+.

How Do I Buy or Sell a Used Peloton Bike or Peloton Bike+?

While we do not endorse any particular buying platform (or help with the process), you can find used Peloton bikes on online marketplaces like Facebook Marketplace, friends and family, and other online communities. If you want to get the most out of a used Peloton Bike or Peloton Bike+, there are a few things to keep in mind.

Buying a Used Peloton Bike or Peloton Bike+

You’re most likely to find secondhand Peloton Bike or Peloton Bike+ listings for sale in online communities, but you might also hear about a used Bike or Bike+ for sale from someone you know.

The reality is that not all sellers provide the same amount of details about their bike’s history. Our advice? Gather as much information about the equipment as possible before buying it, ask the seller to see the bike in person, and even request doing a test ride. 

We’ve also launched a resource called the Peloton History Summary, which is a report on a specific piece of equipment, to help buyers research a purchase in advance. With just a Bike or Bike+’s serial number, the following information becomes available, along with other details, in the Peloton History Summary:

  • Date of first activation*

  • Number of Peloton workouts*

  • Service visit history*

  • Number of total owners*

  • Protection Plan transferability/expiration date*

*For more details on the Peloton History Summary, including the metrics referenced above, see here.

If you want confidence that you’re getting a used Bike or Bike+ that’s up to Peloton’s standards, we recommend exploring the Peloton Refurbished Program. Wondering how these pre-owned bikes differ from the ones you see people selling online? Peloton has put them through a comprehensive refurbishment process to make sure that any Bike or Bike+ that shows up at your door is as good as new.

Selling a Used Peloton Bike or Peloton Bike+

If you’re selling your Peloton Bike or Peloton Bike+ (maybe you just aren’t riding as much anymore, or maybe you’re moving and don’t have space to bring it with you), you can look for buyers on the secondary market. Members have previously listed their Bike or Bike+ on Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, the Unofficial “Buy Sell Trade” Facebook Group—or they tap into their networks and advertise by word of mouth. 

Include as much information as possible in your listing (photos, delivery options, etc.) and follow these steps to factory reset your equipment, to ensure that all of your personal information is cleared from the Peloton equipment prior to selling. If nothing else, consider sharing the Bike or Bike+’s Peloton History Summary so buyers can easily access it, increasing transparency and giving them a more holistic understanding of the product. 

You and the buyer are responsible for handling the details of the sale and delivery yourself.

How to Get a Peloton History Summary for a Used Bike or Bike+

Buyers and sellers can generate a Peloton History Summary for a used Peloton Bike or Peloton Bike+ in a matter of seconds, providing additional information for the transaction. Here’s how both parties can create a report from the Peloton website. 

  1. Navigate to the History Summary page on Peloton’s website.

  2. Enter the Bike or Bike+ serial number, add your contact email, and indicate whether you’re interested in buying or selling. If you are a buyer, we recommend asking for the seller to provide the product’s serial number.

  3. View the Peloton History Summary in a separate tab. You can download and save the summary from there.

The Takeaway

The secondary market is an option for those looking to buy a less expensive Peloton Bike or Peloton Bike+ (and for those hoping to sell their equipment). However, Peloton prides itself on providing a top-notch Member experience—no matter where someone purchased their bike—so if you decide on buying a used Bike or Bike+ on the secondary market, make sure you do proper research to get the best value and highest quality product possible. With the Peloton History Summary, shoppers can make more informed purchase decisions, and sellers can succinctly share relevant details about their bike. It’s a win-win for both parties.

Note: Peloton isn’t affiliated with or responsible for secondhand sales by private parties. Peloton does not endorse any particular secondary-market buying platform (or help with the process). Please beware of fraud or scam attempts on online marketplaces and be sure to understand and follow their selling guidelines and terms of use. Please do not post listings on our Official Peloton Rider Page on Facebook or use our photos or other marketing assets in your listings.

Also remember that by sharing your Peloton History Summary with your listing (which includes your Bike’s serial number), you will be sharing this information with anyone who views this listing. If you are not comfortable with this, you should share your report directly with interested buyers.
