With folks not being able to go to their gyms for the past year, many embraced the Peloton craze, but apparently, those in-home virtual spin classes aren’t made for everyone, and that’s not just because of the high price tag.
Comedian Pamela Rae Schuller tried to buy one of the Peloton bikes only to find out that since her height was only four-foot-six she didn’t reach their minimum height requirement is four-feet-11 inches.
Schuller said the company simply thanked her for “being an important part of Peloton” and wished her “the best of luck,” which didn’t sit well with her. She tweeted in response, “You are too short to use our product but thanks for being a part of our community. Even though you are not included.”
When asked about the height requirement, Peloton told the “New York Post” they are “committed to the research and development of new features that enhance accessibility to all of our products and platforms,” although they’ve been around since 2012 and still haven’t yet figured out how to accommodate shorter people.
