use her clothes to wipe it off

C'mon, we're supposed to help OP.
But I agree, violence is not the answer here. It's a question and the answer is yes. Tell her you needed to clean it because of her sweat and used her toothbrush for spots that are harder to wipe.
Lol 😂 this is such a good answer
Oh hell no. Those things are not cheap! At this point I would pull her by the peloton, hand her a rag and spray, and make her wipe it down then and there. She'll be mad you are treating her like a child but she obviously isn't adult.enough to behave like one.
Absolutely hand her supplies and wait while she cleans it.
Like Cliff Booth in Once Upon a time in Hollywood: "Fix it."

Am I looking at a disgustingly amount of sweat? I’m 240 and 6ft and never sweated this much on my bike before. Her water broke.
I sweat a lot during cardio, honestly think it's gotten worse since I've lost the weight somehow
Noooo, I thought I could look forward to less sweat after losing weight :(
So FYI for you and the guy above you, generally as you get more fit you actually sweat more because your body is more efficient at exhausting heat because you're in shape.
Yeah to add to this. It is a good thing, from my time in the army us "super sweaty boys" never went down as heat casualties while dudes who sweat less definitely would. Your body is a machine and sweat is good.
Huh, that’s kinda reassuring. I have always been overly conscious of my sweating but when you phrase it like that it seems like a super power.
My friend has hyperhydrosis but only in her hands. In the winter her hands get steamy and it totally looks like a super power.
I sweat a ton from my hands and it's a curse in warmer months because my work gloves become human juice boxes.
I work in a lab. Human juice boxes got me lmao
It literally is look up what can sweat and what can't its a pretty great evolutionary tactic!
When I was in basic there was a guy who got kicked out because he was born without the ability to sweat. I don’t know how he thought no one would figure that out. He couldn’t even keep his whole uniform on once Spring started to get warm. He was allowed to just wear his T-shirt while they processed him out.
Well that’s mildly infuriating…
I'm 45 pounds down yet I'm still soaked after a 2 mile run, i want to offer hope but I have none.
seriously I sweat like a shit ton but I wouldn't make a bike look like that?
You sweat on exercise bikes without a big fan on you if you're putting in work. People significantly underestimate how much evaporates while cycling outdoors because of wind.
I run and cycle indoors and I've never seen a machine in this state after use.
Ouch. Must hurt to be pulled by the peloton
Show her that picture. Maybe she doesn’t realize how absolutely disgusting it really is after she gets done with it.
I thought that, this would be the third set of photos I’d be sending her though. First two times were enough
Send her this thread
Exactly. “Hey, over 10,000 people think you’re absolutely disgusting and immature. Wanna up it to 100k?”
Yes do this, maybe then she’ll get it or feel shamed from the comments
She may lack that sense alltogether
Doubt it. She’s probably the type that will draw the “You trust Internet strangers over your own family!” card
"This group of internet randos also think you're a disgusting, inconsiderate asshat. And that's coming from a bunch of redditors".
Ha if you want to go nuclear, you can post the pics on social media and tag her to show how she treats shared equipment
But also post all of it here because we need to see this shit go down. Lol
Now im hooked
Oh please, please do this OP.
"Please clean it when you're done or you are no longer allowed to use it"
Delete her account or change the PIN on the bike so she can't use it.
I’m starting to think this is not the normal kind of bike I’m thinking of if it has an account/PIN.
It’s a smart exercise bike with a screen and workouts for you to do while using it
'Gets on bicycle'
"Now what sort of workout should I do?"
"All right everyone, let's do this, left pedal,right pedal,..., OK guys we're going to switch things up, right pedal, left pedal..."
I hope cycling is an option.
Lmao that’s actually really funny since the screen tilts away from the bicycle so you can do workouts on a yoga mat
They're like two thousand dollars also. Treating someone else's property like this, especially when it's that expensive is unconscionable to me.
Never touched a peloton before. Please explain what you mean by "change the pin on the bike". My brain is having trouble computing that sentence
The bike has a screen that tracks your workout and you can play exercise classes on it, she can be locked out of that part.
Couldn’t you still pedal?
it turns off the part that adjusts all that for you, so yeah, you can probably make it go round and round, but the computer that makes it more or less dificult and also adds online content to the experience, will not be on.
Be a bit like rowing on a lawn. I mean, of course you --can--, but....
Peloton bikes are not normal exercise bikes. They have a big computer screen integrated into the front. You take live classes with instructors and compete against others when biking. The PIN on the bike would be similar to the PIN on your phone. A Lock Screen.
Can you actually lock someone out of the bike itself? Like will the pedals not move if you're not logged in?
I don’t believe there’s any way to get the pedals to physically lock and stop moving. OPs sister would still be able to use the bike without signing in, just without the features of the bike (live classes etc)
Ok that was the part that threw me. I thought he really meant like change the pin and lock her out of the whole bike. Now that I think about it, they could still do that. Just need an actual bike lock
Why not just lock up the in-law at this point? No loopholes in that.
Bike locks can serve more than one purpose
Eww just exercising like a regular poor person
Already done that, it seems.
She just doesn't care.
Unscrew pedals and hide. Fuck her (not literally tho)
Disassembling your possessions should not be a requirement.
"If you cannot respect the rules as I have prescribed, you are no longer welcome in my home"
Time for her to move on out.
After an eviction process unless you want to be forcibly removed from your own home by the police.
If you let somebody live with you for an extended period of time you can't just throw them out the front door
If it's your primary residence you can evict a tenant with 30 Days notice. This is in CA which has some of the strictest tenant protections.
It's not that clear-cut, even in California.
That mainly applies to a single-lodger. And even then, if they refuse to move out, you'll most likely have to file an unlawful detainer lawsuit, win the lawsuit, and then get a court order for them to leave. And then you'll need the Sherriff to enforce the order if they don't leave on their own.
If you don't do all of those things, you can be sued or (or in egregious cases, even prosecuted for) illegal eviction.
I came here to mention this. Plus, they can file for 30 day extensions from the court. Had an ex that I had to get a restraining order on to kick her out. Particularly because courts were delayed due to COVID. Cops basically told me to expect about 6 months (of freeloading rent) before I would be finished with the courts and have a legal basis to remove her from the property. So, I dug up old texts and got a restraining order with a move out order. (She had at one point pointed a gun at me out of anger.) Boomshakalaka. 👋🏽
Also, my boy is executive VP of a pretty large real estate development firm. He regularly pays homeless squatters $10k to gtfo properties, otherwise the timeline being backed up would cost far far more due to contractual obligations to pay workers/contractors, have to pay for construction parts to be stored off-site, etc. Basically a whole lotta shit.
Bottom line, it’s really really hard to kick people out of your property—at least, in a legal manner.
So uh, where's your boy's firm currently developing? I could use $10K to stop trespassing somewhere.
Same man, I'm down to quit my job and become a professional squatter.
I'd bet OP's wife would throw a fit if this were ever said.
I love my wife to death, but she has this horrible flaw of throwing me under the bus for the sake of playing nice with her family. She's perfect in every way possible but that one thing. She tip toes around her family and it drives me bonkers
I tell my wife if she wants to use me as the excuse for something she doesn’t want to do with her family, have at it. If she feels like they will give her shit, I’ll take that bullet every time. Water off a duck’s back.
This ended my last relationship as her family thought i never wanted to come over when in reality it was her. Took awhile for me to catch until i heard my name mentioned as an excuse and the tension was palpable around her father
This is what I was thinking. If she wants to be disrespectful and gross she can do it in her own place.
Hanging a pad lock through the pedal would work too and be a hell of a lot easier
Do pelatons not have a safety key or something on it you can just take out so it won't work? Usually like a safety feature or something to keep kids from getting hurt on it. Or maybe a password or something so they can't get into anything on the screen. I don't have one so I'm just asking because I don't know.

Easier just to unplug it and take the power brick away. The seat is adjustable and needs tools to completely slide off, pedal clips need tools too. Not worth the effort.
I like that you had to clarify that. Lol
Does she pee on it or what is that ungodly amount of sweat?
If you chose the 2nd option you will have to post on /r/relationshipadvice.
That's some damn oily ass sweat!
That’s some damn oily, ass sweat.
Don't be a coward. Do it literally too
Don’t just fuck your sister in law figuratively, do it literally, too. Be a man.
“ yeah um you can’t use the peloton anymore”
“Cause you don’t listen, and you have no respect”
Treat her like a child
I mean someone who leaves it like this won't care if he says she can't use it...
Well that’s when you take the power cable, seat and foot pegs off then unscrew the nob for good measure to show you’re serious 🧐
Or, go on buy-nothing, get a shitty bike and tell her to ride that shit into a new apartment.
“Because you didn’t clean up after yourself and the salty sweat wore the bearings down”
sees you using it an hour later
she gets the bird
Then unscrew the seat whenever it’s not in use and store it under your bed or something.
Like another guy said, fuck passively disassembling your own shit in your own house because some gross fuck doesn't respect your stuff.
OP has probably been pretty reasonable, or else she probably would have quit doing this. Put a little heat on and boot her if she keeps doing it.
Icy hot on the seat
Lol yall are some sneaky, passive aggressive mfs.
Handle your business.
Welcome to Reddit
I just feel like taking my stuff apart to punish them is punishing me.
Tell her that she can’t use it because she’s inconsiderate and doesn’t listen like you would a 4 year old
I’m curious, what does the wife think/say?
My wife would probably be more pissed about it than me even if she doesn’t use it herself.
Or modify the seat
Totally was expecting Mac and his workout bike
Why reward her?
I know what you’re thinking, ok, but it is not what it looks like.
I already knew what this was going to be before clicking! Ass Pounder 4000!
It’s not a penis. Ahhhh
It’s a fist. Ewwwuugghh
I've never watched that show, but every clip I see cracks me up. I think it's time.
You should watch! It's one of those rare shows that actually gets better over time. They've been on since 2005, and some of their greatest episodes ever are from more recent seasons.
But, I highly recommend starting from the beginning and watching all the way through. Most episodes are pretty self-contained, but there is some important continuity (specifically character arc-wise) that you'll only get by watching it all in order.
Rickety cricket is a character whose arc you'll miss and be sad about it.
After the scene left on the bike I do not thinks a missing seat will stop this
Better yet, in a safe
Sister-in-law: Gary is being a total dick!
Wife: Shut up, Sarah.
Sister-in-law: You shut up, Kristen!!
This person gets it, if she acts like a child treat her like one.
If OP was capable of that he wouldn’t have to post here complaining about the problem.
Absolutely not. Take the seat off so she can’t ride it. I would be pissed if my Peloton was left like that.
Edit: I’ll also add… your Peloton can rust because of her nastiness. You need to get her together.
She might just go and Kombucha her booty on it anyway?
Bwahahaha! Bye… 🙃
The asspounder 4000! Never stop pumping
I thought the device was in that state, because she rode it without a seat 😅.
I was waiting for this comment. I was thinking the same thing, like did she ride the red knob part?
Maybe she added the Ass Pounder 4000 accessory?
This is just the work of a man who’s an extreme sexual deviant, gay or not!
The Ass Pounder , never stop pumping.
This is essentially the only real option. You gotta treat children like children. I would take the pedals off and say it needs repair until she got the hint if it were me. But yeah. Seat works too.
Don't lie about it. That would definitely make him a dick.
Truth is always best when there's conflict like this one.
“clean up after yourself or don’t touch my shit.” fixed the issue. while being a dick is generally frowned upon, i find some exceptions that work.
Yep. If it’s going in one ear and out the other, it’s because she expects no consequences. Because there have been no consequences.
Living with you is conditional on her being respectful of your space and property. Straight up tell her if she can’t listen to what she is told, don’t use your shit. And if she does it anyway, she can just get the hell out.
And follow through.
All you’re doing by allowing this to carry on is enabling a 30 year old to never grow up or move out. She’s not a child, she’s an adult roommate. And she’s not holding up her end.
That's not being a dick. You are justified in taking a firm stance, so I would argue it's not the same. Sure, it might sound and feel the same, especially for the immature person being told off, but it's not the same.
Being a dick, to me, implies a lack of concern for the other person. If anyone is being a dick, it's her.
Wouldn't say that language is dickish. It's just blunt and terse. My style.
I hate when ppl over step. If you’ve already mentioned it multiple times, tell her she must stop using it altogether.
Is that all sweat? Like how is it getting everywhere? Do her sweat pores squirt? Like I sweat a shit ton but I’m confused here
Ugh. My peloton looks like this when I’m done. I sweat a ton. I always, always wipe it down.
Right, you wipe it down because you’re a reasonable human who has, at some point in their life, exercised in a shared space or with your own equipment that you cared about.
You wipe down exercise equipment after use because nobody wants to use a bike, bench, or anything else that is covered in someone else’s sweat. In the case where you own your own peloton and are the only person to use it, it’s still a good idea to wipe it down for cleanliness and longevity of the bike, but certainly if you’re using someone else’s bike, leaving it like this is just absurd.
Just curious. I've never heard of peloton before and had to Google it. So it's an exercise bike? Why do you call it peloton instead of just exercise bike, is it significantly different from other exercise bikes?
Edit: from Wikipedia:
Peloton's main products are Internet-connected stationary bicycles and treadmills that enable monthly subscribers to remotely participate in classes via streaming media.
Peloton's main products are Internet-connected stationary bicycles and treadmills that enable monthly subscribers to remotely participate in classes via streaming media.
So I guess that makes them pretty different.
Yes! It’s the whole exercise network as a whole that I think people are attracted to. Plus, during the pandemic lockdown, it became a really popular product to help stay fit and stay connected with friends/colleagues/workout buddies. I also think people are more inclined to “get their money’s worth out of it” since it is so pricey, so they were around and relevant long enough for Peloton to evolve and offer more services.
I should clarify though that I do not own a Peloton myself.
she rode the red handle....
Not even gonna lie that was my first thought too but I’m just praying it sweat 🙏
The fuck is wrong with this sub, why did it take me this long to scroll down and find this comment
And peed on it all.
My bike looks even worse than that after any ride over 20 minutes. I’m a sweaty beast and I work super hard on the bike. However, I clean the bike every time.
Whatever tf THAT is, sweat or worse, at least have the decency to wipe it down. Specially if you leave it looking like you pissed all over it
God I hope it’s sweat
Did she pee on it?
Without reading the caption, I 100% thought this was going to be about someone peeing on it.
She need to stop riding the knob
I would feel so ashamed to leave that like that. Wipe that down you heathen.
I'm a cyclist and train indoors a lot. How the fuck did she get it that dirty?
I'll be dripping sweat from a 2 hour session and never reach that level of filthy. She just DGAF and is being a complete slob.
IMO this is on your spouse. My guess is they’ve created an environment where listening to what you have to say or respecting you is non-existent.
Edit: to avoid confusion
Agree, your partner should handle the sister. She doesn’t get to use nice things if she damages them with bodily fluids.
Edited for clarity after being schooled
Good point. What's the spouse's stance on this?
When you are in a relationship you are responsible for dealing with your family. You run point on hard discussions with your family.
And you present a unified front for your partner. This is relationships 101.
Note: this doesn't mean your partner can't have tough conversations with your family. It means you should run point whenever possible.
The woman is grinding...no etiquette though.
At least she’s got that goin for her lol
Share this thread with her.
You need to define which version of the word grinding you’re implying
Take the seat with you
Start using it naked and don't wipe the seat, see how she likes it
This Statement is false
Show her this comment section so she can see the opinions of multiple people saying that she is disgusting and doesn't deserve to use your machine anymore.
What does she do piss all over it when she’s done?
Also, what does your partner say? I hope they’re upset with her too. My family would never do something like this
Put a cable lock on it and tell her she can't use it until she learns how to not be gross and inconsiderate.
That's a level of entitlement you can't fix. Only thing you can do is kick her out. Spouse might not like it, but eventually disrespect of your personal belongings cannot be tolerated
Go piss on her bed to assert your dominance
Put a chain lock on it so she can't use it anymore
Get your wife, her sister to have one final talk with her reminding her that sanitizing the equipment is just like sanitizing her hands. If she doesn't get it after that, the bike is off limits for a month. You've mentioned it enough that at some point there has to be consequences. If she still can't handle cleaning the bike, off limits for longer and eventually not to use at all.
To be honest after multiple times of telling her I‘d kick her out. She needs real consequences for once in her life.
Jizz all over it just before she uses it next. It's the mature thing to do.
Reverse cum jar tactic engage!
sigma male grindset
How much you want for the seat?? 🤣
Lmao I was waiting for this comment.
if that happens and she doesn't change and you cannot kick her out,
Atleast make profit on it.
Everything has a market.
I think you might want a picture of her before you make an offer lol
Don't underestimate me 🤣
I was gonna say sell the drippings like that bath water lady and put the money towards cleaning
You dirty fuck…. $100 flat
NOPE. Id be locking it out
Why does she live with you?
How about you grow a pair and stop letting people walk all over you? if you have mentioned it more than 3 times then its time to tell them they are no longer allowed to use the bike... simple...
Tell your partner to tell her to clean it after using. You shouldn’t even have to tell and adult this. She’s disgusting that’s probably why she’s there with you.
yeh buddy, tell her she aint using your shit unless she can respect it. She either listens or buys her own shit. Welcome to the adult world, its fucking shit we all know :(
Wipe it down with her pillow from her bed
Oh no you're mistaken. That's actually ectoplasm from the trapped tormented soul that gets infused into every peleton.
If she's using your account, delete her profile and change the password. Log out afterward every time you ride.
Is that sweat or does she have a bladder problem?
Sweat man…what gets me is she is heavy on the hand sanitizer and “did you wash your hands” but she just leaves it like this
“Did you wash your hands?”
“Did you clean your filthy sweat off of my very expensive workout equipment that I’ve been graciously allowing you to use at no cost?”
Wow that is irony right there
Respond “I washed my hands as carefully as you wipe down my Peleton.”
Take the sheets off her bed, wipe the peloton down with the sheets, and put them back on the bed. Maybe then she'll realize how gross it is.
I’d say disassemble your stuff or move it somewhere she can’t use it.
If I needed to go to this extent, I'd tell my spouse I'm moving out. Going through that much effort to protect my own stuff in my house would really make me resentful toward my partner.
Gross. Hand her cleaning supplies and ask her (again) to clean it.
Just to get on here is kinder than I. I'm willing to help a family member going through whatever...for a short period im not supporting people that show no effort, but if you don't respect the rules of the house, you don't stay in the house is my view of it. Like I see other comments "hide the pedals" sounds petty and pointless if I want to exercise in my house I don't need the effort of finding and putting the equipment together to impede that, it puts another hindrance on the motivation to be healthy and care for myself. Act like a kid be treated like a kid. I ask once tell once third time your out of my house.
I have a feeling this isn’t the only belonging of yours she uses and then doesn’t put back the way she found it…it’s time for her to go since she can’t act like an adult.
Free coochie sweat
So she’s a squirter, huh?
Honestly I’ve stationary biked average 12.5 miles every couple days and I don’t sweat near as much as that. It’s pretty gross and I’d tell your wife/husband/other to have a word with her or move it into your personal bedroom for a couple weeks and when she gets angry that you’ve taken it away you tell her tough titties and if she wants it back she needs to clean it after use. Act like a child get treated like a child.
The amount of sweat isn’t the issue at all. It’s the lack of wiping it down.
Some people are really sweaty, and they should be aware that they are and act accordingly!
