A pivotal moment next week for at-home fitness provider Peloton Interactive Inc. could conjure up memories of last year’s releases of newly-issued stock by technology companies -- moves that rattled investors and led to heightened volatility for Lyft Inc. and Uber Technologies Inc.

Come Monday, some 90% of Peloton’s shares outstanding will be freed up, opening the first window for insiders and early investors to sell since the company’s September initial public offering. This particular lock-up -- similar to Lyft’s -- expires short of the traditional 180-day lock-up period that most companies follow.
