SEAT ADJUSTMENT

Proper seat height helps ensure maximum exercise efficiency and comfort, while reducing the risk of injury. Adjust the seat height to make sure of this proper position:

• The knee joint is slightly flexed when the extended leg is at the bottom of the pedal stroke.

• Your foot ankle is over the center of the pedal.

To adjust the seat height:

Dismount the bike and release the quick release lever for the seat height adjustment. Once loosened, raise or lower the seat post as necessary. When the seat is in the desired position, re-applythe quick release lever to lock the position. Note the final position mark on the seat post for future use.

To adjust the seat horizontal position:

Dismount the bike and release the quick release lever under the seat and slide the seat forward or backward as desired. Re-applythe quick release lever to lock. Note the final position mark on the seat slider for future use.

HANDLEBAR ADJUSTMENT

Proper position for the handlebar is based primarily on comfort. The Indoor Cycle allows for fore and aft adjustment of the handlebar. Typically, the handlebar should be positioned slightly higher than the seat for beginning cyclists. Advanced cyclists could try different heights to get the arrangement most suitable for you.

To adjust the handlebar height:

Release the quick release lever for the handlebar height adjustment. Raise or lower the handlebar to the desired height, and then re-applythe quick release lever to lock. Note the final position mark on the handlebar stem for future use.

To adjust the handlebar horizontal position:

Loosen the quick release for the handlebar fore-and-afttension handle. Move the handlebar forward or back to the desired position, and thenre-applythe quick release lever to lock. Note the final position mark on the handlebar slider for future use.

PEDAL STRAP ADJUSTMENT

 

Place each foot on the pedal and in the toe clip so that the ankle is centered over the pedal spindle (center of the pedal). Rotate one

 

foot to arms reach and pull up on the toe clip strap. Repeat for the other foot. Keep your knees over your feet as you pedal. To remove

12

your foot from the toe clip, loosen the strap and pull out.

 

RESISTANCE ADJUSTMENT

The micro-adjustresistance knob is located just below the handlebars on the bike frame, for easier pedaling resistance control. Turn the knob in a clockwise direction to increase pedal resistance. Turn the knob in a counter clockwise direction to decrease pedal resistance.

DISMOUNTING THE CYCLE

WARNING

The Indoor Cycle uses a fixed flywheel that builds momentum and will keep the pedals turning even after the user stops pedaling or if the user’s feet slip off. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE YOUR FEET FROM THE PEDALS OR DISMOUNT THE MACHINE UNTIL BOTH THE PEDALS AND THE FLYWHEEL HAVE COMPLETELY STOPPED. Failure to follow these instructions may lead to loss of control and the potential for serious injury.

Use one of the following methods to stop the pedals:

Reduce your pedal speed until you come to a complete stop.

Push down on the brake knob to come to a complete stop.

Increase the resistance by turning the resistance knob in a clockwise position until you come to a complete stop.

MOVING THE CYCLE

Make sure the quick release levers for the handlebar are tight. Stand in front of the cycle, grasping the end of the handlebars. Place one foot on the cycle’s front support foot to stabilize the cycle and begin tilting the cycle toward you. The transport wheels should now be in contact with the ground and can easily roll in any direction. Be careful when moving the cycle to prevent a sudden impact that could harm the cycle or its surroundings.

STABILIZING THE CYCLE

The Indoor Cycle should operate on a level surface with no lateral movement. Check the cycle’s stability by attempting to rock it side to side. If the leveler is not resting completely on the floor, loosen the nut with one hand to allow the leveler to rotate. Repeat the front and rear foot adjustment as necessary until the Cycle is stable. Lock the adjustment by tightening the nut against the front and rear foot support.

13

MAINTENANCE

The safety level given by the design of the P8000 Indoor Cycle can only be maintained when the equipment is regularly examined for damage and wear. Inoperable components should be replaced or the equipment should be put out of use until it is repaired.

DAILY

Wipe down the Indoor Cycle after each use to remove sweat and moisture. Use soap and water, or a diluted non-abrasivedomestic cleaner solution. Rinse to remove detergent residue and then dry off.

Before each session, inspect for loose components such as pedals or cranks prior to commencing the next use. Tighten up any loose parts.

WEEKLY

Check for proper flywheel alignment. Torque flywheel nuts as necessary.

Remove chain guard and check for loose chain. Adjust and lubricate the chain as necessary.

Check to make sure the crank arms are tight to the bottom bracket.

Inspect all parts, nuts, bolts, or screws for adjustments, replacements or maintenance.

MONTHLY

• Inspect the frame and main assembly components for rust or corrosion. Tilt the cycle or place in an upside down position to locate areas where rust and corrosion may develop. Use a small, wire brush to remove rust build-upin small crevasses, such as leveling feet, quick release levers and other bolt assemblies.

• Inspect all wear items for adjustments or possible part replacement. Give particular attention to the following:

A) Inspect brake pad for wear. Excessive wear or dryness indicates replacement is required.

B) Inspect seat pad for wear. Rips, tears or excessive movement indicates replacement is required.

C) Inspect pedals for play. Excessive movement of pedals indicates replacement is required.

• Inspect the chain for tensioning by rotating the crank to drive the flywheel forward. Do this motion in 1/4 turns to assess if there is free play between the crank and the flywheel.

• Dryness or prolonged use may cause the height and reach adjustments for the seat and handlebar to become tight. If this is the case, the sliding assembly should be removed from the frame and have a smear of light duty grease applied along the sliding surface before assembly. Similarly, apply some light grease to the clamping assembly to ensure it does not seize up. Clean off

excessive grease before reassembly.
