Recumbent Operation & Adjustment

POWER

Your programmable recumbent bike is powered by a power supply. The power supply must be plugged into the power jack, which is located in the front of the machine near the front foot tube.

LEVELING

The recumbent bike should be level for optimum use. Once you have placed the recumbent bike where you intend to use it, raise or lower the adjustable leveler located under the rear portion of the side cover. Once you have leveled the recumbent bike, lock the levelers in place by tightening the wing nuts against the frame.
