Resistance and Belt Tension Adjustments
RESISTANCE ADJUSTMENT: Resistance can be adjusted easily at any time while riding to change the intensity of workout. Turn the knob clockwise (+) to increase resistance. Turn the knob counterclockwise (-) to decrease resistance.
BELT TENSION ADJUSTMENT: The belt tension had been set before shipping. It should not need to be adjusted when first using. However, you may need to make the minor tension adjustment over time.
Note: Make sure you adjust both side equally, either tighten or loosen the belt tension so that the flywheel keep in alignment with the frame.
How to Tighten the Belt Tension
Move the crank arms back and forth. If there is more than 1/4” (0.64cm) movement in the crank before the flywheel starts turning, you will need to adjust the belt.
- Loosen the two-flanged nut(A) on either side of flywheel.
- Moving the flywheel forward by evenly tightening clockwise the 2 hex bolts(B), which go through the frame tube until there is approximately 1/4” (0.64cm) of slack in the belt.
- Re-tighten the two-flanged nut on either side of flywheel and then put back the safety cover.
Using the Emergency Brake
In case of emergency or before dismounting the indoor cycle, press down directly on the resistance knob to stop the flywheel and pedal.
