300 Series Operation & Comfort Tips
Proper adjustment of seat position and knowledge of pedaling cadence will allow effective use of your leg muscles
without producing undue muscular fatigue. Applying these proper techniques will allow you to ride comfortably and
efficiently. The 300 series products are biomechanically designed and are fully adjustable to optimize comfort.
1. Leg Extension: The seat should be positioned such that the leg is almost fully extended when the ball of the foot
is on the pedal and the pedal is in the position furthest from the body. This will allow for great use of more leg
muscles, thereby maximizing cardiovascular benefit while minimizing fatigue.
300U Seat Adjustment

300R Seat Adjustment
2. Foot Position: The ball of the foot should be on the pedal, directly over the pedal axle. This position allows you
to maximize the action of your calf muscles. Avoid pedaling with the arch of your foot on the pedal. If toe clips and
straps are attached to the pedals, use them to stabilize your foot on the pedals but do not use them if they place
your foot in an unnatural position.

Exercise Guidelines
Good health is an exercise in common sense.
Surgeon General releases a new study in 2001, The Surgeon General’s Call To Action To Prevent and Decrease Overweight
and Obesity. It indicates that there is 61% of American adults are either overweight or obese. Noting also that overweight
increases the risk of health problems, such as heart disease, certain type of cancer, type 2 diabetes, etc. It states that
overweight needs to be regarded primarily as Health rather than as Appearance issues.
Surgeon General’s Healthy weight advice for consumers is:
1. Aim for a healthy weight: Find your Body Mass Index (BMI) on the chart below.
2. Be active: Keep physically active to balance the calories you consume.
3. Eat well: Select sensible portion sizes.
BMI = (weight (pounds) / height (inches)
2
) x 703
17
Note: This chart is for adults (aged 20 years and older)
Heart rate is an important key to your exercise.
The Surgeon General also released a report on physical activity and health. This report definitively stated that exercise
and fitness are beneficial for a person’s health and redefined that exercise is a key component of disease prevention
and healthier living.
Medical research has shown us that there is an amount of exercise, which is enough to condition the cardio respiratory
system and the muscles of the body. This amount of exercise is between 60% and 85% of your maximum heart rate
measured during a training session. This range allows enough exercise to achieve fitness, but not an excessive amount
to cause injury. Your heart rate is an excellent indicator of the amount of stress placed on the cardiovascular system.
Taking full advantage of this information, the 600T is designed to include heart rate monitoring features.
3 0 0 S E R I E S O W N E R’ S M A N U A L
Exercise Guidelines continued
If exercise intensity is too low or too high, no gains will be made in fitness. If the intensity is too low, the stress levels are
ineffective. If the intensity is too high, injury or fatigue may set your exercise program back as you try to recover.
The best way to monitor exercise intensity is to accurately count your pulse during exercise. Your heart rate can easily
be determined by counting your pulse at the chest, wrist or at the carotid artery on your neck. It is difficult to count your
own pulse during exercise, mainly because you cannot count fast enough to get an accurate number. The 600T is
equipped with a wireless telemetry receiving system. What it does is automatically count your heart rate while you are
wearing a heart rate chest belt during your exercising period. Heart rate is monitored and electronically displayed as a
digital readout. Your target heart rate, the intensity needed to improve cardiovascular fitness, depends primarily on
your age and not your state of fitness. It is calculated as a percentage of your maximum heart rate, estimated as 220
minus your age. It is most effective to train at your target heart rate which is between 60% and 85% of your maximum
heart rate.
Maximum Heart Rate & Training Zone
To calculate your maximum heart rate and find your training zone, use the following formula. An example has been
provided below based on a 35-year –old person:
220 – Age = Maximum Heart Rate
(220 – 35 = 185)
60% of Maximum Heart Rate
(60% x 185 = 111 bpm)
85% of Maximum Heart Rate
(85% x 185 = 157 bpm)
Training Zone: 111 bpm – 157 bpm

Exercise Guidelines continued
Quantity & Quality
It is recommended that you accumulate at lease 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week. Physical activity
should be initiated slowly and the intensity should be increased gradually. You should select activities that you enjoy
and can fit into your daily life. Having Diamondback equipment at home certainly gives you the comfortable and convenient
workout you want.
The American College of Sports Medicine makes the following recommendations for the quantity and quality of training
for developing and maintaining cardiorespiratory fitness in healthy adults:
•
•
•
•
•
An activity that uses large muscle groups, maintained continuously, and is rhythmical and aerobic in nature.
Duration: 20 to 60 minutes of continuous aerobic activity, including a warm-up and cool-down period for each
exercise session.
Frequency: 3 to 5 times per week.
Intensity: 60% to 85% of maximum heart rate.
In addition to aerobic exercise, it is recommended that you add strength training of moderate intensity twice
per week to your program.
Get a smart start on exercising.
Anyone over the age of 35, as well as younger persons whom are overweight, should check with his/her physician
before beginning any type of exercise program. People who have diabetes or high blood pressure, a family history of
heart disease, high cholesterol or have lead a sedentary lifestyle should protect themselves with a medical check-up
and a stress test, preferably administered during exercise by a healthcare professional.
1. Always stretch before your workout to loosen muscles, and afterwards to cool down.
2. The first few minutes of your workout should be devoted to warming up muscles before a vigorous workout,
and building your heart rate slowly.
3. After your aerobic workout of about 24-32 minutes, spend 10 minutes gradually reducing your heart rate with a
lower resistance level.
19
Remember, start slow, with intensity low, until you build endurance and strength. And always consult your
physician before beginning any exercise program.

Additional Rights

MAINTENANCE
CAUTION – FOR SAFE OPERATION
Always inspect hardware prior to any exercise session. Look for loose hardware, loose pedals, loose cranks and frayed wires.
Repair or replace any damaged or worn parts, tighten all loose hardware.
As part of Diamondback’s normal installation and set-up process, all pedal cranks must be tightened after 8 to 10 hours of
initial riding to ensure parts are properly seated to axle. This is standard initial “break-in” service which must be performed
after the first 8 to 10 hours of use. Untightened pedal cranks may become loose, causing damage which may void the
warranty.
After training, always wipe down your 300 series unit. Perspiration that continuously settles on frame, pads or casing may
eventually cause rust or damage to the unit. Damage resulting from lack of proper maintenance will not be covered under
warranty. To clean pads, use a mild soap and warm water. Dry with a clean towel.
If noises develop or malfunctions occur, contact your authorized Diamondback fitness dealer.
