FITNESS BIKE FEATURES
FOOT PEDALS
Through research performed with a leading sports scientist and physical rehabilitation expert,
Fuel engineering has developed a breakthrough in pedal design. Typical stationary exercise
bikes are wider than a normal road bike. The reason is to allow for the braking mechanism,
pulleys, drive components and plastic covers. Since the bike is wider, so is the distance between
the pedals; this width between the pedals is called the Q factor.
Fuel has designed our pedal system so the Q factor is the smallest in the industry, but we did
not stop there. We have also custom designed and tooled a new pedal that provides a two
degree inward tilt to compensate for the Q factor not being perfect. Having a small Q factor in
addition to the two-degree inward tilt of the pedals puts the user into a biomechanical neutral
alignment. This means that your feet, ankles, knees and hips are lined up properly ensuring a
comfortable workout.
SEAT ADJUSTMENT
You are able to adjust the seat position while seated. Pull up on the lever located in front of the
seat and slide the carriage forward or backwards. The correct position is when there is a slight
bend in your knee when the pedal is at its farthest position forward (3 o’clock position when
looking from the right side of the bike). Release the lever and you are ready to begin.
PEDAL STRAP ADJUSTMENT
Adjust each pedal strap so that they are snug around your feet. You have the option of
adjusting the hole location on one or both sides of the pedal.

POWER UP
When power is connected to the fitness bike the console will automatically power up. These
models operate on 12V/1.5A DC which is supplied by the power pack that is connected to 115
VAC.
When it is first powered on, the console will perform an internal self-test. During this time all the
lights will turn on. When the lights go off, the Message Window will show a software version
(i.e.: VER 1.0) and the Distance window will display an odometer reading. The odometer reading
displays how many virtual miles the fitness bike has gone. The Time window displays how many
hours the fitness bike has been used.
The odometer and time will remain displayed for only a few seconds then the console will go to
the start-up display. The dot matrix display will be scrolling through the different workout profiles
and the Message Window will scroll the start-up message. You may now begin to use the
console.

CONSOLE OPERATION
QUICK START
This is the quickest way to start a workout. After the
console powers up you just press the Start key to begin,
this will initiate the Quick Start mode. In Quick Start the
time will count up from zero and the workload/resistance
may be adjusted manually by pressing the Level
/ buttons. The dot matrix display will be showing a
track with a blinking dot indicating your progress as it
travels around the track.
▲▼
BASIC INFORMATION
The Message Window will initially display Laps completed. Each time the Display button is
pressed the next set of information will appear. The order of information displayed will be:
Speed, RPM, Level, Watts, Segment Time and Data Scan mode. In Data Scan mode, the
displayed information will change every 4 seconds in the Message Window.
T The fitness bike has a built in heart rate monitoring system. Simply grasping the Contact Heart
Rate Sensors on the handle bars or wearing the chest strap transmitter will start the heart (see
Heart Rate Programs) Icon blinking (this may take a few seconds). The Pulse Window will display
your heart rate in beats per minute and the HR bar graph will show your current % in relation to
projected heart rate maximum. The chest strap is a more accurate and reliable method of heart
rate reading. The hand pulse sensors are subject to false readings depending on user physiology
and workout habits including how one grips the sensors or how sweaty their hands are.
The Stop button actually has several functions. Pressing the
Stop key once during a program will Pause the program for 5
minutes. If you need to get a drink, answer the phone or any
of the many things that could interrupt your workout, this is a
great feature. To resume your workout during Pause just press
the Start key. If the Stop button is pressed twice during a
workout the program will end and a Workout Summary is
displayed.
If the Stop/Reset key is held down for 3 seconds the console will perform a complete Reset.
During data entry for a program the Stop/Reset key performs a Previous Screen function. This
allows you to go back one step in the programming each time you press the Stop key.
There is an Audio In Jack (
) on the front of the console and built-in speakers. You may
plug any low-level audio source signal into this port. Audio sources include MP3, iPod, portable
radio, CD player or even a TV or computer audio signal. There is also a Headphone Jack
(
)for private listening.

PROGRAMMING THE CONSOLE
Each of the programs can be customized with your personal information and changed to suit
your needs. Some of the information asked for is necessary to ensure the readouts are correct.
You will be asked for your Age and Weight. Entering your Age is necessary during the Heart
Rate control program to ensure the correct settings are entered in the program; entering your
Weight aides in calculating a more correct Calorie reading. Although we cannot provide an
exact calorie count we do want to be as close as possible.
A message about Calories: Calorie readings on every piece of exercise equipment, whether it is
in a gym or at home, are not accurate and tend to vary widely. They are meant only as a guide to
monitor your progress from workout to workout. The only way to measure your calorie burn
accurately as in a clinical setting connected to a host of machines. This is because every person is
different and burns calories at a different rate.
ENTERING A PROGRAM AND CHANGING SETTINGS
Press each program button to scroll through the program selections. The profile for each
program will be displayed in the dot matrix window. Press the Enter key to select a program and
begin customizing the settings. If you want to workout without entering new settings, then just
press the Start key. This will bypass the programming of data and take you directly to the start of
your workout. If you want to change the personal settings, then just follow the instructions in
the Message Window. If you start a program without changing the settings,
the default settings will be used.
Note: Age and Weight default settings will change when you enter a new number. So the last Age
and Weight entered will be saved as the new default settings. If you enter Age and Weight the first
time you use the fitness bike you will not have to enter it every time you work out unless either
Age or Weight has changed or someone else enters a different Age and Weight.

PRESET PROGRAMS
The fitness bike has five different programs that have been designed for a variety of workouts. These
five programs have factory preset work level profiles for achieving different goals.
Hill
The Hill program simulates going up and down a hill. The resistance in the pedals will steadily
increase and then decrease during the program.
WORK
Fat Burn
The Fat Burn program is designed, as the name implies, to maximize the burning of fat. There are
many schools of thought on the best way to burn fat but most experts agree that a lower exertion
level that stays at a steady workload is the best. The absolute best way to burn fat is to keep your
heart rate at around 60% to 70% of its maximum potential. This program does not use heart rate but
simulates a lower, steady exertion workout.
WORK
Cardio
The Cardio program is designed to increase your cardiovascular function and endurance. This is
exercise for your heart and lungs. It will build up your heart muscle and increase blood flow and lung
capacity. This is achieved by incorporating a higher level of exertion with slight fluctuations in work.
WORK
Interval
The Interval program takes you through high levels of intensity followed by periods of low intensity.
This program increases your endurance by depleting your oxygen level followed by periods of
recovery to replenish oxygen. Your cardiovascular system gets programmed to use oxygen more
efficiently this way. This program also forces your body to become more efficient due to spikes in
heart rate, between recovery periods. This aids in heart rate recovery from intense activities.

HEART RATE PROGRAMS
Before we get started, a word about Heart Rate:
The old motto, “no pain, no gain”, is a myth that has been overpowered by the benefits of
exercising comfortably. A great deal of this success has been promoted by the use of heart rate
monitors. With the proper use of a heart rate monitor, many people find that their usual choice
of exercise intensity was either too high or too low and exercise is much more enjoyable by
maintaining their heart rate in the desired benefit range.
To determine the benefit range in which you wish to train, you must first determine your
Maximum Heart Rate. This can be accomplished by using the following formula: 220 minus your
age. This will give you the Maximum Heart Rate (MHR)for someone of your age. To determine
the effective heart rate range for specific goals you simply calculate a percentage your MHR.
Your Heart rate training zone is 50% to 90% of your maximum heart rate. 60% of your MHR is
the zone that burns fat while 80% is for strengthening the cardio vascular system. This 60% to
80% is the zone to stay in for maximum benefit.
For someone who is 40 years old their
target heart rate zone is calculated:
220 – 40 = 180 (maximum heart rate)
180 x .6 = 108 beats per minute
(60% of maximum)
180 X .8 = 144 beats per minute
(80% of maximum)
So for a 40 year old the training zone would be
108 to 144 beats per minute.
If you enter your age during programming the console will perform this calculation
automatically. Entering your age is used for the Heart Rate control programs. After calculating
your MHR you can decide upon which goal you would like to pursue.
The two most popular reasons for, or goals, of exercise are cardiovascular fitness (training for the
heart and lungs) and weight control. The black columns on the chart above represent the MHR
for a person whose age is listed at the bottom of each column. The training heart rate, for either
cardiovascular fitness or weight loss, is represented by two different lines that cut diagonally
through the chart. A definition of the lines’ goal is in the bottom left-hand corner of the chart. If
your goal is cardiovascular fitness or if it is weight loss, it can be achieved by training at 80% or
60%, respectively, of your MHR on a schedule approved by your physician. Consult your
physician before participating in any exercise program.
With all FUEL Heart Rate Control fitness bike machines you may use the heart rate monitor
feature without using the Heart Rate Control program. This function can be used during manual
mode or during any of the nine different programs. The Heart Rate Control program
automatically controls resistance at the pedals.

RATE OF PERCEIVED EXERTION
Heart rate is important but listening to your body also has a lot of advantages. There are more
variables involved in how hard you should workout than just heart rate. Your stress level, physical
health, emotional health, temperature, humidity, the time of day, the last time you ate and what
you ate, all contribute to the intensity at which you should workout. If you listen to your body, it
will tell you all of these things.
The rate of perceived exertion (RPE), also know as the Borg scale, was developed by Swedish
physiologist G.A.V. Borg. This scale rates exercise intensity from 6 to 20 depending upon how you
feel or the perception of your effort.
The scale is as follows: Rating Perception of Effort
6 Minimal
7 Very,very light
8 Very,very light +
9 Very light
10 Very light +
11 Fairly light
12 Comfortable
13 Somewhat hard
14 Somewhat hard +
15 Hard
16 Hard +
17 Very hard
18 Very hard +
19 Very,very hard
20 Maximal
You can get an approximate heart rate level for each rating by simply adding a zero to each rating.
For example a rating of 12 will result in an approximate heart rate of 120 beats per minute. Your
RPE will vary depending up the factors discussed earlier. That is the major benefit of this type of
training. If your body is strong and rested, you will feel strong and your pace will feel easier. When
your body is in this condition, you are able to train harder and the RPE will support this. If you are
feeling tired and sluggish, it is because your body needs a break. In this condition, your pace will
feel harder. Again, this will show up in your RPE and you will train at the proper level for that day.

USING HEART RATE TRANSMITTER
How to wear your wireless chest strap transmitter:
1. Attach the transmitter to the elastic strap using the locking parts.
2. Adjust the strap as tightly as possible as long as the strap is not too
tight to remain comfortable.
3. Position the transmitter with the logo centered in the middle of your
body facing away from your chest (some people must position the
transmitter slightly left of center). Attach the final end of the elastic
strap by inserting the round end and, using the locking parts, secure
the transmitter and strap around your chest.
4. Position the transmitter immediately below the pectoral muscles.
5. Sweat is the best conductor to measure very minute heart beat electrical signals. However, plain
water can also be used to pre-wet the electrodes (2 ribbed oval areas on the reverse side of the
belt and both sides of the transmitter). It’s also recommended that you wear the transmitter
strap a few minutes before your work out. Some users, because of body chemistry, have a more
difficult time in achieving a strong, steady signal at the beginning. After “warming up”, this
problem lessens. As noted, wearing clothing over the transmitter/strap doesn’t affect
performance.
6. Your workout must be within range - distance between transmitter/receiver – to achieve a
strong steady signal. The length of range may vary somewhat but generally stay close enough to
the console to maintain good, strong, reliable readings. Wearing the transmitter immediately
against bare skin assures you of proper operation. If you wish, you may wear the transmitter
over a shirt. To do so, moisten the areas of the shirt that the electrodes will rest upon.
Note: The transmitter is automatically activated when it detects activity from the user’s heart. Additionally, it
automatically deactivates when it does not receive any activity. Although the transmitter is water resistant,
moisture can have the effect of creating false signals, so you should take precautions to completely dry the
transmitter after use to prolong battery life (estimated transmitter battery life is 2500 hours). The replacement
battery is Panasonic CR2032.
ERRATIC OPERATION
Caution! Do not use this fitness bike for Heart Rate Control unless a steady, solid Actual Heart
Rate value is being displayed. High, wild, random numbers being displayed indicate a problem.
Areas to look for interference which may cause erratic heart rate:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
Microwave ovens, TV’s, small appliances, etc.
Fluorescent lights.
Some household security systems.
Perimeter fence for a pet.
Some people have problems with the transmitter picking up a signal from their skin. If you have problems
try wearing the transmitter upside down. Normally the transmitter will be oriented so the logo is right side
up.
The antenna that picks up your heart rate is very sensitive. If there is an outside noise source, turning the
whole machine 90 degrees may de-tune the interference.
Another Individual wearing a transmitter within 3’ of your machine’s console.
If you continue to experience problems contact your dealer.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE
1.
2.
Wipe down all areas in the sweat path with a damp cloth after each workout.
If a squeak, thump, clicking or rough feeling develops the main cause is most likely one
of two reasons:
I、 The hardware was not sufficiently tightened during assembly. All bolts that were
installed during assembly need to be tightened as much as possible. It may be
necessary to use a larger wrench than the one provided if you cannot tighten the
bolts sufficiently. Ninety percent of calls to the service department for noise issues
can be traced to loose hardware.
II、 The crank arm nut needs to be retightened
III、 If squeaks or other noises persist, check that the unit is properly leveled. There are
2 leveling pads on the bottom of the rear stabilizer, use a 14mm wrench (or
adjustable wrench) to adjust the levelers.
MAINTENANCE MENU IN CONSOLE SOFTWARE
The console has built in maintenance/diagnostic software. The software will allow you to
change the console settings from English to Metric and turn off the beeping of the speaker
when a key is pressed for example. To enter the Maintenance Menu (may be called
Engineering mode, depending on version) press and hold down the Start, Stop and Enter
keys Keep holding the keys down for about 5 seconds and the Message Window will display
“Engineering mode”. Press the Enter button to access the menu below. Press the Level /
