ALL MODELS
SELF-POWERED FEATURES
On the R2850HRT and E3800HRT the user’s pedaling generates the
power to initialize and display information on the monitor. A minimum of
20 RPM (revolutions per minute) is required to start and maintain enough
power to keep the monitor functional. If the minimum RPM is not
maintained, the monitor will begin to shutdown in order to maintain the
batteries charge.
An optional adapter can be purchased to recharge the unit if necessary.
This is recommended if your Bike receives inconsistent use, or long time
periods between use. To purchase the optional adapter please contact
your retailer.
SYMPTOMS OF A LOW BATTERY
If the Bike has not been used for an extended period of time, the battery
may require recharging.
Symptoms of a low battery can include:

USING THE PROGRAMS
E3800HRT
R2850HRT
The MANUAL, INTERVAL and FAT
BURN PROGRAMS are all preset
program profiles with 15 segments
of equal time. Each segment is
1/15 of the total program time.
When adjusting the programs
resistance level, the change will be
made to the entire programs intensity
level, not just the current segment.
USING THE WATTS PROGRAM
The WATTS program was
designed to provide a consistent
work load during the entire
workout no matter what rate the
exerciser is pedaling at. The
constant watts values will range
from 40 to 300 in increments of
five. Each segment is 1/15 of the
total program time. When adjusting
the programs watt level, the change
will be made to the entire program,
not just the current segment.
22
USING THE SPRINT 8 PROGRAM
R2850HRT
The SPRINT 8 program is an anaerobic
interval program designed to build
muscle, improve speed, and naturally
increase the release of Human Growth
Hormone (HGH) in your body.
Producing HGH through exercise and
a proper diet has been shown as an
effective way to burn fat and build lean muscle mass according to Phil
Campbell, author of Ready, Set, GO! SYNERGY FITNESS. Please go to
Mr. Campbell’s website, www.readysetgofitness.com, for more details
about this radical new approach to fitness.
E3800HRT
The SPRINT 8 program features intense sprint intervals followed by
recovery intervals. The program includes the following phases:
1. WARM-UP should gradually increase your heart rate and increase
respiration and blood flow to working muscles. The warm-up is
controlled by the user to meet your specific needs.
2. INTERVAL TRAINING starts immediately after the warm-up with a
30-second sprint interval. Seven recovery intervals of one minute
and 30 seconds will alternate with the eight 30-second sprint
intervals. The message display will prompt you to increase your
pedal rate during the sprint interval and decrease pedal rate
during the recovery interval. A difference of 30 to 50 RPM
between sprint interval and recovery interval is recommended.
3. COOL-DOWN helps return your body’s systems to resting levels. Less
demand is placed on your heart during recovery if an appropriate
cool-down is used following the exercise.
Due to the fact that this is a specialized training program, total workout time
is not displayed during the program. The interval time is displayed in the time
window instead. It takes only 20 minutes to complete the SPRINT 8 workout.
23
USING THE FIT TEST PROGRAM
R2850HRT
The FIT TEST program is a five
minute sub-maximal fitness test that
measures cardiovascular fitness
and can be used to determine the
exerciser’s general fitness level. It is
a great way for individuals to gauge
exercise improvements over time.
E3800HRT
For best results it is best to take the test under similar circumstances each
time you take the test. Results may be dependent on the following factors:
• amount of sleep the previous night (minimum of six hours is
recommended)
• time since last exercise (minimum of six hours is recommended)
• time since last meal (minimum of two hours is recommended)
• time since last caffeinated or alcoholic beverage (four hours is
recommended)
• time of day
SET-UP
The exerciser will be asked to enter Age, Gender, Weight, and Activity Level.
The activity level range is from 1 to 10.
Fitness Level Suggested Activity Levels
Inactive
1–4
Active
4–7
Very Active
7 – 10
Younger, taller and higher weight individuals are recommended to use higher
values, while older, shorter and lower weight individuals should use lower
levels. In cases of excessive weight, the user should use the lower values.
24
THE TEST
For best results the user is required to pedal between 40 and 60 RPM.
The exerciser must keep their hands on the hand pulse heart rate sensors
or wear a telemetric chest strap to complete the test.
R2850HRT
NOTE: If 40-60 RPM is not maintained or the console does not sense a
heart rate the test will be terminated.
THE RESULTS
E3800HRT
Results are based on Estimated VO2 Max results for men and women.

26
ALL HRT PROGRAMS
R2850HRT
During the workout, the user will grasp
the hand pulse sensors or wear the
telemetric chest strap to send their
heart rate signal to a receiver in the
console. The console will continuously
monitor the heart rate, adjusting the
resistance level of the Bike to keep
your heart rate within several beats of your target heart rate. The heart rate
feedback window conveniently displays your Heart Rate, and % Heart
Rate to keep you informed about your current heart rate. Each program
will begin with a two-minute warm-up. When the workout time has been
completed, the console will begin a five-minute cool-down. The user will
be responsible for adjusting resistance as they need during the warm-up
and cool-down.
E3800HRT
ADJUSTING TARGET HEART RATE
While exercising in one of the
HRT® programs, you may decide
the target heart rate needs to be
adjusted. To adjust your target heart
rate, use the UP arrow or DOWN
arrow. Push ENTER to select.
27
HRT CARDIO
R2850HRT
The HRT CARDIO program is designed to maintain your heart rate at 80%
of your predicted maximum heart rate. It is intended to improve efficiency
and endurance of your cardiovascular system by working your heart, lungs
and circulatory systems. This is a great workout for anyone, but beginners
may want to start lower and build their way up to 80% of their predicted
maximum heart rate.
HRT WEIGHT LOSS
E3800HRT
The HRT WEIGHT LOSS program is designed to maintain your heart rate
at 65% of your predicted maximum heart rate. The goal of this program
is to burn calories by using your body’s fat reserves as the primary fuel
during exercise and to improve the efficiency of your workout by
eliminating over-training or under-training. This is a great workout for
beginners.
HRT INTERVAL
The HRT INTERVAL program is designed to increase aerobic endurance
and your overall fitness level, increase endurance of muscle fibers, and
increase the amount of calories burned in your exercise session. This
program consists of alternating effort and recovery intervals. The target
heart rate for your effort interval will be 80% of your predicted maximum
heart rate, while the target heart rate for your recovery intervals will be
70% of your predicted maximum heart rate. The two-minute effort interval
begins when you reach your target heart rate for that particular interval.
HRT HILL
28
The HRT HILL program uses four different target heart rates to build
cardiovascular strength and endurance. The resistance will adjust until your
heart rate reaches the target heart rate for the four separate hills. The hills
will be set at 65%, 70%, 75%, and 80% of your predicted maximum heart
rate. The program will keep you at each heart rate level for one minute
from the time the target heart rate is reached. The program will repeat the
series of hills until the workout time is complete.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Our Bikes are designed to be reliable and easy to use. If, however, you
have a problem, these troubleshooting steps may reveal the cause.
PROBLEM: The console does not light up.
SOLUTION: Make sure you are pedaling the Bike.
SOLUTION: Make sure the wire harness is plugged into the back of the
console.
PROBLEM: The Bike is making a
clicking noise.
GENERAL
SOLUTION: Using the pedal
wrench supplied with your Bike,
remove both the left and right
pedals, apply grease to the
threaded portion and reassemble
the pedals onto the Bike. Make
sure the pedals are tight.
SOLUTION: Make sure the pedal straps or your shoe laces are not hitting
the side cover.
SOLUTION: Assure seat adjustment is tight (see pages 8 and 9).

loosen the Fixing Nuts on the side
of the seat frame. With an 11mm
