Safety Instructions
Important Safety Instructions
The following fitness safeguards and operating precautions are directed to purchasers and users of the eSpinner® indoor
cycling bike. Club Managers should ensure that members and fitness staff are trained to follow these same instructions.
Failure to follow these safeguards may result in injury or serious health risk.
DANGER – To reduce the risk of electric shock, always unplug this appliance from the electrical outlet after using it and
before cleaning.
WARNING – To reduce the risk of burns, fire, electric shock, or injury to persons: An appliance should never be left unattended when plugged in. Unplug from outlet when not in use, and before putting on or taking off parts. To disconnect,
turn all controls to the off position, then remove plug from outlet.
When using the eSpinner, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:
1. Read all instructions before using the eSpinner.
2. Close supervision is necessary when this appliance is used by, on, or near, invalids or disabled persons.
Children under the age of 16 should not ride the eSpinner bike. The bike mechanism and ergonomics are
designed for adult use only.
3. Always follow the console instructions for proper operation.
4. Use the eSpinner only for its intended use as described in this manual. Do not use attachments not recommended by the manufacturer.
5. Keep the cord away from heated surfaces.
6. Never operate the eSpinner with the air openings blocked. Keep the air openings free of lint, hair, and the
like.
7. Do not insert any object, hands or feet into any openings, or expose hands, arms or feet to the drive mechanism or other potentially moving part of the bike.
8. Do not use outdoors.
9. Do not operate where aerosol (spray) products are being used or where oxygen is being administered.
10. Never operate the eSpinner if it has a damaged cord or plug, if it is not working properly, if it has been
dropped or damaged. Call your dealer or Star Trac at (800) 503-1221, or USA 1-714-669-1660 for examination and repair.
11. If at any time you feel dizzy or have difficulty breathing, gradually stop pedaling and carefully dismount the
bike.
12. Ensure that adjustment knobs (seat height, seat fore-and-aft, and handlebar) are properly secured and do
not interfere with range of motion during exercise.
13. The maximum user weight should not exceed 350 pounds (159 kilograms).
14. eSpinner bikes have a weighted flywheel equipped with Smart Release™. This allows the benefits of the
direct drive system with a safety clutch to release the crank from the direct drive when a force is applied to
the pedals.
15. After exercising, turn the resistance knob to increase resistance so the pedals will not rotate freely and potentially injure someone.
16. Listen to your body, ride at your own pace and set your bike’s resistance at the level that feels right for you.
17. Keep children and pets away from the bike whenever it's in use.
18. Never turn the pedal crank arms by hand. Stay hydrated. Drink water throughout your ride as needed.
19. Always keep some resistance on the flywheel.
20. Stay in control by executing all core movements and hand positions at a slow pace before attempting to increase your speed. Do not attempt to ride the bike in a standing position at a high RPM until you have practiced at slower speeds.
21. Focus on form, posture and making smooth transitions between movements.
22. Do not use the bike without proper footwear. Never operate the bike with bare feet.
23. Never remove your feet from the pedals while still in motion. Prevent your feet from coming out of the toe
clip or shoe cage by keeping shoe laces tucked in and foot straps pulled snug around your shoe. If your foot
does become disengaged, push down on the resistance knob to stop the flywheel’s motion.

Testing the Bike
Use this checklist to perform the bike test procedure.
Recheck all the bolts and make sure they are all tightened to the proper torque specification and no parts are missing.
Test the handlebar and seat post to make sure they move freely and you are able to lock in at different positions.
Check the seat to make sure it is level and tight and does not rotate around or tilt. Tighten and adjust as needed.
Test the seat slide for movement front to rear and check it by setting it at different settings.
CAUTION: The flywheel will continue to spin after you pedal and the crank arms and pedals will rotate with the flywheel.
Brake tension is adjustable using the red resistance knob in the front of the bike. Pressing down on the knob will apply the
brake if you need to stop quickly.
Adjust seat post and handlebar post to your needs. Ride / test the bike for proper operation according to the owner's manual.
Pedal the bike at a moderate pace and test for proper and smooth resistance changes while varying the amount of turns on
the resistance knob.
When the testing is complete tip the bike forward using the handlebars and roll it on a smooth surface to the final location
and adjust the leveling feet so the bike is stable.

Bike Adjustments
Your Spinner® indoor cycling bike is easy to use. The bike allows the user full control over resistance by simply adjusting the brake pad. Typically, lower resistance levels enable you to pedal at a faster pace, placing increased demand
on the cardiovascular system. Higher resistance levels will typically deliver a greater muscle/endurance workout at
lower RPMs (Revolutions Per Minute). RPM parameters in the Spinning® program range from 60 to 110 RPM.
Additionally, the bike offers seat and handlebar adjustments, allowing the bike to be configured to each users comfort
zone.
This section provides the instructions for making seat adjustments, handlebar adjustments, pedal strap adjustments,
and for controlling resistance. Differences between models are noted where applicable.
PLEASE NOTE: In a club setting, we recommend each user to initially be properly fitted on the bike by a certified Spinning® instructor.
Seat Adjustments
Proper seat height helps ensure maximum exercise efficiency and comfort, while reducing the risk of injury. Adjust the seat height
so that the knee joint is slightly flexed when the extended leg is at the bottom of the pedal stroke. Once the proper height has been
achieved, adjust the seat forward or back so that when the feet are in the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions, the forward knee is directly over the pedal axle. Recheck the seat height again after making the fore/aft adjustment, as moving the seat forward and
backward can have the same effect as moving it higher or lower
To adjust the seat height:
Dismount the bike. Turn the seat height pop-pin counterclockwise and pull out on the pin to release it
from its current preset location. Raise or lower the seat to the desired height, then gently release the
pop-pin. Raise or lower the seat slightly, if necessary, until the pop-pin engages a preset hole. Turn the
pop-pin clockwise to secure. Be sure to tighten firmly.
Seat Height Pop-Pin
To adjust the seat horizontal position:
Dismount the bike. Loosen the seat fore-and-aft tension knob by turning the knob counterclockwise.
Move the seat forward or back to the desired position, then tighten the tension knob by turning clockwise.
Seat Fore/Aft Pop-Pin
25
Bike Adjustments
Handlebar Adjustments
Position the handlebar at the same height as your seat, or higher if you feel any discomfort in your back. All Spinner®
indoor cycling bikes allow for adjustment of handlebar height.
To adjust the handlebar height:
Turn the handlebar height pop-pin counterclockwise and pull out on the pin to release it from
its current preset location. Raise or lower the handlebar to the desired height, then gently
release the pop-pin. Raise or lower the handlebar slightly, if necessary, until the pop-pin
engages a preset hole. Turn the pop-pin clockwise to secure.
Handlebar Height Pop-Pin
Pedal Strap Adjustment
To adjust the pedal straps:
Place the balls of your feet securely in the toe cages, with the ball of the foot (or the widest
part of your shoe) over the center of the pedals. As you pedal, concentrate on keeping feet flat,
which enables a more powerful pedal stroke. The front of the shoe may not completely fill the
toe cage.
Note: The pedal straps should be adjusted to hold the foot snugly in the pedal.
Tightening Clip
Resistance Control
Pedaling resistance is controlled by the resistance knob. Resistance adjustments can be made
while riding to vary the intensity of your workout. To increase resistance, turn the Push Brake System knob clockwise (+); to decrease resistance, turn the knob counterclockwise (-).
NOTE: In case of emergency, you may press directly down on the Push Brake System knob
to bring the flywheel to an abrupt stop.
Resistance Knob
Smart Release™ System
Allows the benefits of the direct drive system with a safety clutch to release the crank from the direct drive when a
force is applied to the pedals.

User Information
Bike Setup
Proper bike setup gives you a more comfortable ride and reduces your risk of injury.
SEAT HEIGHT
At the proper height, there should be a slight bend in your knee when you’re at the bottom of a pedal stroke.
FORE/AFT POSITION
Once the proper height has been achieved, adjust the seat forward or back so that when the feet are
in the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock positions, the forward knee is directly over the pedal axle. Recheck the
seat height again after making the fore/aft adjustment, as moving the seat forward and backward can
have the same effect as moving it higher or lower.
HANDLEBAR HEIGHT
Position the handlebar at the same height as your seat, or higher if you feel any discomfort in your back.
FOOT POSITION
Place the balls of your feet securely in the toe cages, with the ball of the foot (or the widest part of your shoe) over the
center of the pedals. As you pedal, concentrate on keeping feet flat, which enables a more powerful pedal stroke. The
front of the shoe may not completely fill the toe cage.
RESISTANCE CONTROL
Pedaling resistance is controlled by the Push Brake System knob located below the handlebar. Resistance adjustments can be made while riding to vary the intensity of your workout. To increase resistance, turn the Push Brake System knob clockwise (+); to decrease resistance, turn the knob counterclockwise (-).

Hand Positions
The Spinning® program is a simple and effective way to get the fitness results you want. Following are the three hand
positions used in the Spinning® program.
HAND POSITION 1 can be used for
warm-up, cool-down and light to moderate intensity seated flats. Form
loose fists and rest the outsides of
your hands on the handlebars. Keep
your elbows and shoulders relaxed.
HAND POSITION 2 is used at all
times except out-of-the-saddle
climbs. This position provides a stable foundation and opens the lungs to
facilitate breathing.
HAND POSITION 3 is only used for
out-of-the-saddle climbs. Lightly
grasp the ends of the handlebars,
wrap your fingers around them and
place your thumbs over the ends.
Riding Positions
Here’s an overview of the core movements that form the foundation of the Spinning® program.
SEATED FLAT (HAND POSITION 1 OR
2) This basic movement builds strength
and stamina.
STANDING CLIMB (HAND POSITION 3)
This out-of-the-saddle climb incorporates
high resistance to strengthen and define
the legs.
28
SEATED CLIMB (HAND POSITION 2)
This movement tones and strengthens the
gluteals and hamstrings.
STANDING FLAT/RUNNING (HAND
POSITION 2) This movement is performed out-of-the-saddle using light to
moderate resist-ance. “Running” develops
core strength and increases endurance.
JUMPS (HAND POSITION 2) Jumps are performed by moving off and on the saddle
with smooth, controlled movements. Jumps develop overall strength, hone reaction
time and improve balance.

Stretching
Stretching will help prevent injury and soreness. It keeps the lower back and leg muscles flexible, which enhances physical performance and reduces strain. Below are some key stretches to incorporate at the beginning and end of your workout. You should stretch
slowly to the point where mild discomfort is felt in the muscle being stretched. Practice deep breathing through the nose at all times.
Do not bounce during the stretch, since this may result in injury. The following streches should be performed off the bike.
HAMSTRINGS
1 Place one foot on the bike between the handlebars and the seat, and find a position where your balance on your supporting leg is stable.
2 Slightly bend your supporting leg.
3 Square your hips so both hip bones “face” forward.
4 As you exhale, bend forward from your hips and bring your straight torso toward your straight leg.
5 Relax and breathe as you stretch. Switch legs after 30-60 seconds.
QUADS
1 Hold onto the bike with one hand, using the bike for balance.
2 Grasp the top of your foot or ankle with your free hand and bring your heel as close to the buttocks as possible.
3 As you exhale, pull your abdominals in and tuck your hips underneath you.
4 Hold the stretch and breathe. Switch legs after 30-60 seconds.
CALVES
1 Standing directly behind the Spinner®, place the sole of one foot against the bottom of the frame,
heel down.
2 Stand erect and lean slightly into the bike until you feel a stretch in your calf muscles.
3 Hold the stretch and breathe. Switch legs after 30–60 seconds.

You may use the heart rate strap to automatically check your heart rate. Just follow these steps:
•
Before beginning your workout, or during a pause, moisten the back of the transmitter on the heart
rate strap (not included). Place the strap snugly around your chest with the transmitter resting directly
over your sternum.
•
When your heart rate has been acquired, the Main Screen displays a permanent Heart Rate icon and
your heart rate in beats-per-minute (BPM).
•
Remove the heart rate strap, if you wish to remove your heart rate reading from the display.
NOTE: The performance of the transmitter may be affected by body types, body oils, metal in clothing, and outside electrical
interference. Always be sure that the transmitter and skin are in good contact. Avoid operating other electrical equipment near your
treadmill when you use the heart rate strap.

Maintenance
This section provides the procedures to maintain the Spinner® indoor cycling bikes in serviceable condition. Differences between
models are noted where applicable.
Moving and Leveling
To move the bike to a new location: Lift the bike from the rear and use the front wheels (located on the front leg, below the handlebar) to roll the bike from one location to another.
To level the bike: Use the four leveling adjusters (located on the underside of the front and rear legs) to compensate for uneven
floor surfaces.
Preventive Maintenance
Perform regular scheduled preventive maintenance procedures to maintain your Spinner® indoor cycling bike in serviceable condition.
TOOLS
Tools required for service and maintenance of your Spinner® indoor cycling bike are listed below.
Tool
Purpose
Pedal Wrench, 15mm*
Remove and install pedals.
Shimano-compatible Bottom Bracket Tool*
Remove, install and adjust the bottom bracket. (Spinner® V)
Cotterless Crank Puller*
Remove crank.
Metric Allen Wrench Set and Metric Socket, 2mm ~ 6mm
Crescent (adjustable) Wrench
Install and adjust leg bolts, chain tensioner, brake pad and crank
bolts.
Adjust chain tension.
Torque Wrench
Adjust crank arm.
Available at local bike or fitness-related stores.
Daily Maintenance
The service life of your Spinner® indoor cycling bike will be determined by how consistently you perform the daily maintenance procedures. Dry the Spinner® indoor cycling bike after each use to remove sweat and moisture. It is best to use a liquid non-abrasive
cleaner and water solution.
Wipe Down / Cleaning
To prevent the build-up of rust and other forms of corrosion, wipe down the bike at the end of each day (or preferably at the end of
each class). Raise all posts to the highest setting to expose moisture. Using an absorbent cloth, focus on all areas that perspiration
can settle. Give particular attention to the following areas:
Handlebar
Seat / adjustable slide for the seat
Flywheel
Back leg assembly
Chain guard
Brake knob and bolt assembly
Pop-pins
Leveling feet
NOTE: Never use abrasive cleaning liquids or petroleum-based solvents when wiping down the bike.
NOTE: Release all tension from the resistance knob after each use to allow for perspiration to evaporate. If bikes are used in a
class setting, the instructor may direct class participants to release all tension for the resistance knob after each use.
44
Preventive Maintenance
Inspection / Adjustments
Inspect major moving parts that require constant proper torque. Loose or misadjusted parts can result in personal injury or damage
to the bike. Check the following parts for security and/or proper torque.
Crank arms : The crank arms should be re-torqued after the first 10 hours of use and every 100 hours of operation, thereafter. The
crank arm to the bottom bracket torque is 30 lbs-ft (± 3 lbs-ft).
Pedals: Use a pedal wrench. Verify that the pedal is not cross-threaded.
IMPORTANT: If your facility allows members to interchange pedals, it is critical that the pedals are checked after each class
to prevent damage, which may lead to injuries if ignored.
Water bottle: Tighten down assembly screws.
NOTE: Water bottle cages are easily damaged when oversized bottles are forced to fit within the bottle cage. Checking and
tightening the screws will help prevent damage.
Weekly Maintenance
Weekly maintenance should focus on the overall performance of the Spinner® indoor cycling bike. During these inspections, look for
vibration and possible loose assemblies.
Have an experienced rider ride each bike to identify and help diagnose any vibration, noises, and any "unusual" feeling from the
drive chain. Either faulty flywheel alignment or a loose chain can cause vibration.
•
Check for proper flywheel alignment. Torque flywheel nuts as necessary.
•
Remove chain guard and check for loose chain. Adjust chain as necessary (refer to "Chain Adjustment" on pages 23-24).
•
Inspect The Bottom Bracket Assembly (BBA). The BBA will come loose periodically and require tightening. Loose play (left
and right motion) indicates the BBA needs adjusting.
Inspect each bike for loose assemblies, parts, bolts and nuts. Give particular attention to the following:
•
Tighten all frame base hardware.
•
Tighten all pull pin handles.
•
Tighten seat hardware.
•
Tighten pedal toe clip / toe straps.
•
Inspect and tighten tension knob assembly.
Monthly Maintenance
The monthly maintenance check should be a comprehensive inspection of the overall frame and main assembly components of the
Spinner® indoor cycling bike.
•
Inspect the frame and main assembly components for rust or corrosion. Tilt the bike or place in an upside down position to locate areas where rust and corrosion may develop. Use a small, wire brush to remove rust build-up in small crevasses, such as
leveling feet, pop pin handles and other bolt assemblies. Give particular attention to the following areas:
Leveling feet
•
Pop pin handles
Inspect all wear items for adjustments or possible part replacement. Give particular attention to the following:
•
Inspect brake pad for wear. Excessive wear, such as glazing or leather separation, indicates replacement is required.
•
Inspect seat pad for wear. Rips, tears or excessive movement indicates replacement is required.
•
Inspect pedals for play. Excessive movement of pedals indicates replacement is required.

Preventive Maintenance
Chain Tension Adjustment
The chain on your bike has been factory set and lubricated. It should not require adjustment initially. Over time, however, you may
need to adjust the tension.
CAUTION: Improper chain adjustment will cause premature wear and may void the warranty.
To adjust chain on eSpinner®:
1. Using a 3mm Allen Wrench, remove the four screws supporting the
plastic chain guard shroud. (Figures 1)
2. Using a 16mm or 5/8” socket and socket wrench, loosen the axle
nuts on both sides of the flywheel.
3. Using a 10mm open end wrench, loosen the lock nuts on the chain
adjustment screws.
4. To tighten the chain, turn the adjustment screw in a clockwise rotation equally on both sides using the 10mm open end wrench.
Figure 1
5. To loosen the chain, turn the adjustment screws on both sides
counter-clockwise using a 10mm open end wrench.
Adjustment Screws
6. While adjusting the chain tension, work on both sides of the flywheel. Adjust the angle of the flywheel so it is straight front to rear
and evenly spaced within the frame side to side. (Figure 2 )
7. Align the chain so it runs straight on both of the sprockets.
8. Adjust the angle of the flywheel by adjusting the adjustment screws
on both sides of the flywheel. Test by slowly rotating the pedals.
Axle Nuts
Note:
•
If the chain is stretched beyond adjustment, the replacement of the chain is recommended. Proceed to “Chain
Replacement” for further instructions.
•
When alignment is at the optimal adjustment, the chain will
run smoother and quieter.
9. Tighten the adjustment lock nuts and axle nuts on both sides.
10. Install the chain guard shroud and re-test the bike.

Clutch Adjustment
The chain on your bike has been factory set and lubricated. It should not require adjustment initially. Over time, however, you may
need to adjust the tension.
CAUTION: Improper chain adjustment will cause premature wear and may void the warranty.
To adjust chain on eSpinner®:
1. Using a 3mm Allen Wrench, remove the three screws supporting the
plastic chain guard shroud.
COG Cover
2. Using a 3mm Allen Wrench, remove the four screws supporting the
COG guard cover. (Figure 3)
3. If the torque is not 45 ~ 50 ft-lbs. using a 5 mm Allen Wrench, give
each of the set screws a little clockwise turn. A “little turn” is about
10 degrees. (Figure 3 & 4)
Figure 3
Note:
Be sure and turn all 5 set screws so they have equal pressure
to obtain the proper adjustment. Recheck the torque for different positions around the clutch. If it is still not 45 ~ 50 ft-lbs,
repeat the procedure.
The goal is to make all the set screws have the same pressure on the clutch.
4. Test the clutch system for proper operation for normal riding use.
Observe all safety practices.

Brake Pad Replacement
The chain on your bike has been factory set and lubricated. It should not require adjustment initially. Over time, however, you may
need to adjust the tension.
CAUTION: Improper chain adjustment will cause premature wear and may void the warranty.
Removal
1. Remove tension from the brake pad by turning the Push Brake System
knob counterclockwise, until completely loose.
2. Using the Multi-Purpose Wrench, remove the two bolts supporting the
brake pad onto the frame.
Installation
1. Carefully re-install the two bolts through the brake pad bracket onto the
frame. Tighten by using the Multi-Purpose Wrench.
NOTE: The rear fender has been removed from Figure 3 to better illustrate the brake pad assembly. This is not required when replacing the brake pad.
Chain Replacement
WARNING! DO NO GET YOUR FINGERS CAUGHT IN THE CHAIN OR SPROCKETS FOR IT MAY CAUSE SEVERE BODILY INJURY!
Note: Only a certified Star Trac® technician should perform the following:
1. Remove the chain guard by unscrewing the chain guards screws.
2. Apply tension to the brake knob by turning it all the way clockwise so the flywheel does not turn.
3. Using the 16mm or 5/8” socket and socket wrench, loosen the axle nuts on both sides of the flywheel.
4. Using the 10mm open end wrench, loosen the lock nuts on the chain adjustment screws.
5. Loosen the adjustment screw to allow the slack in the chain.
6. Using a chain break tool, cut the chain open and remove the chain from the brake.
7. Put the new chain on the front sprocket and over the crank arm but not onto the large rear sprocket if the chain contains a master
link.
8. Insert the master link and tighten it making sure the two links are joined and flexible.
9. Lift chain up onto the rear large sprocket.
10. Proceed to chain doing the “Chain Adjustment” (Refer to pages 23-24)
