Adjusting the Bike
Seat Adjustment
1. Rotate the pedals so that one of the pedals is in the upward position.
2. Place your foot in the toe clip of the pedal closest to the floor and mount the bike. Ensure that
the ball of your foot is over the centre of the pedal. Your leg should be slightly bent at the
knee as shown in the picture below.
3. If your leg is too straight or your foot cannot touch the pedal, you will need to lower the seat.
If your leg is bent too much, you will need to raise the seat.
4. To adjust, dismount the bike and release the quick release knob for the seat height
adjustment. Once loosened you may slide the seat post up or down as necessary. When the
seat is in the desired position, reapply the quick release knob to lock the position. Note the
final position mark on the seat stem for future use.
5. Adjusting the fore or aft allows for better fit. To adjust, dismount the bike and release the
quick release lever under the seat and slide the seat forward or backward as desired. Re-apply
the quick release clever to lock. Note the final position mark on the seat stem for future use.
Adjusting the Flywheel Resistance
The X-Bike™ Indoor Performance Bike should arrive with the resistance system set up on
the handlebars already, and may only require minor adjustment after the handlebar assembly
has been fitted onto the X-Bars™ System Head Unit. Minor adjustment can be achieved by
turning the adjuster wheel at the cable exit on the Grip-shift™ either clockwise or counterclockwise depending on whether it need to be increased or decreased.
If the resistance needs more adjustment than is available in the minor adjustment block, it can
be set up as follows:
1. Turn the minor adjuster wheel on the Grip-shift™ fully counter-clockwise so that there will
be sufficient cable in the minor adjustment block for future regular checks
7
Minor Cable Adjuster
Cable Release Bolt
2. Using a 6mm Hex key, loosen the bolt at the bottom of the V-Brake to release the cable for
adjustment.
3. Turn the Grip-shift™ fully clockwise to the minimum resistance setting – position 1. Using
one hand, compress the 2 pads of the V-Brake to just make contact with the flywheel. Pull
the excess cable until it is tight in the cable clamp. Retighten the bolt to secure the cable.
4. The resistance is set, when the minimum setting is free from contact with the flywheel and
position 2 just begins to make slight contact. Minor adjustment can be achieved by screwing
the minor adjustment wheel where the cable exits from the Grip-shift™.
Handlebar (Bar Height) Adjustment
1. If you own a road or mountain bike, this position can be taken from your chosen set up. Place
a straight edge ruler on top of your bikes saddle and extend it over the handlebar, making
sure that the ruler is level or parallel with the ground. Measure the distance from the bottom
edge of the ruler to the top of the handlebar and replicate this measurement on the X-Bike™
Indoor Cycle.
2. To adjust, dismount the bike and release the quick release knob on the head tube for the
handlebar adjustment. Raise or lower the X-Bar™ System headstock until the required
measurement has been achieved. Reapply the quick release knob to lock. Note the final
position mark on the handlebar stem for future use.
3. If you do not own a bike and are setting the height up for the first time it is suggested to set
the handlebars at the same height as the seat for a datum and then try different heights to get
the arrangement most suitable for you.
Pedal Strap Adjustment
1. Place the ball of each foot on the pedal and in the toe clip such that the ball of the foot is
centred over the pedal spindle (centre of the pedal)
2. Rotate one foot to within arms reach and pull up on the toe clip strap. Repeat for the other
foot.
3. Keep your knees over your foot as you pedal.

USING YOUR X-BIKE INDOOR PERFORMANCE BIKE
WARNING
SAFETY FIRST – PLEASE REFER TO THE SAFETY INFORMATION ON
PAGES 1 & 2 OF THIS MANUAL. THESE GUIDELINES ARE DIRECTED
TO YOU AS THE OWNER OF THIS EXERCISE EQUIPMENT AND YOU
SHOULD INSIST THAT ALL USERS FOLLOW THE SAME GUIDELINES.
YOU SHOULD MAKE THIS MANUAL AVAILABLE TO ALL USERS.
General Exercise Guidelines
You should only undertake an exercise program using an X-Bike™
Indoor Cycle, under the supervision of a qualified X-Biking™ Instructor.
Trixter, Its Distributors and Sales Agents do not accept responsibility for
any injury, which may occur whilst riding unsupervised and without
proper instruction.
Pedalling
1. Obtain a complete physical examination from your medical doctor and ensure to follow
the recommended training profiles suitable for your current health status.
2. The speed and duration of your exercise program should always be subject to how yo u
feel. Never permit peer pressure to exceed your personal judgement while exercising.
3. When working out for the first time, start out slowly for a minimum of five minutes.
After your muscles have warmed up, gradually increase the pedalling rate and/or
resistance to a speed that allows you to attain a comfortable training threshold. If you
have access to a heart rate monitoring device, you can set your speed and resistanc e that
allows you to attain your target heart rate zone.
Pumping the X-Bars
1. Once you are confident with the pedalling motion of the X-Bike, set the flywheel
resistance to a comfortable setting and get into a standing position on the bike while
continuing to pedal at a steady rate. To familiarise yourself with the pumping motion, set
the handlebar resistance to minimum by twisting the handlebar resistance knob at the side
of the X-Bars™ Handlebar System fully counter-clockwise and begin to “pump” the bars
left and right in time with your pedalling rhythm in a similar fashion as if you were riding
a bike. This natural cycling movement comes by ensuring that your right arm and left leg
go down at the same time and your left arm and right leg go down at the same time.
2. Overweight individuals should be particularly cautious when using the equipment for the
first time. Even though such individuals may not have histories of serious physical
problems, they may perceive the exercise to be far less intense than it really is, resulting
in the possibility of overexertion or injury.
3. Although all equipment manufactured by Trixter has been thoroughly inspected by the
manufacturing facility prior to shipment, the purchaser is responsible for proper assembly
and installation of the X-Bike indoor performance bike.
9
Mounting and Dismounting
Once sitting comfortably on the Bike, make sure to tighten each toe strap securely before
commencing exercise. Dismount the bike by first loosening each toe clip and then
removing your feet from the pedals. Carefully step off the bike.
Your First Workout
Basic Instructions
Once an instructor has helped you to properly adjust the bike to your body size and you are
sitting comfortably on the bike, slowly begin pedalling. Allow your hands to rest comfortably on
the handlebars.
WARNING
If at any time during your workout you feel any chest pain, experience severe muscular discomfort, feel
faint, or are short of breath, STOP EXERCISING IMMEDIATELY. If the condition persists, you should
consult your medical doctor immediately.
Pedalling Resistance
Pedalling resistance is controlled by the turning of the Twist- grip™ located on the right side of
the handlebar. The minimum resistance setting is located with the Twist-Grip™ turned fully
clockwise – increasing to a maximum Resistance when the Twist-Grip™ is turned fully counterclockwise. It may be adjusted at any time during exercising by turning the Twist-grip™ to the
desired resistance setting.
X-Bar™ Handlebar System Resistance
Handlebar resistance is controlled by the knob located at the end of the resistance damper on the
right side of the head section. There are seven settings from minimum to maximum. The
resistance can be adjusted at any time by twisting the knob anti-clockwise for minimum and
clockwise to maximum setting.
* Your instructor will advise you on the correct use of the X-Bars™ System.

and then dry off.
2. If the bikes are used frequently in group exercise sessions, inspect for loose components
such as pedals or cranks prior to commencing the next class. Tighten up any loose parts.
Weekly
1. Inspect the resistance wear pads for excessive wear or dryness. If necessary lubricate the
pads with GT-85 or another PTFE based lubricant. As the pads wear with use, it will be
necessary to adjust the resistance cable to compensate. The resistance cable can be
adjusted as follows;
o Turn the minor adjuster wheel on the Grip-shift™ fully clockwise so that there
will be sufficient cable in the minor adjustment block for future checks.
o Using a 6mm hex key, loosen the bolt at the bottom of the V-Brake to release the
cable for adjustment.
12
Minor Cable Adjuster
Cable Release Bolt
o Turn the Grip-shift™ fully clockwise to the minimum resistance setting. Using
one hand, compress the 2 pads of the V-Brake to just make contact with the
flywheel. Pull the excess cable until it is tight in the cable clamp. Retighten the
bolt to secure the cable.
o The resistance is set, when position 1 or minimum setting is free from contact
with the flywheel and position 2 just makes contact. Use minor adjustment if
required.
o If the pad thickness is reduced to less than 4mm, they need to be changed. (See
Pad Changing instructions in Parts – Removal and Replacement)
2. Wipe down the flywheel with WD-40® or equivalent light oil spray. This lubricant will
clean the surface of the flywheel and help prevent rust.
3. Lubricating the chain – Using a spray can with an extension nozzle; you can gain access
to the chain from the front of the chain guard with general light maintenance oil.
4. To keep the X-Bike looking new, wipe the general bodywork of the X-Bike and X-Bars
with a clean damp cloth. Use conventional dish washing detergent but never use abrasive
materials to clean the bike. Be certain to wipe off all traces of perspiration when you are
finished as it contains salt and other corrosive substances that can damage surfaces and/or
leave a white residue.
5. If you should need assistance or service, contact your service department
(See details at www.trixter.net)
Monthly
1. Chain Tensioning
Inspect the chain for tensioning by rotating the crank to drive the flywheel forward. Do
this motion in ¼ turns to assess if there is free play between the crank and the flywheel.
Tensioning the flywheel is achieved by adjusting the bolts in the front forks of the bike,
which set the position on the flywheel axle in the frame. To Tension the chain, undo the
axle nuts on either side of the flywheel enough to release the grip and allow the flywheel
to move.
Axle Position Markings
Chain Adjusting Bolts
Turn the chain tensioning bolts on both sides of the frame by the same amount to ensure
correct alignment. Continue to adjust in small amounts until the chain slack is eliminated
and the flywheel can rotate freely without pulling the pedals around with it.
2. X-Bars Handlebar System Damper Performance
13
Examine the damper for smoothness and consistency of movement. This is determined by
testing the movement in the handlebars firstly in minimum and then in maximum
resistance setting.
a. Air Cavitations - At minimum, the movement should be light and smooth
without the presence of the sound of air cavitations. This would be a sound you
could expect with the presence of tiny air bubbles in the system, which will affect
the consistency and quality of resistance. If cavitations are present, the damper
should be replaced. See replacing the damper in Parts – removal and replacement
section.
b. Sticking - At maximum setting, the handlebars should move from fully left to
fully right consistently without any sticking action. Over time, the moving parts
can wear and lead to resistance tolerances being affected. If the movement in the
handlebars experiences sticking, the damper should be replaced. See replacing the
damper in Parts – removal and replacement section.
3. X-Bars Handlebar System ‘Return to Zero’ Performance
Examine the action of the ‘Return to Zero’ springs on the handlebar system by setting the
resistance at maximum. Move the bars to the extreme right and release and then extreme
left and release. At this setting the mechanism should return close to centre under its own
action. If it is found that the handlebars remain unreasonably fixed to one side or the
other, the springs will need to be replaced. See replacing the ‘Return to Zero’ springs in
Parts – removal and replacement section.
4. Looseness in the X-Bars Handlebar Mechanism
a. Mechanism Hardware - Examine the handlebar system assembly for general
mechanism looseness. Check all 4 main pivot bolts, the 2 large bolts in the centre
of the assembly, and the main damper pin through the end of the damper. If any
looseness is present, tighten before reassembly. In the event that any of these bolts
have been found to be loose, they should be checked again at the next weekly
maintenance routine and if they have re- loosened, please contact your authorised
dealer. (Details for your closest dealer found at www.trixter.net)
Main Pivot Bolts
Centre Bolts
Centre Slider
Damper Slider
b. Slider wear – There are three sliders in the mechanism, 1 in the centre swinger
and the other 2 running in the damper rails. If the clearance between these sliders
and the rails in which they run exceeds 1.5mm, they should be replaced.
5. Height Adjustment
14
Dryness or prolonged use may cause the height and reach adjustments for the bars and
seat to become tight. If this is the case, the sliding assembly should be removed from the
frame and have a smear of light duty grease applied along the sliding surface before
reassembly. Similarly, apply some light grease to the clamping assembly to ensure it does
not seize up. Clean off excessive grease before reassembly.
15

Removing the Flywheel
1. Follow the procedures shown above for removing the chain guard.
2. Loosen the nuts on either side of the flywheel axle enough to allow the flywheel to move
freely in the axle slide on the frame.
3. Turn the 2 chain tensioning bolts on the front forks counter-clockwise until they are fully
removed from the flywheel bracket.
4. The flywheel axle can then be removed from the slide taking care to support its’ weight
when it drops out (40 pounds/18.2kg). Care should also be taken not to drop the flywheel
onto the frame below, as the paintwork will be damaged.
5. The chain can now be eased off over the front chain sprocket.
6. The flywheel is replaced by following steps 1 to 5 in reverse.
7. To Tension the chain, turn the chain tensioning bolts on both sides of the frame by the
same amount to ensure correct alignment. Continue to adjust in small amounts until the
chain slack is eliminated and the flywheel can rotate freely without pulling the pedals
around with it.
Replacing the Chain
1. Follow the procedures shown above for removing the outer chain guard.
2. Follow the procedures shown above for removing the flywheel.
3. Replace with new chain in a similar fashion and repeat the procedures above in reverse to
re-assemble.
4. To Tension the chain, turn the chain tensioning bolts on both sides of the frame by the
same amount to ensure correct alignment (Check the alignment by counting the marks on
the flywheel bracket on both sides of the frame). Continue to adjust in small amounts
17
until the chain slack is eliminated and the flywheel can rotate freely without pulling the
pedals around with it.
Replacing the Handlebars
1. NOTE: Your X-Bike Indoor Performance Bike has been fitted with 580mm long
handlebars as standard. You must ensure that the new bars to be fitted are within the
recommended maximum length of 580mm with a tube wall thickness not less than
3.2mm and are the correct diameter 25.4mm at the clamping section.
2. As you will probably intend to use the existing Grip-shift™ mechanism, you should first
remove these parts from the existing assembly.
3. Remove the bar-ends by using a 6mm hex key to loosen the bolt under the clamp.
4. Carefully prise inside the rubber handlebar grips with a small flat head screwdriver and
spray some WD-40© or equivalent light oil spray. Ease the grips from either end of the
handlebars.
5. Using a 6mm hex key, loosen the 4 bolts from the handlebar clamp on the top of the XBars Handlebar System to release the grip on the handlebar.
6. Twist the handlebar to expose the bolt holding the Grip-shift™ and using a 2.5mm hex
key loosen this bolt. Slide the assembly off the end of the bars.
7. Remove the 4 bolts from the handlebar clamp on the top of the X-Bars Handlebar
System. Remove the bars from the clamp housing.
8. Fit the new bars ensuring that the orientation of the bar sweep is faced toward the rider as
shown. Replace the clamp cap and leave slightly loose until the Grip-shift™ has been
refitted and tightened.
9. The Grip-shift™ should be refitted to the right side of the bars ensuring that the cable exit
is facing back toward the user with about 5 to 10mm clearance between it and the top of
the cover.
Note the orientation
of the handlebar and
bar ends.
10. Tighten the 4 clamp bolts ensuring a) that the marked clamping area of the bars is central
within the clamp and b) the clamp is tightened evenly by all 4 bolts (This can be verified
by checking the width of the gap on both sides of the bars – it should be the same).
11. Using conventional hair spray, apply a film of spray to the inside of the grips before
fitting onto the ends of the handlebars. The hairspray dries rather quickly and it is
recommended to get the grips in place without delay ensuring to leave enough space at
the end of the bar for the bar ends. (The reason for the hair spray is that it acts briefly as a
lubricant but then dries to create a good grip with the bar).
12. Refit the bar-ends and fully tighten all points before riding the bike.
Replacing the Grip-shift™
1. For removal of the old Grip-shift™, follow procedures 3 to 7 within the section for
“Changing the handlebars” above. As the Grip-shift™ is removed from the right side
only, you do not nave to touch the left side of the handlebars.
18
2. Using a 6mm hex key, loosen the bolt at the bottom of the V-Brake to release the
resistance cable.
3. Pull the resistance cable out of the assembly and all the way through the outer sleeve at
the top of the bike (You will have to cut off the protective nipple at the end of the cable
using a snips in order pull it through the sleeve).
4. Ensure that you only use recommended replacement parts as other units may not perform
as intended and will affect the warranty on the bike.
5. From the new Grip-shift™, feed the cable down through the outer sleeve and in through
the V-Brake assembly. (Fit a new protective nipple to the end of the cable by squeezing
with pliers).
6. Place the handlebars back into the top clamp and tighten up by following procedures 8 to
12 within the section for “Replacing the Handlebars” above.
7. To set the resistance, turn the Grip-shift™ fully clockwise to the minimum resistance
setting. Using one hand, compress the 2 pads of the V-Brake to just make contact with
the flywheel. Pull the excess cable until it is tight in the cable clamp. Retighten the bolt to
secure the cable.
8. The resistance is set, when the minimum setting is free from contact with the flywheel
and position 2 just makes contact.
Removing Pedal Crank Arms
Left Crank Arm
1. Use an 8mm Hex key to remove the pedal crank bolt.
2. Thread a bicycle crank arm puller onto the crank arm shaft.
3. As you tighten the crank arm puller on the shaft, the crank arm will be extracted from the
crank arm shaft. Remove the crank arm from the frame.
4. Apply a thin coat of grease on the right bottom bracket shaft and install the right crank
arm on the bottom bracket spindle. Align the right crank arm 180º from the right crank
arm and push the crank arm onto the crank arm shaft.
5. Apply 1-2 drops of Loctite® 222 on the left crank arm bolt threads. Install the crank arm
bolt and tighten to secure the crank arm. Rotate the pedals a few revolutions and then
