CONGRATULATIONS!
You have just become a valued LeMond Fitness customer. Our team is committed to making your cycling
experience fun and rewarding – offering you detailed product information, fitness advice, and direct
customer support you can depend on. We want to thank you for purchasing the exciting LeMond Revolution
bike trainer.
The Revolution has been tested and is endorsed by some of America’s top cyclists. Our company founder,
Greg LeMond, inspired a design for a new bike trainer, and the result is truly remarkable. Greg’s story is
one of courage and heroic accomplishment. In 1986, Greg became the first American to win the longest
and most physically demanding event in the world–the Tour de France. Only nine months later in April
of 1987, he narrowly escaped death when he was accidentally shot in a hunting accident. During a long
and painful rehabilitation, he set a goal that many considered inconceivable; to win the Tour de France
again. In 1989, he achieved that goal, and then proved it was no mere stroke of luck by winning the Tour
a third time in 1990.
Greg’s passion for cycling combined with exceptional design innovation establish the Revolution as
the new standard in bike trainers. Every component of the Revolution has been designed to be more
user-friendly than any other trainer on the market and deliver an incredible workout. Whether you are a
beginning fitness enthusiast or a highly conditioned athlete you will immediately feel the difference.
The Revolution offers a fantastic workout combined with unparalleled ease of use and road-like ride feel.
It’s small size means you can use it anywhere you can fit your bike, and it can easily be stored out of the
way when not in use. We feel confident that the Revolution will give you the workout and enjoyment you
want and need.
This Owner’s Manual will help you get the most enjoyment from your new Revolution bike trainer. In
the following pages you will find important safety and usage instructions as well as some workout tips
to help you get the most out of your exercise routine. If you have any questions about this information,
please call us at (425) 482-6773 and we will be happy to assist you. To help us answer your questions
quickly, please have the serial number of your bike trainer ready when you call. The serial number of your
trainer is located on the belt cover beneath the pulley assembly.

SAFE use GUIDELINES
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
!
This symbol and/or the word “warning” in bold indicate a potential
for property damage or personal injury. Take note of important operating, servicing or maintenance instructions
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS EXERCISE EQUIPMENT
!
THESE GUIDELINES ARE DIRECTED TO YOU, AS THE OWNER OF THIS EXERCISE
EQUIPMENT. YOU SHOULD INSIST THAT ALL USERS FOLLOW THE SAME GUIDELINES. PLEASE MAKE THIS MANUAL AVAILABLE TO ALL USERS.
• The Revolution bike trainer is intended for indoor cardiovascular fitness training and may be used
in group or individual settings. Use this equipment ONLY for its intended use as described in this
manual.
• DO NOT attempt to ride at high pedal speeds or in a standing position until you have practiced
and are comfortable riding at slower pedal speeds.
• This unit is NOT equipped with any type of brake system. If the fan and pulley are spinning let
them spin freely until stopped. DO NOT attempt to stop the fan or pulley by hand, serious injury
may occur.
• The freehub system allows the fan and pulley to spin freely without pedal movement. DO NOT
attempt to dismount the bike while the fan and pulley are spinning, wait for the Revolution to
coast to a stop.
• Do not expose any part of your body or clothing to ANY moving parts (chain drive, pulley, belt
drive, fan) as possible injury may occur.
• Keep unsupervised children away from this equipment when not in use.
• Keep children and pets away from this equipment while in use.
• Never drop or insert any object into any opening on the exercise equipment.
• Only use this equipment on a stable, level floor.
• Always use the leveling feet to maintain four (4) points of contact with the floor for stability of the
equipment. (p. 11)
• Follow the instructions for safe use of the equipment; including proper mounting of your bicycle.
• Securely clamping the bike to the Revolution with the cam action retention device takes considerable force. If you can fully close the cam lever without wrapping your fingers around the seat
stay or chain stay for leverage, the lever does not leave a clear imprint in the palm of your hand,
and the serrations on the wheel fastener do not emboss the surfaces of the dropouts, the tension
is insufficient. Open the lever; turn the tension adjusting nut clockwise a quarter turn; then try
again. (p. 12)
6
SAFE use GUIDELINES
• DO NOT attempt to adjust any part of your bike or the Revolution while riding or sitting on the
bike.
• Obtain a complete physical examination from your medical doctor and enlist a health/fitness professional’s aid in developing an exercise program suitable for your current health status.
• When working out for the first time, start out slowly for a minimum of five minutes. After your
muscles are warmed up, gradually increase the pedaling rate to a speed that allows you to attain
your target training zone.
• Always exercise in a well ventilated open area to maintain a safe core temperature. We recommend using a fan to circulate air.
• The speed and duration of your exercise program should always be subject to how you feel. Never
permit peer pressure to exceed your personal judgment while exercising.
• Overweight or severely unconditioned individuals should be particularly cautious when using
the bike trainer 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.
• Although all equipment manufactured by LeMond Fitness, Inc. has been thoroughly inspected
by the manufacturing facility prior to shipment, proper assembly and regular maintenance are
required to ensure safety. Maintenance is the sole responsibility of the owner.
• When the Revolution is in use the fan and pulley assembly will be spinning at high speeds. For safe
operation, allow at least three (3) feet (1m) of free space on all sides of the unit and the bicycle
mounted on it. Failure to do so can cause serious injury.
The safety level of this equipment can only be maintained by following the guidelines in this manual and
examining the equipment regularly for damage and wear. Damaged or inoperable components should
be replaced immediately and the equipment should not be used until it is repaired.
Failure to follow all guidelines above may compromise your exercise experience, expose you and others
to injury, and reduce the longevity of the equipment

bicycle mounting instructions
mounting your bicycle to the Lemond revolution
Note: The LeMond Revolution is shipped from the factory equipped with a Shimano®/SRAM® compatible
10-speed cassette. If your bike is equipped with a 9-speed Shimano®/SRAM® derailleur or Campagnolo® derailleur please follow the instructions on page 19 to change cassettes and/or cassette adapters.
If you are unsure about the type of derailleur installed on your bike please consult the documentation
for your bicycle or visit your local bike specialist to ensure proper compatibility with the Revolution.
1.
Shift the chain on your bicycle to the smallest sprocket on the rear cassette.
2.
Open the rear brake calipers on your bicycle and remove the rear wheel.
warning: consult the manufacturer’s documentation for your bicycle or your
local bike specialist if you are unsure about the correct procedure for removing the rear wheel of your bicycle.
!
3.
Loosen the quick-release axle on the Revolution and locate the axle spacer on the fan side of the
axle. Be sure to position the spacer properly based on the type of bicycle you are using. (See Figure 3.1)

Continue holding the seat down and lift the front tire off the ground. This will ensure that the axle is
seated squarely in the dropouts. Both the left and right dropouts should be in contact with the axle
of the Revolution.
Note: Before securing the quick release axle ensure that the bicycle is squarely seated onto the Revolution
by lightly pushing the seat from side to side. If the dropouts do not shift on the axle then the bicycle is
secure and the axle can be tightened. If the bicycle seems unstable return to step 4 above and repeat
the process.

riding the revolution
!
Warning: Use caution when mounting and riding your bicycle on the revolution
for the first time. Start pedaling slowly to get a feel for the equipment. Riding
the Revolution feels a lot like riding on the road, but takes a few minutes to get
used to. Shift through the gears to ensure clean and proper shifting. It should
not be necessary to adjust your derailleur to work with the Revolution,
however, subtle differences in bicycles exist and may make shifting feel different.
Adjusting the fit
If your bicycle is set up properly for your body then you should not need to make any adjustments prior
to first use with the Revolution. If you are unsure about the setup of your bicycle please visit your local
bike shop prior to using it with your LeMond Revolution.
Basic Operation
• With your bike safely installed on the Revolution (see instructions on p.12), mount the bicycle normally and begin to pedal.
!
warning: during your first use of the revolution start pedaling slowly at first
to get a feel for the equipment. shift through the gears on your bike at a slow
pedaling pace to ensure overall stability prior to exerting heavy pedal force.
• We designed the Revolution to be stable in all riding conditions, including standing up, however use
caution when pedaling standing up as the bike and trainer can tilt and become unbalanced.
• Just like riding outside, pedaling resistance on the Revolution is determined by how hard you pedal.
If you want to train harder–pedal harder.
!
warning: IF AT ANY TIME DURING YOUR WORKOUT, YOU FEEL 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.
• Before dismounting, allow the Revolution to spin down and stop. The trainer is not equipped with a
brake, and therefore the fan and pulley will continue to spin after pedaling has stopped.
!
warning: do not attempt to slow or stop the pulley or fan! any attempt to slow
or stop the trainer can result in serious injury.

general exercise guidelines
GENERAL EXERCISE GUIDELINES
Setting A Goal
The first step to a successful exercise program is to set realistic goals and objectives. Do you want an
exercise program that is geared to build muscle, maintain muscle tone, increase aerobic capacity, or
lose weight? In order to ensure that you fully receive all the benefits of a sound exercise program, you
need to first identify the existence (if any) of risk factors that may influence the design of your exercise
program. Based upon a comprehensive analysis of your personal exercise needs and interests, you
should then develop (or have developed for you by a competent or trained professional) an individualized program of exercise that is enjoyable and easy, yet challenging. Your greatest health benefit will
come from a lifestyle change that encourages a lifetime of physical activity.
One way to guarantee success in reaching your goal is to eat correctly. A well-rounded diet provides the
proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and water necessary for good health. If you are unsure
of your dietary needs, seek the advise of your physician, an exercise professional, or visit your local bookstore for more information on nutrition.
FLEXIBILITY TRAINING*
Achieving and maintaining adequate range of motion should always be an objective of a comprehensive exercise program. The warm-up phase of your exercise session should include some type of light
warm-up activity to increase both your heart rate and your body temperature, which is then followed by
flexibility exercises that are specifically designed to stretch the musculature around your body’s major
skeletal joints. Attempting to stretch a cold muscle can be dangerous to the soft tissues surrounding the
muscle. No matter how controlled the movement, forcing a muscle through a full range of motion (and
beyond) without appropriately warming up is both unsafe and counterproductive.
A general exercise program for achieving and maintaining flexibility should adhere to the following
guidelines:
• Frequency
Daily
• Intensity
To a position of mild discomfort
• Duration
10-30 seconds for each stretch
• Repetitions
2-6 for each stretch
• Type
Static, with a major emphasis on the low back and hamstring areas
because of the high prevalence of low-back pain syndrome in our
society.
16
general exercise guidelines
Exercise Principles *
The American College of Sports Medicine has developed a position paper concerning exercise programs
for healthy adults and the need for guidelines. The following recommendations concern the quantity
and quality of exercise training for developing and maintaining cardiovascular fitness in a healthy adult:
• Frequency
3 to 5 days per week
• Intensity 50% - 85% of maximum oxygen uptake (VO2 max)
• Duration 20 to 60 minutes of continuous aerobic activity
• Mode of Activity
Any activity that uses the large muscle groups, that can be maintained
continuously, and is rhythmic and aerobic in nature.
• Rate of Progression Initial Conditioning: - 4 to 6 weeks; low end intensity (40% - 60% VO2
max); low end duration (15 to 20 minutes).
Improvement Stage: - 6 weeks to 6 months; moderate intensity; moderate duration.
Maintenance Stage: - 6 months plus; moderate to high intensity; moderate to high duration.

MAINTENANCE instructions
Maintenance instructions
Generally speaking, the LeMond Revolution does not require regular maintenance. However, we do
recommend that you maintain a regular maintenance schedule on the bicycle you are using with the
Revolution. Please consult your local bike mechanic for a recommended maintenance schedule.
warning: do not attempt to clean your bicycle while it is mounted on the
Revolution. Chain and drivetrain degreasers can penetrate sealed bearings and
damage the equipment.
!
In addition to regular bike maintenance we recommend that you perform the following:
• Wipe down the trainer after each use to prevent dust and sweat buildup on the unit.
• Inspect the axle skewer before each use to ensure that the bike is securely mounted.
• Check the leveling feet weekly to ensure the stability of the Revolution.
• Inspect the belt for wear weekly.
Note: It is normal to see black wax like flakes on and near the belt for the first 40-60 hours of use.
• Check the fan shroud and belt cover for tightness monthly, if either cover is loose tighten the appropriate fasteners.

2.
Readjust your derailleur to access the largest sprocket.
Remove 1-3 links from your chain to decrease the downward throw of your rear derailleur.
Rear derailleur skips shifts while riding
Note: We designed the Revolution to be compatible with a large variety of bicycles, however, there are some
cases where the derailleur may not be fully compatible with the cassette. If skipped and missed shifts
are limiting the effectivity of your workout please follow the steps below.

Check that the bicycle is mounted properly according to the instructions in this manual. (p. 12)
Check that the derailleur and cassette styles match (Shimano®/SRAM® with Shimano®/SRAM® or
Campagnolo® with Campagnolo®). If they do not match, follow the steps in this manual to change
the cassette. (p. 19)
Check that the derailleur and cassette are set up for the same number of shifts (i.e. 10-speed derailleur with 10-speed cassette).
Make small adjustments to your derailleur to fine tune derailleur throw.
Check for chain stretch by measuring from the center of one rivet (pivot point) to the center of the
rivet 12 rivets away. If the distance is more than 3 1/16” you have a worn chain, and it should be
replaced. The cassette on your bicycle wheel should be inspected for wear as well.
