1.2
SETUP
Read the entire Operation Manual before setting up the exercise bike.
WHERE
TO
PLACE
THE
EXERCISE BIKE
Following all safety instructions in Section 1.1, move the bike to the location in which it will be used. See Section 7, titled
Specifications, for the dimensions of the footprint. Allow a distance of four feet, or 120 centimeters, between the bike and
other objects or surfaces on either side.
HOW
TO
STABILIZE
THE
EXERCISE BIKE
After placing the bike in position, check the unit's stability by attempting to rock it in all directions. Any slight rocking indicates
that the unit must be leveled. Determine which foot is not resting completely on the floor. Loosen the jam nut with an open-end
17mm wrench, and rotate the stabilizing foot to lower it. Verify that the bike is stable, and repeat the adjustment as necessary
until the unit no longer rocks. Lock the adjustment by tightening the jam nut against the stabilizer bar.
HOW
TO
ADJUST
THE
SEAT
Proper seat positioning minimizes unecessary leg muscle fatigue. To determine whether or not the seat requires adjustment,
sit on it and place the balls of the feet on the pedals. The knee should bend slightly when the pedal is at the furthest point in
its rotation, relative to the body. The user should be able to pedal without locking the knees or shifting in the seat.
Adjusting the seat on the upright bike: The bike post features a vertical locking pin seat adjustment system, which
makes it easy and safe to change the height of the seat quickly.
To raise the seat, first get off the bike. Hold the seat, turn the spring-loaded knob on the right of the seat post
once counterclockwise to loosen it, and pull out the knob to unlock the post from its present position. Pull the seat
upward to the desired height, and release the knob to let it lock into place. Turn the knob once clockwise to tighten it.
Test and re-adjust the seat height as necessary.
To lower the seat, first get off the bike. Hold the seat, turn the spring-loaded knob on the right of the seat post
once counterclockwise to loosen it, and pull out the knob to unlock the post from its present position. Let the seat slide
down to the desired height, and release the knob to let it lock into place. Turn the knob once clockwise to tighten it. Test
and re-adjust the seat height as necessary.
CAUTION: When using the height adjustment mechanism to change the height of a partially raised seat,
hold the seat to prevent it from falling on the hand.
10
Adjusting the seat on the recumbent bike: Lift the spring-loaded adjusting handle located on the right side of the seat.
Slide the seat forward or backward as necessary to the proper position and release the handle to complete engagement.
Gently rock the seat forward and backward to ensure that it is locked into place. Check the seat distance again and readjust it if necessary.
Note: If the seat carriage rocks excessively, use a wrench to loosen the jam nut (A) on either side of the seat carriage.
With another wrench, tighten the adjustment roller on the inside of the carriage until it is snug, but do not over-tighten it.
Then, while holding the roller in place, tighten the lock nut. Repeat the procedure for the other side of the seat carriage.
CAUTION: Do not attempt to adjust the seat while pedaling the bike. Doing so, or failing to insert the
seat pin completely may result in an uncomfortable workout or cause injury.
HOW
TO
ADJUST
THE
PEDAL STRAPS
The bike pedal safety straps keep the user's shoes on the pedals during a workout. The straps should fit comfortably, but
they also should be tight enough to prevent shoes from slipping at any point in the pedaling rotation. Before working out,
the user should test and adjust the tightness of the straps.
The straps can be adjusted to fit a variety of shoe sizes. Each strap is held in place by a spring-loaded clip that is connected to the outer edge of each pedal. To tighten a strap, simply pull the loose end of the strap down. It automatically
locks into place with each pull. To loosen a strap, press down on the top of the clip and pull the strap up. Release the clip
to lock the strap into place. Test the adjustment, and change if necessary.
STARTING UP THE BIKE
See Section 7, titled Specifications, for power requirements. Insert the AC adapter into an electrical outlet that has been
properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
To power up the exercise bike, simply start pedaling or press any key on the console. Once the unit’s power is on, the
console display lights up, making it possible to select a workout or to begin a MANUAL workout using QUICK START

THE WORKOUTS
WORKOUT OVERVIEWS
This section lists the exercise bike’s pre-programmed workouts. For more detailed information, see Section 3.2, titled
Setting Up and Using the Workouts.
QUICK START MANUAL MODE is the fastest way to begin exercising, and it bypasses the steps involved in selecting a
specific workout program. After the START key is pressed, a constant-level workout begins. The resistance level does
not change automatically.
INTERVAL combines “hills” and “valleys” of different resistance levels, which is proven to provide effective,
time-efficient cardiovascular results.
RANDOM is an interval training workout for which the user selects a computer-generated profile of varying intensity
levels.
MANUAL is a workout in which the resistance level does not change automatically.
PEAK is intended to burn fat by building up to, and maintaining, a constant level of resistance throughout the workout.
SLOPE gradually increases the intensity throughout the workout duration. It is intended to strengthen the heart, as well
as the major muscle groups that are most active during the workout, such as the leg muscle groups.
CHALLENGE begins at a high resistance level and maintains this level throughout the duration.
3.2
SETTING UP AND USING
THE
WORKOUTS
To activate the console, press any key, or simply start pedaling. When the console display lights up, either select
QUICK START MANUAL MODE, or select a specific workout. Setting up a specific workout involves three steps, which
are described in this section:
1. Selecting a workout
2. Entering a workout duration
3. Selecting a difficulty level
4. Starting the workout (pressing START)
SELECTING AND USING QUICK START MANUAL MODE
Press the START key to begin a 30-minute MANUAL workout immediately. Once the workout is in progress, it is possible
to change the resistance level using the ARROW keys.
SELECTING A WORKOUT
For INTERVAL, MANUAL, PEAK, SLOPE, and CHALLENGE: Press the ARROW KEYS until the LED display for the
desired workout lights up. Then, press ENTER to confirm the workout selection.
For RANDOM: Press the ARROW KEYS until the LED display for the RANDOM workout lights up. Then, press ENTER. The
first computer-generated RANDOM workout profile appears in the the DOT MATRIX DISPLAY. To accept this profile, press
ENTER. To view another profile, press an ARROW key. Continue to press the ARROW key until a desired profile appears.
Then, press ENTER to accept the profile.
ENTERING A DURATION
After a workout is selected, the top DATA WINDOW flashes a default workout duration of 30 minutes. Press ENTER to
accept the default. Or, to change the duration, use the ARROW keys. Then, when the desired duration appears in the
DATA WINDOW, press ENTER to accept the duration. It is not possible to change the duration of a workout-in-progress.
15
SELECTING A DIFFICULTY LEVEL
After a duration is entered, the bottom DATA WINDOW flashes a default difficulty level of “1”, which is the easiest of the
nine difficulty levels. Press ENTER to accept the default. Or, to change the level, use the ARROW keys. Then, when the
desired level appears in the DATA WINDOW, press ENTER to accept the duration.
Each of the nine difficulty levels corresponds to a range of resistance levels as seen in the table below. Resistance
levels are applied to each individual interval within a workout profile. See Section 3.3, titled Workout Descriptions for more
information. While the workout is in progress, it is possible to change the resistance level of the current interval. That
change remains in effect for the duration of the interval. See the topic titled Adjusting the Intensity Level in this section.

STARTING A WORKOUT
After accepting a difficulty level, press START to begin the workout.
ADJUSTING
THE
RESISTANCE LEVEL OF AN INTERVAL
The exercise bike features 16 resistance levels, with “1” being the easiest and “16” being the most
difficult. While a workout is in progress, it is possible to change the resistance level of the current interval. To do so, simply press the UP or DOWN ARROW key repeatedly until the DATA DISPLAY window shows the desired level. That
change remains in effect for the duration of the interval only.
Note: With the exercise bike’s braking resistance feature, the resistance level increases proportionally with the pedaling speed.
PAUSING A WORKOUT
To pause a workout-in-progress, press the STOP key, or simply stop pedaling for 25 seconds. A workout can remain in pause
mode for a maximum duration of five minutes. If a paused workout is not resumed before the five-minute pause duration
ends, the console shuts down, and the paused workout information is lost. To resume a paused workout, press the START
key or simply begin pedaling again.
RESETTING A WORKOUT
To reset a workout, press the STOP key, and hold it for three seconds. This deletes the current workout and makes it possible
to set up a new workout.
REVIEWING A COMPLETED WORKOUT
When a workout reaches the end of its duration, the console emits four consecutive beeps. At this point, it is possible to
review summary data for the completed workout, includng total calories burned and distance traveled, by pressing the
SCROLL key and reading the results in the DATA WINDOWS. Afterward, press the STOP key to return to the workout-select
mode.
16
USING
THE
HEART RATE ZONE
TO
MAXIMIZE WORKOUT BENEFITS
Research shows that keeping the heart rate within a certain range while exercising promotes muscular and cardiovascular
conditioning for maximum health benefits. This range is between 60 percent and 85 percent of a given user’s theoretical
maximum heart rate. The maximum rate varies by age. To calculate it, subtract the user’s age from the number 220.
For example, the theoretical maximum heart rate for a 35-year-old user would be 185 beats per minute (bpm) because
220-35=185. Therefore, the optimal heart rate range or zone for a 35-year-old user would be between 111 bpm
(185 x .60) and 157 bpm (185 x .85).
NOTE: Consulting a fitness trainer is recommended for defining specific fitness goals and designing a workout program.
To monitor the heart rate during a workout, feel the pulse in the wrist or the carotid artery in the neck while looking at a
watch. Count the number of pulse beats within one minute.
SWITCHING
THE
CONSOLE DISPLAY TO METRIC UNITS
By default, the bike’s console displays the workout statistic of distance in English units. It is possible to switch to metric
units. When the console is shut down, remove the four screws that attach the console to the console support assembly
column. Carefully turn the console upside down and flip the “English/Metric” switch that appears in the back of the console to the “Metric” setting. Re-attach the console to the support assembly column. Restart the bike.
3.3 WORKOUT DESCRIPTIONS
INTERVAL
This workout combines “hills” and “valleys” of alternating high- and low-resistance levels. Raising and decreasing the
heart rate in this manner is proven to provide effective, time-efficient fitness results. Each interval is of equal duration,
and the overall duration of the workout determines the duration of the intervals. As the profile diagram indicates, the
workout begins with a low-resistance warm-up and ends with a low-resistance cool-down.
RANDOM
When the user selects a RANDOM workout, the bike computer automatically generates various profiles, each offering a
different combination of resistance levels. This choice of profiles adds variety to the workout routine.
17
MANUAL
MANUAL is a workout in which the resistance level does not change automatically. When a MANUAL workout is in
progress, the user can vary the resistance levels by pressing the UP and DOWN ARROW keys.
PEAK
PEAK is intended to burn fat by maintaining a constant level of resistance throughout the workout. As the profile diagram
indicates, the resistance level begins gradually, maintains a plateau and then gradually declines.
SLOPE
SLOPE gradually increases the intensity throughout the workout duration. It is intended to strengthen the heart, as well
as the major muscle groups that are most active during the workout, such as the leg muscle groups. As the profile diagram indicates, the workout starts at a low resistance level, builds to a peak and and with a low-level cool-down interval.
CHALLENGE
CHALLENGE begins at a high resistance level and maintains this level throughout the duration. As the profile diagram
indicates, the workout begins at a high level and continues for most of the duration at a high plateau.
