CHAPTER 4: Using The Krankcycle
4.1 PROPER SET UP
The Krankcycle was designed explicitly for upper body and
cardiovascular training. To maximize exercise effectiveness and comfort,
the Krankcycle should be adjusted for each user and exercise position. The
instructions below describe one approach to adjusting the cycle to ensure
optimal user comfort and ideal body positioning: you may choose to adjust
the cycle differently.
CRANK HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
While seated on the Krankcycle, grab the upper crank axis with both hands,
press the height adjustment lever towards the outer edge of the crank axis,
lifting or lowering the crank axis until it is in line with the center of the
chest. Release the lever to lock into position. Crank handles should not hit
the thigh when rotated.
!WARNING! Make sure height adjustment mechanism is locked into position before you begin Kranking.
With your back straight, position yourself on the saddle so that there is a
slight bend in the elbow when the crank arm is in the furthest position away
from the body.
To Krank while standing, stand with your back straight and your feet
shoulder width apart. Position yourself so there is a slight bend in the elbow
when the crank arm is in the furthest position away from the body. Adjust
the crank height if necessary.

CHAPTER 4: Using The Krankcycle
4.2 HOW TO OPERATE
!WARNING! Do not operate this cycle with 2 people, equipment is
designed for individual use. Please stay clear of moving parts and place
both hands on the crank handles while exercising. Stop your workout in the
event a person is within reach of moving parts.
CHANGE CRANK ARM DIRECTION
To bring cranking direction from forward or reverse, bring crank arms to top
position, release rotation level, turn drive frame 180º and lock rotation lever
back into place (toward the word lock) and pivot crank arms back toward user.
STEP 1
STEP 2
STEP 3
STEP 4
STEP 5
STEP 6
Recommended cadence while exercising should be 60-90 RPM and the
user should never operate without resistance applied.
LOCKED
!WARNING! Make sure rotation adjustment lever is locked before you begin
Kranking. Make sure that no components or devices block the users movement.
4.3 HOW TO MOVE
RESISTANCE ADJUSTMENT
The preferred level of difficulty in Kranking (resistance) can be regulated in
fine increments by use of the resistance knob. To increase the resistance,
turn the resistance knob toward the “+” sign; to decrease the resistance,
turn the knob toward the “- “ sign.
IMPORTANT: To stop the flywheel
(wheel) while Kranking, turn the
resistance knob toward the “+” sign
until flywheel stops.
!WARNING! The flywheel will
continue to move even after you
stop Kranking. Always Krank in a
controlled manner and adjust your
desired cadence and resistance
according to your own abilities.
11
Bend your knees and lift the rear base of the Krankcycle using the integrated grips on each side of the base. Carefully move the cycle to the desired
location and then lower it. CAUTION: To reduce the risk of injury, use
extreme caution while moving the Krankcycle. Do not attempt to move it
over uneven surfaces and make sure you allow for a minimum of 20 inches
to the nearest equipment. When lifting the front of the unit, grab the metal
frame only – not the plastic base.
If the Krankcycle rocks on the floor after being set down, turn the
leveling feet (see diagram) underneath the front stabilizer until the rocking
motion is eliminated.
IMPORTANT: Please do not unscrew the leveling feet more than ½ inch!
!WARNING! The Krankcycle should be installed on a stable base and properly leveled before use.

CHAPTER 6: Preventative Maintenance
!WARNING! Regular maintenance must be performed on the Krankcycle for
optimal performance and longevity. Please read and follow all instructions
below. If the cycle is not maintained as described, components may wear
excessively and the cycle may become damaged. Improper maintenance will
void the warranty terms. If you have questions about maintenance, contact
your local distributor or go to www.matrixfitness.com.
Note: Many maintenance procedures require lubricant (ex. brake pad,
chains, and sprockets). Matrix recommends 3-IN-ONE oil.
6.1 DAILY MAINTENANCE
1. Make sure that the Krankcycle is level. If it rocks on your floor, turn
the leveling feet underneath the front stabilizer until the rocking motion is
eliminated (see page 11).
2. After each use, the cycle should be disinfected and cleaned to maintain
a hygienic environment. Clean cycle with mild soap and water or other
non-ammonia based all purpose cleaners. Apply cleaner to lint free cloth
and wipe crank handles, adjustment knobs and levers, base plate and the
seat. Do not pour liquids directly onto the equipment. Maintain a clean
environment around the cycle, free of dust and dirt.
6.2 WEEKLY MAINTENANCE
1. Apply a small amount of mild soap and water or other non-ammonia
based all purpose cleaner to a lint free cloth and thoroughly clean the
frame, crank handles, adjustment knobs and levers, seat, flywheel,
baseplate and plastic covers.
2. Check regular functions of cycle and consult the TROUBLESHOOTING
GUIDE (see page 13) if any problems exist.
6.3 MONTHLY MAINTENANCE
1. For optimal performance of the resistance system the following steps
should be taken:
a. Remove lower inside plastic cover by removing 6 socket head cap screws
with a 3mm ALLEN KEY WRENCH.
12
CHAPTER 6: Preventative Maintenance
b. Check brake pad setting by first turning the resistance knob toward the
“-“ sign as far as it will go (minimum braking effect). The brake pad should
have approximately a credit card thickness between it and the flywheel and
the brake pad should feel slightly loose around its pivot. If adjustment is
required see TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE (see page 13).
b. Thoroughly wipe down around all internal components and look for signs
of excessive wear or damage.
c. Lubricate both upper and lower drive chains. Clean excess.
d. Replace drive chains if necessary
e. Replace all plastic covers and RIGHT crank arm
c. Check brake pad for signs of wear and the presence of lubrication. If the
brake pad requires lubrication, first adjust the resistance knob so the brake
pad is just slightly touching the flywheel. Then slowly rotate the flywheel
with one hand while applying a small amount of lubricant on the flywheel
just behind the brake pad (A) on the in-going side. Wipe off excess.
6.5 TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Follow the steps below if any problems are discovered in the weekly
function test.
CRANK ARMS NOT SYNCHRONIZED
