Question about Cycling
I have a ProForm G35 exercise bike. It comes with four pre-programed exercise routines on the console. The console is still operating and exhibits an increase in the resistance on the programs, but the pedals go around as if the chain was off a road bike. Just spins. How do I regain the resistance?
I looked into this thinking is must be a simple belt, or tention wheel, but these devices are much more complex than the average exercise machine. See the Recumbent selection here.
It appears that the tentioning device is a magnetic brake.
This would require that it be plugged into a power source and programmed to provide a desired tention.
I've never used one of these so I can't say what kind of programming options there are or where they are found.
Hope this helps.

There are three main types of resistances, the fan resistance used
to provide resistance with air they push as you pedal. The second type is the
belt resistance which uses a belt that runs through a brake providing
resistance for the exercise bikes. The third type is the magnetic exercise bike
which provides resistance which can easily be adjusted while riding the bike.
