Here is a link with info on this and the link below is supposed to be a link for a replacement wheel/tire that will work.

The Air Free Savannah Cruiser 27 x 1 3/8 (17-18mm) Urethane Airless Bicycle tire will fit the PTS Turbo Trainer perfectly. In Eleven years, not one person has ever sent one back, nor has one person ever said they couldn't get it on. The Savannah tire was designed to fit a bicycle, but it has the right height off of the rim and it squeezes into the rim perfectly and all owners report that they are able to ride again with out any problems.

SOURCE: HX-P4241W appears yellow. Left and Right of screen are yellow

Yellow is the lack of blue. It can happen when you are running your contrast - which is your overall light level - too high.

Try turning down your contrast. On CRT tech, contrast should always be run at half what the factory allows as full, on the user controls. Full up is what calibrators call Torch Mode, and is NOT the way to get performance to be in the linear operating range of CRT tech.

If your sides are more yellow than your middle, your set may need lenstriping. Mild yellow on the sides is not uncommon, and usually not noticed. But heavy yellow on the sides would indicate that the blue image needs work on white field uniformity.

Yellow is the lack of blue, in CRT tech.

Why won't the seat adjustment on recumbent bike tighten sufficiently?

Recumbent bike seats adjust forward and backward along a track, if the adjustment does not lock into place it could be that the pin is just not lining up with the seat adjustment bracket. Or that it needs replaced.

Now if you have an upright bike, there is a bracket right under the seat that hugs the seat post. You need to tighten the bolt on that bracket and it should fix the problem.

In some cases the thread on that bolt could be worn out, you will need to replace the bolt, buy a new seat bracket or just get yourself a new seat.

Hope this helps you out in any way.
If you think you need any further help please do not hesitate to call us 888-713-2880 or talk to us by chat at

We can help you troubleshoot or get that new seat if you need it!
Otherwise, good luck on the repair :)

What are the benefits of recumbent exercise bike?

Recumbent exercise bikes offer a few benefits. First of all, they have lower back support, which is important for people with low back problems. Another benefit is that put less pressure on the knees compared to other exercise bikes. Moreover, if you have limited space available, these chairs are a great choice since they are very compact.

What are the different types of exercise bikes?

There are three types of exercise bikes: upright bikes, dual-action bikes, and recumbent bikes. Upright bikes are standard exercise bikes that allow you to only use your legs (regular bicycling movement). Dual-action bikes allow you to workout your upper body as well by providing moveable handlebars. Recumbent bikes feature a bucket seat and the ability to recline while pedaling.

Hey im55830,

I was the production foreman for Pro Tec way back when, so hopefully I can help you a little.

As for the tire, depending on the actual production date and model, most of them were manufactured in house, so unless someone happens to have a supply stashed somewhere there is no direct replacement.

It is possible, and some of the first ones built did, use a normal tubed bicycle tire. We switched from those because under heavy use they did wear faster than we liked. So that is one option. I understand there maybe a website that carries solid tires that will work. Another option is to attempt to make a tire. The material should be available at a home repair store, if you took the tire in and tried to match the tubing. This is a last resort in my opinion but it is feasible.

Honestly I think I would try a normal tire or solid first. You should be able to remove the wheel and take it to a bicycle shop. It will need a liner to protect the inner tube. If you need I can walk you through removing and reinstalling the wheel.

As for the computer. For the life of me I can't remember the brand we used. I am guessing you have the handlebar mounted one with a small square head, as opposed to the fully computerised 2000 model.

Replacing it may be a bit of a problem. The computer set up was a stock bicycle computer. However we made a jumper wire to accomidate the length of the frame that plugged into the sensor lead and the computer mount.

As a stock item the sensor was connected to the mount so it involved cutting the wires, soldering connectors onto both the cut end of the mount and sensor. Then making another wire with connectors to run from under the seat along the frame and to where the sensor is mounted near the wheel. In theory any new bicycle computer could be used to replace the old one.

If you aren't up for that task, there's the possibility that there is some sort of wireless system available.

To install it you would need to lossen or remove the wheel cover to mount the other half of the sensor unit to the spokes. Depending on when the bike was manufactured this can range for very easy to a bit tricky.

Probably not everything you wanted to hear but I hope it helps
