Question about Cycling
Unlike the original and current Airdyne bikes, the Windsprint has a gear shift on the right handle bar that shifts very similar to the way a motorcycle shifts. This is problem #1. The next issue concerns the chain, belt and peddle drive assembly. The chain recently popped off after a nephew peddled the bike backwards. The chain was reattached, however, when the peddles are engaged, the fan (as you know the source of the resistance in Schwinn Airdyne bikes) fails to turn. I do not have a manual and am not mechanically inclined. I am guessing at everything I am undertaking with the bike. It is an excellent bike otherwise.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

There may be some chain links that do not move freely. turn the pedal slowly backwards and check for siezed links, as it goes through the deraileur.
A worn chain can do this as well, unfortunately you usually have to change the chain and sprocket cluster as a pair. If you just put a new chain on a similar problem can occur.
