Increasing the resistance on a DP 400 Exercise bike

This bike has got to be 20 years old. It still works beautifully, including the electronic display, but I can't make the tension on the peddling increase. It seems the tension wire is not connected to anything underneath. Anybody have an instruction manual, or have an idea what part is missing? is it wired to the cog, or something else? We want to give it away to a Senior Center, but we have to make sure it works first!

20 years old! wow vintage ha well it is actually connected my friend but ur bike is well a little oldy for more resistance u see as the bike gets older the wire to provide the tension losses its tension factor or rather its ability to provide tension like our tendons and ligaments so my friend either change the wire if u can or better change the bike lol

Ni-Trac VA-500 exercise bike ( which I bought 2nd hand, in good condition) resistance has stopped working


If it was clicking the resistance motor is stuffed replace it they are quite cheap and easy done, but also make sure the flywheel is tight as they loosen over time as well. You'll need the crank tool, I made one from a m20 metric fine thread and drilled and tapped but you could probably get one from a local cycle shop. Easy job, worth doing these bikes are real nice ??

Resistance settings not working on fitnex r70 magnetic resistance exercise bike


If this is a new bike that may be the way it is. If it worked differently in the past, you may be looking at a busted tension motor or faulty brake.

Slight noise in level 1 resistance, then resistance won't change at all


if you are using the Normal charger AC, try to see if are O.K measure with DMM the output(see the laber for Output voltage VDC)
2) If you are using the Batteries , replace by new ones Type ALKALINE, very important. Clean very well the springs and tight, use electronic cleaner contacts, see if there are some wires loose or desolder.
3) If everything is o.k See for the small motor inside (this regulate the resistance) if working good, or the steel cable is broken, or missing or the motor is faulty, replace or repair.
Blessing.

What are the different resistances on exercise bikes?


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.

No change in resistance


IF you have the one i have, there is a knob with two connected arrows and a plus and minus sign. turn toward the plus, more resistance, turn toward the minus, less resistance.

Electronics malfunctioning on stationary bike


Something is obviously wrong with the electronics, and unless you find an electronics hobbyist who is willing and able to fix it you would need a new unit. To find out whether a replacement is available contact Bollinger (which apparently no longer makes exercise bikes): http://www.bollingerfitness.com/contact.html
