Being that I dont know what your background is....I would have to ask. Are you mechanically inclined to rake on this project?

Testimonial: "By "rake" do you mean to work on it myself? Yes, I would prefer to try to repair it myself or with my Husband's help, than to have to buy a whole new timer:) So, if you have any suggestions, I would definitely appreciate it:)"

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I need new brakes on my resistance caliper

You can probably replace them with regular bike break shoes.  If it is easy to remove them just take them to a bike shop (not a large chain store) and see if they can help.

SOURCE: Where can I get a speedo cable for a Tunturi

If it is just the inner cable and you don't need the housing then Napa Auto parts and others sell a universal cable kit that you can cut to fit and comes with a crimp tool for installing the square end on it.

It looks like the only cable FitnessRepairParts has for Tunturi Ergometers is a speedometer cable for serial numbers greater than 474100.

Where can iget info on ergometer


Never heard of a ergometer for a bicycle. You understand that an ergometer measures the workload, so you would have one on an exercise bike, or a bicycle trainer. There bicycle accessories, like a cyclecomputer, and you can wear a heart rate monitor. Go to a bike shop that sells fitness and bikes, they can hook you up.
