SOURCE: Have a Schwinn xr7 exerciser bike, need new pedals or straps

I am not sure what type of bike you have (did not bother looking it up), but I myself too have a schwinn exercise bike (recumbent) and the straps recently broke, and when I sent customer service an email from their site they said they sell replacement straps.

I included the kind of bike I had when I inquired so the price given to me might be exclusive to my bike only, so you'll have to contact customer support yourself to see if they sell replacement straps for your bike and if so how much.

SOURCE: bike pedal arm keeps falling off as i pedal.

You need a new crank arm. If you ride with the nut loosened what happens is the square part of the bottom bracket shaft wears the hole out in the aluminum crank and it no longer fits snugly no matter how much you tighten it down.

SOURCE: My Reebok RB1 exercise bike is not increasing

Hello,you only have to take the peddles off. The right one comes of anti- clockwise, and the left one comes of clockwise. There is a large plastic ring on the cover at the place where the peddle shaft goes in. get a screwdriver into this and prise it of, this will allow enough for the cover to come of. Mines is the same not enough power to pull cable.

SOURCE: No resistance when I pedal the stationary exercise bike


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.

I think I may be in the wrong place!

whilst pedaling, at the top of the pedal stroke, the knee should be positioned behind the axle of the pedal. This is so that as the pedal descends, the knee is not exerting damaging forces on the ligaments/joint. Force application should lead the pedal to go downwards without going hehind the position of the knee. This can lead to tendonitis should it happen for extended periods.
The position on many exercise cycles is wrong from what I have seen. I use a road/racing bike on rollers and that is how it is set up
I used to ride in a bad position and it did me a bad turn

To get max power the leg should be nearly....but not totally extended at the bottom of the pedal stroke.

Get a comfortable saddle, it really helps to be comfortable

How do i adjust the tension on a ActionC100 exercise bike

I just fixed a C100with the same problem today as follows:
Take off the pedals, seat pole, and side panels ( 3 long screws on the top and 4 short screws on the bottom then push out [from the inside] the pedal shaft outlet covers and gently take the covers off by turning the pedal shaft). You'll see the cable to the wheel and secure it to the lower chassis rail by tape or a cable tie, then undo the lock nut on the cable end and extend the screwed sleeve by 10 mm. You'll then see that pulling and releasing the outer cable will loosen and tighten the magnetic brake more smoothly. Good Luck, Andy

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.

Right-hand pedal loose

I've had that happen with the exercise bikes that I have repaired My best suggestion is their any play after tightening the pedal if not remove the pedal an apply some blue loctite on the threads let it set up then put the pedal back. This should take care of it now if you want to get more radical then apply the red loctite, the only way to break the pedal loose is actually using a torch!!! good luck
