The peddle should be a left hand thread that will need to be turned clockwise to remove,the allen bolt holds the pedal in place and acts like a lock to keep the pedal from rotating off.

How to replace a chain with master link on a Schwinn Airdyne


Airdyne Chain Replacement with Master link

This video will demonstrate how to replace the chain with master link on a Schwinn Airdyne.
  • First remove the cotter pin and clevis pin from the user's right handlebar. Then lower the connecting arm and handlebar.
Caution: be sure to hold the handlebar as it will come loose after removal of the above parts.
  • Remove the connecting arm and pedal and crank arm by removing the wedge pin. To simplify this process loosen the nut and tap on it with a small hammer until the pin is loosened.
  • Remove the nut, wedge pin, crank arm and connecting arm.
  • Next remove the chain guard; there are three screws attaching it as shown in the video.
  • Remove the chain by locating the master link. Remove the lock pin and the cover, and then disconnect the chain.
  • Place the new chain on the sprockets as shown in the video.
  • Install the master link, cover and lock.
  • Re-install the chain guard and attaching screws.
  • Re-assemble the connecting arm to the handlebar and eccentric.
  • Be sure the brass bushing is installed in the front inner side of the connecting arm before installing the clevis pin and cotter pin.
  • Install the crank arm with pedal.
Be sure when completing this step that the crank arm is installed in the opposite position as the users left side crank arm.
  • Install the nut onto the wedge pin and tighten.
  • This completes the procedure.

  • AD Pro/Comp and AD Evolution Pro/Comp bikes have a chain and a belt.

How do the crank arms attach to the Airdyne, by wedge pin or bolt?

  • AD3, AD4 and certain AD Pro/Comp crank arms attach by wedge pin.
  • Certain AD Pro/Comp bikes have crank arms that attach by bolt.
  • AD Evolution Pro/Comp bikes have crank arms that attach by bolt.

Squeaking belt on airdyne bike


I love my Schwinn Evo Comp AirDyne. After 2 years it suddenly developed a bad squeak and about .5" of increased play in the pedals (ie the pedal could rotate back and forth about .5" before turning the fan). Both these symptoms were caused by a broken spring in the chain tensioner. (Schwinn pn 13000371. See part 80 in blowup 5 of http://www.fitnessrepairparts.com/diagram/114 ~$9).
To replace this:
  1. disconnect the right hand (as you sit on it) connecting arm (ie the piece that connects the pedal to the big handle) from the lever arm (ie the big handle you pull back and forth) by removing the connecting bolt with an Allen head wrench and an adjustable wrench. Note the order of the three internal washers as you remove the connecting bolt. Rotate the connecting arm towards the back of the bike to get it out of the way.
  2. remove the four phillips head bolts that hold down large right hand plastic cover. With the connecting arm out of the way this cover can be pulled far enough out to gain access to the chain tensioner.
  3. remove the broken spring and replace it. I fashioned a similar spring with less tension which seems to work as a kluge. The original spring broke at the outermost loop, so I might have been able to reuse it by just bending down another loop.
  4. could lube the chain while you are in there, but you can also lube it anytime from the other side
  5. put it all back together

Air dyne slips, something between the cranks and the sprocket is slipping, is there a part to tighten or does a part need replacing


Their are two sets of chain tensioners ( bracket with a bolt) and one for the fan wheel and one for the pedal sprocket and their is two drive chains depending which one needs tighten. If you have adjusted tension on road bike it is the same concept if you are unsure then a bicycle shop would and should be able to do it for you.
