Http://www.fitnessrepairparts.com/diagram/113 This is an on-line link to the schematics for your Airdyne. The large nut between the handlebar (foot part) and the wheel hub are supposed to be pretty snug. Tighten the nut using a 6 or 8 adjustable wrench and tighten the nut clockwise. Be careful not to tighten too hard or the handlebar will not move at all. This is a very easy fix.

My bikes handlebar is coming out on the left side. I don't really know anything about bikes so I need help. (Its a 26" Huffy Mountain Bike)


On the steering stem were the handle bars go through there will be a clamp. This clamp will have one, two or four bolts tht clamp the handle bar.
Depending on the type of bolt used on your bike you will need a ring, socket or allen wrench. Loosen these bolts of about two turns anti clockwise and center your bars and then tighten the bolts.

My MTB handles seem to be to loose , when I let go of the handles there is no stability. How do I set this?


This sounds like te neck of the bike has come loose, tighten the bolt that's right above the frame and underneath the handle bars, there will also be a little washer-type thing that's directly under the bolt and you must tighten that in order to shield the bearing from moisture. hope this helps, Daniel

First time driving a 1967 Triumph motorcycle coming up. Would like advice on where stuff is like clutch, brake, shifter and how to shift -- where the gears are. Thanks. Art asanfelici@verizon.net


Hi Art! First of all, congratulations on your 1967 Triumph... that's a beauty!!!

Basic things to know before riding a bike is it's parts.

Clutch is the lever you press on the left side of the handle bar.

Front disc brake is the lever on the right side of the handle bar.

Shifter is the one you're stepping on when shifting gears and is located on the left side of the engine if you're on it.

Now, you must first know if the gear is on Neutral by pushing the bike before starting the bike. If it's hard to push then the shifter is not in neutral. Press the shifter by your left foot until you are able to push the bike with ease.

Hop on the bike and start the engine. Most bikes have ignition starters but if your bike doesn't have one, then you have to turn keys to on position and use the kick starter. Rev the engine by pressing the throttle grip on the right side of the handle bar.

Engine is running and in idle position. Press the Clutch lever (left hand) and press the shifter once (left foot) DO NOT RELEASE THE CLUTCH YET!!!

Slowly press the throttle with your right hand until you hear or feel the engine purr...

Slowly release the clutch (left hand) until you fell the bike move forward.

If I am not mistaken, shifting the gears of the triumph is 1-down and 4 up...

Every time you shift gears, you need to press the clutch to release the gears.

Hope you'll have fun!!!

Ride safe my friend!!!

Don't forget your riding gears!!!

Loose handlebars on a Mongoose XR-75 mountain bike. I tried to tighten them but they still are loose. Help!


Check the splines on the handle bar. Just loosen the "clamp" and slide the bar over to one side enough so you can tell if the are stripped or not. If they are then replace the bar, if not then reassemble and try to put a littlle extra torque on the bolt.

I have noticed with the 2 of these bikes that I have that the bars do not like to stay tight for long, they tend to work thier way loose about every other time we use them. I just keep tightening them untill the splines strip, then pick up a new bar.

Contact Mongoose for parts info at: www.Mongoose.com under "about" click ask mongoose.

Good luck.

Bike gears


usually there are 2 levers on each handle bar, one lever lowers the gear while the other one raises the gear. usually the right handle bar has the shift for the gears on the rear wheel, while the left handle bar has the shift for the pedal gears
