Check the tightness of the crank bearings, also the crank fastening nuts (on axle) If its the gears you may have to turn the screws on the rear derailleur to adjust the tracking. The same as the front. Your question is kind of vague so its hard to pinpoint the clicking noise. Could even be a stone in the tire??lol

When the bike is peddled there is a clicking sound. Is this normal? The bike hasn't been used for about a year.


I think the clicking noise is caused by one of two common issues. The easiest is that the little black computer pickup is too close to the magnet located on the right plastic piece on the right side of the wheel and everytime the wheel makes a full circuit while peddling, that little black piece clicks as it actually hits the magnet. If that's the case, then pull the black magnet sensor away just 1/16 of an inch aways so it will not hit the magnet everytime it passes the magnet. You can tell what's causing the clicking noise by getting on the floor and pushing the pedal around with one hand slowly and looking closely at the tow places I will mention to determine where the clicking noise comes from and then making the adjustment to stop it. the other place the clicking can come from is the chain rubbing against the metal on the left side. It might be hitting the TOP of the metal cage when cycling OR the BOTTOM of the metal shield which covers the pedal assembly. Look closely at the left side of the bike while peddling the bike slowly to see if the noise is metal against metal. You can shift the cage slightly to take the pressure of the cage from scrapping the chain by sitting down in front of the bike facing the cage and placing both feet onto the left & right supports (they're what hold the bike up) and you grab the little black wheels on both sides with your hands and push down slightly but firmly to shift the cage a bit and it will move up or down depending on where the chain is scrapping it when you cycle. That cage will shift slightly over time and it can make a loud noise when it scrapes the chain. I hope this helps. If not, give me a reply with more details and I'd be glad to help you isolate and fix the problem. Leave postive comment on fixya if you like my solution. Luke terpcafe@yahoo.com

Hello. We have an Excel 395 Recumbent Magnetic Bike that is making grinding noises when used. Is there any easy solution to fix it myself. Or, should I just throw it away? Thanks, Greg T.


Sorry just saw your request, you'll have take the side panels off and look for read power on the frame this is a indication that the bearings on either flywheel or pulley assembly are destroyed depending on what you paid for you may want to get rid of it if you haven't already.

The tension on the recumbent exercise bike does not get hard


If your bike has magnetic resistance and you changed the batteries this should make your tension work properly. Since it did not I believe that there are magnets somewhere on your bike that are wearing out. Or it could be a computer part. Your manual should tell what part you need to order and replace. I hope this information has been helpful.

Also make sure the batteries that you put in your bike are really new ones. Sometimes you can purchase new batteries at a store and they are actually a little weak. I had this problem with an elyptical trainer and I went and got other batteries and this fixed the problem.
