         BIKE SETUP Proper bike setup gives you a more comfortable ride and reduces your risk of injury. SEAT HEIGHT At the proper height, there should be a slight bend in your knee when you’re at the bottom of a pedal stroke. FORE/AFT POSITION Once the proper height has been achieved, adjust th e seat forward or back so that when the feet are in the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock positio ns, the forward knee is directly over the pedal axle. Recheck the seat height again after ma king the fore/aft adjustment, as moving the seat forward and backward can have the s ame effect as moving it higher or lower. HANDLEBAR HEIGHT Position the handlebar at the same height as your s eat, or higher if you feel any discomfort in your b ack. FOOT POSITION Place the balls of your feet securely in the toe ca ges, with the ball of the foot (or the widest part of your shoe) over the center of the pedals. As you pedal, concentrate on keeping feet flat, which enables a m ore powerful pedal stroke. The front of the shoe ma y not completely fill the toe cage. RESISTANCE CONTROL Pedaling resistance is controlled by the Push Brake System knob located below the handlebar. Resistanc e adjustments can be made while riding to vary the intensity of your workout. To increase resistan ce, turn the Push Brake System knob clockwise (+); to decrease resistance, turn the knob counterclockwise (-). SEAT FORE-AND-AFT POP-PIN SEAT HEIGHT POP-PIN

     Your Spinner ® indoor cycling bike is easy to use. The bike allow s the user full control over resistance by simply a djusting the brake pad. Typically, lower resistance levels enable you to pedal at a fa ster pace, placing increased demand on the cardiova scular system. Higher resistance levels will typically deliver a greater muscle/endurance workou t at lower RPMs. RPM parameters in the Spinning ® program range from 60 to 110 RPM. Additionally, the bike offers seat and handlebar ad justments, allowing the bike to be configured to ea ch users comfort zone. This section provides the instructions for making s eat adjustments, handlebar adjustments, pedal strap adjustments, and for controlling resistance. Differences between models are noted where applicab le. PLEASE NOTE : In a club setting, we recommend each user to init ially be properly fitted on the bike by a certified Spinning® instructor. SEAT ADJUSTMENTS Proper seat height helps ensure maximum exercise ef ficiency and comfort, while reducing the risk of in jury. Adjust the seat height so that the knee joint is slightly flexed when the extended leg is at the bottom of the pedal stroke. Once the proper height has been achieved, adjust the seat forward or back so that when the feet are in the 3 o’clock and 9 o’ clock positions, the forward knee is directly over the pedal axle. Recheck the seat height again afte r making the fore/aft adjustment, as moving the seat forward and backward can have the same effect as mo ving it higher or lower To adjust the seat height: Spinner ® V Dismount the bike. Loosen the seat height tension h andle by turning the handle counterclockwise. Raise or lower the seat to the desired height, then tighten the tension handle by turning clockwise.

  HAND POSITIONS The Spinning ® program is a simple and effective way to get the f itness results you want. Following are the three ha nd positions used in the Spinning ® program. RIDING POSITIONS Here’s an overview of the core movements that form the foundation of the Spinning ® program. SEATED FLAT (HAND POSITION 1 OR 2) This basic movement builds strength and stamina. SEATED CLIMB (HAND POSITION 2) This movement tones and strengthens the gluteals and hamstrings. STANDING FLAT/RUNNING (HAND POSITION 2) This movement is performed out- of-the-saddle using light to moderate resistance. “Running” develops core strength and increases endurance. STANDING CLIMB (HAND POSITION 3) This out-of-the-saddle climb incorporates high resistance to strengthen and define the legs. JUMPS (HAND POSITION 2) Jumps are performed by moving off and on the saddle with smooth, controlled movements. Jumps develop overall strength, hone reaction time and improve balance. HAND POSITION 1 can be used for warm-up, cool-down and light to moderate intensity seated flats. Form loose fists and rest the outsides of your hands on the handlebars. Keep your elbows and shoulders relaxed. HAND POSITION 2 is used at all times except out-of-the-saddle climbs. This position provides a stable foundation and opens the lungs to facilitate breathing. HAND POSITION 3 is only used for out-of- the-saddle climbs. Lightly grasp the ends of the handlebars, wrap your fingers around them and place your thumbs over the ends.

      $        This section provides hints on how to stay motivate d, and suggestions for getting the most out of your workouts with maximum ease, efficiency and enjoyment. IMPORTANT: User should be aware of the features, functions and proper operation of the bike before using the bike for the first time. BEFORE BEGINNING Be sure the seat, handlebar and pedal straps are pr operly adjusted for your body size and comfort befo re beginning your workout. Consult your physician before beginning this or any other exerci se routine. Discontinue any exercise that causes yo u discomfort and consult a medical expert. (Refer to page 21-22 for more information.) WARM-UP Once you are in position and sitting on the bike wi th your hands in a comfortable position on the hand lebar, slowly begin pedaling. A gradual warm-up prepares the muscles and cardiovascular system for a more intense workout, and helps prevent potential injuries from occurring. Your warm-up should be sufficient once your breathing rate begins to in crease and you begin to perspire lightly. The warm- up period should last about five minutes. (Refer to pages 23-24 for more information.) WORK OUT A brisk and rhythmic workout will train the muscles and cardiovascular system to perform at a higher e fficiency. The key is to exercise aerobically; typically at 60% – 75% of your maximum heart rate. (Refer to pages 25 for more information.) COOL-DOWN Slow and relaxed activity after a workout allows th e muscles and cardiovascular system to gradually re turn to an inactive state. DISMOUNTING THE BIKE WARNING: The flywheel momentum of the bike will keep the ped als turning even after the user stops pedaling, or in the event the user’s feet slip off the pedals. DO NOT DISMOUNT THE BIKE OR REMOVE YOUR FEET FROM THE PEDALS UNTIL BOTH THE PEDALS AND THE FLYWHEEL HAVE STOPPED COMPLETELY. Failure to comply may lead to loss of control and serious personal i njury. You may stop the bike using any of the following me thods: o Pedal more slowly until the pedals come to a comple te stop. o Increase the resistance by turning the Push Brake S ystem knob clockwise (+) until the pedals come to a complete stop. o Push down on the Push Brake System knob until the p edals come to a complete stop. o (Spinner ® Elite only) Apply back pressure to the pedals to engage the Sma rt Release ™ system. Continue applying pressure until the pedals and flywheel come to a co mplete stop.

         I NSTRUCTIONS The following fitness safeguards and operating prec autions are directed to purchasers and users of Spi nner ® indoor cycling bikes. Club Managers should ensure that members and fitness sta ff are trained to follow these same instructions. F ailure to follow these safeguards may result in injury or serious health risk.  Ensure that adjustment knobs (seat height, seat for e-and-aft, and handlebar) are properly secured and do not interfere with range of motion during exercise.  Children under the age of 16 should not ride the Sp inner bike. The bike mechanism and ergonomics are d esigned for adult use only.  Do not insert any object, hands or feet into any op enings, or expose hands, arms or feet to the drive mechanism or other potentially moving part of the bike.  The maximum weight for individuals riding the Spinn er bike should not exceed 350 pounds (159 kilograms ).  Spinner bikes have a weighted flywheel and a fixed gear. This means that in order to stop, you must gr adually slow your pedal strokes rather than stopping abruptly. If you do need to stop imme diately, push down on the resistance knob. Do not d ismount the bike or remove your feet from the pedals until both the pedals and the flywh eel have stopped completely. Failure to comply may lead to loss of control and serious injury.  After exercising, turn the resistance knob to incre ase resistance so the pedals will not rotate freely and potentially injure someone.  If at any time you feel dizzy or have difficulty br eathing, gradually stop pedaling and carefully dism ount the bike.  Listen to your body, ride at your own pace and set your bike’s resistance at the level that feels righ t for you.  Keep children and pets away from the bike whenever it's in use.  Never turn the pedal crank arms by hand. Stay hydra ted. Drink water throughout your ride as needed.  Always keep some resistance on the flywheel.  Stay in control by executing all core movements and hand positions at a slow pace before attempting to increase your speed. Do not attempt to ride the bike in a standing position at a high R PM until you have practiced at slower speeds.  Focus on form, posture and making smooth transition s between movements.  Do not use the bike without proper footwear. Never operate the bike with bare feet.  Never remove your feet from the pedals while still in motion. Prevent your feet from coming out of the toe clip or shoe cage by keeping shoe laces tucked in and foot straps pulled snug around your shoe. If your foot does become disengaged, pus h down on the resistance knob to stop the flywheel’s motion.

  STRETCHING Stretching will help prevent injury and soreness. I t keeps the lower back and leg muscles flexible, wh ich enhances physical performance and reduces strain. Below are some key stretches to incorporate at the beginning and end of your workout. You shou ld stretch slowly to the point where mild discomfort is felt in the muscle being stretched. P ractice deep breathing through the nose at all time s. Do not bounce during the stretch, since this may result in injury. The following streches should be performed off the bike. HAMSTRINGS 1 Place one foot on the bike between the handlebars a nd the seat, and find a position where your balance on your supporting leg is stable. 2 Slightly bend your supporting leg. 3 Square your hips so both hip bones “face” forward. 4 As you exhale, bend forward from your hips and brin g your straight torso toward your straight leg. 5 Relax and breathe as you stretch. Switch legs after 30-60 seconds. QUADS 1 Hold onto the bike with one hand, using the bike fo r balance. 2 Grasp the top of your foot or ankle with your free hand and bring your heel as close to the buttocks a s possible. 3 As you exhale, pull your abdominals in and tuck you r hips underneath you. 4 Hold the stretch and breathe. Switch legs after 30- 60 seconds. CALVES 1 Standing directly behind the Spinner®, place the so le of one foot against the bottom of the frame, hee l down. 2 Stand erect and lean slightly into the bike until y ou feel a stretch in your calf muscles. 3 Hold the stretch and breathe. Switch legs after 30– 60 seconds. HIP FLEXORS 1 Assume a lunge position. 2 Place back knee on a towel. 3 Make sure front knee is directly over the foot and ankle. 4 Hands may be placed comfortably on the front thigh. 5 Abdominals are in and hips tucked under. 6 Hold the stretch and breathe. Switch legs after 30- 60 seconds. LOWER BACK 1 Start in an all-fours position with your knees hip- width apart, and hands shoulder-width apart. 2 Align your hands under your shoulders and your knee s under your hips. 3 Point your fingers forward, being careful not to lo ck or hyperextend your elbows. 4 Gently round your back and lengthen your spine and shoulders. 5 Allow your chin to drop slightly lower than a neutr al position. 6 Feel the stretch throughout the curve of your spine . 7 Hold the stretch and breathe for 30 seconds.

  Inspection / Adjustment Inspect major moving parts that require constant pr oper torque. Loose or misadjusted parts can result in personal injury or damage to the bike. Check the following parts for security and/or proper torq ue. Crank arms The crank arms should be re-torqued after the first 10 hours of use and every 100 hours of operation, thereafter. The crank arm to the bottom bracket torque is 30 lbs-ft (± 3 lbs-ft). Pedals Use a pedal wrench. Verify that the pedal is not cr oss-threaded. IMPORTANT: If your facility allows members to interchange peda ls, it is critical that the pedals are checked afte r each class to prevent damage, which may lead to injuries if ignored. Water bottle (Spinner ® V) Tighten down assembly screws. NOTE: Water bottle cages are easily damaged when oversize d bottles are forced to fit within the bottle cage. Checking and tightening the screws will help prevent damage. W EEKLY M AINTENANCE Weekly maintenance should focus on the overall perf ormance of the Spinner ® indoor cycling bike. During these inspections, loo k for vibration and possible loose assemblies. Have an experienced rider ride each bike to identif y and help diagnose any vibration, noises, and any "unusual" feeling from the drive chain. Either faulty flywheel alignment or a loose chain can caus e vibration. o Check for proper flywheel alignment. Torque flywhee l nuts as necessary. o Remove chain guard and check for loose chain. Adjus t chain as necessary (refer to "Chain Adjustment" o n pages 23-24). o Inspect The Bottom Bracket Assembly (BBA). The BBA will come loose periodically and require tightening . Loose play (left and right motion) indicates the BBA needs adjusting . (Spinner ® V) Inspect each bike for loose assemblies, parts, bolt s and nuts. Give particular attention to the follow ing: o Tighten all frame base hardware. o Tighten all pull pin handles. o Tighten seat hardware. o Tighten pedal toe clip / toe straps. o Inspect and tighten tension knob assembly. M ONTHLY M AINTENANCE The monthly maintenance check should be a comprehen sive inspection of the overall frame and main assem bly components of the Spinner ® indoor cycling bike. Inspection Inspect the frame and main assembly components for rust or corrosion. Tilt the bike or place in an ups ide down position to locate areas where rust and corrosion may develop. Use a small, wire brush to r emove rust build-up in small crevasses, such as lev eling feet, pop pin handles and other bolt assemblies. Give particular attention to the follow ing areas: o Leveling feet o Pop pin handles Inspect all wear items for adjustments or possible part replacement. Give particular attention to the following: o Inspect brake pad for wear. Excessive wear, such as glazing or leather separation, indicates replaceme nt is required. o Inspect seat pad for wear. Rips, tears or excessive movement indicates replacement is required. o Inspect pedals for play. Excessive movement of peda ls indicates replacement is required.

MOVING AND LEVELING To move the bike to a new location: Lift the bike from the rear and use the front wheel s (located on the front leg, below the handlebar) t o roll the bike from one location to another. To level the bike: Use the four leveling adjusters (located on the und erside of the front and rear legs) to compensate fo r uneven floor surfaces. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE Perform regular scheduled preventive maintenance pr ocedures to maintain your Spinner ® indoor cycling bike in serviceable condition. Note: Star Trac strongly recommends replacing the pedals after two years of use. AINTENA NCE T OOLS Tools required for service and maintenance of your Spinner ® indoor cycling bike are listed below. Tool Purpose Pedal Wrench, 15mm* Remove and install pedals. Shimano-compatible Bottom Bracket Tool* Remove, ins tall and adjust the bottom bracket. (Spinner ® V) Cotterless Crank Puller* Remove crank. Metric Allen Wrench Set and Metric Socket, 2mm ~ 6m m Install and adjust leg bolts, chain tensioner, br ake pad and crank bolts. Crescent (adjustable) Wrench Adjust chain tension. Torque Wrench Adjust crank arm. * Available at local bike or fitness-related stores . D AILY M AINTENANCE The service life of your Spinner ® indoor cycling bike will be determined by how cons istently you perform the daily maintenance procedur es. Dry the Spinner ® indoor cycling bike after each use to remove sweat and moisture. It is best to use a liquid non-abras ive cleaner and water solution. Wipe Down / Cleaning To prevent the build-up of rust and other forms of corrosion, wipe down the bike at the end of each da y (or preferably at the end of each class). Raise all posts to the highest setting to expose moisture . Using an absorbent cloth, focus on all areas that perspiration can settle. Give particular attention to the following areas: o Handlebar o Seat / adjustable slide for the seat o Flywheel o Back leg assembly o Chain guard o Brake knob and bolt assembly o Pop-pins o Leveling feet NOTE: Never use abrasive cleaning liquids or petroleum-ba sed solvents when wiping down the bike. NOTE: Release all tension from the resistance knob after each use to allow for perspiration to evaporate. I f bikes are used in a class setting, the instructor may direct class participants to release all tension for the resistance knob after each use .
