CAUTION – Take particular care to avoid cross threading by:

  1. Ensure the thread on end of pedal is aligned with the bike arm as you screw it in.
  2. Turn the pedal shaft by hand first to get the threads started.
  3. If you can’t screw it in by hand then it is likely cross threaded.
  4. Unscrew the pedal and make sure threads are aligned, and then try again.
  5. The pedals need to be securely tightened to avoid any damage!
  6. Finally, loosen the velcro straps then set the adjustable velcro to suit your footwear.

As shown in the component view of the mini exercise bike to the right, the resistance adjustment is at the rear and the adjustable foot is fitted to the front.
