Using the DeskCycle
Start at the Minimum Resistance
When you first get the bike, start off at the lowest pedal resistance setting. Gradually increase
the tension as you get used to pedaling the bike downward. It’s easier to learn how to use the
bike correctly at the lower resistances.
Pedal Downward (Important!
The most important advice we can give
you is to pedal downward. This will keep
the bike in place. If the bike slides, then
you are pedaling forward.
Point your Toes Forward
If you point your toes upward, your

Use the DeskCycle while sitting at your desk, on the couch, or in a comfortable chair.
Use it while working, watching television, reading a book, or on the phone.
Use it just about anywhere when you’re sitting down and your legs are free.
Adjusting the Pedal Resistance
There are 8 tension settings.
The Tension Indicator arrow points to the current
The higher the number, the higher the pedal
