    CHAPTER 4: u KranK ™ sinG cycle 4.1 PROPER SET UP The KRANKcycle™ was designed explicitly for upper body and cardiovascular training. To maximize exercise effectiveness and comfort, the KRANKcycle should be adjusted for each user and exercise position. The instructions below describe one approach to adjusting the cycle to ensure optimal user comfort and ideal body positioning: you may choose to adjust the cycle differently. CRANK HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT While seated on the KRANKcycle™, grab the upper crank axis with both hands, press the height adjustment lever towards the outer edge of the crank axis, lifting or lowering the crank axis until it is in line with the center of the chest. Release the lever to lock into position. Crank handles should not hit the thigh when rotated. !WARNING! Make sure height adjustment mechanism is locked into posi- tion before you begin Kranking. To Krank while standing, first remove the seat and set aside. Stand with your back straight and your feet shoulder width apart. Position yourself so there is a slight bend in the elbow when the crank arm is in the furthest position away from the body. Adjust the crank height if necessary. With your back straight, position yourself on the saddle so that there is a !WARNING! When replacing the seat be sure the hooks are fully engaged slight bend in the elbow when the crank arm is in the furthest position away around protruding center pin. from the body.

Make sure that no components or devices block the users movement. 4.3 HOW TO MOVE Bend your knees and lift the rear base of the KRANKcycle™ using the integrated grips on each side of the base. Carefully move the cycle to the desired location and then lower it. CAUTION: To reduce the risk of injury, RESISTANCE ADJUSTMENT use extreme caution while moving the KRANKcycle™.

The KRANKcycle should be installed on a stable base and properly leveled before use. !WARNING! The flywheel will continue to move even after you stop Kranking. Always Krank in a controlled manner and adjust your desired cadence and resistance according to your own abilities.

    CHAPTER 6: P CHAPTER 5: S reventative aintenance erial umber ocation 5.1 JOHNNY G KRANKcycle™ by MATRIX !WARNING! Regular maintenance must be performed on the KRANKcycle™ for optimal performance and longevity. Please read and follow all instructions below. If the cycle is not maintained as described, components may wear excessively and the cycle may become damaged. Improper maintenance will void the warranty terms. If you have questions about maintenance, contact your local distributor or go to www.matrixfitness.com. Note: Many maintenance procedures require lubricant (ex. brake pad, chains, and sprockets). MATRIX recommends 3-IN-ONE oil. 6.1 DAILY MAINTENANCE 1. Make sure that the KRANKcycle™ is level. If it rocks on your floor, turn the leveling feet underneath the front stabilizer until the rocking motion is eliminated (see page 11). 2. After each use, the cycle should be disinfected and cleaned to maintain a hygienic environment. Clean cycle with mild soap and water or other non-ammonia based all purpose cleaners. Apply cleaner to lint free cloth and wipe crank handles, adjustment knobs and levers, base plate and the seat. Do not pour liquids directly onto the equipment. Maintain a clean environment around the cycle, free of dust and dirt. 6.2 WEEKLY MAINTENANCE 1. Apply a small amount of mild soap and water or other non-ammonia based all purpose cleaner to a lint free cloth and thoroughly clean the frame, crank handles, adjustment knobs and levers, seat, flywheel, baseplate and plastic covers. 2. Check regular functions of cycle and consult the TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE (see page 13) if any problems exist. 6.3 MONTHLY MAINTENANCE 1. For optimal performance of the resistance system the following steps should be taken: a. Remove lower inside plastic cover by removing 6 socket head cap screws with a 3mm ALLEN KEY WRENCH.

Remove rotation lever and cap by removing 2 socket head cap screws with a 4mm ALLEN KEY WRENCH. Loosen (do not remove) upper set screw (B) on upright frame with a 3mm ALLEN KEY WRENCH. Remove the RIGHT crank arm by removing 5 socket head cap screws with a 4mm ALLEN KEY WRENCH then remove the upper outside plastic cover by removing 5 socket head cap screws with a 3mm ALLEN KEY WRENCH. Replace rotation lever, and release rotation cam mechanism (C). Rotate cam plate (D) counterclockwise 1/8 of a turn and then engage rotation cam mechanism. Repeat until the upper drive arm is held rigidly without play. The rotation lever should require a firm force to fully engage. If the rotation lever is too difficult to engage, reverse the previous steps. Krankcycle_091021.indd 14 10/22/09 8:32 AM...
