The Connect bike is belt driven with magnetic resistance.

If you are having problems with resistance or connecting to your device, then the control panel may be the issue. We can replace the control panel.

 

Connecting to Bluetooth 1st time:

 

1) Press the Echelon button on the bike console. It should beep and the light will flash.

2) Open the app on your device.

3) Tap MORE at the bottom right, then SELECT EQUIPMENT, then choose connect bike, a screen will ask you to connect.

4) Tap and a device list will appear.

5) Tap the "ECH" device (should be the only one listed) and your bike will beep and the light around the button will stop flashing indicating your bike is connected.

 

After you have done this during setup, in future, you can just select a class and tap on the red bar at the very top to connect.

If the above does not correct the tension issue. Try unplugging the adapter from bike and wall outlet and hold down the silver button for 30 seconds before plugging the wire back in. Then do the above steps again. When you plug the wires in, you should hear the bike beep, indicating proper connection.

If you continue to have issues, we need to replace the console.

Please contact customer service and we can help you identify which you have, White or Black, and we can replace it. 

The App has a tutorial video that demonstrates all of the following:

Seat Height: The top of the seat should line up with your hip bone. Turn the adjustment knob to the left, pull out and adjust. Then rotate the knob completely to the right to secure.

Seat Depth: (fore/aft) Find a comfortable distance that you have a slight bend in your elbows when holding the handlebars. As a guideline, the distance between your seat and handlebars should be roughly the distance between your elbows and tips of your fingers.

Handlebar Height: This is purely based on what feels comfortable and natural to you. A beginner would generally prefer the handlebars higher and a more experienced rider would prefer them lower.

SAFETY: ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOUR ADJUSTMENTS ARE SECURE BEFORE RIDING. THE POP PIN SHOULD BE IN A HOLE AND THE KNOB TURNED TO THE RIGHT TO TIGHTEN

The Echelon Bike has a 9/16" ( pedal size 22.8cm/40.6cm)

Bike Weight:  105 lbs OR 47.6kgs


Frame: Welded Steel / Powder Coated


Fly Wheel: 33 lbs OR15kgs


Foot Print: 1.66 ft x 3.44 ft OR 50.5cm x 104.8cm

That depends on which side of our SPD compatible pedal you choose. If you choose to use the toe cage side, wear athletic shoes. We recommend as hard of a sole as possible. Never ride in open toed shoes, slippers, flip flops, or barefoot. If you choose to use our clip-in option on the reverse side of pedal, use SPD cleats on the bottom of your SPD compatible cycling shoe.

Yes, 300 (136 kg) pounds is the recommended weight limit.  However we have many people up to 350 (158 kg) using the bike with no problems.

Height requirements:

- Originally 6'4" (193cm), however we now have riders up to 6'8'' (203cm) using the bike, and enjoying it.  Many Professional sports players are some of our biggest fans.

- Originally 4'11 (149 cm), but we now have riders as tall as 4'5'' (134 cm) using the bike.

The Q-Factor is 204 mm for the Echelon Connect Bike.  

The Q factor is the distance between the outside faces of the crank arms.  Our Q factor is 204 mm.

First make sure the bike is turned on and the blue light is on the console. 

Second start pedalling and turn the knob to the right.  Every full turn will equate to 4 levels increased on the resistance.  Eight turns will be about the highest level.

Turning back to the left should decrease the resistance.

Pedaling wakes up the bike.  If you don't pedal to wake the bike, the resistance will not work.

If the above steps do not work, please contact support to replace your encoder wheel.

The serial number is on the back of the tablet stand.  The Zero is a number (0) not a letter (o).  This information is needed when signing up for a subscription, and we appreciate you referring to us when submitting a warranty.

Activate the tension by beginning to pedal. Once you have begun pedaling, slowly adjust tension by turning the knob clockwise to the appropriate level of intensity.

Yes, you cannot adjust the tension without the bike being plugged in.

No, you can adjust tension without the app. You will need to activate the tension by pedalling. Once you have begun to pedal, turn the knob to adjust. If you stop pedalling, your tension will decrease.

2: Simply swipe down on your screen and tap screen mirroring from the quick settings menu, then select the Chromecast WiFi network that pops up. This will mirror your entire device.

3: Once your screen is mirrored, login to the Echelon app and play a class or ride.

For your iOS device on your Apple TV or AirPlay 2-compatible smart TV:

1. Connect your iOS device to the same Wi-Fi network as your Apple TV or AirPlay 2-compatible smart TV.

2. Open Control Center:

- On iPhone X or later or iPad with iOS 12 or later: Swipe down from the upper-right corner of the screen.

- On iPhone 8 or earlier or iOS 11 or earlier: Swipe up from the bottom edge of any screen. 

3. Tap Screen Mirroring.

5. If an AirPlay passcode appears on your TV screen, enter the passcode on your iOS device.

NOTE: 

Your TV uses your iOS device's screen orientation and aspect ratio. To fill your TV screen with the mirrored iOS device screen, change your TV's aspect ratio or zoom settings.

To stop mirroring your iOS device, open Control Center, tap Screen Mirroring, then tap Stop Mirroring. Or press the Menu button on your Apple TV Remote.

If you have a Google Chromecast device

You can use a number of third-party apps that will mirror your iOS device's screen to a Chromecast such as Mirror for Chromecast.

Cadence: How fast you are pedaling. It is measured in RPM’s (rotations per minute) Your instructor might suggest a cadence but it is always up to you. Do not pedal over 120 RPMS as this could potentially be unsafe. If you are able to pedal over 120 RPMs, you should increase your resistance.

Resistance: Your Connect bike has resistance levels of 1-32 (bike needs to be connected to app to see your resistance level). It is adjusted by turning the resistance knob on the frame of the bike. Turn to the right to increase and to the left to decrease. For example, if your instructor suggests that you are on a “hill”, you would turn your resistance knob to the right. For a recovery or a flat road you would turn your resistance to the left.

Output: How much effort you are putting into the class. You increase your output by increasing your cadence or resistance, or a combination of both.

Calories: We all know what these are! Your calorie burn will increase as your output increases.

If you prefer to not look at any or all of these numbers during your ride, simply swipe down on the box and that particular display will disappear.

Software: Requires iOS 9.0 or later, but the device needs the ability to update to the latest version of the APP.
