How do I fix the tension on my spin bike?
Align the flywheel and adjust the chain tension using the tension adjustment bolts. Tighten the bolts alternately as you spin the flywheel to ensure a proper alignment. Tighten the flywheel axle nuts with a hex wrench. Replace the chain guard and bolts that hold it in place.
Is chain drive or belt drive better for exercise bike?
Veteran cyclists often prefer a chain drive because it mimics what a rider would experience while riding their outdoor bike. A belt-driven design does feel different because of how the belt spins. The feeling of a chain-driven system is more authentic and appeals to a wider variety of riders.

A pedal that falls off is usually a sign that the pedal and the crank arm threads are severely damaged. The pedal should be replaced, but the crank arm threads can be repaired by reaming out the existing threads and tapping in a new “helicoil”.
How tight should a spin bike belt be?
