||Covers are attached with minimal hardware and can be removed without taking off the pedals or cranks.
||Two-step powder-coating process applies rust-resistant undercoat and cosmetic topcoat to steel frame.
||Pedal axles and bearings are designed for smooth operation and exceptional service life.
||Ergonomic saddle design with comfort groove. 10.5 inches (27 cm) width quickly tapers to a narrow nose for improved riding comfort. Optional universal seat post allows easy installation of different saddle types.
||Over-molded handlebar design offer the user three comfortable riding positions: upright, cruising and road. In the road-racing position, the ergonomic-shaped handlebars position the wrists in a natural, neutral position. The wide width of the handlebars provides stability and comfort along the entire forearm. The overall width of the handlebars is similar to indoor cycling bikes, which is narrower than most stationary bikes. This places the user in better ergonomic position, with the forearms more directly under the shoulders. In the cruising position, the wide handlebar is more comfortable on the user's hands. Touch heart rate is integrated in the upright and road-race positions.
||For double the convenience, dual-sided pedals allow the rider to use the pedals with or without the integrated pedal strap. The extra-wide pedal comfortably accommodates feet of all sizes to allow proper pedaling form, with the knee directly over the user's foot.
||To achieve proper pedaling biomechanics, the seat post angle and seat post offset from the crank are key to efficient pedaling and reduced shear force on the knee. The seat post angle is 74 degrees with a 5-inch (13 cm) offset from the crank axle. This places the forward knee directly over the ball of the foot (or pedal spindle) when the pedals are in a horizontal position.
