KICKR BIKE PARTS AND ADJUSTMENT POINTS
SETTING UP KICKR BIKE
KICKR BIKE setup and assembly requires two people. Follow the instructions in the video above, the steps below, or connect your KICKR BIKE to the Wahoo App for a fully integrated setup experience!
Remove and lay out all items from the accessory box to ensure all items are included.
Next, team lift the KICKR BIKE to remove it from the box.
Have one person tilt the frame of the main assembly to one side for easy access, then attach the first stabilizer leg to the lower frame using the supplied 5mm hex bolts and Allen Key. Repeat the process for the other side.
Attach the handlebar assembly to the KICKR BIKE using the quick release.
The handlebars come installed in a tipped down position for shipping. Use the 4mm Allen wrench to loosen (but not remove) the stem bolts on the face plate. Rotate the handlebars to your desired position, then tighten the bolts evenly.
Plug both of the shifter cords into the bottom of the LED display screen. Shifter cords may be connected to any of the 3 available ports. The LED display also features a USB port for convenient device charging, if desired.
Insert the seatpost assembly into the KICKR BIKE by loosening, then tightening the rear extension quick release.
Attach included pedals (or your own, if preferred) to the crank arms. Some pedal axles may require the use of washers (included) for necessary clearances to KICKR BIKE housings. KICKR BIKE is designed to accommodate 165mm, 167.5mm, 170mm, 172.5mm and 175mm crank lengths by simply installing the pedals to the corresponding hole on the crank arm. Be sure to identify the left and right pedals and grease the threads on both. Thread the right pedal into the drive side crank using the washer for correct spacing (if needed). Wrench until snug. Repeat on the non drive side. The included pedals require a 6mm Allen wrench.
Use the included AC power adapter to connect the KICKR BIKE to a standard wall outlet.
KICKR BIKE LED DISPLAY
KICKR BIKE includes a built in LED Display which provides the following data on demand:
Whether KICKR BIKE is currently in LOCKED or UNLOCKED Mode
Which gears you're currently riding in
Your current grade percentage (after manually changing grades)
A connection indicator which illuminates when paired to an external device
LOCKED AND UNLOCKED MODES
Use the button (shown above) on the side of the LED Display to toggle between LOCKED and UNLOCKED modes.
LOCKED Mode: Use the shifter’s manual controls for direct tilt control. While the lock LED is illuminated, external software will not move the KICKR BIKE.
UNLOCKED Mode: KICKR BIKE reacts to grade changes from external either software (like Zwift and Wahoo SYSTM) or from a connected ELEMNT GPS bike computer. If the shifters are used to change the grade manually in UNLOCKED Mode, KICKR BIKE will automatically switch to LOCKED Mode.
