This video demonstrates how to properly maintain your Lemond Revmaster with regular weekly maintenance.
- 15mm Pedal Wrench
- Equipment Cleaning Wipes, Soap, and Water, or a Proper Cleaning Solution
- 3-n-1 Oil or Leather Conditioner
- Torque Wrench
The left and right sides are determined as if you are on the bike.
Weekly maintenance starts with the daily recommended maintenance as follows:
- Using a 15mm wrench make sure the pedals are tightened fully into the crank arms.
- Turn the left pedal counter-clockwise to tighten.
- Turn the right side clockwise to tighten.
- Inspect the pedals for loose or missing hardware.
- Inspect the straps for wear or damage.
- Wipe down the machine daily with soap and water or a diluted, non-abrasive cleaning solution, or use Sportsmith's equipment wipes.
- You just want to wipe it down every day to make sure no sweat or contaminants sit on the equipment and get under the paint or chrome and begin the corroding.
- Don't forget to wipe down the inside of the handlebar and seat posts on the frame as well as the slide portion of the seat and handlebar to be sure that nothing gets to set in this area and begin the rusting process.
Now starts the weekly recommended maintenance:
- Apply a light coat of WD-40 to the flywheel with a cloth.
- Spray the WD-40 onto the cloth then use the cloth to apply the lube.
- Check the crank bolts to make sure they are tight by grabbing the end connected to the pedal and trying to move the crank arm toward and away from the frame.
- If you feel any looseness here you will want to inspect the torque on them.
- If you have problems with the bolts repeatedly coming loose, remove the bolt and apply a drop of medium thread locker. CAUTION: It is important to let the thread locker dry before using the bolt.
- Then re-install the bolt to the recommended torque.
- If while inspecting your brake pad you notice it's dry or cracked you can remove the bottle holder and pilot, then carefully set the bike upside down on the handlebars and seat and apply some 3-n-1 oil to it and let it sit for several minutes so that the oil is absorbed.
- Before turning the bike back over wipe off any excess oil with a cloth, try not to let any of the oil get on the sides of the flywheel.
- This concludes the weekly maintenance of the LeMond Revmaster indoor bike.
