Q. what is the secret to attaching the lower tension cable #23 to the upper tension #20? I cannot do it. The cable doesn't seem long enough.
- The first response is the only correct one. Thank you to this person. I did exactly as you describe and it all fit easily. If you pull on the tension cord to make it fit you will ruin the tension. Leave it set to 8. There's a reason its set to that number. The tension isn't the greatest overall on this little bike but if you follow these tightening instructions you will get the best tension you can. I'm sure this is true for all these types of bikes. Great advice. The rest of the responses are wrong.by ValB6/16/2016Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Leave the tension know on eight. Pull on the housing of the upper and lower cable and get them out where you can work on them. There is a nut below the bracket. I turned it down to the housing, and turned the bracket until I got enough cable out of the housing that I could connect the cable to the spring looking thing, then it slides through the slot and after that is done, you must tighten the cable again by turning the bracket the opposite direction to get the cable back down in the housing until it fits snug. Be sure to follow their instructions. Then the tension on your bike will work perfect. Some reviews complain the tension does not work properly and I believe it is because they put tension dial on one and pull so hard on the cable that it is stretched. I am 76 years old with deformed fingers because of arthritis and this was the easiest part of putting the bike together. I hope everyone can follow my instructions easily.by Gramma6/23/2016Was this answer helpful? (3) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- I had to pull on mine a bit to get it seated properly.by TheRoot6/15/2016Was this answer helpful? (0) (2)Was this answer helpful?
- That was fairly easy after I pulled the tention cable up and hooked it into the slot. The diagram on page 7 is very good, look at it carefully. I had to look at it a minute before I got it. I assume 1 year and 3 months later you figured it out though. But maybe this will be helpful to someone else.by onyx11763/19/2016Was this answer helpful? (0) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- I had the same problem there is a small bolt or nut under the little spiral hook thing well if you loosen that the little hook will drop lower and then they will reach. you have to use an adjustable wrench or pliers. good luckby laguilar3/19/2016Was this answer helpful?

- My goodness!!! that was the only problem I found with it, it's extremely tight, I was about to give up myself, but I gave it a final try, put all my effort in it, and I got it! Now it works perfect (They should warn customers that they really need to put a lot of force in it to make it fit.by CarefulShopper586/15/2016Was this answer helpful? (0) (3)Was this answer helpful?
- I had to wiggle it a little to get enough "slack'. It was the only part of the job that worked better with 2 people, but with some pulling and getting the 2 pieces close tegtether it worked. Make sure the resistance dial is down to 0 or 1.by SpartanRunner6/15/2016Was this answer helpful? (0) (2)Was this answer helpful?
- This happened to me too, and I had to connect the little part into the swivels part. Then I pulled up on it really hard, but I had the tension knob dialed to 1, it was preset to 8. I thought it was broken when I tried to connect that part, but it's not, you just have to put the little metal part in, and pull up on it with a little force.by Buuzzzzz6/15/2016Was this answer helpful?

- I struggled with that too. The top tension just hooks into the botton tension. It does not actually "fit" in line like you would think it would. There's a little loop on the lower tension and you put the little round part of the upper tension into the loop and that's it.by Mangham19923/19/2016Was this answer helpful?

- Since this question was posted 11 months ago I hop you have figured it out already, but it is just a matter of using a little power to pull the two pieces together. I struggled with it for a bit but managed to get them to wedge togther with a little extra effort.by absolutgoddess3/19/2016Was this answer helpful? (0) (1)Was this answer helpful?

- 6 C batteries and thay only last a day. Check out your local Goodwill store for a very inexpensive adapter. If you buy them from Gold's they are $100.by msaucier11/12/2015Was this answer helpful? (1) (5)Was this answer helpful?

- In the owner's manual 100118 that came with my Marcy ME-708 bike (Dec 2010), it says the maximum weight capacity is 300 pounds. I don't know why these specifications are not shown on the web site, maybe they are different now.by DesertLady016/14/2016Was this answer helpful? (14) (0)Was this answer helpful?
