Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This safety specification provides the safety design features and reasonable safety standards intended to reduce the demonstrated hazards associated with the use (including storage, movement, entry, use, and exit from the product) of stationary exercise bicycles assembled in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions for safe use. This standard is limited to exercise bicycles of the following classes: Class A, non-free-wheeling exercise bicycles with a directly driven flywheel; Class B, free-wheeling exercise bicycles; Class C, ergometer bicycles or those bicycles used to precisely measure work; and Class D, units designed to convert road bicycles to stationary exercise bicycles. Device stability, exterior design, overheating performance, inertia, and design characteristics of the individual parts such as the frame and seat post retention assembly, seat post and seat, handlebars, and pedals shall be tested as indicated herein, and should comply accordingly with the acceptance criteria specified for each the said requirements. Guidelines are also specified for appropriate documentation practices for the owner's/user's manual, assembly instructions, operational instructions, maintenance instructions, installation instructions, user weight restrictions, warnings/warning labels, and other product markings.
