Help. I have a nordictrack GX 5.5 sport spin bike. I need

Customer Question

I have a nordictrack GX 5.5 sport spin bike. I need another "brake pad", my term. The pad is about 8-10 inches long, about an inch wide, and about a quarter inch thick. The pad wraps around a metal bracket and causes resistance against the flywheel. I also need the adhesive tape that secures the pad to the bracket. I have had very little success working with the nordictrack repair website in the past. I have been securing a thin piece of carpet as a brake pad but this wears out after four or five workouts. I'm getting fatter and I really need the correct brake pad and adhesive tape and I am willing to purchase more than one.
Thanks in advance for helping me.
