Customer Question

I have a 310R recumbent bike. while peddling it makes a grinding crunching noise. Stops when I stop peddling. I'm guessing its the rubber drive belt. I've sprayed silicone on everything. I'm ready to give this thing to the junk man.

Hi there,

If the rubber drive is badly worn, then it may need replacing. A grinding noise may also be coming from another part of the bike's mechanism. In any case, it will require a repair.

Let me know what ZIP code area you are located in if you require assistance with finding a repairer.
