ENSURE A PROPER BIKE FIT
5 Steps to Stages Fit
Set handlebar and seat fore/aft adjustments to neutral “0”. Tighten dials.
Set seat FitLoc to correct height. Use hip bone (iliac crest) as a landmark.
Set handlebar FitLoc to correct height even with or above seat height.
Get on the bike and pedal for a minute. Assess seat and handlebar height.
Make any needed adjustments and ensure that dials and FitLocs are all locked.
HOW TO USE THE SPRINTSHIFT
Make instantaneous macro-level resistance changes without incessantly turning a dial.
Unique three-stage lever and custom workload settings allow indoor cyclists instant control.
Perfect for HIIT and interval based workouts, you can add or drop resistance quickly and easily, without sacrificing custom micro-adjustments.
HOW TO USE THE FITLOC LEVER
HOW TO MAKE FORE/AFT ADJUSTMENTS
Using the StagesFit method, dial in the ideal FitLoc™-activated height adjustment and your custom fore/aft adjustments on both the saddle and handlebars.
GETTING SET UP
GET TO KNOW YOUR CONSOLE
No batteries needed: the generator in the flywheel hub powers the console as your ride.
Adjust the backlight to stay on the whole ride, or remain off until buttons are pushed.
See Max, Average and Ride totals for the following metrics: Kilojoules (work), Kcal (calories), Watts, RPM, Speed, Heart Rate (if wearing a strap), Time, and Distance
Useful for comparing efforts, you see stage, current, and average data, which is very powerful info for training efficiently and effectively
The STAGE button allows for up to 99 sections of time (laps). Data does not start to record or average during WARMUP stage (so total ride data is not skewed with poor warmup data)
Stages Cycling is the number one power meter producer in the world, and your SC3 comes with the same technology that has been proven and tested in the biggest cycling races in the world.
The Stages Power meter will enable you to seamlessly connect to any of the following programs, utilizing both ANT+ and Bluetooth protocols for communication.

PEDALS AND COMPATIBLE FOOTWEAR
The SC3 pedals are compatible with SPD cleats and come with toe cages to be used with any gym shoe.
While there are two versions of the SPD cleat from Shimano, we recommend the SM-SH56 model (multi-directional exit) for use with all Stages Indoor Cycling pedals. Both models are compatible, but have found better success and less maintenance needed when the SM-SH56 is being used.
If you need to adjust the cleat tension or make toe clip adjustments, click here for instructions.
