The StagesBike is equipped with functional brake levers for slowing the flywheel and electronic buttons on the insides of the brake hoods for shifting gears. Accessory buttons (located on the brake hoods behind the shift buttons) can be used for additional features supported by third party apps. A second set of shift buttons is located on the insides of the handlebar drops. This secondary set of buttons can be repositioned anywhere along the handlebars.
When the bike is powered on, the brakes will slow down and stop the flywheel. Each lever can apply up to 50% of total resistance, resulting in 100% resistance when both levers are fully actuated. The button/shifter configuration on your StagesBike can be set to Shimano, Campagnolo, or custom defined from within the Setups page of the Stages Cycling app.
The default button configuration is shown in the table below:
|Button ID (Left)||Function||Button ID (Right)||Function|
|L1||Front gear harder||R1||Rear gear harder|
|L2||Front gear easier||R2||Rear gear easier|
|L3||External app control||R3||External app control|
