I've got this stationary bike, a York C202, which has developed a problem - namely it "clicks" when pedaling. This is highly annoying, as there's nothing I seem to be able to do about it.
I diagnosed the fault as per: the pedal crank axle moves sideways by about 1mm every revolution of the cranks.
I have no idea how to fix it though. I was googling around for different types of bottom brackets, but this bike seems to use some custom one.
There's a nice diagram of all the parts involved on the last pages of the PDF manual.
The C Clips are inserted into grooves on the axle itself, so I can't move them - it seems logical that it should be possible to either move the bearings further apart (screw them out of the frame by 1mm) or put some "placeholder" between the C Clip and the bearing.
However - the C Clip rotates against the bearing, so it wouldn't be a secure fit for any contraption.
Can you advise? How can I fix this? I imagine I'd need some special tools for the job, which ones will I need?
