    Help! Have you got a Marcy Ascot excercise bike?

    I can't work out the control panel (see pic) for the life of me and I almost feel embarrassed by saying so. I can normally work things out by randomly pressing buttons, but not this time, my edugeek powers are weak. I tried looking online for a manual but can only find other people also looking for it, there doesn't seem to be one out there. The bike does work on manual mode, but annoyingly it counts up to 1 km in distance and then goes back to zero?? There are games (pre-programed variable sessions) on there that I can't access! I'm sure there is other stuff I also can't access as when I press and hold the reset button I can see all the features and digits light up for a split second. Help someone please, I'm going insane.

    Actually it is quite an illogical bike and that makes it harder to work out. 1) When you're toggling between two options it is the steady option that is the current selection and not the flashing option?? 2) When you're racing to keep up with the indicated rpm a arrow appears pointing down?? 3) The distance monitor goes up to 1km and then goes back to zero?? 4) There are 7 preset games but in my opinion level 3 is harder than level 2??
    Who designs these things?
