I have said wheel in my classroom, and it's worked well for me, the past couple years. However, the speed adjustment was always a bit "Sticky". So recently, I decided to try and fix that. So I turned the wheel on its side, and sprayed a bit of WD-40 along the rod, where the motor pivots forward. This made the movement smoother, to be sure, but now, the pedal won't hold the slower speeds at all. So the user has to keep their foot on the pedal, to control speed.

Any tips?
