How to Lubricate the Tony Little Gazelle

    Spray a light coating of white lithium grease on moving parts -- such as the joint where the swing arms meet the pedal arms -- and the joint where the swing arms meet the frame.

    Wipe any excess grease off with a dry, soft cloth.

    Apply a thin coat of petroleum jelly to the axle tube at the top of the machine.

    Spray a water-displacing oil on the cable holders at the top and bottom of the rear swing cables. Wipe off any excess oil.


  • Wipe down your Gazelle with a clean, dry cloth after each use. This reduces the amount of dirt and sweat that will build-up on the machine.
  • Wipe the hand grips down with a clean, damp cloth after each use.

Things Needed

  • White lithium grease
