Re: Difference between normal 30' v 30' 20SPM PB

You’re taking 210-240 additional strokes during the high rate effort cf. to 30’r20 effort. I’d be amazed if meter totals were much closer. 12.5 meters/stroke average for the rate-restricted pb; 9.5 m/stroke av. for the all-in pb. What’s not to like?

@ Anna Rae: including the 1 day Carole McNally memorial row, looks like nine, or ten at the end of this month. Perfect attendance.

Re: Interactive 2000m Training Program [Heart Rate or Power base?]

Thank you for the reply, guys! Really helpful! I completed the interactive plan last summer - 16 weeks, Level 5, 6 Sessions. I stuck with HR cap pretty rigidly for the first half - mainly UT sessions with some AT. I started each piece at the lower pace level and if/when my HR got to the max for tha...

Re: Forum Flyers

Allan - First attempt for me too! Having COVID jab #1 tomorrow so thought I better get it in before my shoulder starts to really ache. (Rowed at 2:30 pace for the first 3 minutes and then put some extra effort in for the last 20 seconds because I didn't want to end with a distance of 666 :) ) Beats...

Re: roller bearings uneven on monorail

Don’t think the thread is derailed. As experienced gamba cortas we followed up on Tartuk’s speculation about causation. He can’t possibly derail his own thread, can he? Fixing or replacing the seat is pretty simple and painless cf. to fixing and maintaining the only body we’re ever gonna have. I usu...

Re: roller bearings uneven on monorail

Different leg lengths had not occurred to me; interesting. I'm 55 years old, though, so think it would have manifested itself sooner in other ways? But I will check, anyway. I have a slight leg length difference that isn't visually noticeable to an untrained eye. I only learned about it due to suff...

Re: Effect of Shock Cord from the slides on the stroke

I'm looking at slides and have been curious about the effects of the shock cord used to help keep a rower centered in the tracks. How many pounds of resistance does the shock cord provide? (Is it similar to an exercise resistance band? Does anyone have ideas about how this affects the effort made w...

Re: roller bearings uneven on monorail

. . . Unfortunately I'm not in the United States, so it would be good to find an equivalent person in my own country (NZ) who could have a look. Might contact Carl Watts, Kiwi and member here, does C2 repairs, mostly PM electronics refurb but also experience troubleshooting/correcting mechanical is...

Re: roller bearings uneven on monorail

How about twisting deformation of the seat carriage end brackets. The torquing force created by your leg drive could be a contributor. What do you weigh? There used to be a fellow on here name of Peterson, did C2 erg repair/refurb in the Philadelphia/Camden NJ area, who routinely replaced the bracke...

Re: A Comfortable Seat

The height of the perineal ridge on the C/R makes me flinch!! Hard to forget how hard it was to develop the lumbar flexibility to avoid carrying bodyweight on the comparable area of a racing bike saddle.

Re: new seat rollers

New seat from Concept 2 is warranted against defects in fabrication and assembly. Cross-threaded axle nut should qualify. To be fair, I’ll assume the adjustable wrench in the foto was used in an attempt to diagnose and correct problem not produce it? And you had it’s mate or a similar nut buggering ...

Re: Forum Flyers

Ugh... Is today the day I bail from the April Fool's Streak? I felt yesterday's 8K pretty distinctly in my muscles, even though I was going very easy with the effort, and finished several minutes past my average. It's harsh after Mud Season Madness, LOLOL :-P I know, that's likely the point, right?...
