Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I started off yesterday with a lifetime total on the Concept 2 of 14.9million meters, and ended the day at 15million after managing 10x10km rows between 9am and 11:30pm. 49-57mins of rowing, followed by 35-40mins of resting\eating. 9hrs of rowing in total. I'd tried 100km in a day once before, 3yrs ...

RSS

I'm a long-term user (almost 20yrs) of RSS (Gregarius, Google Reader, and now Feedly) to aggregate news, blogs, page monitoring, social networks, and forums. I was wondering why the Concept 2 does not have RSS enabled, to be honest I'm a little surprised to come across a PHPBB forum with no RSS feed...

Re: Upgrade from PM2+ to PM5. Worth the £150 ($215)?

I'm an HVAC Tech Support advisor by trade. Nest thermostats are problematic unless there is a common wire connected. Nest will tell you they don't need a common wire. For consistent operation in all applications they do. If you have just two wires from your boiler connected to "R" and "W" on the Ne...

I decided t...

Re: Upgrade from PM2+ to PM5. Worth the £150 ($215)?

With increased complexity comes decreased reliability Very true, that's why I had a plumber come round last week to fix my heating, but he thinks it's the Nest, so now I have the Nest guy coming around later in the week (I still think it's the boiler). I do change the batteries quite regular (as I'...

Re: Upgrade from PM2+ to PM5. Worth the £150 ($215)?

A better product (at least for upgrades for home users) would be a unit that does all the "pick-up" stuff from the flywheel but then uses the mobile phone as the computer and display. That should be much cheaper than £155 (in theory), and also much easier to upgrade (software, not firmware)....but o...

Upgrade from PM2+ to PM5. Worth the £150 ($215)?

Hi all, I'm considering replacing the PM2+ on my Model C with the PM5, and I'm just trying to decide if it's worth the £150 ($215). I row 6 x 10km per week, with the odd 1/2 Marathon once a month (and maybe a Marathon once per year), so I'm not setting up any complex rows (intervals etc.). I row in ...

Re: My 3 year (5 million meter) story

Curious how you have attached your iPad? I used a wall plate hanger. It means it's easy to take on/off, and didn't involve any changes to the rower itself. It also means I can take it with me and use it in a gym (as I have done when on holiday) Here's a photo from the back https://goo.gl/photos/ECN...

My 3 year (5 million meter) story

A friend of mine recently suggested I should "give something back" to the internet, after all, I use the web a lot (including these forums). So here's my post about my last 3 years on the Concept 2, including a few tips about how to make getting on the rower week after week a little easier. Backgrou...

Re: How to Record Workout Data

The new update to the logbook website actually makes inputting your row after each session via a mobile phone quite practical. The site is responsive, so it's very easy to enter your distance and time. I've been doing this for a few weeks (I have my own rower, but only with the PM2+), and it's worke...

Re: PM2+ odometer incorrect

I know there are two, and I know that one of them can be reset. I used the right arrow + OK, which displays the non-resettable one.

If it's true that both can indeed be reset then this probably explains the issue. Although I haven't reset them in the last year.
