Re: Forum Flyers

Sadly no BRIC trip planned for this year, Jack, because some of the family is coming over to visit us in December. I'm also thinking of using my next BRIC as a longer term carrot, targeting a middle of the pack time, or some other time-based target. I'll use 2024 as a hard deadline if the time-based...

Re: Forum Flyers

Dexter, Henry, and Dave have the Top Three multimillion totals currently. Dexter working toward 3MM. Should be good for Hardass of the Yr. honors. I'm feeling like a fraud being among the real metre munchers. The BikeErg halves metres for the other challenges, but the affiliation board counts them ...

Re: Concept2 Log: Teams vs. Affiliations

If I were starting out today I'd affiliate to "Forum Flyers" as they are an inclusive team with some very enthusiatic rowers. Thanks Dougie! Yes, Leomarweb - you'd be welcome to pop over to the Forum Flyers team thread and see if you like the team. We have a lot of people who just pile on the metre...

Re: Bikeerg no good for HIIT

I've also noticed that the BikeErg feels different when standing up and pedalling hard, compared with a bike on the road. I assume it is because the BikeErg is using air resistance, so when you are applying maximum power in the downstroke, the fan is "slipping" through the air more easily than the ...

Re: For those using zwift?

I will admit to being lazy and I just leave the damper on one setting for a whole ride, regardless of terrain. I normally ramp up my watts on a hill climb to mitigate some of the drop in speed, and then need a short breather on the downhill (light pedalling, or sometimes none if it's a steeper decli...

Re: Bikeerg no good for HIIT

That sounds like it might be a flaw with that specific BikeErg. I haven't noticed my BikeErg's damper lever moving around even when doing high wattage bursts. In the past there were problems on some older rowing ergs with the damper lever sliding down with gravity, but that was after years of use. I...

Hi Andi

The Forum Flyers are also a friendly, welcoming bunch, so you can also pop over to our thread if you're looking for alternatives.

Re: Forum Flyers

Hi Chris

Happy new year to you and the rest of the team.

I did all the 2018 challenges, and have 89 as a count on my side, so 1 of my bottom-of-the-screen entries might have slipped past your eagle eye.

Cheers

Re: Forum Flyers

I also saw that other (apparent) FF in the results, but my photo of the results board showed a different affiliation (started with a "TOT") for him so I think it was a website glitch.

Re: New Rower, needs advice on weight loss

Welcome Agostino.

The interactive training programmes have a weightloss version which might be helpful.

Also, have a read through some of the older posts in the Weight loss section. This one in particular looked quite well supported.

Re: Rowing with Zwift on Apple TV

I've had RowPro since 2004, and used to like it for the stroke-by-stroke data, racing against past rows offline, uploading my results to the C2 logbook and doing the occasional online event. I wasn't that interested in the online element, but enjoyed it for variety now and then. I only rowed occasio...

Re: Forum Flyers

That's rough news, Erik. I can imagine how frustrating it will be to hit pause on the training, but hopefully the investment of time now will buy you many years on the erg down the line.
