Re: Cross Team Challenge - Discussion Thread

Team Oarsome's choice for the March CTC is a good old fashioned 6k.

Re: Cross Team Challenge - Discussion Thread

Hey Dougie, sorry to hear your streak came to an end. Out of curiosity is there anyone left with a 100% participation record? I think I'm perfect since June 2006. Cheers!

Re: Static vs. Dynamic ERG Split Differences

I've seen some truly horrible techniques on the erg (not the youtube comedy ones) and the score doesn't reflect how badly they are "rowing". They just overcome the technique with strength or fitness and could go faster with better technique. Try anything like that on slides/dynamics and the results ...

Re: Static vs. Dynamic ERG Split Differences

True it is easier to rate up on slides/dynamics when compared to a static erg, but in order to sustain it for 2k, 6k, 10k or more, requires the erger to be very fit. Just saying that anyone can go faster on slides/dynamics than on a static because you can rate up is only partly correct. Most cannot ...

Re: Shock cord issues (wearing out after 7 weeks)

Mice? I've had my D since 2006, done nearly 27 million metres and replaced the shock cord once.

Re: Movable/Pivoting Footplate - Modification, Ankle Joint

With the extra time at home afforded by physical distancing, I thought I'd remove the Shimano setup from my 1x and fit it to the erg. It took about 90 minutes from start to finish. With having the metal flootplate on my older erg, I was afforded the opportunity to reuse two of the holes and only dri...

Re: Movable/Pivoting Footplate - Modification, Ankle Joint

Thanks for posting the update/pictures. I've been sorely lacking motivation as I end up having to rest up for a week after every couple of sessions to let my ankle settle down. If I could install one of these on my erg it might be the push I need to get me back into it seriously. My c2006 Model D ha...

Re: Movable/Pivoting Footplate - Modification, Ankle Joint

Sounds good. Whenever I erged/rowed with a fixed footplate, my left heel would pull out of the shoe due to the limited flexion. It causes excessive wear in the heel cup of my shoe. With the Shimano set up, this does not occur. I already knew that the Shimano shoes aren't compatible with regular bike...

Re: Movable/Pivoting Footplate - Modification, Ankle Joint

I broke my left ankle late 2010 and resumed rowing after surgical repair. Since 2013 most of my erging has been on slides but my overall use, especially in the last 2-3 years has much reduced. I recently had a series of images (x-ray, ultrasound and MRI) done due to chronic pain and a new pain. Turn...

Re: Cross Team Challenge - Discussion Thread

As I said yesterday, 99 of 486 (20.4%) were over 45 minutes for the MAD 10k. PaddyPower's 10k from Oct 2016 had 69 of 449 (15.4%) over 45 minutes. Looking further back: SYC's restricted 10k r24 had 51 of 315 (16.2%) over 45 minutes. Empty the Tanks' Half a HM had 81 of 296 (27.4%) over 45 minutes. U...

Re: Cross Team Challenge - Discussion Thread

There are guidelines but I think the majority will complete this in less than 45 minutes. To row 300m in 1:30 you would be rowing at 2:30 pace. In June 2018 the CTC was a 10k and the top 457 rowed faster than this pace, so should be able to do 6k of short intervals much faster. FWIW 387 people were ...
