Re: Fixed Model B: Handle Return Not Working

The flywheel only spins in one direction, the clutch releases to allow the chain retraction while the flywheel keeps on spinning. My guess is that you have the routing of the chain and bungee cord incorrect and it's hanging up somewhere. Did you check all the pulleys and other parts in the return me...

Re: Logbook and interval trainings

Program your intervals and rests in the PM. Then when you look at the memory on the PM later, it has the total time and meters for the interval session, plus each interval listed so you can extract the info you want and enter it in your logbook. It has the total rest meters at the bottom of the list...

Re: Fan Scroll housing

I like the math behind it. Thanks for providing that. I've done projects where I needed a certain shape (cone for a model lighthouse top, for one) and couldn't find a ready made piece. Dig out the math book and build it myself. I'll bookmark your YouTube and this winter I'll give it a try. The only ...

Re: Used Model B worth it?

Did you mount the PM5 where the PM1 was mounted on these B's? The PM5 fits in roughly the same place on the model B, maybe a little higher but still on the cage, https://www.concept2.com/files/pdf/us/monitors/PM5_RetroReplace_B.pdf. I have a model B and built an extension arm out of wood so I could...

Virtual Head of the Charles

An extra three miles per hour sure helps! The HOCR this year was a virtual participatory race on the water, or on the erg. The live event is coming up (https://www.hocr.org/). Today I did the on the water event. The basic idea is to row the official 4702m on the body of water of your choice, then su...

Completed the virtual but actually on the water Head of the Charles. Race report under the "On the Water" thread.

Re: Virtual Racing

Just signed up for the Virtual Head of the Charles, on the water version. They have an erg division, too. I'm too out of shape for a max 4702 piece on the erg, but in my boat with a downstream current, I should be OK. The link is under a thread just below, but here it is again if anyone wants to rac...

Re: How-to delete log entry from one logbook (duplicate)

You can delete entries. Go to the logbook, find the entry you want under "Latest Workouts", click on the tiny magnifying glass icon under "Action" to view the workout. Near the bottom of that screen there is a red button to delete the entry. One simple way to move an entry from one logbook to anothe...

Re: The Bees Knees

I would guess that it is only because you haven't rowed lately. I know when I bike or hike without rowing for a while, it takes some time to get the body "untwisted" and used to the rower again. That many meters, while it seems a lot now, is about what it takes to actually learn to use the erg with ...

Re: Having Issues with my Concept2 Seat and Monorail

As I said in my post to the OP above - and several others have said the same - my seat has some play in it, even more than your video shows. I never even considered it until this thread showed up and it's never affected my stroke or power. I have over 12M meters on this erg and many more on my model...

Re: Having Issues with my Concept2 Seat and Monorail

There is a about 2-3 mm play in my seat also, but it doesn't throw off my balance. The adjustment holes on the bottom rollers are pretty large adjustments and I'm not surprised the seat is now too tight. I'd move it back to the middle hole. Make sure your technique is good and that little bit of pla...

Re: Rowing as a Fitness Indicator for Beginner cycling Club Run?

I also have some cycling experience, about 10 years squeezed in between serious years of rowing. What Gammmo and others have said is all true. I never did stop erging even in the height of my bike racing. For indoors exercise, I'd rather erg than get on a stationary bike, although I did use the roll...

Re: Single rowing shell transportation & launching????

Just replied to your post under On The Water thread, see above. As far as a trailer, I've never used one, and the one a friend has is light enough to use as a hand dolly. If the combination is too heavy, then handling it like the power boaters do, with backing, launching, tie off, parking, etc. is t...

Re: Best open water rowing boat???

There are lots of choices. That can be good and bad. As you noted, there are two aspects of rowing - the rowing and the launch/recovery. I have a Maas Aero. It rows nicely in the waters where I'm located and with the use of a small strap on dolly and skateboard wheels on my cartop rack, launching an...
