Re: Bike Erg Noise

’ve had to replace the right pedal twice, take said pedal assembly into my local bike shop where the owner had to assemble it for me as the threads kept stripping, and now there’s an annoying clunking noise on the down pedaling position on the same right pedal. Is the clunking noise from the pedal?...

Re: Exercise Bike/SpinBike

I spent about a year considering different options before getting the Bikeerg. Most of the criticism on other websites appeared to be false and/or directed toward issues that don't affect me. In particular, the Bikeerg is like a time trial bike, which I like. Some people said it was hard to stand on...

Re: BikeErg PB Thread.

40k in 1:25:40.6 / 2:08.5 pb :D
This betters my previous 40k pace of 2:14.1 from last April.

Re: Adjusting the handlebar reach position

Release the top right adjustment knob as much as possible.
The clamp should move apart at the top to allow adjustment of the top tube.
If the clamp still is too tight, you could probably pry it apart with a large screwdriver or a chisel.

Re: Peddling Backwards

I usually stand a few times during my rides every day and quite enjoy doing it.
You can pedal backwards on the Bikeerg, but the clutch disengages and there's no resistance.
However, you could stand and pedal forward at 90rpm and adjust the resistance as high or low as you wish.

Re: BikeErg Workouts and Training

Casey, those are impressive sprint workouts. Looks like a little faster than your 1k pace.
It's very hot here this summer so I'm not doing any workouts, but my overall pace is gradually coming down.

I keep hitting front bump of the front slide.
Provided the bungees are adjusted properly, that happens because the slide is not level.
Each slide needs to be level, but they don't have to be the same level as each other.

Re: SkiErg or Rower with suspected Sciatica / SI Joint issues

I was having pain in my knee, then the side of my upper leg and gluts to the point where it was painful to sit and to stand in one place. One day I had to hold onto a cart while shopping, as otherwise the pain was too unbearable to stand up. At first the knee pain stopped me from running, then the l...

Be sure to request the shorter seat post option, depending on your daughter's inseam/height and if your grandchildren might be using it too.

Can I set the damper at a higher number and during steady state and get that heavy feel while pedaling slower
Yes, most definitely. The change can be quite dramatic.
