FWIW, I made up some rockers out of closed cell foam first and out of wood later and attached them to the bike erg.
How are the rockers working out for you?

Re: BikeErg PB Thread.

20k pb 42:32.6 / 2:07.6
100 drag factor / overall 70 rpm
4k splits: 2:09.9 2:08.6 2:08.7 2:07.5 2:03.2
The last 4k of 8:13.1 betters my pb from last May, which was kind of surprising.

Re: How to change the cranks on the Bikeerg

I'm making some adjustments.
How do you feel safer on the Bikeerg, and what kinds of drills do you do?

Re: How to change the cranks on the Bikeerg

You're welcome. The same for me.
I see no reason to change this myself, when they purposely made it to not be changed.
I used to ride my regular bike on a trainer, so I might get rid of the Bikeerg and start doing that again.

Re: How to change the cranks on the Bikeerg

Ebay has 155mm cranks for ~$50, and 160 to 165mm cranks for half that or less. A person from C2 said the cranks can't be changed or modified and to try crank shorteners. However, those would make the span wider, so I have no interest to try them. Here's a Youtube video <--- of someone who shortened ...

How to change the cranks on the Bikeerg

I want to change the cranks to 155mm so they won't keep bothering my sacrum and knees.
Has anyone here changed the cranks, and if so did you have any issues with connecting them?
I did send an inquiry to C2 but haven't received a response. Suggestions will be much appreciated.

I don't do those, but usually like to go at a faster intensity.

Re: BikeErg PB Thread.

Casey, wow that's very impressive, especially your 4k and being 3rd overall.
Do you feel your workouts on August 9th and 12th helped you prepare for the 4k?
Did you have a history of racing on the bicycle outdoors before training on the Bikeerg?

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...
