Re: Cross Team Challenge - Discussion Thread

Good CTC so far but it’s leading to a fair few input errors. People are inputting their slightly faster /500m pace from the right hand column of the PM instead of the 505m pace from the left column. Typically there’s anything between 0.8 and 1.2 difference between the two depending on the pace range...

Can the BikeErg resistance be set high enough where someone of my leg strength could struggle to pedal(while seated) and would have to stop after 30-45 seconds?
No. No chance. It doesn't go that high. You'd have to be seriously weak to have to stop after 30-45 seconds, even on max drag.

Any news from Free Spirits for June?
Looks like 7/5/3/1 going by their website.

Think they’re deciding on rest periods currently.

Re: Distance to Pace relationships

On the rowing machine, IIRC there used to be a loose rule of half the distance was equal to 0.05 off the pace e.g. 30 mins @ 2:00, would relate approx to 15 mins @ 1:55 is there an opinion if the same sort of relationship exists on the skierg rgds rjn This is Paul’s Law and is a rough approximation...

Re: SkiErg Model 1 vs 2

Another main difference between the two are the handles.

Model 1 has straight white handles with a strap, model 2 has the luminous yellow/green handles shaped differently but without a strap. Best to use Google images to see exactly what I mean.

Same PM5, but firmware configured to the BikeErg.

No idea how to get an image IRL?!

Re: what does good look like? Bike ERG

thanks, what would is the typical damper setting that people use? Damper 1-10 typically has a drag factor range of 40 - 230. Try not to think of it as you would do rowing. The damper / drag are similar to moving through the gears on a bike. So your power output (pace in /1000m) is a simple product ...
