Re: Weight adjustment

If Concept 2 what to do something really useful then please setup ONE Challenge a year that is for verified results only, I have been requesting this for 5 years. The inaugural BikeErg World Sprints (July 3rd-7th) will be for verified results only. They should also do the same for the row and ski v...

Re: BikeErg and CTC?

I created a CTC BikeErg team about a year ago. You'll see it if you look in the drop down list when you register a new profile on the website. At the time I jokingly floated the idea of its inclusion in the CTC, knowing that it's my strongest piece of equipment and I would get near the top of the bo...

Re: Clicking noise from pedal area/ internals

Hi All, I have noticed a clicking noise coming from my Bike Erg within the pedal chamber, happens more when pedals are turned slowly but still happens in normal use but less. Haven't had the bike long, maybe 3 weeks with a fair amount of use in that time 1-2h per day, probably 1h per day on average...

Have BW Rowing announced anything about the May CTC on the Faceborg?
If I don't know by next Wednesday the May CTC will be a straight un-restricted 2K.
Not yet. I'll message them to ask.

Re: 200m whattbike

IS this the same on the pro whattbike , I got up to 48 mph on a gym bike was just wondering if this is a good speed to get to The only difference between Wattbike Trainer and Pro is the Pro is geared more stiffly. You can't compare mph on one random gym bike to another. You need to look at watts an...

Re: 200m whattbike

No. It's modest. The top guys are sub 10 seconds for 200m on the Wattbike. I've done around 10.3 myself.

I saw a Martyn Wilson had added a 12.2 to the Concept 2 BikeErg rankings a few days ago. Was this you? Wattbike 200s are far faster than BikeErg 200s. The rankings are for BikeErg only.

Re: Considering BikerErg

I was originally considering Echo Bike for low impact HIIT but am now unsure. I've never ridden an airbike. I use to really enjoy cycling outdoors but I haven't done that in years. I don't consider myself a cyclist; but I still have sweet road and hard-tail MTB bikes that are begging to be taken ou...

Re: New BikeErg: Questions!

You would only need to verify a ranking distance / time anyway, not normal workouts. I think it’s to do with needing to ‘pedal to calibrate’ right before you begin a ranking distance or time if you’re intending on inputting it manually. Sounds as if you can use ErgData to bypass this process (?) alt...

Re: New BikeErg: Questions!

1. I'm transmitting my workouts with ErgData to my LogBook. How can I get my workouts to be 'Verified'? When rowing and using ErgData all my workouts automatically are 'verified'. But with my BikeErg all workouts are logged with 'Verified: No'. When you key in a ranking distance / time it'll ask yo...

Re: Bikeerg no good for HIIT

Never heard of this issue mentioned in the Facebook group. I've visited the FB page several times and never see any messages there. Apparently joining the group is required, but I personally don't like FB and don't use it at all. Why not just post on here, or on Slowtwitch where everyone can partic...

Re: Bikeerg no good for HIIT

I stand for all my sprint sessions. And stand for sections of longer steady state rides when I need some butt relief. Never noticed any issues on any damper settings. I've used several different BE's. Never noticed any issues on those either. Never heard of this issue mentioned in the Facebook group...

Re: Weight adjustment

Yes, bigger advantages for heavier athletes on C2 machines. Consider somebody at 75kg needs to put out 4w/kg to push 300w, whereas somebody at 100kg only needs to put out 3w/kg for 300w. From general observation I would say the SkiErg benefits the most from extra body weight, followed by the Rower a...

Re: Bikeerg no good for HIIT

The 'Bikeerg no good for HIIT' title here is total nonsense. Probably something put up by a rival bike firm to discredit the BE. I regularly do sets of short sprints on my home BE without any issues and it is a top notch workout. If the damper is genuinely slipping back to 1 from 10 (never heard of ...

Re: Setting drag factor

All too easy to trick the outputs on these unfortunately. If you drape a towel over the flywheel it significantly reduces the pedaling resistance (to almost nothing) but the drag factor stays the same. Max drag with a towel covering the flywheel makes it super easy to get below 1:00 pace (2000w+) an...
