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.

Re: Resistance

Hello,I'm looking for some guidance selecting an exercise bike for my home gym. My son wants the Concept2 BikeErg while I was leaning toward the Bowflex C6/Schwinn IC4. I am not a bicyclist. I want the bike for some cardio conditioning and I also like to use a stationary bike to build hypertrophy i...

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?!

Wrong thread.

No ‘Just Row’ setting on a BikeErg. :D :wink:

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 ...

There are nine rankings distances/times for the BikeErg at the moment. Check those out for an idea of how you are doing. Join the Facebook page, if you haven’t already, for workout ideas.

Re: Cross Team Challenge - Discussion Thread

Agree. This absolutely needs to change over to a new challenge on April 1st. Keeping it stuck on March indefinitely is ridiculous. OK so right now it's a straight 2K. No bells, no whistles, no restrictions. Just row 2K and record a result. I won't be joining in. So my 185 CTCs is where my record en...
