Re: Cross Team Challenge - Discussion Thread

If yes can we have Delivery Room Skierg created. I've created the "The Delivery on Skis Room" This isn’t allowed. Can you please delete it. It’s predominantly a rowing competition. The agreement when we created the SkiErg team was that any SkiErg scores could only be entered for the SkiErg team. So...

Re: BikeErg PB Thread.

Hi John. I follow an 80/20 high volume (or as high as I’ve got the time for) polarised approach which I make up as I go. Basically 80% easy and 20% hard. Easy rides are all zone 2 and most are in the 1:51-1:56 pace bracket. Minimum of 60 minutes, and typically 60-100 minutes. This is steady state, c...

Re: Cross Team Challenge - Discussion Thread

What is happening with the pace column in this month's challenge? Just flagging in case nobody had noticed what looks like an error. I wish I could row at 1:35.7, but I know I really, really cant :P Assuming this comment is a joke (?) as you posted it on the 13th of the month and 160+ people had al...

Re: BikeErg PB Thread.

Thanks John, I seen 591 watts @ 151rpm for the second 100 of that 200 as well. Just the starts seem to let me down. Nearly a 1.7 second difference between the first and second 100. Not sure if there is some secret to starting lol. I am prob more suited to the 500 and 1 min for sprinting. Well done ...

Re: BikeErg PB Thread.

Well done, John! Have you experimented properly with much lower drag / higher cadence? Those seem like crazy high drag factors to me. 50km PB for me! Although it's not an official ranking distance I did manage to do the last 40km a fraction quicker than my stand-alone 40km PB. And so I'm now due a n...

Re: Dead air when getting out of the seat

My ergBike arrived on Saturday. Truly a thing of beauty. I had joined the waiting list back in October, when our local gym closed and I could no longer attend spin/RPM classes. Before or since, I had no chance to try out the ergBike. As a long-time and quite zealous devotee of spin classes, my anti...

Re: Watts Bike erg 4K vs Rower 2K, different watts?

I have both. I’ve been well trained at rowing in the past and I’m well trained in cycling currently. There will be differences for individuals, but typically, peak power on the bike is higher than on the rower. Think of the absolute best rowers who can peak around 1:01-1:03 split (1300-1500w) on a r...

Re: damper/cadence/watts

Quoting damper setting alone isn’t enough info. Need to refer to drag factor at these settings. The older models have a range of about 50 drag at 1 to 215 drag at 10. The newer models go down a good bit lower at the bottom end and higher at the top end. Around 30 on 1 to 240 on 10. I think it depend...

Re: BikeErg PB Thread.

10000m PB from Saturday.

1:37.3 / 80
1:37.0 / 81
1:37.4 / 81
1:37.8 / 81
1:35.1 / 83

Df 144. Good enough for 2nd in the rankings. Probably can go a bit faster as it's not a lot faster than my 30 minute PB pace.

Re: Is this normal?

@CaseyClarke...your experience, and those of many like you who have posted on the forum, actually swayed me completely away from buying a Concept 2 BikeErg. I couldn’t stand the bearings clunking or thumping. Question: Since the issue may be a version 1.0 design issue, what will you and other owner...
