ErgData logs the same workout several times

Hi

ErgData has frequently logged twice or more times my workouts, this happens on PM4 monitors (my ErgData is updated and also the PM4)

Any hint?

Re: Flattery or copyright infringements?

I did try one of those and the handle is as heavy as anything of that size can be.

To me was surprising the similarity, the chain looks the same and other parts too, but it does not feel the same.

I am not one of those guys who is happy wearing a fake Rolex, therefore this is a No for me.

Re: balancing flywheels

I used to balance my bicycle tires with copper wire, a trick learned from a retired motorcycle racer who did the same thing with his bicycles. I simply turned my bicycles upside down on the garage floor, and spun the wheels around slowly. As the wheels sped up, slowed down and always stopped the sa...

Re: Flywheel wobbling/shaking

I suggest buying a new flywheel. Flywheels are expensive so do your research first. If you can, you could try another flywheel to confirm that indeed the flywheel is out of balance ( from a friend or from your rowing club), they are pretty easy to swap. I have tried to balance flywheels, but I have ...

Re: Recommended cushions for C2 Model D seat?

C2 pads are best, they are washable! also a piece of yoga matt works fine. But the best thing is just to let your body adapt just like you get used to your bicycle saddle. And yes, C2 seats tend to harden over the years (or might be that new versions are softer, but not that much softer). I just rep...

Re: Model C - Chain Popping Noise on Drive

MIght that the sprocket (or the chain) and the antithrow device (PN1002) are touching when pulling hard on the handle. The antithrow device slides out of position or might be also that the bearing cups (PN1013) are too dry or are too small, Replace the cups and/or wrap tape around to make a better f...

Re: Type of oil for the rower chain

I use C2 oil only. There are many other oils that can be used, but check this out: Motor oil and many other oils stink, you do not want to have that smell indoors, nor do training sessions breathing this air. I degrease/clean my chains perhaps once every two years by taking it out and dipping it in ...

Re: Concept 2 Model D old vs. new difference in rowing

Hello Personally I have both models but prefer the old D, perhaps the handle is more worn out and is easy on my hands, also foot stretchers are more comfortable in my opinion. It is true that the new model D feels new, specially the flywheel noise is different, but you have to pay attention to notic...

Re: Replaced the roller clutch bearing in the flywheel

Thank you Carl

I do not have a lathe, but I will start collecting bits and pieces to build my own puller, I will try on an old unbalanced flywheel first.

Was aluminum you material of choice?

I will look into the cycling and biking shops, they might sell a puller for small bearings that could work.

Re: Bearing rubber cups on models D1 and D2

For those interested, I did use the electrical tape to eliminate play on model D2.

It needs exactly 3 times around on the big bearing, and 2 times on the small bearing. The tape needs to be trimmed to width.

Re: I need a bit of confirmation.........

Hi Great that you got a Concept 2 ( I am just a user, not related to the company), Over the years I have tested many other rowers and there is one other brand that I would even think to buy. I consider this to be the best overall brand in the marked. I also happen to coach youngsters of your age, an...

Re: Replaced the roller clutch bearing in the flywheel

Hi Carl

Did you get a picture when you where using the puller to extract/press the bearing? or how it works? I want to build one.

How that internal spacer modification is working? it is pretty difficult to contain oil.

Thanks
