I would suspect a missing flywheel balance weight.
As I wrote, the vibration has much faster frequency than that. One vibration per chain link. And on the return it is linked to the speed of the chain, not the speed of the flywheel.

Chain vibration in model D with new parts

I have a model D1 where I have replaced chain, sprocket, chain pulleys and bungee. I feel a slight vibration in the handle during both drive and recovery. The frequency seems to "match the sprocket teeth", meaning that I get one small bump every time a new tooth / chain link is engaged . It is certa...

Re: Rowing at later stages in life

I am right now reading Joe Friel's book, Fast After Fifty, because that is ... erhh ... relevant to me. Well, no, that is not what i am doing right now. Right now I am reading a thread started by some young kid who is afraid of turning 31 years old. I have only one message to you: I have shirts, whi...

Re: Marc Megna podcast

It will probably be very difficult to quantify the discomfort during an all-out effort across different people. But what about the type of discomfort? Does that change? In my own case, when I was relatively untrained, my lungs would burn and I would have a sharp, metallic taste in my mouth during an...

The idea that either of us might go off the end of the rail, as someone discussed, is pretty funny. I must be about half way along when my legs are fully extended :lol: .
It has nothing to do with the length of your legs.

It has to do with the way you finish your stroke when rowing unstrapped.

As far as I remember from another thread, he has removed his air intake grid completely. So his C2 "goes to eleven".

Re: Reduce fat by eating same calories but fewer from carbs?

Your belly fat is another type than your body fat. It is also called visceral fat. There is research, which shows that eating healthy fats, such as olive oil, avocadoes, etc., will help you burn your visceral fat. I don't know if the fat just ends up somewhere else on your body if you eat the same a...

Re: Prizes and manipulation

I'm with Carl on verification of challenges and have also suggested that only verified pieces can be entered in the say top 20% of the rankings. Then I need to understand something: If you are in a competition, and the ergometers are connected to a common network for time taking, how can you get a ...

If you really need the extras the PM5 offers, which is only the backlit display and wireless heartrate
...and wireless connection to your phone.

I guess that last item is the main cause for most people upgrading.

Re: Upgrade PM3 to PM5 or flip Model D for a new one?

Which model D do you have? The model changed in 2006. Old D: Baby blue Metal footrests. No protection caps over wheels. To disassemble, you had to roll a lever below the centre beam. New D: Black Plastic footrests. Protection caps over wheels. To disassemble, you have to slide a panel above the cent...

Re: How to sync data on LogCard to online Logbook?

It will work with a card reader, which is compatible with the LogCard. I don't know if this particular card reader is.
