Re: How to fix this wobble? Parts and instructions needed.

As far as I remember, you adjust the gap by moving the rollers to another hole. The holes are not all at the same distance from the rail. I never got around to doing it myself because the screws are in inch size. And who in Europe owns an inch sized set of allen keys? (Well, I do now, but still have...

Re: First 5,000m

Saturday is Damper 4. Have you considered that your fitness and technique is evolving during all these tests? So when you have done all 10 damper settings you will end up with a curve, which partly shows the effect of damper settings and partly shows your fitness trend over time. You could to some ...

Re: Just starting again

Sounds like your gym has PM3 monitors. Then you can go three ways: 1. Connect through a cable to a phone and use ErgData. Can really be a hassle to get working. You need a special cable, and it will not work with all phones. 2. Buy a LogCard, which you bring with you to the gym and insert in the PM3...

Re: Confusion over ErgData.app vs Concept2 Utility

If you have given ErgData the account information to your C2 logbook, the data will end up in the same place as those sessions you have uploaded with the Concept2 Utility. The ErgData uploads are more detailed and contain data per stroke. The uploads from the Concept2 Utility only contain data per s...

Re: Fake SkiErgs on ebay

Looks very much like a c2 in the pic to me. On the PM5, the lower row of buttons is placed asymmetrically, shifted towards the right, so the rightmost button is centered below the vertical row. On the PM in the photo, the three lower buttons are symmetrically arranged, and the rightmost button is c...

Re: PM4 Ergdata Connection to Android

I'll check the cable...it was only cheap of eBay but seemed to be the right one. You are right, that you can't check with a mouse in your case. I just assumed that your cable had a normal female USB connection at the other end. Sorry. Anyway, under what kind of description was this cable sold? I ha...

Re: PM4 Ergdata Connection to Android

I have a generic usb-c to usb-b cable....assumed it would work with that. All stuff I've read have suggested it would :? First test if your cable will work with an USB mouse. You should get a mouse pointer on the screen of your phone, and be able to move it around with the mouse. (Pretty cool actua...

Re: Hooking up a PM4/5 to a non C2 rower

You set the damper to 1, and it says you are flying along with minimal effort, while at 10 you are working your butt off but it says you are barely moving. Does the same happen if you switch to watt instead of pace? On a C2, pace is a simple function of measured power. But that doesn't have to be t...

There has been a firmware update in the last couple of days.
For the rower?

C2's page on firmware versions only lists a new firmware for the BikeErg. The latest rower versions are still 166/29 from March this year.

Re: Recommend me some over/on ear headphones

I use Bose QC35-II. They connect via BT to my AppleTV so I can watch Netflix on the TV while rowing. And the active noise cancelling is very good at suppressing the fan noise from the C2. I just have to reduce the amount of noise cancelling to Medium while I row. If they are on Max, the external mic...

Re: Does anyone just prefer indoor rowing?

Ive been out on the water a few times now both sculling and sweeping and honestly I just can't be bothered with the faff of going down there, messing about in and out of the water, all the cleaning, the people are great but I just can't be bothered with the social aspect of it and I don't want to r...

Re: 6k ERG TEST PLZ HELP

Yes it hurts, but thats soon over. Not necessarily. I gave all I had* in a 6k race (the only ergometer race I have joined) 6 months ago. I was sick for weeks afterwards and I have only recently regained the fitness I had before the race. (*: I thought I knew my max. HR from earlier all-out attempts...

Re: 6k ERG TEST PLZ HELP

Are you asking about pacing? A 6k is a long haul. I don't think you will benefit from any tricks with fast start etc. You just have to guess what pace/power you can hold for all 6 km, and then try to keep that pace right from the start. If you have more left near the end than you thought, go for a f...

Re: Android OTG + PM3 + Ergdata

I can add some information: I tried two different Android phones with OTG. One worked with the PM3, and one didn't, even though OTG otherwise worked perfectly on both phones. So the conclusion is that it is a bit of a jungle. OTG support is apparently not enough, so you need to know if your exact mo...
