Re: Quick Release for Handle?

I have both the wooden and plastic handles.
Have done most of my rowing on the wooden one and still adapting to the new.
I also have a couple of other training ideas for my erg.

Quick Release for Handle?

Has anyone come up with a quick release for a Concept2 Handle? I've been trying to find a carabiner or similar to go between the u-bolt on the handle and the chain end. It looks like the wire diameter needs to be about .25 inch or smaller, but all the items I've checked this size do not have a large...

Re: What are your goals for the 2020/2021 season?

I got my C2 about a year and a half ago. Mostly to supplement other training. In the first year I only did about 40-50k, usually 1 or 2k after an indoor bike training session. I did the April Fool's Challenge and added 120k to that. My 2k best is like 9:54. I'd like that to get far lower, maybe well...

Re: Erg gathering dust because you don't have enough time to row? Hogwash

But it still takes me 15 min to pull the erg out and set everything up.
Might as well row for at least a bit to make it worth it.

Re: Logbook missing textbook for Verification Code

I just tried to do it for fun.
Once I entered 2000 meters, the verification box appeared. I imagine it waits for a rankable event entered.
Tried 4 min and 1000 meters and they worked. 866meters didn't work until I put in 4 min.
Give it a try.

Re: April Fools' 2020 Challenge Progress

I finished the whole thing, it was hard; but I did mostly improve as I went along. For 8k I did 4x2k SS, all were 2:44.x pace. I was happy with the consistency. For 9k I did 3x3k. 2:41 to 2:44, so basically similar. I have the old wooden handle on my Model C and ordered the new style handle. I got i...

Re: Rowing and Cycling Watts

I've been cycling a number of years and am still all not that good. Though, I do race XC and CX. I train fairly regularly indoors with a power meter.
My cycling FTP is 213 watts.
I'm relatively new to rowing and on an hour effort had 83 watts.
So for me, cycling is about 2.5x rowing.

Re: April Fools' 2020 Challenge Progress

I'm doing this one on my Model C. I bought it a year and a half ago, but due to various things have only rowed about 50k meters so far. I am primarily a cyclist and runner and rowing is to add to those. I'm pretty much going for just the minimum distance of the day. The first six days I just did as ...

Ha, silly me; I thought for sure it would be on the schematics. Can't find it anywhere.

Re: PM5 and HR

I have a PM3 on my Model C. 1 - It appears to be very simple to upgrade to a PM5, but you may not need to. 2 - I use ergdata with an Android phone. Simple $~15 kit to wire a phone to the PM3. Ergdata collects PM3 data and will merge it with HR data. Ergdata uses Bluetooth for the HR. I would suggest...

Re: ERGData+PM3+HR sensor and workout date question

I use a PM3 at home and my HR data does go to my logbook. I have the USB connection from the PM3 to my Android phone. My HR is picked by Bluetooth to ergdata on my phone only, not the PM3. All info gets combined in ergdata and shows up in my online logbook. The HR data only appears in the graph, not...
