Re: PM3 to a PM5: now much slower

Do you know about where you used to have the damper lever when you were using the PM3 and what DF did it say for that lever position? With the lever in the same position, what does the PM5 say? That's the first thing that comes to my mind. Another thing, for me (and obviously you may be different) t...

Re: How often to do maintenance?

I believe that's correct, but it would truly be a feat to do a very, very long row like a 100k without taking a few breaks.

Re: For those struggling with USB sticks for PM5 firmware updates

Interesting. If I were you I'd sending C2 an e-mail telling them what you've found and ask them if that's what they would expect, and if not why not? If it's a common issue it should be something they address with a permanent fix on their side (beyond just telling people to use an older, potentially...

Re: 100K Row - LIVE STREAM - Saturday @ 10:30 AM EST

Congratulations, Lance - that's yet another great achievement for you.

Masochist... ; )

I've been on a bicycle for that long (outside, of course, with other riders) but would never dream, even in my worst nightmares, of doing that inside on an erg.

Re: How often to do maintenance?

Since the PM will tell you how much battery life it thinks it has left, you can track that over time to see how quickly (or in this case how slowly) it will decrease. If you're extra-concerned about loosing power in the middle of a row that should allow you to have a good feel for whether or not the...

Re: How often to do maintenance?

What about oiling the chain? Is normal bicycle lube ok? C2 recommends 3-in-1 oil, which is super-easy to find if you are in the US. You'll be able to tell when the chain needs some more lubrication - it will get a bit noisy, especially on the recovery as it retracts back over the sprocket, due to t...

Re: Types of posters

I think you should remember that "gob" means something way different over here in the UK. It's a mild insult. I'm assuming you intended it to mean "good old boy" or Colonel Tom as we call him. As in (going purely on memory here): "Shut your festering gob, you tit. You toffee-nosed, malodorous perve...

Re: How do I program the workout of the day?

Another thing for the OP to consider as she familiarizes herself with the rower and the PM: Don't fixate only on the sequence of buttons you have to push in a given order to duplicate a predefined workout - try to also step back and see the logic of the various menus and how they're used to program ...

Re: A new owner, and quick intro

I've updated the monitor firmware and made sure the chain is lubed and all the bolts are tight. Anything else I need to look out for?
