I find it much much much easier to do a long piece on SkiErg as I find the RowErg mentally way more fatiguing.
On the SkiErg I simply have more possibilities to vary with technique, which makes it less dull/daunting/boring.

I'm considering adding the BikeErg to the rotation as well. Any experiences to share? Any regrets? The BikeErg board doesn't seem to get much traffic. I love the SKiErg, what a fantastic machine.

IMO unless you have back issues that prevent the use of the erg or skierg the bikeerg doesn't add anything useful. I guess it's easier to watch TV when using if you're easily bored. :D

I never get bored doing daily brick workouts alternating through my machines:

Bike trainer
Rower
Ski erg
Elliptical
Treadmill
Nordic Track Skier

Each machine works different muscles and they are all good in their own way.

I took the plunge on the BikeErg. Seeking variety on LISS and Endurance work. Echo fan bike would be wasted on me right now.
