300 lbs Weight Limit

Post by Jsbes » April 7th, 2021, 12:02 am

I’m 6’10” and weigh 340 lbs. C2 lists the bikeerg weight limit at 300 lbs. Has anyone over 300 lbs rode the bikeerg or does anyone know anyone over 300 lbs that has rode one? I own a rower and love C2’s quality, but a back injury is forcing me to stop rowing, so I’d like to purchase a bikeerg but the weight limit is concerning.

Welcome to the forum. I think the deafening silence is your answer.

If you want a Concept 2 product, mebbe consider the skierg. Back friendly & no weight restrictions. Complements the erg well, as it works the anterior chain.

Probably any bike would have the same issue, whether the frame is strong enough to hold all that weight.
Since the rower did, maybe the bike would too. Calling and getting C2's opinion would give you more information.

The bike erg build is really robust. On most regular bikes the wheels are the most problem with excess weight. I've seen riders well over 300lb riding outdoors.I think you would be ok. But, like suggested, a call to Concept 2 may give you more assurance.

Thank you all for the responses. I’ve never considered the Ski-Erg, but I’ve been doing a bit of research and that is the route I’m going to take. At some point my PT will give me the all clear to row again and it will be good to have learned some proficiency on the Ski-Erg and have an alternative to rowing. Thanks again!
