Rogue Echo Bike

Post by CGSshorty » Sun Mar 04, 2018 4:55 pm

Any air bike fans here? I just received my new Echo bike. It is so much nicer than the Assault Bike I use at the gym. It’s not even close.
The belt drive is very quiet and the whole rig is far more solid.
Calories and RPM feel like they match up to the Assault Bike for those who are used to it.

Very cool!! It looks more solid than the Assault bike. The bike is a great skill.

Saying it is more solid than the AB is like saying an Abrams is more solid than a 1985 Hyundai. Not close.

Wow. I ride the AB a lot since I don’t run. We’ve got 9, doubt they will be replaced anytime soon. I’m jealous. :grin:

That's super nice. I still roll with an old Airdyne. Loud and annoying, but I haven't killed it yet.

Does that cool your balls off during the ride?

Not much for the balls, but it does generate a nice breeze.

Very nice. If your facing a tv it makes it easier.

Chris...does it do pretty good for the upper body? I road an airdyne many years ago for our fitness tests. I currently ride an older recumbent stationary. No upper body at all.

The goal is to share the work with all four limbs. The legs get the bulk of the workout, though.

I don’t ride at a pace that is conducive to watching television.

That looks like excellent gear, Chris. I’m kinda thinking I want one.

I love having it at home. Some days I get stuck at work and can’t make it to Crossfit so it is nice to be able to do everything at home. My knees have seen better days, so bikes and rowers are a better option that running for me.

You have me watching the youtube videos on this one. The belt drive and adjustable seat would be a nice upgrade to my old Schwinn.

Chris how long do you typically ride? I'm usually 30 minutes on the stationary.

I prefer to do sprint style training for max calories. I usually do something like 4 sets of 4 minutes with a 15 second sprint at the top of each minute. I’ll do something similar for 10 minutes straight.
If you’re on this for 30 minutes at any kind of pace you’ll need an IV.
