I’m going to try hit them up on twitter for a small discount and may get the assault bike (that’s the one I had tried actually).
Under 1000€ shipped and I’ll bite.

The AB is a great bike too. Rogue makes amazing products, but the AB is worthy as well.

The Assault Bike is junk once you compare it to the Rogue. It’s not even close.

Haven’t used the Rogue bike yet. I have a full Rogue garage gym, and believe their products are second to none, so I’m sure that I’ll end up with one and will sell the AB.

Question for Chris: how tall are you and how can you pedal related to the handles?

I have back issues and I need to pedal "straight" meaning without bending forward (think a race road bike, I can't do that).

Ideally this is the position I need to pedal

Is this guy a 5" midget or is this the natural position when pedaling with little effort?

I'm 6-6'1"

That’s Rich Froning (CF’s best Games athlete ever), and he is 5’9” based on what Google says.

Thanks for the info I had no idea the guy was a celebrity LOL

issue may be if he claims he’s 5.9 he’s probably 5.8 with shoes.
I’m actually 6.1

Mumble...

Chris?

I am a little over 6’. The seat is very adjustable so you shouldn’t have any trouble.
Very short people are better off with an Assault Bike. My wife is 5’3” and isn’t as comfortable on the Echo.

I would need to exchange 25lbs of fat for 25lbs of muscle and I’d still be far away.

When I was in the single digits body fat I weighed 165lbs

At 205lbs right now

Thanks Chris

I was comfortable on the assault bike so if the echo is even better suited it’ll be fine.
I’ll buy it as soon as it’s back in stock in their european store

Thanks again for the info :cheers:

I’m 6’3” and could use more room on the AB. Same state with shape- in single digits BF, I’m 215; I’m currently 250.

The european store has them back in stock at 830 in the morning yesterday and by 6pm when I checked they were already gone.

They must have Jason from Halios taking care of their inventory.

Been told they will have more in June, let’s see :)

As a 5’9 guy, you’re correct.

Haven’t read the thread, but congrats on the bike. Our box got one recently and it’s so much better than the concept bike

I know. Losing weight is very simple, not easy though. Very different things.

Saving enough for retirement is very simple, yet most Americans get into their 50s with only a few thousand dollars in their retirement accounts.

I have been in good or better shape for about 80% of my adult life, this is a moment where I have difficulties* but I know it's going to eventually be ok.

* in the last two years I have put so much mental energy into work that I have no juice left to be disciplined with food and drinks

A bike is much easier on my knees than running.
Don’t suggest walking as a substitute. That’s just dreadful.

I love walking. It’s just hard to walk an hour a day.

I'm just busting Andrea's balls a bit, Chris. I'm turning 47 this year and I'm a lot more careful now with how I run (bio mechanics) and rest days to keep my knees together. I only run about 25 miles per week.

To make a more honest point to Andrea, I would just not let the lack of equipment be an excuse to not work out. If you are physically able to go for a jog, invest in a decent pair of shoes and go run.

I travel a lot for work and running is one of the few exercise routines I can consistently do regardless of location. I've run through Geneva a bunch, London, Ghent, and probably a dozen other European cities, not to mention the US locations. There is always room in my bag for sneakers.

I also think of it this way - when I go to the gym and look into the cardio theater, I see many, many, obese people on stationary bikes and elliptical machines. How many obese people do you ever see out on the running trails? Running sucks, but it works.

IMO (and I'm just some random guy, not an expert at all), you can drop weight and see significant improvements with just running, body weight exercises (chin ups, push ups, etc.) and a healthy diet.

I agree

Most Italians are in shape and live long lives: we rarely exercise, we just walk everywhere and eat healthy.

What personally killed me was that I went from walking to work (so around 45 mins per day just to get t and back from work) plus every other day doing some cycling, to driving to work + no gym in my work area.

I am in the midst of changing jobs and leaving the shitty suburbs of Milan (which suck balls as most suburbs do) for a new job in Trieste, a much nicer city with easy access to the beach, scuba diving and the Dolomites for skiing.
Plus I should be able to bike to work.

Add to this the fact that we will now be far from mamma cooking lasagne during the weekend and I'm confident I can lose the 20lbs i put up in the last three years.

Seriously, I'm the only Italian that ever put on weight coming back from the USA.

Still, it looks like the apartment my wife likes here in Trieste is a one bedroom.
Since we will probably rent this one (happy wife, you know), it's probably going to be no echo bike for me

Don't underestimate the benefits of walking though. My wife and I went to the gym 4-5 days a week up until December 2012 when we got a puppy. Decided we couldn't be gone as much so decided to work out at home and bought a treadmill.

That didn't go quite as planned as daily long dog walks took over. My point is my now 80 lb Golden Retriever doesn't do heat well, so I've been hitting the treadmill again, and was surprised after less than a week I could do an 8 1/2 minute mile pace like I used to.

That plus hand weights, planks, push ups, etc, and it keeps my soon to be 59 year young body in decent shape. Not to mention the stress relief factor.
