The Concept2 BikeErg is the latest addition to the family of sport-based ergometers. The BikeErg has the same flywheel and Performance Monitor as the Concept2 Indoor Rowers and SkiErgs, bringing to cycling the strengths and features previously brought to rowing and cross-country skiing by Concept2.
The flywheel uses air resistance to create a smooth, quiet ride that responds to your efforts. The damper is your "gearing", allowing you to adjust the feel of your ride. Unlike most stationary bikes, the BikeErg has a clutch, so just like a real bike, when you stop pedalling, the flywheel keeps on spinning.
The powerful Performance Monitor connects via Bluetooth to a wide range of apps, including our own free app ErgData, or third-party ones like Zwift. The BikeErg comes with an integrated device holder that allows you to keep your smartphone or tablet securely in place. The device holder fits everything from small smartphones to large tablets and is easily and quickly adjustable. The device holder can be removed, relocating the Performance Monitor to the end of the handlebar rail.
We include the following items with your RowErg with PM5 purchase:
- Smartphone/Tablet Holder
- User Manual
- Performance Monitor Quick Start Guide
- Tools and illustrated assembly instructions
BikeErg boxes typically fit in sedan with wide rear door openings. We do however suggest for pick up to please arrive with an adequately sized vehicle such as an SUV, Truck or Van to guarantee fit. If you own a HATCHBACK car and your back seats fold down the box will fit.
Every BikeErg includes our most advanced Performance Monitor, the PM5. The powerful PM5 provides repeatable, comparable data for every ride. The PM5 offers automatic “Just Ride” mode, or allows you to set up a variety of workouts. The monitor gives you a wide range of data, including pace, watts, cadence (rpm) and Calories and automatically stores this information. The PM5 uses power from 2 D-cell batteries whenever it is not being powered by the flywheel.
One monitor, many training options! Our open-platform Performance Monitor connects via Bluetooth to your smartphone or tablet and is compatible with over 30 different apps, including our own ErgData. Whether you’re after online classes, coaching and training programs or virtual racing, there’s an app to suit you.
Flywheel and Damper
The BikeErg uses the same flywheel design as our indoor rowers and SkiErg to create a responsive, continuous ride. The flywheel puts you in full control of your exertion and resistance at all times. The damper allows you to quickly adjust the airflow to the flywheel during the workout. This has a similar effect to changing gears on a bicycle. Opening the damper and letting more air into the flywheel is like shifting into a heavier gear. Closing the damper lightens the "gearing".
Adjustable Saddle and Handlebars
Both the saddle and handlebar positions are easily adjustable. You can set the saddle height with our secure and easy tool-free ratcheting system. The fore and aft saddle position and angle can be adjusted for custom fitting. The handlebars move up and down, and forward and back, and with three different handlebar riding options, you can easily find the setting that’s best for you.
Chain Free & Lightweight
The BikeErg uses high-strength polygroove belts rather than a chain for a quiet ride. The belts are self-tensioning to help extend life and reduce maintenance.
The BikeErg’s aluminum frame makes it both light and durable, while caster wheels make it easy to move around. At just 68 lb (31 kg), it's lighter than most other stationary bikes.

Easily the best indoor bike
Very smooth. Highly adjustable. Lightweight and moveable without any concern. Very rich data output means progress is clear. No nonsense. Wish I would have bought this way sooner.
Fantastic bike—and customer service!
We bought the BikeErg on recommendation of fitness-savvy friends, and we could not be more happy with it! Super smooth ride, comfy saddle, and easy to use PM. One small note is while assembling IS super easy, be sure to REALLY tighten that pedal crank. Like 8-10 rotations for the screws, get those muscles out! We didn’t realize this and called the company’s customer service (which was EXCELLENT) and they walked us through our error patiently and kindly. Prob solved in 30 minutes! All in all, five stars! Also XTC got our bike to us super fast and buying was hassle-free. Great ride, truly.
Amazing, from start to finish.
Nothing but a great experience. Tried purchasing. It was having issues, customer service sent me in the right direction. Got me checked out and the kicker was it wasn’t even 24 hours and it was at my door. Purchased at 10am, at my doorstep the next morning by 9am. The concept 2 bike erg was amazing, simply the smoothest piece of equipment I have ever owned. Easy setup. I have a rower as well so I was already familiar with the functions. Thank you for great service and great product!
This machine is awesome! One of my best purchases!
Bought this bike to use with Zwift and other warm up/cool down work. Very satisfied with the simplicity of operation and the realistic feeling. With the air resistance you can work all-out or ride more casually making it a great addition to my space as I am limited to the singular piece of cardio. Highly recommend this unit for anyone looking to ride in the off-season.
