Re: Fair value of a used Model E with PM4?

A quick check on FleaBay "completed listings" seems to suggest $800-$900

However, I also saw at least one person asking $800 for a Model D.

As you probably already know, they hold their value very well.

YMMV

Re: Retrofitting a PM3 monitor onto my Model C

Thanks Carl. 1/16" - that isn't much. I do have a chop saw, that could do the trick, but only have a wood blade on it. Once I receive the PM3 I'll see how the tolerances stack up and proceed from there. If my arm is a bit narrow and the PM3 opening a bit wide I may get lucky. If I only need to remov...

Re: Retrofitting a PM3 monitor onto my Model C

Thanks Edward - that's exactly the information I was looking for.

(My Model C has the plastic arm, so I'll modify it as required.)

Re: Would you buy this?

No, it's way to rough. The only redeeming factor seems to be that the monitor appears to be working. Other than that, most everything else looks shot. Maybe if it were $10 I'd take it off his hands to fool around with it, and if there some really hard up kids' home that needed exercise equipment I m...

Retrofitting a PM3 monitor onto my Model C

I just bought a (used) PM3 to replace the PM2+ on my Model C rower. (I don't yet have the monitor - it's "in the mail.") I had assumed it would be a simple swap, remove the 2+ and put the 3 in it's place, but I just checked the C2 site and it seems to suggest that I also need to replace the monitor ...

Re: PM2 problems

Re the upgrade to a new monitor, I could, cost isn't really the issue but I bought this rower relatively cheaply a few weeks ago and don't feel inclined to drop another chunk of cash on it unless I have to. I wouldn't be too concerned about spending some money on a Model C. Assuming it's it good co...

Re: brand new rower, chain stuck to start?

Can you tell if the flywheel spins freely?

I'm not sure about the later models, but on my C removing the cover is a 1 minute job. (replacing it is a teeny bit more time consuming because you have to be careful to align everything properly, but all in all it's a very simple operation)

Re: C2 Utility refuses to install

So, I shall have another go at it today once I get myself out of bed. I am lying here composing this on the IPad. Retirement isn't all bad.

Re: Rowbuddy wanted or Team ready to join

I recommend that you do what Dean suggested above - find a local (or even not so local) rowing club, contact them and find out when they do indoor workouts and go check them out. You'll benefit by seeing them in person and by talking to them, and I bet that it wouldn't take long for them to help wit...

Re: Drag Factor On A New Model D

What is it at the higher damper settings? I'd say that as long as you can get the DF you need, then it really doesn't matter what's going on at Setting #1. (I have no clue what the statistical distribution is for new machines at various damper positions.) Edit: It looks like Citroen and I posted the...

Re: Seat Doesn't Return

She purchased it from rogue fitness, supposedly brand new, so I guess we'll contact them. If it's a brand-new rower I'd call C2 and see what they say. They'll be able to tell you how loose / tight it should feel. http://www.concept2.com/company Sales and Customer Service: Toll-free 800.245.5676 or ...

Re: Seat Doesn't Return

I've just read the OP a bit more carefully. Whether or not the seat rolls on it's own (with no one sitting on it) to the fwd (or aft) position due to gravity is pretty much meaningless. As was pointed out above, the angle of the rail is one factor determining whether or not your mother's seat will b...

Re: First Concept 2 - Need Some Advice!

Call C2 and ask them what they think. I'm sure they'll explain it well and following that conversation I doubt you'll think that the model E is a "con." Having said that, I think a Model D is most likely the right choice for the uses you've described. They're great machines and you won't regret it. ...
