Favorite Gear Fridays - Concept2 Model C Rower
Posted by Peter Keller on August 03, 2012 1 Comment
It's Friday, and time for another FGF (Favorite Gear Friday) at FringeSport!
We got a call this week asking for new Concept2 rowers. We are always happy to sell new Concept2s, but we also talked with the box about their existing rowers. It turns out that one of their Model Cs "exploded" during a 250m sprint. The athlete was pulling on the handle and suddenly the fan made a sound "like a string of Black Cats going off" and the squirrel cage broke into many pieces.
We offered to repair the rower. When we got her into our warehouse, I checked the lifetime meters rower and found this C2 had been rowed 1535 kilometers- or 1.5 million meters!
We'll repair the C2, and she'll be good for another 1.5 million!
