Concept 2 Model E

I found a basically brand Model E in Canada which I can get for $1000 total.

I think I'm going to jump on it. Even trying to buy a brand new model D would cost me more to get it into Canada by time I pay taxes, shipping and duties at the border.

Greg at Concept 2 said the E is $1260 plus $100 shipping to Canada plus whatever else I deal with at the border. He said it sounded like a great buy.

It's a thousand bucks but I figure it's an investment for life.

You guys have any thoughts?

I agree, pick it up. We have a Model E and are very happy with it.

Re: Concept 2 Model E

I am now the proud owner of a basically brand new Model e.
The unit had 30k meters on it.

This thing is HUGE, I didn't remember them being this big.
Runs so smooth.

Re: Concept 2 Model E

The model E's are taller than the others. They definitely feel more solid than the other models and the mechanism is smoother. The main benefit of the higher clearance is that at the end of a all out 2K it is a little easier to get out of the rower.

Congratulations on the purchase.

I usually flop off the thing onto the deck like a dead fish. This would not be a benefit.

I think you got a great deal, new would have cost you:

$1260
$100 shippping
$63 duty
~$50 customs brokerage fee (guessing)
----
$1,473

So you saved $450-500 (more if the $1260 and $100 were USD) and 30k meters is nothing.

That's what I was thinking... I saw the model e and went, "That's going to be quite the fall after I pass out at the end of my 2k...."
