CC2 Model D-old generation locking mechanism

In August 2006 all new model D's have been upgraded with an "updated" frame lock mechanism, modified monorail artwork, and redesigned foot-stretchers.

Does anyone know if there was a problem with the older style locking mechanism for gym use? (the one with the wheel underneath that you had to turn to lock the frames together). I could care less about the artwork and the foot strechers, but if there is something wrong with the older locking mechanism, thats another story.

I am contemplating buying an older model D for $700. 700 seems to be the going rate for a used cc2 in the area, but that is also for the newer newer model with the upgrades. would this still be a good buy?

Kevin

There was an issue with the strength of the joint where the rail joins the box section at the front.

There is a retro fit kit available from C2 website if you have a look. There is a list of serial numbers and the year/years of manufacture that were affected. If the serial number of the rower your interested in is on the list, then it is advised to fit the kit to avoid any structural failure.

The newer model D's have a strengthened box section after it was discovered that some of the older ones were splitting, due to the lightweight construction.

Someone had posted a thread about it a while back, if you have a dig about you might find it.

Cheers.
