I managed to get my hands on a very cheap Concept 2 rower - £40, but as you can see it is in a bit of a state.

The shockcord has snapped and the area where the front legs attach to the case has snapped too.

The rower is also missing the D clamp to lock the monorail onto the front section but I have replaced one of them before.

What I was wondering, has anyone got experience of completley striping a C2 to replace the casing at the fron?

Any help on this would be fantastic!

If that were mine, I would span the broken area with a chunk of steel, drill holes and just bolt it all together.

Have you been to the Concept 2 website, David? I just came into an older Model C rower myself and found the website immensely helpful. You can look up your model and they will show you a list of items they offer for sale to refurbish your rower. You can also download all sorts of PDF files that have directions and photos that will walk you through how to replace everything. I just ordered a new chain and new shockcord for mine. I bet if you emailed them they could give you advice on the casing issue, as well. They are usually really helpful!

Second what Becca said...

I bought a C2 model C pretty cheap due to the fact the chain would skip during the drive. I replaced the sprocket, the chain, the shock cord, and upgraded the handle. It took about an hour, including lubing and cleaning. Pretty easy to do.

Thanks guys. I have been in the concept 2 site and downloaded the exploded diagrams for the rower and had a look at the parts I need.

Paul - thats exaclty what one of my guys suggested so think we may be trying that instead of spending £60 on a new case
