Was this a good deal?

I bought a 2006 C2 rower for $441. Guy wanted $700 but took the money. It was all the cash I had. I hope this was a good deal?

Seems like it. Model D with the PM3 monitor ? If you think it was a good deal, then it was. Money well spent.
It will last you forever. (the computer may tell you how many meters its done too).
Clean it out and give it some oil. (See concept2 site for maintenance schedule).

Assuming it works, that is a steal compared to what I find used c2s for.

Most C2's that I've seen are pushing $700, so I would say you got a good deal so long as it's in good working order.

Re: Was this a good deal?

Even if it isn't in working order. Concept sells parts. So I'd imagine Mike could use the <$300 saved to upgdare/remediate the thing. That's where maintenance comes in. Maybe it needs a new chain or handle. No biggie.
I've had a C2, new, since 2004 (before I even knew what crossfit was). I maintain it but the thing just keeps on going. I have had to sink $100 or so into it recently when the PM3 up and died. Other than oil and some occasional elbow grease that is.

Re: Was this a good deal?

everthing seems to be working. the monitor isnt too bright but im not sure how bright it supposed to be? it has the air slide thing on the wheel to make it harder/easier...what is the "official" CF setting for that? or is that even a big deal?

Mike, forget any "crossfit" standard and rowing on 10 may feel harder but you aren't getting a better workout in the long run. It's not unlike asking what is the best shoe for crossfit.

Go here

Spend some time looking at the videos, read about the slidy thing on the side, and the maintenance of said rower.

This isn't a difficulty setting. It is more like the gear setting on a bike. The best gear is typically the one that lets you go the fastest. If you are pulling a 2k, neither setting 1 or 10 are likely to be your ideal. Like others said, look up more information on it online.

Also, those numbers on the side may vary from unit to unit. Google "c2 set drag factor" to learn how to set it more precisely.

P.S. Yes, that was a great deal.
