Re: Buying a Concept 2 rower. Looking for advice.

Nice one Clean it up like new and keep it clean - wipe the rail and rollers with a damp cloth before and after every workout and it will last forever I've always been under the impression that a glass cleaner, Windex or generic, is what is suggested, not "a damp (suggesting water?) cloth". Luke, is...

Re: Buying a Concept 2 rower. Looking for advice.

I bought to model E purely because the seat is higher off the ground than the D. Makes a real difference to comfort and also puts my tablet at better position when watching YouTube between bench press I've never been on a an "E" but I've wondered. Once you're on the erg, the height difference makes...

Re: Buying a Concept 2 rower. Looking for advice.

I thought the Model E was quiet...at least compared to Oartech I have. One of the main reasons I want to get ride of it. My wife can't hear anything in the house when I'm on it. Model E and D are mechanically the same. I think it's the chain/sprocket noise more than the fan whoosh. I recently gave ...

Re: Buying a Concept 2 rower. Looking for advice.

While we're on the subject of ergs, has anyone done anything that even remotely cuts down on the damn noise of the things? Yes. http://www.waterrower.com/ As I stated earlier in this thread, I own a C2. As per the consensus, I think it is a tank, to be outlasted only by my kettlebells. As I think y...

Re: Buying a Concept 2 rower. Looking for advice.

I have owned a D for several years after having owned a B and then a C. I was lucky in that I bought them all from CraigsList.

Re: Nutribullet Thead: YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED NEXT!

A few weeks shy of 20 years of daily use, our Vita-Mix needed a repair / part-replacement that just wasn't worth it. We got a new one. If only all consumer products performed as well.

However, "Stephen Seller" didn't come up...? (Admit...

Re: "Weighted Walking" - Ruck/Weight Vest Question

Cayenne, that looks cheap enough that I'm tempted to follow suit. As I don't have much experience with weighted rucks (other than hiking/backpacking) or vests, may I ask why you want to try a ruck if you already have a vest? Probably because I'm a sucker for testimonials :happiness: As I wrote in t...

"Weighted Walking" - Ruck/Weight Vest Question

I have been enjoying regular weight vest walking for some time. I have a 50lb model from WeightVest.com. I would like to give using a back pack a try but I don't want to spend as much as Go Ruck asks for products. (BTW, in searching webz, I came across the "Load Trainer" which seems like a great ide...
