Concept2 storage

Post by Keit » Fri, 21 Sep 2001 23:55:18


I am considering buying a Concept2 for home use.  I live in a fairly
small apartment and wouldn't particularly want to leave the unit fully
assembled all the time.

I note it is possible to split the ergo for more compact storage.  Is
this a simple exercise or would it become a pain to have to do it each
time I exercised, which hopefully would be daily ?  Is it likely to
have any detrimental effect on the rower ?

To be honest, this is the one thing stopping me from immediately
buying.

I keep mine "split." It is very easy and takes less than a minute to put
together or take apart. Depending on your ceiling height, you may even be
able to simply tilt it up and store it against the wall.

I'd say quite a bit less than a minute.  Flip the thing on the bottom and
lift the two pieces apart.  Couldn't be easier.

I suppose to really be exact, we could have competitions for how fast
people can take apart their ergs....

I have a Concept II model C and I also live in an apartment. I was
concerned about noise too, but I don't believe it's very loud at all.
It's certainly not noisy enough to bother my neighbors on the same floor
and below me. The only adjustment I have to make is to increase the
volume a little on the TV I'm watching while using it. It's not loud
enough to keep me from hearing the ring of a telephone about 15 feet
away, even with the television slightly louder than normal. I've heard
that models A and B are considerably noisier, but since I've never used
them, I can't state that as a fact. I can only say that in my opinion,
the noise from a model C shouldn't be much of a problem.

I think the only concern someone living in an apartment would have is
where to place it while it's being used. It measures about 8 feet long
when both parts are together. That could be a problem if the apartment
is small.

Turning up the TV sounds like an excellent way to stop the noise of your
ergo annoying the neighbours...
