My messy CBreeze hack on my Model C Concept2 rowing ergometer to make it work best for me

I was having a terrible time keeping my CBreeze on the fan so I glued sloppy please rails on either side of my Concept2 Model C’s fan. Really messy. Used a silicon glue. The paracord rails aren’t going anywhere. No more struggling with the placement of the elastic cords. 

Messy channel made by two sets of para-cord guides elastic retainer.
So much extra silicon glue and kind of a wavy channel. So messy. But, works.
So, now the CBreeze is ready to work and keep me cool using my own watt power.
I chose this multi-purpose liquid silicon glue off of Amazon and it works amazingly.
It’s a lovely splash of color in my man-cave. Caveat: you need to adjust the resistance.


How long does it take to install?  The first time will take a couple minutes, with practice about 1 minute .

Do I need any tools?  No tools are required for installation, and no modifications are needed.

Why is this better than my fan?  It uses no electricity and will go anywhere that your Indoor Rower will, or to the gym with you.

I produce about 100 watts, will it cool me?  Yes, I have tested it down to 50 Watts, the airflow in the picture is at a 2:30 Pace (100 watts).

Can I adjust the airflow?  Yes, by rotating the CBreeze  about the perimeter of the fan cage, the airflow can be directed as desired.

Will it make me faster?  Only if used in conjunction with a well planned training program.  Since you stay cooler you can train comfortably, longer. (The Marketing people said to just say “Yes.”)

Does it make Erging easier or harder?  If you are currently overheating, I’d have to say easier, or at least more pleasant.

What is it made out of?  The CBreeze  is made of a high quality nylon fabric, selected for durability.

Can I still stand my erg on end for storage?  Yes, it is flexible so storage options are not changed.

Will it work with my Model A, B or D?  The current model works with the Model C, D and B.  Here is a picture for fitting to the Model B. (BBreeze) (Photo courtesy of “seat5”)

Do I change my Damper setting?  To keep your previous Drag Factor you will need to change the damper setting with the CBreeze installed.  Press the [OK] + [Rest] buttons to display “Drag”, pull a few strokes and adjust the damper until the desired Drag Factor is displayed. Damper conversion Table
