Great stuff. Just received it and absolutely excited by the ease of use. This is exactly what was missing from my home gym. This is easy easy easy and ease of use was the main purpose of this revolutionary mechanism. The only problem I have....I would like more weight. I hope they will make dumbbells going from 50 to 100 or even more pounds. And I also hope they make barbell sets with similar mechanism. We are busy people and we have limited time these days. And limited space. I hate spending 5 minutes adjusting weights and then 30 seconds exercising. I want exercise 5 minutes and adjust weights for 3 seconds. Its great I love it.
Bought it from Bowflex saw it on TV checked online and made online purchase. Didnt have money at the moment so instead used financing option. Only 8 bucks a month. Cant beat that. Unfortunately delivery cost 75 dollars I would rather go to the store and spend 350 instead of 425 but Oh well they dont sell it in stores. Ordered on October 19 received on November 16 almost a month. At Bowflex they explained me that demand was too high and therefore long wait.
Well it was worth waiting for. I am very happy. I feel like I am myself in one of those commercials. Those weights look very neat its simply a toy for grown men. Or women. Remember it starts at 5 lbs so everybody can use them. If you want to make a present to somebody this will make the best gift ever. :o)
Here is their website that explains how this mechanism works:
They advertise a lot of extras like a super-neat stand for the dumbbells which cost 129 + 50 dollars shipping = total 179. I was really thinking about buying it but I am very glad I didnt. I am using boxes that dumbbells arrived in as stands and it works just fine (enough not to bend all the way to the floor so I dont hurt my back).
Update January 25, 2005:
Great stuff has been using it for two months now and works just fine. Cool clicking noise on those rotating wheels unfortunately faded but functionality of the equipment is still in top shape. I actually moved dumbbells from my garage to the bedroom which is also an office so I can exercise any time of the day. So far very very happy with the purchase.
