    Cons: Readout is way too complicated

    Pros: Solid metal construction; nice exercise programs
    Cons: Plastic parts prone to shipping damage; my pulse grips have never worked

    Pros: Very well made. Adjusts for long legs. Workout profiles are good.
    Cons: It's a struggle to get the covers off.

    Summary: I've had mine for years. Initially, the pedals slipped. I took it apart and found the tensioner on the drive belt was installed backward. If I weren't mechanically inclined, I wouldn't have figured out how it was supposed to be assembled. It worked ... read more
