After accidentally dousing my entire bedroom with WD-40 while trying to put this thing together (with the help of my boyfriend), it looks good and works well. The instructions were a little confusing because we didn't have all the washers that they claimed we should have, but it hasn't fallen apart yet, so that's a good sign.
When I would go to the gym, I would only use the elliptical, do some floor exercises, and lift some 5-pounders. Paying $85 a month for that was just preposterous--I was basically paying extra so that other people can get their zumba and pole dancing on. I was looking for a way out, and this was it! This elliptical fits perfectly in my 1br apt. Everyday I wake up and see it there, waiting for me to hop on it. Motivation! I don't even have to take the subway to get to it. Glorious day! With the money that I'm saving, I can even afford to take a couple Bikram Yoga classes a month.
I'm 5'7" and 120 lbs, and the stride isn't too short for me, and I have no problems with it falling apart yet (knock on wood). It wobbled a little bit on my wooden floor, but when I moved it diagonally, it was steady (methinks my floor is a wee bit uneven). It doesn't make any crazy noises like other reviewers said, but if you read my first sentence, you know why. I've been working out on level 6, and that's a good workout for me. (It even triggers my exercise-induced asthma!) Combine that with an ab workout, and I'm feeling goooood.
So if you're semi-lazy, frugal, have the space, and don't like pole dancing, buy this machine. That's what I did!
After searching around for a good elliptical I happened to find this baby buried on this website. I was looking for something affordable for someone on a bit of a budget, but not cheaply built or with no features. I have found a pretty good option here with the Sunny SF-E906 Elliptical. It's rather simple to assemble out of the box and is pretty sturdy for something with a buyer friendly price tag on it, especially compared to other ellipticals on this site. I have also read about people who have problems with the machine unscrewing itself as you workout, good news here is I've had no such problems and its been used daily (sometimes more!) since it arrived and was put together. It's not jampacked with features, but it has a pad that keeps track of helpful things like distance ran, calories burned, time spent on machine, etc. It also has a tension control which is good for me and my wife to be seeing as I like to workout at a more stressful level than she does. My only problem is the stride feels a bit short for me (I'm 6'0') but I can adjust it by putting my feet in a better position just slightly off the pedals. It's probably not the best elliptical out there, but for the money its a heckuva deal if your just looking for a decent machine that won't cost you a fortune.
The product is very good for the money and for someone on a budget. The base is a little unstable but I don't feel like it is going to fall over. The handle bars and stablizer bars do come loose and have to be re-tightened. The tension knob works well. All in all if you are looking for a good product without spending a lot of money, this is the one for you. I am very happy with my puchase.
I enjoy this product as I have nerve damage in one leg and cannot use a treadmill. This product lets me exercise my legs and works well for me. It isn't too large, which I like and I keep it in my office and it doesn't take up too much room.
Did the product fit true to size? yes
How is the quality of the product? very good
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
Received the product very quickly and it assembled in less than 30 minutes! The instructions are broken into steps and the tools and screws you will need to use are in indivdual baggies labeled with the coordinating step-GENIUS and foolproof! We are just starting to build up our home gym and this is the perfect starter machine. Everything works wonderfully and we love working out on it. Only negative is that we have it on a cement garage floor and it slides across the room when you are running on it (like 2 feet of movement in 30 minutes). Definitley put this on a non-skid surface and you'll be set!
How accurate was the sizing? Exactly as it appeared

I got this because I have bad knees. This is EXACTLY what "the doctor ordered!" I use it in the morning and in the evening. It has helped me out with my sore knees, muscles, and overall health. It is small enough to have in my living room so that it can stare at me if I do not ride it at least 1x a day!!! Low impact for those who enjoy walking/running!
I am so pleased with my purchase of this elliptical trainer. The assembly went well and the machine seems well made for the price. I have used it three times a week for nearly a month and it fits both my space and my purpose perfectly. The whole experience has been a pleasant surprise- well done Overstock.com, well done.

How do I keep the handle bars in place? The round cap keeps popping off and the handles fall off during my workout.katbolus on Mar 17, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
If all the screws and nuts are in the correct spots and tight the bars should not be coming off, also the caps should either be clicked on or pushed on so they cannot come off.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 19, 2012
