Bought ours about 2 weeks ago. My husband wanted an elliptical and I wanted a bike so thought this was pretty great. The first we ordered online and it had a crack so took that back and the next one also had a small crack. It still works fine. Academy did give us 15 percent back when I filled out a different review, which was nice because I never asked for money back or anything. I love that the machine isn't too bulky and you can go back and forth between elliptical and bike easily. I

PROs vs. CONs
lets start with the Cons! Squeaky noise! If you can handle a little squeaky noise then you will be fine. If you have a size 11 or more your feet will not fit! Pros- Easy assembly! All the parts are labeled took maybe 45 minutes . The stand up elliptical is very smooth no complaints there and the biggest surprise is the actual Bike aspect it's awesome! Overall it's a good workout but if your expecting an elliptical like the gym or more professional style then this is not the one for you! You will

This machine isn't what I thought it would be. It it isn't stable and it rocks when in use. I would have returned it but I had already pay for assembly. Will just have to make the best of it. I had tried a different one in store (same brand ) it was better.

Exactly what I was looking for.
I did my homework. I was looking for a gym like experience without breaking the bank and I found it. Assembly was not overwhelming, I took my time and it may have taken me between one and a half to two hours to assemble. The machine is really quiet (I wasn't't looking for that but I think it is a good thing). It seems like it will last a long time and I am very pleased with the purchase.
Bought this onsale at Academy. The eliptical part has an issue. The trainer is too harrow. If you are standing up and trying to use it, it wobbles from side to side. Also, the foot peddles are too close to the front and not adjustable. The "bike" portion works pretty good but here's what I had to do. 1st, I added a plywood base that widens the base and fixes the problem with center of gravity. No more wobble. 2nd. I had to buy a larger seat from 3rd party as the existing hurts you after a while.

I love this 2 in 1 trainer. Its great. I can sit and ride bicycle them I can stand right up and really work my legs. I love love love it. I have been on it everyday since I received it in the mail a few weeks ago ;o and it doesn't wobble at all like people are complaining about. You all must not be putting it together right.
