After shipping, they want over $150 for the replacement parts to fix my elliptical after the pedal broke off whenever-ago that it happened. The whole thing cost me something like $350, so that’s nearly half the original cost because the thing broke less than a year later, and of course, because I didn’t buy the extended warranty, it was only covered for a measley 90 days. I guess that’s what I get for expecting to find a quality piece of exercise equipment for such a low price.

This weekend I’m going to go to Home Depot to see if I can find anything any cheaper. I know that the cover would need to come right from ProForm, but the screws are just hex screws and the cross bars are just a couple of pieces of steel bolted together. Cheap piece of crap…
