Comments: Pros: The stability and smooth "range of motion" action of the Freestrider 35S makes one forget he or she is having a workout. Today, in my second only workout, my teeshirt was literally soaked, but I felt like I could have gone another 40 minutes. The machine lives up to its early high praise within the industry. Cons: Nordic Track should do a better job informing (warning) customers of the following: (1)You will need at least two strong men to get the thing down into your basement - it's a monster weight-wise. (2)Also, if you are not handy, you might plan to get some help putting it together. I'm very good that way, but it still took me a couple hours. But on balance, my wife and I are extremely happy with the unit. It's revolutionary.
