Comments: Now that I have my elliptical together, it's great. Easy to use and so quiet I can use it in the same room as the rest of my family while they watch TV. Now for the assembly. First of all, make sure you have a strong man there to help you move the base from the wooden pallet it is delivered on. Mine had to go up my front steps and then back to the basement. Second, our assembly required more tools than specified. We found the arms to attach to the foot parts were skewed and didn't align with the holes drilled in the tubes. We ended up have to use metal punches to get the holes to finally align (we realized this was due to the thickness of the paint near the base). Besides mating the two parts to connect the foot steps the rest of the assembly was easy. And like another reviewer said, make sure to have someone hold the bar so it doesn't fall on you! I love it now, the speakers are great and I'd definitely suggest paying to have it assembled if you and a friend aren't very strong or are mechanically challenged!
