Comments: Ok, to start...the machine was damaged during shipping. There was a piece on the front/lower area that was broken, as well as the back of the display (the fan area). After finally assembling it, it was very noisy, so in adjusting it we come to find a steel piece inside the wheel area was bent out more than a 1/4 inch! after that adjustment it was nice and smooth and quiet. we will have to contact customer service regarding the broken console. we already told them about the plastic piece on the front and they said they would ship a new piece out. now we have to inform them about the back of the console. also, the display doesnt seem to turn off on it's own, we have to unplug it everytime, not major, but certainly annoying. i also have yet to get my iFit cards. i'll post an update after we get to use the machine for a while. As far as set up, my husband did it by himself (he is a carpenter) but it did take a few hours.
